LUSH

Lush is back, and better than ever for Mother's Day 2019.

Fresh from their Valentine's Day success; they're introducing gifts for your lovely mum with personalised messages included, for the perfect expression of your appreciation.

The cruelty-free, eco-friendly company are introducing an extensive and colourful collection of bath bombs with notes hidden in the bath bombs, little scrolls of love delivered straight to your mum. 

Lush are asking their customers to change the way they convey their love, and we are SO on board;

"You can tell your loved one how you feel by removing the scroll and writing a message in one these personalised bath bombs. They’ll discover your note as they take a well-deserved soak," their website reads.

They've got jasmine, chamomile, iris and Marigold flower bath bombs, at €7.95 each. As the bombs fizz away, the flower pattern gradually rises to the surface and expands, creating a gorgeous spectacle.

Next on offer are their Madame President and Incredible Mum bath bombs; we're floored by these.

Their Madame President products are priced at 6.50 each, and are formed petit-grain oil, grapefruit and cornstarch for soft skin, antiseptic properties and calm vibes. According to Lush; "No matter what you stand for, rest assured that you run the world."

We like the sound of that. The Incredible Mum bath bomb is priced at €5.95, and is created for being there when nobody else is, and knowing the right time to appear with chocolate;

"When she feels stretched thin, why not treat her to a hot bath of mood-brightening bergamot and ylang ylang oils. A splash of orange flower absolute will have her raring to go and back to full power in no time."

Their butterfly bath bombs are captivating with their colourful patterns and luscious scents; we want them ALL for our mums and ourselves too. Self-care, and all of that…

Priced at €6.50 each, Lush have Wild Butterfly, Rose Butterfly, and Lemon Butterfly bath bombs on offer. and each one smells like pure joy.

A cocktail of soothing and uplifting oils will make your mum's bath experience her best yet; allow her to cocoon herself in a sweet and fruity experience of indulgence;

"As this butterfly-shaped bath bomb floats on the water, shimmery orange and yellow tones combine and fizz, surrounding you in scents of citrusy sweet wild orange oil and herbaceous olive leaf absolute."

As if this wasn't enough beautiful-smelling perfection, Lush have also procured MORE luxurious treats;

More Tea and Sympathy bath bomb (€9.95), Floating Flower bath bomb (€7.95) and GrlPwr bubble badge (€7.95), Strawberry Hill shower bomb €2.95, Mamma Mia shower scrub (€14.95), Hunny Bear massage bar (€7.95), and Raspberry Milkshake soap (€9.95).

After long days of running the world, these gorgeous items are the LEAST your mum deserves. Soothing fizz and foam will give your mum a fragranced cleanse like never before.

If all of those stunning purchases haven't solidified your faith in Lush, why not create your own gift using one of their limited edition Mother's Day knot wraps.

They're basically a piece of ornately decorated fabric which replaces disposable wrapping paper or a carrier bag, so you're saving the environment and your Mother's Day gift guide.

Inspired by furoshiki, an ancient Japanese tradition which uses techniques akin to origami, you can literally wrap pretty much anything regardless of shape or size.

Just pick out a product (or 10) that you love, and choose a Knot Wrap in store or online, ranging between €5.50 and €6.75 and made from recycled PET plastic. Simply gorgeous.

If you're prepared to give your mum the all-time Lush experience, the gift packages are NEXT LEVEL amazing.

Consider them chocolate box-style gifts full of treats for the sole purpose of pampering.

The floral designs are printed on 100 percent recycled cardboard and inspired by coral; the indulgent products inside are ready for restful soaks.

Ranging from €17.95 to €64.95 depending on your budget, there's something for everyone in each special set.

These fresh and fruity eco-friendly beauty products will have your mum in the best mood she's ever been in, all thanks to you. Lush, of course, can take some of the credit. We heart them.

The Lush Mother's Day collection is now available online and in Lush stores nationwide as of last Friday, February 15.

Go forth and purchase, but don't forget to buy something for yourself too….*winks*

Most of us don't think twice about plastic in our make-up and beauty regime. Yet once it's pointed out to us, it's completely unavoidable; plastic is EVERYWHERE in beauty.

From eyeshadow palettes to shampoo bottles, plastic toothbrushes which take over 400 years to decompose, foundation which isn't ethically sourced to packaging which could easily be replaced with recyclable equivalents; beauty is problematic when it comes to our environment.

