Friday 4th November marked an incredible weekend full of candy floss, fireworks, chats with friends over coffee, lunch in a cosy pub and an incredible evening spent at the Christmas Lush event. Thanks to the lovely Katie Kirk and the Lush PR team I received my first invitation to my favourite bath and body shop on the high-street. To say I was estastic would be an understatement.
As soon as we stepped through the doors, we were greeted with lots of Lush loveliness, a Christmas themed spread laid on by Laura (think mince pies, celebrations, candycane crisps, satsumas and sparkling rose) and her lovely team and of course a festive playlist to help get us all in the Christmas spirit. You would have to be a complete scrooge to not secretly enjoy the early nod to the most wonderful time of the year.
After everyone had mingled, the lovely Laura introduced herself and told us that we would all be given the opportunity to create our very own buche de noel cleanser, Mark was also going to be showing us some Lush cocktails (sadly not the type one can consume) but rest assure the sight of them had us all jumping with joy and gasping at the magnificent sight of all of the glorious colour combinations. This man is a potion master and both Mark and the lovely Lush fairies were so passionate about the brand that you couldn’t help but get excited about their latest collection which is centred around pure natural, self preserving ingredients.
Hayley, who it turned out was an old school friend of mine, was incredibly informative about the Naked Collection and was on hand to answer all of my questions about the new range. I was amazed to discover that by reducing the water content of most of their products, they were in fact preventing bacteria from growing, which in turn removed the need for artificial preservatives and packaging such as plastic pots. This is something that I am very excited about as not only is this great for our environment, but it also means better quality products for our bodies – everyone is a winner.
I had such an amazing night and I can’t believe how quickly it was over, the build up to it had me feeling like a child on Christmas Eve and, just like Christmas itself, the event certainly didn’t disappoint. Moreover, just when I thought my evening couldn’t get any better, we were all presented with a very generous goody bag packed full of Lush treats, which included our very own handmade buche de noel cleanser.
Thank you so much to all of the Crawley Lush team (Laura, Mark and Hayley) and to Katie Kirk for helping to arrange it all. It was an absolute pleasure meeting all of you who attended the event and now I can’t wait for a very Lush Christmas.
