Advantages: Unique, Variety, Ethical
Lush is a cosmetic company that has a worldwide presence. There are currently 600 stores in 43 countries! Lush originated in Poole, Dorset.
The company has strong ethical views and all their products are vegetarian with a large number being vegan too. None of the products are tested on animals and Lush strongly supports human rights, animal protection, environmental values as well as charities. They even have a product named Charity Pot!
It is a fun, lively, vibrant shop that enables customers to be engaged. The employees of Lush stores are friendly and bubbly and offer demonstrations of products which allows you to get more of a visual and hands on view of how the products work and the scent etc as well. I find it a friendly store to visit, with real customer service, unlike many stores I have visitied where the customer service is rather robotic.
On offer is a range of products including: Bath, Body, Face, Shower, Hair, Perfumes.
There are a wide range of various smells and scents on offer and I suggest you take a visit to your local store to find the scents that appeal to you.
Once you've an idea of what products you like there is an online website should you find it easier to shop that way!
Also on the website you will find online only products and the range of Retro items which are products that were previously in store but have now been made exclusive to online!
I personally enjoy going into store to buy my products as I like the atmosphere and seeing if there are any new items on offer, I like to be able to smell the products which is something that unfortunately online websites cannot offer.
Some of my favourite products include Dirty shower gel and perfume, Ladyboy Perfume, Ocean Salt facial scrub which leaves me feeling super clean and refreshed, tasty too! and Tramp shower gel which is exclusive to online. I like the way the products have such strong and powerful smells that stay with you all day. I also enjoy a bath bomb when I take a trip away, the bath bomb fizzes and the bath water turns a beautiful colour depending on which you have chosen and a luscious scent is released and it creates a very relaxing atmosphere.
On special occasions such as Halloween, Christmas, etc. Lush brings out a range of special edition products which are available for a limited time only! On a recent visit to the store I found a product called the Jilted Elf which is a shower jelly that has a divine smell that makes me want to eat it!
They do a range of ready packed gifts which are ideal as presents for Birthdays, or even for a Secret Santa gift, great if you're stuck for ideas.
As well as being a cosmetic store, Lush offers spa treatments which sound heavenly! Why not treat yourself, or perhaps a loved one!
In essence you can kit yourself out for all your cosmetic needs in Lush where you're spoilt for choice!
Summary: One of my favourite stores!
