LUSH washes up at The Maine Mall

LUSH washes up at The Maine Mall

LUSH Fresh Handmade Cosmetics, the upbeat British brand of ethical and innovative bath, body, skin and hair care is soon to be making its debut at The Maine Mall. Known for cruelty-free “naked” products with cheeky names, effective ingredients, and environmental conscience, the self-appointed cosmetic grocer is opening its very first shop in the Portland area in early August.

Shoppers will enjoy a cosmetic deli showcasing LUSH’s products, which are handmade using fresh fruits and vegetables, ethically-sourced essential oils, and are never tested on animals. The new shop features soaps piled high like exotic cheeses, bath bombs presented like perfectly round apples and fresh facemasks served up from ice-filled fridges. The shop includes a cozy kitchen table, where customers can sit and discuss their skin and hair care needs with one of LUSH’s expert consultants. This genuine “back to basics” approach encourages a laid-back shopping experience with friendly advice.

IF THE HIGH HEELS FIT ...

I had a really nice time last night. I went to a party at McCabe, Duval + Associates — they’re on the top floor of a building in the Old Port with amazing views of the waterfront. The theme was a summer picnic, French bistro style. I decided to dress in my version of casual French. I put on black capri pants and a long sleeved fitted dark purple t-shirt and slipped into a pair of black flats. My twenty something daughter is living with us for the time being and I’ve gotten into the habit of running outfits by her before leaving the house. Each time I realize that I am risking humiliation, but she has given me invaluable advice and claims to have saved me many times from public humiliation on a much grander scale.
