LUSH has imparted delightful new meaning to men’s skin care, oral hygiene and even the word lush with its impressive selection of fresh, nourishing and one-of-a-kind products. You’ll want to play with every one of them.

It’s the season for charcoal, which conveniently absorbs excess sebum and exfoliates the skin. Lush’s Coalface Cleanser hails from sustainable U.K. woodlands, and is infused with aromatic sandalwood and licorice root, which has antibacterial and moisturizing properties. Using Coalface Cleanser is more fun than a mud pie, so dig in and slather. The Dark Angels Facial Cleanser is also a Lush charcoal-based cleansing scrub, with added black sugar for improved circulation and rich, indulgent avocado. It’s so fresh that it comes with a three-month expiration date and a picture and name of the person who made it (my guy looked understandably proud of his work).

With a name like Dirty Toothy Tabs, how can you not be intrigued? These mouth-freshening, spearmint-laden tooth tabs from Lush will foam up just like regular toothpaste, but they’re far more interesting. And they’ll whiten teeth as well. The tabs come in a range of other tongue-pleasing flavors: Atomic (clove and cinnamon), Aquatic (Earl Grey tea, lime, and jasmine), Sparkle (vanilla, lemon, grapefruit), Breath of God (fennel) and UltraBlast (peppermint, spearmint, lavender). You have to applaud the Lush product namers, especially the toothy tab team.

We owe Canada a helluva 21-gun salute for bringing Lush to our land.
