It’s not uncommon for your regular nine-to-fiver to need a little extra holiday cash. For this purpose, many turn to retail in November and December to fill up their weekends and evenings spreading holiday cheer, making some extra cash, and taking advantage of some great employee discounts.
With every retailer hiring temporary staff for holidays, it's really a job-seekers market when picking where to spend those long hours on the sales floor. LUSH virtually doubles its retail and manufacturing employees between Halloween and New Years, but we don’t have to hire completely from scratch. We’ve been hearing about some amazing Temporary Holiday Staff in our shops that return year after year to spread the LUSH love at holiday time, so we called around to find out why they choose to come back to work for LUSH every Christmas season!
Michael came back for his second Holiday with LUSH at our Christiana store in Delaware. When asked him what attracted him to working for LUSH he said “I love the products, as a college student studying plants, learning the ingredients and what they are good for has been great.”
Michael isn’t the only staff member who finds working for LUSH a good supplement to their education, many students of environmental studies, cosmetology, massage and aromatherapy, find that and education in LUSH products helps bring their classroom learning to life. Working retail during the holidays is very accommodating to a college schedule, just as you are finishing up exams and your last cla...
And so this is Christmas. Another year is over. We hope you had fun.
When we look back and reflect on the last 365 days and all that we've experienced - we know that we couldn't have done any of it without you. You've welcomed us into your communities as we opened new shops; you've celebrated our new product inventions (and have been as excited as we were); and you've supported us as we continued our fight against animal testing, protested pipelines, and stood up for animals in the fur industry. You've also helped us expand our reach with Charity Pot, and we were lucky to have some of you join us on a Charity Pot trip too.
This isn't just about soap either. We love all of the ways you connect with us - whether you're stopping by your local shop, chatting on the Forum, or posting pictures, sharing stories, and keeping us entertained on Facebook and Twitter.
We don't take any of this for granted. We know we aren't the only cosmetics shop around and we're very grateful that you choose to share your bath and shower with us. But most importantly, that you're truly a part of the LUSH family.
From all of us at LUSH, we wish you and yours the happiest of holidays.
At some point all of the stress and hectic running around of the season catches up with you. For some, that means spending the holidays clutching the Kleenex box. For others it means unplanned decorations on their faces and bodies, instead of decking the halls. It happens.
This is what we keep in our emergency kit for such skin care emergencies:
Grease Lightning: Super effective thyme, tea tree and rosemary infusion shrink mini volcanoes, zap spots, and treat your clogged pores and inflammation. Consider it your skin superhero.
Tea Tree Water: Don't use a toner with skin irritating alcohol. Antiseptic tea tree oil gently clears out blemish causing bacteria, while grapefruit and juniper water balance oil production. Spritz away.
Mask of Magnaminty: Make dirt a distant memory with our deep cleansing face and back mask. China clay and fresh peppermint dig way down into your pores, aduki beans exfoliate flaky skin, while honey calms and soothes. Amazing.
Irritations aren't only the realm of your face, (and we're not referring to your mother-in-law either). Your poor skin can have troubles all over.
Dream Wash: Sensitive, sore skin will be awash with relief with our gentle, whipped creation made with soothing aloe vera, lavender, rose, tea tree, and calamine. No lather, just hop...
Warm your heart and your computer screen with our roaring, crackling fire. In the spirit of the season we created a LUSH version of the holiday classic. What makes it so LUSH? Yule just have to watch it to find out...
