LUSH Beauty – Angels on Bare Skin.

imageWondering around the Waterfront last week, the freshness of a new store caught my eye and I was instantly drawn to enter, knowing deep down that purchases would inevitably be made.

Lush has arrived in Cape Town offering fresh, handmade cosmetics unlike any I’ve encountered. They are all made from organic fruits and vegetables, together with the finest essential oils. They also have a strong stance against using any suppliers that test on animals (which pleases this bunny hugger hugely) and are known for inventing their own unique products with no preservatives and very little waste on packaging.

They talk about happy people making happy soap, and I understand this philosophy more than many. I only want to eat, use and support ‘happy’ and ethically produced products, and Lush can meet these requirements. Add fresh and organic to the mould and I’m sold, or rather – buying.

LUSH has over 850 stores across the globe, and the one at the V&A Waterfront is South Africa’s first.


I have started with their face wash ‘Angels on Bare Skin’, soaps and cream bars, and I couldn’t be happier. First hand I can say how fabulous their products are. As is the humour that comes through in their names and the charm in their service. Happy they’ve achieved!


I was helped by the very charming Philani, who had me at “Hand Massage”.


Their shopping bags are spreading the good word about their No Testing on Animals policy, and I love that!
