I have been a fan of Lush for almost 5 years now. Their products have definitely become a part of my everyday routine. I die for their body scrubs, cleansers and bath bombs. So a few days ago, me and my sister went to their 2-week old branch in City Walk Dubai, which turned out to be an awesome visit. One of the things I like about Lush stores is that they always have a friendly and accommodating staff who make you feel at ease. I also love the fact that the stores are always so colorfully decked and laid out. That explosion of different flavors and smells just instantaneously uplift your spirit. I also love the fact that they are so creative with the products names and packaging. Most of them look good enough to eat!

My ultimate goal when I visited Lush store in Citywalk this weekend was to try and learn about products that can be used as a home spa treatment. What I didn’t really expect was to see the best…Lush store… EVER! I felt like a kid in a candy store with the massive selection of products, plus unique, in-store features that made my visit truly one-of-a-kind. And it was such a treat to have an ultra-friendly and knowledgeable Lush crew to guide me through the whole experience. I was fortunate enough to have been assisted by Betty, who was amazing in answering my queries and definitely took the time in explaining each of the products. She even went into the products’ key ingredients plus their benefits. I wouldn’t be surprised if she has a PhD in Lush-ology!

Personally, my favorites are the Buffy Body Butter Soap, Sexy Peel, Ocean Salt Face And Body Scrub, Cup Of Coffee Mask, Don’t Look At Me Mask, Popcorn Lip Scrub And Aqua Marina Cleanser.  Oh, and don’t forget the amazing bath melts and bath bombs.  I also love that Lush is cruelty free and continuously fights animal testing. Their bottles are also 100% recycled. In fact, you can go to any stores to return empty tubs, and in return, you’ll get a freebie.


The Lush City Walk branch is the only branch with a Hair Lab in the Middle East. Hair Lab is where you can have hair treatment using the awesome lush products. Email to set up an appointment. They also have a lounge called The Gorilla Perfume Lounge where you can custom made perfumes while listening to some good tunes.

Want to visit Lush as well? I promise you – it’s one shopping experience you will never forget! Check them out at City Walk 1, Dubai. The store is open from 10 am to 10 pm, Sunday to Thursday.
