I Now Have The Softest Skin EVER Because Of These LUSH Products

Arielle Benasillo
Arielle Benasillo is a 23 year old New Yorker who's passion for makeup is real. Growing up with both parents as hair stylists, the skill ran in the family. She recently graduated from Make Up Forever Academy New York certifying her in beauty & fashion, theatrical, special effects makeup and body painting. Arielle is now a freelance makeup artist working on photo shoots, weddings and events, as well as being employed at Salon S for makeup artistry. On her free time she enjoys traveling, being outdoors, froyo night with her roommates, and taking advantage of bottomless brunch in Manhattan with friends.

Sooo, I just got back from a trip to California. It was amaaazing…but my skin? Not feeling so amazing when I landed on the West Coast. Luckily, I was staying with a friend and I stole a bit of her LUSH mask to get some moisture back into my skin. The outcome of this — besides my skin glowing and feeling more rejuvenated than ever — has inspired me to share my must have LUSH products.


Let me tell ya’ll about LUSH Cosmetics: 

LUSH cosmetics is a cruelty free brand HANDMADE with ALL organic fruit, vegetables and essential oils. It goes past this though. They’re the real deal. Each product has a sticker on the bottom telling you the name of who made your product, so they ain’t lyin’.

I absolutely love it. I can honestly go on and on about how much I love them for what they stand for, but I’ll let you just read it from the source itself if you’d like.



Now let me tell ya’ll about my faves:

Lip Scrub – $9.95

It leaves your lips so LUSH-ious. I mean most lip scrubs do their job just fine, but there is one thing that separates this one from the rest. The best part about this lip scrub is that you can lick it off — game changer.

Mask of Magnaminty – $13.95

This is that amazing stuff I used in Cali and had to buy for myself as soon as I got home. As soon as it hits your skin you feel refreshed, really! This is a cleansing mask that will give you a deep clean and leave you with rejuvenated skin. It’s intense yet very subtle and has all natural ingredients, so it shouldn’t irritate. Use this product weekly to achieve a damn good glow. I would recommend purchasing the smaller size because it has a four month life span and they say to discard after the date on product.

Bath Bomb – $6.75

Although I don’t take too many baths, there is NOTHING like a LUSH bath :). Ahh so calm, sexy, fun, quirky — whatever you want your bath to be. Every single bath bomb has essential oils fizzing all up in your water. And can we talk about how beautiful your water looks? It’s legit art.


Buffy Body Butter – $12.95

Massage the buffy body butter all over wet skin in the shower or bath, and you will not believe the difference it makes when you dry off. Your skin is so damn soft. Buffy is one of its top sellers and after one try, you’ll totally understand why! Ground rice, almonds and beans are added to act as exfoliates while the cocoa and shea butter moisturizes your skin.



Skin Drink ($24.95): I’ve heard a lot of people rave about this product, so I gave it a go. At first I wasn’t into the smell, but you’ll totally be okay with it when you realize what this stuff does to your skin! This moisturizer is so nourishing! It’s great for people with dry skin, or even for those who get that dehydrated skin in the winter, or anytime your skin is tight and craving moisture..basically it’s good for anyone. What’s in this skin cocktail that makes it so nourishing? Rose petal extract, fresh avocado and aloe vera extract. Now that’s what I’m talkin’ about.
