Review: Lush Store, Vegas Style

I’ve ordered Lush products online, but never had the opportunity to visit an actual Lush store.  All I can say is, WOW.

Lush creates homemade bath and body products out of all natural and often organic ingredients.   Lush creates vegetarian products that are 74% vegan, 65% preservative free and are created without animal testing and wasteful packaging.  From luxurious soaps to frothy bath products and shampoo bars, this is the stuff dreams are made of.

The Las Vegas Lush store is located in the Shoppes at Mandalay Place at the Mandalay Bay hotel.  Open until midnight, our 10:30 p.m. arrival left us plenty of time to browse, sniff and feel.

When I entered the store I was immediately greeted by smiling faces.  “Can I help you?”  My answer?  “I came all the way from Virginia to be in this very store!”   When their smiles turned to puzzled looks I explained I was there on business but was determined to visit my first Lush store despite the busy schedule.

“You’ve never been here before?  Then how would you like a hand massage?”  From there it is almost a blur.  A charming employee began massing my hands and arms with lotions, potions and scrubs.  She explained ingredients, products and scents.  I was in heaven.

After being completely spoiled I broke out a list of cosmetics I promised to bring back for others.  The Lush employee immediately raced back and forth, filling my basket with everything my friends and co-workers ordered.

What Lush items did I get for myself?

If you live near a Lush Cosmetics store you’ve got to take time for a visit.  Their employees are friendly, knowledgeable and will spoil you rotten.  The store is beautiful, clean and almost mesmerizing.  If you are sensitive to scents, however, you may be bothered by the strong smells of many of the products.

My next purchases?  I plan to save for a skin moisturizer, hair conditioner, Olive Branch Shower gel, Grass Shower Gel, Caca Rouge or Caca Brun bar and Wiccy Magic Muscles.  Of course with each product comes a review, so stay tuned.

What are your favorite Lush products?
