Following on from my last confessions regarding both Topshop and my guilty pleasures; I have one more big one for you, and you’re not going to like it. Up until recently I wasn’t a massive Lush fan because their shops smell too over-powering to me.
But, after heading to the Lush store* in Crawley in the hopes of having my mind changed forever, they’ve 100% succeeded and I’m now a certified … Lushite? Lusholian? Whatever it might be, I feel I can now send off for my official blogger’s badge because I ♥ Lush.
It was lovely to have a chance to look round and not feel too over-whelmed. I had time to pick everything up and smell it read about all the ingredients. And I got to meet some lovely bloggers, two of whom I’d met before; Katie and Tania!
Mark, Jane and Elena from Lush were also on hand to answer all our questions, let us play with all the products and kindly left the tills open, ya know, just in case!
Their Christmas range is a new one on me, so I have no idea what’s new and what’s not, but here are some of the absolutely gorgeous things I found!
Butterbear and Father Christmas bath bombs:
Snowie, Candy Mountain and Ruby Red Slipper bath bombs:
Santasaurus and Peeping Santa:
Shooting Stars and Santa’s Postbox soaps:
They have so many gift ideas in stunning, brightly-coloured packaging:
Elena gave us a talk about the Lush Christmas bubble baths; Snow Fairy, Lord of Misrule, Rose Jam and Bubbly! They all smelt absolutely incredible and they left my hands feeling so soft 🙂
Mark (the absolute Lush Wizard) showed us how to mix different bath bombs together to make one super Lush bath (Milky Bar and Peeping Santa together is amazing!):
Laura then helped me make my very own butterbear to take home with me! It was a lot of fun, although it was mainly packing powder into a mould!
Before heading home, I picked myself up a a Peeping Santa, So White and Shoot for the Stars bath bomb.
I also got a goody bag ♥ Clockwise from top left: Bubbly, Butterbear, Igloo, Northern Lights, Snowman jelly and Star Dust!
I had such a great evening getting to look round and falling in love with Lush products. There are still some things that I find too over-powering, but maybe in time, I’ll grow to love them as well! I can’t wait to try out some more things 🙂
I’ve already used my So White bath bomb ♥
