Spa Time!

Lush opened in Chester when I was still in school (so 15 years ago? GOOD LORD) and I hated it. It’s on the corner of two of the main streets and you had to walk past it on the other side of the road otherwise you might die from breathing in the smell.

Man, I’m really not good at selling something, am I?

So that’s why despite having a Lush nearby for most of my life, I’ve never really been a huge fan. Over the last year or so, I’ve been given random bits of Lush goodies (which Alex has promptly used before I could even run a bath) and I’ve even fallen for the hype of Snow Fairy (It smells so good! Why is it only available at Christmas? How many bottles can I buy this year?)

My closest Lush store in Broadmead is fine to supply these things when I need to pop in on my way home from work, but when the Bath Spa spa (spa spa spa) store opened recently, it was lovely to be able to wander around and not worry that I was going to knock something over (which happened in the Bristol store at Christmas when a man pushed me!). The store is beautifully big and airy upstairs, with the downstairs area being home to the spa treatment rooms

We made up some of the fresh masks that would end up on display before heading downstairs to check out the various spa treatments on offer. I liked the look of Hard Days Night where you wear PJ’s and the therapist moves your body around to a Beatles soundtrack (which is what puts me off tbh), but the Comforter? looked (and smelt!) more tempting. Each treatment room is beautifully fitted out and the central point for them all is decorated like a farmhouse kitchen, where you can go and have a brew afterwards!

If you’re in need of a little pampering in the South West, head over to Bath for a little lushness!
