The mention of beauty products made of natural ingredients may not enthuse as much as it would have a few decades ago but all it takes to change this mood is a trip to Lush. Fresh handmade cosmetics out of fresh fruits and vegetables, Lush has a wide range of bathing and shampoo bars, liquid soaps, shower jellies, bathing salts, body lotions that give natural and freshly made cosmetics a whole new meaning.
With over 500 stores spread across the globe, Lush products strictly use any preservatives. Rather the cleverly combined ingredients stabilize the products thereby including a longer shelf life. All Lush products are handmade from fresh fruit and vegetables along with essential oils.
If there's something that outdoes the sheer range of Lush products is the exhilarating combinations that the products are made. Imagine shower gels concocted by combining jasmine, ylang, cypress and palmarosa or cinnamon, clove, fruit juices and lashings of red wine along with brandy. Together innovatively combining components handpicked from across the world Lush offers great variations of classic products, something like Rub, Rub, Rub a deviation of the normal shower gel that comes in a scrub form and is made from sea salt mixed with a dash of lemon juice and a mimosa blossom.
One of the most novel variant at Lush is their Teo solid deodorants; Tea tree, lemon, juniper deodorant bar is made of soda and magnesium that simply absorbs excess perspiration and can be easily transported around.
Walking along the display at a Lush store is unlike anything you'd experienced at a cosmetic store. A medley of fresh fragrances burst around your senses right from the moment you walk into the store. Imagine walking in a garden on a nice autumn day. Now you multiply that a sense with a sense of unbridled joy; that's what a visit to a Lush store does.
This is very essence of Lush products is best seen in their signature Grass Shower Gel that is made wheatgrass juice and oils that gives a very earthy scent of a freshly mown lawn in spring! Now you might think smelling like fresh grass is not that exciting a thought but once you sniff this gel there is no way you are not picking it up!
Natural, fresh, handmade with the choicest material picked from all over the globe, Lush products are priced on the higher side (a bar of soap starts at over 200s) but once in a while indulgence is worth every single rupee. A high degree of consciousness while packing and recycling products makes buying these somewhat exorbitantly priced Lush products an environmentally friendly friendly decision too!
Lush Stores are at Select CityWalk Mall, Delhi and Ambience Mall, Gurgaon
