Five Reasons Lush Products Are The Best Buy!

For those of you who are unfamiliar with Lush Cosmetics, they’re a shop company that originated in Oxford created by Mark Constantine, who believes that only the freshest, fairest ingredients belong in his products. Lush Cosmetics sells everything from your basic shower necessities such as soaps, shampoos, and conditioners, to your more fun and accentuating bath and shower time products such as bath bombs, face masks, bubble bars, body butter, and shower jellies.

So if that introduction wasn’t enticing enough, here are five reasons why I always choose Lush products over their competitors:

Firstly, Lush is cruelty-free and does not test their products on animals, nor will they ever buy from a distributing company who has!

Lush believes in the purity and freshness in their products, meaning that testing on animals is not only inhumane, but simply inaccurate as to how their products will affect human skin. Lush still tests how effective their products are before they hit the shelves, but they test on consenting humans who don’t mind smelling fabulous in the process.

Secondly, Lush believes in ethical sourcing and fair trade products!

Lush is known for buying from small, independently owned farms that they agree deserve to be paid the correct amount for the work they put in. If you spent all of your time sourcing pure vanilla or going through the process of growing organic products, don’t you believe that you should be paid fairly for the work you’re doing? Well so does Lush.

Lush is also a big contributor to grassroots charities. Lush donates 100% of the proceeds made from their “Charity Pot” lotions to the charity listed on the individual lotion pot. Talk about giving and making a difference!

Thirdly, while it may seem like an odd reason to buy a product, Lush products have legitimate expiration dates. And that's a good thing.

Since Lush uses only fresh ingredients in their products, they are going to spoil just like any other fresh product, like our food, in fact Lush says that their products are “food for your skin.” If you wouldn’t eat expired food, you probably shouldn’t use an expired face mask either. The care and beauty really shows; the fresher the ingredients are in a product, the more effective they are at what they're meant to do!

Moreover, Lush has a patent on bubble bars, meaning they won’t be found anywhere else, and they are also the original creator of the infamous bath bomb (which you may be able to find at a lower quality by other bath stores, they didn't get the patent on this one)!

For those of you who don’t know what a bath bomb is, it is a starch based bath product created with food safe dyes as well as essential oils to give users not only a moisturizing and luxurious bath experience, but a colorful and fizzy one, too!

Bubble bars are a solid bubble bath; break a piece off of the bar and crumble it under running bath water to get a colorful bubble bath as well as the freshest smells ranging from citrus to rose to patchouli!

Lastly but certainly not least, Lush products make a real difference in your skin.

As stated previously, only the freshest ingredients will truly benefit your skin. Since this is a basic belief of not only Mark Constantine, but the entire Lush staff, there is always a product in the store that will work for all skin types. For example, Ultrabland facial cleanser is a beeswax based cleanser, perfect for removing makeup, with almond oil and rose water, designed to sooth the skin while adding just the right amount of moisture without being greasy. Ultrabland was designed for all skin types, perfect for a first time Lushie, and if used for one month, Ultrabland will completely rebalance your skin whether you are too dry, too oil, or have combination skin!

So if you have yet to check out a Lush store, it is definitely a must in my book! Thankfully, Lush has expanded all over the world since it’s launch in Oxford. Lush also has a spa, available in Philadelphia and NYC if in the USA, which has a wide variety of treatments ranging from facials to full body massages! So if you believe in a company with authenticity, ethical sourcing, and simply just a fun, soothing bath, I’ll see you at Lush!

TikTok was banned by the president, but Instagram is here with its newest feature called Reel. Many of us are still wondering why TikTok was being banned in the first place. Was it all the dangerous TikTok trends? It was because of a security concern, but not in the way you might think.

TikTok is owned by Dancebyte, which is a China-owned company. Basically, just like any other app, TikTok collects the user's data. The main question to ask yourself when investing in any app or marketing tools who will be owning my data? So yes, China currently owns all the TikTok user's data worldwide.

I've always been a huge Disney villain fan — whether it was for their cryptic one-liners, enviable outfits, or sidekick banter. Some of the most iconic lines from cinematic history have been said by the characters we love to hate and occasionally dress up as once a year.

The fear-mongering Gaston I now find hilariously cringe-worthy is now charming and oftentimes considered by fans as rightfully justified in his actions. Die-hard fans of the Disney villain fan club claim alternate egos in their favorite evil characters, adopting their hilarious witticisms into everyday life.

Social media is something many of us have been addicted to (whether we want to believe it or not) since the moment we got it. I remember getting Facebook at 10. Instantly I was hooked. I loved being able to share my life with people, a little too much in my opinion, and I loved being able to see how/what other people were doing all the time.

- I have extremely sensitive skin, which is why I have always resorted to a plant-based organic beauty line such as Radha Beauty.

- Radha Beauty won me over years ago when I was looking for organic skincare brands.

- I was so excited to see they launched a new line incorporating USDA organic rosehip oil, so when their PR team sent me some, I could not have been more thrilled.

- After a week of using the products, my face felt as smooth as a baby's, looked more glowy than ever, and even cured some of my summer sunburn.

Radha Beauty isn't just a best-selling beauty brand on Amazon — it's a USDA-certified organic beauty brand I live by, and anyone who knows me knows I am all about holistic wellness.

Typically, it only takes three days for me to tell if a skin product is working or not because I have extremely sensitive skin. It's also why I have always stuck by plant-based organic beauty lines such as Radha Beauty.

I have definitely had my fair share of breakups. I broke up with my high school sweetheart my second semester of college (he was cheating on me), I had a breakup with another guy I thought I was going to marry, and others in between. Regardless of whether you're the one doing the dumping or being dumped, breakups can HURT.

I am not in any way any sort of medical expert. These are just some tricks that work for me and have worked for others who also suffer from anxiety. These may not work for everyone, but I do hope these help some people in their fight against anxiety.

I have always felt left out because of how I look and who I am. I have always felt like the elephant in the room, literally. I have always been shamed for my size. For the longest time, I cared so much about what I wear and who I wore certain things in front of. I never wanted to wear shirts that would show a lot of my arm, located above my elbow. I wouldn't wear shorts that didn't go to the tip of my knees, at least. I never wore anything remotely tight, where you could see every curve, roll, or imperfection. I was so insecure about myself, and not many of my friends knew.

Your Social Activism May Actually Benefit From A Cleansing Social Media Detox

In the craziest year of our lives, sometimes there's value in taking a break.

We are living through, unequivocally, one of the most dangerous, unstable, chaotic periods of any of our lives. From COVID-19 to crises of police brutality to the mass exploitation of the poor by mega-corporations, the world outside seems to be looking more dystopic every day. What can be done about it? For many, activism involves heavily posting on social media to keep others aware. However, this comes with a net negative cost — increased levels of anxiety, depression, and hopelessness about the state of the world. Why might this be? After all, in past eras activists have endured comparable and greater levels of abuse and relentless torment from oppressors. Why, now, are people getting so easily burnt out?
