My New Addiction: Lush Fresh Handmade Cosmetics


So the story goes something like is…..
A long time ago in my teenage years I had so many problems with my skin such as Acne, Eczema even having major skin reactions that left my confidence in a vulnerable state of mind.
So over years I stuck by a lot of basic products, but now I have turned 33 and in the blogging eye I have been adventurous and found some amazing items I would never of in the beginning.
It all started with a trip to one of the Lush stores in Wakefield I was looking for a few things for my dads birthday ended up getting what I went in for, but then got chatting to one of the ladies about how I have not used any of the items as I have Eczema.
She told me a little more about Lush and how they are natural and is fine on my type of skin I never got pressured in to trying any items it was more me wanting to try new products and see for myself. 


In May of 1995, Lush’s fresh products were officially launched, but the company’s history stretches back far beyond that time. The present creative team has been working together for over twenty years (but they prefer not to get too specific in case anyone thinks they might be getting a bit long in the tooth). Suffice to say that they started working together when they were all very young indeed, developing hair products with natural ingredients, making immensely successful products for the Body Shop, launching their own, ground-breaking, mail order business Cosmetics to Go in the UK then starting all over again.
The Lush name was the result of a competition which ran in the fledgling company’s first handmade newsletter and catalogue. Mrs. Elizabeth Bennett of Edinburgh decided on Lush and curiously, quite independently and at the same time, so did the team. From their home in 29 High Street, Poole, Dorset at the seaside of the south of England, Lush grew into the international company we know and love – still managing to stay friendly and accessible, still hand-making fresh products but now in quite a few different factories around the world.
How do we do this? There are lots of reasons why Lush has grown but kept the feeling of being a small business which stays true to its original aims. We do business with people we like. The company’s directors still create all the products and do not compromise on quality. Mark Constantine and his son Simon create all the fragrances, using the loveliest ingredients in the known universe. We’re probably the only company which uses real jasmine absolute perfume (more expensive than gold) in affordable objects to throw in the bath! All Lush products are still handmade; when we expand we employ more people not machines. We do stay true to our original aims and instead of feeling like one huge business, we’re more like lots of small ones which all work together.
Products may be different shapes in different countries because individuals mould them in their own style. They may be different colours; the oranges available in Italy are different from the ones used in Japan; Australia uses different grapes from the UK. Nevertheless, you will always recognise Lush by the quality of the ingredients, the freshness and the unmistakable scent of hundreds of essential oils.
Today we have over 820+ shops in 50 countries across the globe! Because we stick to what we believe in, we hope that Lush will continue to grow but will always keep its heart and soul.
What caught my eye was a round shimmering bath oil with a sweet smell to it more like candy floss!
Thinking back this is the one that got me addicted and what was it as I am sure you would love to know –  Melting Marshmallow Moment Bath Melt
 What Lush says about this bath oil….
For a sweet, sweet bath there is a sweet, sweet treat and in this sweet, sweet bath take a sweet, sweet seat. Let your troubles mmm…elt away as skin is soothed by marshmallow and calming marigold powders. If its bright yellow and pink sandwich of colours doesn’t bring to mind dolly mixture, its candy floss scent surely will. Whether you’re young in years (or young at heart) sweeten up with waters shaded a dusky peach.

Ever wondered what bathing in deep space would be like? Invite the cosmos into your bathroom with this sexy, interstellar bomb and become the guardian of your own galaxy. An awesome mix of refreshing peppermint and neon colour sends your mood rocketing, while popping candy takes you on a trip around the Milky Way.
Constellations swirl and pop, creating vibrant lustre vortexes in the night sky. Before you leap too far, rogue layers of vetivert and cedarwood take hold, evoking the warmth of human contact far from home and a hint of 80s aftershave. Return from your intergalactic brief encounter as the grounding scent brings you gently back from orbit.
I would highly recommend Melting Marshmallow Moment Bath Melt + Dream Cream if you have skin like me that’s tends to be sensitive plus eczema prone skin, if you are a first time buyer from Lush start off with these to see how you go.
Will be doing other posts about Lush very soon on Easter – why not pop over to my social sites for more information and pictures + Lush videos on my youtube channel.
