It’s safe to say that we’re obsessed with Lush Cosmetics! Not only do they have awesome body products, but they’re cruelty free and are fighting against fur! One step into the store and we’re grabbing every bar of soap we can get our hands on. I (Katie) picked up a lush holiday gift set after Christmas when they went on BoGo. I since have ripped open the box and forgotten the official name of it, but it was filled with lots of goodies that I want to share. Here are some of my favorites:
- Ponche Shower Gel: The scent of Ponche shower gel is a mix of fruity and spicy. I’m not usually a fan of fruity smells, but this one wasn’t too strong. My husband can use it without smelling too girly. Ponche includes plum, orange, cinnamon, buchu oil and a shot of tequila. Over all Ponche lathers well and smells pretty good.
- Snow Globe: I think this was my favorite product out of the whole box. Snow globe fills the shower with an amazing citrus smell. Filled with grapefruit, lemon, lemongrass oil and ylang ylang it’s sure to wake you up. This too is appropriate for both men and women. I like to cut my bars of lush soap into smaller bars so that they don’t sit in the shower forever and get gross, which is what i did with this one so hopefully it lasts a while!
- Sugar Scrub: The lavender, fennel and ginger gave this product a wonderful earthy smell. I started off by rubbing the bar on while still wet, but it was way too rough for my sensitive skin. I tried again by breaking a piece up in my hands before rubbing it on my skin, and I loved it. The granules buffed away all of the dead particles and left me feeling like my skin was glowing, it was so smooth and soft. I definitely recommend this product. If you have sensitive skin like I do, don’t rub it directly onto your skin without breaking it up first though!
- Each Peach Massage Bar: Although the name is each peach this bar ended up smelling more citrusy once applied. I used this one on my legs after shaving, because I usually get really dry. It was a little greasy in my hands but felt nice afterwards. My legs never felt dry and I never got razor burn, but they also stayed greasy for several hours. I haven’t used this for an actual massage, but since is is pretty slippery I think it would work well.