What do we mean by sustainable cosmetics? Essentially; fair wages for workers, recyclable and biodegradable packaging, ethically sourced and natural, cruelty-free ingredients, renewable resources. In summary: doing no harm to the planet, other people or animals in the process.

Sounds great, doesn't it? So many of us tune out when we hear things about the environment; it all just seems overwhelmingly impossible to face it head-on.

Yet swapping your beauty routine for a greener option is SO easy, even small changes have large repercussions. We each must think individually about our own actions, rather than the planet as a whole.

Here are our top tips for reducing your carbon footprint through your beauty regimen…IT'S VITAL that we embrace the change.

1. Swap plastic toothbrushes for bamboo counterparts.

Toothbrushes are constantly bought and thrown away, without a single thought about where it goes after our bins are emptied. Basically, it heads to landfill, where plastic takes up to 1000 years to break down. Incredible, isn't it?

Changing your toothbrush for a bamboo one can HUGELY reduce the harm caused by your oral hygiene.

The Humble Co. sell great ones, check out their website here. You can also pop into your nearest Holland and Barrett health store. Pair it with Fig + Yarrow Cornmint Lavender Tooth Powder, which comes in little recyclable/reusable glass bottle and is created with white clay, sea salt, baking soda, and antibacterial essential oils.

2. Recycle your empty make-up containers in stores now

Since the creation of plastics, humans have made 8.3 billion metric tonnes of it. Of that amount, an incredible 6.3 billion metric tonnes have already been thrown out and 91 percent of that waste has NOT been recycled. It makes a lot of sense now why governments and communities are raising support for the banning of single-use plastics…

Make sure that your plastic bottles and empty make-up sets are recycled properly; companies such as Lush, The Body Shop and L'Occitane have unreal reward systems for returning your plastic packaging to the stores.

More stores are committed to limiting their impact on the environment. L'Occitane's new initiative with TerraCycle enables the recycling of beauty products from any brand. TerraCycle is a collection and recycling programme which specialises in difficult-to-recycle packaging, so they know their stuff.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by TerraCycle (@terracycle) on

Any L'Occitane customers can recycle their empties at any store now. Thirty-five percent of Lush products are sold 'naked' (with no packaging), so zero-waste washing is absolutely possible. Their products sold in pots and bottles are 100 percent post-consumer plastic. 

Save and return five clean, black pots to any local Lush store for a free face mask; you give back and you get in return. 

3. Know your brands, and choose ones who are HONEST about where their ingredients and packaging come from.

It's not difficult to be totally aware of what you're consuming and if it's harming anyone else. Send Instagram DMs or email the company to ask if the information isn't readily available on their packaging or websites. Hint: if the information is hard to find, it's probably NOT a good company to go with.

There are so many incredible natural, cruelty free and ethical make-up brands around now; Bia Beauty is an up-and-coming Irish brand we adore. Beauty Without Cruelty products for sensitive skin are considered among the best on the market. 

Lush are another company who partner with the Ocean Legacy Foundation to use recovered plastic from the ocean as material.

Christopher Davis, who is The Body Shop's international director of campaigns and corporate responsibility, said the brand is undertaking a "comprehensive review" of sustainable packaging choices. They are hoping to remove fossil fuels from 70 percent of its product packaging by 2020.

"Our long-term vision is that packaging will not harm people or the environment and can be repurposed," says Davis. "All our solutions need to be truly sustainable."

4. Get smart about your container use.

Why not try and use bars of shampoo rather than bottles? Numerous shops now have methods of bringing your own plastic bottles which have been recycled to collect any goods from the store, so they don't waste packaging.

Reuse empty make-up plastic packaging for something more creative. You can also try and use powdered deodorant or bars of soap instead of the spray-cans. For pump-bottles, you should generally throw away the pump before recycling as the metal springs inside can’t be recycled.

Once part of it isn't recyclable, it nearly always ends up in landfill or the sea, and we don't want that. Oh, and GET A METAL STRAW right this minute.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Axiology (@axiology_beauty) on

Terracycle has a partnership with Bausch & Lomb which aims to recycle contacts, blister packs, and the top foil from contact lenses, if you wear glasses. Terracycle also have an incredible partnership with Garnier, which recycles ANY hair care, skin care, and cosmetics packaging. 

