In this post I will share my favourites for August, which is all about skincare.
Previous I posted about books I was reading, music I liked and series I was watching, but I felt like I wasn’t giving enough information about the favourites I picked.
From now on I will chose a favourite and share more specific information with you about what the product is, what you can use it for/do with it and why it is my favourite – this month it is LUSH.
For any of you who don’t know LUSH cosmetics – here is some background information:
LUSH is created by Mark Constantine and Liz Weir. They met in the 1970s and started their own business selling natural hair, skincare and beauty products. Their business received the name LUSH in 1995 as a result of a name competition.
LUSH stands for being fresh, green and verdant.
After the start up in England, LUSH went international in 1996 when another shop was opened in Vancouver.
These days LUSH is a brand that fights animal testing, is 100% vegetarian, offers handmade products in environmentally-friendly packaging and helps those who need it most through several charity funds.

None of these products or ingredients where tested on animals.
Why are these my favourites?
The face- and footcream are my favourites because they keep my skin in good condition. When I moved to Australia, my skin had to go through a big change.
For my face, it was mostly the amount of sun and sunscreen which resulted in an emergency treatment. When your skin is exposed to the sun, it is very important to take extra care. And not alone in summer, the cold of the winter also made my skin desperate for some extra love. This face cream from LUSH definitely helped me out!
For my feet the biggest change was walking around without shoes 75% of the time. In Australia I either wear thongs (flip-flops) or walk around barefoot. The result of this is that my feet have to endure raw grounds. The best way to repay your feet after a long day is with this cream. It makes your feet soft again and the smell is delicious.
And an amazing coincidence – there was a big reopening of Lush in Vancouver. Their first ever international shop turned 20 and that had to be celebrated.

LUSH is an amazing brand. They not only have great products, they also work hard to make this world a better place.
So treat yourself and help LUSH at the same time – it’s a win win combination.
Lots of love,
