LUSH Cosmetics Valentine’s Day 2013

LUSH Cosmetics

LUSH Cosmetics is celebrating massage for Valentine’s Day 2013!  I like Lush Cosmetics view that “Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be about spending the big-bucks or grand, over-the-top gestures.” The following are available online, and at your local LUSH store. You may want to call ahead if you’re looking for a specific item, since I’ve found that seasonal items can be sold out quickly.

LUSH products are 100% vegetarian, 82% vegan, 60% preservative-free, and no animal testing being done on LUSH products or ingredients.

This soap resembles a Willow Pattern china plate, which portrays star crossed lovers in a carving in blue on the top.  The soap base has cornflour and talc which will soften dry, sore skin.  There is also rose absolute, rose oil and rosewood oil, which make it very moisturizing.

 

Magic Mushroom Bubble Bar ($5.95), was a favorite in 2012, and LUSH has brought it back:

LUSH Cosmetics Cynthia Sylvia Stout Shampoo Review

LUSH Cosmetics:

“Order Me A Pint of Beer…For My Hair!”

I purchased a LUSH Cosmetics shampoo called Cynthia Sylvia Stout. LUSH Cosmetics. I wanted to try this shampoo as I have read that beer is good for your hair if you use one that has ale hops and yeast.  Well, I am here to report that it is not a myth, and LUSH has formulated Cynthia Stout with organic vegan stout beer from a local brewery, and it contains protein to give your hair weight, smoothness, and a really beautiful shine. What they told me in the LUSH store was that this is the shampoo to use if you have hair that gets frizzy-looking when there is damp or humid weather conditions. This shampoo, though, can be used for all hair types.

LUSH Cosmetics

LUSH Cosmetics Cynthia Sylvia Stout sizes and prices:

3.3 fl. oz is $9.95

8.4 fl. oz is $19,95

16.9 fl. oz is $29.95

This LUSH Cosmetics product is Vegan, which means that it does not contain animal products of any kind. As you might expect, the shampoo does have the smell of a fine ale. However, LUSH does add fresh organic lemon juice, lemongrass oil, and cognac oil, to provide a richer and very pleasant aroma overall.

LUSH Cosmetics Cynthia Sylvia Stout Ingredients:

Stout (Beer), Water (Aqua), Ammonium Lauryl Sulfate, Fine & Coarse Sea Salt (Sodium chloride), Lauryl Betaine, Propylene Glycol, Benzyl Alcohol, Fresh Organic Lemon Juice (Citrus limonum), Cognac Oil (Vitis Vinifera), Lemongrass Oil (Cymbopogon citratus), Balsamic Vinegar, Yeast Infusion (Yeast betaglucan), *Citral ,*Geraniol , Perfume, Methylparaben, Propylparaben

Almost finished with the bottle! (My husband and son also love the shampoo and use it.)

LUSH Cosmetics

I love that LUSH Cosmetics products have the photo on the back of the product with the person who made it and the date. Also, the date of expiration.

What I love about LUSH Cosmetics Cynthia Stout:

  • Cruelty Free
  • Vegan
  • It’s for all hair types, but especially beneficial for taming the frizzes!
  • For all scalps because yeast improves the health of the hair and scalp and is said to encourages new hair growth.
  • Will add lots of shine! 
  • As it did for mine, I’m sure it will give your hair lots of added volume
  • The shampoo lathers up really quickly!
  • The organic beer is local to the LUSH Vancouver manufacturing facility

Cons for LUSH Cosmetics Cynthia Sylvia Stout?

Yes, I really wish that it did not contain Ammonium Lauryl Sulfate.

In case you were wondering:

My children and I love Shel Silverstein! One of his poems is about a girl who refused to take the garbage out, and her name was: Cynthia Sylvia Stout. That’s where LUSH got the name for their shampoo (along with the clever play on words with “Stout” in the name and beer in the shampoo).

LUSH Cosmetics Join Forces to End Cosmetics Testing on Animals!

Great news! LUSH Cosmetics, The Humane Society of the United States and Humane Society International now have a global campaign to end cosmetics testing on animals.

“The beauty industry continues needless animal testing and it’s time for it to stop,” said Kate Willett, director of regulatory toxicology, risk assessment and alternatives for The HSUS. “Consumers are largely unaware that some shampoos and lipsticks still involve chemical poisoning of animals such as rabbits and mice. Science has moved us beyond this and there is no place for cosmetic testing on animals in modern society.”

