Last week I had the absolute pleasure of visiting the Lush Leeds Spa event for their newest treatment, Tales of Bath. Visiting the Lush Spa has been on my to do list for the longest time, and it was great to be able to snoop around after hours and get a feel for what it’s all about.
A whole bunch of local bloggers had been invited along, not only to look at the Tales of Bath treatment, but also to have a look at all the fantastic spring products. How cute are these bunches of “carrots”? Lush always nail holiday products, and the Easter bits and bobs this year are fab. I’m particularly in love with the Golden Egg bath bomb melt (yes, combination!) on account of the rich honey toffee scent and oodles of golden shimmer. Scent wise it’s a lot like Honey I Washed The Kids, or (rest in peace) Ma Bar.
After having a thorough nose around the shop, small groups of us were down to the spa… going through the door is, I imagine, a little like stepping through the wardrobe into Narnia. The door to the spa is on the shop floor, sitting at the top of some stairs which lead you underneath the shop. Everything is panelled with beautiful reclaimed wood, and there’s a reassuring air of quiet and calm. You could easily forget that you’re in the centre of Leeds, and that there’s a bustling shop above you.
There are beautiful decorations around the spa and in the various treatment rooms. I fell head over heels in love with these illuminated apothecary bottles.
We learned about some of the spa treatments including The Good Hour, The Comforter, The Sound Bath, and of course… Tales of Bath. The newest spa treatment, Tales of Bath is built around the idea of story, bath and bed. Aside from the shoulder massage and full body sleep inducing massage, you actually take a bath in this gorgeous tub. Mind blown.
Having had a proper look around the Lush Spa, and having seen demos, I am thoroughly determined to visit for a treatment myself. They’re very expensive, but the atmosphere of the spa is unlike anything else I’ve ever seen, and the therapists are just phenomenal. Lush staff always seem to be though, so no surprises there!
It might be after my thesis is in, but I am going to get a spa treatment! I can certainly justify it… PhD is killing me at the moment. Argh. I dealt with the stress of that week by buying a few bits and pieces (currently obsessed with Milky Bath, and back on the Catastrophe Cosmetic face mask) and was over the moon to be given a gift bag with some ace treats inside (the Honey I Washed My Hair shampoo bar gives me life, seriously!). Thanks so much Lush Leeds for having me – it was a fantastic event!
