Hey lovelies, I hope you are all well today.
I was kindly invited by the fab team at Lush, to go along to their Belfast store, to preview their new 2016 Fathers Day launch which is available online now and in store. This was a great opportunity to see all my lovely blogging ladies and gents and to get a sneak peek at the upcoming range.
After a giggle filled car journey to Belfast, myself Victoria from Dotty Diamond and Sera from The Style Guide Blog, met up with Bex from Faeriwood and Tj from Ginger Snaps Vintage Gillian from Eyeliner Flicks and headed over to the store, where we were greeted by the fab Nuala, India, Jake, Gerard and Dan who were soo sweet and lovely and made us all feel at home instantly!
It was also lovely to meet Ian from Rogues + Brogues, Ruth from Willow Lane and Rachel from Kyvbey. Kaya from Toxic Tears, her partner Jake from Metal Ass Gamingand Rory from Worried Bubble were also there.
So we all started out having a good old natter with some bubbly and nibbles, and of course selfies with the professional lighting!, then settled down to get a great demo on some of Lushs best products, including Rub Rub Scrub, Charity Pot lotion, Silky Underwear Dusting Powder and Shimmy Shimmy which I swear I can still see shimmers of and by the end of it I couldn't tell who smelt of what but in a great way!! The team were fantastic about getting the balance of giving great information, but making it fun and entertaining, and we all felt at ease.
After this we made our own Angels on Bare Skin Cleanser, now that was fun! This was one of the skincare range that I had never tried, mainly due to my dislike of lavender but the ground almonds in this cleanser actually cut the smell of lavender to the point I actually quite like it. It was great to see how simple and few products it takes to make this, just another reason to love Lush. We got to pot up the cleanser and take it home!
After this, we had a little break and we were all so curious to see the new range! We weren't disappointed, the new Fathers Day range is fantastic, and has something to suit the man in your life.
So the Lava Lamp Bath Bomb is full of orange oils and little purple orbs of cocoa butter, it was so so stunning and the smell filled the room.
Smugglers Soul Facial Scrub has to be the finest exfoliator I have ever tried. The bamboo granules are so fine and the woody sandalwood smell is heaven.
Smugglers Soul Multipurpose Balm is a great wee all rounder, again with the sandalwood scent and incorporating Argan Oil makes it a winner for everyone.
Modfather Bubble Bar is full of citrus oils again and will ensure you feel fab after your bath.
Thanks Dad Soap is like a little square of Jaffa Cake, and the imprint of the letters just adds to the cuteness.
Superdad Bath Bomb has to be the stand out of the range! Its a slow fizzer and we all were mesmerised when they demoed it.
They also have gift sets available indluding Papa Bear Gift set, Walk on the Wild Side set and Super Dad set. There really is something for everyone in this range,
We really did have an amazing night, and it's wonderful to see a team of staff who are all so enthusiastic about the products but also the company and the ethics they hold.
We were generously gifted some stunning products and of course I bought some of the Rub Rub scrub, I swear the stuff is magical!
This was Lush in Belfasts 1st event, and they have really set the bar high. Thanks to the team at Lush for allowing me the privilege to have a sneak preview of what is sure to be another successful launch.
Until next time lovelies
