Denise Slacke

Denise began working for LUSH in June 2011 when she moved to New York to escape the unbearably cold summer months in Ireland. What started out as a three month fling quickly grew into something much bigger and after a brief return to the Emerald Isle she came running back to her LUSH home in NYC! She currently holds the title of Senior Keyholder with her Union Square family while proudly interning at the LUSH Press Office two days a week where she assists five beautiful ladies. In her spare time she loves exploring New York and skyping her family and puppy across the ocean.

Show Us Your LUSH Stash

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

Hello! My name is Denise and I work as a Brand Ambassador and Public Relations Intern for LUSH in New York City! I moved here from Ireland over a year ago and have made LUSH my home ever since.

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

This is a snap shot of what I like to use in the bath! I love everything bath related from LUSH. I always like to have a concoction of my favorite LUSH Bath Bombs, bubble bars and melts stored in my bathroom, waiting and ready to use at the end of a long, cold day! My all-time favorite Bath Bomb is Twilight. I could bathe in it every day. I love coming up with my own bath cocktails too. Lately I’ve been using Sex Bomb with French Kiss bubble bar and Dreamtime. Just beautiful!

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

Who can resist hopping into a nice warm bath at the end of a long day? I love using my LUSH Bath Bombs. They are full of so many beautiful essential oils and are the perfect way to relax. They make my bathroom smell amazing, add a dash of color and bring such joy to my day. I recently had a customer tell me that she has a LUSH bath every Monday night because it now makes her look forward to the week ahead on Sunday. Clever and inspiring!

What does your daily beauty routine entail?

In the morning, I love using Ocean Salt! It wakes me up and gives my face a fresh look, like I’m ready to take on the day. At night, I always use Angels on Bare Skin facial cleanser along with Breath of Fresh Air toner to give my face a good clean before bed. I usually finish up with Vanishing Cream. The lavender soothes and balances my skin and I can’t resist the smell.

Does your beauty routine vary from season to season?

Definitely. My skin gets very dry in the winter. Right now I’m stocking up on a lot of our bath melts, especially Ceridwen’s Cauldron. The oat milk really hydrates my skin and makes it feel soft again. I also love bathing in Avobath and showering with Porridge soap in the winter. As it moves into summer, I usually switch to lighter products like Celestial facial moisturizer and Herbalism to soak up excess oil.

Do you have a star product—something that your wouldn’t be the same without?

Daddy-O shampoo. My hair would never be the same without it. I use it every single day. All that lemon really brings out the shine in my hair, so much so that people constantly ask me what I use!

Do you have any secret beauty tips or tricks?

I love using a Fresh Face Mask at least once a week and I alternate between them all the time. They’re definitely the answer to a quick fix whether your skin is dry, oily, breaking out, irritated or in need of a lift! Put one on for ten minutes and instantly feel refreshed and ready to take on the world.

Is there anything we’d be surprised to learn about your beauty routine?

I’m obsessed with hair treatments. They are a major part of my beauty routine! I use Jasmine and Henna Fluff-Eaze at least twice a week. It makes my hair look and smell so good.

Do you have a beauty/grooming confession you would be willing to share?

I’m so gullible when it comes to random spot treatment tips I find on the internet. I’ve done everything! I’ve even put toothpaste and potatoes on my breakouts. None of it works, but I can’t help it, I have to try them all! My advice? Stick to Grease Lightning! Works every time.

What’s your desert island, can't-live-without product?

Dream Cream! It will always be my favorite LUSH product. I use it all year round and have turned family and friends on to it too. It’s perfect in the winter to stave off dry skin and even better in the summer at repairing my sunburnt Irish skin! Dream Cream is my savior.
