Firstly i would just like to say how lovely the people who work in Lush in the Arndale Centre Manchester are ... they are so so helpful, i could spend all day in there! <3 So i went in and decided to pickup a basket as i'd be getting quite a bit of stuff lol, as soon as i started looking at all the bath bomb a sales assistant came over to help me, she was asking if its for me or someone else, and asking questions to help me out loads ... she was lovely. She didnt hassle or anything as wasnt pushy into buying anything ... she was Fab <3
This is everything i bought ...
(the descriptions are straight from the lush website as are the prices so they may differ in stores depending on sizes you pick up)
Rock Chick box (£5.87) which contained :
Rock Star soap - is pink and smells of sweeties rock starsoap makes your hand and body smell like candy.
Creamy Candy bath bubble slice - smells delicious and has cocoa butter and almond oil to moisturise your skin.
Bathos - Bathos contains Violet Lead, Jasmine & Ylang Ylang, said to be very relaxing, warm the emotions and your limbs feel floppy. (Couldnt find this one on the lush website so the description is off the label, cant remeber the price sorry!)
Therpapy massage bar - Euphoria-inducing bar with uplifting neroli. Therapy is a wunder-bar, which we make to help your hard life get softer. First, it moisturizes with cocoa and shea butters to make your hard skin get softer. Then, it softens your tensions with lavender and neroli oils - neroli is the one which gives you a feeling of euphoria, especially when you have someone massaging it into your shoulders. Give therapy a try and you'll feel better in no time. (£5.50)
Dream cream - Incredibly soothing body lotion for troubled skin. Dream Cream is Lush's best-selling product because it makes sore skin feel good again. Chamomile and lavender calm irritations, reduce redness and banish blotches. We've also included soothing oat milk, too. It contains everything nature makes for soothing your skin. (£9.60) I didnt buy this one, but the sales assistant said its very good for people with ezcema .. like my self so she gave me a tester which ive tried and LOVED it ... it hasnt affected my ezcema or anything, its helped my dry areas too, but i'll be buying it when im next in Lush.
Ma Bar - Spoil yourself with a chocolate-toffee bar. The Lush Ma Bar is a Bubble Bar of two halves: cocoa and honey toffee. In the centre, there's a lump of brown sugar, which melts in the bath water. It originally appeared for Mother's Day, but although it was due to be a limited-edition, and the Lush kitchens were supposed to stop making them, no-one wanted to stop buying. Anyway, it's a lovely little present to give your Ma all year round, to show that you appreciate her on more than just one day a year. While it does smell good enough to eat, you really shouldn't try. (£2.36)
<---Cinders - Fizz, crackle and pop! A spicy, soda scented Ballistic that crackles like a roaring fire. (£1.95)
Mr Butterball ---> - Mr. Butterball blesses gives you with vanilla-scented, soft skin for Christmas. Mr. Butterball has had work done. After a Synaesthesia massage and a Lush makeover, he's ready to rock this Christmas in a sexy new guise. Fortunately, he still smells of our sweet, soothing Ballistic and he still melts tiny pieces of creamy cocoa butter into the bathwater to moisturize and soften your whole body. (£2.20)
Ruby Red Slippers - Sparkling, ruby red Bubble Bar with a bewitching fragrance of rose and carnation. There's no place like Lush at Christmas. Grab yourself a pair of Ruby Red Slippers and work some powerfully foaming magic on the water and make it as colourful as the merry old land of Oz. This calming, skin-toning potion of carnations, tangerines and roses makes your body feel and smell bewitching. Munchkins can break a bar in half and get two little baths for the price of one. (£3.50)
I also got a small tester charity pot for £1 of there cocoa butter as it smells delicous ... so i thought it would be perfect to keep in my bag as a small hand cream, also if you decide to buy the full tub of cocoa butter you just take the container back in from the charity tester pot and you then get £1 off the full tub ... good idea !!
As everyone knows .... Lush is a enviromently friendly shop so they've stopped doing the box gift wraps ... what happens now is you pick a large scarf (square) theres loads to pick from with lovely designs on and they put the stuff you've bought in the bag then make something out of it. They make bags, but they look fab ... its hard to describe so you'll have to either get one or look on there website for pictures! I didnt want my stuff wrapping but i bought a scarf anyway as there only £3.50!
I will give a review of all the stuff ... but i'll do it once ive used everything so it may take a while ... so be patient for the Lush review blog!
