When a pakkie arrives from Lush it’s always a good day. If you order from them online you’ll know I’m not lying when I say you can usually smell your goodies before you open the parcel.
Anyway, this particular package was full of what the PR said would help me take care of my ‘mouth’ as it wasn’t just lip items, it included their ‘toothy tabs’, self-preserving pilletjies that dissolve in your mouth to be used like tooth paste! Also, little mouth wash pellets!
But ja! Let’s take a proper look, shall we?
I thought I’d highlight some of my favourites, starting with another lime lovely and that’s their Key Lime Pie lip balm (R95).
Made using a whopload of natural moisturisers (think almond, jojoba and argan oil, coconut wax and Shea butter), this guy smells delish and tastes like a sweet frozen lime margarita. I’ve been using him on my lips as well as my cuticles but licking my fingers afterwards is a bit of a challenge.
Another balm that’s a goodie if you like a bit of a colour is Lush Strawberry Bombshell lip tint (R120).
Again, it’s a mix of natural hydrators like Shea butter and coconut and Kalahari melon oil but also contains antioxidant vitamin C-packed fresh strawberries!
Another gem? Lush Mint Julips lip scrub (R105).
Mint Julips is a castor sugar and jojoba oil lip scrub that, to me, smells just like Peppermint Crisp, possibly my favourite chocolate in the world. (Like, if I had emigrate or something, half my suitcase would be crammed with them. No lies!) While it works a treat, stopping myself from eating it net so has been a problem.
Last, but not least have you seen Lush’s ‘lipsticks’ (R195)?
Packaged in li’l bottles with doe-foot applicators, these guys are more like liquid pigments (mixed with hydrating jojoba oil so as not to dry out your skin) that can be used anywhere. Bubbly, for example, is a shimmery pink that actually looks best when used as a cream blush. Confident is a deep plum that you could easily use as an eye shadow, provided you apply it after a good primer. (For me, Urban Decay’s shadow primers are still the best money can buy.)
If you’ve spotted anything you’d like to try know that they’re all total gems, vegan-friendly and 100% cruelty-free.
A big dankie to Lush for the spoil!
