14 Day Brand Challenge- Day 1

Heyy Fabulosities,

Yesterday I posted about the 14 Day Brand Challenge which I was going to start today, but I accidentally deleted the post! So if you did not manage to see it, let me fill you in.

The 14 Day Brand Challenge is when you select a brand and basically become obsessed with it for 2 weeks. I will be posting about products and designs all from my chosen brand.

This was the clue I gave you (about which brand I had chosen):

I often go to this shop to get my favourite bath ballistics

Have you guessed it? My brand is...

LUSH of course!!! And for Day 1 of the challenge, I'll tell you a bit about Lush and why I picked it as my brand.

Firstly, it's one of my favourite and most visited shops. I like it that there's a Lush store in any good shopping town, and I already have loads of Lush stuff so that won't be a problem. They sell such an amazing range of products, from bath bombs to shampoos and ranges for men too, and the prices aren't that bad. Another thing which I love about Lush is that all of their products are handmade from natural ingredients, so the cosmetics are suitable for anyone with sensitive skin like me. Lush are also against animal testing.

This is an image of a Lush store, though it's not my local one. I love Lush's look- the blackboards and how busy everything is. It's hard to know where to look, but somehow it's still easy to find the right product. The people in the stores are always really friendly and helpful, although they do try very hard to sell stuff to you. Still, what shop assistant doesn't? ;)

This is a display of bath bombs, known in Lush as Bath Ballistics. They come in all different colours and sizes and fragrances. There's often certain bath bombs on display- like the carrot and bunny shaped bombs for Easter, which you can just see at the top of the photo. My fave bombs are Honey bee and Twilight, which is one with lavender oil to help you get to sleep. I will be reviewing these bombs in a few days.

 Lush also sell amazing soaps, and most of them smell delicious. My favourite Lush soaps are the jelly ones- they are literally like chunks of jelly but they leave your hands feeling really clean and smelling lovely. They're a bit difficult to hold though, jelly and water are a very slippery mix :P The face masks are also really nice, and in the shop they display them next to their main ingredients so you can see exactly what's in them.

I just want to say that all my opinions are genuine, and I am not advertising for Lush. I chose Lush as my brand simply because I love their products, not because I am trying to sell them.

I know so many people who are addicted to Lush like me, if you haven't got any of their products then I seriously recommend them! I could talk on and on and on and on and on about Lush products but that's what I'm going to be doing for the next 2 weeks, so I'll stop now!!! If you have a favourite Lush product then feel free to comment below. I'm always on the lookout for new products to test :)
