Introducing the Limited Edition Halloween Collection from Lush Cosmetics

We all know what huge LUSH fans you are! So we wanted to let you know about their Limited Edition Halloween Collection! Stop by a store before these are sold out ;)

The new range is available exclusively at Lush Fresh Handmade Cosmetics stores nationwide and online at lushusa.com beginning October 1st, 2015

We love these two products from the latest line.

"A feast for the senses! Get down and earthy with this mischievous, herbal blend of patchouli, peppercorn and black pepper with an intriguing fair trade vanilla sweetness. As you rub this addictive lather all over the body, organic wheatgerm oil provides a nourishing dose of vitamin E to ensure your skin is in fine (and fragrant) party form. You won't be the fool after washing with this." ($9.94-$21.95)
We love how a little goes a long way! Works well into a very rich and creamy lather. It cleans well without your skin feeling harsh or dry. Plus, it smells great! 


"A fang-tastically fruity jelly to put the bite back into bathtime. When the dark night rises, seek the fruity candy-scented salvation of this aloe vera and lime juice jelly and cover yourself in a sweet, carrageenan lather. For an extra stimulating hit, use it fresh from the fridge or freezer. A hint of vitamin E-rich carob syrup delivers extra nourishment to the body and adds to that deliciously fruity perfume." ($6.95)
We love how delicious this product smells! A very cute product, that fits the festive occasion. 

We love LUSH and are always amazed by the new products that come out in stores. Did you know they have a spa as well? If you're ever planning on going to New York or Philadelphia see if you can book a treatment.

Topganic Brazilian Nut Oil Shampoo + Conditioner

If memory and smell are intertwined, the Topganic Brazilian Nut Oil Collection will make you unforgettable. Formulated with a boosted combination of enriched Brazil nuts, hydrating and deep nourishing shea butter, avocado oil and Topganic’s proprietary keratin protein, the aromatic products add life to hair, and leave a lingering impression. Topganic’s distinct keratin component works to repair the quality of hair, while imparting a protective coating that lasts between washes. The keratin coating ensures hair reverts back to shiny, bouncy, and silky soft, every time. 

Shampoo with Keratin from Brazil ($9)
The Brazilian Nut Shampoo is sodium chloride free, paraben-free, SLE and SLES free. Perfect for hair that has undergone any type of chemical treatment including straightening and curling. The active ingredients gently cleanse, remove build up and dirt without upsetting the hair balance or striping away its moisture.
Formulated with Avocado Oil, Brazilian Nut Seed Oil, Borage Seed Oil, Shea Butter and Hydrolyzed Keratin

Conditioner  with Keratin from Brazil ($9)
The Brazilian Nut Conditioner is sodium free, paraben-free, SLES free and extra moisturizing. The active ingredients seal in moisture and protect fragile, damaged hair.

Formulated with Shea Butter, Brazilian Nut Seed Oil, Sesame Seed Oil, Cocoa Seed Butter, Coconut Oil and Hydrolyzed Keratin

Brazil Nut Oil restores hair and scalp health when you use this shampoo & conditioner for dry and ultra dry locks. Designed specifically to fortify your hair, treat dry scalp, and help with hair thinning. Brazil Nuts and Zinc maintain hair scalp and improve hair shedding, while Keratin naturally improves hair strength and overall health. Vitamin E nourishes, and Shea Butter & Avocado soften. You'll feel like you have healthier hair (stronger + improved scalp health). These products also smell intoxicatingly fresh and sweet, even after your hair is dry! We love that they are free of sodium chloride, parabens, and other harmful ingredients. Leaves your hair feeling light and silky.

For even softer results, we recommend using a hair mask once a week before shampooing and conditioning. Jojoba oil as a leave- in treatment is amazing. Just apply some of it (you can mix it in with essential oils as an option) to your scalp and hair before washing your hair. Leave it in for 20-30 minutes and then wash it out. You may need to shampoo twice, or more diligently as the oil takes some time to get out.

September 2015 Must-Have: LUSH BIG Sea Salt Shampoo


Big Shampoo ($27.95)
Get a boost of volume and shine with sea salt and lime.
Over half the base of Big shampoo is made with sea salt, giving massive volume to hair in need of a boost. Sea salt is also full of minerals and de-greases hair, removing dead skin cells and dirt without stripping natural oils for a fresh, squeaky clean feeling. We balance the sea salt with seaweed infusion, extra virgin coconut oil and avocado butter for soft, nourished locks. Finally, fresh citrus juices are squeezed in for incredible shine. It's no wonder this one is a best-seller!

We love this shampoo and will be using it as the weather cools down, and skin begins to feel more dry. The scent is delicious, the texture is amazing, and the product really exfoliates the dead skin on your scalp. Unlike most shampoos that are liquid or solid, this one is a mixture of both as it contains sea salt, and hydrating ingredients like coconut oil and avocado butter. As a result, your hair is left with great volume and shine. It makes the perfect clarifying and boosting shampoo all year round! We highly recommend you give it a try and to visit a LUSH store near you.
