I tend not to buy much Lush any more, ten years ago everything I had was by them, but I always get dragged back in at Halloween and Christmas. This year I’ve not gone over the top, for me anyway, but I do like to try new products that sound nice to me to know if I’m going to try and get them in the sale. I got three of the Halloween products and quiet a few of the new Christmas products so I thought I’d put them all in one post.
This is pretty much a first impressions post, though I have used a couple of them before if they aren’t new this year I can’t say that they’re definitely the same as in past years even if they smell like it.

As the weather’s getting cooler it’s getting to be bath time of year, at least for me, so last month I stocked up on some bits from the Lush Halloween collection. The Monsters’ Ball Bath Bomb (£4.50) is a new shape for an old favourite scent. I say old favourite, it’s fairly recent compared to some but it does come back every year in some shape since it’s first release. It has the Day of the Dead, or Calacas, scent and seems to have an eye that’s a more moisturising solid bath oil formula. I like the fact it has something different and when they mix product types into one product and they do look cute with their one giant eye.
This is a fair sized bath bomb, which could be broken in two, and actually has a fairly obvious seem which used to mean they were easy to break, but it seems to be hard and may be more of a smash up and use the dust job rather than get two clean halves. As it does have layers it may mean you lose the effect if the pink and the blue swirling around but as they blend to become a deep purple in the end I don’t think it’ll make that much difference.

This year Lush seem to have released quite a range for Halloween, especially considering that not that long ago there were years where it was pretty last minute and they even hinted at not releasing any Halloween themed products. I only got four, and one of these seems to be in the Christmas range for some reason but it definitely feels more Halloween to me.
I decided to go for four things, to be honest the rest didn’t really appeal to me but I do like the fact that they’ve done a black lip product to go into the makeup side of the holiday. I only wish I’d managed to get one of the Ghost shower gels when they were in the kitchen and crossing my fingers they release it again as that’s one of my favourite Lush scents and definitely something Halloween themed. If you have a favourite Halloween product from the past, Calacas scented things always seem popular, then it’s worth checking out the kitchen section in the lead up to Halloween.
