I am a LUSH virgin. Ever since I first came across this store way back in grade school, I’ve always had an aversion to it. The intermingling smells were overwhelming, and all the slabs of soap in the windows looked like… food. Or rather, mouldy cake. Learning that everything was freshly handmade with no preservatives made my presumptions worse – if the stuff is made out of food, doesn’t that mean it will mould even faster?
Inspired by angelandthings‘ review on Buffy, I decided to check out the LUSH website for myself. I’ll admit, some of their stuff was intriguing. In particular, the fresh face masks had me lusting to get my hands on them, especially since I have sensitive skin and their products claim to be good for sensitivity, due to their lack of preservatives.
