I hope you’ve made time to pay a visit to Lush! I keep reading on the forums that this sale “sucks” and is nothing compared to last year– and while the latter may be semi-true, I can’t fathom anyone thinking this sale sucks and being disappointed, even in comparison to last year. Buy 1 Get 2 free holiday items? Buy 1 Get 1 gifts? Don’t get spoiled by the fact that Lush has been even MORE generous in past years! They’re giving you free stuff! Be happy!
I made Alex drive me to the brand new Burlington, MA Lush store this year. We got up at 6am to make it in for 8am… silly me, thinking there’d be lines and lines all over. Is no one else obsessed with Lush? Eh, maybe not. Anyway, we arrived and were there for probably a half hour and only one other customer came in (that I noticed, anyway… I was admittedly a bit distracted).
This was my beautiful haul:
Keep it Fluffy Soap ($20/ish chunk)
Porridge Soap ($20/ish chunk)
Angel’s Delight Soap ($20/ish chunk, free)
Snowcake Soap ($20/ish chunk, free)
Demon in the Dark ($20/ish chunk, free)
Extra Virgin Olive Oil ($20/ish chunk, free)
Marzibain bubble bar x 3
Jingle Spells x 3
Christmas Morning x 3
Frothy the Snowman bubble bar x 2 (all free, I totally regret not grabbing more of these…)
Twinkle x 3 (all free)
Chocolate Santa x 3 (all free)
Snowdrop x 2 (all free)
Lush Pud x 2 (all free)
Christmas Kisses x 1 (all free)
Christmas Party x 5 (all free)
White Christmas holiday gift
Happy Showers holiday gift (free)
I, unfortunately, had a bad experience with an employee at the store that made me not want to return. I was frustrated enough to make a post about it on the Lush Forum, but was immediately PM’d by their Team Leader, Lauren. I’ve been corresponding with her a few times a day to fill her in on what happened, and she has been absolutely incredible. Definetly the BEST customer service I have ever had, in any store, in my entire life. She made me feel so much better about the situation (and took the necessary actions in handling the situation with her manager/regional manager) that I will probably go to the Burlington, MA shop exclusively from now on (sorry, Natick!).
I’m going back on Friday to pick up a few things Lauren set aside for me, but my list is growing longer as I think about what I want. If they have more Twinkle or Frothy, I’ll definetly be picking a few up… I also really want a Let Them Eat Cake lippy for Alex’s brother’s girlfriend who wasn’t able to grab one when they visited the shop. And then I am cut off from buying Lush for quite some time!
