Last Friday a brand new LUSH store opened on Oxford Street in London. It is the new flagship store and is thirteen times bigger than the average LUSH store - that means a lot of LUSH products and a lot of space. You can literally get lost in scents and colours - all over three floors! I think the most exciting thing are the new exclusive prodcuts - there is currently 214 in the line up - it grew significantly from the original 100! All the products are LUSH Oxfrod Street exclusive and the best-selling ones will go on the permanent sale in all LUSH stores beginning June. There is a lot of new products and it's impossible to cram them all in one post, but here is a nutshell...
Comforter Moisturising Shower Cream - something I am most excited about because I love The Comforter but we don't have a bathtub in our flat, so I can only use it when I am on holidays! It has the most delicious smell of blackberries - yum! - and it has glitter, I seriously couldn't ask for more!
There are lots of new bath bars including these glitterly gold Ginger Buttercup (not really my cup of tea since I am not a fan of ginger), Frozen (very fresh and invigorating) and Flamingo (sweet and pink). There are many cute designs like Windmills, Little Dragons, Lotus Flowers and even Milk Bottles, it's bath indulgence at your finest!
There are also new exclusive soaps like this cool Sticky Banana which looks good enough to eat, Oxford Street combining the most loved LUSH fragrances into one, Damaged hot oil treatment with vanilla and avocado and old favourites like Respect Your Elders.
One of the things that got me excited were brand new Eye Jewels in an array of colours from white, silver to blue and green. They are additions to LUSH's makeup range and I would describe them as melted eyeshadows/eyeliners blend. You can apply them with fingers and blend gently, or go for a precise eyeliner with a brush. They don't come cheap - £10 each! - although you can get a cute case for them. I'm not sure what will be their staying power, they seem incredibly creamy, so I don't think people with oily skin will be happy to use those. But it's something new and interesting and I'm looking forward to reading reviews of people who will try them.
