New Posts Mondays!
New here? Start here...
I know, I know, it's been awhile right? Life's been really beating me up lately but I'm back and trying to provide something nice for us all this week.
By way of LUSH Fresh Handmade Products. My friend Sadie recommended this store to me ages ago and I have just recently gotten into a store in our nearby large city of Tampa, FL. I was in one of our uber fancy shmancy malls and turned a corner with my husband and I saw it...

My poor husband blinked and I was gone before he could even finish saying "Wanna split a Cinnabon?"
I had a blast going through that little store just picking the brains of the girls in there (who were pretty knowledgeable and you could tell they didn't just show up for a paycheck, they were all avid "LUSH Heads" as well) and I came home with bath bombs, soap bars, and body butters for me and the kiddies. Now although they are handmade and fresh and many of them smell sooooo good you would want to eat them, some of the products contain not so friendly chemicals (we all know by now you can't always avoid ALL the chemicals unfortunately) but if you search you can find many gems in there.
The bombs smell absolutely wonderful and they are fun for the kids. You throw them in the bath and they fizz and disappear and your kids are like "What??? I'm scared but curious...hmm"
and they leave your skin velvety smooth. I also got a body butter bar that is just tons of great oils that leave your skin soft and exfoliated. It has ground rice and beans to give you that scrub.
Now if you hit up the website, I've got no info for you on that because I bought all my stuff in-store, sorry. And the online prices might be a bit much - or they might not (you say recession, I say ignorance is bliss ;oP). But when purchasing in-store they had such a nice benefit of you being able to tell them "Well, of this huge chunk of soap (because they lay it all out like a loaf of bread or bricks), I only want to purchase $5 dollars worth of this, and $3 dollars worth of that to try it out" and the girls bring it to the weighing counter, weigh it out, chop it down to size, and hand wrap it right there. Voila! Wonderful right? I loved that! I couldn't find the soap I bought online, but it is the best thing since sliced bread....or indoor plumbing! Let's just say that if the sun had a scent to wake us up in the morning, it would be in the form of this soap. Get to a store, look for a giant (or not so giant depending on how much they sold that day) yellow circle that smells like citrusy sunshine and summer all in one. Buy it! Thank me by sending me chocolate! :o)

So try LUSH today and tell me how you like it, love it, or hate it. Although I seriously doubt anyone would hate it. And if you do, chances are you probably are the same person that pushes the elderly and makes faces at babies too, right? ;oP
