What I Liked
- They don’t test their finished products in animals
- They only purchase from ingredient suppliers who don’t test on animals
- The mostly natural ingredients
- Everything is handmade and when you buy a product, there’s a sticker on the packaging telling you who made it, on what date, and when to use it by.
- They use recycled and recyclable packaging
- The majority of their products are “naked”, meaning no packaging whatsoever
- Instead of traditional gift wrap, they use knot-wraps: reusable fabric either made from a material created from recycled plastic bottles, or from organic cotton.
What I Disliked
It’s pricey and the texture is thin, like store-bought lotion or something. It spreads quickly, but it’s just too thin.
There’s a Lush located in one of the malls that I frequent. Every time I passed by it, the scent emanating from there was so strong that I never wanted to go in. Babendude’s best friend’s wife likes the scent of vanilla and one year, we went in there to get her something for Christmas. I’ve never been back since, until I got a catalog in the mail. It was addressed to the previous tenant, but I still looked through it. Then I got curious and decided to check out the website. I’m always wanting to try new body butters and I really liked the fact that the majority of their ingredients were natural. I also liked the fact that sometimes the first ingredient wasn’t water. After browsing their website, I decided to venture into the store.
This was the second body lotion of theirs that I’ve tried and it was completely by accident. I had wanted to smell a non-Tester version, so I picked up a new container. I accidentally stuck my finger in it, wanting a sample, and then realized too late what I had done. Unfortunately, the store employee that was helping me saw me do it, so I had to buy it. LOL I hadn’t planned on buying it because I wasn’t a big fan of the smell. In addition to the pricey tag, the consistency of the product was too thin. I’m used to thick and creamy and this reminded me of those watery store-bought lotions I used when I was younger. I won’t be buying this one again.
