Lush Spa London

Lush spa
Everyone needs a little me time now and then to help relax, unwind and recharge the batteries. 

As you all know I love Lush products, but I have never visited the Lush Spa before. So when I booked a Lush Spa treatment at Chelsea, London I couldn't wait.



Lush Spa

The shop is on the Kings Road in Chelsea. They do lots of wonderful treatments and picking one was quite a challenge, but I opted for The Comforter (£75). 

To get to the spa you have to walk through the wonderful shop, resisting the temptations to buy the whole shop.

At the end of the shop is a winding stairwell that leads to the basement, the spa is set in a quaint kitchen with tea and massage bars adorning the shelves.

It reminded me for some reason of Alice in Wonderland, I am not quite sure why. Maybe the little bottles with messages dotted around.

It also had inspiring messages written on the walls.

I was greeted by my masseur who was lovely and friendly, instantly putting me at ease. He checked that I had no medical complaints and that I wasn't about to drop dead. 

With the formalities over it was on with the show. The Comforter Lush claim, would help stimulate my senses and help me dive into a world of pure imagination.

The room was dreamy with wonderful lighting, floating stars and the most wonderful aroma.

After getting changed I tucked myself up in a warm and cosy duvet, with a soft mattress that felt like a cloud underneath. I rang the bell placed by the bed and my dreaming and uplifting journey began. 


The massage consisted of dreamy music that instantly helped me drift into a deep relaxation. Coated with a hot chocolate ex-foliating body scrub I was instantly relaxed. I did every now and then have the temptation to eat the product, but that soon passed. 


The rose scented bubbles and rose massage that followed was wonderfully rhythmic and allowed me to drift off. An hour drifted by and I was seriously chilled by the end. 

When the massage was completed, I was offered a wonderfully refreshing drink of candy floss and elderflower juice. This was the sweet kick back to life that I needed.

I cannot stress how wonderful The Comforter was, it certainly lived up to its name. Considerable thought has gone into every step of this massage which was totally uplifting. I was seriously chilled by the end and wonderfully relaxed.  



I will certainly be visiting again to try out one of the many other massages on offer.

What do you do to relax and unwind? Do you have a favourite massage?

  3. How fun Lucy! I didn't know Lush had a spa. That makes me want to take a spa day. Although I will have to find somewhere that serves delicious drinks at the end like yours.

    1. It was brilliant fun and wonderfully relaxing. You could try the drink at home if you can buy candyfloss and elderflower juice with a dash of sparkling water. Prepare yourself it is very sweet Lucy x

  4. A candy floss drink?! Did the juice dissolve the candy floss? I'm so intrigued. The massage sounds great, I've never been for one myself but it sounds dreamy.

  5. Alice in Wonderland...how lovely are the little messaged bottles! Lush always gives that little bit extra with their brand and overall customer care. Sounds so relaxing; lovely final touch with the candy floss and juice. Glad you had a nice time :-)

  7. I can't lie, I find the smell of Lush shops very difficult to deal with, it's so overpowering! Having said that, you totally sell their spa treatments to me! What I wouldn't do for a massage just now... B xx

    1. The spa does not have the same smell as the shop. They coat you in wonderful chocolate that did wonders for my skin so hydrating Lucy x

  8. This all sounds wonderful! I had no idea that Lush even did personal treatments, I might have to look into it! I really love the little bottles with the messages too, lovely idea!
