Lush Life’s A Beach Body Scrub Powder

Sydney has been under water this week – my inner city suburb is more or less flooded out – so having a little pot of beachy summer nearby has been particularly ace. Lush Life’s A Beach Body Scrub Powder is an Australia and New Zealand exclusive product to benefit 1 Million Women’s Great Barrier Reef conservation campaign. 100% of the proceeds from each pot sold (minus GST) is donated to #1MW’s goal to have the World Heritage Committee officially declare the reef ‘world heritage in danger’.

This vegan-friendly dry body scrub is made of sea salt and fine grains of sand, with a light melony scent. It’s a dry scrub, so you can either keep it dry and scrub down wet skin (great for oily skin), or add a little water to make a paste or mix it with a touch of body wash if your skin is more dry or sensitive.

The melon scent is quite mild and fresh, like you’re sitting on the beach eating a big cold slice of rockmelon or honeydew. The scrub honestly reminds me of being a teenager on the beach and using the sand to scrub my bod to polished smoothness. I don’t ever get time to go to the beach these days – the last time would be five years ago, easily – so it’s nice to have a little touch of summer in a pot.

“If we lose the Great Barrier Reef, what can’t we lose. We are calling on the World Heritage committee to officially declare the reef world heritage in danger and send a message to our government to stop further development that harms the reef and to protect it for generations to come.”
– Natalie Isaacs, CEO & Founder of 1 Million Women

I grew up on the Queensland coast and spent a lot of time around the south end of the reef, including some cherished memories of snorkelling with the manta rays on the reefs around Lady Elliott Island. I hope that my nieces and nephews get to make the same memories of a living reef without it being destroyed by malicious government policy driven by shortsighted corporate interests.
