It had been a while since I bought some Lush goodies – I always try and ensure everything’s used up before I buy anymore – so when I was passing through Stratford, I couldn’t help but quickly walk around Westfield and a grab a few bits. I have since been to a Lush store on consecutive weekends, I’m an addict.
I absolutely love the bubble bars – they turn the water a really bright, uplifting colour, smell absolutely gorgeous, produce loads of bubbles and leave my skin super soft. At £4.50 each, they’re a total bargain in comparison to the bath bombs, as you can use them multiple times – my Brightside bar lasted seven baths (that’s 64p per use)! I bought the comforter on the basis that I loved Brightside, plus this one is pink: bonus.
Lush say: Berry yourself under a fruity blanket... Cassis absolute gives a distinctive blackcurrant fragrance, while bergamot adds an uplifting note.
The Mr Bumble knotwraps were one of my fave gifts, so I was disappointed to see that within the Lush gift overhaul, they’ve since been discontinued. Instead I bought the Buttercup gift box, which contains the Honey I Washed the Kids soap, as well as the Butterball bath bomb. Honey I Washed the Kids is my favourite Lush soap – I just love its sweet toffee goodness. I’ve never used the Butterball so I’m looking forward to giving that a go.
Lush say: If you have dry, sensitive or irritated skin, this is the bath bomb to replenish it. Once the cocoa butter pieces have melted, your skin will be coated by a light buttery film that smells good enough to eat.
As I went to pay, I was asked if I’d like to pay £1 to buy the Charity Pot – a 10g sample of Lush’s hand and body cream, with proceeds going to charity. I always carry a hand cream in my bag and this one’s perfect for on the go, so I decided to try it out. It can also be purchased in 95g (£6.95) and 240g (£12.95). It has a rich formula, meaning it soaks in to the skin, leaving you soft. The little pot goes a long way too – I’ve had mine for two months!
Better still, when I was paying, the cashier said I had a ‘friendly face’ and gave me a generous sample of Rockstar soap – another product I’m yet to try. It’s a beautiful shimmery pink and smells sickly sweet: a cross between vanilla, rock and candy floss. It’s definitely up my street! Thank you Olly @ Westfield Stratford for letting me sample one of your fave products, I’m sure it’ll be mine, too!
