One of the huge perks of moving house was my reintroduction to the bath.
No … I’m not gross or anything.
I’ve only ever had access to showers for the last ten years or so and now my new place has both. This means I could finally try something that everyone seems to be addicts over and I’ve missed out on: Lush. The only thing I know about Lush before was that you could smell a shop before you could even see it. The heady scent of florals, fruits and spices all wrapped up into bottles and balls appears to be a mecca to everyone in my age bracket. Now it was all mine to fully explore.
I was given a great set as part of a leaving present from a work colleague called ‘Bath Art’ with a ‘Dragon’s Egg’ and ‘Intergalactic’ bomb inside. Both look brilliant and smell delicious and I just love all the extra effort that Lush make with their packaging. Every gift box is wrapped up in pre-prepared gift wrapping and it means you can literally hand over the present without doing anything else to it. TWO THUMBS UP!
I also ventured into a branch (in Windsor to be exact) and decided to have the full experience of a Lush shop. The staff were lovely and offered advice wherever they could, even going as far as offering to do a demo of any of the bath bombs I was interested in. I’d also heard great things about their new Sleepy lotion that helps you get a good night’s rest so the immediately went in the basket. It’s now being heavily used by the fella and he loves it. I’ll have to invest in a larger tub to share from now on!
I bought a couple bath bombs (not sure of all the names but I went on smell and wackiness of colours to be truthful) and left with a heavier bag than I expected.
As a first-timer, I have to say that Lush really know what they’re doing. The bath bomb was not only fun to watch as it developed but it was a lovely, relaxing bath time. I’m not naturally a bath kid, having gotten used to years of speedy showers but it was a fab treat. The only minor downside was all the leftover glitter in the bath tub. Must plan a bath time treat the night before I do a bath room cleaning day next time!
I can’t wait to try more Lush products. Any recommendations?
