The experts at LUSH Fresh Handmade Cosmetics pride themselves on offering products created with organic fruit and vegetables, fine essential oils, and safe synthetics. They are all about happy people making happy products – and they even put their employees’ smiling faces on each product to prove it! Paired with comic illustrations of each Compounder (the title of each product whipper-upper on staff) is an expiration date to prove product freshness.
I’m a huge fan of what LUSH stands for and have fallen in love with many of their freshly crafted cosmetics. One of my fav offerings is the Sweet Lips Sugar Scrub. It utilizes castor sugar as its main exfoliant and is also infused with other quality ingredients including organic Jojoba oil, Cocoa, and Vanilla extract. The combination provides major softening properties (and fills the air with the aroma of gooey baked cookies). Just mix a pea-sized amount with a splash of water and apply with a circular motion to create buttery smooth lips. The scrub transforms flaky chapped lips into supple perfection. Sweet Lips is also reasonably priced at $9.95.
The best part? IT TASTES LIKE CHOCOLATE. I kid you not. Buff it on and lick off the rest! It’s entirely edible and equally effective. Yum!
