I really don't get it! My Facebook feed is full of people moaning about being in an online queue or declaring they've been lucky enough to get on the site.
It's only soap?! Whatever they've done to create this hype is admirable!
Have I missed something? Do they turn you into insert name of drop dead gorgeous celeb if you bathe in their products?
IIRC the bath bombs are only about £4 anyway?!?!!

I don't get it either. I know 2 people who got up early to go to the Lush sale. I just see thrush whenever I look at a bath bomb.

I have never had anything from there but cannot stand to walk past the shop. The smell is horrendous and makes my nose itch!

They only ever have a sale after Christmas, so it's the only chance to get things cheaper.

Personally I absolutely love Lush and I don't mind paying the prices for cruelty-free/fair trade/knit your own left-wing etc grin

I think some people have forgotten why they wanted the products and are just caught up in the race to get on the site!

They have doubled their prices over the last 10 years and this is the one and only time they have a sale all year unlike most.

Thing is the sale is usually the Christmas stuff which, yes, is just soap and shower gel. I could understand if their excellent shampoos and conditioners and perfumes were in it.

I just checked and over 100000 are queueing online!

I haven't shopped there in years (since I found out one of the organisations they support is the Hunt Saboteurs -members of whom broke my leg with a fencing post when I was a nipper at a Pony Club meet, inter alia - but I digress grin) but I think they have drastic reductions on their Christmas boxes in particular: I had a friend whose chief pleasure was being at the front of their Boxing Day queue, so she could snap up any of the ones that normally retailed at £100 for a tenner or something.

Plus, the more people post about the queues, the more people are going to the website to see for themselves grin

DD has just excitedly declared that she is in! If this is what she wants to spend her hard earned cash on then who am I to stop her! At least this way I don't have to go onto the shop and have my sinuses dissolved!

PNGirl Mon 26-Dec-16 17:35:54

They used to do "Spend 15 pounds get anything made in December free" including the 100 quid hatboxes. Not so generous these days!

hefzi Mon 26-Dec-16 17:38:56

Ah, PN, that was what my mate used to go for! (Bad luck for any other Geordies hoping to get a look in grin)But if it's no longer an offer, perhaps it's just some good discounts?

I haven't forgiven them for discontinuing Flying Fox shower gel, the only decent product I've had from them!

Our local paper had a picture of a queue of people outside Lush before 9.00 am this morning. I cross the road to avoid it, the stink coming out of the door makes me feel ill. There's plenty of other ethical toiletries to buy instead.

You just prompted me to have a look at the website. I don't mind the odd thing from Lush but where I live the prices of all products are double the UK prices.

There's a queue on the webpage. An actual queue. There are 98,000 people in front of me 😂

PinkSparklyPussyCat Mon 26-Dec-16 17:47:25

It was 99445 when I tried Chicken!

comewoowoowithme Mon 26-Dec-16 17:49:18

Don't they use zero hour contracts?

Soubriquet Mon 26-Dec-16 17:50:14

I love lush. One of my favourite shops

I'm happy to pay full price really. Not worth this hassle to get some bubble bath

Misshatter Mon 26-Dec-16 17:50:20

My DD is another lush fan, 990 in the online queue before being booted off. We bit the bullet and ventured out and got everything she wanted in store all half price.

pansycake Mon 26-Dec-16 17:50:36

They've rebranded it as 'Lust' but it's the same.

Soubriquet Mon 26-Dec-16 17:52:34

My nearest lush is half an hour train ride away sad

WhoKn0wsWhereTheMistletoes Mon 26-Dec-16 17:53:10

I'm a big Lush fan, I had no idea they did this. I must say one of the things I like about them is their clear pricing, unlike Boots and Superdrug with their myriad vouchers and 3for2s.

997,000 ish for me! I closed the page. I will never forgive them for discontinuing sakura bath bombs.

Inadither Mon 26-Dec-16 17:59:21

I can't walk past their shop. Have to trot as fast as I can. The shop stinks. The thought of queuing outside it for hours is enough to make me want to vomit.

ACatastrophicMisintepretation Mon 26-Dec-16 18:01:26

Kitten are you sure they've discontinued Sakura? I bought one just last week and there were loads of them, normal price in the shop?

TheoriginalLEM Mon 26-Dec-16 18:01:38

I used to love lush but the last time I had a lush bath I got the mother of all UTI's and was really ill for a week
