LUSH the key to holiday bliss


Today I am going to save you all frustration and harassment of finding the perfect gift for whatever holiday you celebrate. LUSH is the answer. LUSH is a small company which makes a variety of amazingly wonderful bath goodness by hand.

LUSH is the perfect gift for your family and friends who are: environmentalists, travelers, stressed, divas, and teenage girls. YES. Teenage girls love LUSH.

Allow me to show you why LUSH is so awesome. I only need one product: shampoo. LUSH has two forms of shampoo. liquid and solid. Their solid shampoos are perfect for those concerned with the environment. There is no plastic bottle or other damaging packaging. The traveler will love the solid shampoo because it won’t spill in the suitcase. The variety of natural scents will appeal to those who need stress relief, the divas who want pampering, and the teens who change their mind about their favorite scent on a daily basis. Both the liquid and solid shampoo have rich lather and leave your hair clean and lightly scented.

LUSH’s other products suit a variety of people, too. Our environmentalist and travelers will love the solid conditioner, soaps, and lotions. There is another line of products they call body butters, and you use them after you’re soapy in the shower. My favorite is the Buffy bar, it exfoliates as it moisturizes, and it smells divine. Convenient metal reusable tins can also be purchased to store your LUSH products for easy storage and transport.

Don’t worry, those stressed and in need of pampering, the divas who demand pampering, and the teens on your list haven’t been forgotten. There is a huge variety of bath jellies and bath bombs which scent, bubble, color and/or glitter the water. Lip scrubs polish the skin of your lips, then because LUSH is awesome, you can lick it off. They make the scrub from sugar and nature flavors. There are lip balms, perfumes, and a ton of other delectable items to choose from.
Wait, don’t cower in fear at the magnitude of choices, LUSH is here to help. You can go to one of their many stores through out the world. I love their staff, always so nice and eager to share with you their newest product by giving you samples. I love getting free stuff 🙂

You can also go to their website LUSH. They have a gift finder button. Just put in whom you want to buy a gift for. There are nine different choices including Secret Santa and kids. Then you pick a price range: under $25, $25-50, or over $50 (you can use the last one for me 🙂 And TA-DA! The perfect gift will appear on your screen ready to be shipped right to you or the lucky recipient.

I unfortunately don’t have a LUSH near me, and the body bar I adore melts at body temp. Having stuff mailed to me is a challenge, living as I do in the desert. Even in the winter, temps can be too high for safe mailing. So I drive to my closest LUSH. The fact that it’s two hours away should tell you how much I adore their products. So please save yourself this holiday season, go and check out the awesomeness that is LUSH, and yes I will create a twelve step program for next year once you’re all addicted.

Something else that makes me happy- Asian boy bands. I don’t know why, but I love them. I don’t think I’ve shown this one before- I really need to start a list.

  1. LUSH sounds wonderful, Alica. I’m going to go online and see if there’s something for my 13-year-old daughter. I’m sure there will be. I don’t know why the Asian Boy Band reminds me of either NSync or someone else. I like them.

  2. I LOVE LUSH!!! I’m so excited that they are opening a store in Dallas, FINALLY!! I stock up on LUSH products every time we go to Vegas. It is always the first store I go to!! (We just got back from Vegas and I have a large LUSH shopping bag still sitting on my bathroom counter.) My absolute favorite bath mixes two LUSH products. The ‘Big Blue’ Bath Bomb (which is like bringing the ocean to your tub) mixed with the ‘Sunny Side’ Bubble bar. This is basically all gold glitter. When you mix the two, it makes you feel like a magical mermaid. The other thing I stock up on is the ‘Hottie’ massage bars. Wanna spice up your sex life a little? BUY ONE and massage your man with it. It smells so good and when you rub it on your (or someone else’s!) body it’s like a mixture of lotion/oil. It makes you feel so soft.
    Great post, Alicia!! In case you can’t tell, I agree with you and LOVE LUSH!!!

    • I think everyone who has ever tried LUSH loves it- how can you not? I haven’t thought of mixing the LUSH- my tub sucks. I’m going to get those and then rent a hotel room with a nice tub. And the message bar that is so on my list!
      Thanks Jillian! Someday we shall have to go LUSH shopping together 🙂

  3. We were once stuck in an airport for hours and found LUSH. It was so much fun, the sales associates did demos of the bath bombs and offered samples. Of course i spent a bunch of money I didn’t intend on spending—but who doesn’t need soap?? 🙂

  4. Holy coincidence Batman … at the Emerald City Writers’ Conference I just attended, they gave out samples. I came home with 3 little soaps, (I think they’re soaps) that have the most divine lemon smell. I didn’t realize what a treasure trove I had. Each one has a coupon but alas, there isn’t a story nearby that I know of. (Central Texas)

    I’m going to check out their stock online. Woo!!

    • They have a store locator and Jillian said they are opening one in Dallas- don’t know if that’s close at all. I have to drive several hours to get to my LUSH and then I stalk up on the goodies. 🙂
      Thanks Ginger

  5. I love your log line. So cool. I’ve never heard of the LUSH products before. Thanks for the heads up. I’ll have to ask my daughters if they’ve heard of it. What a shame you have to drive two hours to buy it! That’s dedication to a product!

  6. I used to use Lush all the time. But I don’t have one near me and I don’t like paying to have my stuff shipped all the time. I will pick it up when I am near one. I prefer to be in a store where I can see and smell everything. My skin and hair is rather sensitive. 😦 I would use “Big” all the time trying to give my hair more volume. Lord knows it needs it.
