Lush, a cosmetics company based in Dorset, England, opened its doors at The Westchester Mall in late August. If you’re unfamiliar with this fun and vibrant company, think cruelty-free “naked” bath, body and hair products with cheeky names and actually effective ingredients. Plus, it’s British, so cool by default.
Lush prides itself on their products, which are all handmade using fresh fruits and vegetables, ethically sourced essential oils and are never tested on animals. The 824-square-foot space is a cosmetic market where products are showcased in the same fashion as your favorite wholesome grocery store. Soaps are piled high like exotic cheeses, bath bombs stacked like ripe apples and face masks served from ice-chilled fridges.
To please Lush devotees from NYC, Mark Wolverton, President and CEO of Lush North America, says of the new Westchester location,”Our new store is sure to give shoppers the unique, fun and personalized experience that sets Lush apart.” The shop includes a cozy kitchen table, where customers can sit and discuss their skin and hair care needs with one of their expert consultants. No intimidating counters with long lines and snooty sales people.
