Loranda Vazquez

Loranda's LUSH story begins fresh out of university. Knowing she wanted to write for a living, but not knowing where to start, she turned to her friends and family for words of wisdom. Loranda's father-in-law gave her the following advice: "Find a company that you love, and find out how to do what you love for that company". She applied at one place - LUSH.
Loranda began as a sales associate and voiced her dream of one day becoming a copywriter. In the shop, she learned about the brand, products and ingredients and moved into managing. Next she traveled around North America setting up new stores and training staff on LUSH merchandising with the Design Team. She practiced her LUSH writing every day! Finally a position opened up for copywriter - her dream job! Since the spring of 2009, Loranda's been writing for the LUSH Times, the website and everything in between.

Danger! Cosmetics to Go

Posted In: LUSH Life >> Our History

Before there was LUSH, there was Cosmetics To Go, a mail-order cosmetics company in Poole, England that shone as bright as a shooting star for six years. This beautiful coffee-table book illustrates the rise and fall of this revolutionary cosmetics company. Singer and songwriter Mira Manga who works for LUSH in England spent nearly two years exploring, interviewing, researching and writing this book, complete with original imagery from the brightly colored, lovingly designed Cosmetics To Go catalogs.

As of November 12th, Danger! Cosmetics to Go is available for purchase in-store and online here. There are limited quantities available so don’t miss out on the exciting opportunity to read the story of the company that came before LUSH; the inventions and the ethics that are at the core of our business all started here. Check out some of the pages inside and listen to writer Mira talk a bit about the book in this video below.
