Lush fresh handmade cosmetics is a beloved company of mine. I first discovered their products in 2001, buying online from their Canadian website to be delivered to my humble abode in the US. They later set up shop in Indonesia, but closed them a few years ago, unfortunately. I now get mine directly from their UK online shop.

There are products I’ve been using for more than 10 years, and I will review them separately one of these days. Right now I want to alert you to my latest Lush crush: Fair Trade Honey shampoo. I love honey. I drink it daily in my drinks (tea, lemonade, lime juice, etc), use it for masks a few times a month, and pour it over my various breakfast dishes. When I travel, I search the traditional market and bring back jugs and jugs of honey. IF I live a long, healthy live, honey would probably be the culprit. *hear, hear!* So yes, I love honey: the taste, the smell, the golden color, even the dead bees floating in a raw jar of honey.

As a shampoo, this product do not agree with my head, it leaves my scalp and hair too dry for my liking (as most Lush shampoo products). However, as a body wash? This is DA BOMB!!  I got a small bottle to try, and now I am ready for the 600gr of commitment. The scent is an amazing mix of the smokey, sweet and lush. An absolute pleasure in the bath.

A key ingredient in Fair Trade Honey? Zambian honey. It pleases me no end to know that only a few months ago, my honey wast just dangling over some Zambian forest. Lush did a great video on honey harvesting in Zambia here, check it out.
