It’s been on my bucket list for a while, and last month I finally got around to visiting a Lush Spa! I’m a big fan of Lush and their products, so I knew I’d love any of their spa treatments, and I have to say I wasn’t disappointed. My nearest Lush spa is actually in Liverpool (although here’s hoping that Manchester eventually gets one), and me and my sister booked ourselves in for The Comforter?
All Lush spas are themed to give the impression of a rustic English country kitchen to give off a homely vibe, and we certainly received a very friendly Lush welcome. We had a ten minute consultation before the treatments and were talked through the products that would be used – both of which are unique to the spa and cannot be bought from the store. The Comforter? is a full body exfoliation treatment and first uses a luxurious hot chocolate scrub which is melted into a teacup, and after the warm cacao scrub has been applied and removed it is followed by a delicious rose serum which is massaged into the skin. For the duration of the treatment we were kept cosy and warm under heated duvets, and only the portion of the body being worked on at the time is uncovered.
The concept of this particular treatment is to remind you to take life less seriously and there are some cute surprises (I won’t reveal them) which add to the quirky nature of the spa. As with all of the Lush treatments a special soundtrack has been created to add that special touch to the experience, and for this one there is a chocolatey, playful and nostalgic vibe with plenty of recognisable tunes. Here you can hear a sample of the music that set the tone as we entered the room, which was glowing pink with twinkling starlight.
I found this Lush treatment to be a luxurious, fun and magical experience, and one that I won’t forget easily. On top of that my skin felt (and smelled) amazing afterwards because of the gorgeous products that had been used. At £85 it is quite expensive for an hour-long treatment, but well worth it if you want something that is unique and a bit more special than your average massage.
