When it comes to special occasions Lush always bring it out the bag with an array of exciting products to fit the season and always manage to be innovative in their designs and ideas. I was lucky to get a preview of the Halloween and Christmas ranges and am pleased to be able to share with you some of their fun themed products.
One I’d definitely buy for my children this Halloween is the Ectoplasm bath bomb, with citrus fragrances it bubbles up and leaves a slimy layer on top of the bath water, which is great for softening the skin but even more fun to play with.
A new addition to the range of lip scrubs and stains is Black Rose which looks so pretty. If you are a fan of the other lip products then this won’t disappoint and gives a lovely deep pink colour on application of the stain.
Bewitched has to be one of the cutest Halloween bubble bars with it’s black cat head and yellow eyes. Packed with bergamot it smells rich, spicy and fills the bathtub with bubbles and you can use it several times over which is a bonus.
Moving on to Christmas, there were some exciting new arrivals, how about these Golden Pear soaps. With a rich luxurious lather, these are a pleasure to wash with packed with lots of golden ingredients – pear puree, cardamom oil, agave syrup, orange oil, cocoa butter, almond oil among other things.
One thing I must mention are the new Lush Naked products, that is products without packaging – quite literally with no plastic bottle or tub. So how does that work then, well a shower gel or body conditioner is thickened up until it is in a solid state but still lathers and feels like the product it should be. In the picture below you can see the Snow Fairy Naked body conditioners. This is a new idea but one that we should all be embracing as think of how many fewer plastic bottles would end up in landfill!
Man in the Moon just has to be the bubble bar for my son, the colours and style are right up his street although the added cocoa butter is great to keep his skin soft and moisturised. Lime and neroli oils keep this one smelling fresh and clean.
Snow Fairy cold pressed soap looks pretty and would make the perfect stocking filler for any Snow Fairy fan. With it’s familiar scent it’s a great way to lather up in the bath or just use for washing your hands.
Twilight Sparkle Jar has to be the cutest things I’ve seen for a while. This massage bar melts into the skin with it’s moisturising cocoa butter along with lavender and tonka. When you are done, simply tip it up and shake a golden lustre powder over your skin to leave your you shimmery and soft.
Some great ideas from Lush this year – what will be on your Christmas list?
