LUSH Cosmetics don’t just sell bath bombes, you know… They also sell hair care, skincare, make-up, perfume, bubble and massage bars too…
During my lunch break, I headed to my nearest LUSH to try one their massage bars. I was greeted by a lovely Lushie who demoed the Each Peach massage bar on my hand. She rubbed the bar into my skin until it began to melt, explaining all about the ingredients that go into it… She then began massaging the essential oils into my skin – topping it off with a dusting powder.
Although I love the citrussy smell of it and enjoyed how soft it made my skin feel, I opted to purchase the Peace bar instead because I fell in love with the cause… I also knew that my mum would love it because ‘Peace’ is her middle name…
A culmination of the most peaceful ingredients we can find, Peace massage bar is the perfect recipe to settle your soul. We’ve used our new aeration technique to blend Fair Trade organic cocoa butter from the Peace Community in Colombia with Fair Trade olive oil, creating a light, smooth and luxurious massage on the skin. That lovely lavender-chamomile aroma? It’s a combination of four fragrances from our signature Synesthesia massage at our LUSH Spas: Acceptance, Forgiveness, Calm and Content; traits we could all benefit more from. Go on, give Peace a chance.
Okay, so the Peace Bar is a peaceful smelling massage bar that evokes relaxation within you as soon as it absorbs into the skin. Packed with only the best Fair Trade Columbian Cocoa Butter, Fair Trade Shea Butter and Fair Trade Olive Oil, this massage bar is sure to send you to sleep at first contact.
Apparently, the majority of the proceeds of Peace go to the Columbian Peace Community who continue to fight for peace in Columbia.
This supports the self-sustaining farmers who are peacefully protesting the civil unrest in their country.
So, once I finished work, I went home to test out the massage bar on my first client – my mum. I copied the Lushie’s every move to make sure my mum had the best hand and foot massage ever. Like I predicted, she loved the smell, the name, and what it stands for. She also fell asleep mid-massage.
Today was probably the most uncomfortable day of waist training yet, hence why I wasn’t in the mood to take selfies…
I had slept in my waist trainer the night before [and not very well at that] so I was reluctant to take it off for a breather. It’s like getting really far on a project and giving up last minute; something that’s never going to happen – not to me anyway!
I started my day with a minimal breakfast, because I didn’t want to feel sick again [like yesterday] and carried on with my day. I thought it’d be a good idea to go out in my corset for a little walk and bonding session with my brother… Lo and behold it turned into a power-walk up a major hill!
I’ve got to admit that this was harder than anything I’ve ever done. I mean, I’ve worn the corset to the gym before, and it didn’t hurt that much!
Reaching the top of the hill, I felt like I’d broken the majority of my ribs. ‘So this is what it feels like’ I thought.
After that walk, I came home and had a shower, and now’s the time to admit that I haven’t worn it since – only because I sweated so bad in it that I need to clean it before I wear it again…
Oh, I forgot to mention that I’ve noticed a slight improvement in the size of my waist. However, I’m not sure if it’s solely down to wearing the waist trainer OR whether lathering Ann Chery’s Caffiene Cream has also got a vital role to play!
