Stuff Their Stocking with LUSH!

It’s the time of year for pretty parties and punches that pack a wallop to put you in the holiday spirit! What better way to spice up this festive season than with bubbles and soaps that will keep you smelling and feeling good as the night wears on? LUSH has a number of products loaded with cheer that will help keep that holiday feeling alive long into the New Year!

LET’S GET THIS PARTY STARTED:
Here are a few items that are sure to get the celebration off on the right foot (or hand, or arm, or leg…)!

Santa not only smells great but he makes the perfect scrub for soft, smooth skin. I love how great my skin feels after and my bathroom smells delicious.

Sandy Santa Sugar Scrub ($5.95) – Start the night off by scrubbing up with the big man! A fun sugar scrub to help you eliminate all the overindulgences and toxins of the celebratory season. Use in the shower, work in circular motions all over the body and allow the sand and sugar to reveal brighter and smoother skin. Vegan

Popcorn Lip Scrub ($8.95) – A tasty treat to prep your pout! Take a small amount of this lip scrub and apply to lips in a circular motion – the castor sugar will gently scrub away any dry flaky skin while the organic jojoba oil will soothe any redness and soreness. Follow with your favourite LUSH lip product to keep your kisses mistletoe ready! Vegan

Emotional Brilliance Liquid Lipstick ($18.95) – Grab some Glamorous or prepare for a Passionate smooch with LUSH’s patent pending liquid lip formula. Super softening Ultrabalm is the base, which is a simple blend of organic jojoba oil, candelilla wax and rose wax. Lips will be brilliantly coloured and left soft, smooth and deeply moisturized. Vegan

If you want to get someone in the mood for a little winter lovin’ look no further than the LUSH Midnight Massage Bar. The vanilla and jasmine are warm and sensual and perfect for the cold, winter months. I love how the bar warms up and creates the most amazing massage lotion. 

Midnight Massage Bar ($9.95) – Enjoy a cheeky massage before the clock strikes midnight and see where the evening takes you! A deeply moisturizing base of cocoa and shea butters are blended with vanilla absolute and sensual jasmine.

TIP UP YOUR CUP!
Pick up some of these boozy bubblers and pop the top off your pre-game party!

Nothing better on a cold, dark morning then a quick wake me up from LUSH Mr. Punch soap. The fruity, tropical scents will help get you going and ready for your day.

Mr. Punch Soap ($6.95 for 100g) – When you turn it upside-down, this soap looks like a delicious bowl of punch with fruit floating in it. LUSH was inspired to make a fruity, tropical, boozy punch scent for this soap, and we did so with juniper berry oil, blackcurrant absolute, lime oil and a splash of gin. Vegan

Golden Wonder Bath Bomb ($6.95) – Celebrate the season with a fizzy champagne-inspired scented present-shaped bath bomb for someone you love (including yourself). Drop this festive package into the tub and watch it put on a colorful show as the vibrant gifts inside are revealed. Vegan

If you love the Mr Punch soap you are going to be hooked on Ponche. It smells good enough to drink a perfect spicy, fruity scent. Get in the shower and let Ponche get you clean and ready for all your holiday parties.

Ponche Shower Gel ($9.95 – $27.95) – Spanish for punch, this shower gel is inspired by the Mexican fruit punch made from seasonal fruits such as plums, oranges as well as cinnamon and vanilla, which can help warm and stimulate the senses. Wash your hair and body with this fruity, softening shower gel and lift your spirits on dark, gloomy days. There’s even a dash of tequila to give it a little kick! Vegan

Had A Very Shiny Nose ($23.95) – Perfect for the person who had too much to drink, these little treats are scent-sational to wash your body with. Sandy Santa will polish skin while the olive oil and mandarin juice in Olive Branch softens and uplifts. The splash of gin in Mr. Punch will give a kick!

LUSH makes bathtime FUN!

I had the chance to check out the Blue FUN and I have to say it lives up to the name. The promise of sculpting little animals at bathtime was the perfect incentive the finish homework and get ready for bed! The kids and I had a ton of fun playing with our moldable FUN soap. Once we had created our masterpieces the kids couldn’t wait to hop in the tub and clean up. This would make a great stocking stuffer for the kid in your life or the adult who needs a little FUN

LUSH introduces FUN.
Who says kids are the only ones that can have a fun bath or shower experience? Certainly not LUSH! Our latest invention is a multi-purpose, moldable soap for your body hair and bath called, you guessed it, FUN! That’s right, you can wash with it; you can bathe with it for masses of bubbles; and you can even mold it into crazy shapes. Perfect for kids who might not like bathtime, adults who are young at heart, teens who like to play in the shower (even if they won’t admit it!), and anyone who loves great smelling, softening soap!

