My Obsession With Lush – Fresh Handmade Cosmetics

Hooked from the moment I tried my first purchases from LUSH, I fell more in love with this cruelty – free cosmetic brand after experimenting with each product.

Reasons to love Lush are bountiful and personally mine include: the friendly and well – informed staff who always make your shopping experience enjoyable; LUSH stores don’t only look inviting with the unicorn arrayed colors from corner to corner, it also smells similar to a candy store, however you’ll be pleased to know that unlike candy, their products are beneficial for your skin; add to this list, the container program which encourages being environmentally friendly and 100% vegetarian, LUSH is ever winning and never disappoints.


Every time I shop for my favourite obsession refills, I can’t help but stir, overspend and leave with a bag full of goodies.

Are you a beginner to LUSH? Well, I’m your LUSH-obsessed-blogger here to fill you in on my top five products that you ought to get your hands on:

  1. Ocean Salt Face & Body Scrub:


Assists in perfecting your skin condition and results in ridiculously fresh and smooth skin. I personally love the beach, however I live in Johannesburg, South Africa – so this LUSH product is nostalgic for me.

  1. Sex Bomb (Rose petal soak):


This is heaven in a bathtub, this bath bomb actually has rose petals that unravel in your bath as you soak and resembles as silk on your skin.

  1. Emotional Brilliance Translucent Powder:


I have a yellow skin tone with a tinge of a pink undertone; I prefer yellow-based foundations and find my make – up looks brightened and oxidizes less, with a pink undertone in the form of powder. Lush powder is perfect, it’s not drying or flaky – the jojoba oil ingredient hydrates your skin and sets your make – up for a long lasting finish.

  1. Sleepy lotion:


This wonderful indulgent lotion has helped me sleep better and the ingredients assist in those anxious – filled days, perfect for relaxation.

  1. Massage bars


Some LUSH massage bars have added sparkle; perfect to add an extra glow to your skin, whilst others are great for relaxation and ultra moistened, soft skin.

There are of course a multitude of products that I need to try from LUSH – can you suggest some of your favorites?
