LUSH is a win for the whole family

This first time I walked into a Lush Store, I thought I died and went to heaven. That was 12 years ago while on vacation in Banff, Canada. Although not yet a vegan, I was still smart enough to recognize something good when I found it.

LUSHlotionOver the years I’ve coveted several of their product lines. The one product that I’ve come to rely on is Sympathy for the Skin Lotion ($22.35). It is a staple in our house. Everyone from my partner Matt to the kids use this to help our skin stay soft. It is the only lotion Matt has ever used that heals his face beneath his beard.

Their shampoo Big ($21.35) is also beyond great. The salt scrubs away the dead skin, and when you are done your head and hair feel great.

Not only are their environmental practices outstanding, their products are better than any chain store bought product we have ever used.

Check out LUSH’s website for easy ordering via their store locator or order online. Though their product line is not completely vegan, as the sales of current vegan options expand, more will come in the future.

    be careful girls i have heard that some of the ingredient they used are tested on animals…

    I do want to let people know that this line uses sulfates and parabens. Plus many other ingredients I don’t think we should use in our beauty products such as talc, cocomide DEA, and propylene glycol, etc. :( I LOVE veganbeautyreview.com so much but I did want to mention that because usually I assume things on here are free of most harmful chemicals.

      Yes, it’s true their products aren’t entirely natural but they are cruelty-free and they stand for a lot of good things. Check it out: http://www.lushusa.com/shop/about/believe/
      Also, just like we vegans have tons of options as far as food goes (not everyone eats raw fruits, veggies, whole grains, etc.), we also have a slew of vegan skincare options. Vegan Beauty Review covers all types of beauty products. Some are 100% organic while other are not, but they are all vegan and cruelty-free. :)

    LUSH is the best. I’ve been using their Dream Cream to calm my weird chicken-skin arms. It works!

    Hmm, I haven’t been thrilled with the products i’ve tried thus far; I’ll have to give these a go.
