With Lush, bath time is never a quickie affair.
The brand is about the bath bombs that turn the tub into an essential oil-infused body soak; the colourful bubble bars that leave your skin covered in crazy colours like neon pink and orange while you scrub; and so on.
Lush products come in unexpected textures: solid hair conditioners and shampoos, toothpaste, mouthwash; wobbly jelly soaps; powdery bath bombs that fizzle like a coke in the water.
Some of the ingredients are also good enough to eat.
And the scents always hit you like…
So bath times becomes a true ritual, where you take time to unwind and take stock of the day.
The latest collection is no less fun.
