Fan Favorites: Most Raved About Lush Products
If you've ever been inside a Lush Cosmetics store you'll understand why so many people have fallen in love with this company. As you walk in you are immediately greeted by what seems like extra-friendly employees, who eagerly take you under their wing and introduce you to their world full of bath bombs, face masks, and all-natural henna hair dye.
As if their amiable employees and unique products didn't win you over already, everything in the store is made cruelty-free, with over 80% of the merchandise being vegan and the rest vegetarian. All the products are handmade and the ingredients are always fresh- on the side of any item you'll notice a "best by" label to ensure you'll finish up the product before it goes bad alongside a tiny cartoon image of the actual person that made it!
Although Lush might be known as "that place that sells those bath bombs I see all over Instagram", they have a wide range of amazing products that would suit any woman or man. Below are a few of their best-sellers that will have you searching for the nearest store or piling up your online shopping cart on lush.com.
Ocean Salt Face and Body Scrub, $21.95
Dubbed as a cult classic, this face and body scrub ingeniously pairs sea salt to exfoliate with coconut oil and avocado butter to soften and hydrate your skin. Start scrubbing and you'll notice a strong citrus scent, which comes from limes extracted in vodka (yes, you read that right) to brighten and tone skin for a glow like you've never had before.
93,000 Miles Shower Jelly, $8.95
Here's your new muscle relief prescription! Wet this invigorating eucalyptus and mint jelly and lather up overworked muscles to help sooth aches and pains. Whether you've just completed a triathlon or need a break after a tiring day at work, this vibrant colored jelly will use its energizing peppermint and warming cinnamon leaf oils to bounce you right back on your feet.
Cup O' Coffee Face and Body Mask, $11.95
Yes, this face mask actually has coffee in it! Lush experts suggest to use this strong, stimulating mask in the mornings to wake up your skin- and mind. The kaolin in it cleans out pores while the ground coffee buffs away dryness to reveal smooth and fresh skin underneath. Who knows, this might be your new favorite go-to coffee in the mornings!
Boom! Toothy Tabs, $10.95
You're probably thinking the same thing I was when I first came across this, what are those things and how do I use them?! These toothy tabs are an alternative to fluoride toothpaste, loaded with powdered charcoal and gunpowder tea (which helps prevent tooth decay). Take one tablet, grind it up between your teeth, then grab a wet toothbrush and brush like normal. 93% of customers say they would recommend this product to a friend, while 71 out of 75 reviews rave about how effective this is at whitening teeth. Don't worry, even more natural ingredients were added so that Boom! could have a yummy cola flavor.
Big Shampoo, $29.95
Is your hair feeling flat? Promised to deliver hair a "serious oomph", this shampoo is made with tons of sea salt to add serious volume. Packed full of minerals, it removes dead skin cells and de-greases hair without stripping it of oils. And you'll still get the soft, bouncy look you've been going for thanks to seaweed infusion extra virgin coconut oil.
Bubblegum Lip Scrub, $10.95
Craving something sweet? This sweet, candy flavored lip scrub does not disappoint. Fine castor sugar exfoliates lips and buffs out dead skin while the organic jojoba oil hydrates and plumps your lips. It comes in a compact container that you can throw in any purse and use anywhere. Customers' favorite part? Licking off the sugar when you're done!
