Huzzah! I received my first Lush Christmas goodies today from the UK. My order consisted of a large bottle of Snow Fairy hair and shower gel, Buche de Noel face cleanser, Snowcake soap, Gingerbread House bubble bar, Snow Fairy lip tint, Golden Wonder bath ballistic and a Magic Wand bubble bar. I also ordered one non-Christmas item for my boyfriend, Ice Blue shampoo! He’s in love with anything -mint (peppermint, spearmint).
I can already tell that I’ll be putting in another order for Snow Fairy (shower gel and lip tint). Reviews to come!
Lush has just released a new skincare campaign today! The best part of this campaign are the limited edition trial size pots that they’ve made available so that you can try out which face moisturizer works best for you. Costs range from $3.95 to $9.95 and each moisturizer is available (even Gorgeous!).
They’ve also loaded up the website with a couple simple guides in helping you find out what may work best for your skin type. Here are the links to the cleanser guide and moisturizer guide. Like always, you can also just pop in to your local store and ask the associates for help in choosing a routine that’s right for you.
The beautiful artwork that is currently online and in stores was created by Mariah. The illustrations are wonderful and speak volumes in communicating a big part in what I feel Lush is all about. She’s a very talented gal!
Lush has recently released a special edition of Sea Vegetable, Shark Fin soap, in support of their latest campaign to ban shark finning. The process of shark finning is cruel and torturous to the shark. Often times sharks are caught, brought aboard a ship, the fin is cut off of the living shark and the shark is then thrown back into the water where it is left to die by suffocation, bleeding to death or being eaten by others. Additionally, sharks are in danger of being overfished due to this growing practice, altering the natural eco system of the ocean.
Shark finning is a lucrative industry due to the high demand for shark fin soup in many countries. You can do your part by boycotting any restaurant that serves shark fin soup. Shark Fin soap is available online and in stores for $5.95 for 3.5oz. Lush is donating 100% of the profits from Shark Fin soap to Shark Savers, a non-profit organization whose mission is to protect the sharks.
