Best Edible Cosmetics - 2004
Lush Fresh Cosmetics
Sniffing the gobs of real cocoa powder that spill out of their toffee- and honey-scented massage bars or the kiwi, pineapple, and papaya in their hair treatments, it's easy to mistake either of the two Lush Fresh Cosmetics locations as actual confectioneries. All of the stores' products are vegetarian, most are vegan -- many are so close to actual food dishes it's scary. Their new Bio Fresh line of face masks, body scrubs, and foot treatments is so aptly named that it needs to be refrigerated and lasts only about three weeks. With products made from ingredients like mushrooms, grapes, oatmeal, mint, and avocado, Lush makes it easy to forget that you're not grocery shopping.
