Ciao bella,

This cosmetics grocery store is just brimming with marvelous goodies.

Calming, soothing silky skin --your body is yearning for it. Jump into spring at bath time with Honey Bee bath bomb. You'll be bathing in the color of sunshine. And the smell of honey is delicious, but don't drink the water! This bomb is actually made with honey, aloe vera and sweet orange oil.

Everyone knows how chocolate elevates the mood. Try a bath chock full of bubbles with the Ma Bar solid bubble bar. A caramelized sugar, chocolate, honey and cocoa butter concoction for calming and sensual loveliness.

Another honey marvel is the fresh facial mask Brazened Honey. It detoxifies your mug with fennel, lime and juniper, while soothing your skin with honey and exfoliates with ground almond shells. It treats abused skin with lots of TLC.

My fav from day one is the cleansing bar Honey, I Just Washed the Kids. The irresistible scent of sticky toffee and honey make it smell good enough to eat. It's made with aloe vera and honey water. You'll be counting the hours 'til your next shower.

Instead of another cup of coffee to perk you up, there is Party on Temple Balm made to energize you and sharpen your senses. It's prepared with a coffee infusion, peppermint oil, menthol oil, rosemary oil, lime oil and fresh lemongrass. You'll experience the energy from the moment you rub it onto temple or pulse points.

Want your lips kissably soft? Whipstick Lip Balm made with essential oils of orange, tangerine, vanilla and of course sensuous chocolate will keep your lips protected and delicious.

LUSH Fresh Handmade Cosmetics can be found in over 270 locations worldwide with 23 LUSH locations across Canada and 17 in the U.S. You can order a catalog online at or by calling 888-733-LUSH. You can also pop by their Newbury Street location in Boston for a memorable experience.

Buona giornata.
