Type of Place: Bath & Body
You have not lived until you’ve taken a bath with one of Lush’s signature Butter Ball Bath Bombs. Their popular seller is handmade and crafted to melt in warm water, filling your bathtub with a glorious milky liquid that will leave your skin feeling luscious and baby soft. Aside from their Bath Bombs, the Midtown Lush wafts wonderful scents and inviting smells into Herald Square, forcing shoppers to come in and sample some of their homemade lotions and creams, and take a wiff of their perfumes.
The very small boutique is armed with smiling employees, knowledgeable in all things Lush. They pride themselves on providing you with samples and facts, so feel free to pop in on a hot summer day when you need to freshen your scent and trivia on beauty products.
For the shower, Lush sells creative concoctions including their Shower Smoothie for $20, which is a tub of creamy body wash with coconut oils, jasmine, and vanilla to slather on and rinse off for a quick cure for dry skin. Next to the wide variety of Bath Bombs you can find their similarly heavenly Bath Melts such as Dreamtime, a blend of jasmine and chamomile that when popped into your nighttime bath it emits soothing smells to help you ready to drift off into a dreamful wonderland.
Lush’s skincare line is also popular. They promotetheir use fresh products in their creation of lip balms, shaving creams, moisturizers, face masks, toners, and cleaners all landing within a $20-$35 range.
Also, be sure not to leave without checking out their shampoos and conditioners for the same silky smoothness effects.
Lush is the perfect stop for a quick and thoughtful gift (they offer gift baskets and cute wrapping) for anyone who loves be pampered while relaxing. In other words: Everyone.- Caitlin Colford
