Show Us Your LUSH Stash!

Q: Why don’t you tell us a little bit about yourself?

A: Hey there! I’m Courtney and I handle the Canadian media relations for LUSH North America. I’m originally from Cleveland, Ohio but now I live in New York City. I’m a Gemini and I love long walks on the beach...oh wait, it’s not that kind of profile?

Q: Now that we know who you are, let’s get down to business! What’s that in your shower?

A: Today we’re taking a peek into my shower! I’m a big fan of luxurious showers, but often don’t have the time to spoil myself. You’ll see I have quite a few products in here and I decide what to use based on my mood (and how much time I have to get ready!).

Q: Why are you using these products in particular? What do you like about them?

A: Fragrance is the number one driver for choosing my shower products. I love all of LUSH’s fragrances but I’m drawn to fruity citruses and floral scents. For my hair care, my hair is (not naturally) blonde so I need products to help keep my color vibrant and strands seriously moisturized.

Q: What does your daily beauty routine entail?

A: In the morning I use 9 to 5 on my face with my Clarisonic facial brush and wash up the rest with Happy Hippy shower gel and Ocean Salt. The bright citrusy scents really get me going! Sometimes I’ll treat myself to a little Snow Showers shower jelly. I make my nighttime showers as relaxing as possible, so I use Turkish Delight followed by Ro’s Argan Body Conditioner. After this rose shower I’m relaxed and ready for a good night’s sleep!

Q: Are there products you’re using because it’s winter? Does your beauty routine vary from season to season?

A: I use most of these products year-round, but my routine with each product changes during different seasons. For example, in the summer I’ll use Ro’s Argan alone as it makes a lovely lightweight moisturizer, but in the winter I layer it with Turkish Delight for the ultimate moisturizing shower.

Q: Do you have a star product—something that your (skin, hair, etc.) wouldn’t be the same without?

A: Daddy-O! I’ve been using Daddy-O for a long time and my blonde just isn’t blonde without it. Every time I wash my hair it looks like I just had it colored. The fragrance of beautiful violet and fresh lemons boosts my mood, so not only am I’m looking good, I’m feeling great!

Q: Anything we’d be surprised to learn about your beauty routine?

A: Anyone who knows me knows I don’t wash my hair very much, one or two times a week max. I know it sounds odd but my hair has never been healthier! I also try to cut out blow drying and heat styling unless absolutely necessary. It has really transformed my hair over the past few years.

Q: What’s the one product you can't live without?

A: I can’t live without my Buffy body butter! It does a little bit of everything, exfoliates, moisturizes and keeps my backside in check. If I’m stuck on a desert island surely there will be a bathing suit involved…
