Lush Southampton Blogger Event

12 comments



If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram, you'll know that I attended a blogger event at Lush in Southampton on Friday! It was such a well organised event and it was so much fun, I've used Lush in the past but only really used their bath products so it was great to learn about their other products!


On arrival we were greeted by a lovely team of staff and light refreshments! There was a choice of champagne or sparkling flavoured drinks, I had something that tasted like raspberries but I'm not entirely sure what it was! Throughout the evening we snacked on amazing vegan cakes, fruit and popcorn!


Our first activity was an icebreaker! We had to pair up with someone we didn't know and give them an arm massage using a Lush massage bar whilst finding out about them and their blog. I paired with Karis from beautybykaris.com, it was a fun starter activity and definitely broke the ice!


The group was then split in two to do different activities, I started with making facemasks. It was amazing to see how they're made, and what they're made from. I learnt their facemasks use all natural ingredients which are sourced locally where possible. We made Cupcake,which smells like mint chocolate and Catastrophic Cosmetic, which smells like blueberries!

Then my group moved onto the Emotional Brilliance Wheel to learn about Lush's makeup range! You have to sit down and close your eyes while the wheel is spun, the wheel contains dry ice which covers the wheel in smoke. When the wheel has stopped spinning you have to pick the three colours that appeal to you first with no thought, these correspond to your feelings. The Lush consultant will explain to you what each of them means. I picked Drive, Believe and Decisive. They're all lip colours which corresponds to me perfectly as I wear lipstick a lot. 


How amazing is this Creamy Candy Bubble Bar Cake?!

After the activities we had some time to chat and shop, I tried not to spend money but that plan failed completely, I will be doing a haul/reviews of everything I bought soon. When it was time to leave we were all giving a bag of goodies to take home and try which was so generous.

Overall the evening was perfect and I'd like to thank the Lush Southampton team for putting on such a fab event. Seeing as it was the first ever blogger event, it was so well put together, and I'd love to attend more in the future. 




The goody bags contained something for us, and also something for our followers! I received;
Bubblegum Lip Scrub
Ocean Salt Face and Body Scrub (I have been dying to try this since forever!)
African Paradise Body Conditioner 
Cupcake Facemask
Catastrophic Cosmetic Facemask
Creamy Candy Bubble Bar

I can't wait to try all of these products, there will be many reviews up on my blog in the next few weeks, if there's something you'd specifically like me to review let me know in the comments below!

Stay tuned for a giveaway featuring some Lush goodies!
