LIFESTYLE | LUSH SUMMER BEAUTY EVENT

Recently I was lucky enough to head down to my local Lush store for their Lush Summer Beauty Event - an opportunity any blogger would be best pleased with as it's practically a necessity to love lush to be a blogger!

It's taken me a while to get this post up because one evening when I was shopping, my phone (with all the photos taken at the event and of the products) decided to leap out of my hand and smash on the floor of TK Maxx. TOTALLY NOT MY FAULT. Then when I went to get it fixed, I realized I'd lost my phone. It later turned up beneath a bag of cat litter in my best friends car and then turned out it couldn't be fixed at the place I wanted to fix it at anyway. FAIL.

The event, much like past ones, was basically to introduce us bloggers to some of Lush's biggest/best summer products - think awesome powder deodorant for holiday, minty toothy tabs for festivals and suntan lotion that protects you whilst helps you gain a nice healthy tan. Score.

We spent most of the evening mooching about, trying some of these products and finding out more. A lot of the products I thought would be perfect for my holiday to Mexico later this year, which is actually a holiday-come-travelling tour, meaning I have to pack light. Toothy tabs were my first thought because not only would they be light but they're also really easy to use - you simply crush a tab between your two front teeth, add a tiny bit of water and then wash away. Also, we all know the chances of having an actual toothpaste squeezy tube thing explode in your luggage, which is a chance I'd rather not take...

The sunblock was products were also a pretty different and nifty idea where rather then getting suntan lotion in a bottle, instead you have it in a block. It's quite straightforward to use and lasts ages, as well as offering a wide range of factors. Again, this is perfect for holiday because it's easier to pack!

One of my favourite goodies to try out from the event was the Seanik shampoo bar, a particular product that was recommended to me during my mini solid/dry shampoo consultation. I talked about how my hair was thick but dull with very little volume and was recommended this product to help with that. I have to say, after getting over the initial weirdness of using a shampoo bar for the first time ever, this product was effective like a shampoo and did leave my hair feeling softer and looking a little more bouncy/with more volume etc.

As you can see, the bar creates a shampoo/foamy effect when wet, despite being a solid product!
I think when I do finally go on holiday/travelling, I'll definitely be purchasing a couple of these along with some toothy tabs! I think I'll also be looking into getting some of that magical suntan block that helps speed along the tanning process this summer - since I doubt we're going to get much sun naturally..!

Although Lush have always been known for their innovative products, I never even thought about the wide range of shampoo bars, suntan blocks and general summer holiday friendly things they'd have just for summer or perfect for travelling. I can imagine choosing to buy a lot of your hair and body products from Lush would make a big difference and not just in suitcase space!

I'll also be reviewing a few other freebies I managed to blag at the event soon so keep an eye out and definitely pop into your local Lush if you're heading on holiday anytime soon...

What do you think? Will you be treating yourself to any of these awesome products? Let me know with a comment!
