Lush Oxford Street and Haul

Lush Oxford Street and Haul

A few days ago I visited London, (I apologise if I spammed your Instagram feed with photos of the beautiful stores) and made a point of visiting the newly opened Lush store on Oxford Street. I like to think of it as Lush heaven - three floors of wall to wall products, super friendly staff, beautiful d├ęcor (white and reclaimed wood), not to mention over 200 products exclusive to the super sized store. If you are in town or happen to be a local you simply must visit - I'm already planning my next trip.

As many will know I don't have a bath tub so all of the new and rather delicious bath bombs, melts and oils were out of bounds for me. In the end I settled on some sweetly scented shower ready products. Before visiting I made a mental note, to only take away items that I would not be able to get my mitts on in any Lush store - I guess somewhat frugal? Two shower gels and a conditioner is as restrained as I get.

I am a huge fan of Lush Daddy-O Shampoo which has been formulated to brighten and eradicate brassy tones from all forms of blonde hair. Think of it as a toning shampoo, a toning shampoo that smells like crushed violets! To compliment the shampoo Lush Oxford Street have the exclusive Lush Super Daddy-O Solid Conditioner (£5.95), this of course aims to both brighten and moisturise blonde locks. I am hoping that it is deeply conditioning as my hair has had its fair share of abuse - both heat and bleach. I will report back once I have given it a good few tries but I am optimistic.

So yes two shower gels - well of sorts, I bough Lush The Comforter Shower Gel and Lush Needles and Pine Shower Jelly. It wasn't so long ago that the Lush Kitchen did a small run of Lush The Comforter Shower Gel and I of course ordered a bottle, well now it is permanent and exclusive to the Oxford Street store. It does seem that the permanent bottle differs a little from the Kitchen exclusive in formula and ingredients - however rest assure the fragrance is just what you'd imagine. Bright, berry and totally scrumptious. A gentle base of Almond Oil helps to nourish all the while effectively cleansing the skin. If you don't have a bath and want to experience the incredible scent of one of Lush's best selling bath products this is just what you have been waiting for. 

Lastly I added Lush Needles and Pine Shower Jelly to my basket - I know what you are thinking, surely this should be a Christmas product or at least something aimed at the Winter months? Nope it is a sensuous blend of Pine and Cyprus Leaf notes that aim to mimic the effect of a sauna - encouraging blood flow and circulation, all the while stimulating capillary beds. The fragrance is very alpine - fresh, invigorating and renewing. It is one to pop in the freezer for using after a strenuous gym session. 

I live in hope that perhaps one day Lush Oxford Street will have a stand alone site, in which all of us not based in London (or nearby) can order from. A girl can only dream...

  1. The Comforter sounds amazing, I don't have baths either so I always find myself limited in Lush

  2. I'm so glad they make The Comforter as a shower gel now! I love the bubble bar but I only get to use it when I'm home as my university flat doesn't have a bath tub - definitely need to pick some of the shower gel up as that smell is heavenly!

  4. I am visiting London next week and it has now become my mission to visit the Oxford Street store. The Comforter shower gel sounds amazing. I am a big fan of the bubble bar but at university I won't be able to use it, this will be a perfect replacement.

  12. I love all things scented violet! But as a non-blonde I wonder whether it's worth a purchase.

  13. A stand alone site would be amazing! I envy anyone who visits that store and can purchase any of the extra 200 products. It's a bit out of the way from me, in the North West x

  14. I'm so darn jealous! I'm planning a trip down in August. I bet seeing all the bath bombs was torturous without a bath tub though :(!
