Last week in London, myself and my friend Hannah headed to the new Oxford Street Lush store after work. Oh My God. It is amazing. If you love Lush as much as I do, then you will literally be in heaven, LUSH HEAVEN, just imagine. Hugely spread across three floors, there is an unreal amount of products to look at, smell and even try out. There is such a lovely buzz in this store, from the customers to the staff, such a fun and friendly atmosphere. Come on in....
If you didn't know, the Lush Oxford Street Store has 240 exclusive products to shop only in this store, which I really think gives this store a special shopping experience. I found the staff super helpful at explaining what products were new and exclusive to this store - so definitely just ask them if you want to try something new and find out what products are actually the exclusive ones. They also explained to me what the different benefits of each face mask were, when I was deciding on one and even allowed us to try out the different bath bombs to see what effect they will have in the bath.
This was us trying the 'Experimenter Bath Bomb'. How absolutely, amazing does it look?
If you are ever in London, definitley head to this store for a browse/shop - you will not be disapointed I swear! I picked up a few little bits to try out, so I thought I would share them with you in this post too. I decided to go for a face mask, a bubble bar, a bath bomb and a bath oil...
'Flowers Barrow Bath Oil' (Exclusive Product - Not Online)
"A delphinium flower melt with brambles, thyme, nettles. Let it go into the bath to create vibrant, lime green waters with geranium and rose oils"
I have actually never tried a bath oil from Lush before but thought this one sounded super relaxing and it looks so cute. I love the idea of having bath filled with petals, so I am excited to try this.
Flowering Tea Bubble Bar (Exclusive Product - Not Online)
"If fragrant, petal filled baths are your cup of tea, look no further! Hold this reusable bubble bar under the tap to fill water with a gorgeous mix of orange flower and jasmine"
To be honest, the sales assistant had me sold when she said this product was like a tea bag, I love tea and I knew I had to have this. She showed us how to use this product in the sink and recommended holding the tap for pressure until achieving the desired amount of bubbles. This product can be reused again and again and at the end there is a surprise, as the bundles of petals inside will release and fill the bath. This also smells insane.
Intergalactic Bath Bomb (Exclusive Product - Online: Here)
'Ever wondered what bathing in deep space would be like? Invite the cosmos into your bathroom with this sexy, interstellar bomb and become guardian of your own galaxy. An awesome mix of refreshing peppermint and neon colour sends your mood rocketing, while popping candy takes you on a trip around the Milky Way. Constellations swirl and pop, creating vibrant lustre vortexes in the night sky. Before you leap too far, rogue layers of vetivert and cedarwood take hold, evoking the warmth of human contact far from home and a hint of 80s aftershave. Return from your intergalactic brief encounter as the grounding scent brings you gently back from orbit.'
WOW. How amazing does that sound. Similar to the Experimenter bath bomb, this is meant to fill your bath with swirls of different vibrant colours, inspired by the galaxy. I haven't tried this yet, but I am sure it will be as incredible as it sounds. You can also see a video on Lush's website of this product in action > Here.
Catastrophe Cosmetic Fresh Face Mask (Online: Here)
A calming and moisturising fresh face mask packed with blueberries, calamine and chamomile, rose and almond oils to soothe and soften the skin. We use wholesome blueberries as they are rich in vitamins and minerals, including the antioxidant vitamins A, C and E that help to protect the skin from damage. Smooth a generous layer of this mask onto clean skin and leave for 10-15 minutes.'
Living in London does not do good things for my skin. The muggy air, the dirty tubes, my skin needed some treatment. This product is designed to calm and cleanse the skin. Just what I was looking for and I have found it honestly amazing. I noticed instant results in my skin, it felt clean, healthier and exceptionally soft and overall left it feeling refreshed. 100% recommend! I can't stop using it.
