I never really saw the appeal of LUSH Cosmetics, but for my first weekend outing in the city, my new roommate took me to Somerset Mall and I had to see what LUSH was all about. There are no LUSH stores in Kalamazoo but I love watching hauls. I knew that they were a conscious brand, with all animal-friendly ingredients, and that they also encouraged recycling and human rights advocacy. I hadn't, however, heard of their #GayIsOK initiative, which I was instantly drawn to.
This soap looks like a block of gold and has a great social message, so clearly I was all about it. And it smells fruity and delicious. AND last week's Supreme Court ruling warrants a little celebration. We were worried about whether or not the gold glitter would stay all over our hands, but the sales consultant told us that it dissolves (not that I'd really care... glitter is awesome.)
I couldn't just buy soap, so I picked up this fun product, as well. I've seen it on Instagram when using my hometown's hashtag, and figured that I should own any and all things Kalamazoo, if possible. This product is a beard and facial wash and I have no idea why it's named after my city. I don't have a beard (clearly) but this smells amazing and will make a great gift for a guy who does.
And masks are my obsession, so I picked up one of those, too. My skin has been awful lately - probably a combination of stress, too many greasy pizzas, and putting my workout routine on hold. Cupcake is specifically for oily or spotty skin, and includes ingredients like chocolate (duh!), spearmint, and vanilla. Like everything else, it smells almost good enough to eat.
How could you possibly go wrong?
