My January Hero | Ocean Salt

I don't know about you guys, but post-Christmas, and midway through winter, my skin is crying out for some TLC. And there's only so much moisturiser you can slather on in one go! Both my face and body has felt dry and a little rough around the edges, which is no surprise given the fact that I do live in northern Scotland and basically haven't seen the sun for a good four months. (One day that beach house in Wilmington will be mine - and I will say goodbye to long dark winters!) 

Whilst browsing my local Lush store, I spotted the face and body scrub Ocean Salt and decided to give it a whirl. With a list of ingredients including sea salt, organic lime (extracted in vodka!!), avocado butter and extra virgin coconut oil, this product is packed with goodness.

The scent is fresh and beachy which is a winner in my book. Now onto the formula - Ocean Salt is a rich body scrub which can be applied to the face and body. I was a bit apprehensive to use it on my face in case it was too harsh, but the avocado and coconut gives it a lot of softness. I was surprised how moisturising the scrub is compared with others I've tried - after washing it off, my skin felt smooth and super conditioned, so much so that you could definitely get away without following it up with a moisturiser. And although it smooths the skin, it doesn't leave a oily film like some scrubs can - thumbs up! After using it, my skin looked smooth and my face in particular had a subtle glow. Applying make-up was a breeze!

Ocean Salt comes in at £13.95 which I don't think is too bad considering how effective it is, and it's the type of product I'll only use once or twice a week so I'm sure it'll last me a while.

I think this scrub is perfect for brightening up dull winter skin, but I can imagine I will use it all year round! Have you tried Ocean Salt?
