There is SO much to like about Lush products. They are so natural and green, they even come with an expiration date on every product, along with the name of the person who crafted it. But the products are not just natural, they are unique. The company offers a dizzying array of gifts for the holidays in so many different scents and products, it takes LUSH four whole pages to list them all. There is something to suit everyone, from a signature Lush bath bomb at $4.95 to a 24-item boxed and wrapped gift that is $195.00. But there are plenty of other choices in-between. A nice touch is that the tag tells your recipient just what’s in the colorfully wrapped boxes tied with different, pretty ribbons.
The Advice Sisters have picked out four we think are representative of the LUSH products and gift-ables. Will these be your favorites, too, or do you like something else LUSH makes even more? Please feel free to share your thoughts.
Did you love to smush Play Doh into shapes when you were a kid? Do you kids like to smush Play Doh into shapes? FUN is new from LUSH and it’s not really a toy, it’s a SOAP, but you can make shapes with FUN, just like you can with a modeling clay. $6.95 brings you a 7 oz. cello wrapped log of mold-able bath soap that can be used for body, hair and bath. You can wash your hands with it, and just play around with it. At the LUSH store I visited today, artists had created all sorts of little animals, flowers, and more, in multi-colored FUN. At home, I pulled off a bit of the lemon/lime, citrus-y scented green log I was sent and smushed it around. FUN comes in five colors all with their own unique scent: YELLOW FUN: Vanilla absolute and gardenia extract yield a marzipan aroma; GREEN FUN: Uplifting and zingy fragrance with lemon and lime oils to awaken
the senses; BLUE FUN: Gentle and soothing lavender and chamomile oils are perfect for irritated skin; RED FUN: Fruity and revitalizing with orange and mandarin oils; and PINK FUN: A sweet treat with ice-cream scented tonka absolute and warming benzoin resinoid. But the serious part of this product is that a portion of the global sales (2.5%) of FUN will go into a newly created FunD and will be distributed as grants to projects providing recreational activities for children living in difficult surroundings. *LUSH has done previous work with Japanese charities after the 2011 earthquake, tsunami and nuclear disaster, and they have created FunD to help bring fun back to the children in Fukushima by identifying charities, community groups and parent initiatives that are providing fun-filled activities for these children.
