Last week in About Face, I talked about how gross my skin gets during the winter—dry, flaky, etc.—and how using scrubs and exfoliants helped reverse that damage. This week, I’m expanding that whole “really into rehab” theme with a variety of products from LUSH. I’ve talked about the brand on About Face a few times before, and I keep returning to the company because of its incredibly wide range of products, many of which boast fresh and natural ingredients that I can’t get enough of. Face masks made of fruit? Soaps with nuts embedded in them? I can’t figure out if I want to use these products or eat them. Probably both.

With summer heat and humidity already upon us, I want products that feel like they’re really making a difference on my skin and hair in a healthy way—the sun is doing enough harm as it is. So with that do-no-harm mentality in mind, I’ve grouped together a number of LUSH offerings I want to experiment with this summer, including soaps, shampoos, moisturizers, and perfumes. Seriously, you can’t read with this list without getting hungry.

For my LUSH picks, read on!
