Lush

All right, Ladies. You're forever raving about those Lush products, so how 'bout some advice on where I can purchase them from the states via computer, and some tips on which of their products are universally favored. I'd like to get some for my wife.

Cheers, and thanks,

Eamon

PS: I did do a text seach, but to little avail.

Maybe not universally favored, but certainly favored by me is the bath soap called figs and leaves.

Now you have the site, perhaps we can recommend our favourite products.

For soft soft skin I love Butter Ball (bath ballistic) and also Floating Island (bath melt). Dreamtime (bath melt) is also wonderful.

Also I really like Bewitched (solid massage bar) and the figgy soap mentioned above.

Hope you find you love LUSH stuff as much as many of us Eamon!

(Even if the bath products are just for your wife, the massage bar is good for both of you and I'd recommend you give the bath products a go yourself too!)

Lush Canada has a toll free number, too!!! 1-888-733-LUSH
You must try "king of Skin" massage bar, and the solid shampoos are great for traveling (or at home!)

Lush favorites: Alkmaar soap, Trichomania solid shampoo bar, Aromarant solid deodorant bar (v. useful for traveling), Silky Underwear dusting powder, Karma dusting powder, Tramp shower gel (has an incredible "green" smell to it). All of this stuff just SMELLS so delicious!!

Watch out for this shop, it's addictive!

What a guy! I've ordered from the Canada site & it is best for mailing costs to the US. My personal fave is the Tisty Tosty bath bomb. In the shape of a heart, smells mostly like roses and 6 or 7 rosebuds are released into the bath water. No damage to a white tub. I have tried other bath bombs, and some do leave a residue and/or color behind. One releases seaweed into the bath & is a [email protected]*$%h to clean up.

Now I want to know about this Lush stuff!! I will be in Italy (Naples, Amalfi Coast) in 2 weeks...do they have it there? Because I am most certain that they probably don't have it here in Latvia! I suppose this stuff is far and away better than Bath & Body Works eh? More info on where to buy this stuff please!!! I want in on it!!

Diana, I visited a Lush shop in the Covent Garden area of London. There is a complex of shops right by the newly revamped opera house. It is in there. Much as I love some Lush products, I found the smells running together in the shop unpleasantly overpowering. Of course, it was late July and nearly 100 degrees outside!

Amy, if you visit the main Lush site on-line, you'll see a listing for their Italian website. I'm sure it would list stores in Italy & I know there's one in Milan.

Funny story about the Lush bath bomb.
We were in Covent Garden's last week and since it was my husband's birthday I thought it would be fun to give him a a nice fizzy bath on his birthday. I bought what I thought was a nice bomb and a couple of days later I dropped the lush product in his tub. He thoght it looked like a giant fizzy. Okay, so I thought that was nice and left the bathroom. When he came out he has little sparkles all over his body. I laughed and laughed and had a hard time convincing him that I really didn't know about the sparkles. They lasted for about 2 days. Thank goodness we were still on vacation and he didn't have to go to work.

Solid shampoo? That sounds wonderful for packing! Does it really work? I have long hair; is there a conditioner as well? Do you just lather it up like a bar of soap? Wow...sounds great if it works...

As you can probably tell I adore LUSH products, but just want to express a word of warning.

I bought Aromarant deodorant when it first was released.

I have never had such a painful allergic reaction to a product as I did to this one. My armpits were burning pits of hell.

I have never had any problems with any other LUSH products and have tried so many but this one didnt agree with me at all.

Infact I only wore it once but took over a week to recover.

cccdf, you've found that figgy stuff addictive too, huh?!
