Kissing My Bubbly Frog: Popping My Lush Cherry

I've been a Lush virgin for a long time. I once ventured in and bought a face scrub I'm not really sure what it did as I put it in the fridge and consequently forgot about it. By the time I remembered it had gone off (boo). Recently I was seeing a plethora of lovely Lush blog posts, I was wooed by the prospect of fizzy pretty bath bombs. So I decided to venture in to the wall of smell that is most Lush shops. I was meandering by the bath bombs and a lovely sales assistant came over telling me she liked my red hair. We chatted all about hair, she had a very fantastic purple fringe. As I mulled over what to get she came up to me with the contact details of her hair extension supplier as we'd been talking about it. Wasn't that lovely? I think that we're so used to really mediocre sometimes bordering on rude service, that when someone is really charming it blows our socks off.

I left the store with a little catalogue. I don't know the range well at all, I just finished reading the little newspaper they gave me free with my purchases and I didn't know they did half the products in it! Shampoo! Hair Dye! I'm amazed.

To properly pop my Lush cherry I decided to go for sheer novelty, and got a very glittery bar and a frog bath bomb.

Very exciting right?

I sort of choked when I saw the price of them. I mean we've all used bath bombs before they're sort of gritty fiascos. But I decided to take the plunge and see what all the fuss was about.

1. Take a very hot bath, duck optional. 

2. Select bath bomb. I went for the frog for the novelty mainly. He has cocoa butter lips apparently.

3. Anchors away! Throw bath bomb and try not to drop camera in bath whilst chronicling the experience.

4. Watch as his little lips whizz around the water. It sort of looks like the Wicked Witch of the West meeeeellllting!

5.Stand back and observe the overall hue of your new bath. Check out the greenness! (Oh and the pink duck).

6. And before you step in something floats up to the surface of the water...what could it be? A little white piece of paper.

Oh Prince Scott I never knew you cared! What a nice little touch though. I climbed in and the bath smelled amazing, and I have no idea if I noticed the cocoa butter but it was really relaxing and definitely fun. I'm sold on Lush I'd love to try more of their pieces.

Much Love

The staff in Lush are always lovely and chatty, such a nice change from the usual high street shop assistants!
I'm quite a recent Lush convert too, I always avoided it for years but I'm not really sure why. Love the look of the frog bath bomb!

You need, yes NEED, to try Big Blue - King of the bath bombs! It's a bit messy to clean up due to the strips of seaweed, but by jeazus, it's worth it! The bath goes bright blue and it feels like you're sitting in blue moisturiser. Just lovely!

Love Lush too. I get the Bath Bombs for the Kids though as I rarely bath. They Love the Ikle Blue Robot, and the Butterball. Butterball is Amazingly moisturising too!

I really enjoy Lush products although I tend to focus on the bath stuff and face masks - never tried any of the hair stuff. I have one of these wee fellas to try myself and am still working through a big box of bath bombs I got as a gift at Christmas! xo

Aww it's been ages since I was in Lush. They've also teamed up with an Irish animal rights group recently to campaign against fur farming too! All round cool company :)

The smell of the shop puts me off even going in! But I might try it as you've made me curious now.

DawnieP said...

Theyre so chatty and sweet!!!

DawnieP said...

I really really do need to try it. there were so many to choose from I got a bit overwhelmed so its lovely to get some good advice!

DawnieP said...

You see I am also very anti fur, even vintage fur (I think it still promotes wearing it, regardless of how long its been dead) So I'm well in favour of this! yay lush!

DawnieP said...

my other half is like that, the smell even near the door of the shop gives him a headache and makes him feel sick. I'm not too bad I think it's because I worked in a perfumerie for years I'm used to it!
