Or: Why I love Lush Cosmetics…
I can’t believe that about 12 years ago I used to work off of Main Street in Santa Monica & walk by the Lush Store that was there and think to myself: “silly. smelly. store!”
That location closed and time passed. I finally ventured into the shop and surrendered to the fuss that the staff make of you. (Not my typical comfort zone). Their enthusiasm was contagious and the products simply YUMMY. I started going semi-regularly. Trying new products. Some were misses. But many were definite HITS and have become products that I don’t want to live without.
D. has gotten into the habit of gifting me with gift cards for special occasions, which is nice. And he really rang my bells a few christmases ago, when he bought the epic BIG RED BOX. Apparently that is a chick magnet, for any of you men out there. He had female customers following him around the store & sighing wistfully. !!!
In any case–yes. They are a little on the spendy side. Buy as someone who does not treat herself to the type of pampering that I see other ladies regualrly indulge in, I figure that it is fine. And in finding those products that I don’t want to be without, they are the best money I spend. They are the packaging, scents and rituals that mark my days and nights. I smell and taste delicious, thank you!
Plus the company has a great ethical stance that is easy to get totally behind.
Here’s a slide show of my tried and true favorites. Feel free to comment or message me if you have any questions about these goods or any suggestions of your own. I am always down for sharing the Lush Lore.
