You Can Host a Free Party at Lush

lush bacheloretteLush is one of the best beauty stores ever. I mentioned in this post how much I love their Big Shampoo. I am also a pretty big fan of their bath bombs and face masks. I don’t buy things there very often, because they are pretty spendy. However, the bath bombs and soaps smell so good that I put them in my drawers to make my clothes smell yummy.

I have also used Lush bars of soap to make liquid hand soap. Their products are great because they are natural, but they do use dyes. I am allergic to a few red dyes, so I have to be really careful.

popcorn lip scrubI recently got a gift card for Christmas from my friend K, and I bought a few fun things. One was the Popcorn Lip Scrub. Lip scrubs are definitely a frivolous thing, I’m pretty sure you can easily exfoliate with a washcloth. However, I am a frivolous, and my lips get chapped in the winter. You just rub a bit of this on your lips, and no more chapped lips! It also smells and tastes yummy. At some point I want to make some myself, and I will post the recipe. 

bachelorettepartySomething we found out about Lush when I got engaged was that many locations let you throw a party there after hours! My friend K and my sister planned a stop there for my bachelorette party. You reserve the store after hours, and they let you bring your own food and drinks. You need a minimum of 10 people, and each person has to purchase $25 worth of products (the rules probably change periodically). That’s it! Basically, it’s free, because you go home with the products that you choose. They did our colors with this color wheel, and gave us each a mini facial and hand exfoliation. We got to play around with the make-up and give each other makeovers. It was a super fun girl’s night- plus we were all made up when we went out afterward.

Does anyone know of other places that let you do cool private parties?
