Just like the Tin Man needed to be oiled up every once in a while, inked skin also demands some TLC. Thank goodness Lush just released a balm called Elbow Grease (£6). As the name implies, this product was originally intended to moisturise elbows (but we all know that dry skin doesn't discriminate). Lushies already know and love Elbow Grease Moisturising Bar, but this new update to the line makes the popular formula portable and travel-ready.
A mix of cupuacu, murumuru, and illipe butters works together to hydrate skin, fight flakiness, and keep ink looking fresh. While we love how Lush is throwing some much-needed beauty love in the direction of tattoo care, even virgin skin can get in on the Elbow Grease action. This magical, multipurpose balm also works wonders on reducing the itchy effects of skin conditions like eczema or psoriasis.
If this news is so exciting to you that you want to brand your body with the Lush logo or a celebratory bath bomb, you're in good company, because that's a thing people do now!
