I’ve been hearing a lot of “buzz” about the benefits of honey in beauty products lately, and at Lush it isn’t a new trendy ingredient by any means, they’ve been using it for years and wouldn’t be able to make some of their best sellers without it. They’ve recently teamed up with HoneyLove to help save the bees and you too can help by purchasing these bee-utiful products that not only have moisturizing and antiseptic properties, but they smell pretty yummy too. LUSH and HoneyLove Spread Buzz For The Bees!
Lush It’s Raining Men Shower Gelis a silky, golden colour gel that’s packed with honey, lotus flowers, tiger lily and orange blossom that gives it a strong, but not overpowering toffee-fudge scent that’s sweet and rich. It has a perfect consistency, not too thin or runny, but not overly thick, that comes to a nice lather on the skin and a little goes a long way. You’re instantly left with hints of honey and flowers that intensify as you rub it into the skin. My skin felt smooth and very moisturized after use and is definitely a scent that carries throughout the day; a delicious and decadent treat for the skin. It retails for $9.95 to $28.95.
Lush Honey Bee Bath Bomb looks like a bee with its yellow and darker yellow tone to it and is the biggest bath bomb I’ve tried from Lush to date; it’s huge. Although it is quite large, its fizzes and dissolves quickly into the bath water (within 2 minutes depending on how hot the water is) and leaves the water a beautiful Amber colour that doesn’t stain the tub like other bombs I’ve tried. It has the same yummy scent as It’s Raining Men Shower Gel, a mix of honey and toffee with a zesty citrus scent of sweet orange oil. The Moroccan Rhassoul mud helps to deeply cleanse, soften and moisturizes the skin, the Aloe Vera turns your bath water silky soft while the Honey creates a calming and soothing effect on the skin. Although these are a onetime use only product, it’s totally worth the $6.45 price tag as a treat every once in a while.
Lush Fair Trade Honey Shampoo is perfect for almost everyone and over half of this shampoo consist of Fair Trade honey, providing it with extra hydration, shine and luster. Since honey is all natural you can feel good knowing this shampoo is preservative free. It also features linseed mucilage, neroil and bergamot oil providing extra moisture to dry, damaged hair. It has a thick, creamy texture to it that goes a long way, only a dime size amount is needed to cleanse the hair of dirt, oil and buildup. It gives a nice warm rich honey scent to the hair that is left feeling fresh, clean and beautifully soft. It retails for $9.95 to $29.95.
Lush Honey Trap Lip Balm Honey Trap smells like white chocolate with hints of honey that features sweet orange and cooling peppermint to help soothe dry, chapped lips. It has a whipped, buttery soft formula that feels incredibly smooth on both your fingers and lips. It melts into the lips immediately thanks to its rich ingredients like shea butter and almond oil that keeps the lips moisturized and hydrated all day long. This balm is now at the top of my list for lip treatments and it retails for $7.25.