5. Use recyclable make-up remover pads or a face cloth instead of wipes.

 According to the FDA, wipes are made from an amalgamation of ingredients such as polyester, polypropylene, cotton, wood pulp, and rayon fibres. Many of these are not biodegradable, but some wipes are compostable, such as RMS Beauty and Yes To.

We recommend the MakeUp Eraser remover cloths, they're absolutely life-changing. Buy them on iHerb at a great price, and never look back. The Cleanse Off Mit is another wonderful option; all machine-washable.

6. Eco-brushes

Pretty much every make-up brush is made from plastic, but we've discovered some alternatives. EcoTools brushes are made from recycled bamboo, recycled aluminium, and some recycled plastic: GORGE.

Morphe also has a beautiful 18-piece vegan brush set that we have our eyes firmly set on. ZOEVA do bamboo brush sets via Beauty Bay's website, for a heftier price.

In terms of hair brushes, try the WetBrush Go Green Detangler Brush, which is made of plant starch and designed to break down within five years.

7. Eco-lipstick

AXIOLOGY is your go-to for non-toxic lipstick. They value a holistic, vegan lifestyle and are 100 percent transparent about where their ingredients come from. The brand is pretty expensive if you're a student or on a lower wage, but it's excellent quality and totally ethical. Their boxes are sourced by Bali women who recycle local waste into paper.

The founder of AXIOLOGY, Ericka Rodriguez, is proud to use no palm oil or palm oil derivatives in their goods; "Palm oil is causing widespread deforestation and causing the extinction of many animal species. We donate to the Orangutan Foundation International to help the orangutans during this crisis."

Once again, go for plastic-free lipstick holders or lip liners if possible, or at least recyclable options. Check out earth911.com to find out about your plastic bottles and recycling options. Over 40 percent of the plastic we use is in the form of packaging, so it's time to change.

8. Ditch those plastic disposable razors ASAP

Girlos who shave, it's time to get a razor you can use again and again. Throwing away constant disposable plastic razors causes phenomenal harm to the environment, and we are so much better than that, ain't we? The EPA estimates 2 BILLION razors are thrown away each year….wow.

You can find a reusable, stainless steel razor in any major retailer, and can get reusable blades for cheap. It's cost-effective and eco-friendly beauty, let's DO IT.

9. Invest in double-duty products

Do you really need sun-cream AND foundation AND highlighter AND concealer AND moisturiser AND primer AND bronzer AND setting spray AND powder? We're guessing not.

Try choosing products which double-duty; like SPF BB creams, lip primers which have moisturising properties, tinted moisturisers etc. Minimise as much as you can, and really think about what you need versus what you want.

10. Tampons

Disposable tampon applicators are one of the BIGGEST forms of ocean plastic pollution. Why not try switching to applicator-less tampons, or invest in a menstrual cup. The cups last for up to 10 years, producing far less waste than disposable menstrual products, and avoid the chemicals present in tampons.

They also save you a lot of money over time, and are becoming far more popular as more women in Ireland try them out. In terms of applicator-free tampons, try Emerita.

Finally: Campaign for change.

Contact product manufacturers, give feedback to brands and express your wish that plastic they use is recyclable. Annoy them if you must; consumer pressure makes a significant difference. You can make the change.

It's worth a shot, lobby your local TDs so we can improve environmental laws. Email your favourite make-up brands, show your support for eco-friendly and ethical companies especially.

You can do it gals, a little change goes a long way.

If your costume isn't even started and the thought of a party makes you cringe – we've got you gal.

There's no fear for staying-in, and since October 31 is a Wednesday, it gives us more of an excuse to get into our jammies straight after work, close the curtains and shut out the world.

But we've got some FAB ideas on how to make this Halloween one to remember – for all the right reasons. 

1. Movie Night

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by MAKANAN POPULER & MAKANAN HITS (@laperkelenger) on

You don't have to be a horror fan to have a scary movie marathon. There are plenty of thrillers that won't give you nightmares.

Compile a list or check out some of our recommendations, grab some spooky snacks and get watching.

And with this October weather, the only thing you'll be missing by staying in, is the rain.

2. Pamper Night

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Lush Cosmetics North America (@lushcosmetics) on

Get the bath running, light some candles or burn some divine incense and dive into a Halloween pamper session. 

