Another aside about Lush’s “fresh fruit purées” now that I have an ingredient list with INCI names…

Sorry I had to take a break in the Lush duplications, but I finally received my American Pie solid body conditioner and an American Cream solid body wash, and had to address what I saw on the ingredient list they sent me. Point of Interest: The solid body wash is way too fragranced! I love…...
