Shake Off Winter Blues With LUSH

Ciao bella,

It’s that wonderful time of the year again when you know winter is going, going, GONE!

That fresh smell of spring is in the air and you can feel a delicious breeze across your face. So time to brighten your mood and moisturize that winter burdened, environment rattled skin into some soft, dewy LUSHness!

Start with: COCO LOTION- inspired by the Caribbean. Its soft scent of oils and herbs include mandarin, rosemary and pineapple. This protein rich moisturizer naturally balances skin’s PH and will leave your skin soft and smooth. The extra virgin coconut oil used in COCO LOTION comes from NIAS, a small Indonesian island badly stricken by the tsunami. LUSH supports these communities and has helped them restore their island and even build a NEW kids club for local children.

KING OF SKIN—this is red carpet worthiness! A solid crown-shaped body butter that will leave your skin deliciously scented, smooth and shiny. With skin softening oatmeal, jojoba and almond oils, organic bananas are whipped up with extra virgin coconut oil and cocoa and shea butters—ahhhh—silky and fit for a king.

SYMPATHY FOR THE SKIN—for really dry, neglected with that alligator skin feel... SYMPATHY is for you. Packed with skin softeners and vitamin C and scented with vanilla bean so you will subtly smell of creamy vanilla cream custard! So give yourself gloriously touchable skin once again

Retro LUSH presents once again-HAPPY 4 SAD—put some sunshine in your shower! This Ultra Violet, citrus gel will surround you with sunshine and brighten a gloomy day. Made with Fresh Dove Orchid Infusion, aloe vera gel, grapefruit oil, and fine sea salt—sunshine for body and hair in a bottle.
