Lush

So many of you may know that I am a huge fan of Lush. I love the products and the whole companies mission for that matter.

We live in a world filled with chemicals. We are taught to eat organic and healthy; to be mindful of what we are putting into our bodies so why wouldn’t we apply the same practices to what we put on our bodies? That is where Lush comes in. They use all natural and “naked” products for all of our cosmetic needs. From hair masks to massage bars and everything in between.

Recently however they have been under the microscope for an ad campaign that ran in Australia. This ad (shown below) features 4 naked women with their backs facing the camera. Now these are REAL women with REAL bodies that haven’t been air brushed, Photoshopped and distorted to meet the standard of an unrealistic “ideal” woman.

I see nothing wrong with the ad. Yes it shows 4 naked back sides but really people? It’s a but. It is truly not that bad. Watch a prime time TV show and you will see WAY more of some actors than you really want to or than anything seen in this ad.

But that is just my humble opinion! Check out the campaign for yourself and let me know what you think in the comment section below!

Charity Pot and Lush

Okay this is to fantastic not to share. On my lunch break I went to gt some hand cream because well my hands were dried out and lately I have been trying to buy products that have a social and environmental conscious. So off to Lush I went.

A little background, I have been shopping at Lush for a few years now. Slowly converting myself over from using other products. What I love the most is what Lush stands for and maybe that makes me a hippie but what is good for the earth is likely good for me too.

So I talked to the super friendly sales people in there and asked about hand lotion and was directed towards the charity pot. Now this little jar of hand happiness is chalked full of amazing things. Not only does it have olive oil, shea butter, cocoa butter and aloe in it, but it gives back. 100% of the price before taxes is donated back to grassroots organizations. In fact my little pot of happiness helps Foundation Hubert Lemire, which plants tress and teaches ecology in Haiti to help protect the environment there.

So that is my happy plug for the day!
