Let’s talk about Lush, baby

November 2, 2015

There are certain events that make me so happy to be a blogger, and this recent Lush event had me gushing for about a week. We got to make bath bombs, try out new products and cult favorites, PETA was there, and the Lush staff are just so amazing. They also had an art installation on the floor that was breathtaking, I spent a good 10 minutes mesmerised. I was on a Lush high after I left the event and then I opened the goody bag…. ah, it was a good day to be a blogger.

lush uae I’m currently using the Baked Alaska soap and apart from the delightful psychedelic print, it smells great and has a fresh, clean scent. lush uae lush uae lush uae I am so intrigued by these little bars on a stick- they’re actually hot oil treatments! Tangled is a rosewood and ylang ylang treatment that you slowly add hot water to until it turns creamy. You apply it to dry hair for 20 minutes and it detangles and conditions. *Adds to never ending Lush wish list lush uae lush uae lush uae lush uae lush uae A sparkly bubble bar? SOLD. Check them out here. lush uae Nightwing is this magical jiggly fruit jelly thing to cleanse skin and hair, you can store it in the fridge for an extra morning pick me up effect.  It contains aloe vera, lime juice jelly and Vit E for a skin softening effect and it smells lovely.  lush uae lush uae The art installation had “The Experimenter” projected on the floor, it was so magical! I highly recommend watching it here.

It’s basically a shampoo bar that contains seaweed to soften hair and sea salt to give it body. I don’t know about the body part (big hair, naturally) but it leaves my hair squeaky clean and soft without over drying, and it lathers up quickly. I’m definitely taking it on my next trip, it’s easier to travel with and you can break off a piece instead of carrying the whole thing.

So, yeah, the Lush addiction continues 🙂 Do you have any Lush recommendations?

You can shop for Lush products online on their website, they deliver to India as well.

You can follow them on Facebook and Instagram too.

I got my hair colour done at Pastels Salon only this time I skipped the phone call and used the Vaniday app to book my appointment. The folks at Vaniday were nice enough to give me a 350 aed voucher which I really appreciate, the longer my hair gets, the more I have to spend on it *sulks*. yellow eyeshadow

The app was pretty easy to sign up for, you can book an appointment by either searching for your salon ( if they’re listed as a vendor) or exploring their list of vendors around your location (although the latter didn’t always show results despite there being a bunch listed on the app).

They also have lots of special offers for users who book their appointments through the app. I think that apart from two-click process, the offers and regular discount codes they send across to users are a huge perk. I mean, we spend so much on grooming and looking beautiful, every little discount helps, right? You can either link your card to the app and pay online or pay cash at the salon.

Vaniday app

I was really impressed with the staff behind the Vaniday helpline, I mistakenly booked the wrong service and the helpline staff sorted out the issue in minutes. I also had an issue with my usual hair stylist being unavailable (she no longer works there *sob*) but once again, their helpline staff called me to inform me and suggested another stylist. They were extremely helpful and polite, it’s almost like a personal butler service.

The Vaniday app is new, I think they still have some issues to sort out, but I think the app has lots of potential. They already have a nice selection of  hair salons, nail salons, barbershops, and spas, and I hope to see this list grow.

You can download the app here, and follow them on Instgram, Facebook and Twitter.
