Last night Lush kindly invited me to their VIP pre opening event to have a sneaky look at their new store in Cribbs Causeway, Bristol. OMG! If any one knows the original store, will know how small it was, it was nearly impossible to have a good look at all the pretties. Well now, there’s plenty of room! The new store is amazing!
One thing you will notice is all the stations & sinks dotted about the shop so you can have a try of the products before you buy. I know my kids are going to love watching all the bath bombs exploding and playing with the bubble bars. All the fixture and fittings were sourced from companies local to Lush’s HQ in Poole. Even the taps have the Lush logo on them. It has more of a spa feel to the shop instead of a retail unit.
The best thing about the evening, we got to make our own bath bomb (Star Dust) and a bubble bar (Candy Mountain). It was great listening to Matt & Jason talk about how the process goes from product development to mixing the ingredients before hand making all the gorgeous products we love.
My very own Candy Mountain! We were even allowed to bring them home, so once they are set and out of the mould I will share a picture over on my Instagram. I could’t leave empty handed, it would be just plain rude! I can’t get enough of their new winter scent Sugar Plum Fairy, so I picked up a lip tint. I also grabbed another The Conforter shower gel, and a Northern Lights bath bomb.
Lush kindly gave us a little treat to take away, which will be going under my tree for Christmas. I received the Home for Christmas gift box, which contains Sleepy body lotion, Rose Jam shower gel & Serendipity soap. The opening hours for the new store are Monday – Friday 9.30am – 10.00pm, Saturday 9.00am – 9.00pm and Sunday 11am – 5pm.
