LUSH Fathers Day 2016: Smuggler’s Soul Facial Scrub, Multi-Purpose Cream, Shampoo Bar review

Maybe it’s just me, but dads are really hard to shop for. LUSH has made it a bit easier this year with a fairly big Father’s Day collection. And it’s a mix of adorable designs and lovely scents.

Lush Fathers Day

I mean, come on, look at this Superdad! gift box. For my dad though, I opted for something a bit more subtle and practical.

LUSH Fathers Day 2016 Smugglers Soul

The new Smuggler’s Soul collection is infused with one of my favourite scents: Sandalwood.

The limited edition Smuggler’s Soul Facial Scrub is a very fine grain physical exfoliant that uses bamboo granules. The base is a blend of argan oil, olive oil and shea butter.

And of course, this smells really smoky and comforting. This reminds me of some of the higher-end microdermabrasion scrubs I have used before (think derma-e or Dr. Brandt).

The Smuggler’s Soul Multi-Purpose Cream… I love this one. It mixes sandalwood with lemon balm, vertivert and lemongrass so it’s a smoky and tangy scent. The blend reminds me a bit of Karma cream because of its tangy vs. smoky nature.

The cream itself is an argan oil, jojoba oil and almond oil base. It’s very hydrating without being too thick or greasy.

PURPLE!!! Smuggler’s Soul Shampoo Bar is the prettiest one yet. But your dad probably won’t care that it’s purple, but he’ll love the the fresh sandalwood, watercress, cucumber and lemongrass scent.

The base is cocoa butter like most other shampoo bars, and it lathers up really, really nicely.

I am really diggin’ on this Father’s Day collection. I think LUSH has hit it out of the park once again.

WHAT ARE YOU GETTING DAD THIS YEAR?
I’ll actually be in Chicago with Zoe from Writing Whimsy on Father’s Day this year. Sorry, dad!
