St. Patrick's Day is this Sunday, and that means it's time to celebrate all things Irish and green.
There are plenty of ways to get into the Irish spirit, whether it's listening to Celtic music (or maybe some Van Morrison or The Pogues), learning to Riverdance (or some semblance of a jig), cooking up potatoes, cabbage and stew and of course, dressing in green. But for us LUSHies, it's no surprise that our favorite way to celebrate is in the tub. Shamrocks may bring good luck, but we've got just the right treats to bring good bathing fortunes.
A warm, fragrant bath makes us happier than a leprechaun who's found a pot of gold. So we'll be sure to start the day off right and have a beautiful green bath to launch us into the day. With fragrant lemongrass to wake up your mind and fresh avocado to soften skin, Avobath Bath Bomb is a perfect choice for morning bathing in festive waters. Pair it with a shimmering Sunnyside bubble bar and your bath will glitter with gold.
If you prefer soaking in mountains of fluffy bubbles, crumble up a Green Bubbleroon under running water and wake up to the scent of citrusy lime and orange oils. Floral fragrance lovers will certainly find happiness at the end of the Dorothy bubble bar rainbow, even if there isn't a pot of gold!
Once you've bathed and found your greenest outfit, it's time to bring out your eyes! ...
Have you seen the new Q&A feature on our website? It enables customers to ask questions about each product directly on the product pages, and LUSH staff or other customers can answer them (if you're looking for it, scroll down to Customer Reviews on any product page and click on "Questions and Answers"). Here we've put together some of the most frequently asked questions regarding our Body Lotions and Body Butters, so you can find them all in one place!
Q: "What do you recommend for dry, sensitive skin?
A: Hands down, we recommend Dream Cream. A soothing oat milk base plus lavender, chamomile, tea tree and rose (our "dream team" of essential oils) alleviates redness and calms irritated skin. We've received hundreds of reviews and emails from customers thanking us for this one!
Q: "Are there certain products you would suggest for people suffering from eczema?"
A: We'd certainly recommend Dream Cream again, which has had great reviews from people suffering from eczema, as you'll see in the reviews section on its product page. We'd also recommend Ultrabalm, which consist simply of jojoba oil, rose wax and candelila wax to soften and soothe dry, chapped skin.
Q: "Could you recommend products that are lightly...
Volume II is the second round of perfumes being launched by our Gorilla Perfumers, the father and son team Mark and Simon Constantine. Inspired by ancient lore of the British countryside, tales of seduction, protective plants and beat poets, these perfumes are nothing like you've experienced before.
The Sun is an orange, tangerine and sandalwood oil blend, inspired by Mark's vision of a big orange sun on a lollipop stick. In the dead of winter, he reminisced about a road trip taken with friends in the middle of summer, driving down the New Jersey Turnpike to Cape May. Listening to Simon and Garfunkel croon "America", he flung open the doors to his fragrance cupboard and began recreating the happiness and contentedness of that warm, happy day.
The Voice of Reason is inspired by the generation of beat poets. It smells as is Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan and Jack Kerouac just walked past you and through a cellar door into a secret club. They are gone, and all you have is the faint scent of espresso, French cigarettes and whiskey swirling around you. Sandalwood and buddhawood soak into your skin, senses and soul.
Rose beats at the heart of the matter. Sikkim Girls is a scent of silent seduction. It is inspired by a Darjeeling café owner's tale of two women, the Sikkim Girls, who seduced his son-in-law with the subtle, sexual sway of their bodies. A blend of frangipani, jasmine...
Studies show that when we do something kind for another person, our own happiness increases. One act of kindness can create a virtuous cycle that brings regular acts of love into your relationship. We're not just talking about THE act of love (although that may be the end result), we're talking about a soft, sensuous massage.
Start out with a Tender is the Night massage bar. This luxurious, heart-shaped bar is intended for one use (or two, if your partner is feeling generous). Crush the light, velvety bar between your hands and inhale the seductive scent of jasmine, ylang ylang and vanilla. The shea butter and almond oil melt in your hands, and onto the back and body of your loved one.
Now, the fun part.
Start at the top, shoulders and arms, and work your way down the back as you melt the butters onto the skin, hands gliding smoothly. Set the unused portion of the bar aside for them to use on you later, or go all the way and rub the entire bar all over their body from head to toe. Work your hands into the muscles, rubbing out any kinks or knots you find. Try to keep your hands on their body the entire time to keep your partner relaxed.
Press your fingers up and widen them across the base of the scalp, rub around their ears, gently pull the earlobes. Massage the jaw, remind them to breathe deeply and release the tension in their face and body. Rub down the ne...
One of the amazing things about our preservative-free, and all natural LUSH Les Cacas henna hair colors is that they look different on everyone. We can’t say exactly how Les Cacas will turn out on your hair because they work more like a gloss or varnish than a traditional dye, so it depends a lot on the colour of your hair now. That’s why we recommend you doing a strand test before you do your whole head.
Caca Noir: If you've got darker brown to black hair, you can expect a dark, blue-black indigo tint. We don't recommend Noir for light hair colors as it has a lot of indigo, which is naturally a bluish green shade.
Caca Brun: Mousey brown, medium and dark brunettes can expect a glossy, unified rich coffee brown color with Caca Brun. Lighter blonde and grey hair will turn several shades darker, turning brown with a green cast. Adding another coat of the same color will darken and develop it further.
Caca Marron: If you hair is very dark in color, it will become glossy, shiny ...
