I’m pretty stoked on Lush. Every time I find myself close to a store, I stop in and pick up the essentials. Today I am going to share with you what those essentials are. If you are a lover of patchouli and earth-scented soaps… stick around, you’re gonna love these selections.
1. Twilight Bath Bomb // Link
6.3 oz | $5.95
Lush says: “Recreate the magic of a starry night in your bath water with clouds of lavender, ylang ylang and ovaltine to fight the demons of insomnia and soothe your stressed out body and mind. Our most relaxing Bath Bomb yet, Twilight is our gentle, reassuring hug for the bath to transform you from worn out to warm and fuzzy. It changes colour like the sky at dusk, from pinks to purples and darker still. Lay back in the comforting herbal waters to soak your troubles far, far away.”
Herbal tonic: Lavender acts as nature’s melatonin to relax your mind for a more restful sleep.
Bedtime story: Take the bitter edge off of sleeplessness with sweet tonka absolute, vanilla’s saucier cousin.
Comforting and relaxing: Ovaltine is added for soothing, creamy bath water; our version of a warm glass of milk before bed.
2. Karma Bubble Bar // Link
3.5 oz. | $8.45
Lush says: “Good Karma is difficult to come by these days, so that’s why we created a bubble bar with our signature pine and patchouli fragrance in a potent swirl of time-warping bubbles so you can bathe in Karma too. Our customers begged us for a bubble bar with the same orange and multi-layered spice fragrance as our perfume. Now you can transport your senses to a middle-eastern spice market from the comforting confines of your tub. Since Karma is a fragrance that keeps on giving, it was the least we could do for our loyal fans.”
Customer fave: Bathe in your favorite fragrance for a truly transcendental soak.
Good elemi too: We use elemi oil in our Karma products for its unique aroma and skin conditioning properties.
Feeling a bit heady? Pine oil is often used by aromatherapists to clear the mind.
3. Yuzu and Cocoa Bubbleroon // Link
3.5 oz | $5.95 (for 2)
Lush says: “Inspired by the unusual Japanese fruit the yuzu (kind of like a Satsuma orange), this Bubbleroon has a delectable orange chocolate fragrance, with exotic tropical undertones and an uplifting grapefruit top note. It makes mountains of fluffy white bubbles and the most sublimely soft bath water you’ve ever had. With Extra Virgin coconut oil and Fair Trade Shea Butter (like all of our Bubbleroons) Yuzo and Cocoa is the cr me de la cr me of chocolatey, moisturizing, and soothing baths.”
Delectable and skin softening: A truly gorgeous citrus and chocolate scent in mounds and mounds of skin soothing bubbles.
Delightfully decadent: We use real cocoa absolute to give this one its amazingly chocolate-y fragrance.
Citrus twist: We love the citrus and tropical notes. For those who can’t get enough, twist the Bubbleroon in half and save the rest for later.
4. Karma Kream // Link
7.9oz | $27.95 (it lasts foreeever)
Lush says: “Our orange flower and patchouli oil body lotion packs good Karma into one Kreamy pot. We created our Karma Kream to capture our best-selling signature perfume in a calming body lotion so Karma fans and converts can layer good Karma from head to toe. Smooth it all over your body for unbelievable spicy, citrusy fragrance and skin-soothing kindness that will repay itself twofold. It’s a rich, almond oil based cream with blended with the finest Fair Trade cocoa butter to soften and balance dry skin while orange oil helps to brighten your skin tone.”
Good Karma: Perfect for those who want to nourish dry skin and layer themselves in another layer of Karma.
Light and lovely: The almond oil makes it lighter than some of our other body moisturizers and the signature Karma fragrance settles onto the skin for the rest of the day.
Soothing and calming: Lavendin oil is used in our Karma range, from soap to fragrance and hair care. It helps to soothe the skin and promote a calmer mood.
5. Karma Soap (yes, I’m a Karma scented fan) // Link
3.5 oz. | $7.95
Lush Says: “An all-time classic, Karma is the ultimate LUSH scent. Spicy patchouli is complemented with refreshing lemongrass, orange oil and pine to create a clean and lovely smell that lasts on the skin for ages after you’ve washed. One whiff and you’ll be hooked – for this life and the next. There’s enough Karma fragrance in each bar to perfume your whole body each time you wash, and transports you back to the days of free love and flower power. Give yourself good Karma; if you’ve been mindful and brimming with loving kindness, this is the soap to reward you.”
Pineing for Karma: With its refreshing, green scent, Aromatherapists use pine oil for its cleansing and antiseptic qualities.
Lovely lavendin: Lavendin oil is used in our Karma range, from soap to fragrance and hair care. It helps to soothe the skin and promote a calmer mood.
Good Karma: Due to customer demand, we’ve created an entire range so you can wash, bubble and bathe in Karma from head to toe.
As you can see, I love the Karma scent. It’s spicy patchouli, refreshing lemongrass, orange oil and pine. Yum.
