There is nothing that I love more than a relaxing shower. The kind of shower where you go in with a horrible mood, but come out feeling much better. Well, the products at LUSH help me do just that. I get that nice, relaxing shower and come out feeling better than I did when I went in. Plus, I get the benefit of treating my skin, making it softer and smoother than before. And the aromatherapy is a fantastic bonus.
In New Orleans, there is a large LUSH store where I shop. It can be very overwhelming, but in a good way. In addition to shower products, there are bath products such as “bath bombs” that contain essential oils and moisturizers, hair products and the list goes on. All products are handmade and cruelty free. The company also makes donations to charities like grassroots organizations.
There are plenty of items for you to pamper yourself, but the ones I am liking now are these three products which I like to use in the shower:
- WHOOSH SHOWER JELLY – a shower jelly is exactly what it sounds like. It has the consistency of Jello, only this shower jelly is made from a softening seaweed gel base, which gently cleanses your skin. It also contains fruit extracts, essential oils and vitamin-rich juices which will leave you smelling fabulous. What is really neat about this shower jelly is that you can place it in the refrigerator until it is as cool as you want it. Then hop into a hot shower and use a cool and fresh jelly to wash yourself. The Whoosh Shower Jelly retails $7.95 for 3.5oz and $12.95 for 8.4oz.
- TURKISH DELIGHT SHOWER SMOOTHIE -a shower smoothie has the consistency of whipped butter. It is very creamy and has ingredients such as sweet almond and coconut oils. And the aloe vera and rose softens and conditions your skin. You slather the smoothie all over your skin, wait a minute and rinse off. Be sure to pat dry. You don’t want to loose all of the conditioning ingredients. The Turkish Delight Shower Smoothie retails for $37.95 for 7.0oz.
- KARMA KREAM – so you are out of the shower and need to moisturize. Turn to Karma Kream. It contains almond oil and cocoa butter body lotion. It smells like orange, patchoulli and pine. I like using this the most because it really moisturizes my dry skin, which becomes extra dry during the winter season. Karma Kream is also blended with fragrant oils like lemongrass, pine and patchouli. The combination of these oils gives off a relaxing aroma. The Karma Kream retails for $29.95 for 7.9oz.
Those are my main LUSH go-to’s. If you are looking to save money, and who isn’t, just buy the Karma Kream. Whatever soap you use, you can always count on the Karma Kream to moisturize your dry, winter skin. You can find your local LUSH store by going to their website www.lush.com.
