I'm a sucker for LUSH. For my wallet's sake, I truly wish I wasn't. I mean, plunking down $8.95 for a bath bomb and $12.00 for a bar of soap that weighs 5 oz when I know 100+ creators that make these products often more beautifully and ALWAYS sell less expensively makes me feel like a traitor to my profession. But there is something so captivating about those ridiculously scent saturated little shops in the mall, whose color pigmentation nearly blinds you as you walk by. I can't help but be delighted by their charming set up, the enthusiasm of their sales associates, ( Alright, so sometimes they can be a little obnoxious but for me it's really nice to see someone excited about their products. haha) and then of course the good care of their employees which makes my heart happy. So, it's a splurge, but one I make just on occasion. :)
LUSH put out 5 new soaps recently and they are among the more unique ones I've seen. Below is the release announcement photo they posted on their Instagram.
Particularly, Maypole and Outback Mate. They even have a video up on their YouTube channel showcasing the latter being created in their studio!
|P.S. Mine got left in a really hot apartment for too long so it turned this lime green shade but it is originally a very dark, translucent, mermaid green. lol|
