On the Email we were informed that the night was a special preview evening the day before the shop opened to the general public. Brilliant! I thought. A 'special night' for us to get to know a bit more about the Lush brand, try some new products and have a sneaky peek at the Lush SPA.
(Excuse the picture quality! I left my Camera in the car didn't I?!)
BUT, (and there is a but) in those 15 minutes, and from what I could see of the shop it seems like a brilliant little gem! The spa was amazing, and I'd love to go there for a birthday or special event. We got a sneak peek at some of the treatments and one caught my eye, which involved tailoring the massage around a word like 'mind cleanser' and using different scents and techniques which are meant to achieve that state of mind. I thought this was a really nice added touch to a normal massage and defiantly adds a more personal level.

Overall I will happily go back to this shop, I loved the layout and the SPA is something I would definitely like to look into. I still love Lush and I now love knowing that I live on the doorstep of where lush all began. However the event it self was a bit of a let down and I think we could have got a lot more out the evening if we weren't crammed in like sardines!
I will be heading down again soon and will hopefully get the chance to find out a bit more about the history of the shop and its unique qualities!
Hope this wasn't to much of a rant!
Have you been to the original Lush? What did you think?
