Fresh Handmade Cosmetics
Lush Cosmetics produces amazing products strictly from fresh organic fruits, vegetables, the finest essential oils, and safe synthetics. Everything they sell is handmade and is also made using only vegetarian ingredients. They give back to the planet by using little to no packaging at all. Most of their products can be purchased naked -- everything is out in the open for you to see. The small containers they do provide are made from 100% post-consumer recycled plastic. Their bags are made from 100% post-consumer recycled paper and are compostable.
Sultana of Soap: This by far is my favorite item. It is made with fried apricots. This soap smells AMAZING! It smells very sweet but not overbearing. It has a very creamy and soft texture to it. When you wash with it, not only does it leave you smelling wonderful, but your skin feels so soft and smooth afterwards. It's very moisturizing as well.
Cupcake: This product is a face mask for oily or spotty skin. I wanted to try this because I tend to get oily in my T-zone area (forehead, nose, and chin). This mask smells just like chocolate mint candy. It has a very smooth consistency because it is made with Sandalwood Oil. When applying the face mask, leave it on your face for about 5 to 10 minutes then rinse it off with warm water. After my rinse, this mask left my face feeling clean and soft. This specific mask is supposed to moisturize your face so you don't overproduce natural oils. This will aid in the prevention of breakouts. (This mask must be refrigerated because it does not contain preservatives.)
Love Lettuce: I love this face mask! It's main target is to help with dull and flaky skin. I wanted to try this out because other products I've used have dried my face out so bad that it would get flaky. This mask contains honey to moisturize the skin. It also has little exfoliating beads in it to scrub the oil, dirt, and debris away. This product also moisturizes and balances out oily T-zones. It is perfect for me. It left my face feeling soft and with a glow. (This mask must be refrigerated because it does not contain preservatives.)
Guv'ner: This product is a deodorant. Yes, I know it doesn't resemble your average stick of deodorant but it is just as effective. It's said that normal deodorants contain a chemical that is known to cause breast cancer and also stops you from perspiring, which naturally rids your bodily toxins. Lush deodorants are made in powder form because of their organic properties. I found this product fairly hard to apply because it is a loose powder. Guv'ner is made with Calamine Powder and gives off a charcoal lavender smell. It's very effective at fighting odor but it does not stop you from perspiring. It is their strongest deodorant and not to mention it is for men lol.
Overall, I love each one of these products and can't wait to try all the other products.
