while i would never count myself as one of those moms who buys organic-
i have become hooked on lush products recently, and love the way they have
added an element of healthfulness and freshness to my daily routine!
for those of you who are not familiar with the brand- the products are
100% vegetarian, 83% vegan and 60% preservative-free. they are created without
animal-testing, made from fresh, organic fruits and vegetables, and are packaged in
recycled plastic tubs, with labels that include expiration dates and pictures
of the people that actually made them!
on top of all that- lush products are so much FUN.
remember when you were a kid and bath time was something to look forward to??
lush provides one of the best ways to luxuriate after a long day at work,
or a cold day in the snow (or both!)
here are a few of my favorite things:
(click images for product links!)
bubblegum lip scrub: are your lips chapped from harsh winter winds or (in my case)
from wearing too much lipstick? well, look no further than this sugary scrub that not
only helps to slough off that extra rough lip layer, but also tastes delicious
while doing so!
mask of magnaminty: this ultimate face mask can be used weekly to exfoliate and
re-freshen skin. it feels tingly on the skin and smells sublime. the thick, rough
texture feels so right on your face.
big sea salt shampoo: the lather! the lather!
whether you use this or the shampoo bars, you will not get over the bubbles
that come from even the smallest hint of product. i am obsessed with the way this
shampoo makes my hair feel and smell and look. in love.
sympathy for the skin hand & body lotion:
OMG. this lotion is soft and lovely. it's made from bananas-- BANANAS!!!
i lather myself in it every night before going to sleep and every morning,
and i never tired of the smell or texture. you NEED this.
ps. i was not provided with any of these samples and have written about
lush purely out of my own obsession with the brand :)
