LUSH – Halloween 2017 Releases
Hello everyone! I received a packet in the mail with information on the LUSH Halloween 2017 releases, so I wanted to share all of them with you — as well as which ones have caught my eye!
These are limited edition, so they will only be available for the season. So if you’re interested, stop by LUSH, or if there isn’t one near you, feel free to click the links below to check out any of these for an amazing autumn bath!
A huge guilty pleasure of mine are bath bombs. Especially if they’re infused with skin benefits, I’m a huge fan. Many times LUSH’s bath bombs are a bit strong in scent, so just something to keep in mind.
Pumpkin – Featured ingredient: Pimento berry oil
This “bath-o-lantern” is fall vibes. This bomb is a fizzer, and it’ll fizz out a “spicy-sweet pumpkin pie perfume full of exotic pimento, sweet vanilla and cozy, warming cinnamon.” Berry can be a bit more exhilarating than relaxing, but this sounds like soaking in fall, which I’m all about.
Lord of Misrule – Featured ingredient: Patchouli oil
This one starts out with a gorgeous green and then the center releases a reddish wine-colored center. It’s a spicy herbal blend, so it’s a more invigorating with a stronger scent. Patchouli is great for the skin, so this is going to be a more nourishing bath bomb.
Monsters’ Ball – Featured ingredient: Himalayan Rock Salt
I’m not going to lie, I’m the most excited for this one. First of all, duh, it reminds me of Monsters Inc. Secondly, the inside of the bomb is blue, so it creates a gorgeous swirl of pink, blue and purple around the bath. It also has a fruity lime and neroli perfume, which I imagine leaves a gorgeous lingering scent when you step out of the bath.
I typically get 3-4 uses out of the bubble bars at LUSH, so I will break off portions of the bar and crumble it under the tap for a beautiful bubbly bath. Sometimes I will even combine a small amount of a bar with a bath bomb to mix my own bath.
Bewitched – Featured ingredient: Frankincense oil
From the look of this one, it’ll turn your bath into an almost black bath, which is very appropriate for Halloween. According to the website, this bubble bar will “conjure up a shroud of berry-scented bubbles and dark, mysterious waters with mountains of fluffy, fragrant bubbles.” Frankincense essential oil has a lot of skin benefits, as well as for overall health. Some include: stress and anxiety relief, reducing pain and inflammation, boosting immunity and even helping to fight cancer.
Pink Pumpkin – Featured ingredient: Bergamot oil
* Warning – This bubble bar does have glitter *
Marketed for those who would rather dress up as a unicorn than a zombie, this bright pink bubble bar uses a blend of bergamot, geranium and jasmine to create a bath full of pink shimmer and bubbles.
Sparkly Pumpkin – Featured ingredient: Cinnamon stick
* Is it necessary to give a warning for glitter when it’s called “sparkly”? *
After reading the description, this is basically everything I love about fall in a bath. It has the warmth of cinnamon, the energizing refresh of lime and grapefruit oils, and the color of autumn. YAS.
Lord of Misrule – Shower Cream
Just like the bath bomb, this shower cream has an herbal blend of black pepper, patchouli and vanilla. The shower creams are notorious for being really nourishing, so that plus patchouli and vanilla — YUM. The only thing you would need to figure out is if this particular scent is for you.
Black Rose – Lip Tint
I’m not sure how I feel about this… it starts out black in the tube, but when applied to the lips, it gives a pinkish red tint to the lips. It has kalahari melon and jojoba oils, as well as a fruity spearmint-mandarin flavor. But hey, maybe that sounds amazing to you!
Goth Fairy – Body Shimmer
* Warning – This body bar does have glitter *
If you’re looking for a body highlight, this is your shimmer fairy. During the winter, they have Snow Fairy, but this “goth fairy” applies iridescent sparkles on your skin, while adding hydration with illipe and cupuaçu butters.
Hedgewitch – Soap
Staring at the rows of soap is probably one of my favorite things to do at LUSH. They’re just these huge tube-like structures spread out all over the counter. The featured ingredient in this soap is extra virgin coconut oil, which has amazing softening benefits for the skin. Hedgewitch has blackberries and a fruity fragrance if that’s your style.
Magic Wand – Soap
Harry Potter anyone? Another sweet/fruity smell, this soap is infused with pomegranate for brightening and charcoal for detox, leaving the skin squeaky clean!
The Ones I Definitely Will Be Trying :
- Sparkly Pumpkin bubble bar
- Monsters’ Ball bath bomb
- Lord of Misrule bath bomb
- Either the pink pumpkin bubble bar, or the pumpkin bath bomb (not both though, cause I ain’t loaded)
