Sandy Santa


I accidentally bought one too many Lush gift sets before Christmas (did I really, or is that just my excuse?!) No really, I did. This santa scrub was included in said set, so I thought I'd have to use it up over the festive period... it would be rude not to. 

Sandy Santa is a citrus flavoured body scrub, perfect for getting rid of that wintery skin. I used this in the shower and was very impressed with the results. If your skin isn't too dry, you can quickly use this scrub and get away with not having to use a moisturiser afterwards due to the orange, rosewood and sandalwood oils. I also only use a third of the scrub at a time, as the whole thing would be way too much for me. So you can get about 3 uses out of a product this size - bargain!

I have to say though, Santa's red hat did create a massive mess in my bathroom. The dye is really pigmented and went absolutely everywhere! Luckily it didn't stain at all, but it did temporarily look like there'd been some awful accident in my bathroom. 

Overall, I love this scrub and I'll be definitely looking at Lush's other scrubs for a less festive replacement very soon! Have you tried any of Lush's body scrubs? x

  2. I've also got this too, I'm yet to use it though. I have fake tan on for tonight's festivities so it'll be great for exfoliating afterwards :D xx
