Lush's New Package-Free Line is Good for Your Skin—And The Planet
Luxurious handmade products, zero waste. Lush's newest line delivers a dose of sustainability to your skincare regimen.
01/17/19—We take special care to invest in quality products for every beauty and skincare need, but the plastic packaging they come in rarely warrants a second thought. Tomorrow, handmade cosmetics company Lush will launch a new naked skincare line in stores and online—and it's all package-free.
No, those beautiful bars aren't hand soap. They're facial oils, cleansing balms, and under-eye masks, and they're all part of Lush's eco-friendly initiative to create skincare products without disposable packaging.
Here's a rundown of some of the exciting new products you can expect to find in Lush's vegan naked line, plus tips for how to use them.
Naked Facial Oil
Even if you are prone to oily or combination skin, facial oil can help promote a clear, balanced complexion. Lush's facial oils in solid bar form are designed to melt upon contact with skin. Just swipe the bar over your face (or warm it up with your hands first), then rub it in.
The Amazon Primer Naked Facial Oil ($12.95, shown above) uses cupuaçu butter, murumuru butter, andiroba oil, and arrowroot powder to simultaneously hydrate and mattify skin. The collection includes three more facial oils: a softening Banana Skin Naked Facial Oil ($14.95), a brightening Argan Naked Facial Oil ($12.95), and a clarifying Light Touch Naked Facial Oil ($12.95).
Witch hazel is having a major beauty moment this year. The Mortal Kombu Under Eye Mask ($1.95) combines the multitasking skincare ingredient with green tea and Japanese seaweed for a gentle de-puffing treatment.
If you aren't a fan of that squeaky-clean, tight feeling after washing your face, these cleansing balms promise to remove makeup and grime without stripping moisture away. We're most excited about the Jade Roller Naked Cleansing Balm ($5.95) since it massages, clarifies, and refreshes skin with tingly peppermint. Lush is rolling out three more cleansing balms: a relaxing Sleepy Face Naked Cleansing Balm ($5.95), an exfoliating Gritti Politti Naked Cleansing Balm ($5.95), and a glow-boosting Tea Totaler Naked Cleansing Balm ($5.95).
With fewer than 10 ingredients, this vegan version of Lush's beloved Ultrabland facial cleanser washes away impurities while brightening skin. Swipe the bar of Like A Virgin Naked Cold Cream ($5.95) onto your face, massage it in, and gently remove with a damp cloth.
