Blow out the candles this HOT SUMMER with LUSH.

Ciao bella,

Happy Tenth Birthday to LUSH Fresh Handmade Cosmetics. Party on with their new line of six scented Shower Jellies. Created especially for the birthday celebration, these revolutionary soap jellies contain all the moisturizing, cleansing, and essential oils that stimulate the mind and body. Cool them off in the fridge to cool you down.

Everyone is always looking for a protective day cream. Try LUSH's Ulrtalight Moisturizer. It protects from the harmful aging effects of the sun's rays.

Need to exfoliate? Try Sandstone, a citrusy soap containing grains of sand to polish the body with a skin tingling sensation. Gets the circulation going. The Brazilians do it.

Too many sports on the beach? Hot Java bath bomb warms those aching muscles. Also great for a night-before of too many fruit-infused vodka martinis.

BB Seaweed Mask contains seaweed shipped fresh to LUSH every week from the West Coast of British Columbia. It polishes, moisturizes and tones your complexion with rose petals, olive oil and aloe vera.

Everyone's got the fever --Fever Massage Bar inspired by the era of Marilyn Monroe and pink Cadillacs. It delivers an erotic scent with a creamy cocoa and shea butter finish.

You've Been Mangoed is the pick of the bunch for a bath to reawaken the spirits and relieve fatigue.

A silky shave you'll get when you use Prince Triple Orange Blossom Shaving Cream. A fabulously soothing base of rose water and almond oil with linseed mucilage, cocoa butter and glycerin. The prince scent wafts around your nose helping you to stay cool and calm and steady as you shave.

Next slip on Silky Underwear, a luxurious dusting powder with tiny bits of cocoa butter so you can continue the birthday party feeling soft, scented and sensual. Visit your nearest LUSH location or

Buona giornata and God bless the United States of America!
