Recently, i was lucky enough to get an invite to the Lush Ethics blogger event. Being a recent (i know, this is blasphemous) convert to Lush i'm always super excited to see what new products they have coming out and i love finding out about the stories behind them. So, the ethics event was perfect as it was all about finding out about fighting animal testing, their naked and self preserving range and some exciting new fathers day products (which i know for a fact Owain would use if i bought them so watch this space!).
When we arrived we were greeted very warmly (as always) and were advised about the different things which were on offer for us that evening. Me and a few fellow bloggers - and down right amazing people - headed over to Fi at the cosmetics stand and were introduced to their amazing range of perfume. Apparently, after a few questions and some good sniffing of a few perfumes, i was told i should be wearing Lust. Such a lovely smelling perfume! Afterwards we had a go at picking out the 3 colours which we were most attracted too. Underneath the colours were describing words - I got Success, Confidence and Glamourous. Whats amazing about Lush is that they don't test on animals and they even offer a Lush prize of £250k to anti animal testing innovations! Talk about caring!
Then food called. Lush had stocked up on some fabulous vegan treats for us including Humpit, The Very Friendly Cupcake Company, Moon Unit Tea Emporium and Fermental and oh my god were the good! I am very fond of hummus and i think a visit to the Humpit is on the cards VERY SOON....
After this we headed over to Sye and the fabulous bath bomb making station to make a butter ball. I did this at the last event too so i like to consider myself as an expert now. All of Lush's products are made fresh and hand made everyday. They even put a sticker on everything to tell you when to use it by and who made it and when they made it!
The lovely Gabi gave us loads of information about the new Naked range where the packaging has completely gone and while they're the same great products, they are also better for the environment. I've come to realise everything Lush is better when it's brightly sitting there on the side of your bath. Not so good when your boyfriend uses them! The range is also self preserving which means it will last longer and won't harvest bacteria (ewwww).
I wasn't lucky enough to make my way to the fathers day range (because i spent too much time eating and taking photos, go figure) but from what i've seen online, it's pretty great! Some amazing bath products and as always, some amazing gift boxes packed with products at super affordable prices! If you want to have a browse, look here or pop in store!
Last but not least before we headed out the door we were able to choose 4 items from the Naked range and Samm wrapped them in an amazing knot wrap which we could carry home. Before picking our items Samm asked us what our hair and skin were like so she could recommend products for us! I left with some Fresh Farmacy facial cleanser, a Jason and the argan oil shampoo bar, the Each Peach body massage bar and Rough with the Smooth skin scrub! Pretty amazing if you ask me, i smell like a walking Lush advert.
So not only are Lush products amazingly priced with the best smells and colours in the world but they have pretty great ethical standards.
I think i'm a Lush addict.
