Quarantine is a hard time for Lushies. Not only can we not go to stores and inhale that to-die-for Lush smell, but shipping has been super slow—both things that we, as supporters of a company that cares, understand wholly. We do our part to keep Lush afloat so they can help others in these trying times, and we understand why things are different. We stay at home with our hordes of bathtime goodies, patiently awaiting the time when we can emerge back into the world smelling like a concoction of Sleepy, Olive Branch, and Sex Bomb.
In the meantime, the challenge for many of us is picking products that will work for us without being able to go into a physical store and talk to the wonderful Lushies that work there. How else can you create the perfect blend of Lush products to keep your spirits high and your skin soft?
Lush has a few solutions—virtual chats with real team members being one innovative option—but so do I: here’s my ultimate Quarantine Lush List to feel your best!
Sleepy Body Lotion
Packed with glitter, lavender, and metaphorical billowing clouds of comfort, anything from the Sleepy line is a sure fit for your quarantine stash. It can be hard to sleep with all the world’s problems running through your head, but coating yourself in Sleepy from head-to-toe has the power to soothe even the most restless of souls.
Mask of Magnaminty
For those of us who swear by Lush’s fresh face masks, it can be hard to find a replacement when stores are closed. Luckily, Lush has us covered with this awesome classic product. This mask can be used on your face or body to exfoliate and refresh skin, making you feel like you just stepped out of a minty paradise.
The Greeench Deodorant Powder
Although this light, powdery deodorant might not always have enough power for hot, sweaty days in the summer sun (at least for me), it’s perfect for lounging around the house. Many non-Lush deodorants and anti-antiperspirants contain harmful chemicals that you won’t want to expose your skin to, especially when the only people who are smelling you are your housemates. Keeping fresh with a powdered deodorant like The Greeench is the best way to care for your body while still feeling fresh when stuck inside.
Henna Hair Dye
I have never personally used Lush’s Henna Hair Dye, but it seems like the perfect option for people who aren’t able to get their usual color or brand of hair dye due to shortages. Although somewhat time consuming, Lush’s Henna Hair Dyes are actually good for your hair. And who doesn’t have a little extra time to kill?
Goddess Bath Bomb
Unofficially inspired by Ariana Grande, this galaxy of purple sparkles is sure to make you feel like its namesake. Besides the pretty purple swirls, Goddess brings moisture to neglected quarantine skin with cocoa butter and an unforgettable jasmine-rose aroma that will make you want to take bath after bath.
