How did I miss this?! Admittedly, I don’t do much shopping at LUSH. I always hear such amazing things about the brand, but with my skin being so sensitive to most body products, I figured there was no point depressing myself by taking home any their colorful, deliciously scented products. It would be too disappointing if it didn’t work out!

But all of this changed while on a recent weekend trip with my girls. We stopped off at a mall and I wandered into the LUSH store. Placed right near the front door was their body tints, so I picked up a bar of their Black Stockings body tint, $9.95 to try out as a highlighter on my legs (I’m going to use it this weekend, so expect a review soon!).

In typical Amber fashion, I couldn’t leave well enough alone, and found myself in another LUSH store last weekend. While perusing the store I decided to give their collection of Gorilla Perfumes a whiff, as I’m looking for a new summer fragrance. I was stopped dead in my tracks by their 25:43 fragrance, $39.95. Created by LUSH’s founder in only 25 minutes and 43 seconds (hence, the name) 25:43 contains notes of tonka, lime accord, lemongrass, vanilla, ylang ylang and listsea.

I don’t even know how to accurately describe this fragrance, because it smells rich and sensual, light and fresh, and slightly fruity all at the same time. It’s simply divine! I spent the rest of the afternoon sniffing my wrists (I’m sure I looked like a nut on the mall security surveillance, lol). The scent lingered throughout the evening and by bedtime I knew I had to have it! 25:43 must be mine (I hear that LUSH Silky Underwear is fab, too, so it might be next, lol) so it looks like I’m headed back to LUSH!
