10 Reasons To Love LUSH Cosmetics
Kyla Delilah

If you've seen bath bombs that turn your bath water into a beautiful galaxy sky, they most likely came from LUSH Cosmetics. Over the last couple of years, their popularity has skyrocketed and they have gained some very happy and loyal customers, including myself. Here's why:

1. Their products are all vegetarian.

While you may not personally be vegetarian, using products that are feel awesome -- especially when it's not super obvious that they are.

2. They fight against animal testing.

It has been LUSH's personal mission to fight back against animal testing in the makeup world, and the company has even created something called "The Lush Prize" that gives away £250,000 to promote fighting against animal testing.

3. Their staff is so friendly and helpful.

Every time I've walked into the store, I've been immediately helped and never pressured into buying anything. Everyone who works there acts like they're more than happy to be there.

4. Free samples.

It's so awesome that they do this. If you're ever unsure about a product, the staff are more than happy to give you a sample.

5. Everything is handmade.

This is such a rare quality in products these days, and it's nice to see that it's still around. To know that a person (who is pictured on the product) made, shaped or hand poured your product makes you feel that much closer to the brand.

6. All of their products smell amazing.

You can definitely tell that all products are made from natural ingredients because they all smell incredible. From shampoos to facial cleansers, they will have you feel like you're walking through fields of flowers.

7. Their gift sets are perfection.

I honestly don't think I've seen any other company do gift wrapping as well as LUSH does. They have a large variety of themes for their gifts, and while some are more expensive than others, they're all absolutely adorable.

8. All products are through ethical buying.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F04%2F30%2F6359760131754491001086600367_635975519670729823579180945_Screen%2520Shot%25202016-04-29%2520at%252011.38.59%2520AM.png&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=609&h=d1d4d1c7a12abe87218a028bab000b43a954a3e0ab0f2c99e6ff39bec8846c6d&size=980x&c=657881455 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F04%252F30%252F6359760131754491001086600367_635975519670729823579180945_Screen%252520Shot%2525202016-04-29%252520at%25252011.38.59%252520AM.png%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D609%26h%3Dd1d4d1c7a12abe87218a028bab000b43a954a3e0ab0f2c99e6ff39bec8846c6d%26size%3D980x%26c%3D657881455%22%7D" expand=1 original_size="1x1"]

All of their ingredients are bought from local or small farmers, and they are all personal connections to LUSH. This is such a great thing for a company to do, because we're all about supporting anything that is local, and or a small business.

9. They do "naked" packaging.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F04%2F30%2F635976013180293064-2111228730_6359755111865258012016761044_Screen%2520Shot%25202016-04-29%2520at%252011.20.31%2520AM.png&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=543&h=f0a6dc974e3f4ebb5efdebbd1ac664bd6561a133430e2a2eb791a92b1a7ef6a9&size=980x&c=729640353 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F04%252F30%252F635976013180293064-2111228730_6359755111865258012016761044_Screen%252520Shot%2525202016-04-29%252520at%25252011.20.31%252520AM.png%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D543%26h%3Df0a6dc974e3f4ebb5efdebbd1ac664bd6561a133430e2a2eb791a92b1a7ef6a9%26size%3D980x%26c%3D729640353%22%7D" expand=1 original_size="1x1"]

They have shampoo and conditioner in bar form in order to eliminate plastic bottles that just create waste. But when they do have to use packaging for products like shower gels and gift sets, they use only 100 percent recycled materials.

10. They have products that give back.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F04%2F30%2F635976013182949230-1215336727_6359755113764389932102479409_Screen%2520Shot%25202016-04-29%2520at%252011.16.55%2520AM.png&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=245&h=87660177ad07a3d4400c466433bcd5ded8d6013b968b14351e9588aeaefb6e75&size=980x&c=825713381 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F04%252F30%252F635976013182949230-1215336727_6359755113764389932102479409_Screen%252520Shot%2525202016-04-29%252520at%25252011.16.55%252520AM.png%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D245%26h%3D87660177ad07a3d4400c466433bcd5ded8d6013b968b14351e9588aeaefb6e75%26size%3D980x%26c%3D825713381%22%7D" expand=1 original_size="1x1"]

They have a product called the "Charity Pot," which is hand and body lotion. They started this back in 2007, and since then they have supported over 850 grassroots charities, donating over $10,000,000. Pretty awesome, huh?

Leaving My Backpack In The Library

Views about society and the stranger sitting right across from me


As a college student, my backpack is an extension of myself in many ways. It contains my notes, pens, and computer vital for my success in college. It contains the snacks and water bottle I need to survive long days on campus. It also contains the "in-case" items that help put my mind at rest if I forgot something from home: extra hair ties, masks, and that backup-backup snack. With so much in my backpack important to me and my life on campus, it is no wonder that I can get apprehensive about it when it is not with me or in my line of sight. And that makes me wonder.

'Venom: Let There Be Carnage' Film Review

Tom Hardy and Woody Harrelson lead a tigher, more fun sequel to 2018's 'Venom'

Photo Credit: Sony Pictures Entertainment – YouTube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-FmWuCgJmxo

When Sony announced that Venom would be getting a stand-alone movie, outside of the Tom Holland MCU Spider-Man films, and intended to start its own separate shared universe of films, the reactions were generally not that kind. Even if Tom Hardy was going to take on the role, why would you take Venom, so intrinsically connected to Spider-Man's comic book roots, and remove all of that for cheap action spectacle?
