Lush "Save The Reef" Campaign Event

LUSH, Lush Cosmetics, Save The Reef, Events, Bbloggers,

Last Wednesday night, I was lucky enough to be invited to attend the Lush Save The Reef Campaign event. Lush were holding these events across a few of their Melbourne stores, so I opted to attend the Melbourne Central store to learn more.

As you can probably imagine from a campaign name such as "Save The Reef," this one was literally all about saving the reef - the Great Barrier Reef, that is. I was lucky enough to grow up in beautiful sunny Queensland but never had the chance to actually visit this spectacular place. In the back of my head I always imagined I would visit and see all the amazing bright colours. I was absolutely horrified to hear what the Great Barrier Reef is headed to, and you should be too.

Above is an artist rendition of what we believe the Great Barrier Reef will look like by 2050. That's a pretty scary idea. I learnt at this event that a lot of this is due to carbon pollution produced by us and our government. To me, that's even scarier. Lush have teamed up with 1 Million Women; an organisation created to try and help combat this. They are currently asking for signatures to help stop the pollution and destruction of the Great Barrier Reef. I signed the petition on Wednesday, you can sign here.

But this event wasn't all bad news. Lush have concocted a gorgeous new product, exclusive to us Aussies - specifically for this campaign, called Life's A Beach. It's created using some pretty amazing products, including sand! Life's A Beach is described as a Body Scrub Powder, and smells absolutely divine!

We were lucky enough to watch the in-store creation of this scrub as well, so we all potted and took home our very own tub of fresh scrubby goodness.

I was surprised at how easy this was to make (although I wouldn't try it at home) and smelt so strong that we actually had to wear facial masks. Once it all mixed in though, the scent became nice and subtle.

As always, I was super impressed by the ethics of Lush. I am so happy I signed the petition to  help stop the pollution of the Great Barrier Reef and I helped make my mark.

I'm so excited to try out the new Life's A Beach Body Scrub Powder. I'll be sure to give a full review once I've tried it more than a handful of times to let you guys know what I think and whether or not Lush lovers overseas need to be jealous!

  1. Petition signed! I've always wanted to visit, but I'm on the other side of the world, haha. It's depressing to think that we could lose it if we keep up with what we are doing :(


    I'm interested to see how well that scrub works. I can't wait to see your full review!

  2. I am about to head over to sign the petition! This is such a great campaign, I am disgusted at how some of politicans are treating our reefs. There needs to be an anti Gina Rhinehart campaign, she is literally "eating" our reefs, no pun intended.. ok maybe a little!
