It’s my favourite time of year! Halloween is fast approaching and I’m always excited for the new Lush collections. This year they have really outdone themselves with a range of spooky treats from previous years and new ones to brighten up your bath! I bought a few of this years items and decided to do a review on my initial reactions and if I enjoyed using them.
Lord Of Misrule
A returning favourite The Lord of Misrule bomb has a spicy and herbal scent with infused black pepper oil, patchouli and vanilla. Black pepper oil is highly recommend for headaches and recovering aching muscles which is a great benefit to this bomb. Lord of Misrule has been created to uplift your mood with its small amount of popping candy. The bright green colour dissolves to reveal a deep red centre similar to that of red wine or blood, definitely Halloween appropriate! The warming fragrance is perfect for an autumn evening, I really enjoyed using it and I can see why it is a fan favourite.
Sparkly Pumpkin Bubble Bar
Another limited and returning favourite, this glittery bubble bar produces a vivid orange colour upon swirling and running under the tap. It can be broken in half and used for two separate baths which is often something I do with the bubble bars. The citrus fragrance of grapefruit, juniper-berry and lime is really pleasant and was surprised me because I was expecting something orange or cinnamon scented. The glitter isn’t overpowering and does tend to sink to the bottom of the bath however the oils leave your skin feeling soft and give you a gentle shimmer. the pumpkin is more delicate than I anticipated and reminds me of the sunnyside bubble bar. The pumpkin is so aesthetically pleasing but isn’t my top rated bubble bar, however I would like to see if return next year!
Inspired by the silly and spooky monster movies and stories everyone loves, this cute monster ball bomb reminds me of Monsters Inc. Scented with lime and neroli oil this fruity and sweet citrus scent boosts your mood and is a great indulging bath treat. Once in the bath is creates purple and blue swirls of colour and fizzes away the monsters little eye which is made of organic cocoa butter. Similar to the bath melts I love that Lush has introduced this little added extra as it left my skin feeling so soft and hydrated. The bomb also has Himalayan rock-salt in, which is a natural antiseptic. I won’t be surprised if this a is much-loved bath bomb for this year’s collection, it was great fun to use and I highly recommend grabbing this one before it sells out.
Pumpkin Bath Bomb (not pictured)
Fit for the Pumpkin King himself, this Jack-o-bath-lantern has endearing features and really put a smile on my face when I saw it in the shop. As mentioned above this bath bomb is not pictured as I was too eager and couldn’t resist using it as soon as I bought it. The cinnamon and vanilla fragrance screams Autumn, it smells delicious and the Pimento Berry oil works as an antioxidant on the skin. I was slightly disappointed with how fast it dissolved, the yellow centre doesn’t add any design or bright colour to the water, however the orange is extremely vivid. The charming and mischievous face of this bath bomb makes me want to purchase another even though I was left feeling a little let down.
It’s not a secret that I am a huge fan of Lush, I loved doing this review and I’m looking forward to purchasing more of the Halloween Lush collection and seeing what returns next year!
