Lush – Halloween Haul and Christmas Crackers

After my recent adventure in London, I convinced my sister in law to pop along to Lush as I had seen their Halloween offerings and I had already made up a shopping list!

Whilst I didn’t manage to get all of the Halloween products (they had sold out of some) I did manage to get a few of the Christmas range, and maybe a couple of other goodies that just happened to fall into my basket.

I had planned on spending around £20 on the products I wanted but when the total was rang in, it was actually £51! Oooops!

Anyway I now have enough bath bombs to last until Christmas and have a list for the next visit.

So on to their Halloween range first –

My Fairy Gothmother

The first product I put into my basket was “Goth Fairy” shimmer bar – a pale lilac colour bar in the shape of a strange little fairy. The bar is made with illipe and cupuaçu butters and leaves your skin feeling soft and amazing. The scent is made up of almond, grapefruit and bergamot and I have to say reminds me of a drumstick lolly – it is fabulous.

Once rubbed over the skin it leaves a real shimmer and coats the skin in glitter which simply does not budge. I tested it out on the Sunday evening and it was still on my skin the next day!

Shiny Skin

The Goth Fairy costs £5.50 and a little goes a long way. It isn’t a product I would use every day due to the glitter so it will last a considerable time.

Boo!

Second on my list was the “Boo” bath melt. He was just so cute that I couldn’t resist. A Little Meringue influenced melt scented with mimosa, ginger, geranium, sandalwood and Mandarin. It has such a fresh vibrant smell.

The assistant told me to hold Boo under running water for 30 seconds before throwing it into the bath as this would product a lot of bubbles, whereas if put straight into the bath, it would give a lovely moisturising bath, but no bubbles.

Boo is at the fabulous price of just £3.50. I can’t wait to give this one a try!

Jack ‘O’ Lantern

Next was  “Pumpkin” a bath bomb that was right up my street; Cinnamon and Vanilla combined to evoke the smell of pumpkin pie. The bomb is a pale orange with a cute pumpkin face carved into it. Priced at £3.95, it had to go in the basket.

Looking online the bomb melts into a shiny glossy orange colour, and I really can’t wait to test it out this weekend.

Even Cinderella would be impressed!

My last Halloween product was the “Sparkly Pumpkin” bubble bar which had the most amount of gold glitter I have ever seen on a Lush product.

Literally just picking it up covered my hands in the stuff. However the scent was just divine. Grapefruit, Juniper, Lime and topped off with a little cinnamon stick.

Whilst the bubble bars can be a little more expensive than the bath bomb, this one is the same at £3.95. However if you have never used a bubble bar before, they are better value as you break them into pieces (usually 2-4 pieces) this then gives you multiple bath times, whereas a bomb is a one time only deal.

All that Glitters….

I love the fact that this is so shiny. I don’t know yet how much of that gold is going to transfer onto my skin, but I am excited to see the end result.

I wanted to get a “Monsters Ball” bath bomb but they had sold out on the day I was shopping. There is also “Lord of Misrule” bath bomb however the overwhelming scent is of Patchouli which I really don’t like at all. I went so far as to sniff the bomb when I was there, but I just wasn’t a fan so I didn’t pick one up.

Moving onto the little Christmas crackers. I really wasn’t expecting these to be in and got very excited when I saw they were.

Happy No-feet!

The first thing that went into my basket was “The Christmas Penguin” Bubble Bar at £3.95. Now as I said I love a good bubble bar as they are so economical, however I am not sure how you can break this one into pieces due to it’s unusual yet very cute shape!

The little blue and white penguin has Sicilian Lemon, Orange and Bergamot oil in. These are three of my very favourite scents so I am really excited about it all. Well, apart from crumbling up this adorable creature!

Golden Wonder-ful

Next I picked up a “Golden Wonder” bath bomb. Now I have to say, this is THE biggest bath bomb I have ever seen. It is square and heavy and very chunky. Perfect for a long soak in the bath, and only £4.25.

The bomb is made with Lime, Orange and Cognac Oil! Right up my street then. It is shiny and gold, and I found a hidden surprise when I was taking the photographs.

What is inside?

No, I am not going to ruin it for you all. Just that there maybe a surprise hidden inside!

One of my favourites of the Christmas range was my next purchase. The lovely “Magic Wand” which was so pink and girly.

Magic Wand

This item is a bubble bar, however it comes on a stick so there is no need to crumble it up. Waft the stick through the water for 20 seconds and then allow it to dry out on the side. You will get multiple uses out of it, making each of your baths smell like candy floss. This makes the price of £5.95 really cost effective.;

Glitter, Pink, bells, candy floss all topped off with a silver bow. What more could you ask for?

My last item was the most expensive. However it was a little special.

Little Sprout

“Little Sprout” is a bath bomb all wrapped up in a little scarf. A scarf with a little face.

Inside the scarf is the beautiful “So White” bath bomb which can also be bought alone for £3.75. So white is shaped like an apple and has the scent of Rose, Neroli, Orange and Bergamot.

So White – So Good

Given that all of those scents are quite strong in their own right, you might think that this bomb would be very overpowering. However it is the exact opposite.

Look at that grin!

It smells clean and fresh, almost like new clean sheets on a bed. I was really surprised by this subtle scent, and I absolutely love it.

The scarf is designed to look like a little green sprout, complete with cheeky grin and leaves. This makes it a little extra special, and very cute and only £7.95.

In the “wrapped range” they also do a penguin “Pip”, A reindeer “Rudy”,  A Christmas Pudding  and a Satsuma. These range in price from £7.95 to £11.95.

There is also the fabulous “Santa’s Little Helper” which is £19.95, however comes with a bath bomb, shower jelly, a fun bar and a bubble bar. Fantastic value for money and the wrap is so cute.

Santas Little Helper

In fact, I have put it on my Christmas list if any kind soul out there wants to treat me!

I left Lush with my purse a little lighter but my smile a little wider.

PS. Something else did fall into my basket, but it was a totally unrelated product. However, who of us here can resist a Flamingo??
