Lush Re-Opening Event + Product Haul

Happy Fri-yay! I am so glad it’s the weekend (and also almost the end of May, if you can believe it or not). A few weeks ago, I was lucky enough to be able to attend the grand re-opening of Lush at the St. Louis Galleria Mall. They had a special pre-opening event for influencers and press and I made it on the guest list! There were other bloggers there that I was so glad to be able to meet, and the PR rep for this store is absolutely amazing. I’m going to go over the event a little bit and then talk about my insane Lush haul (aka some of my absolute FAVORITE products). Let’s dive into this.


Lush Re-Opening Event + Product Haul

Recap of the event:

This was SUCH an awesome press event. The entire store was open an hour early for us, so we were able to be there before the crazy crowd (and trust me…people were already lined up at the door an hour before). They had this gorgeous flower bar and we all got to take home a fresh bouquet of flowers aka I died and went to heaven. Lauren (the PR rep) let me know that I was welcome to bring a +1 and so I gladly brought along my baby sister.

The week before the re-opening event, the team sent me a giant care package full of their newest products and tried and true favorites. I was expecting a little gift box but got a huuuuge box full of goodies. A+ work, there.

The first thing they had us do was get with an employee to do a skin test and consultation. I was REALLY glad for thing because while I know what I love at Lush, I wanted to be introduced to some new products to fall in love with.

I worked with their employee, North. She was AWESOME! She took amazing care of me and showed me products I absolutely fell in love with. All of the products I left with were brand new to me, and the face mask I took home is going to be my new favorite. They graciously gave me a little goodie bag full of the products from my consultation and sent me home with the Mother’s Day gift box!

Lush Haul:

HOLY SHOOT. I got SOOOOO many products I want to talk about. Ok. Let’s do this. Also, don’t worry: I’ve linked ALL of these products at the end of this post so you can check them out. I gotchu. 

Yuzu & Cocoa Shower Cream:

This shower cream is fantastic. If you looooove sweet scented shower creams, you will be obsessed with Yuzu & Cocoa. It has a blend of cocoa and citrus which sounds crazy but actually works. The featured ingredient is grapefruit, which does WONDERS for your skin. It leaves you soft and moisturized.

Emotional Brilliance Translucent Powder:

Ya’ll know that I am oily as HECK. I’ve talked about it before and you KNOW I am on a quest to find the perfect mattifying powder. When North introduced me to this powder, I was super wary because it looks pink. And I am pale. Somehow, even though it looks pink, it looks completely natural on my skin. It claims to even out ALL skin tones and work evenly. They also added jojoba oil to make sure it doesn’t dry out your skin.

Jackie Oats Color Supplement:

This the lightest foundation shade (lolz see the above comment about how pale I am). It smells amazing. It has a blend of oat milk, aloe vera and honey keeps skin’s cool, while a creamy ivory color evens out skin tone. It states that it is a full coverage foundation, but I think it works more like a BB cream on me. I still felt like I needed to use concealer or mix with another foundation to get the coverage I usually feel comfortable with. It will be perfect for the summer when I use less foundation.

Lemony Flutter Cuticle Butter:

I AM OBSESSED. I am the QUEEN of hangnails and dry, cracked fingers. I would drink lotion if I could. I put a little bit on my fingers before giving myself an at-home manicure and my cuticles were soft and smelled like lemons. I will definitely be making this an all the time staple in my home.

WHOOSH Shower Jelly:

Shower jellies are so fun. They literally feel like jello. If you haven’t experienced it before, it is definitely different. This one is fantastic to wake you up in the morning. It has a mixture of fresh lemon, lime and grapefruit juices, revitalizing rosemary and balancing geranium. It wakes you up, gets you ready for the day.

Ocean Salt Face and Body Scrub:

This scrub is a cult classic is you know anything about Lush products. It is sworn by by TONS of beauty gurus all over the internet, and I’m joining the ranks. Not only does it leave your skin butter soft, but it also smells like the ocean. AKA AMAZE.

