Guest Post - First Time at Lush:The Truth

This post could have been alternatively titled “The Quick Jump from Lush-Virgin to Lush-Addict”. Three days ago, I was still a Lush Virgin as one beauty blogger put it.
I had never been in a Lush store, I had never smelled a Lush product but now I know exactly just how much I was missing!
The first time I stepped into Lush, I was greeted by a smiling sales girl who offered to show me around. A few minutes later I decided that this store should definitely be given an award for the most helpful and insightful staff in the city. I have heard many great things about Lush sales people in other parts of the world, too, so if you are unsure about something, just ask them. You may end up with a new friend, heaps of advice and a full bag of Lush goodies.
Another tip for a Lush newbie: do your research before you go into the store or you will end up destroying your budget. Lush is full of amazing products which are basically begging to be taken home - from face masks to shampoos and tons of bath and shower goodies, it is hard to figure out what exactly you want.

So what did I buy?

Yes - the famous Lush Cupcake mask. It got my attention because of the chocolate-y smell, and also because I had read quite a few great reviews about it. I will be doing a full review on my blog soon but right now I can already say that I really, really like it. The mask has calmed my breakouts, and left my skin feeling clean and fresh. Another thing? It smells and looks like something you could eat so before putting it in the refrigerator, I put a sticky note on it, saying “Please don’t eat”.
You can officially call me a Lush addict now. I will definitely be returning to the store soon, and if you haven’t checked it out yet, I recommend that you do so. It is really worth it!

Lots of Love
