6 Lush Products I Swear By

Lush Fresh Handmade Cosmetics never disappoints. Here are a few products that I can't live without!


Lush Fresh Handmade Cosmetics never disappoints. Founded in the U.K., this company stands true to their philosophy of producing cosmetic products made of the "freshest ingredients, not tested on animals and sold fresh to customers". From a small shop in Poole, to over 250 locations across North America, Lush has continued to be a cult-favorite. From holiday themed products, to colorful bath bombs, and products that solve everyday skincare and body needs, Lush goes above and beyond to not only meet consumer needs, but exceed their expectations.

Here are a few Lush products that I can't live without:

1. Grease Lightning

AmazonGrease Lightning


If you have not yet discovered the countless benefits of introducing aloe and tree tea oil into your regular skincare regimen, thank me later. This gel is a holy grail skincare product for me, especially when pesky breakouts arise. I cannot tell you how many times I've used and repurchased this product due to it's magical properties. Grease Lightning is a light-weight gel with ingredients like aloe, tree tea, thyme, rosemary, grape juice, and lavender oil to cleanse and clear out any dirt beneath the surface of your skin. This is great to put on irritated, problem areas, hormonal breakouts, etc. It is great for those who have acne-prone or sensitive skin. This calming and refreshing gel clears pores and gets rid of impurities faster than most.

Retail Price: $15.95 (1.5 oz.)

2. Catastrophe Cosmetic Fresh Face Mask

The Sunday GirlCatastrophe Cosmetic


For years now, I have only purchased face masks from Lush. If you're looking for something natural and packed with nutrients, you've found it. Lush has a wide range of face masks, some fresh and others that don't have to be preserved in a refrigerator. All of which are great! This one in particular is my favorite. Catastrophe Cosmetic, referred to as the "blueberry-packed balancer", is a face mask I have repurchased on many occasions and will continue to for various reasons. It's fresh ingredients include fresh blueberries, calamine powder, almond oil, rose absolute, and chamomile blue oil. This is the perfect mask to balance and calm skin, while also getting a great cleanse. It is great for calming redness and irritation on the skin, plus it smells AMAZING. Obviously selecting a face mask is extremely dependent on your skin type, so choose one that fits your needs. Others I would recommend and have tried on various occasions are Mask of Magnaminty, BB Seaweed, Cosmetic Warrior, and Rosy Cheeks. All Lush face masks have their own unique healing properties so do your research!

Retail Price: $9.95 (2.1 oz.)

3. Roots Hair Treatment

Roots Hair Treatment


If you have fine, thin, or damaged hair and are looking for a hair mask or leave-in treatment to bring your hair back to life, this is it! This hair treatment contains fresh ingredients like peppermint oil, spearmint oil, honey, grapefruit oil, and extra virgin olive oil. While this leave-in hair treatment has softening and deep conditioning properties, it also has a cooling sensation as well. It leaves hair feeling sleek, shiny, and extra soft.

Retail Price: $22.95 (7.9 oz.), $32.95 (15.5 oz.)

4. Ocean Salt

Westfield AUOcean Salt


In need of a good exfoliator? This face and body scrub is now offered in a fresh and self-preserving version. Both are equally effective and amazing, even for sensitive skin like my own. Opt for the self-preserving version of Ocean Salt if you're wanting a gentler scrub. This scrub contains ingredients such as sea salt, grapefruit, limes extracted in vodka, lime oil, coconut oil, and avocado butter that not only help to remove dead skin, but brighten, tone, hydrate, and soften skin at the same time.

Fresh, Retail Price: $21.95 (4.2 oz.), $37.95 (8.8 oz.), $49.95 (21.8 oz.)

Self-Preserving, Retail Price: $21.95 (4.2 oz.), $37.95 (8.8 oz.)

5. Charity Pot Body Lotion

BustleCharity Pot


This Lush body lotion is a popular one for a multitude of reasons. Made with ingredients such as Moringa Oil, Cocoa Butter, Shea Butter, Jojoba Oil, and Vanilla this lotion can be referred to as the "philanthropic skin softener". It is soothing, hydrating, and 100% of the proceeds go to "small grassroots organizations working in the areas of human rights, animal protection and environmental justice". In my experience, this is a wonderful lotion to purchase during the winter months to quench extra-dry skin, plus it goes to a charitable cause! Can you really go wrong?

Retail Price: $7.95 (1.7 oz.), $27.95 (8.4 oz.)

6. Twilight Bath Bomb

Lush USATwilight


"Recreate the magic of a dreamy, starry night in your tub with our most relaxing bath bomb yet."

This bath bomb smells just as beautiful as it looks in your bathtub. This product is vegan and self-preserving. Containing soothing ingredients of lavender oil, tonka, and ylang ylang oil, this bath is one that will leave you de-stressed and ready for a peaceful slumber. Butterball and Sex Bomb are two bath bombs that are also staples of mine.

Retail Price: $6.95 (6.3 oz.)

Hopefully this article has not only educated, but inspired you to take a trip to Lush and try some products for yourself. Any of these make great additions to your regular skincare routine, or incorporated as an act of self care when you feel like you need a pick-me-up.

Life is short, treat yourself!