Mask of Magnaminty Face and Body Scrub:

I tried this for the first time at the Lush re-opening. There are several masks I love, this this one really caught my attention. It is cool, refreshing, and brightening. It has gentle exfoliation but doesn’t scratch your skin at ALL. completely fantastic and it is self-preserving! There are  loads of ground aduki beans to exfoliate flaky or dry skin, vanilla absolute to calm redness and honey to soothe and moisturize.

Ultrabland Facial Cleanser:

This facial cleanser is my new favorite. It is perfect for taking my makeup off at the end of the day without irritating my skin. My eyes are extremely sensitive so most makeup removers really bother my delicate eye area. This doesn’t at all, and there is no need for an extra moisturizer because it is built right in. It is 20% rose water, which soothes and reduces redness, making Ultrabland gentle enough for everyone’s skin.

Vanishing Cream Facial Moisturizer:

Just in case you DO need a little extra moisture, this is the lotion for your face. If you have OILY skin (aka ME) then you REALLY need this. It has toning witch hazel, which is a miracle worker for oily skin. This moisturizer contains balancing lavender absolute and grape seed oil to soften and help make things right with your skin. Because if your skin is oily, that means it isn’t getting enough moisture in other areas. So drink more water and put vanishing cream on your face: doctor’s orders.

Dark Angels Face and Body Cleanser:

This is the very first Lush products I ever tried. It is STILL one of my go-tos. I use it as a gentle exfoliator a few times a week. It is a little to harsh for me to use every day, but when I use it 2x weekly, my skin GLOWS. Its rhassoul mud base deeply cleanses to help prevent breakouts, while vitamin-rich cold pressed organic avocado oil nourishes skin to leave it soft and lightly hydrated. Hello, angel!

SHOP MY FAVORITE LUSH PRODUCTS:


So, as you can SEE: this event was beyond fun and this company really takes care of their customers and influencers. I couldn’t believe the amount of wonderful products I received (and my sister!) and the kindness of their employees. Shopping at this store will ABSOLUTELY be in my future and if you are in the St. Louis area, this NEEDS to be in your future, too. 

PIN THIS FOR LATER:

On top of everything else, the fact that they are all about sustainability and cruelty free products. I always try my best to use products that are good for the environment, good for my skin and kind to animals.

  20. Stephanie | 16th May 17

    Oh man – you got some great goodies here! I’ve been a LUSH-aholic since high school and I don’t think that’s changing anytime soon. Whenever my boyfriend and I pass by it in the mall, he has to drag me away so I don’t spend my entire bank account on bath bombs and bubble bars ahha! I gotta try some of these because there are a few I’ve never tested before!

    Stephanie // SheSawStyle.com

    • Taylor Mobley | 17th May 17

      LOL. I would spend all my money on bath bombs too! You will love all of these!

  21. Amanda U. | 16th May 17

    Lush is seriously my FAVORITE, the body scrub you got is in my top 5 favorite products. I could spend hourrrrs in Lush!

    • Taylor Mobley | 17th May 17

      ME TOO girlfriend. What are your top 5 products??? I need to try them all!

  22. Courtney Andrews | 16th May 17

    This looks like such a fun event! I already see several things I want to try πŸ™‚

  23. Bryanna | 17th May 17

    What a freakin cool event! There’s not a close Lush location to me, so when I can get my hands on it I go all out too. Everything in your “easy guide to lush skincare” was what I was going to comment about. I’m a bit of a skincare person when it comes to their products. That ocean salt in particular looks absolutely amazing! I have to get my hands on it.

    xoxo Bryanna | Coming in Clutch

    • Taylor Mobley | 17th May 17

      Thanks girlfriend!!! The Ocean Salt is AMAZING.It does WONDERS for my skin. and smells amazing which is a bonus.

  24. Lacey | 24th May 17

    Lush is my absolute fave! The bath bombs and face masks are my fave… and of course ocean salt! That’s a must have!

    xx,
