LUSH: Fresh Handmade Cosmetics

Monday, April 1, 2013
Walk by a LUSH store, and it will take all your might not to be lured by the fresh and sweet aromas inside. No, I am not talking about the smells of food. I am talking about the sweet smell of beauty and cosmetic products.

On a recent trip to Short Hills Mall in New Jersey, as my daughters and I strolled the mall, we caught the fragrances that were emitted from the LUSH store. So bewitched we were by these wonderful smells that we just had to venture into the store.

LUSH makes fresh, all-natural cosmetics that are not tested on animals. With 150 stores in North America, LUSH is catering to the eco-conscious consumer who wants fun and high-quality products. The bright, colorful products make up for the monochromatic decor of the stores. Basic black walls with chunky white, artful writing adorn the stores.

It is as much a feast for the eyes as it is for the nose.

LUSH specializes in bath, body, face, and hair products. Everything from facial cleansers and moisturizers to shampoos and conditioners to body butters and bath bombs, LUSH's handmade products are the perfect excuse to pamper yourself.

It was a hard decision, but we finally decided on 2 bath bombs. We chose the "Twilight" and the "Sex" bombs.

The "Twilight" bath bomb promises to fend off the demons of insomnia with lavender. This gentle bath bomb is sure to have you relaxed and ready for bedtime.

The "Sex" bath bomb has scents of jasmine, sage, and ylang ylang. The soya milk in the bomb makes your skin silky smooth and soft all over.

Most bath bombs retail for around $6.50.

Undoubtedly, one of the best products LUSH makes is the "Charity Pot", a hand and body lotion. What sets the "Charity Pot" apart from other hand and body lotions? Well, 100% of its proceeds are donated to grass roots charitable organizations. In fact, since 2007, LUSH has donated more than $3,800,000 to grass roots charities in 30 countries.

Disclosure: I was not compensated for this post. I just loved LUSH's products and its philsophy and wanted to share with others.
