In Photographs: 220 Exclusive Products at The NEW LUSH Ltd Oxford Street

If you’re a regular reader of MANFACE, you’ll know what a fan I am of LUSH Ltd. Their products, drive and passion for changing the way we buy cosmetics as well as their impact on the world we live in is commendable and they deserve every ounce of success they’ve received.

Last year I was invited down to spend a few days with LUSH Ltd at their factories and LUSH Ltd Kitchen, a then brand new venture making small batches of experimental and old-favourite products. It was a big project that created a lot of buzz around the brand and truly pinned them on the social media map in 2014.

So thinking Mark Constantine (brand founder) and his team of Lushettes would be after a break and a bit of a rest this year; that clearly wasn’t on the cards. LUSH Ltd Oxford Street is one of the most fabulous stores I’ve ever visited. 3 enormous floors filled with 220 new and exclusive products as well as a LUSH Ltd Spa, that at full capacity, will offer 25 treatments per day. I was there for a good few hours and left exhausted, it was so overwhelming!

Instead of going on at length about every mortal detail, I spent the time taking photos; getting into every nook and cranny for you to see. I came away with a big bundle of products that I’ll be featuring tomorrow; every product is part of the new 220-strong offering.

A mountain of massage bars. There weren’t any new additions here but between each pile of bars were the raw ingredients for you to smell and play with. How beautiful is this display?

I hate showing you things you can’t get hold of but these cookies for the launch day, made into LUSH Ltd products, were absolutely delicious. I only had 2… 3… ok 4… ok probably more than 10.

The candles are back and smell incredible, made with natural bamboo votives. However, at £22, they’re pretty small and only burn for 24 hours.

Daddy-O is my favourite shampoo of all time. It now comes in a solid conditioner bar. I’m in love and definitely bought one to review.

The ground floor and I’m about a third of the way in, it’s absolutely huge! Mark Constantine is in front chatting and taking photos with his adoring LUSH Ltd employees (it was so lovely they were also invited to the event; they make the magic happen after all!)

Fragrances everywhere including a few new ones. The focus really is on touching, playing and exploring. Nothing here is behind glass or hidden away from the customer.

If you remember by trip to the LUSH Kitchen, I made this for the first time and has been my favourite mask for month. Unfortunately due to ingredient sourcing, production was pushed back until… TODAY. You have to try this and if I could buy one for every MANFACE reader, I would!

During my interview with Mark last year, he talked about dying his hair green as he didn’t have enough lemons in his secret upcoming product. Well here it is, all balanced and non-greenifying.

Congratulations to the winner of this from my Flash Twitter Giveaway. This foaming, coffee body scrub wash (I know that sounds like I’m reeling off random words) is to die for. There’s also one in Candy Floss.

  1. Will the 220 new products be available online? I’m from the U.S. but really want to try these new products please help

    • Soon hopefully! I know they’re still perfecting a lot of them as even though they were on sale, they weren’t quite ready!

  2. I feel exhausted but excited looking at the new line up – I’m going down to London next week! The Daddy-O solid shampoo is topping the list and the coffee face mask too. Thank you for photographing so many of the new products – I have been eagerly searching the internet since the doors opened! x

  3. The grandma you pointed out at the emotional brilliance display just so happens to be one of the LUSH founders Mo Constantine

    • OMG! I didn’t clock her and I’ve MET HER BEFORE. Well don’t I just feel ashamed Jonathan! Haha x

  4. So.. I had to stop reading mid-post because I became so jealous over all the products that will never make it stateside, BUT then I succumbed to the pressure and continued to read and by read I mean look over the pictures, over and over again. Next time I’m hoping across the pond, I’ve got to check this store out.

    • Haha sorry Josh. However, I have it on good authority that once the products have settled down (some still aren’t ready) and they see which sell and which don’t, the plan is to roll these products out nationwide and internationally. Jack Constantine said that they’re using the Oxford Street store as a place to test and experiment with new products, the success of which will determine if they move forward or not.

  5. Great insight! Hope to get down there soon!

    Just a quick question, do you know if the Cup ‘O Coffee mask a kitchen exclusive/Oxford Street exclusive or do they intend to roll it out across the country or put it on their website?

    Thanks a bunch!
    Joe 🙂

    • I have it on relatively good authority that this WILL be rolled out soon. The 220 new products will be available online first and then depending on success and feasibility (shop sizes etc) they will be rolled into store soon.
