On a balmy fall afternoon, Georgina, lovely LUSH customer, had a skincare consultation with LUSH Robson sales associate Anton. She shared her woes over her oily-yet-dry complexion, and he sent her home with two different moisturizer samples to try: Celestial and Cosmetic Lad. Georgina diligently kept a skincare diary for two weeks while she tried both moisturizers. And what did she think? Read on, friends!
"On day 1, my skin was feeling a lovely combination of dry around my cheeks and eyes, and a little bit greasy on my forehead and chin. I gave my face a gentle little scrub with a pinch of Angels on Bare Skin, rinsed off with cool water, followed by a spritz (or seven) of Eau Roma Water (wiped off), before finally applying a dose of Celestial moisturizer to my face.
It didn't take me long to realize that I needed to apply only a small amount for full face coverage. Once I had applied it all over my face and it had started to absorb into my skin, it felt as if I were wearing a bit of a heavy, greasy mask. Is that really the best way I can describe it? Yes, I'm afraid so. But I don't mean ‘greasy’ or ‘heavy’ in a bad way (apparently I need to expand my vocabulary), in fact it was actually rather comforting, and I certainly didn't look as if I had a greasy face. I paid attention to this “heaviness” and after roughly 5 minutes, it was gone. My initial feelings are good, the moisturizer has a nice weight and texture to it, plus I enjoy its scent!

People often ask us where we find the inspiration to invent new products. Music, movies, and books are a source. Love, family, trials and tribulations. Food is almost always involved! But the truth is, you inspire us. Your unflagging commitment to telling us how you feel about our products is what keeps our creative juices flowing.
We recently posed a question to our a Facebook fans: How would you describe your favorite Gorilla Perfume? Brittney Poulson's description of Breath of God painted a beautiful picture for us, so we did the same in return.
"Breath of God is late fall nights sitting at a campfire. It's that warm feeling you get when your body is frozen but your insides are warm from a fresh cup of hot cocoa. Breath of God is that inhale of frost just before the peaks of morning, the dew on the tips of the grass. It's the clouds of breath you exhale as you gaze at the last lingering stars. It's home. It's feeling completely content with the world when the air is ice. It's s feeling at ease when the first few flakes of snow fall. It's crisp air flirting with your tired eyes. It gives your whole body a chill to the core, through the veins, and leaves you ever so satisfied, invigorated, and alive."
Charitable Givings at LUSH goes beyond Charity Pot and donations. We also love to host parties in our shops with our Charity Pot partners to increase their visibility, and our employees volunteer year round across North America, (and even around the world).
Last Fall we held a contest in our shops asking our customers to help us find more worthy causes to support. Not only did we get some amazing suggestions, but we also had the pleasure of hosting 10 winners on our first-ever Customer Volunteer event in Gold Butte, Nevada with one of our Charity Pot partners, Friends of Nevada Wilderness. It was hot, hard work but a rewarding experience that no one will forget.
