Sparkle With LUSH!


It’s finally that time of year, when the parties are endless, love is all around and happiness spreads like dandelions as we fill with holiday cheer!

Put on your best party suit and a bit of festive facial glam with Lush’s shimmering makeup range, and you’ll be sure to shine all season long.

Liquid Eyeliner

LUSH liquid eyeliners are vegan and made with two different types of base – Independent and Fantasy. These have a no-smudge, stay-put formula so your makeup will be party-proof all night long!

Cream Eyeshadow

The cupuaçu butter in the eyeshadows helps to set the color pigment nicely, so they offer beautiful color which doesn’t set straight away, giving you plenty of time to blend and get your look just right.

 

Liquid Lipstick

Lush’s liquid lipsticks have a super softening base, which is a simple blend of organic jojoba oil, candelia wax and rose wax. As well as being intensely skin-softening and soothing, the base also carries pigment incredibly well, so your lips will stay fabulous throughout the night.

You can check all their collection in all their branches or even order online.

All New Self-Preserving Products from LUSH


Lush has always used natural preservatives like salt, honey and clay to keep its products fresh for longer. As a result, more than 70% of its range is entirely self-preserving – something not many other cosmetic companies could claim.

 

But that wasn’t enough, Lush has come up with an innovative way to re-balance its formulations, which means that the artificial preservatives can be removed from some of the products 
that you know and love, all without significantly altering the look, the feel, the price, or reducing the shelf life, and always with the freshest ingredients.

 

The original preserved versions will continue to be stocked, but Mask of Magnaminty, Ocean Salt, Dream Cream and Sympathy for the Skin are now available in self- preserving formulas – with lots more to come!

 

Mask of Magnaminty Self-Preserving

A multi-purpose mask with a mixture of gentle yet effective ingredients to clean, calm and clear the skin – now in a self-preserving formula.

Easily smoothed over the skin anywhere you like, this mask is made with peppermint oil to stimulate, marigold oil and chlorophyllin to treat the skin; evening primrose seeds and aduki beans to gently exfoliate as you remove it. There’s also mineral rich kaolin to nourish, antibacterial honey, and peppermint oil to stimulate the blood cells just under the surface of your skin to leave it looking bright and refreshed.

 

Ocean Salt Self-Preserving

Cleansing lime, coconut and sea salt scrub. Ocean Salt is like taking your face on a trip to the seaside for an invigorating splash in the water, then cleansing and refreshing it with lemon, grapefruit and lime juices. Fresh avocado moisturises and softens the skin, while violet leaf absolute calms and nurtures. Use it on oily skin every day and use it to refresh dry skin once a week.

 

Dream Cream Self-Preserving

A soothing and all-round dreamy hand and body lotion that’s suitable for everyone – now in a self-preserving formula.

This simple cream works like a dream on upset skin: cooling and soothing ingredients like oat milk, rose-water and chamomile blue oil calm down hot and itchy skin, as well as a  blend of essential oils help to nurture skin: redness-reducing rose absolute, anti-inflammatory chamomile blue, antibacterial and antiseptic tea tree and conditioning lavender.

Lush Hair Care


 

From silky hair conditioners to beautiful balms, Lush’s collection of hair products are designed to leave your hair looking shiny, healthy, and happy. Shake off the dull this summer and treat yourself to a range of fabulous hair products from Lush. All hair products are made using natural and organic ingredients so you can feel confident there is no harm done to your precious locks.

American Cream

lush1

Bring all the boys to the yard with this strawberry vanilla milkshake conditioner. A beautiful fruit and vanilla conditioner that really does the job – a dreamy, medium strength conditioner for soft, shiny, fragrant locks. This is a thick heavy conditioner, but won’t leave the hair weighted down or heavy. Its combination of honey, strawberries, and fresh orange juice in a thick lanolin conditioner base, will make the hair soft, manageable and easy to comb.

Big

lush2

Have a big hair day. This is like having your hair lifted on a sea breeze. We love salt on the hair because it’s great for giving volume. We experimented with it for a very long time before coming up with this, our ultimate salt shampoo. Sea salt is also full of minerals and de-greases hair, removing dead skin cells and dirt without stripping natural oils for a fresh, squeaky clean feeling. We balance the sea salt with seaweed infusion, extra virgin coconut oil and avocado butter for soft, nourished locks. Finally, fresh citrus juices are squeezed in for incredible shine.

