LUSH Comes to Harbor East

Baltimore magazine

For all LUSH Fresh Handmade Cosmetics fans (Bath Bomb, anyone?) in the city, you'll be happy to learn that the vegetarian beauty line—skin, hair, body—which uses fresh and organic ingredients with no animal testing performed, will be joining the Harbor East area this summer. The new location will occupy about 1,300 square feet at 1001 Aliceanna Street, offering the hands-on "cosmetic deli" atmosphere that the store is known for, where customers are encouraged to personally pick their products (most found in the "naked" solid form, which decreases the use of wasteful packaging). You can read more about the LUSH philosophy here

Kick off February with (Even More) Sales!

Although we recently gave you a list of sales to keep you busy enough, here are a few more to look out for and start the month off right:

This Saturday only, enjoy the first-ever Cupcake Rack and Sample Sale—the store's largest sale to date! All sale items (from fall, winter, and even spring) have been marked down from anywhere between 50 and 75 percent off original prices. This means that all merchandise will sell for anywhere between as low as just $20 and $150—even pieces from some of your favorite, more expensive labels. (And lucky for us, this Saturday is just the debut of what will become the boutique's annual sale.)
