Lush's products are all made using as many natural ingredients possible and keeping harsh and unnecessary chemicals to a minimum to help leave your skin feeling soft, luxurious and truly clean without that strong chemical smell.
Everything smells fresh and is made from fresh natural ingredients and have a shorter shelf life in comparison to most products you find within the high street, however this won't be a problem for anyone as the stuff from lush are that divine that you'll use them almost instantly. They have every scent imaginable from citrus scents to bubble gum candy fragrances and chocolate! Ideal for those who enjoy a delectable variety of cruelty free products.
As a lot of you may have heard, lush have recently done a display in a number of their stores across the UK demonstrating and active cause against cosmetic testing on animals - They are 110% against animal testing and do not condone it in any way shape or form so you have peace of mind knowing that you're purchasing products that are friendly in many ways!
They often have special limited edition items at certain times of the year such as christmas time; they have snow fairy which is one of the most popular products available and I can confirm that it is definitely my favourite product and worth every single penny! I've never been able to get my hands on such a lovely and sweet smelling body wash that leaves my skin feeling so soft and smelling like candy. It makes me genuinely feel happy and refreshed every single time I use it, so much so that I use it as shampoo also (it says it is suitable for your hair as well as your body anyway so there's no harm in doing this).
They also have fresh face masks available that work wonders for your skin - this is providing you've found the ideal one for you. I personally choose the blueberry one as it smells lovely and it soothes and refreshes my skin and actually controls my breakouts for at least a week, which is something I've never found from any of these leading skin care ranges. So my advice is to treat yourself to a mask every now and then! Whats more is that if you recycle 5 of their bottles/tubs/containers by returning them to any lush store, you receive a free face mask in return so everyone's a winner!
The delivery from the website is completely reliable and delivery took around 2 days for it to arrive around the Christmas period which is impressive for that time of year. Gift boxes come with delightful gift boxes with unique bright designs on and tied up with a ribbon, so it saves you gift wrapping them. Standard items still come in a sturdy cardboard box with foam padding to make sure they have a safe journey. You also receive a copy of their "lush times" newspaper which advertises their latest products and offers and events and also smells amazing itself so you actually enjoy reading it even more because of how amazing the paper smells even though they haven't done it on purpose everything about lush is LUSH!
I hope this company stays around for years and years to come as I absolutely adore everything about it - the staff are always friendly and they are open to accepting those with tattoos, piercings and bright hair colours, which is great as it truly shows that they are a caring but laid back company that cares about their consumers as well as their staff - that's something I never find myself talking about when it comes to how companies work as I pay attention to the products and the service in general but it makes me appreciate lush even more when they hold no prejudice against anyone at all. Basically everyone is welcome here and everything is fantastic!
Summary: a lovely unique collection of fabulous fragrances - all cruelty free and amazing all round!