Rehab

lush3

If you don’t have any prior engagements, then why not spend a night in putting your hair into rehab? Hairspray, bleach, colors, styling products, ill-health; these are all things that can really take a toll on your hair and leave it far away from its natural best. Rehab is about bringing your hair and scalp back to basics and repairing it with an array of lovely ingredients. A blend of fresh citrus juices clarify hair and scalp with active enzymes, while herbs work their magic on tired scalps. It doesn’t take long for this shampoo to restore your hair’s vitality!

Shine So Bright

lush4

A beautiful balm to prevent split ends and help hair shine so bright. Extra virgin coconut and olive oils, shea butter and fresh free range eggs nourish and improve the tensile strength of hair to prevent and mend split ends. It works wonderfully as a finishing product as well, taming fly-aways and keeping hair in place for a flawless look. Add to that an orange flower, grapefruit, neroli and rosewood perfume and you won’t want to leave home without this!

New

lush5

Spice up your hair! Give it new life. When stress or life goes to your head and your hair starts thinning, motivate those tired scalps with spice and mint oils. It’s intense, but works wonders on irritated scalps or hair that’s thinning. Healthy hair needs a healthy scalp as its foundation. New Shampoo bar has two tasks; to give amazing shine and stimulate hair follicles to maximize growth. Nettle and peppermint infusions give shine to the hair. Rosemary and nettle absolutes are included to protect, soothe and clear the scalp and also give shine.

Retread 

lush6

Drive your hair in for some serious breakdown recovery. This is a pit stop for your hair. Just like tyres, the outer layer of your hair shaft gets worn and damaged. Retread is full of ingredients to fuel your hair up again and get it back out on the road. A super-smoothing conditioning cream that gives sad hair its shine and bounce back. We make a seaweed and lanolin base and then add soya milk for protein. Added to that are olive, jojoba and avocado oils to give a deep condition. Nutritious fresh melon juice and yogurt are then stirred through.

Roots

lush7

Thine be the glory – Don’t despair, we’ve got a treatment for thin and fine hair. The route to mighty fine hair. Fine hair needs careful looking after. This treatment is packed full of ingredients to revitalize from root to tip. You’ll feel the tingling and cooling sensations of fresh mint infusion and minty oils (peppermint and spearmint) as they go to work revitalizing the scalp, because healthy hair starts at the roots! Extra virgin olive oil and honey soften and condition hair to make it shine without weighing it down. Give dull, fine and thin hair volume and shine by treating it with Roots.

Egg-ceptional Easter collection from LUSH!


 

Instead of giving family and friends over-packaged, calorific chocolate eggs this year, treat them to a tasty selection of Lush’s new bath products especially for Easter … much kinder to the waistline and the environment, as Lush bath bombs, bubble bars and soaps are solid which means they are preservative free and packaging free.  And to top it all off, Lush don’t test on animals either, preferring instead to dedicate products to bunnies as opposed to testing on them.

 

NEW Golden Egg bath melt ballistic 

golden egg_

A brand new invention, this egg is a bath bomb coated in bath melt mixture.  It will unexpectedly sink to the bottom of the bathtub while the outer layer dissolves, popping to the surface as the fizzing center is revealed.  The outer bath melt mix is made using our beautiful fair trade, organic, Colombian Peace Village cocoa butter and olive oil from a brand new permaculture project we’re working with in Palestine. Scented with the best-selling Honey I Washed the Kids fragrance, it’s coated with PET free golden luster. 

 

Inspired by chocolate cream eggs, we reverse it and coated the hard bath bomb center with a creamy bath melt shell. 

 

NEW Bunny bubble bar 

whitebunny

 

A cute little bubble bar shaped like a white rabbit, made with a brand new formula.  This one has a similar mix to a bubbleroon, with shea butter and coconut oil, but cornstarch is added to the mix to limit the ‘dough rising’ effect of our other bubble bars.  This means you get a more condensed bar that can be broken in half and used over two baths.  Or you can use the whole things for masses of softening Creamy Candy scented bubbles.  Inspired by the white rabbit in Alice in Wonderland, this sweet little fellow has a pink tummy containing little cornstarch flowers to float in your bath water.

