'Tis the season for the festive bath bombs to take over Lush stores. Christmas gift sets line the shelves and there's a hint of cinnamon and pine (and Snow Fairy) mingled into the usual Lush store scent. Lush Leeds opened its doors to Leeds bloggers to have a quieter in-store experience, get to grips with the Christmas range and get an open door look at the hidden Lush Leeds Spa.
I've had a handful of treatments in the Lush Leeds Spa and they're all amazing. It still surprises me that people don't know it exists, if you're one of them then you need to make time to book in. Such a brilliant service differing to other spas where I always feel pressured to have the treatment then leave. Lush allows you to have a sit down with a drink at the end of your treatment and come back to earth before heading out.
We were given a whistle-stop tour of the treatments on offer, which had me lusting after another book-in. The Comforter has been my favourite to date and that's not only down to the inclusion of a chocolate body scrub in the treatment.
Back on the shop floor, Lush let us in on their construction secrets. Each of us made our own Butterball bath bomb, smushing the powder into a mould to take home with us. Mine is pride of place on a small stack of other Lush goodies in my bathroom, the best room fragrance.
I've dabbled in Lush make-up offerings in the past, but I fell in love with the Feeling Younger Skin Tint on the night. It's now part of my make-up collection adding a much needed glowing finish to my daily routine.
I'll try and capture the prettiness in a photo and devote a blog post to it, the word on Lush make-up needs to spread! Bold colour fans, you'll love the range, particularly their lip colours which are seriously long lasting.
And the Lush hack? Pretty genius if you ask me. If you love the scents and colours of bathing in Lush at home, but hate the clean up job that often needs to follow (even with a reformulated glitter ingredient) - listen up!
Put your bath bomb of choice into the foot of an old pair of tights and tie off - you can use the whole pair if you like, but this is slightly more inconspicuous - and then plop into the water. You'll get the colours, the scents and a small strain of glitter in some cases, but none of the bath bomb massacre that can coat your baths or clog the plug - you're welcome.
