So I went to Lush the other day to get Halloween items. When I had gone a few weeks ago, they were not in yet. To my surprise, not only were the halloween items in, but so were the Christmas items (which will be posted probably later).
The first item I bought was the Cobweb Bath Bomb. This is one of my favorite bath bombs. It has the same scent of the Black Pearl Bath Bomb that was released last year for limited edition. I bought three of these. They are scented with lavender, chamomile , and blackcurrent for a relaxing yet fruity sweet scent. Just the perfect thing to relax you after a "Night of Frights".
The second item I bought was the "Ghost" Shower Gel. This shower gel is scented with gardenia, dove orchid oil, rose absolute, and ylang ylang to leave you smelling of lillies. It smells exactly like Lush's Lily Savon soap which I believe is either a retro item or now discontinued. I love this shower gel! It makes me feel like I have just run through a patch of flowers and has an extremely lily floral scent, so if you are not a floral person, this will not be the shower gel for you. I've had many people ask me what this smells like. It smells of staright lillies!
I also picked up two of the Jacko bath bombs which are out of this world. I love the scent of these. I heard someone describe them as smelling like your bag of halloween candy after you dumped it out when you were a child so your mom could check it. Boy are they right. It is a spicy, cinnamon scent. It contains cloves and spearamint, which in my opinion is a great combination. This bath bomb is a great treat for all during the fall. If they restock them at my local lush, I will definately buy a few more.
The last thing that was left on the Halloween table was the "(The Great) Pumkin Soap". This soap smells exactly like their Spice Curls Soap. It is wonderful. I was never a fan of Spice Curls as I did not like the consistency of it. Spice Curls was very abrasive, almost exfoliating, and I didn't like the feel of it much. Pumpkin soap on the other hand is the total opposite. This soap is extremely creamy in texture, so much that it almost melts in your hands when you are holding it. It is scented with cloves, cinnamon, and slight hints of mint and other spices. I love the scent, almost like Big Red gum.
Did you buy any lush Halloween goodies or plan to?
