I don't think that I have been more excited about a gift set than when Lush announced that they would be offering consumers the chance to purchase Lush Spa. As a collector and slight fanatic, I am embarrassed to say that I have never experienced one of their spa treatments; a fact that I am keen to eradicate over the next 12 months. This gift set is supposed to offer users the chance to experience a very personal spa treatment - one that can be enjoyed in the comfort of their own homes.
Priced at £29.95, this is rather an expensive investment. While it's half the price of most treatments available in the Lush stores, it's still more than the worth of the five items featured in the set. So is it actually worth it? Well, in my opinion, this is one of the best gift sets available from Lush at the moment, and here's why...
Firstly, the design of the box is fantastic. As opposed to the usual single-layered, lift-off-lid design that most of the gift sets feature, this one opens up like a jewellery box - with the top two compartments sliding to the side to reveal the bottom layer underneath. I won't deny that when I discovered this, I gave something of a girlie squeal and ran off to find my flatmates so they too could appreciate my finding. They were less than impressed...
Secondly, this gift set features four products that you cannot buy anywhere else, and while Lush have offered three of these products as limited editions over the years, the fourth item has never been commercially released before, so it's the first opportunity fans have of trying it out for themselves.
This gift set contains:
This is a well-balanced gift set - one that targets every area of your body and takes you through a comforting and highly-cleansing journey. Relax in the bath with Golden Slumbers - not forgetting to scrub those overworked feet with Stepping Stone whilst pampering your skin with The Comforter?. Once you've dried yourself down, moisturise yourself with Therapy? before massaging your temples with Dream Time and settling down to a well-deserved rest.
As well as cosmetics, I was surprised and rather impressed when I opened the lid of Lush Spa and found a beautiful set of postcards in a nicely-presented envelope. These would look fantastic on the wall and I plan on putting mine up in the bathroom to give it a little colour while I'm enjoying these products.
I am so excited to try these items - especially the body scrub and bath bomb and will post reviews on all of these items when I have had a chance to appreciate them all.