 

NEW Carrot soap 

big carrot soap

 

A spectacular carrot-shaped soap with a bunny hiding in every slice!  The orange part is made with carrot oil to moisturize; while the white bunny inside is made with cocoa butter to soften.  The fragrance smells nothing like carrots however, as we’ve used fruity essential oils such as buchu, lemon and bergamot to really make your mouth water. 

 

Brightside bubble bar 

brightside

 

Back this year and this time to stay, as it joins our all year round range after Easter!  A bright and cheerful swirl of a bubble bar to give you a fresh and cheerful perspective.  Scented with a trio of uplifting and invigorating oils, there’s: Sicilian mandarin, tangerine and bergamot oil and just a squeeze of lemon.  All are energizing and also incredibly toning oils that will lift the spirits and clear the mind.  Crumble under the running taps and watch as the water turns into a hazy red and orange sunset with frothy white clouds of bubbles.  

 

The Immaculate Eggception bath bomb 

bathbomb

One of Lush’s innovative double-layered bath ballistics, these are hollow eggs with a surprise inside … crack the outer layer bubble bar and ballistic mix to reveal either a mini chick or bunny ballistic inside!  You can then throw the outer eggshell and its inhabitant into the bathtub and enjoy a vanilla absolute, lemon and grapefruit scented soak.  There are two colors to choose from, the yellow egg with green decoration contains the bunny; while the pink egg with yellow or blue decoration contains the chick.  They both make for a cracking great bath!  

This one can be used all at once, or each bit used for separate baths – so one could last you three baths!

Mother’s Day with LUSH


Just like every occasion, LUSH has a special collection for Mother’s day, full of smells right from the garden 🙂

Check them out…

Rose bubble bar … Sweet and uplifting

rose-single

 

This beautifully crafted bubble bar will instantly transform mum’s bath time experience into a rose filled voyage through a mountain of skin softening bubbles.  Rose hip oil and cocoa butter grated into the mixture provide the softening properties; while rose and lemon provide the fragrance.

 

This bubble bar has a brand new formula … cornstarch has been added to the mix to limit the rising effect of our other bubble bars.  This means you get a more condensed bar that can be broken in half and used over two baths.  Or you can use the whole things for masses of creamy, softening bubbles.

 

Inhale Exhale bath bomb … Intensely soothing 

 

bomb

 

A new bath bomb with two halves – each lightly scented with one half of the two-part Gorilla Perfume fragrance, Breath of God. The Inhale half fizzes quickly, allowing mum to breathe in the light and fruity neroli and rose to relax.  She can then lie back, breathe out and enjoy the grounding effect of the Exhale fragrance, with notes of smoky cedar wood and revitalizing lemon and grapefruit.  This half fizzes more slowly to give mum an even longer lasting soak.

 

Wonder Woohoo bubble bar … Recharge and rejuvenate

sparkle

 

Inspired by Wonder Woman and created for wonder women! Mums can channel their inner superhero when using this bubble bar, covered in gold sparkle to replicate Wonder Woman’s gold tiara!

 

Packed full of sandalwood and Brazilian orange oil from our best-selling Gorilla Perfume, The Sun, Wonder Woohoo is ideal for overworked super mums in need of a little time to recharge and rejuvenate.

 

These products are available in all Lush stores in Beirut Souks and ABC Dbayeh. For shop details and mail order, go to www.lushlebanon.com

 

Happy Mother’s Day!

 

Valentine’s Day with Lush!


Get in the mood for love with this collection of new LUSH creations especially for Valentine’s Day!

This year sees a fun and quirky take on Valentine’s Day, with inspiration ranging from romantic love songs written in neon and Adam and the Ants, to Tom Cruise’s Hawaiian shirt in Cocktail!

We wanted to make our Valentine’s collection sharable, or just last longer for one, so we’ve made the products bigger than ever, but still lovingly made by hand with the same high quality ingredients and essential oils.

Love Locket bath bomb

IMG_1523

The Love Locket was inspired by the kind of heart-shaped locket you wear as a necklace, perhaps with a secret photograph of a loved one inside. Like any love locket, you need to unlock the bath bomb to reveal the secret hidden within.  Crack your locket in half, to unveil the hidden heart in the center.

