Lush storefront. Fortunately for me, Lush is 90% vegan, cruelty free & an ethical company. All of which I consider when I make my beauty and cosmetic purchases.
While in Dublin, I knew there were products I was in the market for, so I stopped in. I knew I needed shampoo & recently heard about their shampoo bars. There are SO many options for their shampoo bars. & they work perfectly for traveling because it’s one less liquid product to worry about. I decided on Godiva Solid Shampoo Bar because it is both a shampoo and conditioner bar. (That way I wouldn’t have to carry my conditioner anymore!) It smells lovely and really leaves my hair soft, shiny & light.
I was also in the market for some lotion. I told the sale associate that the New Charity Pot Body Lotion that I had been using was really greasy on my hands (& would take forever to sink into my skin). He said that it can be greasy because it has olive oil in the ingredients. He suggested Handy Gurugu. I tried it on my hands it’s a smooth body butter consistency. I liked it immediately. Unfortunately after I purchased it, I realized it’s just a hand cream. It doesn’t bother me to rub on the rest of my body. Oh well.
Then I thought that Lush carrying toothpaste was a long shot, but I know they carry a lot of different products so I decided to give it a try. He informed me that they have a whole line of toothpaste flavors. Lush takes pride in their reduced impact on the earth so they strive to have packaging that will be able to be recycled or reused. Typical toothpaste tubes apparently cannot be recycled because there is no way for the product to be completely out of the tube (according to the sales associate). So Lush created Toothy Tabs which are a solid form of toothpaste that you dissolve in your mouth to create a paste in your mouth. Fascinating! The packaging comes in a little cardboard box so there is less impact on the earth. I’ve been using this product for a little over a month and have found that I only need half a tab to have enough toothpaste (I just bite off half and put the other half back in the box. I tried cutting it with a knife and it just makes a mess). The paste lathers really well and does a good job and whitening.
I’ve really enjoyed these Lush products and suggest them highly. Lush is becoming one of my favorite stores & I’ve become a little obsessed. Are their any Lush items you love? Any suggestions for future purchases? ;)
