Review: Lux Shea Exfoliating Scrub & Tropical Sunset Body Wash

These scrummy smelling bottles were in my MBBE bag and I took them out to try last week.

These body washes are the latest addition to Lux's body wash range and are soap free and pH balanced. Usually I provide ingredients listings of the prorducts but these shower washes come in clear bottles and I can't photograph the ingredients writing clearly without the product inside obscuring it. If I find a way, I'll come back later and update this post. 

Lux Shea Exfoliating Scrub Body Wash
  • Smells delicious, almost like chocolate caramel syrup. I was worried that it would smell like washing myself with candy syrup but surprisingly the scent is more watered down with a nutty hint during use - I actually really liked it :) 
  • Contains micro-beads to gently exfoliate and reveal more poslished skin while shea butter and sunflower oil sooth and hydrates to keep skin soft. 
  • Gave a good creamy lather like any good shower gel would. 
  • I left the shower feeling refreshed, clean and well moisturised. This is fast becoming my new favourite shower wash.
Lux Tropical Sunset Body wash
  • Pina colada anyone? Definitely sent me into tropical island fantasy overdrive. The scent is very refreshing during use with the citrus overtones coming through. 
  • Contains mango and grapefruit oils to moisturise skin and condition
  • Mr. Yoyo loves this to wake him up in morning showers with its fruity scent and rich lathering formula that left his skin nice and smooth.
Rating: 9/10. Affordable everyday luxuries that gives a 'scentual' experience during shower times. 
RRP A$5.99 for 400ml. Available in supermarkets, pharmacies and Priceline now.

  1. Just finished the scrub, smells so yummy and Belle always sneaks a lick when I do dry body scrub.

  2. That big bottle is going to take me a while to use up but thanks for the dry body scrub tip. I shall try it tonight :)
