Any one who has gotten a gift or thank-you from the Makeup In The 702 team in the last 5 years has probably gotten a LUSH bath bomb, scrub or other yummy product because we LOVE LUSH!!!!!!!!
It smells AMAZING!!! The scrubs get the job done- for real!! And they use natural and responsibly sourced ingredients in their products- What’s not to love?!?
In the past few weeks I’ve seen some suspect posts on Instagram FaceBook of plants growing our of peoples showers and sinks and didn’t know what to think, so I did a bit of my own online digging and this was the best I found.
Lush’s Wiccy Magic Muscles massage bar contains aduki beans for its superb nourishing and exfoliating purposes. But those users that are lathering up with the bar are finding that if the beans drip into your drain, and gets just the right amount of moisture and humidity (and come on- its the shower…..moisture and humidity is PERFECT) they could sprout their very own little plants. A shower garden!!
Lush Diva Extraordinaire, co-founder and product inventor Helen Ambrosen told BuzzFeed: “We use organic aduki beans to create a texture in the massage bar, so that you’ve got small bead like shapes to massage the muscles. In order for the beans to germinate they must of been left in the shower for a few days. The results you get just go to show how fresh the ingredients really are.”
We are with Helen!!! Knowing the damage that plastic micro beads are wrecking on the environment, I am far more comfortable with the potential of sprouts in my drain than pollution in my water ways.
