“Here’s a link that I think you might be interested in: http://www.cosmetics-to-go.uk.com A lot of people don’t seem to know the story behind Lush. Well, Lush and Cosmetics-To-Go used to be one company (called Cosmetics-To-Go) back in the 80s. It was mail order only, and the catalogues were utterly brilliant to read! During the recession the company disappeared for a while. I got my orders and letters returned unopened, and their phoneline was disconnected. I assumed like everyone else that they went bust (very sad as I was addicted to their perfumes) but one day I received a Lush catalogue in the post. I just assumed the company had changed name and relaunched, but a few months later I got a Cosmetics-To-Go one too, which explained the troubles they’d had and what had happened. Lush went on to bigger and better things (opening shops, expanding worldwide etc) but CTG is still a small mail order company in Dorset. I think a lot of people would enjoy it, even though the website looks a bit naff LOL!”
I knew Lush had been a different company before they were Lush but I didn’t know this story – thank you! the stuff they have is very cute, can’t wait to try it.
