Hey Hearters! Even if you don't want to sound basic, if you've used a Lush product before, you've probably loved it (this is not a promo lol). But sometimes, we don't want to spend the money on it. Below I'm going to show you some recipes for copycat Lush products including: face masks, bath bombs, shower jellies, and more. Let's go!
