Confession: I am a Lush

Ever since I was diagnosed with cancer six years ago*, I have become more wary about what goes into my body. Besides food, I have also started using organic body washes and household cleaners. Unfortunately, the organic body washes on the market are often expensive and bland smelling. That is why I was so excited when my friend Devon introduced me to the wide, wonderful world of Lush.

Lush is a company based in Canada that is committed to creating handmade cosmetics with the fresh, organic fruits and vegetables. They have a wide array of specially formulated fragrances to suit any personality or mood.

Not only are the products good for you and the environment, they are also effective. Everytime I use one of their soaps or shampoos I leave my shower feeling squeaky clean so I do not feel like I have compromised any quality just to be “healthy”.

Below are some of my favorite items:

Honey I Washed the Kids Soap – With masses of honey and aloe, this bar is perfect for people with sensitive skin. Topped with a slice of beeswax and infused with bergamot and sweet orange to sweeten up even the darkest of days. Has a rich, thick lather.

Seanik Solid Shampoo – Sea salt and seaweed are the key ingredients to this body boosting volumizing shampoo. The solid bar is easy to use and has no wasteful packaging or preservatives. One bar averages about ninety washings.

Each Peach (And Two’s a Pair) Massage Bar – A solid massage bar is today’s cure for messy oils. This bar is jam packed with cocoa, shea, and avocado butter so it also doubles as a moisturizer, which is a lifesaver on my back – – especially in the winter months.

Aqua Marina Cleanser – This seaweed cleanser is packed with seaweed, calamine and aloe for sensitive and dry skin. Take a pinch, mix with warm water and gently massage paste into your skin. It does not lather up like traditional cleansers. A quick rinse and you will be left with the cleanest, softest, soothed face ever. I will never go back to my old face wash again!

I definitely urge you to give their products a try! I had my doubts but I have been converted into a lifelong fan.   If you would like to check out any of the products in-store, the two closest brick and mortars in the DC area are in Georgetown and McLean.

**I have been cancer free for five years and am considered fully recovered!
