Beauty brand LUSH Cosmetics recently launched a 16-item collection of vegan bubble bars curated specifically for reducing anxiety. The collection features brand new bubble bars and LUSH classics, including Big Bottle of Calm (a new take on the classic scent that features lavender and chamomile); Mermaid Tail (a two-for-one with a soothing bath oil at the tail and a crumbly, bubble base); and The Big Comforter (an extra-large 2.2 pound version of LUSH’s best-selling bubble bar good for up to six baths). The collection also includes crayon- and ladybug-shaped bubble sticks that are entertaining for kids.
“Taking care of your mental, emotional, and physical health is a simple concept, but oftentimes overlooked. Given what’s happening in the world right now, self-care is so important as it’s essential to improving moods and helping to reduce stress and anxiety,” LUSH Brand and Product Expert Erica Vega told VegNews. “Bathing is a great way to not only soak up a few precious minutes of solitude but boost your mind, help unwind after a long day, or soothe aching muscles. We recommend putting your phone in the other room, lighting a few candles, crumbling up a bubble bar and relaxing in a bath filled with the grounding and calming scents—like lavender, patchouli, sandalwood and sage—to help you feel more at ease.”
Earlier this month, the brand closed all 258 of its North American stores to do its part in stopping the spread of COVID-19 and has since moved to an online-only model. Through April 30, 2020, LUSH is offering free shipping on all purchases over $40.
