LUSH Little Green Bag review + swatches
For Earth Day, I'll be indulging in the LUSH Little Green Bag, thanks to the folks at LUSH Cosmetics! Inside, you'll find four solid bath and body products and one travel tin --- all wrapped up inside a delightful leaf-patterned organic cotton scarf. LUSH solid products are eco-friendly for a number of reasons; they are preservative-free, packaging-free, and lighter, which means less energy is required to ship products. Of course, this makes them easier for you to carry around on your travels as well!
LUSH Sexy Peel Soap is an fresh citrus soap that I can't get enough of! True to its name, it's full of peels; it has a mixture of orange, lemon, and lime peels to give it its zingy scent. LUSH Each Peach Massage Bar is a citrusy massage bar. It has moisturizing mango kernel oil and cocoa butter. The uplifting scent comes from the inclusion of lime, mandarin, and orange essential oils. As you might expect, it pairs perfectly with Sexy Peel soap. Massage bars can, obviously, be used for massage, but they're great for regular moisturization as well. LUSH Mini Sugar Scrub is a solid scrub that's great for getting rid of unwanted bumps and cellulite. It also contains fragrant ginger and fennel to stimulate circulation!
As you might know by now, I'm a big fan of LUSH Shampoos; I've been using their solid bars for years (see my reviews of LUSH Jumping Juniper and LUSH Seanik). They're super sudsy and great for clarifying the scalp. I've been wanting to try LUSH Squeaky Green Shampoo Bar for some time now, so I'm excited to see it in this set. It has rosemary, nettle, peppermint, and tea tree oils for treating and cleansing stressed scalps. It's also accompanied by a LUSH Shampoo Bar Tin. I actually have a couple tins already; they're necessities if you like LUSH shampoo bars. The bars are perfect for travel and storage. You never have to worry about weight, liquids, or spillage!
The LUSH Little Green Bag ($25.95) is a hit for me, as I'm already a big fan of LUSH's travel friendly, preservative-free solid formulas. It has everything you would need for a shower routine and would be a nice set for those looking to get into LUSH products, or even for seasoned LUSHies like me!
Thanks for reading! Have you tried any of LUSH's solid products? What are your current favorite LUSH products? How are you celebrating Earth Day?
