Question of the Week will provide us with a beauty related topic we can discuss for the week, sharing opinions and such. Each week I’ll include some of your comments and opinions from last week’s topic – obviously I can’t do that for this one since it’s the first one! So let’s kick off week one..
What do you think of Lush?
As for what I think of Lush: OVER. FUCKING. RATED.
I used to work at Lush a couple of years ago and I absolutely loved it, it was hands down the best job I’ve ever had (and I’ve had quite a few for an 18 year old). I loved the products and the 50% staff discount was definitely not to be scoffed at. We had good training (not so good pay but I was only 16 at the time so it wasn’t a big deal) and it was generally a great job.
But sadly I think Lush has really sold out in the last year or so. Since they made it big in America they’ve really lost their awesome British charm and although I’m happy for them that they’ve become really big, I can’t help but feel I loved it so much more when it was smaller.
I hate to say it but I am sick to the back damn teeth of seeing Lush posts in my reader. That doesn’t mean if you write Lush posts I’m going to stop reading your blog or anything silly like that, I just skip over every Lush post I see. In the last few months there’s seriously been about 10 Lush posts a day in my reader and IT’S DRIVING ME MAD! Yes they’re lovely, interesting products but they’re not the most amazing thing in the world. It’s great that more people are discovering it, don’t get me wrong, it’s just become SO DAMN OVERRATED!
I’ve had a few people ask me why I don’t post about Lush since I used to work there and consequently have a good product knowledge. There’s a few reasons, the main ones being that I can’t be the only person who can’t bear the overload of Lush posts all over Blogger, and because in all honesty I’m not nearly as in love with the products as I used to be because after having paid half price for them, they seem so expensive afterwards for what they are. Not to mention their prices have skyrocketed since then.
Haha, I don’t mean for this post to be a total downer. Like I said, it’s great that Lush are becoming more recognised and more people are discovering and loving it, but it IS seriously overrated in my opinion.
BUT! Question of the Week isn’t just about my opinion. It’s a chance for all of us to share and discuss our views. So tell me – what do you think of Lush? Love it or hate it? What do you like and dislike about it, as a company and their products? Tell all!
And please leave your suggestions for future Question of the Week topics! :)
Please note that if I choose to feature your comment in next week’s post, I may need to shorten/edit it for obvious reasons. Thanks!
Edit: Please don’t think I’m having a dig at you or your blog if you ever post about Lush. I did explain above, I’m not! I’m not childish enough to think any less of someone over a damn company XD I just simply don’t read Lush posts, that’s all!
