I love the idea of putting on something so clean and pure that I might as well have made it myself; products that are carefully, and naturally made with food from the kitchen. Sounds easy, right?
Lush was an accidental find. I was in Santa Barbara, Ca and wandered into their store. As soon as I touched just one of the products, I was trying everything, like a thirsty puppy. My skin was calling out for some healing and nurturing- finally I was home!
With locations all over the world, plus a great customer service department, you can have a direct contact to skin therapy!
I grabbed up several items, and will be trying several products and letting you know how I’m progressing toward reversing the clocks.
But, this entry is all about CoCo Lotion. A perfect introduction to spring and the fun of summer coming up; CoCo lotion is full of “freshly squeezed pineapple juice”, extra virgin coconut oil, and “an infusion of mandarin and rosemary”! How can you beat that? Lush has so many yummy choices- you are going to want one of their products for every waking hour. Trust me on this one.
Here are the details:
- Main ingredient Pumpkin seed oil contains zinc, magnesium, carotenoids and a good balance of essential fatty acids (omega-3 and omega-6).
- It is also very high in vitamin E, which makes it highly suitable for use in cosmetics.
- Using fresh fruit enzymes on the skin is an excellent way to encourage it to remain at its best.
- Bromelain has a gentle but powerful ability to stimulate and brighten the complexion.
Other ingredients include:
o Pimento extract
o Nutmeg extract
o Peanut Oil
o Spring Water
o Sesame Seed Oil
