LUSH Handmade Cosmetics (Review)

as a mother of three i get to be alone for about 7 minutes a day for my daily shower. in that seven minutes i squeeze in a lather, rinse (& sometimes a repeat), face washing, body cleansing, exfoliating, shaving and about five seconds where i actually enjoy the warm water on my face.

incorporating LUSH into this routine has turned that shower into seven minutes spa-ing (not actually a word). LUSH finds importance in those short moments of cleansing by creating products that will take you from grubby to scrumptious. LUSH cosmetics are handmade deliciousness filled with herb, flower infusions, fresh fruits and vegetables with just the right amount of product to get the dirt off.

their tongue-in-cheek names and descriptions will put a smile on your face which is why i am pleased to introduce you:

  1. Seanik Solid Shampoo - yes, a solid shampoo is an anomaly, but a fun one. this shampoo uses seaweed for silkiness, salt for volume & body and lemon for shine. this solid shampoo turns a dull chore into a trip to the beach.
  2. Dirty Springwash Shower Gel - how to use: get naked, hop in the shower, lather up. [directions courtesy of LUSH] love the fragrance of this gel and the minty-ness of it leaves you feeling refreshed.
  3. Breath of Fresh Air Toner Water - this product is great for the dog days of summer (why hello there 60+ days of 90 degree temps). spritz at the pool or when cleansing, either one is refreshing.
  4. Ocean Salt Face & Body Scrub - they take the lime and the coconut...and mix them together for my favorite product of the group. thank you Madu for an awesome scrub. you may be wondering 'Who is Madu?' LUSH places the name and the picture of the person who created your product on the packaging. just slightly creepy when i see Madu's face staring at me in the shower.

i told you these products were deliciousness. so good you could almost eat them. almost.

this week is dedicated to reviewing some great products i have been testing, swatching, wearing and washing. i can't wait to share them with you as well as offer some additional giveaways. stay tuned for what's to come.