Lush has you covered for all the holiday bath bomb treats, from vegan, plastic-free Sparkly Pumpkin Bubble Bars, to Monster's Ball Fizzer. 

Give your skin an October make over, and scrub away those bad vibes, with Lush's Magic Crystals – it'll have you bewitched. 

3. Girls Halloween night-in

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Myriam (@myristica_me) on

If the thoughts of being alone on Halloween is creeping you out – grab the girls and enjoy a night in together.

It's an ideal time for bonding, catching up and you could even try your hand at carving up a pumpkin – plus, you'll all roll in fresh for work the next day.

If pizza, movies or pampering as a group sounds appealing to you – get dialling and organising.

4. Self-care scare

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by @growing.beans on

As the end of the year is just weeks away, this is the perfect excuse to take some time out for yourself.

Pick up a journal, and get writing, painting or use any creative outlet you have to look back at how far you've come in the last 10 months.

Set some goals for the remainder of 2018 and make a list of what you're grateful in life for. It maybe simple but we generally don't make the time to do things like these.

5. Family fun

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Danielle Mara (@danimaracreative) on

If you've got younger kids in the family, why not offer to help them out with their make up and costumes.

Particularly if you're hella talented with make up, they mightn't be grateful (age depending) on the hours you put in making them look spookatular – but one day they will – (make sure you take 6 million pics – you need collateral for the future).

And you can bet, their parents will be delighted. 

Added bonus for this one; you might get to help with their mountain of sweets they bring home and once they go to bed – it's fair game.

You can usually tell that the seasons are changing simply by glancing out the window or at the calendar on your phone, but another sure fire way to discover that Autumn is in full swing is the announcement of Lush's Halloween collections.

Arguably their most hotly anticipated of the year, the Halloween collection is one of the cutest and most innovative skincare and toiletry projects of the season.

The new line has just landed – and to be frank, it's looking spookier than ever.

Ectoplasm Shower Cream is top of the list, thanks to it's neon hue – very reminiscent of a recent Kim Kardashian wig. 

The shower cream has refreshing, aromatic notes of grapefruit and litsea cubeba, an Asian evergreen shrub also known fondly as 'mountain pepper.'

The cream also comes packaging free, in the form of one of Lush's naked shower gels, however if you do opt for the plastic bottle, you can always return it to Lush to be recycled.

Another limited-edition item serving looks is the Eyeball bath bomb.

The red hued eyeball looks pretty scary bobbing around in the tub, but before long the spooky exterior bubbles away to reveal a gentle rose and orange soak. 

Another new addition is the stunningly hued Magic Crystals scrub. 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Hannah Toman (@itsallaboutthelush) on

A lurid purple colour, it smells of delicious peppermint, and uses salt to exfoliate off dead skin and impurities. 

Magic Crystals isn't limited edition, but is a permanent new invention of Lush's being released with the Halloween collection.  

Recurring Halloween classics like the sparkly pumpkin bubble bar, cat-shaped Bewitched bubble bar and the Monster's Ball bath bomb are also making a return – and they're all available online now.

It's that time of year again – evenings are getting shorter, lipstick shades are getting warmer, and the LUSH Halloween collection is back on the shelves.

Last month, the ethical beauty brand took to Instagram to unveil some spooky treats for the season ahead, and after a long wait, we can finally reveal that seasonal products will land in Dublin stores tomorrow morning.

Think ghoulish bath bombs, fierce lip tints, and all the glitter you can get your hands on.

Oh and that's not all.

Rumour has it the Christmas collection will also be available from tomorrow – meaning we'll all be smelling like Snow Fairy for the foreseeable future.

But hey, we're not complaining.

Lush is one brand that is renowned for being hyper conscious about the impact the cosmetics industry has on the environment. 

Because of this, the brand is expanding their Naked packaging initiative to include more products, some of which are in their anticipated upcoming Christmas and Halloween ranges.

The initiative aims to completely eradicate the use of excess plastic in packaging. 

'In just one year, a single person uses up to 200 pounds of plastic, 60 pounds of which are immediately thrown away,' Lush explain on their website. 

'The overuse of packaging is a huge problem: it takes a lot of energy, water and natural resources to produce packaging, and when we simply throw it away, it pollutes our environment, puts wildlife at risk and piles up in landfills where it can take centuries to decompose.'

