Happy Halloween! Yes I am a little late on jotting down my thought about Lush's Halloween collection, seeing as Halloween is now today but as most items will still be in store up until at least tomorrow and as the scents are fairly Autumnal (yes I despise the term as much as I loathe Pumpkin Spice), I thought better late than never?
Lush Halloween 2015 may be fairly small in size but it sure is mighty in impact; from Lush Sparkly Pumpkins to the return of firm fan favourite Lush Lord of Misrule (in two forms no less) and a wibbly, wobbly bat shaped shower jelly, there is something for everyone. Forget scaring the local kids (just me?) and draw yourself a deep relaxing bath and munch away, on the Halloween candy that you were meant to share with the trick or treaters (again, just me?). I feel now would be the perfect time to manically laugh?
Technically Autumn isn't over until December the 21st (yes I Googled it), so you can enjoy all things pumpkin related for another few weeks (I reached peak pumpkin a few days ago after stumbling upon pumpkin flavoured gum, yes really).With that in mind you may want to stock up and savour a few Lush Sparkly Pumpkins (£3.65 each) - a pumpkin shaped, glittery, citrus scented bubble bar that creates a frothy, uplifting and skin soothing bath. As you may have noticed, this particular bath treat draws inspiration from Cinderella rather than Halloween, and we both know a few people will loose a shoe tonight due to one too many (we've all been there).
Other relaunches include Lush Lord of Misrule Bath Bomb (£3.95 each) which is a spicy, herbal yet punchy scented explosion of colour. Simply add to your bath water and marvel in the wine coloured water and dodge the popping candy getting lodged in certain places. If that sounds a little hazardous or perhaps you would prefer a more multi-use product, the good news is that Lush Lord of Misrule is available for a limited time only in shower gel form. If you can't get enough of the patchouli based scent now you can bathe, scrub and even treat your tresses to the rich aroma of Lord of Misrule Shower Gel (£4.95).
Lastly we have Lush Nightwing Shower Jelly (£3.95), which may not appear all that impressive in photos (ask yourself, when does jelly ever look all that great - other than in a bowl with ice cream and sprinkles?) but trust me when I say this little guy smells incredible. A zesty, sharp lime scented semi-solid shower gel that gently lathers up to thoroughly cleanse the skin. Great for kids and grown up's alike.
Now if you'll excuse me I have a date with a bowl of mini Snickers and Hocus Pocus. Have a good night whatever you decide to do.
