Catching up on some brand videos we’ve missed while I’ve been showcasing gardens: first we have How to Use Bubble Bars from Lush, followed by (below the jump) Lily-Rose Depp doing a voiceover for Chanel’s I Am A Chanel Flower (about Grasse jasmine), then Cooking with the Gucci Osteria Chefs: Karime López Makes Gyoza Dumplings (if you click through to YouTube you’ll find the printed recipe, and there are a few more cooking demos on their YouTube channel), followed by We’re All In This Together from Hugo Boss. Last up, from Bvlgari, how to make a Tea Cocktail (again, if you click through to YouTube you’ll find the printed recipe, plus their channel has a few other home activity videos).
From Lush, the reusable Keep It Fluffy bath bubble bar: "If your bath isn't absolutely filled to the brim with big, bodacious and beautiful bubbles...then really, what's the point? Keep It Fluffy is a hot pink bubbler that lets you enjoy bath after bath of our famous Hollywood-style foam. Just run this bottle under the tap to release its heady jasmine, lemongrass and ylang ylang oil fragrance. Then hop in and see why it's always better on the fluffy side of life." $14.95, should be enough for 6-8 baths.
Ah, back to banana: "Step out of your clothes, hop into the shower and lather up with this creamy, dreamy body wash that smells just like fresh-baked banana bread. Then let the ingredients go to work: bananas strengthen skin and oats soothe, leaving you feeling smooth, soft and strong. There's really no better way to spend a Sunday than with Nana Shower Gel." $11 - $57 at Lush.
I am so late (sorry!) that Lush has sold out of All The Wild Things in the US and Canada, but you can still find this charity soap bar in the UK for £5: "We can only imagine the horror faced out in the Australian bush by those who are going out searching for animal survivors amongst the estimated billion creatures killed so far in the fires. In recognition of the overwhelming task faced by this informal Animal’s Emergency Service, we have made All The Wild Things soap. Net proceeds from this limited edition eucalyptus and lemongrass soap will go to animal rescue groups providing emergency first aid and rehabilitation as well as restoring the habitat where the wild things were." Charity Navigator also has a page on the fires in Australia if you'd like to donate directly.
