LUSH Fresh Handmade Cosmetics

Mindful consumers spend plenty of time carefully considering the foods that they eat, making sure to fill their bodies with natural and sustainable products. But what about taking your favorite organic produce and instead of popping it in your mouth as an afternoon snack, spreading it on your face and hair?

LUSH Fresh Handmade Cosmetics encourages this practice by producing beauty products out of fresh, organic fruits and vegetables, essential oils and ingredients that are ethically and sustainably procured from around the world. Lucky for locals who would like to pamper their outer shells in the same environmentally friendly way they feed their insides, a Lush shop recently opened up in Norfolk’s MacArthur Center.

The back-to-basics beauty shop offers handmade skin care, hair care, bath and body luxuries—all loaded with natural ingredients and 100 percent vegetarian. Stop by to pick up some Lemony Flutter cuticle butter, Ocean Salt face and body scrub, or Jumping Juniper shampoo and nourish yourself the organic way—inside and out.
