Lush The Rough With The Smooth Body Scrub

Lush rough with smooth exfoliating body scrub

New year, new start? I do have to admit that there’s something about January that makes me what to have a nice fresh start and somewhere in my head that means exfoliating. I mean I kind of see the logic but err yeah, your guess is as good as mine. 

Bizarre connection aside, one product I have been loving lately is this gem from Lush Cosmetics. Half with little nodules, half smooth, the aptly named Rough with the Smooth is an exfoliating body scrub bar that  really packs a punch. A mix of granulated sugar and murmur butter, after a once over with this bad boy your skin is baby soft from the very first use. As with every Lush product the scent is fabulous. Think of it as vanilla with a kick, all thanks to black pepper and patchouli oil, very reminicent of Lord of Misrule Bath Ballistic.

I do like that it’s a bar rather than a pot as it gives you the perfect amount of product without any waste. However, I would recommend an initial rub over with the bar, before following it up with just your hand, otherwise you will end up with excess product and a lot of wastage,  

Does anyone else associate January with a product? Let me know so I don’t feel too weird.
