It’s official, I am now a Lush convert.
After resisting the tantalising aroma wafting from any given Lush store, for some time now I finally decided to go in and see what all the fuss is about. Whilst wandering around looking at all the different products, a very helpful assistant took me under her wing and went through some of the questions I had regarding ingredients etc. I’m not overly keen on anything artificial in terms of fragrance and I do like to know what I’m putting on my skin.
I was very pleased to hear that Lush actually use lots of natural stuff, they don’t test on animals and some of their products are self-preserving, in particular, the Ultrabalm and the Vegelene all-purpose balms which only have three ingredients! I Purchased both of these for my daughter over Christmas. She suffers from chapped lips a fair bit and so I thought she could keep the ultrabalm by her bed and the small vegelene in her school bag.
Also, I had to buy some soap of course, if only to sit in a soap dish in the bathroom looking pretty and smelling nice. Mine are Magic Wand and Shooting Stars, both of which smell gorgeous. I was able to choose a fresh slice from the block for both.
Other products I couldn’t resist are Lush Lip Scrubs. Basically, they’re just sugar mixed with a few other natural ingredients, oils etc.
They smell and taste delicious – If you do get the odd grain of sugar left on your lips it’s ok to lick it off and it does taste good. They leave your lips lovely and soft and are so easy to use. Just run your fingertip across the surface and gently rub across your lips. Rinse and follow with a lip balm or Lush Ultra Balm.
I found the assistants in the three stores I’ve been in so far both very helpful, knowledgeable and only too pleased help with any questions etc.
