If you know anything about Lush, you probably know about their bath bombs. Those handcrafted, decadently scented balls of wonder enhance the bath-taking experience. Even if you’re typically not a fan of baths, chances are you’ve indulged at least once just to see what makes those fizzy little things so special.
For those of you who have grown to love Lush and their bath bombs, your world may have been turned upside down when you went to college. Once you realized that your dorm or your new apartment doesn’t have a bathtub, you may have thought your torrid love affair with Lush was over—how can you enjoy Lush’s organic and vegan friendly scents without a bathtub?
Actually, quite easily.
Get ready to step outside of your comfort zone and enjoy everything that Lush has to offer, with their wide range of beauty products that includes everything from soaps and lotions to even hair dye. The following Lush products are college girl tested and approved, meaning they smell amazing, are easy to carry on those walks to the shower and can help you speed up your daily beauty routine.
Fairly Traded Honey Shampoo
Straight from the bees, right to your hair! With more than half of this shampoo consisting of Fairly Traded honey from Zambia, this product smells like an unexpectedly wonderful combination of honey and baby powder. This shampoo will leave your hair shiny, lustrous and very moisturized. Just one use will leave your hair feeling as fresh as a bee’s favorite flower.
Plus, this preservative-free shampoo softens and cleanses in a way that is perfect for those living in hard water areas, where calcium buildup can be damaging for your hair.
It’s time to stop being afraid of bees, and time to start letting them do something nice just for you.
Happy Happy Joy Joy Conditioner
While the name may make you laugh at first, after one use I immediately understood why they had to “name it twice.”
Happy Happy Joy Joy Conditioner not only makes your hair outstandingly soft and shiny, but it smells like what I can only describe as a cool summer evening in Hawaii. Made with a mix of a rose water, orange blossom water and almond milk, this 100 percent vegan product moisturizes without weighing down. This makes it great for everyone, especially those with bleached or over-processed hair.
And, with a smell this sweet, you won’t have to worry about rushing to put on perfume before you head to class.
Sexy Peel Soap
Lush’s Sexy Peel soap is a college girl’s dream. Made from organic orange, lime and lemon peels, this soap cleans, exfoliates, tones and keeps skin clear all at the same time. Talk about cutting your beauty routine in half!
The sweet citrus smell will leave you smelling like an orange lollipop, and the juicy citrus splash of wonderful is the perfect pick-me-up on those sluggish mornings.
Warning: If you tend to have sensitive skin, use this product cautiously. The exfoliating citric acids have the potential of being slightly irritating at first.
Ro’s Argan Body Conditioner
Moisturizing your skin is extremely important, but with all of the other things you have going on, it can be hard to remember to put on lotion every day. That’s where Lush’s Ro’s Argan Body Conditioner comes in.
Like a hair conditioner, but for your body, this silky rose-scented concoction moisturizes skin to a point of absolute bliss. And, like a hair conditioner, you use it in the shower. At the end of your shower routine, simply rub Ro’s Argan Body Conditioner onto dry spots, where you typically like to moisturize or your entire body.
Rinse off, pat dry (when using this product, you may feel like it leaves a waxy film on your skin after you rinse off--but don’t abandon hope! After you pat dry, this waxy film will disappear, and you’ll be left with silky smooth skin), and you’ll now be able to go through the day smelling and feeling like a rose petal.
Better yet? No need for lotion! This body conditioner will be especially handy during those winter months when your skin is dry, but you hate the feeling of trying to put jeans on over your freshly lotioned legs. You’ll save time and smell great. What more could you want?
African Paradise Body Conditioner
Working the same way as Ro’s Argan Body Conditioner, Lush’s African Paradise Body Conditioner is filled with nourishing Fair Trade shea butter, Fair Trade Moringa oil and cooling Fair Trade aloe gel. The obvious difference between the two conditioners: the smell!
If roses aren’t you’re thing, maybe you’d prefer this unique and slightly spicy blend of carnation absolute, clove bud oil and sandalwood oil. The name “African Paradise” certainly is accurate. This product is also slightly heavier than Ro’s Argan Body Conditioner, so it’s great for those with especially dry skin. Just remember to pat dry after you shower, so you don’t wipe away any of that decadent moisture.
