Ever since Lush released their Halloween and Christmas collection I've wanted to make an order, I've held off as I'm trying to save some money for Christmas. Who am I kidding, I can't save money at all. I think I did well holding off as long as I did, and I refrained from buying the whole store, so my bank balance is looking good still. Phew. Trust me to receive my order after Halloween, so I couldn't use a Halloween bath bomb, story of my life to be honest.
I bought two products from the Halloween collection; the Sparkly Pumpkin and Lord of Misrule. I haven't tried either of these products before as I've never really been that fussed by the Halloween items, but I knew this year I needed to. The Sparkly Pumpkin Bubble Bar is so glittery, it is literally getting glitter everywhere, I love the bright orange exterior of it. I can imagine myself getting out of the bath looking like a sparkling pumpkin after using this. It's hard to explain what it smells like, it's made using juniperberry, lime and grapefruit oils. It has quite a sultry smell, that I would 100% associate with Halloween. Lord of Misrule Bath Bomb is a gorgeous green colour, that turns the most beautiful deep pink and then to a wine red colour in the bath. True Halloween style. The smell is another one that I can't describe what is smells like, it's a mix of black pepper and vanilla, but neither of the scents overpowers the other. It's absolutely perfect, I really didn't think I would like this scent as I am definitely a sweet smell lover, but it's a really unique scent.
I am a lover of all things Christmas, especially when it comes to Lush. I swear all their products just get better and better around the Winter season. I went straight for the bath bombs first, Butterbear Bath Bomb was a favourite of mine from last year so I just had to repurchase it. Vanilla toned, full of cocoa butter and only £1.95, I'm going to be stocking up on these before they sell out! Next I picked up the Star Dust Bath Bomb, I just love the simplicity of it, and of course the vanilla scent. Do we see a pattern forming here? I just love vanilla. It has a glittery surface so I can't wait to see what it does in the bath. The last bath bomb I picked up is another favourite of mine from last year, the Golden Wonder Bath Bomb, is my all time favourite Christmas bath bomb. It is literally a present full of surprises. If you haven't tried this one yet I'd really recommend it to anyone. It has a really refreshing, zesty scent which I love to freshen up on cold winter evenings.
Then I headed over to pick up some bubble bars, first up was the Peeping Santa Bubble Bar, he is just so so cute! He is also full of shea and cocoa butter which are my favourite things in a bubble bar, it has a very fruity scent which I prefer over the more musky scents so this is perfect for me. Look at his little chocolate drop eyes. I cannot wait to try him out in the bath. I picked up the Candy Mountain Bubble Bar, simply because I do every year and its amazing. I'm really not a pink girl at all, but there is nothing I love more than a bright pink bubble bath. It also smells sugary sweet, exactly like candyfloss, so I am all over this one. My second favourite bubble bar after The Comforter so far. The last thing I picked up from the Christmas range was a bottle of Snow Fairy, I just couldn't resist. I plan to buy a big bottle in the Boxing Day sale so I got the smallest bottle to last me up until then, but it is literally the best shower gel ever. Enough said.
I also picked up two Lush Oxford Street Exclusives which I was pretty happy about, I picked up The Experimenter Bath Bomb which I've repurchased so many times. I just love the scent and the colour of the water when it's finished fizzing, so beautiful. I nearly squealed when I saw the Big Bang Bubble Bar on the website, I ordered it straight away as I've been dying to try it for ages! On arrival, I was a little disappointed on the size as I thought it would be a bit bigger, but other than that it is amazing. It smells exactly like refresher sweets, which were my favourite as a child. I cannot wait to see how good this is in the bath, I have been waiting months to get it.
Lush is my favourite shop ever at this time of year, so expect a few more hauls closer to Christmas when I pick up some more of the collection as I only made a small order this time. Have you picked up anything from the collection yet? What's your favourite?
