Neon used to emblazon signs across the world. There’s something about the blinging light of neon that makes you want to take notice. LUSH has a gift that is inspired by the bold look of neon, that makes you want to make it known just how much your love means to you (and of course, to show yourself some love). So if you’re looking for a gift that really says I LOVE YOU in screaming letters (or in this case, bold fragrance and shapes), get to a LUSH store, or order online and tell your special someone that your love is so much more unique than just a box of chocolates. The Neon Love gift box from LUSH is $39.95 (folowers will cost you plenty more than that, and won’t last nearly as long). Inside the bright blue striped with orange pink and yellow neon heart festooned paper (good for him or her) tied with an acid green ribbon is a bunch of fragrant, year-round favorites for bath and body, plus a Valentine’s only special — a LUSH Neon Love Soap.
This soap is only here for Valentines’ Day, but it is totally cute! IT was inspired by a public art project called 12 Months of Neon Love and made from sustainable rosewood oil harvested from a forest in the Amazon by locals.We’re excited to introduce a brand new soap made especially for Valentine’s Day. There is also passion fruit juice to cleanse and soya yogurt to nourish, plus citrusy bergamot, and spicy cinnamon leaf oil. Hiding inside the huge heart-shaped soap are little white hearts to ensure every slice looks just as beautiful as it smells. To me, it smells a bit tart, a bit like green tea. A bit like true love!
Also in the gift is:
The Bubble Gum Lip Scrub – I can’t get enough of this, especially this time of year when my lips are continually chapped from wind, cold and dry heat. A blend of exfoliating Fair Trade sugar and moisturizing jojoba oil whisks away flakes with a sweet taste and no complaints!
A small pot of Turkish Delight Shower Smoothie is seriously addictive. The buttery, softly rose-scented shower “cream/mousse” has scents of jasmine and Turkish rose, smoothing almond oil, moisturizing cocoa butter and neroli – the euphoric essential oil. Smooth on this softening smoothie in the shower, let it sit for a minute then rinse off for clean, touchably soft and fragrant skin. A pot of this suits all skin types, but it is particularly good for dry and sensitive bodies that need moisture. If your skin is rough and/or irritated, you’ll love this!
You get a cello-wrapped red tinted roll of red “Fun” and you can make any shape you want with it while you wash away your cares (along with dirt and body odor). The orange and mandarin oils smell great as you lather up your loofah or crumble some “fun” into your bath water for an extended orangey soak. You can play with it first, of course, And even better, 2.5% of sales go to charity: LUSH donates a percentage of sales to charities in Japan working to create safe outdoor places for children to have fun after the 2011 tsunami and subsequent nuclear disaster.
for some reason, our gift set didn’t come with the Dusk Til Dawn Massage bar, but instead ours came with another Neon Love Soap. We’re not complaining! We love the Neon Love soap. But your Neon Love set is not an editor’s sample, and yours will come with this cone-shaped massage bar that has the scent of Sicilian lemon and sweet wild orange oil plus moisturizing organic fair trade cocoa butter and we are told, also Ginkgo leaf and ginseng extracts stimulate your senses and keep you energized all night long.
This gift is certainly one to please a favorite friend, lover, or even your mom! But since it’s limited edition, you had better get one for yourself too, because it’s a great value, and it’s not going to be around long. LUSH products are made from fresh, organic fruit and vegetables, and essential oils and safe synthetics. There are even expiration dates on every product telling you who made it. They use only vegetarian ingredients, buy those ingredients only from companies that do not commission tests on animals, and seem to really care about their customers.Visit your favorite LUSH boutique, or http://www.lushusa.com/ and love to love LUSH for weeks to come!