'We work hard to create innovative products that we sell completely naked: solid shampoo bars, conditioners, bubble baths and massage bars, which save millions of plastic bottles from being produced, transported and disposed of every year.'

'Peek into our #lushchristmas shower range and notice some new naked alternatives,' reads a recent Instagram post. 

'Be curious and give these a try when they launch in October!'

All of the Lush bath bombs already come completely plastic free, and their solid shampoo bars have been a massive success, so it's no surprise they are taking the next step to further minimise their plastic usage. 

In another Insta album of images, the new Naked Snow Fairy packaging can be seen next to the usual plastic bottles, which haven't been phased out quite yet.  

If you can't give up the handiness of a plastic bottle for whatever reason, don't be disheartened.  

All of the Lush plastic is 100pc recycled.

Ah autumn, a season marked by a number of distinctive hallmarks. 

First comes the brand new sartorial season, then the Pumpkin Spice Latte returns, and finally, calling a close to the summer, comes the Lush Halloween collection. 

Halloween has to be one of the most exciting times of the year, for the cosmetics and bath products alone if not for the festive frights and dressing up. 

The ethical beauty brand have taken to Instagram to unveil their Halloween collection, which hails the return of a few of our favourite products.

Showing off the dazzling beauty bits at the Lush Creative Showcase, we peeped piles and piles of sparkling bathbombs and shivering shower jellies.

The Ecotplasm Jelly Bomb, Pink Pumpkin Bubble Bar, Monster's Ball and the cat-shaped Bewitched Bubble Bar are all in in action on the online Lush store. 

The Halloween collection hasn't landed in Irish stores yet, but it's rumoured to be in in by the start of next week.

Until then we'll be filling up our online baskets with Lord of Misrule and Sparkly Pumpkin.

Lush fans across the world are mourning the loss of 45 of the beauty store's most loved products this week  – including the brand's original bath bomb, Blackberry.

Known for its extravagant shower gels, luxurious shampoo bars, and larger than life staff, Lush has been at the heart and soul of our bathroom routines since it came to these shores some 17 years ago.

Earlier this week, the natural beauty brand announced that it would discontinue 45 of their most well-know products in order to make room for some “new inventions”.

“As our inventors create products that are more effective, more eco-friendly or more enjoyable for our customers, we need to make room for these new inventions on our shop shelves,” a statement on the brand's website read.

“So although discontinuations are always a little sad, they ultimately result in waves of innovative, creative products that will become your new favourites.”

After a long day at work, there is no better feeling than dropping a gloriously scented bath bomb into a tub of hot water and having a good soak.

Through the haze of delicious scents and choruses of 'can I help you with anything?' that populate a Lush store, we almost always head straight for the precariously stacked, rainbow-hued corner which houses the bath bombs, so we like to think we're a bit of an expert when it comes to a Lush bath. 

That's why we weren't hugely surprised to discover that one particular bath bomb is the ethical bath product company's best-selling product. 

The Intergalactic Bath Bomb takes the top spot, with one being sold every 10 seconds, and 3.5 million sold across the globe last year. 

Lush describes the magical blue bomb as taking a trip through the beautifully coloured cosmos.  

'Invite the cosmos into your bathroom with this sexy, interstellar bomb and become the guardian of your own galaxy.'

'An awesome mix of refreshing peppermint and neon colour sends your mood rocketing, while popping candy takes you on a trip around the Milky Way.'

We're pretty sure we have one of the bad boys at home, so we know exactly what we'll be doing this evening.

Same sex marriage has only been legal in Ireland for about 14 months, so celebrating inclusive campaigns like Lush's new Valentine's Day photo set is a must.

Lush is known for being progressive in its business ethics and for its support of the LGBTQ community, after the brand came out with a "Gay is Ok" bath product last year. 

The new campaign is super cute and showcases two queer couples just doing their thing while being in love.

The male couple are shown enjoying a cuddle and a soak in a pink tinted bath, a simple way to add a splash of diversity to the usually heteronormative Valentine's Day conversation. 

A lesbian couple are shown having a bubble bath, complete with bubble beard. 

Campaigns like this help to normalise the concept of LGBTQ relationships and seeing homosexual couples on a commercial platform shows the progress society has made when it comes to being accepting of all sexualities, making them super important for the community. 

Lush have tagged all of their Valentine's social media postings with the hashtag #LoveIsLove. 

Keep doing you Lush.
