Life’s a beach this summer thanks to the NEW Limited Edition Beach Box Gift Set ($29,95) from LUSH!  Perfect for anyone with a summer birthday, as gift for the BBQ or pool party host/hostess, or as a friendship gift for that friend going on a beach vacation. This box has all the ocean-inspired essentials you’ll need to get squeaky clean, smooth skin and sexy, wonderfully scented hair. Ya know, I think this is great for the person that CAN’T get to the beach this summer–you can bring the beach to their bathroom!

I had to opportunity to try three of the products in the set.

The gift set contains:

Ocean Salt Face & Body Scrub  Washing with Ocean Salt is like taking your face on a trip to the seaside for an invigorating splash in the water. Fresh avocado and coconut hydrate thirsty skin.  This is both refreshing and conditioning and I haven’t stopped using it since it arrived on my doorstep! It’s gentle enough to use on your face;  the vodka and lime help clear blackheads and clogged pores. I do prefer to use it on my body though, since my skin is becoming more sensitive as I age. This reminds me of my childhood at the beach in Southern California. Mom would make us use the outdoor showers to wash off the sand and salt before we got into the car for the ride back home. Something about this just takes me back to that particular memory. The stuff is amazing!

 Sea Spray This sea salt, sea water and seaweed spritz holds hair in place, adds shine and gives body for a beach-beautiful look. A gorgeous orange flower, grapefruit, neroli and rosewood blend perfumes the spray. I’m quite surprised that I like this, it adds some much needed texture to my fine hair and gives it some body. I’m kinda of stunned at how much this helps my limp hair!

Seanik Solid Shampoo – Soften locks and add shine with this mineral-rich, sea salt volumizing shampoo. Made with the best ingredients from the sea; softening Irish moss seaweed, and Japanese nori seaweed. Okay, I was BLOWN AWAY with this solid shampoo. I’ve never tried a solid shampoo from LUSH, or any other brand for that matter. I’ve always been skeptical of them. I was convinced a solid bar would be waxy, sticky and generally yucky, plus who wants to rub a bar of soap on your head? SO NOT TRUE! Not knowing the proper way to use solid shampoo, I took it out of the container, wet it and rubbed my hands with it like you would any bar of soap, then put the lather on my head–this process worked great. The lather is rich and creamy (not at all like soap) and it smells heavenly!! My hair is soooo soft, not tangled, and shiny! I wish I had smell-0-puter because this scent is fabulous!! Mimosa and jasmine oils give it the scent of tropical flora that lasts all day long!! I’m hooked and will be re-purchasing when this runs out.

Dream Cream Lotion – This best-selling product contains every ingredient nature makes for soothing skin. A calming blend of oat milk, lavender and chamomile care for irritations, reduce redness, and banish blotches. Olive oil and cocoa butter are effective for dry skin. I haven’t had the opportunity to try this yet, but I definitely will!!

Sea Vegetable Soap – Sea Vegetable is made with skin softening seaweed with a crust of stimulating sea salt to give your body a good scrub down. Sounds promising!

 Bottom Line: Everyone deserves to go to the beach at least once this summer–make sure your friends experience the ocean with the LUSH Beach Box!!

Prime Beauty Grade: A  Love, love, love!! This is limited edition so make sure to stock up so you can got to the beach all year round!
