Start The New Year Off "LUSH-ously"!

Ciao bella,

The elves at LUSH have been busily putting together wonderful product to soften and fragrance your skin--so delightfully!

Here are just a few......

GLÖGG SHOWER GEL--for those who are still indulging (or wish they were!) at the bar, or for a quick pick-up with a spicy scent to be lathered on hair and your bod. Inspired by traditional English Glögg, a warming, fruity mulled drink-great for keeping you nice and toasty. This festive shower gel gets your circulation going with orange flower oil. cinnamon bark extract, red wine, clove, brandy--just don't drink it!

CINDERS BATH BOMB--crackling bath (pop rocks!) is a warming soak with spicy cinnamon leaf, orange and almond oils.

MANDARIN'S TEA PARTY SOAP--a fruity masterpiece made with orange juice, crystallized ginger and dried orange peels for a refreshing scrub! Truly a must feel good “scentsation”!!!

BON BON LIP SCRUB--a yummy buffer for your smackers! Superbly sophisticated lemon sherbet texture and flavor with a cranberry kick! Wow!

ONCE-A-YEAR MASSAGE BAR--this moustache-adorned bar of (heaven) cocoa butter is infused with brandy and cinnamon--truly delectable and addictive. Massages all around all year with this baby!

SUMMER PUDDING SOAP--for a taste/scentual memory of summer. Grab a slice of this herbal dream. Heaps of ground almonds, a splash of zesty lemon makes your bath time a "berried" treasure of fragrance. More like a dessert!

So gals don't miss out on the fab products! LUSH has outdone themselves this year. I have personally used all of these terrific products! So keep it soft and scented baby for 2012!

Buona giornata, and God bless the United States of America!
