Dear LUSH - Thank You For Making Me Feel Human Again

Ok, so before you say "What do Lush cosmetics have anything to do with early learning and parenting? Hold on Lauren you are not a beauty blogger no matter how many times you dress up and pretend to be!"... I couldn't not share and write about my awesome night out at the special sneak peak opening of the new Lush store in Rundle Mall.

L is for Lush

I was on the train at 5pm, free from the kids, breathing it all in and relishing in the time to myself. I thought back to my teen years when I (and all of my friends) were obsessed with The Body Shop and we would go in and try all the products (smothering ourselves with vanilla perfume) and not buy a single thing because we were teenagers and we had no money.

We mums usually put ourselves last and splurging on beauty products is probably at the bottom of our shopping lists. Generally speaking I'll just chuck some random moisturiser in the trolley whilst kid wrangling at Woolies.

I don't wear a lot of make up nor use a lot of beauty products, but after seeing what Lush has to offer, I figure for those must haves that I do use (moisturiser, foundation, powder, shampoo, lip balm etc) I should treat myself to the good stuff.

I'm also not one to have a bath - but after seeing Lush bath bombs I may have been converted (and I've also learnt that #bathart is an actual thing).

So back to the night out - there were cocktails, nibbles, bike riding smoothing making (yes that's a real thing), bath bomb creating, chatting with blogger friends, sampling all of the products, and of course some shopping.

With my gals Beth Almost Posh, Jenni Styling Curvy and Caitlin Twist of Cait

So check out my haul! (Generously gifted via a generous gift voucher)

  • Cup O' Coffee Face & Body Mask (because - um have you met me?)
  • Imperialis face moisturiser
  • Ultrabalm (good for nappy rash and a million other things so I'm told)
  • Snow fairy bath bomb wand (for Miss M - she tried it out last night, absolutely loved it!)
  • Massage bar (did you know 1 in 4 babies has an outie belly button?)
  • Suger plum fairy lip tint
  • Snow fairy shower gel

I also love that Lush is a planet hugging company who takes pride in their products being vegetarian, ethical, handmade, not tested on animals, with minimal packaging. The new store is amazing, the biggest in Australia and the timber they've used is from the construction site of the Sydney Harbour Bridge!

All in all a great night out!

Dear Lush,
You have a new customer :)
Thanks for having me.
