It seems that some of the latest and greatest skincare…
One of my favourite earth-conscious and ethically-run companies is Lush Cosmetics. So for Earth Day, I wanted to share a few of their products that I use on my face every day!
First, let’s chat about what makes Lush so special to me. I remember a really REALLY long time ago (we’re talking 80s/90s) walking by my first Lush store. The smell of the Lush products drew me in and their passion kept me coming back. I remember at the time there was a huge fight to ban animal testing, and Lush was a very large part of that. Mad respect point #1. And it begins…
Then I learned that Lush spends a lot of their efforts making sure the ingredients they use are ethically sourced and sustainable. Now I am by no means an eco-activist, but it gives me the warm fuzzies to know that what I’m using is supporting jobs in developing countries AND it isn’t F’ing up the planet. Mad respect point #2.
And now for their earth-friendly initiatives. Lush tries very hard to use as little packaging as they can. When they do use packaging it’s made from recycled materials and is recyclable when you’re done with it. Plus they don’t just encourage recycling, they reward it! Return those little black pots and get a free face mask in return! Mad respect point #3.
And that’s not even the end of it. Click any of the links above to see all the wonderful things they are doing for our people, our planet and our animals!
But I digress… on to the good stuff!
LUSH Angels on Bare Skin cleanser – Made with ground almonds and kaolin clay with a touch of lavender, rose and chamomile, this cleanser gently exfoliates my skin while soothing any redness or irritation. After my skin feels fresh and clean but not dry, just balanced.
You just add a small amount of water and rub together to form a paste, then rub all over your face! Easy-peasy. And the smell is divine!
Fun fact: Angels on Bare Skin was one of my first LUSH purchases when I was in school (I think high school?). I have been using it on and off for years!
LUSH Eau Roma Water toner – Now that your face is clean, spritz on some of this lavender and rose water blend to moisturize, soothe and balance your skin. Another winner for me because the smell is amazing and my skin really needs all the natural pampering it can get.
LUSH Celestial Moisturizer – The final step is a gentle moisturizer made for sensitive skin. This has fair trade cocoa butter, delicious vanilla water (it smells like fresh vanilla extract), almond milk and orchid extract. Frickin’ ORCHIDS!!! This keeps my skin hydrated all day and doesn’t ball up under foundation at all. It’s PERFECT.
AND IN CONCLUSION… LUSH is awesome. I really don’t have much else to say other than that. I’d love to know what your fave LUSH products are. And how you’re celebrating Earth Day! Let’s chat in the comments below, friends!
