So I thought I would shake things up a bit and do a little review and overall look at Lush as a brand. Lush have a very interesting brand everything is handmade, locally ethical sourced, fresh and organic, Vegan and Vegetation approved and NO animal testing. That is a lot for a brand to up hold and maintain. It had originally started a Cosmetics to Go which was mail order business and had supplied the Body Shop with their shampoo they eventually failed and started again as Lush in the South of England and steadily grew to the global brand that it is now. They try to reduce their impact on the environment through their packaging and ingredients and on reduce their impact on the local people who they source their ingredients from. This brand is all about sourcing the best quality ingredients, using essential oil and not over processing ingredients and using preserving techniques on ingredients. They are also very actively campaigning not only on animal testing but on a range of different causes. I think they have a great slogan that is the right to make mistakes and start again which is excellent mindset to have for a brand and company. There are now over 700 shops in 46 countries around the world. . doing something right.
That was a little background for those of you who haven’t heard of Lush and what they stand for. Now I will review some of the products which I have bought. I have bought quite a few Lush products in the last couple of months so I will only choose a few.
Rehab Shampoo and American Cream Conditioner – I have really terrible hair and since I’ve been using this, it has some how tamed if only a little. People have complimented me on my hair a lot too since using this as this has allowed it to grow. At first your hair will have a very drying feeling to it but after a while it starts to get use to it.
Stepping Stone Foot Scrub and Volcano Foot Mask – I get tired feet all the time and have my own foot massagers so I use the foot scrub which has a nice scent which creates a great aroma. The foot mask is very messes and is hard to get all of it off but leaves your feet feeling smooth and soft. Also brings up all the dead skin on your feet too.
Flying Fox Shower Gel and Happy Hippy Shower Gel – I love their shower gels these two are very different shower gels but they have such lovely smells to them. Happy Hippy is a thicker consistence then the Flying Fox one making lather up more in the shower. They are both just great and love the cheeky instructions on the bottle too.
Jasmin & Henna Fluff-Eaze – I use this once a month on my hair and it is great because it leaves my hair feeling soft and silky. I really should start using this once a fortnight to keep that feeling longer in my hair.
