Blogger Events 2014 – Lush blogger breakfast Meadowhall

Blogger Events 2014

Blogger Events 2014

I was recently invited to Meadowhall for a blogger event to have some breakfast and see behind the scenes at Lush, learn about their products and try making some of our own! I was really excited about this as a long-time Lush fan so did a bit of videoing to show you what went on at the event.

After we took home our home made Catastrophe Cosmetic fresh face mask and could choose a toner and cleanser. I chose A Breath of Fresh Air toner as it was really brightening for your complexion, although I was torn between it and the Tea Tree toner. You can apply the toner by either spraying directly on your face or spraying it on a cotton bud.

The cleanser I picked was the Let the Good Times Roll that was demonstrated on me in the video. It smells amazing and is a really gentle exfoliant so I can use it every night as it isn’t too harsh on my skin. You take a small amount, add water and rub into a paste and then gently use to scrub your face. I really like it but it only lasts a few months as it uses fresh natural ingredients so I probably have too much to use in that time. Next time I will go for a smaller tub of Ocean Salt I think, it was also featured in the video and sounded like a little cocktail of a cleanser!

It was fantastic seeing the fresh, cruelty free, natural concoctions made at Lush, I must have a go at making some of my own fresh face masks at home! I have done a DIY face mask post in the past,  is it sometime that you would like to see again?

I also didn’t know about Lush’s make up range. They had some amazing colours that can be used with different applicators to your eyes, lips, cheeks and hair. I left with Rainbow Hair. They also do the emotion colour wheel as shown in my video, here were my results –

  • I always felt so intimidated by Lush stores when we lived in the UK. It’s one of those things that make me panic. Whenever someone approaches me with questions like “Are you looking for a particular product?” or “Do you have dry hair?” I cease up, panic and end up picking something that smells of old lady. I’m hopeless.
    But I think the opportunity to make what you want while being guided is a great thing! Looks like you had loads of fun!

    Oh my, I forgot how much I missed Lush! I lived in Dublin for a few years and the tempting smells always dragged me in off the street. I loved their masks!

  • Elekins1000

    I absolutely adore lush products! I was only in there the other week and managed to spend about £30!

  • Those are fun isn’t it? I went to a Lush event like that two years ago and we made the Catastrophe as well. To be honest though I think the girl put way to much oil in it, it was just to greasy! Hahaha! You can read bout it on my blog .
