When you hear the words World’s Largest, you know it’s going to be good right? I mean no one could say the world’s largest pizza or world’s largest bed is a bad thing. So when I heard whispers surrounding the opening of the world’s largest Lush store, I knew it was time to get excited. Three whole floors and 1,380 square meters of vibrant colours, fresh scents and upbeat sounds await. Welcome to Lush Liverpool – the largest Lush in the world!
Never mind Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory, this place is a real life fantasy factory and a beauty lover’s dream. Whether you’ve come to stock up on some essential Lush bath bombs, fancy treating yourself to a treatment or want to try something new, this is the place to be.
Get your Flower Fix
The second you enter you’re greeted with that familiar scent of essential oils, fresh ingredients and a florist. Wait, what? Yup you heard me, the Lush store at Liverpool is the only one to have a permanent florist filled with locally sourced and seasonal bouquets. As well as potted plants, you can choose from a selection of flowers to put inside a giant bath bomb and create your own personalised bath experience. They’re even wrapped in 100% compostable packaging to keep your bouquets safe for their journey home. The perfect environmentally-friendly flower fix.
As a self-confessed makeup addict, I love to try new products and the entire makeup range at Lush Liverpool has my interest piqued like never before. More than ever I am aware of my impact on the environment and my personal plastic consumption. My makeup products have always been one of those things I’ve accepted as being overly packaged but Lush are here to say no more and offer everything you need to start your own eco-friendly makeup collection.
From naked foundation, refillable vegan lipsticks to package-free highlighting sticks to get you glowing for the beauty gods, this is makeup with a difference. You can even book in with a professional makeup artist to find your perfect everyday look or go glam with a more dramatic finish for an evening out.
Lush care about haircare
It’s time to get this mane in order at Lush’s first in-store HairLab. With over fifty new haircare products, including thirty exclusive items, the HairLab provides cuts, treatments and styling that are tailored to your locks and lifestyle.
The hair technicians at Lush identify the most suitable products and treatments to get your locks in tip top condition and provide exactly what your hair needs. As a naturally curly-haired gal, it’s great to see a whole range of products designed to enhance my curls and cater to all different hair types and styles. Why not try one of the exclusive hair pods at the infusion bar or spend some time relaxing in the lush green surroundings of the styling area, where you could be fooled into thinking you’re on a beautiful tropical getaway.
Time for a pick me up
I think we can all agree shopping is thirsty work, that’s why Lush Liverpool also has its very own tea and coffee bar. Simply bring along a reusable cup or purchase one at the bar and pick from the variety of hot drinks and vegan milks on offer.
Why not sip your coffee in the perfume library and let yourself unwind to the eclectic sounds of Lush’s music collection. Learn about perfumery, aromatherapy and essential oils from the large selection of books recommended by the CEO of Lush and gain an insight into the inspiration behind your favourite products. It would be rude not to try out the fine fragrances whilst you relax and you never know you might even find your new signature scent!
The Lush Spa
Need an escape from the hustle and bustle of the world? Six treatment rooms await you inside the Lush spa to help you fit a little bit of calm into a busy day/week/month/life. The second you step through the spa doors, you’re met with serene atmosphere with gentle, relaxing music to help you unwind.
Whether you’re after a bit of me time or fancy a pamper with your pals, the Lush spa can do it all. Why not try the exclusive Shop, Don’t Drop treatment, only available at Lush Liverpool or one of the many wonderful spa treatments that will make you feel like a whole new person.
Lush at Liverpool is more than just your average Lush. Imagine starting your day with a facial and full body massage, followed by hair styling and a makeover all accompanied by a lovely cuppa. From head to toe, there is a product or treatment available for you as well as many exclusive and classic favourites to try at home. There’s even a party area complete with musical jellies and a bath bomb selfie wall! Lush, Liverpool is not just a shop, it’s a full on sensory experience.
