Food in Beauty
For the sake of owning up, this photo was taken when I was spending a Saturday evening with my wife and my sister-in-law Jenna. Now, I’ve never been shy about trying things, but when Jenna and Vita tried to get me to put on a “detoxifying mask” from LUSH (makers of fresh handmade cosmetics), I was admittedly adverse to the idea.
After Jenna forced me into it, I started smelling a lot of things I recognized. Here’s all the natural goodies that go into this crazy little mask. I’m not positive as to which mask this was exactly, but I believe it was this one.
Kaolin, Talc, Lime Juice, Sageleaf Water, Rosemary Leaf Water, Juniparis Fruit Extract, Eggs, Honey, Glycerin, Fennel, Sweet Almond Shell Powder, Parsley, Coriander, Tumaric Root Powder, Clove Flower Extracts, Ginger Root Oil and a whole bunch of other natural crap.
Basically, I thought it smelled like an oversweetened cup of English Breakfast tea. I felt no special effects from this expensive blend of herbs, spices and oils, but Vita and Jenna both raved about it. I’m sure I was glowing.
But what it did do, was leave me curious as to just how often food stuffs are being used in beauty and health products. Since organic and all natural are fast becoming the rage, it’s something I’ll try and keep my eye on.
