I know no one would read what i write here because everyone just rushes down to the giveaway rules but anyway:
the first time I got to know about Lush was in 2010 when I first visited London. our couchsurfing host took us to the Portobello road market and we were following him around like 6 ducklings for a couple of hours. when we reached the place where Lush was (I think they're closed now :( ) he asked us in his gorgeous and knee weakening british accent: have you ever been to Lush? we hadn't, of course, so he took us inside and oh sweet lord, it smelled so good in there. but because of our Primark dedicated budget we didn't buy anything.
after that visit I decided to move to London for the summer and it happened that I got a job just off the Portobello road. which meant that Lush was always on my way, which also meant that I was getting by english standards, which also meant that I could afford bits and pieces from Lush from time to time. I remember, I fell in love with everything about it and even though not every smell was to my nose and not all prices were to my wallet I loved the staff*, the attitude of the brand, the products and everything in between. I was so sad to come back home from England knowing that there isn't a single Lush store there that I was even planing to write a letter to the owner of Lush asking to open one in here, too.
even though I didn't send out that letter, the Lush store was opened last year after all and even though it's not quite the same as the british ones I still love to sneak inside and look/smell around. and while thinking what I could give away on my blog I figured that it could be something I really like myself. unfortunately, Lush doesn't have anything to do with this, they didn't give me anything to give you away except the things that I paid for myself, but I just really want to introduce people to what they do and what they sell. long story short:
Lush produces and sells a variety of handmade products, including soaps, shower gels, shampoos and hair conditioners, bath bombs, bubble bars, hand and body lotions and face masks. Lush uses fruit and vegetables, essential oils, synthetic ingredients, honey and beeswax in their products. In addition to not using animal fats in their products, they are also against animal testing and perform tests with volunteers instead.
says wikipedia. I would highly recommend finding a nearest Lush store and going to look around. they have amazing stuff in there, besides, the products they sell make really nice presents as well, which I am going to prove below:
I am giving away a gift set from Lush called Out of This World. it consists of two things: a fruity and sparkly Space Girl bath bomb and a star-shaped chunk of Rock Star soap.
when in hot water Space Girl bath bomb starts hissing and turning in water dyeing it this nice purple colour, leaving it sparkly and fragranced. and Rock Star soap seems to be a cute addition to it since it's smells of vanilla. and yes, I sound like a Lush sales person, I know.
the winner of the giveaway will win an unpacked box of these goodies.
