My First Lush Blogger Event

Hannah Barnes

Last week I was lucky enough to head down to my local lush store after hours for their first ever blogger event. I was a little nervous, as it was also my first blogger event – but it turns out both myself and the store had nothing to worry about. The staff were all on hand to demonstrate the eggcellant new Easter range to us and they’d ordered in a delicious, locally sourced vegan feast to keep us well fed. I ended up having a fantastic night, and met some fellow bloggers who I really enjoyed swapping stories, and lush tips, with.

I’m pretty new to the lush obsession, but when I fell, I fell hard as you might have found out in Totally In Lusht, which you can read here. So I was eggcited (I’ll stop doing that now I promised) to get up close and personal with the first Easter range to come out since my love affair with Lush started last year. And boy, did it live up to eggspectation (I lied, sorry not sorry) – here are a few of my highlights from the range.

The Golden Egg

I captioned this, in order to highlight my true feelings for the golden one, DON’T CARE HOW I WANT IT NOW, only to discover, Lush made the same connection on their brilliant website. Great minds? I think so. In all truth, I do want this bath bomb now, as I didn’t get one in my otherwise awesome goody bag, but that’s okay because the Easter range came out last Friday, so I can pop back to my local lush and BUY ALL OF THE GOLDEN EGGS just as soon as I hit publish on this post.

The reason this bath bomb is so desirable, isn’t just because it looks the bomb. It's covered all over in golden glitter which fills the bath tub and turns you into a glittery goddess upon emerging. But the buttery softness of the bath water, which smooths over your skin as you soak, leaving you both super soft and subtly golden thanks to all that glitter.

Chocolate Lip Scrub

This I did receive in my blogger goody bag, and it’s fast rivaling the popcorn lip scrub as my favourite Lush product. It smells and tastes just like a chocolate orange and has a slightly finer texture than the popcorn lip scrub, akin to my favourite artisan coffee scrubs. It leaves your lips feeling so soft after just the first use and, when followed up with a lush lip-balm, keeps dry or chapped lips at bay.

Chick ‘n’ Mix

This is basically three bath bombs for the price of one – and it really doesn’t get much better than that – a huge egg cracked into two halves, with a smaller bath bomb inside which resembles the yolk of an egg, in the same orange shade as the chick's beak. When combined, the three eventually create a greenish bath, but the colour combinations mid-fizz look so fabulous, you’re unlikely to want to split these guys up.

With dark chocolate for eyes and a sweet scent, reminiscent of sherbet, this bath bomb is pretty luxurious and could easily replace the traditional gift of a chocolate egg this Easter. Just be sure to remind friends and families not to take a bite - this little guy may look and smell extremely sweet, but I highly doubt he tastes as good. 

Bunch of Carrots

These bubble bars are so adorable, I’m a little hesitant to use mine! Consisting of three ‘carrots’ in orange, purple and pink this reusable bubble bar smells far better than any carrots you’re likely to find at the dinner table. Little is needed to get the bath water filled with bubbles and the water will turn a lovely pastel shade as you swirl in your chosen carrot, when the bubbles run low, simply swirl your bathwater round some more and the bubbles reappear like magic.

Right, now that’s polished off, I’m going to stock up on some more Easter goodies including The Golden Egg, Which Came First and a slice of the chocolate Easter Egg Soap, which you have got to try.

Let me know which of the 2017 Easter Lush range takes your fancy, in the comments section.

I keep myself busy with my small business; The Loft Gifts, the period poverty charity I run; The Crimson Wave, writing here and for vaious platforms and a growing menagerie of household pets.


  1. I literally haven't tried any of the special edition Easter stuff this year. I'm the worst. I tend to stick to old favourites like Comforter, Milky Bath and butterballs.
    I'm so jealous you got an invite to the event though. I need help putting myself out there. Please teach me your ways.

    1. This was my first EVER blogger event - so I really lucked out with an invite from Lush! I promise if I come up with any tricks, you'll be the first to know! Make sure you're following your local lush store though - that really helped!

      I loveeeeeee butterballs! How do you feel about the recent controversy? Has it put you off at all?

  2. Ooh amazing! I've never been able to make one of their events but this looks great,I especially
    like the golden eggs! What controversial stuff has there been?

    1. There was some stuff about their advertising campaigns and body shaming - if I'm entirely honest, it hasn't turned me off to the brand (despite being a chunk) but I know a lot of people now boycotting.


  3. I remember seeing you tweet or instagram about this. Our local Easter event was also my first time going to a Lush event and I had a bloody blast. The Easter products were divine and I'm so sad to say goodbye to them (I held on to my last golden egg until last week!) Glad you enjoyed yourself :)

    1. How great are all the demos etc? I loved getting to 'waste' all the pretty bath bombs testing out colours etc. And of course, the event totally worked, because I gave Lush easter gifts instead of chocolate this year!
