The art of pampering yourself (award) has to go to Lush. These guys know how to make you feel good. Up until recently, I had a fetish for make up. Now, it’s toiletries. I cannot tell you how happy it makes me feel when I indulge in a new soap bar!

Lush has just made me crazier about bath products. We are also fans of their handmade colors, known to us lay people as lip tint or lip color. Read on.

I have to start with Ro’s Argan Body Conditioner. Who’s Ro? Thank you Ro. We love this creation. When I visited the store and spoke to Aleksandra Djurasic – PR & Marketing Manager, Lush UAE – I asked her, ‘How does one use a body conditioner?’ What is a body conditioner?’

She went on to explain to me that it is pretty much used in the same way as a hair conditioner. You wash your body, and then apply the (body) conditioner, leave for 3-5 minutes, and then rinse off.

Two things we love about it :

1. You don’t have to bother slathering yourself in body cream after you shower, especially, if you have had a long day and you just want to retire.

2. You know it is working because your bath tub floor just got dangerously slippery.

Aleksandra Djurasic, PR & Marketing Manager, Lush UAE, talks to DIAF about what exactly is LUSH, why it is so special and how handmade goods can prove to be effective skincare:

Turkish Delight Shower Smoothie:

We love this smooth shower cream. The consistency is that of ice cream, minus the ice, of course. If you can imagine ice cream that has just come out of your refrigerator, its that thick. You take a little and it slather it on. Please believe us when we tell you that it just melts your tiredness away. It may sound like we are totally romanticizing your everyday, bath routine, but really, that is what the bath products from this brand do to you. Oh did we mention, it smells divine? Roses, roses and more roses hand-picked in Turkey especially for you.

At DIAF, one thing is for sure, if we don’t have anything nice to say about something, we say little or nothing at all. But, if we truly like something and want to share the wealth of info, we don’t hesitate to talk about it at length with our dear readers.

Lush’s Handmade Colour:

Coming to the Handmade color by Lush, or as we know it, lip color. Again, when I was at the Lush store, I showed little interest in their make up section. In fact, I even went on to mention that I wasn’t at all interested in that section, expressing my desire to focus instead on bath and body products.

I got coaxed into trying on their ‘Passionate’ and ‘Drive’ handmade lip color, and it refused to come off until the next day. [‘Passionate’ is the fuchsia pink and ‘Drive’ is the purple / magenta color.]

This really is the stuff that makes you smile. Eight sips of my favorite soda, teamed with dinner and dessert, it looked almost as good as when I applied it. Needless to mention that it has a matte effect. If you like your gloss, just smother some on over it, and you can still be sure that the main color stays.
