My Christmas present from one of my friends Katie, was a voucher to use at a Lush Spa. We finally got the chance (8 months later) to use it, so last week we went for a two day get-away to Bath.
Neither of us knew what to expect, not having heard much about Lush Spas. We were booked in for the Tailor Made treatment, which is a 30 minute deep-tissue massage on an area of choice.
We arrived at the Lush store twenty minutes early (super keen), so they treated us to a free hand-massage with one of their massage bars (if I remember correctly it was the Yes Yes Yes bar). Once our therapists came to get us, they took us downstairs into the official Lush Spa.
The decor was amazing! It felt like we were in a house that belongs in Alice in Wonderland. We got to choose which massage bar we wanted for our massage – both of us went for Each Peach. They used the Big Blue bath bomb for the steamer/mist, which made the room smell insane. They also had a jelly, cooled on ice which they used to put on any knots. I have no idea what it was called, but I’m pretty sure it can’t be bough in a Lush shop.
The massage itself was incredible. It was just the right level of gentle yet hard enough to actually making a difference. The music in the background was slightly questionable. It was meant to follow a “at sea” theme, so the playlist was filled with shanty covers. I wasn’t a massive fan, although I see what they were trying to do and it made me giggle nonetheless.
After our massages we were told to sit in their little lounge area to have some tea (the way to my heart). They added a drop of rum, which at first I was convinced was going to ruin my beloved tea but it actually tasted good.
Overall, it was such a fun experience. Out of all my spa days/massages I can say that this one is my favourite so far. I loved the amount of effort and care they put into a 30 minute treatment. They made it special and so worth it.
The therapists were so friendly, which added that extra little touch to the afternoon.
I would definitely recommend a trip to a Lush Spa. It’s such an incredible experience that is bound to go beyond your expectations.
Thank you Katie, for best belated Christmas present ever. Nobody does late Christmases like you do!
