Hey there, hi there!
I’m happy to say my first Lush Holiday order arrived from England today. Squee! I only got a few things as I’m currently clearing out my Lush stash and trying to see what I do and do not need to stock up on but I wanted to do a little low down here because many of you are curious about ordering from England. Now Lush is readily available in stores (look for your location here) and online to US shoppers but if you’ve been tempted to order from Lush UK because you’ve wanted to indulge in some of the Gorilla Perfumes we haven’t yet gotten or exclusive items that Lush US doesn’t carry, I wanted to give you a brief run down.
In my first order I got:
- Gorilla Perfume Love Fragrance
- Lush Iced Wine (Large Size)
- Lush Lip Dip
- Lush Buche de Noel Cleanser
- Lush Glogg Shower Gel (Medium Size)
- Lush Snow Fairy Lip Tint
- Lush Maple Taffy Lip Balm
My total cost plus shipping was £57.73 ($91.64)
Now unfortunately I have yet to see Lip Dip arrive on the US site so I replaced that with one of Lush’s regular Lip Scrubs and I added in a Tuca Tuca Fragrance to replace the Love I purchased from the UK and my total on the US site comes to $93.65.
I actually I saved a few bucks shopping from the UK and I got two items I can’t yet get in the US.
So you see if you’re a bit scared of ordering from the UK don’t be! I placed my order on Sept 30 and it arrived today October 6th. That’s actually faster than if I ordered from Lush US on regular shipping methods.
Pretty sweet right?
Now keep in mind that you should ask your credit card, bank, or debit card issuer if International Conversion Rates apply. I do alot of shopping overseas and my bank waives the fee in all cases whenever I use my debit card. In some cases credit cards charge $10 or so for the fee however ask them nicely and they will probably waive it. Just do a little research prior to your purchase so you know if “surprise” fees pop up.
Secondly, I suggest going to the Lush UK site filling your cart and proceeding to do so on the Lush US site as well. Compare the carts and see if it’s worth ordering or not.
Hope this helps!
Happy Shoppin’ which ever site you choose to order from!
