Grandparents who bought their granddaughter a present from Lush were not happy when they read the saucy instructions
Yikes. A couple from Essex who bought their 8-year-old granddaughter a shower gel pressie from LUSH were left red-faced because the instructions on usage weren’t “age appropriate”.
The product’s instructions read,
“If you really don’t know how, then we suggest you find someone you really like and invite them into the shower with you to demonstrate”.
Speaking to The Sun, Richard explained…
“My wife spends quite a bit of money in Lush and bought two sets for my two grandchildren. It didn’t say anything about age restrictions or anything. They opened their bits and pieces on Christmas night, and Macy undid her one. It was called ‘Little Snow Fairy’ which to me indicates it’s ideal for kids.
“I happened to pick up the bottle and was reading aloud how to use it.”
Well, all was not happy in the Essex household. Richard phoned Lush. Speaking to the manager he said,
“I told him, ‘Innuendo amongst adults is fine, but when you’ve got to explain to an eight-year-old what it means, I think that’s wrong.'”He said I wasn’t the first person to complain about this – they’ve had four or five complaints over the past couple of years about it, but nothing’s been done about it. And he actually said this batch is aimed at children.””He did apologise and offered me two free bath bombs, but I said it wasn’t about that – I wanted their labelling to be changed.”
