THE GIRLFRIEND’S GUIDE TO LUSH COSMETICS
I am so excited for this collaboration with The Summit to introduce you to Lush Cosmetics! I have to be honest, when they reached out to me, I had never heard of this HUGE beauty company. But once I started doing my research, I fell in love! For those of you that are already huge fans, well, hopefully you enjoy the pictures I shot and discover something new from Lush. For those of you that have been living under a rock like me, consider this your official guide to Lush Cosmetics!
WHAT IS LUSH COSMETICS?
They have a HUGE cult following and are known for their handmade, fresh cosmetics. What I absolutely love about the products is that they are 100% vegetarian and are made daily in their stores. They use the freshest ingredients whenever possible, using fruit, flowers, herbs, and vegetables from local suppliers. Anther cool thing…they never test on animals and practice ethical buying, only sourcing from companies that share the same practices. Their goal is to only use ingredients that have a positive impact on the community in which they are sourced from. #love

WHAT PRODUCT LINES DOES LUSH SELL?
They sell hundreds of products for the bath, hair, shower, face, spa, makeup, you name it. Their packaging is simple, yet beautiful, and their products focus on the power of natural ingredients. The sell everything from deodorant to dry shampoo to lipstick. They also offer private parties, that include private shopping and learning how to make a bath bomb. Can you say girls’ night?!?
WHAT ARE MY FAV LUSH PRODUCTS?
There are SO SO many products they offer, so obviously I have not tried them all. However, of the ones I did try, I absolutely loved the Sea Spray Hair Mist (smells AMAZING and is perfect for styling days old hair), the Big Sea Salt Shampoo (made with sea salt, seaweed, extra virgin coconut oil, and, fresh squeezed citrus juices), the Power Red lipstick (red lips always), the Skin Tint (mix with your moisturizer for instant color) and the Mascara (made with fresh wheatgrass). If you have never used bar shampoo, you are missing out. Even Asher uses bar shampoo! His fav is Row 10’s all natural bar soap and shampoo, so check that one out as well for the kiddos. When the Summit sent me a sample of their Spicy Cinnamon and Clove Shampoo Bar to try, I was super excited. It acts as an intense thickening agent and makes your hair super soft. And that smell though!
I have not tried it yet, but my friend Mariana absolutely swears by the Eau Roma Water Toner. That will definitely be on my list to try! I have also read amazing things about the Hair Custard. Made with Argan oil, fair trade organic cocoa butter, and honey, it is great for fighting static, adding moisture, and creating shine.
