Head to the Beach with the LUSH Beach Box.

Happy July! I'm sure many of you are headed to the beach soon, or sometime this summer. I will be later next week and can't wait! At the beach, comes a whole new beauty routine and LUSH has created the perfect little kit to get you there and back. This is the LUSH Beach Box.

The perfect beauty box for the beach: LUSH Beach Box

Packed with all the ocean-inspired essentials you’ll need to get squeaky clean, smooth skin and sexy, wonderfully scented hair, this set is perfectly portable and packed in a little box with handle. Also, how great would this be as a hostess gift? I know I'd love to be the receiver.

The Beach Box includes:

Ocean Salt Face & Body Scrub – Washing with Ocean Salt is like taking your face on a trip to the beach. Formulated with fresh avocado and coconut (yum) hydrate thirsty skin, while the antibacterial effect of lime and vodka clears pores.
Sea Spray – This sea salt, sea water and seaweed spritz holds hair in place, adds shine and gives body for a beach-beautiful look. A gorgeous orange flower, grapefruit, neroli and rosewood blend perfumes the spray. I think this would be great to use this after the beach to add a little texture and refresh hair.
Seanik Solid Shampoo – You know how you hair can feel crusty after a day at the beach? Soften locks and add shine with this mineral-rich, sea salt volumizing shampoo. It's made with special seaweeds to nourish the hair.
Dream Cream Lotion – This best-selling product contains every ingredient nature makes for soothing skin. A calming blend of oat milk, lavender and chamomile care for irritations, reduce redness, and banish blotches. Olive oil and cocoa butter are especially great for using if you've spent too much time in the sun.
Sea Vegetable Soap – Get the ocean and sand off with this Sea Vegetable soap. It'smade with skin softening seaweed topped with a crust of sea salt to give your body a good scrub down.

LUSH Beach Box sells for $29.95 and is available in LUSH Stores and online at
