    • Brilliant, nostalgic read all about the company that came before Lush. The book itself isn't just a long statement of facts, but it works much like a really good novel. You engage with it, you learn about the characters, the scene and the products, you FEEL for these things and really get involved. You laugh along with the humour and fall for the brightly coloured illustrations.Then you start to feel the suspense building when you know something isn't quite right and you begin to read faster to [...]


    • I suppose you could say I was something of a fangirl of Cosmetics To Go before fangirls and before the internet for a company surely meant for the internet, as one contributor points out. I say was such was my acquisitive passion that I am still using CTG perfumes on a regular basis (Swelegant today, since you ask) and will be able to do so for quite some time to come, despite the fact that the company folded more than 20 years ago. I know that there are certain individuals whose abiding (and di [...]


    • I loved reading about the history behind LUSH, and was impressed to realized just how many old CTG products have made their way into the newer LUSH ranges. I also really loved to notice how family-like CTG was in Poole in the early days, and how that same feeling is replicated in how our offices and kitchens are run today in Vancouver. Really lovely book.


    • I read this book when it came out, I just never switched it to having read. I really liked this book. I work for LUSH and I think it was a very nice compendium detailing our history of LUSH before LUSH. Very interesting! I'm always down to learn more about botany and cosmetics, so woohoo!




    • I reallllly enjoyed this book. Having just started working for the company, my manager was telling us all the stories of products and the people in the company and mentioned the book, so I bought a copy. I am really glad I did because whilst the book is about the time before LUSH, it really gave me a further insight into the company and the people. I also felt gutted when I got to the end-I so wanted the book to continue so for me that's a great thing!


    • I love everything LUSH so naturally when I saw this book in my local shop I had to pick it up. It was very interesting to learn of the company before LUSH. Cosmetics To Go was innovative and animal friendly even back then. LUSH carries some of their products now which was cool to learn. I hope they bring back the Khufu line since I love all things Egyptian as well. I just hope if they do they include products in that line for women.


    • I read this book last year. Today I went to 29 1/2 High Street, Poole for the first time in over 20 years. I love love LOVED Cosmetics To Go, and was bitterly sad about its collapse. Violet nights, smaragadine, happy hippy, supercaliformulisticexportalmondocious Reading this brought back so many memories and was bittersweet. Lush isn't as exciting as ctg used to be. It just isn't.


    • I buy Lush products all of the time, the book was entertaining and informative. The information about the history and chemistry were good, but really I just didn't love it like I thought I would. Anyway, other Lush lovers will probably want to try this book, it might be more up your alley.



    • I loved reading about the company that came before Lush and the design of the book is very pleasing. I just wish it had included how Lush began instead of ending with Cosmetics to Go's downfall.
