Chase away the winter chills with this recipe for Vegan Gingerbread Cookies loaded with sugar, spice, and everything nice.
These treats are so delicious even the most discerning Santa will never know that they're dairy and egg-free. If your cravings for spicy treats are on high, after you empty the cookie jar of course, is the bath tub for some warming confections to really heat up your holidays.
For warming soaks that stop the shivers dead in their tracks use our crackling Cinders Bath Bomb or our slightly tipsy Father Christmas (he's had a few nips of brandy). If you're more the bubbly type crumble Santa's Sack or Rocket Reusable Bubble Bar in to your tub for voluptuous spicy bubbles. You nostalgic types needn’t worry either, we brought back your beloved Gingerbread House Bubble Bar to our online-only Retro shop too. With this many warming treats think of the money you'll save on your winter heating bills!
But first, let's fill that cookie jar with... Vegan Gingerbread Cookies
- 1/2 cup coconut oil, room temperature (solid)
- 1/2 cup fancy molasses
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1 tsp pure vanilla extract<...
Oy vey! The holidays are here and eight crazy nights of celebration are just around the corner. We don't want to sound like your overbearing mother, but have you made your list and checked it twice? You may have bought enough food to feed a small army, but what about a brilliant new gift to keep your loved ones squeaky clean and schmutz free? With Hanukkah in mind, our merry band of LUSH designers burned the midnight oil to create our new Happy Hanukkah gift. This trio of treats for bath and shower does just the trick when you want to spread festive cheer.
This year our gift designers created a North American exclusive gift that honors the tradition of Hanukkah with modern elements. They began by selecting three of our best and brightest for bath and shower including Avobath Bath Bomb, The Olive Branch shower gel and Ice Blue soap. As the story of Hanukkah goes, a small amount of olive oil was used to light the Holy Temple’s menorah and it miraculously stayed lit for eight nights! With this in mind we chose Avobath and The Olive Branch because they're both made with olive oil, which is also a great way to hydrate dry winter skin. Our indulgent Avobath Bath Bomb also features fresh avocado for a healthy helping of moisture when skin needs it most. The Olive Branch shower gel's zippy mandarin orange scent is great for perking you up after an evening of heavy eating....
Turn the lights down low, put on some music and grab a punch bowl! We searched far and wide to bring you the perfect recipe for a seasonal fruity punch that's sure to keep your spirits bright.
Ponche Navideño is the traditional Mexican punch that inspired our new tequila-spiked, festive shower gel Ponche. With this orangey, boozy gel you can get up to some good clean fun whenever you please. If you can’t get enough of the festive libations wash dirty hands (and bodies) with our naughty and nice gin-loaded Mr. Punch soap. You can also check out the Retro section of our website for some familiar online-only treats including our mulled wine shower gel Glogg. These boozy bathtime cocktails are the most fun you'll have without getting a hangover.
Then again, it is the season of celebration so grab that punch bowl and whip up... Ponche Navideño

On a balmy Fall afternoon, the LUSH Times team hit Robson Street in Vancouver and met Stephanie, a LUSH virgin. We sat her down at our LUSH Robson store and handed her over to skincare guru Nicola to take our personalized skin care consultation for a test drive.
Every skincare consultation at LUSH begins with a Q&A session to help us find the products most compatible with your skin. We believe that your skin is as unique as your fingerprint, so your skincare routine should be as well. Don’t be shy! Our friendly staff members are here to help you find the routine that works best for you. You can expect questions like: what’s your current skin care routine, are you having any issues or concerns, how does your skin feel now, and how do you want your skin to feel after cleansing and moisturizing? Once you fill us in we can get to work suggesting products or an entire routine that will suit your needs and lifestyle.
We sat our willing subject down for a short question session with Nicola, who determined that products with gentle formulations would work best to keep Stephanie’s normal skin looking gorgeous. Then it was on to the best part, trying out the routine. At LUSH, we believe that you should be able to take products for a test drive before you buy, so we offer the option of a complimentary mini facial in store. For Stephanie, Nicola began with Ultrabland, a LUSH cult classic cleanser, to gently remove makeup and dirt while keeping skin soft and supple. Next, Nicola applied Full of Grace, a solid facial serum with Portobello mushrooms, to add a layer of nourishing anti-oxidants to her skin. Over top of the serum Nicola added Read More...

When your hair is experiencing a drought it's time to provide some much needed hydration.

Begin with a shampoo that's designed to gently cleanse while leaving behind moisturized tresses. Godiva 2 in 1 Solid Shampoo Bar does just the trick with a mixture of Shea and cocoa butters to rehydrate and soften dry hair.
