Father’s Day, for me, is a time of year that is sometimes pre-fixed with a sense of panic and anxiety – mainly because finding the perfect gift for my father can be an incredibly difficult task.
What do you get someone who already has everything they could possibly want? And how do you indulge that special father-figure without spending a small fortune?
Thankfully, I found Lush present a great solution with their limited edition Father’s Day collection.
The entire collection is scented with beautiful sandal wood essential oil, which is ethically and sustainably sourced with Indigenous communities in Kalgoorlie. It’s actually a beautiful story – Lush only harvest 600-700kgs of certified organic Australian sandalwood per year, an amount that ensures the trees aren’t over-harvested. The wealth created in the Indigenous communities through this partnership is shared around their people, as per their custom, and is helping new businesses to start.
There are some great items to choose from in the collection (or really spoil your dad, and get them all!), and my gorgeous Fiancé, Mitchell, was excited to test them out:
- Smuggler’s Soul face and body scrub: With an intriguing and rich sandalwood scent, this scrub exfoliates with bamboo granules to brighten skin and fresh cucumber infusion cools. Perfect for keeping the skin between beards or stubble looking and feeling great!
- Smuggler’s Soul multi-purpose cream: Use this following the Smuggler’s Soul face and body scrub to condition skin. The sandalwood scent will keep dad smelling great, while cucumer infusion cools the skin and argan oil softens the skin.
- Smugler’s Soul shampoo bar: An especially luxurious hair treatment for dad! This shampoo bar has chuncks of Fair Trade organic cocoa butter scattered throughout this hydrating bar with cleansing lemongrass oil – all with a smoky sandalwood fragrance.
- The Modfather bubble bar: Great for dads who like to unwind after work or gym in the water – this bar crumbles under running water to release a relaxing Brazilian orange oil experience.
- Thanks Dad soap: Upgrade dad’s body cleansing experince with this super soft orange scented soap.
- Superdad bath-bomb: For the superhero dad, this bath bomb is full of guaic wood, sandalwood and olibanum. Just drop into the bath and relax.
