Spring: nature’s invitation to give it a go, and start fresh in a new season. Warmer days coax our sandals from their hideouts, and there's a pull to make use of the longer days. It’s also a season associated with cleaning and clearing out clutter.
It certainly feels great to pare down to basics. We're all for the thrill of finding a new fantastic fit for your needs. We just don’t see value in tossing out old reliable staples—if something is continuing to perform, it’s worth keeping around season through season. A quick evaluation of your present needs aids the clutter-clearing process, while maintaining a focus on what is working for you.
Consider the following before your next toiletries purge:
What’s going on outside? How does spring weather impact your skin?
• Spring weather is notoriously mercurial, causing melee for skin sensitive to the elements. Fluctuation in temperature can send mixed signals to sebum-producing glands in the skin. Humidity, pollen and seasonal irritants outside make an impact too. Lavender-laden products like Dream Cream offer relief to skin looking for balance and itching or mild irritation.
• Warmer weather means more skin exposed under looser, lighter clothes (that, and less clothing overall). If winter has left you with blackheads and breakouts on areas other than the face, Coal Face Facial Soap and Read More...
Few LUSH products are more posted, pinned, tweeted or instagrammed (is that a word now?) than our Fresh Face Masks.
Our customers love to smother their faces in our masks of fresh fruits, vegetables, herb infusions and essential oils, make silly faces, and then post it for everyone to see! You really are a weird bunch. But we love you anyway.

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! The next day, my complexion appeared pretty even.
After a week of using Celestial, my face feels soft to touch. No cr...
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...
"Charity Pot has to be one of the deepest and most penetrating moisturizers I have ever used. It not only softens my skin but also helps alleviate the eczema spots that appear on my skin from time to time. It's my go-to cream for a quick hand moisturizer especially during the winter months. I love the rich, soothing and calming scent of geranium and cocoa butter. And the best part is Charity Pot proceeds support many grass root charities. Great idea and a great product!" - francescaisfine, Pittsburgh, PA
