I absolutely adore Lush Cosmetics, which is not at all obvious from the title of this blog. I remember first going into a Lush store with school friends when I was in my early teens. I can’t remember actually buying anything though. Back then I didn’t appreciate the company, I didn’t know that in my early twenties, Lush would be a much needed lifeline. I dread to think what my life would be like if I hadn’t have gone down rainbow road, the road that lead me into becoming a full blown Lushie…
Every time you get close to a Lush store even if it is out of sight, you know it is nearby. Lush do not advertise at all, they are 100% eco friendly and solely rely on word of mouth, customer to friend. I LOVE how identifiable all of their stores are just because of their famous Lush scent. Looking at it from a business point of view it’s genius marketing.
Lush’s products sell themselves too. Once you’re hooked on just one product you won’t be able to walk past a store without popping in ever again. It’s a bit like when you are out and about and someone walks past you with chips smothered in Salt & Vinegar, you just can’t resist getting a bag of your own.
Back before I became a hardcore Lushie I ignorantly thought Lush only sold bath bombs and soap. Don’t get me wrong, I loved a bath bomb but my Mum doesn’t like anything weird in her bath so when I was still counting home as her house (meaning us both sharing the same bathroom) I just avoided using any fancy products. I now realise this was a huge injustice, I had missed out on so many years of Lush… I well make up for it now though!
Ever since moving into my own house I have been able to fully embrace Lush Cosmetics with no limits, out of that came Lush Upon A Time.
Once you’ve visited a Lush store there really is no way of forgetting the experience, there’s just something about the products and the shops atmosphere that makes you so happy, it’s addictive and leaves you wanting to go back even if it is just for a quick browse.
I know other companies have tried to do spin off’s of bubble bars and bath bombs etc but let’s be honest, Lush outshines every other cosmetic company out there. When it comes down to natural, cruelty free products that are exciting, fresh and handmade with love, Lush Cosmetics is where the talent’s at.
Welcome to my blog, I hope you like Lush because if you don’t you’re in completely the wrong place. 😉
