LUSH Cosmetics Halloween 2012

Last year, I shared some thoughts on LUSH Cosmetics' 2011 Halloween Collection, and thanks again to LUSH, I'm happily able to review some of this year's fun limited edition items as well! I've actually never been one to go all out on Halloween (minus the candy... I just can't say "no" to copious amounts of fun-size treats), but these products have really helped get me into a more seasonal spirit. Although I must say that I've never experienced the Halloween season during a blizzard, but I guess that's just Calgary for you!


ENCHANTER BATH BOMB ($6.95) 
Enchanter is a fun bath bomb made with lime and neroli, which is a great citrus/candy scent. It also brings different bursts of colour (orange, then pink, then yellow) while it dissolves. But if you have a light tub, you may find that the pink leaves a residue that you'll have to scrub off after your bath.

PUMPKIN SOAP ($6.95)
This limited edition soap was one of my favourite products last year and I'm so glad it's back again this year. With its lovely pumpkin shape and colour, the soap is packed with the rejuvenating scents of cinnamon, clove, cardamom, spearmint, and fresh pumpkin. It does melt away quickly if you leave it in the shower so I'd recommend storing it in one of those soap containers when it's not in use.

GREEN CALACAS SHOWER JELLY ($4.95)
"Calacas" means skeleton in Spanish, so it's fitting that this colourful green jelly is shaped like a sugar skull. The energizing scent of lime and neroli smells just like candy to me, while the aloe vera gel gently softens skin. I've never tried a shower jelly before this one but it basically feels like Jell-O... so much so that it sometimes slips out of my hands! I find it easier to break off smaller pieces to use like a soap or shampoo. LUSH also recommends using Calacas frozen for a sharp shock in the morning.

Check out the rest of the LUSH Halloween 2012 collection online or in stores to get your hands on these limited edition products before it's too late!

  4. That pumpkin soap sounds amazing!!! I love this time of year for things made out of pumpkin -- pies, coffees, and now soaps!
    I can't believe it's snowing in Calgary already. At least it's beautiful and it will be nice to avoid the rain of Vancouver :)
