Today’s Friday Favorites post came at a great time because I just came down with an wicked cold and I definitely need some pampering time! I used to be a huge Lush fan about 10 years ago, but I became so obsessed with it that I bought too much, received a bunch as gifts, and then never actually used it all and just kind of forgot about it. However, thankfully I managed to get myself back into Lush and I’m so glad I did, and I can’t wait to share my favorite Lush products with you!
A few weeks ago I was feeling like I needed some serious retail therapy, and after hitting up the usual spots (Aritzia, Nordstrom, Sephora) I found myself wandering aimlessly into Lush for the first time in years. Once I was in there, I couldn’t understand what kept me away for so long, their stuff is amazing! About half an hour of browsing and $70 later, I walked out of the store a very happy woman and couldn’t wait to go home and try out my new goodies.
For those of you not familiar with Lush, they are an ethical cosmetics company who only sells 100% vegetarian, handmade cosmetics and they are against animal testing. They are well known for their bath bombs and bubble bars, but they also sell everything from makeup to perfume to skincare. If you haven’t checked them out yet, I highly recommend tracking down your closest store and paying them a visit. I promise that you won’t leave empty handed!
To explain just how much I love all of this stuff, that original purchase was about 4 weeks ago and since then I have had to repurchase because I already used everything up.
I have 5 favorites from Lush and I can’t wait to share them with you!
Creamy Candy Bubble Bar – $7.95 – Lush stores or online
Bubble bars are something that I don’t think I have seen anywhere other than Lush, and I consider them to be a must have product. Once you try one, you will understand why! It’s hard to have a bath without one once you see how many bubbles they make! The soft, silky skin you experience after the bath is even more amazing. The scent of this bar is a vanilla cotton candy and it is addictive! One thing I love about Lush bars is they make my bathroom smell amazing even when they’re not in use!
The Comforter Bubble Bar – $12.95 (you can get multiple uses out of it) – Lush stores or online
One of my favorite things about this bubble bar is the pink colour it gives your bath water! Second is the smell, it smells SO good and whenever I use it you can smell it throughout my entire house. Described by Lush as blackcurrant candy, the description is perfect! The bubbles it creates are just the icing on the bubble bath cake!
Floating Island Luxury Bath Oil – $4.95 – Lush stores or online
Who doesn’t love adding luxurious oils to their bath tub?! This one definitely feels like a luxury and with sandalwood oil, lemon oil and vanilla bean, how would it not?! Such a good way to wind down and relax after a long day!
Scrubee Body Butter – $7.95 – Lush stores or online
Can we just stop for a moment and appreciate how insanely cute this body scrub bar is?! It actually looks like a bee! I have this on a tray in my bathroom when it’s not in use and it makes my bathroom smell heavenly! This shower bar is made out of cocoa butter (hence the delicious scent!) and uses ground almonds and coconut shells to give your body an all over alternating exfoliating and moisturizing experience.
Soft Coeur Massage Bar – $9.95 – Lush stores or online
This was one of my favorites years ago so it doesn’t surprise me that it’s made it onto that list again. Made out of cocoa butter, cocoa powder and almond oil, it seriously smells good enough to eat. You can use this with another person (personally I never have, I don’t like to share 😉 ) but it’s also perfectly acceptable to use alone. You just rub it into dry skin and immediately you have deliciously scented, soft skin.
