Inspired by our best-selling Twilight Bath Bomb, our iridescent purple body wash has the same comforting lavender and sweet tonka fragrance that has fast become a can’t-live-without LUSH scent. Lather up in a hot shower before bed and you’ll be ready to drift off to dreamland."

LUSH shower gels are made with fresh, natural ingredients, with very little water. A little product will go a long way! Lathering is key. Also works very well as a shampoo. 
This product smells amazing. One of our favorite LUSH scents so far - so relaxing and it is a nice deep fragrance- perfect as the weather is cooling down and heading towards winter. Stock up because it is only available for the holidays!

Rosebud Brambleberry Rose Lip Balm

"A blend of wild berry flavors withovertones of honey and vanilla.This emollient lip and body balmevokes the memory of a freshlybaked berry pie. The lovely tin is graced with the likeness of “missVivian” current president of rosebudperfume company. Our fanslike brambleberry Rose forchapped lips and dry skin. (Each is 0.8 oz)"

For those that use or have tried Smith's Rosebud Salve, you know how well this works! The difference between the original and Brambleberry Rose Lip Balm is that the Brambleberry has a sweeter scent and a pink / berry tint which is very natural.

This balm works great for dry chapped lips. Very soothing and makes lips feel smooth. After a couple of days lips will be restored! Good value and will last a long time. The balm has a silky consistancy and does not leave your lips sticky. The smell is great- a raspberry-blueberry type smell, but it is not overly sweet.

Also great for cuticles, elbows, even as mascara, and taming eyebrows.
