Lush Halloween Specials 2013

Even though I was delighted to catch a sneak glimpse at Lush's Christmas offerings a couple of weeks back, my inner voice is insisting on the natural order of things so before I show you Crimbo, I have to show you Halloween. There's 3 news additions for 2013, all for pocket money prices and all coming home with me on my next trip to the bath and body emporium. 

Pumkin Bubble Bar

First up, the Pumkin Bubble Bar, which I had previously misspelled. Turns out, it's a reiteration of the limited edition Mammy's Day 'Mumkin' Bubble Bar: 

"Crumble under a running tap to turn your bath water a vivid, rusty orange colour, creating mounds of sweet scented bubbles. With ylang ylang oil and orange flower absolute to leave you feeling uplifted and refreshed. His dairy free chocolate drop eyes and little liquorice hat complete the macabre look but he still can’t help looking cute!" (Vegan)

Lord of Misrule Bath Bomb
"This strange and magnificent bath treat, named after the ruler of the Pagan Feast of Fools, features a fragrance created by Gorilla Perfumer Simon Constantine. This bomb will slowly dissolve to reveal a wine coloured centre, with the added sweetness of the world’s first fair trade vanilla absolute. This is offset by the earthy scents of black pepper and patchouli oil. Arriving for Halloween 2013, the Lord of Misrule will be gracing us with his presence until Spring 2014." (Pssst You'll see Lord of Misrule feature in Christmas sets too!)

Soot Ball Bath Bomb
"Inspired by the ‘soot gremlins’ from Hayao Miyazaki’s film Spirited Away, this spooky little guy won’t turn your bath water black but instead fill it with a radiant golden lustre to make you feel as though you’re bathing in luxurious liquid gold. The olibanum (frankincense) is known for its calming and grounding effect on the mind, whilst the burnt caramel scent of tonka absolute and earthy sandalwood oil together create a sweet, spicy fragrance that wafts through the steam." (Vegan)

I'll definitely be picking up a couple of each for the little ladies in my life but, tell me, are you tempted by Lush Halloween 2013 specials? 

You'll find all of the above on the Lush.co.uk site here, which includes The Witches' Ball and Twilight Shower Gel but, truthfully, single packaged Lush bath bombs rarely make it across the Irish Sea intact due to their delicate make up, which is grand if you're buying for yourself and chucking it straight in the bath. For gifts though, I'd advise popping into your local shop.
