Lusting after LUSH

I am in love with LUSH products. They smell amazing, they feel amazing, I think they are great products.

Yesterday I went on a little shopping date with Lauren and we hit up a bunch of stores – one of which being Lush in Center City.

I picked up a few different goodies that I wanted to share with my readers! 

First I picked up a solid shampoo bar in the Godiva scent. I was very intrigued by these bars because they are supposed to last for over 80 washes, which I think is pretty awesome!

It is made of cocoa and shea butters which combine to create a rich, thick feel to the lather. They combination also moisturizes the hair follicles and condition to make hair soft.

It is jasmine scented and smells amazing.

Side Note: Godiva is named after the woman who famously rode through the streets of Coventry with only her long flowing locks to cover her modesty. She was protesting against the taxes which her husband was planning to introduce

I also picked up a Too Drunk Emotibomb, not to cure any possibly future hangovers, but to ward off a pending sickness. With my first marathon a few days away, and the weather being a little crazy, I picked up this little number to help if I was starting to feel icky.

This Emotibomb is made with fennel and peppermint oil. The deep aroma of fennel brings concentration and focus back to the mind and peppermint for pain relief and reducing mental fatigue.

You toss this on the floor of the shower and let the aromatherapy help you feel better! I might bring this to Chicago because I tend to get head colds when I travel!

Better safe than sorry!

I also picked up a T’eo deodorant bar too. I have been wanting to explore other deodorant options because I have heard than natural options are better for women, I forget where, but just something I heard. I am still going to use my regular stuff for exercising, but I wanted to see how this goes.

This bar is filled with lemongrass, juniper berry, tea tree and lemon essential oils help to combat bacteria and microbes.

The bar itself is magnesium carbonate which is a solid, white mineral, and frequently occurs in nature mixed with calcite, forming dolomite or dolomitic limestone deposits. It acts as a perfume carrier in T’Eo.

It’s also vegan!

My most favorite thing from LUSH is their Bath Bomb – and my most favoritest (is that a word? because it should be!) scent is Honey Bee. Oh me, oh my it smells like heaven!

I really love all the fresh products that Lush has to offer. There really are some different, fun products to try there.

DSC_0565

While some of the products can be a little on the more expensive side, I really like buying gifts at Lush, or treating myself to something fun there once in a while!

Are you a LUSH fan? What’s your favorite product? What do they have there that you would want to try?

Oh She Glows Bars

Have you ever had a Glo Bar?

jacksons 4 095

I got to try my first one in my Healthy Living Summit swag bag last month, and let’s just say it definitely lives up to the hype!

jacksons 4 096

I have been a fan of Angela and her blog for a while now, and I know how much love and effort goes into these little bars. She does an amazing job, so when I found a Glo bar in my swag bag, I knew I had to keep it safe until I got home and could have a special moment with this prized possession!

I packed the bar with socks around it so it wouldn’t break on the plane ride! Thankfully it made it home safe and sound.

I was very excited to try out the Empower bar – which is flavored with a energizing organic dark roast coffee and dark chocolate.

Each bar is packed with hemp seed, flax seed, coconut, natural peanut butter and 20 mg of caffeine!

This bar was nothing short of amazing. It was soft and chewy and full of flavor!

jacksons 4 110jacksons 4 113

I was so happy that I saved this bar to enjoy quietly at home! It was quite a treat!

Are you a Glo Bar fan? What’s your favorite flavor?

***Side Note*** I ate this bar right after I got home from the HLS, not over a month later! :)