13 Father's Day Shirts Under $30 To Gift The Dad Wearing The Same Two Every Day In Quarantine

You've been begging him to change it up, and now he won't have a choice.

Let's be honest: most of our dads are wearing the same shirts today that they probably wore while changing our diapers and holding our hands as we learned to walk. Sure, we love them for it. But whether you're quarantined with him wearing the same two shirts on rotation every week, or every time you FaceTime him, you know what he'll be wearing before he answers the phone, he needs to add some new items to his wardrobe rotation.

And you know dads — they'll feel guilted into using practically anything you were to give them. But these shirts are sure-fire ways to get him to switch up his wardrobe, and he'll be more than excited to wear each and every one of them. Plus, most of them are under twenty dollars, so no harm in dropping more than a couple in to your cart and letting Dad have his pick of his favorites.

I Sat Down (Virtually) With Hollis Tuttle To Talk About Coronavirus's Impact On The Wellness Industry

Just because coronavirus has greatly impacted the wellness industry doesn't mean wellness stops.

If you're anything like me, your weekly fitness classes are a huge part of your routine. They keep me fit, healthy, and sane. Honestly, these classes help my mental health stay in tip-top shape just as much as they help my physical health.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, gyms and fitness studios are facing temporary closure. Yes, this means my personal routine is thrown a curveball, but this also means the wellness industry is one of many that is looking at unemployment and hardship. Do I miss my Monday spin class? Of course. But do the wellness professionals whose worlds were flipped upside down have a lot more to overcome than a slight change of routine? Absolutely. Thankfully, if anyone can prove the ultimate flexibility, it's the wellness industry.

My Boyfriend Has Changed Since Quarantine Began, And I Don't Know What To Do

"All he says is 'I love you,' which is great and all but OMG I can't get anything else out of him."

Each week Swoonie B will give her advice on anonymous topics submitted by readers. Want to Ask Swoonie B something related to dating and relationships? Fill out this form here — it's anonymous.

Dear Swoonie B,

My boyfriend and I have been dating for almost a year, which has been the best year of my life (as far as i know). Well we go to different schools and are both very involved in sports and school activities which makes it hard to see each other. During this quarantine it is especially hard. Since we haven't seen each other in over a week things are kind of tense. He won't really talk to me much and I always check in on him to make sure he is doing well and to just see how he is, ya know being a girlfriend. Well apparently that is driving him crazy and I don't understand how. I'm not being controling or clingy, i'm just checking in on him. While this is happening, I also have noticed how he just doesn't really care anymore. I'll leave him paragraphs of sweet love letters to wake up to and I encourage him throughout his day but I just don't get it in return. I love him with all of me and I obviously care about him a lot. Also, I've compared how he talked to me before all of this has happened. He was so sweet and caring, texting me a lot and telling me he loves me and just making sure everything is OK but he doesn't do that anymore. All he says is "I love you," which is great and all but OMG I can't get anything else out of him. He is a little stressed at home with trying to find another job to pay for his car, constantly having to do things for his mom, being responsible for his siblings, and managing school. I know thats a lot but im doing a lot too right now and going through a lot of the same stuff he is but It seems to me he just does not care and i don't know what to do. Please help me or give me some advice on what to say, what not to say, what to do, what not to do. Anything at this point will help. Thank you!

If I had a dollar for every time I heard "these are unprecedented times," I'd be rich. But that's because it's true!

Tower 28

On paper, Amy Liu appears to be one of the most intimidating women in the beauty business. Not only did she launch her beauty marketing career at legendary Smashbox Cosmetics, she went on to lead luxury, high-end brands like Kate Somerville and Josie Maran — just to name a few.

But sitting down to meet Liu for the first time in an underground New York bar over a year ago felt like meeting a friend I'd known since childhood. As she walked into the bar in a chic red dress, it was impossible not to feel her immediate warm presence. When she talks about her history as an entrepreneur (and truly, at heart, she always was one), you don't get the sense that she's selling you anything, though with her impeccable taste, I'd use anything that had her glowing review attached to it.

Sixth grade was the year that you were allowed to participate in a school sport. This was what my friends and I had all been waiting for since we started middle school. I had already made the cheer team with my friends, but I had to wait to start that in the winter since we cheered for basketball. I really wanted to have some sort of activity in the fall, but I did not know what to do. Somehow, I decided to run cross country. Not really sure how I decided on a sport where it was quite literally just running. A few of my friends were doing it as well, so I knew it was going to be fun.

Working Out Every Day During Quarantine Helps Me Feel A Sense Of Control

Physical activity helps my mental health in a world that feels uncertain.

Before the pandemic, I exercised a handful of times a week at best. In quarantine, I've been exercising every single day. I don't want this article to be another spiel about how exercise "changed my life," and all the other cliches that health gurus use to convince others to work out more. Rather, I want to reveal that exercise is a tool that works for me because it boosts my mental health when I feel like the world is spiraling out of control.

To say that 2020 has been a bit of a roller coaster is an extreme understatement. Who knew that this decade was going to start off like THIS!? Not me, not you, and not that sweet old lady who lives down the street. One thing is certain though — while the world may be a mess right now, you can still fuel your body with food that keeps you happy and healthy. Thankfully, as we are all spending more time inside, you can get healthy snacks delivered straight to your front door! Amazon has never been more convenient (and tasty).
