The only problem with Lush's all-natural, smells-good-enough-to-eat cosmetics and bath products? The prices aren't exactly recession-friendly, especially for something that's technically going to end up down the drain. But, just like the chocolate in the Chocolate Whipstick Lip Balm, it's OK to indulge every once in awhile, right?
Check out some special events at Lush locations in Bethesda and Tysons this month:
Saturday, June 13
Montgomery Mall, 7101 Democracy Blvd.
You probably never thought about splurging on Dad at Lush, but consider indulging him in some all-natural shaving cream, soap or shampoo. You know he's always willing to spend his own money on gadgets, after all. RSVP to email@example.com and spend $40 to get a goody bag. Remember to enter your dad's name into the Daddy-O raffle, too.
Here Comes the Bride!
Saturday, June 20, noon-5 p.m.
Just about ready to go all bridesmaid-zilla on your friends? Don't take it out on the bride. (Even if she deserves it, fingernail scratches are not a good luck for the wedding day.) Indulge in some calming effects for yourself. Buy a True Love or True Romance gift for a special treat! RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org and spend $40 to get a goody bag.
Ice Ice Baby
Saturday, June 27, 1-5 p.m.
Freshen your footsies with minty Fair Trade Foot Lotion, or toss a shower jelly into the freezer. Show up at the store to sing Vanilla Ice's “Ice Ice Baby” and get an extra surprise. Hey, you've earned it. RSVP to email@example.com and spend $35 to get a goody bag.
Summer Solstice Shindig
Saturday, June 20, 1-4 p.m.
Tysons Corner Galleria Macy's, 2001 International Drive
