I have been wanting to go to the Lush on Oxford Street as soon, as I heard about it; which is a few months ago now. Since I live a distance away from London it isn’t the easiest trip to make, but I finally managed to go!
With three floors of bath bombs, makeup, face masks, shower gels and just everything Lush, there is nothing not to love. I went in with the intention to buy a few of the exclusive products, but now that a lot of the products aren’t exclusive any more that hasn’t quite happened.
I didn’t actually take any photos in the store, as I got quite carried away with just looking at everything and my fingers soon got covered in lots of different colours and glitter from the products, and I didn’t want to get that all over my phone.
I found the middle floor a little daunting as there was so much happening and so many people, so I didn’t actually spend much time on that floor in particular.
The first thing that I decided to get was the Pink Flamingo, I wasn’t going to get this as I thought £5.95 is a bit expensive for a bubble bar, but I gave in and got it anyway, as it will last for a number of baths, so it should be worth the money. I mean who can resist a bubble bar shaped like a flamingo?
It took me a while to decide which bath bombs to get, but I soon narrowed it down to two.
The first is yoga bomb, which smells incredible; the scent confirmed this for me, as with some Lush stuff I hate the scent, but I love the affect of the product. The scent of this is Sandalwood and Ho Wood oil, but it also contains Oilbanum. I’m excited to use this, as I’m guessing that it has layers to it, as I’ve learnt to never judge a bath bomb by it’s appearance.
The next bath bomb is called Intergalactic, and I have wanted to try this as soon as I saw pictures of it on Instagram, as it looks like it makes the water go a dark blue colour which is one of my favourites, I haven’t used it yet (obviously), but from the pictures it reminds me of Shoot for the Stars, as that also made the water go a dark colour. The scent of this is completely different, as this one has a mint scent to it. I’m not a fan of the smell of mint, but I actually quite like this, as it mixes well with the grapefruit.
I then made my way down to the spa level of the store, which to my surprise was completely empty apart from the staff of course), but there was no one else down there compared to the other two floors that were full of people, after being down there for a little while it did start to fill up, which is not surprising as there are so many lovely products!
This one isn’t exclusive, but I’ve never thought about buying one from my local Lush and I have no idea why, I just don’t tend to look at them, but I picked up a massage bar. I wasn’t going to get one, but when I picked up Tender is the Night and gave it a smell, I had to take one home, as I love the smell of it! To me it smells just like Cocoa butter, and as it is made up of cocoa butter it will be amazing for skin.
The last place I went to, was to the shower gels, as I had the intention to pick the comforter up, but when I smelt it, I didn’t like it (please don’t kill me), but I think it smelt just like Ribena, and I’, not really a fan. I did happen to give Beautiful a smell and I loved it. I did however pick a little bottle up, as I thought it was quite expensive, I paid around £5 for the little bottle. I did consider splashing out on the size up, but I could hear my mum making friends with another woman whilst complaining about the prices (apparently a bottle of Radox for £1 is much better), but beautiful smells… beautiful and it looks it! With the gold and the glitter and the scent of peaches and apricot what is there not to like?
That is everything I got from Lush, I then spent the rest of the day guarding the bag with my life, as I did not want that flamingo to break. I’m happy with what I got, but I’m not happy that if I want to go back then it’s a long train journey or an either longer car journey, but hey ho.
