First of all, I'm going to apologise for my serious lack of blogging, but over the past two weeks my life went a bit wrong, I was trialing for my county rugby team and suddenly my knee started to swell really fast and then I went down on it after a tackle and couldn't walk. I went to A&E and they were useless, but after various doctors appointments and scans, we've come to the conclusion I've torn my ACL, with a final scan due on Saturday to make sure. This has turned my life upside down a bit, with the thought of surgery and not being able to play sport for at least 6 months, I'm a bit of a mess, but oh well! Anyway onto the real content of this post...
Last Thursday, I was invited to attend the Lush Portsmouth Halloween and Christmas Preview, I couldn't have been more excited when I heard there would be a massive 37 new products for Christmas?! 37 I repeat! Those little Lush elves have been busy.
The Halloween Collection, plus a few other items, but these were my favourites! The Wizard bubble bar, exactly like their Christmas Penguin and Candy Mountain, which are two of my personal favourites so I obviously fell in love with this little guy! The pumpkin is so so sparkly too, who doesn't love sparkles?!
There was so many products to take photos of, I didn't know what to start with! There was the return of some old favourites, like Snow Fairy, which I'd never actually smelt before, I know I'm such a let down, but Snow Fairy definitely didn't let me down, it smells like heaven. This was joined by the Magic Wand, Shoot for the Stars and Golden Wonder, to name a few personal favourites!
After we'd had the chance to smell everything, take photos and eat lots of cake, we had the chance to make our own Comforter Bubble Bar. It was so amazing to be able to make one, unfortunately I didn't get a photo of them, but they're huge! My room now smells like a Lush shop, I'm winning in life.
Personally, I think this little bear, named Butterbear, is one of the best products and I predict it to be a bestseller. It's got two of my favourite things in it; vanilla and cocoa butter, so it's nourishing for dry winter skin. It smells amazing and it just looks so cute, and for a cheap price of £1.95, it's definitely a bargain.
This was the amazing choice of cakes we got, I had a cherry one, but I wish I could've tried them all! They were delicious, they were made by a local bakery but I didn't quite catch the name of it, but I'll be on the hunt for it as I need to go there.
I had such a fun evening, and obviously made a few cheeky purchases to go with my goody bag, which will be up on my blog soon, but anyway, who wouldn't have fun being let loose in a Lush shop? I can't wait to buy more of the Christmas and Halloween range.
P.S The shower gels all smell amazing.
