Lush Bloggers Event Nottingham

When I recieved a invitation through my email inbox from Lush PR asking if I would like to attend Nottingham’s bloggers event on the 12th May. I graciously and excitedly accepted as I have always been a big fan of Lush products.

Lush on Clumber Street is on one of the most busiest streets in Nottingham. I completely avoid weekend visits to the store because it’s so busy. My inner introvert hates it when shops are so full of people that you can’t physically move around. I like to be able to shop at my own leisure and with space. 
Nottingham's local bloggers and vloggers were greeted by the friendly and welcoming Lush staff. Sparkling summer fruit pitchers and doughnuts from Doughnotts were on offer as refreshments throughout the evening. Yum :)
It was a wonderful opportunity to be able to fully browse around the Lush store. I enjoyed having one to one consultations with the staff as I could pick their knowledge about products which I’ve always been curious to know more about. 
I learnt about Lush's lifelong aim to create products without preservatives because these chemicals have potential to harm us and also our planet. Lush’s three products which were reformulated to be self-preserving which are Dream Cream hand and body lotion, Ocean Salt face and body cleanser and Mask Of Magnaminty face and body mask. It can be found in two formulas: preserved and self preserving to suit the customers needs.
I also learnt about the Lush's spa and the treatments avaliable. I had a complimentary arm and hand massage from the lovely Ellie (LushPrincessUk on Instagram) which was very relaxing. She used the Soft Coeur heart massage bar (which is my favourite as it smells of toffee, chocolate and everything sweet). I didn't realise how tense my hands were until after they had been pampered. After my hand massage Ellie used Silky Underwear which is Lush's version of talcon powder to dry any excess oil. This contains jasmine, cocoa butter and vetivert oil. I think this would be great to use as a natural deodorant or as a dry shampoo. 
At the end of the evening we all recieved goodie bags which were tailored to whether we were a bath or shower person.
Out of the options I chose a Superdad bathbomb (which is a combination of guaiacwood and sandalwood) these are sold exclusively for Father's Day which is on the 18th June. I used it in the bath as soon as I got home because sandalwood is one of my favourite scents. My Dad isn't keen on beauty products as much as I am and he would much prefer a beer for Father's day.
I also recieved The Comforter shower gel (100g) and Ocean Salt self-preserving face and body scrub (120g).
I've never tried any of these products before so I will let you know my thoughts in future blog posts.
I never thought that when I started my blog or YouTube channel back in 2014 that I would be invited to a Lush event. Thank you for inviting me. It was lovely to be recognised for my hard work which I put into BunnyMoonstone. I absolutely love what I do but it takes hardwork, patience and persistence. 

What I loved most of all was seeing my blogger friends and networking with new people too.
