Spotlight

Hearing about the opening of a new outlet of Lush at Mercato we called in today to check it out.  I was a big fan of their bath bombs a good few years back and bought them on a regular basis. I think at that time they were about about 12/14 dhs, a nice little treat and a lovely smelly bath.

Having not stepped foot in a Lush store for some 5 years I nearly choked in shock not at the smell, but at the prices!! Bath bombs are costing a bomb these days!!  Not only have the bath bombs rocketed in price almost everything they sell has atleast doubled in the last five years if not more.

Isn't it so disappointing when you see a small company like that which is geniuinely not a bad product become over commercialised and falls foul on being tagged as greedy?  The Body Shop did exactly the same.  Both these brands in my opinion started off as a low cost, value for money beauty brand, only now to be heading slowly but surely up to high end prices, when they DO NOT have the quality of Lóccitane or Molton Brown.

Anyway I do recommend a visit if you are in the area, it's an interesting little outlet to browse about, and perfect if you are looking for something a bit different as a gift. 

There is a nice Lóccitane outlet there too ....
