Brand Focus - Lush

I'm pretty sure everyone has been to Lush, but I love it so much that I couldn't not mention it.

I think Lush is pretty special because all of their products are hand made, they're ethical buyers and they only use either recycled, recyclable, reusable or compostable materials. Lush is also 100% vegetarian (and I would say about 90% vegan - they do use honey and some milk in a few products), but it's really easy to tell if products are vegan, because they put a 'V' on the description sign (as you can see in the picture below).

Bath Bombs

I take a bath at least every other night (as the boy in About A Boy says, If I don't have a good soak at night, I'm useless in the morning), and about once a week I'll be fancy and use a bath bomb. Bath Bombs are probably what Lush is most known for, and they have about 20 different kinds (maybe more?). Drop one in your bath and watch your bath turn a different colours! My favourite bath bomb of all time is called Twilight (pictured below), and they describe it as a 'terrifically soothing and relaxing lavender bath' and that it will 'send you off to dream land'. The lavender is supposed to help make you sleepy, and it smells so relaxing and perfect.

Bath Melts

My other favourite thing from lush are their bath melts. They're similar to bath bombs in that you put them in the bath with you, but instead of turning your bath a bunch of different colours, they are insanely moisturizing. I love using bath melts in the winter when your skin just needs a little boost of moisture! I've been obsessed with the You've Been Mangoed one recently, and it smells good enough to eat!

Charity Pot

The Charity Pot lotion is really cool -  not only is it a super moisturizing lotion, Lush also donates 100% of the cost to various charities. Since it's launch in 2007, Lush has donated over $10,000,000 to over 85 different grassroots charities - that's insane. So not only does your skin feel great, you can feel great about buying it! It's literally a direct donation to a cause. So many companies will donate a portion of the proceeds to charities, but I don't think I've ever seen one donate ALL of the proceeds. Way to go, Lush!
