In my blog for last week, I talked about some of the new holiday products that I cannot wait to try– one of them being the Gold FUN. I feel as though I should elaborate on LUSH’s FUN products.
These innovative, preservative-free and moldable Play-Doh like creations are extremely multi-purpose. They can be used for a multitude of things including:
2.) Bubble bath!
I currently have the Red and Green fun– both of which smell amazing. There are five colors: Blue, Red, Green, Yellow and Pink. The idea of these products is that they are supposed to remind you of your childhood whether it be baking cookies (Yellow) or eating candies (Pink). The reason why they are childhood centered is because “for every bar of FUN purchased LUSH donates 2.5% of the sales to the FUNd, which supports children’s play and recreation projects” in areas of Japan that were affected by the 2011 tsunami and the subsequent nuclear disaster.
LUSH often has charitable products that a percentage of the purchase goes to certain charities. There is even a body lotion called Charity Pot and every single penny used to purchase that lotion goes to grassroots charities around the world! You know what, I never really payed attention to the Charity Pot before, but I am definitely going to try it out whenever I go to a LUSH store this Friday!!
Now back to the FUN! Yes, so I have both the Red and the Green FUN. I remember being pretty excited to try these out in person, and I finally got to buy one while I was in Toronto for my choir adjudication trip. I bought the Red FUN because it smells so bright and fruity. Each bar is packed with orange and mandarin oils to brighten up your mood. To me, the Red smells like gummy bears! The only problem I had with this product is that it started to melt. The packaging is a biodegradable cellophane wrapper through which the product started to leak. I just put it into a Tupperware container and it’s all good now. Oftentimes when I am washing my hands I just reach over and grab a little bit of the Red or Green FUN and wash up. My hands smell great and they feel really clean!
The Green FUN reminds me of lime lollipops that doctors or dentists handed out when I was little. I love the scent! It really does take me back to my childhood. I bought the Green while I was at King of Prussia with my mother this past May. It is filled with lemon and lime; the scent is really fresh and zesty! Just a few weeks ago I took a Green FUN bath and it was great! The bubbles were nice and big, the water was lightly scented and I made a brontosaurus!
I can see how this product would be loved by parents and children alike or anyone for that matter. The price is really low– only $6.95 per bar that lasts for a long time! I only used about a ninth of the Green bar for my bath. It is super fun to make creatures with. Plus you can use it as a shampoo, a hand/body soap and a bubble bath! FUN works well when crushed into a loofah and used in the shower. I love these products, and I am extremely excited to get the Gold FUN!
The Gold FUN is only limited time for this holiday season, but I am hoping that they make it a constant thing. It shares its scent with Honey I Washed the Kids soap, so people will probably beg to have this year-round. LUSH listens to their customers and will bring back wanted products–which I find to be really cool. It’s like LUSHies have a say in the company. I love it! Basically, I’m drowning with excitement about this Friday. I already have my list of 15+ products that I can’t wait to smell in person and probably take home. By my next post, my love for LUSH will be renewed once again, and I will be able to share with you all of my goodies!
