Description

Cleansing lime, coconut & sea salt scrub.
Oh, we do like to be beside the seaside. Sea salt and seaweed are full of lovely minerals. Ocean Salt is like taking your face on a trip to the seaside for an invigorating splash in the water, then cleansing and refreshing it with lemon, grapefruit and lime juices, moisturising and softening it with fresh avocado and calming it with violet leaf absolute.

Directions

Use it on oily skin every day and use it to refresh and remineralise dry skin once a week.
Dampen desired area and apply scrub to face and body using circular motion to exfoliate, detoxify, and refresh the skin. Rinse thoroughly after use.

Ingredients

Fine Sea Salt, Fresh Grapefruit Infusion (Citrus grandis), Coarse Sea Salt, Stearic Acid, Fresh Organic Lime Extracted in Vodka (Citrus aurantifolia), Sodium Cocoamphoacetate, Glycol Cetearate, Triethanolamine, Fresh Avocado Butter (Persea gratissima), Extra Virgin Coconut Oil (Cocos nucifera), Lime Oil (Citrus aurantifolia), Seaweed Absolute (Fucus vesiculosus), Violet Leaf Absolute (Viola odorata), Glycerine, Lanolin, Cetearyl Alcohol, *Limonene, *Linalool, Perfume, Colour 42090, Methylparaben, Propylparaben
* Occurs naturally in Essential Oils

Strongest points
This scrub smells absolutely divine and even has a hint of vodka and lime in it! I really enjoy using this product because you can make it as gentle as you want or as rough as you want depending on how much water you use with it. I love how it doesn't strip your skin from all oils but also moisturises it as well. I use it on my face, but it can also be used as a body scrub so it's really versatile!
Weakest points
Around the eye area it can become sensitive.

I tried this first instore on the back of my hand, which was very good, but then the skin on the hands aren't as sensitive as the facial area. I dampened my face, then gather some Ocean Salt with my fingers and applied. This got a little messy, I would recommend after dampening yur face, drying your hands, this gives a better control of the scrub, if they are wet then the scrub kinda goes everywhere, and starts to slip off. So you aren't getting as an effective exfoliation on your face. Plus if some of the Ocean salt does go over the mouth area, be perpared for a rather strong dose and taste of salt!! The product does smell really fresh and limey...this tends to make you forget their is a large concentrate of sea salt within. After rinsing, all the scrub was easily removed, the drying, my skin did feel alittle tingly and tight...but after a few minutes it softened..skin felt nice and smooth..moisturising felt much better. I would use this about once/twice aweek to keep skin fresh.

This does lather a little but is really a really uplifting and bracing scrub. I do find that some of the salty bits can be a bit large and harsh so sometimes I crush the scrub a bit with a pestle and mortar to crush the salt bits a bit more so they are not so scratchy.

The smell is great and even though it tastes a bit soapy it is very much like a tequila cocktail to taste !!I got a bit in my mouth when wiping my face with my hand once!

Summary
I love this scrub. Alot of people have said that they find it too harsh on their skin but personally i love the fact that it gives you a really good exfoliation. i use this every morning and it leaves me feeling fresh, clean and awake.
it did sting the first time i used it but i think i got a little carried away with the rubbing.. had no problems since.
i have also noticed a big improvement in my skin and will be purchising again.
