Spring is on its way, and that means one thing: Easter. With a fresh wave of chocolate treats and egg-shaped confectionery just around the corner, what can you do for the vegan in your life? No fear, another vegan Easter is here!
With 2019 set to be the year of the vegan, going on the hunt for vegan Easter eggs might be the first thought that comes to mind when considering gift ideas. While we know there are some tasty dairy-free alternatives out there, spring isn’t just about chocolate. It’s about rejuvenating, and refreshing, and what better way to do so than with uplifting suds and soaks, so here’s a run-down of some of the treats you can expect to find at Lush this year.
If you’ve got a sweet tooth to satisfy (your own or someone else’s), Chirpy Chirpy Hop Hop will help keep your cravings at bay. With four sensationally-scented bath treats to indulge in, this present is great for someone who likes to reuse. This bold two-way Knot Wrap made from organic cotton houses the products and can also be used as a handy bag afterwards.
Easter pamper hamper
Help a pal who's going #ZeroWaste this spring by treating them to an Easter Basket full of refreshing bath bombs. The basket, wrapped in a Knot Wrap made from organic cotton, can be used for Easter egg hunts and picnics once the lucky recipient has used all of the products.
A glorious baaath
The cocoa absolute and peppermint inside Lamb bomb bomb make for a gloriously indulgent bath. Sink into milky blue waters and emerge feeling silky smooth thanks to protein-rich soybean flour. Life may be bleeting, but at least your skin will be in mint condition!
Hit the showers
Indulge in the moreish buttery popcorn scent of Beak Street shower bomb that surrounds you in the shower. A sweet and spicy Easter treat that will serenade the senses. Massage the softening custard-coloured foam all over your body thanks to potato starch, while maize flour gently exfoliates.
A piece of cake
If you’re looking for smooth lips, the caster sugar, sea salt and Fair Trade organic cinnamon powder in Carrot Cake lip scrub will gently buff and polish your smackers to pout perfection. Its scrumptious maple-syrup-esque flavour is down to carob resinoid, fenugreek absolute, orange oil and ginger, leaving you longing for another taste. Toasted hazelnut oil and Fair Trade organic shea butter hydrate, while orange peel wax leaves a light protective layer on the lips for lasting softness.
A smoothie for soft skin
A newly invented shower cleanser that gets to the root of soft, moisturised skin. Carrot naked shower oil is sulphate and palm-free and can be used as an effective foam-free body wash, or as an extra layer of hydration after soap or shower gel. Let your skin benefit from softening and brightening cold-pressed carrot seed oil, and your senses luxuriate in the sweet scent of Caledonian sandalwood, grapefruit and geranium.
Loco for coco
Break off a piece of Coco sugar scrub, featuring granulated sugar, for silky-smooth skin and let vanilla absolute and vetivert soothe and comfort the senses. This sweet-scented bunny contains unmilled coconut flour produced by a project in Simeulue, an Indonesian island in Sumatra. Locals and activists here are fighting plans for a palm oil factory by showing that coconut harvesting is a more sustainable source of income in an area already threatened with deforestation.
Indulge your skin
After all the vegan chocolate you’re inevitably going to eat, your stomach will probably be thanking you, but your skin may not. Treat any chocolate-induced blemishes with, you guessed it, more chocolate! When it comes to post-Easter skincare, Cupcake fresh face mask has you covered, quite literally. A thick layer of cocoa powder and rhassoul mud to absorb excess oils, and cooling, antiseptic mint is a feast for your skin while also ensuring your chocolate fix stays all year.
