I was kindly invited to the opening of the newly refurbished Lush store in Bournemouth by their PR team on twitter. I was soooo excited as I had never been to an event like this before and it was a great chance to meet fellow bloggers/vloggers and make some new friends!
I got talking to a girl on twitter called Ciara (you can follow her on Twitter and subscribe to her on YouTube) and we agreed to meet up beforehand as she didn’t know anyone that was going either and then we got talking to some more people and before long there was 4 of us meeting up to all go to this event together (you can follow Georgia on Twitter and you can follow Jess on Twitter and subscribe to her on YouTube).
We got to Lush at 5pm when the event was due to start and they ticked us off the guest list and gave us each a lanyard with our names and twitter handles on to wear whilst we were there, this made it so easy to get talking to other people and knowing who they were straight away. We then got greeted with a glass of bubbly and given a basket for any purchases we wanted to make.
The refurbishment of the store was incredible and the layout of the products was so well organised and easy to find your way around. Each different type of product was labelled and they had members of the lush team at each different station talking you through the products, giving demonstrations and answering any questions we had regarding these products. We even got to mould our very own bubble bar and try some lush themed cocktails as well.
For those of you that don’t know/have never used Lush products (lets be real here, who hasn’t?!) they are all made using only vegan or vegetarian recipes and they are never tested on animals. As a company they never even buy any ingredients from companies that carry out, fund or commission any form of animal testing.
Overall, it was an incredible event and I am so glad I went. I learnt so much more about their wide range of products and even got to try a few new ones. I cannot wait to use my ‘Rosy Cheeks’ facemask properly. The staff at Lush were all fantastic and I cannot rate them enough. If you are ever in Bournemouth town centre, make sure you pop into their new store and check out the new Halloween/Christmas range. I know that I will definitely be paying more visits in the near future!
Until next time, bye xx