But the fun doesn’t stop at the bathtub; we’re making it our mission to spread the fun to those who need it most, children living in challenging environments. A portion of the global sales (2.5%) of FUN will go into a newly created FunD and will be distributed as grants to projects providing recreational activities for children.


FUN ($6.95 each) comes in FIVE fantastic colors, all which have their own unique scent! Your biggest problem will be which to try first…but we of course recommend collecting them all!
1. YELLOW FUN: A comforting blend of vanilla and gardenia, smells like delicious marzipan.
2. GREEN FUN: An uplifting fragrance with lemon and lime oils that awaken the senses.
3. RED FUN: A fruity combination of orange and mandarin oils to revitalize the mind.
4. BLUE FUN: A gentle, soothing hug in the bath before bedtime using calming oils such as lavender and chamomile.
5. PINK FUN: A sweet treat with ice-cream scented tonka absolute and benzoin resinoid which helps to stimulate circulation.

LUSH’s First Color Collection Emotional Brilliance!

Such a cool idea, I can’t wait to spin the wheel and see what my emotional color is!

Emotional Brilliance

Spin the Emotional Brilliance Color Wheel to get a personalized color reading – choose the three colors that stand out the most and they will uncover certain words that reveal a little bit about your current state of mind. Then wear the color to feel the word, you word-up!

Introducing a brand new concept matching psychological needs to which color cosmetics one should wear. This range – consisting of lip colors, eyeliners and eye shadows – is about wearing colors that shape your mood. Choose colors, each with a corresponding word such as Confident, Take Control or Glamorous, and they will be significant to your needs at that time – wear those colors and you truly wear the word.

Liquid Lips ($22.95)

This patent pending formula uses LUSH’s super softening Ultrabalm as a base, which is a simple blend of organic jojoba oil, candelilla wax and rose wax. All are intensely skin softening and soothing, they also carry pigment incredibly well. Lips will be brilliantly colored and left soft, smooth and deeply moisturised. Or, the effect can be softened by applying with a lip balm.

Liquid Eyeliner ($22.95)

Independent and Fantasy are the two eyeliners in the range that have a no-smudge, stay-put formula. As soon as you apply, the formula sets and is incredibly long-lasting. It’s made with a base of eyebright infusion, an herb with an ancient tradition of use for eye area.
The other eyeliners are made with the same base as the cream eyeshadows, which doesn’t set straight away so there is time to blend. These beautiful colors are easy to use to create a softer, more refined look.

Cream Eyeshadow ($22.95)

The eye creams can be bold and colorful or less dramatic as the base softens easily into the skin. The base is a soothing rose petal infusion and skin-softening almond and jojoba oils, so will really care for this most sensitive area. There’s also glycerine to help carry the color beautifully over the eye. The cupuacu butter helps to set the color pigment nicely, so these eyeshadows and eyeliners offer beautiful color that stay in place and last.

How it works:
LUSH Co-Founder and Inventor of Emotional Brilliance, Rowena Bird, comments, “I love lipstick, but why wasn’t one great color ever enough, why was I drawn to a particular one on different days or even sometimes feel the need to change color part way through a day? After chatting with like minded lipstick junkies, it struck us that it wasn’t about what clothes we were wearing but more about how we were feeling and so the idea was born.”

LUSH has worked with renowned Strategic Behavioral Therapist Lady Kennedy, who specializes in changing people’s behavior and attitudes, for the list of words to correspond with each color. They are words she uses in therapy sessions to alter perceptions and change behavior. She specializes in mind care and working on one’s emotional state, where she takes someone from one state of mind and delivers them in another. The Emotional Brilliance range brings this form of exclusive mind therapy to consumers.

This color game is intended to unveil the colors one should wear to fulfil a need – spin the wheel and choose the three colors that stand out at that moment. Not because they are your favorite colors or because they match what you’re wearing, but because you are drawn to them.

These three chosen colors will then be placed in the middle of the wheel in the order they have been picked. The first color choice symbolizes your STRENGTH OR WEAKNESS; the second choice represents your SUBCONSCIOUS NEED; while the third choice is your TALENT and it is what you require to achieve your subconscious need.

The three chosen colors can be a liquid lipstick, liquid eyeliner or a cream eyeshadow. There are 30 products in the range and all are vegan. It’s possible to pick one of each or to pick all of the same products (for example: all eyeliners)… they don’t have to be worn all at once, but they can be used together. You will get hints and tips on how to wear the colors, as we want you to be the one applying the colors to create a look you’re happy with, and one that can be re-created at home. The colors can be worn to give a vibrant effect or blended softly. It really doesn’t matter; the power of the word will still be there—use the colors with the word in mind. You will find the thought lasts all day as you begin to truly wear the word. It’s Emotional Brilliance!
