Lush Valentines Day | Get Ready With Me Event

0 comments

Lush seasonal ranges are my favourite ranges of the whole year. I love waiting for them, and usually hate it when they stop selling them. Lush always manage to produce the best products, so when Lush Southampton invited me down for a pre Valentine's Day Get Ready With Me evening I was so excited to have a pamper session and preview the new products.

Like all Lush events, there was an array of snacks for to keep us going throughout the evening, the spread was full of fresh fruit, nuts and popcorn. There was definitely a healthy vibe to the evening, with no chocolate in sight! 

Some of the 2015 collection made it's way back into the collection for 2016, including the Prince Charming Shower Gel, but in a reformulated cream form which is more thick and creamy which I definitely prefer. I'm not a massive fan of the scent of Prince Charming, so it's definitely one you need to have a sniff of before buying. My favourite from the collection last year, Unicorn Horn, came back with a new look, which I'm not a fan of, they ditched the stars, it's more pastel this year, and it's definitely smaller. Lush what are you playing at guys?! I obviously still bought one because it's still pretty.

Lip scrubs are one of my favourite Lush products out there, I own 2 already and The Kiss definitely made it's way into my collection after seeing it, and tasting it obviously. It tastes like strawberries and contains little edible hearts! If lip scrubs aren't your thing, it's also available in a lip balm stick which is just as lovely.

Lover Lamp is a new bath bomb that sounds right up my street. It's full of vanilla and cocoa butter, which are my two favourite things in a Lush product. I picked a few up to make sure I have a stash if I completely fall head over heels for it, which I'm sure I will.

I've never really gotten into Lush soaps. I'm a shower cream kind of girl for sure, but these cute rose shaped soaps caught my eye. The Roses All The Way soap are displayed on a large board of soap, which makes the display so much more appealing, and the green base will be cut up when the Valentine's collection ends and donated to shelters. The roses are actually white underneath, but painted pink.

After we demoed a range of products, we moved over to the back of the store to see how the Cupcake facemask is made. I've made a face mask at Lush before, and it is quite like baking a cake to be honest. I felt like it should've been poured into a tin and put in the over for 20 minutes, but instead when it was done it was potted up for each of us to take one home, which was a nice touch as I've never tried the Cupcake facemask.

To finish off the evening we had a lip pamper session, to get ready for all those Valentine's Day kisses that may or may not have been happening... We used a range of lip scrubs, balms and then topped it all off with their Emotional Brilliance range. I didn't trial any as I was wearing a lipstick already, but all the girls that did looked absolutely fabulous. The range of colours is incredible, from pinks, to blues, to greens, literally all the colours of the rainbow. As most of you know, I am a massive dark red lip fan, so these were obviously my favourites.

A massive thankyou to everyone at Lush Southampton that was involved with the event. I had a brilliant evening, I especially enjoyed catching up with all my blogging babes. I can't wait to try out all the new products, and then pop into store to stock up when I've fallen in love!
