On the 6th March, I turned 22. On the 6th March, I went into Lush for the first time ever. As shocked as I’m sure you all are at my lack of blogger-esque lifestyle, I’m here today to share my first Lush experience and the products I picked up.
So I was in Lincoln for my birthday and as soon as I realised my hotel had a bath I told Josh that I just had to go to lush and buy a bath bomb. As we entered the shop, I was politely greeted by a lovely girl who was very chatty. She wanted to help me find something I would thoroughly enjoy and asked me questions about what colours/smells/textures that I was looking for. As I stood there a little bit taken back by all the questions I simply told her I just wanted one of these pretty bath bombs I see everyone raving about – but I didn’t fancy any glitter and I don’t like floral scents. She picked up a few and I gave them a sniff, and pretty much all of them were gorgeous. She also did a tester of a bubble bar and I was just amazed by it that I had to pick that particular one up!
Once I got back to my hotel I ran a bath instantly, I didn’t even think about taking photos for a blog post and I was gutted that this had slipped my mind. So obviously, I had to go back and pick up more so I could write this post and include some personal photos!
One slightly negative thing that I will mention about my Lush visits is that the employees were very overwhelming. On both occasions, I felt like they were trying to force me into buying stuff I wasn’t interested in so I had to find a million and one ways to politely decline what they were trying to force into my basket. There’s only so many times a girl can say “no thank you that’s not what I’m looking for” when being shown shower gels, bath oils and massage bars. I wanted a bath bomb and if I’d have been left to wander around at my own pleasure and give things a sniff, I would have found what I was looking for a lot quicker.
The first time I visited I picked up two bath products and a lip scrub, Josh also picked himself up a bath bomb. The second visit I picked up 3 more bath products for myself and two for my mum, so without any more rambling, lets get into the haul!
The Comforter bubble bar x2
This is the one that I saw in the tester, only the tiniest bit was used and it created so many bubbles and smelt insanely fruity and gorgeous that I couldn’t walk out of there without it. I purchased this one on both my first visit and my second. Josh also jumped into my bath after me when I used this one and says it was his favourite one.
Intergalactic bath bomb
I said I didn’t want any glitter and I got warned this one was like an 80’s disco, but I remember seeing how popular this one was and I admired everyone’s photos of their baths so I popped it into my basket regardless of the glitter. With the peppermint smell and neon colours, there’s no surprise this is so popular!
Butterball bath bomb
This is the one Josh picked up for himself and I must admit it smells incredible. Anything with cocoa butter is normally a huge winner so I was glad that he picked it up! Josh also said it made him feel softer than he’s ever felt before!
Bubblegum lip scrub
Honestly I only picked this up because over the years I’ve seen so many people raving about it. It was a little bit pricey for a sugar scrub I could make myself but it smelt beautiful – I’m a sucker for anything sweet smelling so I was sold!
Big Bang bubble bar
I have yet to use this one but I had to pick it up because of how good it smells and it’s vibrant colours. It has a combination of grapefruit oil and avocado butter so I’m sure it’s going to create luxurious bubbles that smell like some sort of smoothie!
The Experimenter bath bomb
I’m a little sad because this one got labelled as Intergalactic so on the photo the Intergalactic one is actually this one. I’m pretty certain this is another of the really popular ones, with the mix of gorgeous colours, vanilla scent and the added extra of popping candy this is a top contender.
Rose Jam bubbleroon
One of the two I bought for my mum. She loves floral scents and rose is a favourite of hers so I just had to pick this one up for her as it was her birthday on 9th March. She’s yet to receive it because she’s on holiday but I’m sure she’ll love it!
Mum bath bomb
I couldn’t go in there to buy for my mum and not pick up the one that said mum! This one has lemon, sweet orange and rose hints so again, so it’s very up her street. I left these two unopened in photos so my mum could open them herself.
What are your favourite Lush products that I should try? Do you think Lush employees can be a little bit overwhelming or am I alone with that?
Love, Ashley x
