I think no matter how old I get, I will always be excited whenever new products from Lush get released. The sight of those black jars makes me want to hop into the shower or rediscover the joys of taking a bath. As Lush is our CBB Brand of the Month and I have yet to talk about Lush this month, even though I have been devouring their products like a madwoman, here are a couple of products I have been loving!
I have a stockpile of Lush Shower Jellies and have not met a jelly I did not like. It has been awhile since Lush has released some permanent additions to their Shower Jelly line so I leapt with joy when I saw 93,000 Miles* ($6.95 CDN) and Needles and Pine* ($8.95 CDN)! Made with eucalyptus, mint, cinnamon leaf and peppermint oil, 93,000 Miles is a spicy shower gel that both invigorates and soothes the senses and any sore muscles. This is such a great treat after a day at work. I just forget about the day and relax. Needles and Pine is very different, but equally relaxing with its woodsy forest scent created with pine nut oil, pine needles and cypress leaf infusion, and cedarwood oil. As a West Coast gal, I will always be won over by trees.
I am a massive fan of the original Rub Rub Rub Shower Scrub that comes in a jar so when I saw a BAR version of this jasmine, mimosa and orange piece of heaven I knew I had to try it to compare. The new Rub Rub Rub* ($9.95 CDN) is made with finely milled sea salt, cupuacu and illipe butters and actual sakura flowers which make this exfoliator look beautiful! I prefer to use this scrub on dry skin first to get rid of those extra tough areas like my elbows, knees and feet. Not only does the sea salt exfoliate, but the butters make this bar glide even on dry skin!
Before every manicure, I always scrub my hands with a moisturizing hand scrub so I tend to go through them quickly. What I look for in a good scrub is a good exfoliant that leaves my hands soft, but not greasy as I often start painting my nails right away. The Salted Coconut Hand Scrub* ($15.95 CDN) is that perfect balance. Coconut can be a scent that is overdone, but not with this hand scrub! Made with finely milled sea salt, lemon infusion, organic silken tofu, argan oil and cupuacu butter, this hand scrub left my hands soft and primed for a night of nail painting. My cuticles looked better and there was not greasy film left on my nail beds. It also smells AMAZING.
The Golden Handshake* ($4.95 CDN) absolutely fascinated me! I mean, is it a bath bomb, something to swirl around in the tub? Well, it’s actually a luxurious moisturizing hand treatment! Made with cupuacu and murumuru butters, swirl and dissolve this “handshake” in a bowl of warm water until the mixture becomes creamy. Now, get ready to soak your hands for 15 minutes and you will be left with delicate princess hands. I only wish this lasted for more treatments, but I love the fun way this treatment is made.
Have you tried any of these new Fall products from Lush? Which ones would you recommend?
