Oh, Yeah, Dust Me, Baby!

A week or so ago while flipping through a magazine I ran across an advertisement for LUSH products. Always in the market for something new and exciting to spice up my daily ablutions, I also checked out the website.

There are a myriad of interesting products, but the product known as Silky Underwear captured my attention. According to the product information and ad caption:

The original, gorgeous luxury dusting powder, made to be worn with (or instead of) your very best undies. This is no ordinary powder, this is to 'talc' as silk is to brushed nylon. It makes your skin feel smooth-like silk (satin not tussah, obviously) because we add tiny pieces of coca butter to the cornstarch and china clay which get absorbed into your skin to moisturize it. We then perfume it with soothing vetivert and scandalously sensual jasmine to give you an appropriately luxurious scent.

As soon as I spied that, I knew I had to have some of my very own.

A store locator revealed a shop in New Orleans; however, as soon as I arrived in the city, I promptly and completely forgot about my need to have this. At least until Susan and I met Karen on Friday night.

It was during a conversation with Karen that she revealed she used to work retail in a store called LUSH. A brief interrogation produced the proper geographical coordinates for this establishment.

As it turned out, when Susan and I found the place on Saturday, we realized we had passed the store no less than three times.

With prize in hand, I later returned to the hotel for a shower and a "dusting."

Ummmm. I like.

This product has the first-ever Feisty Seal of Approval.

So does this mean you're wearing LUSH with or without undies? Inquiring (lascivious) minds want to know...

Oh I lovvve LUSH products. Recently, I got their bath gel that you put in the freezer....you make ice cubes of bath gel. This is heavenly on a really hot day. You just take out a bath gel ice cube, lather up, and cool down!

Gives a whole new meaning to that old pirate phrase, "Moisten the wenches!" I will stop by the shop and gather some booty while I am at lunch in N'awlins today. Yar!

I use Lush products too - try their solid shampoo. They do good internet mail order. They are very expensive here though. Expensive for what it is - no packaging to speak of etc. But the products smell divine!

Ooo, that sounds wonderful. I just ordered some on your recommendation. I love powder with a floofy puff. Thanks for the review.

Glad you had a nice time in N.O. I love that town.
