LUSH comes to Morioka!

[The LUSH shop in Morioka Station]

Yes Iwate has turned green, lush and vibrant with the onset of Spring but this lush is not that, it's a store! And no, they don't sell cheap wine to all you alchoholics out there. What they do sell is soap. Apparently lots of it and of a very good quality too!

Accourding to their own website they started in England back in 1978 and grew from there. Here's what they say about themselves on their American site,

"Today we have 370+ shops around the world, We also operate mail order businesses from the UK, Canada, Australia, Italy, Japan, Sweden, Hong Kong, Switzerland, Hungary, Germany, Taiwan and the United States. We hand-make our cosmetics in UK, Italy, Canada, South America and Japan, in our own production facilities, so that every product available in our shops or sent to you by mail is as fresh as it can possibly be because fresh products work better and use fewer preservatives. Our aim is to have the youngest, freshest products in the history of cosmetics."

It would seem they do everything right; no animal testing, no animal ingredients, lots of fruits, veggies and herbs inside and so on. Then they make their products in a variety of shapes such as cakes and pies, candies and fruits, and ice cream! Several people have told me how their products look so delicious they want to eat them!

The LUSH shop is on the second floor of Fes"an inside Morioka Station; you can't miss it.

Looks like they have one in the Florida Mall in Orlando. Next time I'm there, I'll have to check them out.
