Lush Covent Garden Blogger Event

Hi Everyone!

So this week I went to a make your own face mask workshop being held at Lush Covent Garden for our group of 10 beauty bloggers set up by our organiser Becs. This post is going to be very picture heavy as there was so many cool things to take photos of so beware! 

When we arrived we were greeted by the lovely Sarah Jane who works in PR for Lush and we helped ourselves to treats and drinks as we all made ourselves comfy in a private room at the back.

We all took part in the Lush #crueltyfreekisses campaign which is a world record attempt of the most lip prints collected to raise awareness of using cruelty free cosmetics. The prints are then tracked through Twitter and Instagram. So we all put on a Lush liquid lipstick and puckered up, mine was a gorgeous red/coral shade.

We then set to work on making our Catastrophe Cosmetic face mask, a refreshing mix of anti-oxidant blueberries, redness reducing rose absolute and soothing calamine. Also with Irish moss mucilage made from Irish moss seaweed and glycerine to carry all the benefits of the blueberry juice into the skin to reduce moisture loss.

 We began adding each of the ingredients one by one and stirring into the mixture to form the end product.

I had a brilliant time at the workshop and have to thank Becs and Sarah Jane for organising it for us. It was really interesting to see a product I have personally bought before taken apart ingredient by ingredient and understanding exactly what makes the mask so effective.

 Lush is a  brand that continues to impress me with fantastic, fun and innovating products combined with a great ethical outlook on ingredients and a retail team that quite frankly blow me away every time with such great customer service making the shops really somewhere I enjoy going. It's little things like being greeted warmly as you enter the shop, when I ask about products the team are knowledgeable about what it is they are selling and can answer the questions I fire at them and this event was another example of the passion that comes across from the brand at all opportunities. 

I thought I would finish with a few pictures at the end I took while I was having a sneaky browse before the event, naughty!

I hope you enjoyed this post and do check out Lush's website on , it's literally like a sweet shop for beauty enthusiasts!
