A couple of weeks back I was invited by the babes at Lush Newcastle, to the press launch of the new Halloween and Christmas products. Plus a few returning faves (yes to Snow Fairy!)
I literally accepted the invite in a second, as I love Lush and I was keen to see what new products they had in store for us.
Being that the event was a ‘blogger breakfast’ I was up and out super early and ready to get my nose into all the new wonderful smells, normally I’m not a morning person, like at all. But, being greeted with vegan pizza and a bit of bublé playing upon arrival, I perked up instantly.
After meeting a few friendly faces and introducing ourselves, we we’re split into groups so that we could have a little pit-stop at every activity they had planned for us. The first stop was my fave, the bath bombs. We had a few little demos so we could see the new launches in action.
Two that have managed to sneak on my christmas list (because who doesn’t get Lush sets for christmas?) are the Ectoplasm and the Luxury Lush Pud. Ectoplasm is one of the new jelly bath bombs which I haven’t had the pleasure of giving a whirl yet.
The texture was so bizarre, but I love them and they totally remind me of my younger jelly bath days. They also do a Snow Fairy jelly bomb so I will definitely be picking that up sometime soon.
We then had a bash at creating out own Sunnyside bubble bars, and I honestly think I’m still covered in glitter from my attempt two weeks on. The whole process of making the bubble bars contained just seven ingredients all knead together in one bowl.
I decided to get a lil’ creative with my bar and instead of moulding the regular tear shape, I spent ages trying to make a ‘J’ shape. It’s crazy to think that the makers in the Lush factory can create up to 1,000 bubble bars an hour and I was struggling with one!
Overall, I had a Lush day (pardon the pun). The staff were absolutely lovely and I tend to get pre event jitters with this sort of thing but I felt like I was right at home instantly.
I was also given a super generous goody bag that I’m currently in the process of working my way through, so lookout for a Lush review pretty soon. (definitely including the 9 to 5 cleanser btw, my skin is dreamy)
Have you nabbed anything from the Halloween or Christmas launch?
