Back to School with LUSH Handmade Cosmetics

 Oh honey-have you LUSH'd lately?

I've got a short list of goodies that can get you back to school and back to university in tip top sweet smelling shape! LUSH creates hand made cosmetics and body products that are sustainably sourced.

My favorite thing about this company is their commitment to making planet friendly, good for your products!

No parabens or harsh preservatives or chemicals in these products. What does that mean? Safe grey water for you to reuse on your garden, lawn or plants! Woot!

Your LUSH Back to School list of must have body products:

1. Whoosh shower jelly- why? Because it's got energizing aromatherapy scent! Wake up with Whoosh!

2. Herbalism facial cleanser-why? Because it's got a wee bit of grit for exfoliation as well as the ability to help eliminate spots, balance excess oil and calm troubled skin.

3. Ultrablast toothy tabs-why? Because this box of toothpaste tabs that clean teeth and freshens breath is recycled, recyclable, portable, easy to use and fun and funky!

4. Sexy Peel-why? Becasue this wee square of citrus peel filled soap can energize your senses and your skin

5. Jasmine and Henna Fluff-Eaze hair treatment-why? It's a pre-wash treatment to help control frizz, moisturize and get hair smelling good and lookin' shiny!

I have some more fun stuff from LUSH to share, so stay tuned! In the meantime, visit the www.lush.com website and find your country flag then get to ordering! Unless that is you are in the Los Angeles area and can make it to the retail location.

Remember to bring in your 5 black pots to turn in and recycle and receive your free fresh mask!

Remember: you are beautiful! Thank you for visiting the blog and check back for promotions and beauty giveaways!
