Advantages: A large variety of products
Disadvantages: There's isn't a store in my town!
I'd often heard people talking about Lush, however I hadn't even heard of the place as there wasn't one in my town.
The first time I went in a Lush store I thought the smell was so over powering and everything looked so complicated and I only lasted a few minutes!
However the next time I went in I paid more attention and noticed the yellow bags which you could pop your bath products in to. I spent a while deciding which bubble bars to buy, they all had cute names, they all looked so pretty and they all had a lovely scent! In the end I grabbed 2-3 bubble bars and wandered over to the counter. The lovely lady behind the counter asked if I wanted the labels on them, and so a little label saying what was inside and a little description of it was placed onto each bag.
This wasn't my last visit to Lush! I have been a couple of times since and the shop assistants are always so friendly. If you have any questions you don't need to be afraid to ask as they have a good knowledge of the products, I believe they do alot of training! They will often ask if you are alright, but not in a 'Hi I'm a salesperson!' type way, there's no high pressure sales here just good friendly advice! I recently bought one of the face masks and the lady behind the counter asked if I'd used one before. I hadn't and she explained how it was best to use it, how to store it (in a fridge!) and where the best before date was.
I love it when I've been to Lush and have a little bag of goodies. I leave the paper bag out and my room smells lovely. It doesn't end there! The yellow bags which once contained your Lush product still smell afterwards, so you can slip one in your drawer or under your pillow to have that nice smell! Some Lush products come in black pots, if you take back 5 black pots to the store you get a fresh face mask free! A good recycling incentive.
The Christmas sales are great too. I spent £20 in Lush the other day and got a huge Christmas gift set worth £20 free! It's so nicely wrapped I haven't gotten around to opening it yet. I do know that Lush don't use standard packaging materials, when you open a Lush gift set you may be surprised to find your Lush items hidden amongst popcorn. Yes that's right, popcorn!
If you love your girly smells and cosmetics then you need to get to a Lush store near you.
Summary: Fresh smelly and pretty cosmetics
