Overall I am really impressed with the quality of the Lush Halloween Products. I was especially pleased they had brought back Lord of Misrule from last year. I think it is probably my favourite out of the bath products I tried. I will most definitely be purchasing another Wizard and a couple Lord of Misrules and Northern Lights before they leave the shops.
Next I will be reviewing the bath products from the Lush Christmas range with a couple of shower gels and other limited edition products thrown in too!
What have you tried from the Lush Halloween or Christmas range? Let me know in the comments below.
Sparkler* is the bath bomb I chose during the Lush Christmas Launch in Portsmouth and is the final Halloween product I will be reviewing. As soon as I saw it in action and smelt it I knew I had to try it out for myself. This bath bomb the same scent as Rose Jam shower gel and Rose Jam bubbleroon, which are two of my favourite products from Lush – I love rose scented products. Again, like Northern Lights, I presume this bath bomb is more themed towards Fireworks/Bonfire Night but I am including it with the Halloween products.
Sparkler includes a blend of Rose Oil, Sicilian Lemon Oil and Egyptian Geranium Oil. This bath bomb looks quite plain on the outside considering it is called Sparkler, however it is what’s inside that counts.
Inside, Sparkler is a gorgeous red colour that kind of reminds me of cinnamon – just me? – and it also has lots of gold glitter. The pattern the red and yellow makes is beautiful, I almost didn’t want to get in the bath and ruin it. This bomb took a long time to dissolve and when I got in the bath and the colours mixed together it turned a lovely pale orangey yellow. The scent was not as strong once the bomb had dissolved, I wish I had been able to smell it a bit more whilst I was relaxing in the bath, but that is not going to stop me from purchasing a few more of these. The only downside to using a sparkly bath bomb is this…
… all of the glitter that is left in the bath afterwards. Don’t worry though it all rinsed out of the bath pretty easily, it is just a pain to have to do that after having a bath – oh well!
Sparkler is priced at £3.50 and available here.
I will start of by saying, this bubble bar is covered in gold glitter! I ended up covered in it when I was taking the photo below and putting it in the bath. This doesn’t bother me too much though because it adds a bit of fun and sparkle to the bath – and who doesn’t love glitter!
When I smell the Sparkly Pumpkin the first thing I notice is a citrus scent which is not what I was expecting at all. I think I was expecting it to smell like pumpkin and spices, so this was a pleasant surprise. Sparkly Pumpkin has a blend of lime, grapefruit and juniper berry oil which is energising and uplifting. When I broke it in half to crumble into the bath I was shocked to see how bright the orange inside was, I was expecting it to be a bit more of a pastel orange.
Half of the bar in the bath produced tons of bubbles that lasted for the entire bath – and then some! The bubble bar turned the bath a light orange – some may say it looks like pee, but I don’t mind that – and the scent was a lot more subtle once it has dissolved into the water.
I was half expecting the bath to be covered in water once it had all drained away, but fear not, all of the glitter went down the drain with the water – no late night bath cleaning needed. I am not sure I will be purchasing another of these bubble bars, only because there are other bubble bars I prefer better. Though if you like more citrusy scents, this may be the one for you.
Sparkly Pumpkin is priced at £3.50 and available here.
I think the Wizard I received is looking a little sorry for himself but I think he is kind of cute too! When I first saw this bubble bar at the Lush Christmas Launch I though it was the Christmas Penguine bubble bar just in a different colour. It wasn’t until a looked closer – and read the sign next to it – I realised it was a new product.
As I took Wizard out of the packaging immediately I recognised the scent of Ylang Ylang, however this bubble bar also contains Fennel Oil, Juniper Berry Oil and Tangerine Oil. As you can see from the picture above it is coated in a sheen of glitter, though the glitter is not as chunky as it is on Sparkly Pumpkin.
Wizard turned the bath water a beautiful lilac and the scent of Ylang Ylang lingered for the entire time I was in the bath. I only used about the third of the bar – he is now missing his hat! – and that was plenty to create a really bubbly bath. I did not find that the shimmer transferred into the bath, so I am wondering if this is just an overspray. I enjoyed using this bubble bar and even my other half said he liked the scent. I might pick up another Wizard soon, especially as I think I can get about 3 baths out of one bubble bar, it’s great value for money.
Wizard is priced at £3.25 and is available here. This product will not be available after Halloween so grab one quick if you want to try it.
If you visited a Lush store last Halloween you will recognise the Lord of Misrule bath bomb. I remember I bought a couple of these last year and enjoyed using them, so I am looking forward to using it again.
Lord of Misrule does not look very exciting from the outside but once you pop it in the bath you will be amazed at the colour the water turns, a rich deep wine. This bath bomb contains Black Pepper Oil, Patchouli Oil and Fair Trade Vanilla Absolute. I am not sure I can smell the vanilla but there is definitely a sweetness in there.
The scent of Lord of Misrule was not as strong as Northern Lights once it had fully dissolved, so those of you who prefer more subtle scents may like this bath bomb better. Like Northern Lights it fizzed away for a long time before it was fully dissolved and I loved the patterns it made in the bath. The colour it turned the bath water made it feel very luxurious, like I was bathing in wine – which would be awfully messy in reality I am sure! I will definitely be purchasing another Lord of Misrule before they are discontinued, I enjoyed the scent and it just feels like a very autumnal bath bomb.
Lord of Misrule is priced at £3.50 and available here.
