  • LUSH Harajuku Revamps With New ‘Slow Bath’ Concept

    13.September.2020 | FASHION

    The Harajuku branch of UK cosmetics retailer reopened after a revamp on Friday with its all-new ‘Slow Bath’ concept. The branch first opened to the people of Tokyo in November 2018.


    Since opening, LUSH Harajuku has delivered a LUSH-esque bath product lineup experience, since Japan is known for being a nation of bath lovers. That is now being taken to the next level with the Slow Bath revamp which will stock a wide variety of items for self care and indulgence.

     

    Throw away the needless and make way for mind and body reconnection

    LUSH Harajuku is a place that helps you discover new ways to design your daily routine, with face masks to refresh your skin, products to care for your hair, scents for your well-deserved bath time, and more.

     

    Well-being is also a big part of the brand, teaching you to be kind to yourself while you’re working everyday, and to look after your mind and body. LUSH Harajuku stocks not only bath bombs and bubble bars, but a selection of items to use while you’re in the bath too for some much-needed self care.

     

    Naked items are environmentally friendly

    About 60% of LUSH’s products are sold ‘naked’ without packaging in order to reduce on waste in the environment. This also lets the essential oils and natural smells of the products seep throughout and outside the doors of their stores, beckoning people with the pleasant fragrances.

     

    LUSH’s “Lush Labs” app also has a function called “Lush Lens.” This lets customers scan any naked item which brings up information about that particular item such as what ingredients are used, as well as videos on how to use products and bath bombs fizzing.

     

    If you’re ever in Harajuku, be sure to stop by LUSH.
