Lush Butterfly Kiss Review and Giveaway! - Holiday Buying Guide Pick

This giveaway is now CLOSED. Thank You so much to our wonderful sponsor LUSH Cosmetics! We would love to work with you again!  Remember: There are still some great giveaways active on the upper right hand side of the page!



---Ascending Butterfly's Editorial Team


˙·٠•●♥ Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ ♥●•●•٠·˙˙·٠•●♥ Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ ♥●•●•٠·˙˙·٠•●♥ Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ ♥●•●•٠·˙







Are you a LUSH?  Because I am!

Yes it's hard to admit, but I must come CLEAN. I am now a LUSH. I am no longer a LUSH virgin and what a way to start, with a Butterfly Kiss! A Butterfly Kiss kit that is!

Twilight isn't the only one out there with DIE HARD FANS. Lush Fans are loyal too and testimonials would take more room than we have here, that's for sure!

I'm not sure what I fell harder for, the description of this kit, the products it contains or the packaging! Yes, that's right option (D) All of the above is correct! Here is the description:

Butterfly Kiss

We imagine if a butterfly swooped down and kissed you on the cheek it would smell of roses and feel soft as silk. Give a Butterfly Kiss to someone you think deserves to feel just as soft and smell just as sweet. They'll enjoy four delightful floral baths - two bath bombs packed with flower petals (one even has silver church bells inside to make you feel as though you're prancing around in the English Countryside) and two bubble bars for soft, fragrant bubbles.

Contains:

English Countryside 6.3 oz., Tisty Tosty 3.1 oz. (Featured Ingredient in Tisty Tosty is Rose Absolute" Our which comes from the flower petals of the damask rose), Amandopondo (shares the Featured ingredient Rose Absolute but also contains lemon and orange citrus scent)  3.1 oz., A French Kiss 3.1 oz (This luxurious French Herb Bubble Bath boasts Lavender as a featured ingredient).
 
But there is something else that really resonates about LUSH, this kit, and it's packaging that must be shared here:
 
Naked products in gifts are wrapped in cello bags for safe transit. Our cello bags are made from renewable wood-pulp and certified for home composting; re-use them or pop them in your bin to decompose. We proudly use Enviro-fill to pack up all of our gifts. It’s made from corn, wheat and potato starch (all renewable and abundant resources) and dissolves in water. Reuse it or put it in your compost! Our beautiful paper gift wrap and paper ribbons are made from 100% post-consumer waste. Continue the giving by re-using on another gift or, if you’ve ripped it in excitement, pop it in the recycling bin to be reincarnated next year.
 
No wonder this kit is considered a LUSH 'Cult Classic'! It's clean and 'green'
 
I could go on and gush some more, but instead I will remind you all that this kit is an editor's pick and has made our Holiday Buying Guide! (Lush has also made me a crazy new convert! If only I could review a new kit a week.....Hmmm........) I'm sure anyone on your list would be delighted to find this perfectly wrapped box of 'bathly delights' under the tree!

  108. I follow! I have a blogspot, also detailoring on there. My email is detailoring AT gmail DOT com.

    I've never used LUSH before, but the Soft Coeur Massage bar sounds awesome. Partially because I'm from Coeur d Alene (Heart of the Lake), and partially because it's a very awesome idea! (And it's chocolate scented!)
