LUSH Silky Underwear

I've talked about my obsession with LUSH before. It knows no bounds. They are constantly reeling me in with their fabulous products.

This time it's their Silky Underwear dusting powder. Gone are the days when dusting powder was only acceptable for the over-60 set. And let me tell you, if you haven't introduced dusting powder into your beauty routine, now is the time.

Both coasts have been experiencing some serious heat. And I may not have mentioned that one of my lesser qualities is my, ahem, unladylike sweating. I know, it's not attractive, but it happens. This powder is fantastic at keeping you cool and dry even on the steamiest of days.

Tiny bits of cocoa butter have been added to the powder to keep skin moisturized and the cornstarch and kaolin keep you dry. The best of both worlds! The powder is scented with both jasmine and vetivert, but these subtle scents do take a backseat to the cocoa powder (which is not a bad thing).

I like to apply this after I've toweled off from a shower. The canister has seven holes and I highly recommend opening the top so just a tiny sliver of one of them is open, otherwise you'll wind up with powder everywhere. Dust liberally all over your body for a nice subtle scent and to help keep you cool throughout the day. Also don't forget your feet; apply before putting on shoes or sandals, it will keep your tootsies dry and help prevent sweat-induced blisters.


  1. Your sweatiness is nowhere near as offensive as your love of the Yankees. I wish there was a powder that could mitigate that.

  2. In all fairness, she really didn't fully explain the extent of her sweatiness to the lovely readers.

    I'm sure even the most avid Red Sox fan wouldn't want to be sitting next to her on a hot summer's day...and not just because she'd be talking about the complete awesomeness of the boys in pinstripes.


  3. Ah yes, I have the problem of sweating like a guy. It's part of my charm.
