Christmas Lush Haul


Happy Thursday lovelies, its new youtube video time again.  I'm getting quite good at this regular uploading malarky although I had intended for this video to go up in a few weeks time but I've been really poorly over the last week with a kidney infection and in between seeing the doctor and the hospital, I haven't had much time for filming anything new so I hope you like this anyway.

It features lots of products that I've bought recently from Lush, including lots of Christmas themed bath ballistics/bath bombs and bubble bars.  In the video, I talk about how my shopping experience wasn't quite how I would like it to be in that I felt quite hounded and as though I couldn't just browse.  The sales associates were all so lovely and helpful and I just sort of went along with it as I didn't want to appear rude but I think I'll try shopping online next time.  I still absolutely LOVE Lush and their stores and products are fabulous, I think I just like to wander about and smell everything then decide what I want to get rather than that experience being sort of led by someone else.  Theres a fine line between being helpful and overpowering I guess but that may just be my perception as the staff are always so lovely in there.  I hope that makes sense.

Anyway, here's the video so that you can see what I picked up in my Lush Haul... theres also a funny moment in there that I nearly cut out but it made me giggle when editing so hopefully you'll smile at my expense too lol.

  8. I find the mix of scents in a Lush shop is too overpowering for me. It has been known to cause me to have an asthma attack. I thought my days of buying Lush products were over until I discovered their on-line shop. Now I can indulge without worries.

  13. I'm so glad I'm not the only person who feels hounded in lush. I wanted to have a potter around my local branch to see what the christmas range was like. it used to be such a lovely shop to wander around. In the end I bought only 2 things, because I couldn't wait to get away from the assistant. She was bubbly and friendly, but I started feeling like I was being stalked by a high pressure double glazing salesperson. I had a whole list of people I was hoping to get things for, but like you I'll shop on line, or I'll go elsewhere.

  15. I am so sorry but I am still laughing at your video. I think you did so well not swearing. I have never bought anything in Lush as I hate being harassed in store. Every single time I go in I feel pestered.

  17. I am SOOOOO excited to head to LUSH this Christmas - I normally buy the kids a Christmas pudding bath bomb for Christmas eve and myself a nice bath melt :D I bought the star wand for Heidi last year which she loved and it was good value as you could use it about 20 times x

  18. Just wanted to comment again after watching the video - I agree about the staff. I am just firm as soon as I go in and say I just want to look myself thanks and I don't get followed or hounded. The staff don't take offence either xx

  23. First of all I want to say hope you're feeling better! I agree 100% regarding the staff which is why I always shop online now. I couldn't stand being bombarded anymore with all these different products being thrown my face that I should try and buy and then being taken to another section of the store for more. It's put me off indefinitely about even going in for a browse because then I get all anxious! I hope you enjoy using your products.. I have to be honest your video defintely gave the laugh I needed! Sorry! :)

  24. I hate being pounced on as soon as I enter a shop - I know they're only doing what they've been trained to do, but it makes me want to turn around and walk straight back out again! Your goodies look lovely though! x
