GIFT OTHERS OR YOURSELF WITH A LUSH© SHAMPOO BAR! There’s no worry about hauling around bottles of shampoo in a gym bag with one of these little “concentrated pucks” that will lather up nicely in a post-workout shower. The website description promises that the bar, “packed full of essential oils and fresh ingredients” will provide up to 80 washes.
I received one as a gift from my busy professional-woman daughter-in-law and tried it after a swim session. The following day my hair was very soft and manageable. I was advised that the conditioning effect of the shampoo oils might mean use of this other product would not be necessary after about a week’s worth of washes. I’ll need to test it a bit longer before fully evaluating its place in my line-up of go-to haircare products. However, it seemed such a terrific discovery for gifting fitness buffs of any gender that it’s being blogged about now.
The bar is available in a number of different ingredient formulations, colors, and scents, each with a funky fun name and purpose. For example, there’s Lullaby for “sensitive noggins”, or Seanik for “big, beachy hair”, and Montalbano for shine.
Environmentally-friendly selling points of such a product are the minimal packaging required (it came in a recyclable small brown paper bag) and the fact that water wasn’t included. On the official LUSHUSA.com website purchase price is identified as $10.95-$13.95. There a tin available for storage at $3.95.
LUSH Handmade Cosmetics Ltd has a foundation in charity and environmental stewardship. The UK corporation’s official “stories” are published on the website, which describe various charitable campaigns. A Wikipedia entry provides other details.
Gifts with prices under $15 that are useful, modern, charitable, and earth-friendly are not that easy to find. The LUSH© shampoo bar might fit an athlete on your list.
