Lush York Re-opening

Last week I had the privilege of attending my first ever Lush event at the York re-opening. The store had been closed for a little while to have a bit of a refurbishment and was sharing its new look store with some lucky folks the day before the grand re-opening to the public.

Having never attended a Lush event, I was a bit unsure of what to expect, and also having never tried many of their products in the past, I really didn’t know a huge amount about the brand either.

The lovely team welcomed us in and offered us food and drink before we got started. We were then introduced to each of the team and found out a little about how long they’d worked for the company and what they would be demonstrating that evening.

Photo-opportunities came next and cue 10 or so bloggers armed with camera ready to snap all the pretty Lush products all displayed in the new store setting. Think lots of people bent in funny angles if you aren’t quite sure what to picture in your mind.

We were then given demonstrations of the newest products that Lush were offering including Sleepy Body Lotion, Olive Tree Gourmet Soap, Ro’s Argan Gourmet Soap, Yellow Submarine and Metamorphosis.

Cue more picture-taking of course after this and the chance to browse around the store getting help from the various staff members and asking lots of questions. I found myself drawn to the fresh face masks and got deep into a conversation about what would be the best one for my pregnant hormonal skin. I settled on the Love Lettuce after it was recommended and after using it once already, I am thoroughly pleased with my choice.

Before leaving and making my purchase, we were gifted with a lovely goody bag featuring some of the products we had been shown that evening. I was pleasantly surprised by how much was in there and cannot wait to test out the bathbombs for myself at home.

A huge thank you to the staff at Lush who made the whole experience great and I definitely think I will be shopping there a lot more in future.
