Origins Gloomaway Collection

Everyone needs a pick-me-up now and again. That’s why Origins is happy to reintroduce the Gloomaway™ Collection, bath and body treats designed to brighten your day and liven your spirits. Back by popular demand, the collection features Grapefruit essential oil paired with Field Mint and Sweet Orange. Found over 300 years ago on the tropical paradise of Barbados, Grapefruit essential oil is used today by aromatherapists to calm nervous exhaustion and produce an uplifting, joyous and balancing environment.

Gloomaway Grapefruit Body Mist ($25.00 for 4 fl. oz.)

With its exuberant, fruity essential oil blend, this spirit-lifting body mist leaves skin lightly fragranced with the all-natural key notes of energizing Grapefruit, Orange, Tangerine and Field Mint. Light enough to be layered with other Gloomaway™ products, this uplifting body mist ushers in feelings of optimism and contentment that last throughout the day.

Gloomaway Grapefruit Gumballs ($5.00 for 20)

For immediate happiness that you can taste, these Gloomaway™ gumballs freshen breath and brighten the mood. The uplifting, all-natural citrus flavors of Grapefruit and Orange sparkle on the tongue, helping soothe and balance nerves.

Gloomaway Grapefruit Body Wash & Bubble Bath ($21.00 for 8.5 fl. oz.)

This mood-brightening bath buddy doubles as a body wash and bubble bath. When worked into wet skin or poured into a running tub, it generates a generous and fragrant foam. With the citrusy scent of Grapefruit, Field Mint and Sweet Orange, you emerge from bathing with a clean body and a fresh mind.

Gloomaway Grapefruit Body-Buffing Cleanser ($20.00 for 5 fl. oz.)

Sometimes a wash alone just isn’t enough. In addition to cleansers derived from Palm and Coconut, this multi-purpose exfoliating cleanser also grinds away grime with Crushed Apricot Seeds. Skin emerges soft, smooth, and sweetly scented.

Gloomaway Grapefruit Body Souffle ($27.50 for 7 oz.)

This rich, body buttering souffle finishes off your shower and bath experience with a deeply moisturizing layer of fragrant creme. With nourishing Olive, Grape Seed, Rice Bran and Apricot Kernel Oils, it surrounds the body in a cocoon of moisture and extends the uplifting experience long after application.

Gloomaway Grapefruit Bath Bar ($13.00 for 10.5 oz.)

This inviting, 100% vegetable-based soap makes bathing a breeze with the enlivening scents of Grapefruit, Field Mint and Sweet Orange. It features skin softening Glycerin to leave skin feeling silky. Just lather up with water in your hands or a wash cloth and enjoy a carefree clean.

Availability: July 2009. Bath Bar, Body Souffle, Body Wash, and Body-Buffing Cleanser available now at Origins.

P.S. – OMG, I am in LOVE with the name of this launch. It just tickles my fancy! Maybe it was because I once adored Eeyore (yes, from Winnie the Pooh!), and it reminds me of him… Gloomaway! Love it.

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!

New ($9.25 for 1.9 oz.)

Add some spice to your life with New solid shampoo. Massage the red lather all over your head and soak in the heat. Cinnamon and clove oils warm and stimulate your scalp and fill your shower with the smell of cinnamon hearts. Great for those suffering from hormonal hair loss as the scalp-stimulating essential oils encourage your follicles to hang on in there. (Vegan!)

Seanik ($9.25 for 1.9 oz.)

Don’t let Seanik’s compact size fool you. This little puck of joy buffs and shines like no liquid can. A couple of swipes worked up into a lather to moisturize the scalp, breathe life into the lifeless, and shine your hair like a champ. Economical and easy to use, Seanik’s citrus and seaweed combo enriches and enlivens while its fragrance entices all who cross your path. (Vegan!)

Ultimate Shine ($9.25 for 1.9 oz.)

A lovely white shampoo bar with gold sparkly bits (not loads, just enough to leave a couple of sparkles in your hair), Ultimate helps hair shine by using spicy elemi and ylang ylang oils to balance your scalp’s oil production. Deliciously sweet violet leaf oil is said to relieve anger and anxiety so you can shine socially too. (Vegan!)

American Cream ($8.75 for 3.3 fl. oz. or $26.65 for 16.9 fl. oz.)

American Cream is a conditioner like no other. With honey and vanilla to soften and fresh strawberries and oranges to add shine, it takes on the toughest tangles and roughest frizz, all the while smelling like a sweet honey milkshake. you’ll catch a whiff every time you turn your head and wonder where that 1950s diner is.

At the MTV Movie Awards, Vanessa Hudgens looked head-to-toe gorgeous, and her look was extremely subtle–very natural–very your-skin-but-better kind of a look. Here’s how I would recreate it… Continue reading →
