Lush Halloween Haul

Halloween and Christmas are my favourite collections that Lush bring out. As soon as I found out when my local store were officially selling the collections, I have been itching to stock up! My youngest sister is also obsessed with Lush so on Friday after she had finished with school, we went down to Lush to explore all the Halloween goodies! We were very good and did not get any of the Christmas things but don't worry, once Halloween is over - I will be all over that Christmas stuff! Some of the products we both chose and some only one of us chose but I decided to include everything that we bought!

Pumpkin Bath Bomb
Serve yourself up a slab of sweet pumpkin pie, dripping in spice and sauciness - it's even more satisfying in bath bomb form. Sweet, comforting vanilla absolute and spicy cinnamon evoke the rich, biscuity fragrance of home-baking and stacked desserts, ensuring that you feel toasty from top to toe. A soak with this pumpkin-shaped bomb is more satisfying than a belly full of pudding.
It's Halloween time so of course, I had to get the Pumpkin bath bomb. I also had this last year and it looks so great, you almost don't want to use it! Thankfully although it is quite pale in colour, it is still orange enough that you do not look like you have peed in the bath. I hope they continue to bring this out every year because it is so quintessentially Halloween - I mean, is it really Halloween if you don't have something pumpkin related in your home!

Lord Of Misrule Bath Bomb
Revel in your bath with this mischievous bomb that features a spicy herbal blend of patchouli and black pepper oil. Inspired by the ruler of the pagan Feast of Fools, Lord Of Misrule has a deep green exterior that slowly froths away to reveal a rich, wine-coloured centre. Just like at the Feast of Fools, when the wine starts to flow, the popping candy crackles and the festivities begin...
I believe this bath bomb has come out for a few years now as it was one of the new scents that they brought out for Halloween - it also comes as a shower cream. Even though it has been out for previous years, I don't think I have tried it before so I decided to buy it this year. I know that this is quite popular so I am quite excited to try it! On the website, the little video at the top shows pink and green so once it has all fizzed out, it might be an interesting colour, just like the Experimenter always does for me.

Monsters Ball Bath Bomb
Eye spy with this little eye something beginning with BOO! This monster mash-up of lime and neroli oils is a sure fire way to get the party started. Toss into a hot bath and watch it go. Olibanum oil relaxes and leaves you feelin’ Franken-fine all night long.
Even though it is Halloween, I think that this is one of the cutest bath bombs that Lush has ever made. My first thought when I saw this last year was that it looks exactly like a purple and blue Mike from Monsters Inc! This was chosen by my sister and I did think about getting another one but I did not want to have exactly the same ones again so I chose to get Lord Of Misrule instead. I might end up buying it again as it does make the bath go a beautiful blue-purple colour and purple is my favourite colour.

Ectoplasm Jelly Bomb
For soaks from the other side, launch this slimer into the water and let the gooey jelly ooze across the surface. Made from brown seaweed, it softens your skin as it goes. If you're feeling ghoulish, the uplifting tangerine, grapefruit and restorative litsea cubeba oils will have you in high spirits in no time. Take the gunge
This was one of the bath bombs that I knew I had to get as soon as I saw the Halloween collection on the Lush website. When we were in the store, it was this bath bomb that they had in one of their 'tester' bowls and it is so bizarre. Even though we knew that it was going to have some kind of jelly in it, that still did not prepare us for the texture on the top when we put our hands in! The lady told us that it is a seaweed gelatin and it is really good for your skin so it might feel a bit strange, but it will make your skin feel amazing. Both of us decided to get one and I think my sister is most excited to use this out of all the ones she chose! Also if you wanted to prank any of your friends or family this Halloween who love baths, this is a great one! It also has a little ghost on it. It's adorable.

Bewitched Bubble Bar
After a busy day whizzing around on a broomstick, ground yourself with olibanum and be spellbound by bergamot. Twitch your nose and breathe in this familiar blackberry scent. Whether in this life or one of the other eight, you'd be a fool to let this pass you by!
I don't think I have ever had one of the Halloween bubble bars before for some reason but when my sister and I saw that they had a cat bubble bar, we knew we were both having one! We are very much a 'cat' family and I miss our cat who died in 2010 so much, thankfully our neighbour's cats love being in our garden and always run to us for cuddles if they see us in the garden. I don't know if the bubble are going to come out black, I don't think they will but it would be pretty cool if they did! I find Lush bubbles are so soft compared to standard bubble bath bubbles and depending on your bath's water pressure, you can get so many bubbles out of very little product.

So that's what my sister and I have chosen from this year's Halloween collection at Lush, I can't wait to start using them all - will have to get through them quickly though as I am already excited to start buying my Christmas bath bombs, I promise I won't be buying any until Halloween is gone. We will have to see how far into November I get before it gets all about that Christmas Lush life!

  1. This is a really good in depth look at the Halloween range, I've put up a similar post but it doesn't have as much information as yours does, I really love Bewitched at the moment as the scent reminds me of blackberry bathbomb that they have discontinued.
