For anyone unaware, Lush Cosmetics is a company that specializes in skin and bath-related products, making everything from bath bombs to facial soap bars. Their products are stellar thanks to the strict company policies they abide by, and to give you a sense of what I mean by this, check out the following excerpt from their website:
“Since 1995, Lush has been a trailblazer in the cosmetics industry. From inventing bath bombs and creating new, innovative products to fighting animal testing and ethical campaigning, it’s come a long way since its humble beginnings… We believe in making effective products from fresh, organic* fruit and vegetables, the finest essential oils, and safe synthetics. We invent our own products and fragrances. We make them fresh by hand using little or no preservative or packaging, using only vegetarian ingredients, and tell you when they were made. We believe in buying ingredients only from companies that do not commission tests on animals and in testing our products on humans.”
They’re pretty good shit, and while I don’t exactly shop at Lush often, anytime I have, I’ve been more than satisfied with the products I’ve snagged.
Recently, I received a Lush gift set as a Christmas gift. Called ‘Love Makes it Better,’ this particular set comes with two bath bombs, a bubble bar, a shower gel and a shower jelly. The products themselves came inside a really neat steel lunch box, and when I had the chance to read through the entirety of the enclosed product description, I realized this gift was significantly more special than I initially thought.
The artwork on the lunch box was done by Simon Hammond, and this set is part of a collection titled “ARTHOUSE Unlimited,” which “… presents the artistic talents of adults living with complex neurodiverse and physical support needs. The artists work alongside instructors to create artwork which is developed into designer products for sale. All artwork derives from each artist’s skills and every contribution holds real value, offering a sense of purpose,” according to the tag on the lunch box.
I think this is an incredible product and furthermore gift, and I encourage everyone to make a trip to Lush to grab one of these sets for themselves.
