Body Care, Get Local - December 8th, 2010
I visited Lush recently with a super-bad head cold, and was very happy to receive a tip about their Emotibombs. Specifically, the lovely young man showed me how awesome Too Drunk is for soothing a stuffy nose – it’s like WHOOSH! and all the mint and fennel clears your head. I promptly added one to my purchase, and I think I need to go back for a few more to get me through the rest of the holiday season. I love this one!
I also bought a King of Skin body butter after the nice young woman in the shop demoed it for me on my arm. Lush’s body butters are sort of a solid lotion bar that you use in the shower. I’ve used Buffy before and loved its fabulous scrubbiness, but I haven’t tried a non-scrubby body butter before. King of Skin has cocoa and shea butters, bananas, oatmeal, and avocados. You smooth it onto your skin, rinse a little bit, and voila! Super soft, really good scented skin. My itchy legs love it.
If you live in the Portland area, do visit the Lush on NW 23rd ave. The staff is always really nice and their new store is just beautiful.
