This 4th of July, start the patriotic party in your shower with LUSH! Belt out your own rendition of the Star Spangled Banner, toss in some red, white and blue bubbly (shampoo bars), top it off with a dollop of American Cream (conditioner) and you’ve got yourself a party . . . and hair so shiny it’s sure to set off fireworks!
For all those who will have to hit the friendly skies and/or not-so-friendly roads to reach the party, LUSH’s shampoo bars are perfect for travel. Stored in shampoo bar tins ($2.95) that are made from recycled aluminum, these little wonders make carry-on travel a breeze – no spillage, leaking or bulky bottles to lug around. Because we all know if we are going to be lugging bottles around this 4th of July, we certainly hope they won’t be shampoo bottles!

Seanik ($9.25 for 1.9 oz.)
