After a couple visits at Langemunt 1 (Ghent), I’m still excited to enter the LUSH store. Behind the great glass doors there’s working an awesome crew with their always smiling faces. Even when I’m in a bad mood day the staff is still able to put a smile on my face (too). And that’s not all… The products, spirit and marketing are W.O.N.D.E.R.F.U.L.
We believe in buying ingredients only from companies that do not conduct or commission tests on animals and in testing our products on humans.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.
I have to admit that I was a little sceptic at the beginning – the first time I was at LUSH I only bought one product – but now that I’ve tried a couple, I’ve become a true believer. When I’m passing by the store I can’t help myself to enter and smile! And that did happen – shame on me – only three days ago.
I was in great need of shampoo, so I started smelling all of the typical black pots. Daddy-O (9,10 euro – 100 ml) caught my eye immediately because of the purple cream in the bottle. As a blonde I know purple hair products give blond hair a boost. And so did it; after trying my new shampoo the yellowish Barbie frizz in my hear – the ones I hate with my entire heart – were found to be brighter after using Daddy-O only twice. In the LUSH store a brunette told me she used the product too and she recommended me to use it together with the American Cream conditioner. The American Cream (7,10 euro – 100 ml), a dream come true, gives my curls a silky and shiny touch. And I don’t even have to use my perfume anymore, because of the yummy smell of the conditioner: strawberries with a touch of vanilla – all day long!
In my turn, I’m recommending this duo to all of you, blondes and brunettes, because the products work perfectly together. The Daddy-O shampoo is a must-have for everyone who wants lighter and healthier looking locks. The American Cream conditioner is great for every hair type and smells like heaven; thereby one of the bestsellers of LUSH. The perfect treatment to protect your hair from the sun this summer.
Other LUSH products I ♥:
1. Buffy: exfoliating body butter you should use in the shower. It keeps the skin soft to the touch and you don’t have to use body lotion afterwards. Ideally for dry skin types (I gave it to my mom for her birthday and she was in love with it).
2. Ro’s Argan body conditioner: similar to Buffy you should use this cream in the shower. It makes the skin soft and hydrated and gives it a nice rose scent.
3. Angels on Bare Skin: a cleanser for dry to normal skin and one of my personal favorites. Mix with warm water for a smooth and radiant result.
