All-inclusive beauty campaign reiterates the fact that love transcends gender

Lush Cosmetics

Lush Cosmetics is no stranger to pushing boundaries. That's why we love them.

Their most recent campaign for Valentine's Day show couples bathing together. Gay couples, straight couples, interracial couples and lesbian couples - just couples.

The campaign officially launched on 19 January and, to kick things off, the progressive beauty company posted a shot of a gay couple together in a bath tub enjoying (what we assume to be) a bubble bath courtesy of Lush’s epic bath balls.

They followed this picture by posting one of a lesbian couple. The Huffington Post notes that the caption was a nod to those who participated in the recent Women’s Marches: “To everyone marching today, time for some well deserved bubbles!”

Always pushing the boundaries of advertising, last year Lush launched their Go Naked campaign in Australia. The international ethical beauty brand attempted to promote their packaging-free, eco-friendly beauty products, instead they were shot down for going too naked. Some even called their ads pornographic.
