XMAS GIFT IDEA ALERT: There’s a new store in the V&A Waterfront called Lush – they do yummy handmade and all natural bath & body goodies as well as a range of good-for-ya-skin make up.
I popped in there over the weekend and just loved the store’s deli style look and feel – a deli filled with fresh things for your skin! Dig it. I’ve already decided that this is my new favourite store to gift from…
Lush is a UK brand which was established back in 1994 by a husband & wife team. They started with one little store in Poole (a coastal town on the south coast of England) trading under the name Cosmetic House Limited, then the following year they adopted the name “Lush” and today they operate in over 50 countries wordwide.
You’ll be happy to know that Lush does not believe in any animal testing, neither do they use animal fats in their products. You’ll only find ingredients like fruits & veggies, essential oils, synthetic ingredients, honey & beeswax in their products.
While having a look around the store, two products really caught my eye. The first was this Lustre Dusting Powder which promises a lovely golden glow, perfect for when you’re showing off some skin this summer:
And the second was their Curly Wurly fresh coconut shampoo – because I’m absolutely bedinges with anything coconutty at the moment:
I also love their fresh soaps which you can buy by the kg if you wanted to. And their cute little gift sets. Pricing wise I would say they’re kinda on par with The Body Shop, so I thought it was good.
If you’re into all things that smell good enough to eat or you’re a dude and have to buy a special lady a gift, this is a sure bet, trust me.
