I’ve been in love with Lush’s scrubs lately. I’ve always had a deep-rooted love for Lush scrubs, but some of their new scrubs seem to have a different texture, which I love even more than the regular liquid ones. I’ve been obsessed with The Old Songs Are Waking, but I’ve found myself to keep buying the newer scrubs whenever they’re released. Today I’ll be reviewing another sugar scrub for you, which is one from the delicious and mouth-watering smelling Sticky Dates scent family.

What is it?

Lush Sticky Dates Sugar Scrub costs £10.00 / $15.00 / €12,00 (135g) and is available in 135g (4.7oz) and 290g (10.2oz). It’s part of the Easter 2024 range, along with the Sticky Dates body lotion. This sugar scrub is yet another gorgeous-looking product by Lush. The scrub itself is gold and glittery, like Golden Egg, and you know how much I love that product. From my experience, I know that sugar scrubs like these are pretty economical in use. A tiny amount of scrub is enough to cover your whole body with.

This sugar scrub is perfect for exfoliating your body, getting rid of dead skin cells and promoting healthy looking, smooth and glowing skin. I’m a big fan of scrubbing, I take a good scrub 1-2 times per week. (Depending on the roughness of the scrub) A sugar scrub often tens to be a little more harsh on the skin, just like sea salt-based scrubs.

What’s inside?

Ingredients: Caster Sugar, Golden Caster Sugar, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Sodium Cocoamphoacetate, Fair Trade Organic Cocoa Butter, Argan Oil, Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, Perfume, Carob Resinoid, Benzoin Resinoid, Sandalwood Oil, Date Syrup, Titanium Dioxide, Lauryl Betaine, Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Tin Oxide, Silica, Colour 77491

There’s two types of sugar as main ingredient–caster and golden caster sugar. The only difference is that golden caster sugar is unrefined, and therefore would contain more caramel flavours. Great tip for those who love baking! There’s a good amount of cocoa butter inside as well, and we all know the benefits of this ingredient–moisturising, helps improves skin elasticity, and so on. Argan oil is a great moisturiser as well, I sometimes mix a little bit with my body lotion when my skin is really flaky and dry. Coconut oil is another moisturiser. Carob and benzoin resinoid are added for their comforting, warm aroma. Sandelwood oil diffuses a warm, sweet and woody aroma. At last, date syrup, which acts like a humectant–it retains moisture, but is probably also added for its amazing scent.


The scent is amazing, but that’s no surprise looking at the ingredients list! It’s a warm, rich, sweet gourmand scent. Baked cookies, vanilla beans, caramel treats, crème brûlée, you name it. It’s not overly sweet, it has a perfect amount of woody notes in it, but also a tiny hint of spicyness. Like I mentioned in the body lotion review, lovers of Honey I Washed the Kids and Let The Good Times Roll will absolutely adore this scrumptious scent. It’s perfect for pairing it with the Sticky Dates shower gel, and after that, the Sticky Dates body spray.

What do I think?

The first thing that I noticed is that the entire scrub is glittery, and not just the top layer! It’s such a gorgeous scrub to see. Unfortunately, on the skin, there are no glitters left behind. My skin does however look incredibly shiny, it has a gorgeous glow. My skin feels super smooth, supple and hydrated. There’s no more dry skin, just a skin that’s so radiant and shiny–almost like a mirror! I let the scrub sit for a few minutes on my skin and afterwards, I can smell a slight smell of burnt caramel and vanilla on my skin. I’m head over heels, what an amazing scrub this is. There’s not a single scrub by Lush that’s ever let me down–but this one is definitely in my top 5 of favorite scrubs!

If you’re doubting whether you should buy this scrub, take it from me: yes, you should buy it. It does wonders for your skin. If your skin is dry and bumpy, you’ll adore this scrub. It’s also very gentle for a sugar scrub, I even know some people who use this scrub on their face, so it’s safe to on sensitive skins. Grab yourself a pot, before it’s gone!
