I love a good exfoliator, but sometimes you can buy one that's perfect in a lot of ways, but doesn't actually exfoliate so well. (Which always makes me wonder - who approved the product? Shouldn't an exfoliator, you know, exfoliate?) You won't have that problem with LUSH's new Brimstone Shower Scrub. In fact, I kept having to remind myself to go easier when I was using it - it's that powerful. For $4.95, you get a "block" of the product to take into the shower with you. Then all you have to do is rub it over your wet skin to let the exfoliation magic begin. Because it has sulphur (which normally smells... not great) they've used jasmine absolute in it as well to mask the scent, which works wonders because I thought it smelled delightful and not at all sulphury. After I got out of the shower, my skin was so soft - you can definitely tell it works if you compare it to other, non-Brimstoned skin. The only thing to take note of - much like a gremlin, you really shouldn't get your Brimstone wet because it seems to dissolve if it gets water poured directly on it (using it on wet skin is fine though). I stupidly left mine under my dripping showerhead and it dissolved into a puddle of scrub overnight. Although come to think of it, didn't gremlins actually multiply when they got wet? How cool would it be if Brimstone could do that, too? You could wake up to an entire shower full of Brimstones! Who wouldn't love that?