The outside of the locket is full of paper hearts that will float out onto the surface of the water, while the hidden heart inside is laden with agar hearts to create a spectacular bath time display.  Use each half and the inner heart individually (so three baths in total), or throw it all in the bath tub at once for a really decadent bath, enough to get any heart aflutter.  The brand new fragrance is made from some of our most luxurious essential oils: Fairtrade vanilla absolute, neroli oil and jasmine absolute are blended to create a sweet, sensual and uplifting indulgent bath time.

 

Neon Love soap

IMG_1524

 

Inspired by 12 Months of Neon Love, a collaboration between artists Victoria Lucas and Richard William Wheater, beginning on Valentine’s Day 2011 and ending on Valentine’s Day 2012. The art featured lyrics from well-known love songs, in huge neon writing!

This huge heart-shaped soap, emblazoned with the word ‘Love’, is scented with a brand new fragrance of bergamot, rosewood and cinnamon leaf oil and packed full of fresh ingredients, such as fresh figs, passion fruit juice and soya yogurt to nourish and soften the skin.  Hiding inside are plenty of little white hearts to ensure every slice looks as beautiful and romantic as it smells.

Close To You massage bar

IMG_1522

This smooshable massage bar was inspired by the humble jammy dodger. As you peek through the heart-shaped hole on top of the bar you can see into the sumptuous white fondant center.

Made with a luxurious blend of butters and oils, including cupuaçu butter, Shea butter and olive oil, this rich bar shares the same delicious vanilla fragrance as in Rock Star soap and Creamy Candy bubble bar. Guaranteed to bring someone special Close to You!

Prince Charming shower gel

IMG_1525

 

A shower gel made for princesses and for anyone who needs a Prince Charming in their life! This sweet-scented, neon pink shower gel is fit for royalty.

Marshmallow root and Fair Trade vanilla pod decoction forms the base, giving a very soothing experience, boosted by nourishing almond oil and cleansing, cooling and astringent fresh pomegranate juice.  Prince Charming has a new fragrance of organic sandalwood, geranium and grapefruit essential oils to sweep you off your feet and leave you skin silky soft and smelling lovely.

 

I’m amazed each time I pass by their stores, there’s always a new product to discover, to smell…

So if you’re wondering what to get your loved one this Valentine’s, you have to check LUSH’s products and the cutest gift boxes, that are available in all Lush stores in Beirut Souks and ABC Dbayeh, and if you don’t feel like hitting the Mall, you can now shop online through  www.lushlebanon.com 🙂

 

LUSH – Winter Collection


Christmas is getting closer and closer… But it was here at LUSH since October!

They have a lot of new lovely items just for Christmas…

Bath Ballistics

IMG_7984

This Christmas, instead of glitter we have added popping candy, edible lusters and agar jelly stars and shapes for spectacular bathing. Simply drop into a ready run, warm bath and watch as it fizzes around the tub with abandonment, emitting its goodness into the water.

 

Bubble Bars

IMG_7978

bubble bars are a solid alternative to bubble bath that are unpreserved and packaging free.  Using a simple base of tartar and sodium bicarbonate, all sorts of essential oils and fresh ingredients are added to create the solid bubble bar slices we know and love.  To use, simply crumble under warm running water to create masses and masses of luxurious, softening, film star bubbles.  The Bubble Bath is back!  Patented.

 

Soaps

IMG_7985

LUSH has been manufacturing luxury handmade soaps since the mid 1980s. In a deliberate move away from truly mass commercial soaps, LUSH has perfected the technique of making solid soap by hand using the “pouring” method.  In 2007 Mo Constantine OBE helped to invent a palm oil free soap base – so not only are LUSH soaps not made with any animal fats, they also help to save the rain forests.  This base is available for any manufacturer who would like to use it.

Shower Gels

 

LUSH shower gels may not be naked … but they’re not virgin either!  The bottles are made from recycled plastic and manufactured in England.  By using recycled plastic for our bottles, we are saving nearly 73 tonnes of virgin plastic and 125 tonnes of carbon dioxide a year.

 

And for kissable Christmas lips, they have created the New Santa’s lip scrub

IMG_7988

The caster sugar in this scrub will gently exfoliate away any dry skin from your lips, whilst the extra virgin coconut oil moisturizes, leaving them soft and conditioned.  This lip scrub has the fragrance of fizzy cola sweets for delicious tasting kisses, with a hint of festive red.  Scrub lips before applying color for a flawless pout.

Enjoy your Christmas shopping 🙂