Please, I ask you to show compassion to innocent animals and sign the national petitions! You can do this while you’re purchasing cruelty free products at your local LUSH stores,  online at humanesociety.org/becrueltyfree, or http://www.fightinganimaltesting.com/NA

The following quotes are from the global campaign:

“U.S. law requires companies to assure that their products are safe, but does not require animal testing, since safety can be assured by using established, safe ingredients and available non-animal test methods. However, some companies continue to produce new cosmetic ingredients and test them on animals.

“Animals should not have to rely on voluntary codes of conduct but should be protected by robust laws that force all companies to adopt humane methods to bring their products to market,” said Brandi Halls, North American campaign manager for LUSH Fresh Handmade Cosmetics.

LUSH, The HSUS and HSI believe that testing on animals to produce new cosmetic products or ingredients is unjustified. Animals are subjected to considerable pain and distress during toxicity tests. A large proportion of the animals used in cosmetic testing are laboratory-bred rodents, who receive no protection under the Animal Welfare Act.

Animal toxicity tests are also scientifically unreliable for assuring human safety because animals and humans can respond very differently to the same chemicals.”

Ban cosmetics testing in the USA!

Lush Cosmetics: The Gorilla Perfumers Have New Fragrances

Available now, and exclusively online, nine new fragrances from the Gorilla Perfumers, Mark and Simon Constantine, who a father and son team. They created all of their perfumes for Lush Cosmetics to be, “an antidote to boring, mass-market scents.”

I have not yet tried any of these fragrances from Lush Cosmetics, but I wanted to call them to your attention. The only downside I can comment on, at this time, is that I’m sure it will disappoint some fans that these are only available online.

1000 Kisses Deep
($39.95 30 ml/$15.95 10 ml/ $12.95 solid/ $3.00 2ml)

This is described as, “An exquisite and delicate apricot-note from osmanthus blossoms, combined with a touch of mandarin and deep resins, expresses the complexities of true love.”

 

B Scent
($42.95 30 ml/$16.95 10 ml/$12.95 solid/$3.00 2 ml)

This is described as, “A stylish and utterly feminine combination of rose tempered with notes of lemon, bergamot, fennel and sandalwood.”

Cocktail
($39.95 30 ml/$15.95 10 ml/$13.95 solid/$3.00 2 ml)

Mark Constantine writes that this is,“a beautiful dress-up fragrance; a final gesture in the ritual of preparing to go out for a special evening. The leading lady in this scent is ylang ylang followed by notes of jasmine, rose, orange blossom, oakmoss and sandalwood.”

Dear John
($39.95 30 ml/$15.95 10 ml/$3.00 2 ml)

This fragrance contains a splash of pine, cedarwood and vetivert with a strong coffee note.

Ginger
($12.95 solid)

This is, “a crisp and true ginger with the addition of mimosa, rose and jasmine to enhance the vibrant complexity. The matching Ginger lotion is available at Retro LUSH (online).

 

Ladyboy
($39.95 30 ml/$15.95 10 ml/$12.95 solid/$3.00 2 ml)

Ladyboy is unisex. “With notes of banana, seaweed, violet and oakmoss, it‟s not your average perfume.”

Love
($39.95 30 ml/$15.95 10 ml/$12.95 solid/$3.00 2 ml)

”Love opens with a bright green apple note and develops into a spicy fragrance with cinnamon and cassia to remind you of the exhilaration of romance.”

SuperWorldUnknown
($49.95 30 ml/$19.95 10 ml/$12.95 solid/$3.00 2ml)

The description for this fragrance is: “If you’re feeling down and lost, follow Swedish/Norwegian singer Karin Park’s advice and enter the SuperWorldUnknown. Karin’s title song was written for someone who had lost a loved one to make them see the world as a wonderful place again. Fittingly, the combination of citrus notes and chocolate in SuperWorldUnknown is like a surrealist dream of running away to the circus and escaping ties.”

The Smell of Weather Turning
($49.95 30 ml/$19.95 10 ml/$14.95 solid/ $3.00 ml)

”A countryside thunderstorm in a bottle, it opens in reverse. Starting with the fresh smell of rain on greenery after the clouds have passed, it develops a darker, smokier character as it warms on your skin. In the final stages, the smell of sweet hay and woods comes through. Contains notes of oakwood, hay, beeswax, nettle, English peppermint, mint and Roman chamomile.”

Has anyone purchased any of these new fragrances? Will you please leave a comment if you have. Thank you!
