Last Thursday evening the fabulous Miss West End Girl invited me along to a little blogger event she helped organise at Lush on Sauchiehall St. I’ve not had much experience of Lush and was more than pleasantly surprised. I never realised that Lush are entirely handmade in the UK, cruelty free, completely vegetarian and lots are even vegan friendly.
On the night we were told about about the fancy skincare products on offer. I always had Lush down as a bath bombs and bubbles kinda store. I hadn’t realised they offered fresh face masks, which are kept on ice, and specialist facial cleansers and toners. We had a little go at making some fresh ‘cupcake’ face masks on the night. It felt and smelt a bit like baking but I suspect wouldn’t have tasted like it. I’m planning trying mine out this weekend, look out for that instagram pick. Next we were talked through all the facial cleansers, the girls suggested I try out Let the Good Times Roll as its best for dry skin and helps with blackheads. I’ve been using it all week and seen a noticeable difference in my skin.
The girls that took the event were all about Lush. They clearly love working for the store and have a wealth of information. They were very excited to take us through some new Lush products about to be released like Sakura the new spring bath bomb and Ice Blue a peppermint soap perfect for awakening you in the morning. They also told us all about the new Lush Kitchen, an interactive kitchen in Dorset making different limited edition products everyday, exciting stuff!
We got an amazing goodie bag and I’m well and truely a Lush convert now. I even tried out my first ever bath bomb last weekend.
