Lush


Boulder is dry. People kept telling me when I moved out West to be prepared for how dry it is out here. I used to just think of winter as long and dark. Now, I understand what a dry winter is all about. In the summer I loved the lack of humidity here but I now admit a little moisture isn't all that bad.

I've been trying to find the right moisturizer for weeks now. My face got so dry I actually had a small breakout of a rash all around my hairline. It was awful looking and hurt worse. But my friend Darren rescued me with a wonderful recommendation. He suggested I try one of moisturizers made by Lush.

Lush cosmetics are handmade and all natural. In fact on the bottom of the product where things usually say made in France or China, my little tub of moisturizer has a sticker with a smiling image that says made by Midge. The products aren't cheap. But a little goes a long way just like the customer service person told me.

Two days after picking up Lush's Skin Drink face cream the rash subsided and my face was actually soft again. I haven't tried any of their other products but must say I am intrigued by their all natural ingredient promise. For now, I'm just happy to have my face back.

I highly recommend their bubble bath bars!

Lush is amazing. I love their soaps and am completely addicted to the Flying Fox scent, found in their Godiva shampoo bars and Flying Fox products. My favorite is Coalface - it really makes my face feel clean and clears it up. Unfortunately, I'm bad at managing face wash in bar form, so I had to abandon it. Explore! It might become a problem in your life, though. Be careful.

I hate to be a Debbie Downer, but Lush products are not all natural. If you look at any of the ingredient lists, you'll see they have things like Propylene Glycol (may be toxic to the skin & is a neurotoxin), Perfume (this means it's artificial, and is petroleum-based), Parabens (act like estrogens and therefore may be able to disrupt normal hormone functioning. May be linked to breast cancer.)

Here's a good link:
