Another little LUSH review for you (I seem to do these every once in a while but I really have been enjoying LUSH products). This time I tried The Olive Branch Shower Gel and the Rub Rub Rub Shower Scrub.
THE OLIVE BRANCH has a a 4.4 out of 5 average rating on the LUSH website and is supposed to leave you with “peaceful skin”. I would have to say that it does just that. First of all let me just say that this shower gel seems unlike any other bath product I’ve ever used. It’s really pungent but it feels natural and fresh, I love the lasting power of the scent on my skin as well. I’d describe it as a super slick kind of a product and it really glides over the skin and leaves it feeling super smooth. It works well with a scrunchy or you can lather it straight onto your body. A lot of reviews talk about its watery consistency and while this is true to a point, you really need to be using the product to its full potential (lathering it up) and in doing so this little bottle has actually lasted me quite a long time. It separates so you have to shake it up before use but once you’ve done that it really is a great, unique product.
RUB RUB RUB has a 4.7 out of 5 average rating on the LUSH website and leaves you feeling “freshly scrubbed”. Oh my goodness, this is probably my all time favourite LUSH product, certainly my favourite exfoliator. I have quite sensitive skin and while this does feel quite abrasive it definitely doesn’t feel damaging and I haven’t experienced any negative effects from using it. If I use this on my legs before shaving they are smoother than I have felt them since I was a child, honestly. This product is heaven and I cannot recommend it enough. It’s reasonably priced, it lasts a long time and it does a brilliant job of making my skin feel smooth and refreshed. I know I’ll be repurchasing this time and time again. /gushing
Hope you enjoyed my reviews, let me know your favourite LUSH products!

Rub rub rub is my favourite scrub ever! Makes my skin so smooth and smells amazing. Apparently you can use it on dry skin for a more abrasive scrub but my skin is so sensitive I’ve never tried it.
Doesn’t it just? Such a gem. I’ve noticed that it’s great for softening the slightly harder skin of my elbows, perfect to use before fake tan. xx
Yeah definitely it’s really lovely, and it’s so refreshing! xx
I’ve been wanting to try Rub Rub Rub for the longest time, and I think I’m going to have to get it now!
I honesty can’t recommend it enough. 🙂 xx
I’ve heard so much about rub rub rub! Now I just want it because you said it makes your legs smooth haha x
It’s one of those ones that really lives up to the hype! One of the best spontaneous purchase I’ve made in a long time. xx
I have never tried Rub Rub Rub, but it looks amazing! Looks like i’m going to be making a cheeky purchase soon – any excuse to go to Lush!
I actually asked the shop assistant what her favourite product was and she pointed it out to me and tried a little on my hand. I’d never have thought to try it before that. And I know how you feel. I cannot walk by a Lush without going in and all the great reviews are such a bad influence on my bank balance! xx
I love Lush shower gels, so refreshing! This one sounds lovely too 🙂
Oh it really is. What’s your favourite? xx
I love the look of that scrub its so funky! Everything in lush just smells amazing to me I never know what to choose!!
Me too! I always end up talking to the assistants about their favourite products and they’re so good at suggesting new ones to try! xx
I love their “Its Raining Men” Shower Gel it smells so sweet and i can’t stop buying it, try it when you next go into Lush 🙂 x
Oh really? I will most definitely have to take a look, I’ve not heard of that one! Thanks for the recommendation. xx
Love LUSH. Sadly I live no where near one now. I remember discovering them over ten years ago in London…I was hooked. The Olive Branch is divine and now with Fall/Autumn around the corner it is an appropriate scent for the season. I’ve actually never tried Rub, Rub, Rub. 🙂

Oh I could not agree more about The Olive Branch, it’s definitely going to be an autumn staple for me. I’ve only really started enjoying LUSH this year and I’m so glad I have, it’s definitely become a must visit on every shopping trip. xx
I can almost smell it now, hehe. 🙂
