I think I may be the one dissenting voice in blogger-land, but try as hard as I like, I just don't 'get' Lush... I'm always popping in there to see if there are any bits and pieces that tempt me, but I usually leave empty handed. I'm never sure what to buy or how to shop there. I have tried, including recommendations from other bloggers, but I just don't 'get' this brand.
In the past decade or so, my Lush purchases and gifts I have received have been the following:
1 bath bomb that got damp before I could use it (but smelled lovely)
1 bath bomb that covered my bath in glitter and left what looked like a dead butterfly floating in my tub (it was a fabric one, but I did get a shock)
1 massage bar (I do quite like this one)
1 packet of Rockstar soap (that I'm using to fragrance my lingerie drawer - I'm not overly keen on the smell)
1 very large bottle of Snow Fairy shower gel - I asked for this for Christmas after reading all the great reviews from other bloggers and thought this would be a good intro into Lush - to me, it smells absolutely disgusting - like medicine!
Maybe it's because I'm not into really sweet smelling beauty products, maybe it's because taking a bath is a very rare occurrance for me (I do shower, don't worry), maybe it's because so many of their products are messy and cluttery or maybe it's because when I was a teenager Lush didn't exist - it was the Body Shop all the way for inexpensive beauty products in my formative years. I'm not sure why, but nothing from Lush is really rocking my world. My job involves me visiting town centres all over the south of England and whenever I spot a Lush, I do pop in to see if there's anything to tempt me - there rarely is.
So ladies, what am I missing out on? Please help me - am I ever going to find anything in Lush that I actually like?! Given I don't take baths and I get through about 2 bars of soap a year (and have about 20 in my beauty storage), please let me know what you think I should take a look at. I could really do with some suggestions, as I'm determined to finally 'get' what all the hype is about!
Thanks in advance for your help! xx
