Lush Cosmetics… where do I begin? Delicious smelling and fun, these all natural (most are vegan and ALL are organic!) little gems are an amazing way to relax at the end of the day. They have an array of products from Lip Balms, Face Masks, All-Natural Hair Dyes, Solid Lotion Bars, and Perfume among many other amazing products. I am a huge fan of their Bubble Bars which are basically solid bubble bath bars. You can cut them up (I wouldn’t recommend cutting them down more than once in half, also and be sure that your knife and hands are dry or the bar will melt) and get more than one bath from each bar, depending upon how concentrated you want your experience to be. They melt easily and my favorite, “Sunnyside“, smells like fresh tangerines and turns your bath water into melted gold (literally, it’s full of extremely fine glitter!) Now the only drawback is the cleanup. You do have to spend a little extra time, and I do mean only a little, getting this stuff up especially if you’ve purchased a Bubble Bar or Bath Bomb with actual flowers mixed in. But if you’re diligent with your cleaning products and give it a spray right after you’ve finished your bath you shouldn’t experience any ringing around the tub-y (har har).

The scrubs offered by Lush often tend to run on the expensive side… I’m talking upwards of $5 for a one-time use sugar scrub bomb or $9 for a tiny lipgloss sized pot. HOLY CRAP?! I’ll make my own. I have a recipe for a fast, easy, and much cheaper sugar scrub I’ll be posting within the next few days. This is probably the only thing I wouldn’t recommend buying because you can easily make your own and it’s completely custom!

There are a few Lush locations in SoHo New York and the only Long Island location is in Valley Stream. I’m unsure of this being a full retail location or a smaller version of such, but I know for a fact the SoHo location is the real deal. So if you’re ever in the city, or live near Valley Stream I would definitely recommend checking them out.

With my birthday coming up at the beginning of the month (September 10th, don’t forget it!) I really, really want a Fresh Farmacy cleanser bar because my skin has been awful and Chocolate Whipstick because hello, chocolate?! But if you’re feeling kind… and there’s always gift cards! Enough about me, have fun browsing around and experiencing some sincerely awesome product from a sincerely awesome corporation.

Get creative, get fun, get Lush!
