The Experience isn’t even the word… Here in our new article series, A Girl About Town, I’ll take you around my city and teach you some beauty findings like no other. Our First stop on the list is Lush Cosmetic’s Water-tower Chicago store.
Walking into Lush your nose gets taken over by wonderful smells of soaps, and bath bombs, and fresh products. You Name it they have it there. Take a look at my journey through lush water-tower and watch the story unfold along with the “bubble high 5′s”, the amazing personal one-on-one consultation you get, and not to mention my favorite products.
First things first, meet Anja, our tour guide of wealth and knowledge during our Lush trip. She taught me everything there was to know about all the products they had to offer. She started by the door giving me a hand treatment with a cuticle buffer, an exfoliating soap and some amazing cream… then we went onto the ‘fresh bar‘ where everything is refrigerated and totally fresh. Have you ever put on a face-mask with a fresh cool mask? I encourage you to try one of theirs, and you cannot beat the price!
Next she took me around the store moving around the huge table of handmade bar soaps to show me the Bubble Bars, the Bubbleroons, and the Bath bombs. She did a demonstration of how to use the Bubble bars and I was completely amazed. Watching the bubbles in the pitcher, the energy in the room, and the scent of the soaps I was getting Lush-drunk…
They also took a minute to talk to me about all the wonderful charities that Lush offers. Did you know all about Lush’s Charity Pot?
WHAT IS CHARITY POT?
At LUSH, we know we especially talented at making gorgeous, innovative products and we also know that there are some amazing groups out there doing impactful work on behalf of animals, people, and the environment. What do these two things have in common? Charity Pot! We started Charity Pot in North America in October 2007 to raise money for worthy organizations and projects. We used our talents to create a gorgeous hand and body lotion scented with geranium and ylang ylang and made with fair trade, organic cocoa butter and skin-softening almond oil. With every purchase of Charity Pot, we donate 100% of the price (minus the taxes) to small, grassroots organizations who could use the helping hand to continue the incredible work that they do. You end up with a gorgeous product, soft skin, and a warm heart. In addition to donating sorely needed funds to our Charity Pot partners, we also put their logos on each pot and have created this space so their hard work can be acknowledged and appreciated. Read on to find out more about some of the worthwhile projects your purchase has helped fund.
