In perusing Lush’s catalog, I found them to have a small cadre of natural offerings, so I decided to give ‘em a whirl.
Lush makes some really fun facial cleansers, presented in a doughy kind of a format. Dark Angels is a conundrum; leaves a wicked black ring around the tub and is hard as h-e-double hockey sticks to get off, but methinks it’s worth it. Use this at the basin instead of in the bath, and remove it with a washcloth, and you’ll be good to go. This feels and smells so good. Polishes skin with charcoal, glides around with avocado oil, and scented with delicious rosewood essential oil.
Aqua Marina is pink with calamine and green with seaweed. Actually really soothed my skin! My face looked really calm and smooth, and it has a lurvely squidgy texture. The Aqua Marina~ not my face!!!:)
Angels On Bare Skin is a good old good one. Just as nice as it ever was when I tried it more than a decade ago, this paste of almonds and white clay, scented with rose and lavender lets you scrub to your heart’s content without irritating, ever.
Lush’s solid facial moisturizer, Full Of Grace Serum, is a lot lighter and user friendly than I expected. Packed with butters and oils. Nice chamomile scent. Nicely soothing to the skin.
T Tree Toner Tab is effervescent fun and smells really nice, which surprised me for a tea tree product. You pop the tablet into a pot of boiled water, and then steam your face over it. Very beneficial for the skin.
Wiccy Magic Muscles is so much fun! A solid massage bar with knobbly little adzuki beans that massage out tension and massage in the soporific essential oils of cinnamon and peppermint. Yay! Oddly warming and cooling at once~ methinks this would be great in the heat of Summer.
I’ll be on the lookout for more all natch stuff from Lush~ as far as fun in the tub goes, they’re tops!
