Lush Sugar Scrub and Lush Sugar Babe Review

Can you guess what this is?

Nope, it's not a sugar cookie actually it's not a cookie of any kind. Not a Chinese dumpling either. In fact you can't eat it at all but that doesn't mean it's not good for you and your body!

Click ahead to find out what it is!

Those of you who guessed that it's a Lush Sugar Scrub guessed correctly! Looks kinda edible doesn't it?

Ok, you need these in your life. You need these if your skin is rough and flaky. You need them if you want a moisturizing exfoliating scrub that's sooooooo super luxurious. You just need 'em period.

If you love Buffy you'll absolutely adore how Lush has taken exfoliation to the next level with their brand new Lush Sugar Scrubs! The scrubs are delicately packed together lumps of joy. I do say delicate since if you handle them incorrectly and with out a little TLC you'll find yourself with a fist full of sugar, be gentle. Each scrub is packed into a dome, raised cookie shape kinda like a scone! The scrubs are available in two versions for $4.95 each and you can probably get one to two uses if you want to super scrub your rough bits or about four uses if you're stingy. As for me I'm terribly rough so I use an entire one for my knees and elbows plus Lush does suggest using one per a shower. The basic idea is to break it in two pieces, wet the area you're working with, wet the scrub in your hand and proceed to rub it anywhere you want smooth, silky skin. The scrub quickly breaks up into grains of sugar and after a little scrubbing they sud up and disappear. They leave behind smooth, silky, moisturized skin. You need to try 'em yourself as they are truly a little joy in the bath and body world.

The two scrubs available are Sugar Scrub and Sugar Babe. Sugar Scrub is Vegan where as Sugar Babe is not.

Sugar Scrub has a herbal lavender scent and is green in color. Lush says it's good for scrubbing away dead skin cells, tackling cellulite, and and invigorating sluggish skin.

Sugar Babe is my favorite of the two. At first sniff I didn't like it as it had a weird sour milk gardenia scent but once it's wet it smells oddly of Lush Snowcake but with quite a bit more of a floral underlay which is a bit lily-like and a bit of gardenia as well. Lush recommends this for upper arms, thighs, and stomach. It has a center of extra virgin coconut oil which is revealed as you scrub. The actual scent is ylang ylang but for me it smells quite like Snowcake when damp. Loving it!

Lush Sugar Scrubs are available now from

Muse Approved for purchase! I love these. Absolutely an awesome idea and a great product for getting smooth, silky Summer skin.

Anyone try yet?

Loves 'em?

Leaves 'em?

I want, LOVE scrubs! You know, I've NEVER used Lush products before? I moved to a new city & I have a lush store about 4 blocks from my house- and it happens to be about a block away from an awesome gelato shop. I think I need to get my tush down there & get some sweets for my shower & my belly! lol

I love, love, love the Lush products and am UBER grateful I took your advice and splurged on them.

I've even gotten my hubby to use them and he likes them as well.

BTW, I get more than a couple of uses out of them because I'm super careful with using them and then keep them in a plastic baggy when not in use.

aw that's so awesome livejunkiemusic :D

They are def easy to use a few times...I've been taking to cutting them in half or even four parts if I'm feeling stingy :-D as it's enough sugar to get a good scrub.

So glad you're a lush lover now!
