They sent a few samples of deodorant with the shipment, and Dan and I were surprised at how they smelled, and at how effective they seemed to be. After a few days, we decided to order the Aromarant deodorant and the Squeaky Green Shampoo.
We got that box the other day and have been very pleased with those products.
“Lush deodorants contain no harsh chemicals to block perspiration and irritate skin. Instead we use sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) to absorb moisture and neutralize odour, and essential oils to battle bacteria and odour. The hotter you get, the better you smell.
Aromarant is a lemon and herb-scented block of deodorant made with fresh lemons because they are astringent, cooling and good for armpits. We use a fine collection of plant infusions too. Cleavers calms the skin and witch hazel and oak bark are strong, skin-cooling astringents. Bicarbonate of soda absorbs odors and neutralizes the microbes that live on your skin and react with sweat to cause pongs. Sandalwood oil makes you smell good. Done.”
That’s what they say about the deodorant, and as far as we can tell, it seems to be true. We stay pretty fresh, and the scent is neither masculine or feminine, so it works well for both of us.
“Whenever we can, we turn our products solid. Solid shampoo needs no preservatives, requires no packaging and lasts for ages. You can take just one bar on holiday and wash your body and clothes with it too! Keep yours dry between washes and you’ll be bored with it before it runs out.
Refreshingly herbal for squeaky clean hair. Virtuous without being boring, Squeaky Green is a fantastic shampoo for hair and scalp, even helping to reduce dandruff. Nutritious nettle, restorative rosemary, purifying tea tree and stimulating peppermint pack its little green body with riches for your head. As a bonus, Squeaky is fabulously fragranced with our refreshingly herbal Go Green scent. Now proudly SLS-free.”
That’s the shampoo sales pitch, and so far, we agree completely. Oh, and I can’t say enough about how wonderful the Lush shampoos smell!
The prices may seem a little steep, but from everything I read, it looks as if each Lush product should last nearly one year, which really might be considered a savings…
