Ah, packaging. Isn’t it dandy when product packaging is changed for the better? I remember buying Rub Rub Rub from Lush when it was in a bottle and I hated it. The salt settled to the bottom and was a giant pain to get out of the bottle. I tossed out the bottle and never thought about again, until about a year ago when I randomly walked into a Lush store and saw a display of Rub Rub Rub, except now they were in those recyclable black tubs. Score!
Rub Rub Rub is is like the love child of a body scrub and a shower gel. I keep this by the bathtub and give it a shake and a stir, then scrub up from neck to toe. The salt dissolves in the bathwater – and don’t forget, a little bit of salt softens the skin! – and leaves a little bit of oil on my skin, so it makes a kickin’ rad pre shave treatment. Scrub up, rinse off, shave away.
I find the scent a little hit or miss depending on the batch. Sometimes the fresh lemon juice, orange and jasmine oils combine to create a refreshing tangy beachy scent, and other times all I can smell is Windex. I mean, I love the smell of Windex and all, but it isn’t something I want to take in the bath with me.
Apart from the occasional scent du window cleaner, Rub Rub Rub is a pretty nice all ’round body scrub for my occasionally reactive and itchy skin. Plus hey, it’s a bangin’ hand and foot scrub too. M-m-m-multitask!
