On Tuesday evening I was invited to the Bloggers evening at the Lush store in Cardiff to see their new Christmas collection and sample some of the goodies they had. I went with Charlotte, Ffion, Charlotte and Holly. The event wasn’t until the evening so we decided to do some shopping (lots of shopping) and have food before hand. I definitely spent far too much but I blame the others, they are a bad influence!
When we got there (I think we were the last few through the door) it was packed! I didn’t realise how many welsh bloggers there were. We got put into groups and the Lush staff took different groups to areas of the store to go through the products and what was new in. Our group had the lovely Lorna and Jade who were absolutely fabulous at giving us all the info and low down on the latest and greatest items to hit the Lush store.
We started upstairs where the Lip products, Face Masks and Body Conditioners were kept. Lorna and Jade showed us absolutely everything there was to show and I learnt so much from them about what was in the products and which ones were good for what. Very informative! I ended up falling in love with one of their lip tints called ‘Sunkissed‘ which I ended up buying for myself at the end of the evening. I also fell in love with their Body conditioner called ‘Christingle‘ but after spending a fortune in the day I couldn’t spend anymore. It’s on my Christmas list though.
Santa also showed up at the event in the form of his jelly belly. This made me giggle way more than it should have. You can buy little pots of ‘Santa’s Belly‘ and use it as a shower jelly.
That’s one thing I really love about Lush is that all their products have amazing names, they are quirky and fun yet at the heart of it all they provide natural products that are not tested on animals.
One thing Lush are renowned for is their bath bombs! Lorna and Jade tested loads of them out for us so we could see all the colours and the bath bombs fizzing away in water. My favourite of all the ones they showed us though was definitely ‘Stardust‘. This bath bomb fizzes away and leaves multicoloured stars in your bath. How cool is that?
At the end of the night we were given goodie bags to take home which I really wasn’t expecting so that was an amazing surprise. In my goodie bag I had the Candy Mountain Bubble Bar, Holly Golightly Bubble Bar and the Build your Own Santa. I can’t wait to use them all in the run up to Christmas to get me in the festive spirit.
I also ended up buying the Cranberry Festive Face Mask, Sunkissed Lip Tint & the Golden Wonder Gift Set which includes the Golden Wonder Bath Bomb & the Star Dust Bath Bomb. The gift set is supposed to be for a Christmas present for someone else but I don’t know if I’ll be able to stop myself from using it before Christmas on me!
I had an absolutely amazing time at the event, a massive thank you to Urika, Jade and Lorna who made it so incredible!
