Lush is a company whose products are spoken about a lot by bloggers, everyone is in love with their products and why wouldn't you be?! Everything that they sell is amazing but I thought I would give you guys a little more of an understanding as to why they are such a great company to support.
Lush have said again and again that they don't support animal testing whatsoever and it's great to see a company practice what they preach:
“Not only is LUSH passionate about the animal testing policy, our passion also extends to the commitment we have to sourcing ingredients from suppliers that are congruent with our ethics and standards”.All of their products are vegan as well, which ensures that no form of animal derived products were used and no animals were harmed in any part of the production process. Their products are made from ethically sourced ingredients, handmade fresh locally, their products help reduce landfill and they support grassroots charities!
They have had a countless amount of campaigns that show that they aren't afraid to make an impression as each campaign has been very 'in your face' and actually make an impact. An example of this is a campaign that they did a few years ago where they hired a female actor and in the window of their busiest store in London had someone treat her as if she was an animal undergoing animal testing. This received many positive and negative responses BUT at the end of the day it brought more attention to the issue and had a lot more people signing petitions. They don't only have campaigns about issues relating to the use of animals in the beauty world but also for topics like marriage equality and asylum seekers.
I absolutely love Lush and I always look forward to their Christmas range. Here are some of their Christmas range products that I recommend.
Sandy Santa Scrub
This limited edition sugar scrub scrubs away dry skin and exfoliates to leave your skin silky-smooth and smelling gorgeous. This year Lush have added coconut oil and butters, such as murumuru and organic shea butter, which makes it more beneficial for you skin. It is scented with a combination of orange, rosewood, and sandalwood oils that not only give it it's beautiful scent but also hydrates the skin as you scrub. I have really dry skin so am careful when it comes to scented products and exfoliators but this actually works really well for my skin!
Father Christmas Bath Ballistic
This is an zesty smelling bath bomb has mandarin oil, bergamot oil and orange blossom absolute in it which, like all Lush products is really relaxing and beneficial for your body. When you drop him into your bathtub he turns the water from a brilliant red to a deep green and is great for the skin!
Star Light, Star Bright Bath Melt
This bath melt contains cocoa butter, extra virgin coconut oil, Chinese ginger oil, Persian lime oil, lavender oil and a fondant shea butter centre, meaning it is a super moisturising product that is really amazing on the skin and, of course, smells amazing too.
When the star slowly melts it leaves a silvery lustre across the water in a magical trail of starlight through turquoise coloured water. This is definitely one of my favourites because it's so much fun but isn't necessarily practical as the glitter stays on your skin!
Best Wishes Gift
The Best Wishes Gift was first created a few years ago and is deemed a "Christmas classic" as it includes some of Lush's most iconic Christmas products.
It contains a Luxury Lush Pud which has the same fragrance as their Twilight bath bomb (which I love). It's made with lavender oil which is known to calm the mind and help with getting a good nights sleep.
It also includes the Golden Wonder Bath Bomb which smells of lime and sweet orange oils.
Lastly, it also has a Snowcake Soap bar which smells of marzipan, which is absolutely delicious and is always so tempting to eat!
All of these products are really moisturisng and cleansing for the skin.
Christmas Candy Box
This box is one of my absolute favourites!! All of the products in it are sweet and candy scented so it really does feel like you're using lollies in the bath and shower, if you or the person you're buying for isn't a fan of sweet scents then this isn't the gift box to buy.
It includes their Rockstar Soap which is really creamy and smells distinctly of vanilla, it's so lovely.
The Candy Mountain Bubble Bar is very fragrant with its matching vanilla scent and creates very fluffy bubbles in the bath.
Their Popcorn Lip Scrub is sweet and salty and does a really good job at exfoliating lips and helps hydrate lips with the coconut and jojoba oils that it has in it.
Snow Fairy Shower Gel is extra fruity and sparkly with, yet again, a sweet vanilla scent that I find really comforting. You can wash both your body and your hair with it and is very moisturising.
Last, but not least, their Snowman Bath Bomb! It is infused with cocoa butter to make sure that your skin stays soft and hydrated and the aroma is a 'blissful vanilla'.
I'm sensing a theme in this box...
