Boo! I'm Coming To Get You | Lush Halloween 2019 Range First Impressions


Welcome to a brand new blog post! I thought that today, I would talk to you all about the brand new festive Lush range that has just dropped within the UK. Of course, I am speaking about the Halloween range. Yes, it might be a bit too early but my black soul would definitely disagree.

Punkin Pumpkin

Punk will never be dead! Lush have decided to bring out a new bath bomb that looks like a carved out Jack O Lantern. My first thought was neon, and a tad creepy, so that automatically means I love it! I love anything that starts with Punk! I also think that this would be a great one for Kids! The bomb contains, Lime, Cinnamon and Red Mandarin. I mainly got the Cinnamon and Red Mandarin which gave me a sort of Autumnal Candle scent vibe.

Pumpkin Spice Lip Scrub

Scrub all the dirt away and reveal that basic witch that lives within! I love anything PSL so I knew that I was going to love this. I tried this one out in store. The scrub smells like PSL with a slight Cinnamon Bun scent that kicks in after the PSL. I love the Sugar and Salt combo but because there was already strong scents/flavours going on, It scrubbed well but my lips still felt a tad dry after scrubbing. Might have been a me problem, who knows? I instantly bought this though and have been telling all of my friends to try it out, so it's an instant gimme more to me!

Mercury Retrograde

Lets blast off and hope that we don't fall into that big black hole! Mercury Retrograde was inspired by the fact that Mercury Retrograde falls on Halloween. This contains Ginger Oil, Cinnamon Leaf Oil and Buchu. I love the colours that this bomb slowly goes. I'm a big fan of anything that goes red like blood! The smell reminds me of Gingerbread with a slight kick of Citrus. This scent could definitely be in a Autumn based candle!

Monsters Ball

Lets get freaky and go to the ball! I love it when this bomb comes out for Halloween! This one is a Halloween classic. If you love Calavera then you will love this one. I love anything Lime! I love the sort of horn based design this year! I could also definitely see this scent being in a candle!

C'est La Vie! Meow is back, and they look better than ever! I love the Blackberry scent at this time of year as it's deep nut fruity. This is a staple Bubble Bar for Halloween. It creates a lot of bubbles and instantly makes me think of Autumn and Halloween when I see it in stores.

Lord Of Misrule

Is it even Halloween at Lush if Lord Of Misrule makes an appearance. I love this Patchouli based bomb especially for those cold days. I also love the colours that come out of this product.

Boo Shower Slime

Boo, you witch! This is a brand new concept for Lush! It's not as thin as. Shower Gel, not as thick as a Shower Jelly, and, not as stretchy as the imagination of the people that create so many amazing products at the Lush factories. I love the fact that its black and that it matches my soul. I love the fact that it is glittery. The scent is a bit of a mixed bag for me. It resembles Snow Fairy/Bubblegum Lip Scrub. Don't get me wrong, I love SF, but I have to be in a particular mood for Snow Fairy and I don't really know if I want it all Halloween long as my mind attaches it to Christmas. I do love how much it stretches and I think that it's a fab concept and I think that I need to use it a couple of times to fully make my mind up on what I think about it.

Glow Worm FUN

Hitting up that club, and doing the Glow Worm, is always FUN! I love FUN. It can be used for so much! Soap. Bubble Bar. Shampoo. I love the scent of this as it shares it scent with the Avobath family. I love anything Lemongrass based. I'm not sure if it actually glows in the dark but if it does then I can't wait to see it.

Ghost In The Dark Soap

Theres always ghosts in the dark! I love this soap as it is shaped like a ghost. I also love the fact that it smells like Lemony Flutter. I love anything citrus based. I want to see if it actually glows in the dark. If it does, then, its the best soap ever!

Let's Bang The Gong Before I Go Coco Loco! | My Top Ten Shower Products From Lush

Hey everyone!

I thought that today, I would talk to you all about my top ten favourite Shower products from Lush. I know, I know... I talk about Lush a lot, but I wanted to do this post before the new Halloween and Christmas products come out just so my blog isn't going head first into the seasonal content.

Gong Shower Jelly

Sadly, this is a Lush Liverpool Spa exclusive. If you love the Golden Pear range that comes out at Christmas, then you will definitely love this scent. I've slowly been getting into the jellies, I'm not sure why but I've been really loving them at the moment. This one contains Pear and Cardamom which creates a slight spicy but fresh scent. It also gives me a more spicier Snow Fairy scent... If you ever get to go to Lush Liverpool Spa, I urge you to at least give this one a sniff.

Not Sleepy Shower Bomb

Ugh, I wish I was not sleepy more often! This bomb is a perfect product to use first thing in the morning. I've even used it with Whoosh before (which I'll be talking about later on in the post). Shower Bomb's are a bit of a new concept for most, so, the best way to use one is to, grab the bomb and put it into the palm of your hand, put it under the running shower head, and, use the foam as a creamy shower gel to wash yourself with. This one contains Lemongrass and Lemon Myrtle Oil which invigorates and wakes up the body first thing in the morning. It's just so zesty, I love it.

Plum Rain Shower Gel

I'm singing in the Rain! Even if I am singing about a wonderful Shower product containing Plums. This Shower Gel originally became a part of the Lush family when Lush Oxford Street was revealed to the world. Lush wanted to show their love for Prince, therefore, they decided to create a shower gel. I love this one, because, well it's like no other scent. It's fruity, grassy, sharp, sweet, and warming all at the same time. It contains Fresh Plum Juice and Osmanthus in which give it a deep warming fruity smell.

Comfort Zone Shower Bomb

We all need to be in the comfort zone sometimes! I love anything Comforter scented, so when I smelt this I knew that I would love it. I also love the fact that you can have a Comforter Shower, because, not all of us have the pleasure of having a bath. I think that this one is amazing on cold mornings. It just helps to give a little bit more pep to life.

Rose Jam Shower Gel

Spread this Jam all over my body. I honestly love this product... I love the Rose Jam range! I think that this scent is unisex but I do love it for when I want to be a little bit more feminine for the day. When you think of Rose, you might think of subtle and powdery, but Rose Jam hits you right in the face, with testiness, sweetness and a little bit of floral. It contains Rose and Lemon Oils. I have this in Bubble Bar, Shower and Fragrance form. Ugh I do love it!

Whoosh Shower Jelly

An ooh, an ahh, and a whoosh! I love Mint and I love Lemon, so having two in one Shower product is the best thing ever! It just instantly wakes you up in a morning, which in the colder months, is a must for helping me wake up early for an 9am lecture at University. I also love freezing Shower Jellies as they just add a little bit more pep to Shower Time. (Side note: have you ever slapped a Showet Jelly in store? If not, then, the next time you're in a Lush store, please do it!)

Honey I Washed The Kids Shower Gel

Honey, I washed the kids! They shrunk from the wash, what do we do? This was one of the first scents that I got into at Lush. It's just sweet with a little bit of spice. It reminds me of Honeycomb and honestly, I just think that it needs to be in more products/a body spray! I think that this scent is definitely a love or loathe scent from Lush. It contains Orange and Bergamot Oils.

Red Pill Shower Bomb

Which pill should I choose? Red or Blue? Red or Blue? Just choose one already! This shares its scent with Phoenix Rising, I believe. It's also only available via Lush Liverpool Spa. I love the slightly spicy and sweet combo that I get from this bomb. As it is also getting a bit colder, I've paired this with Hot Toddy and it is wonderful. If you ever get the chance to go to Lush Liverpool Spa then I urge you to try it.

Dirty Springwash Shower Gel

Christines Aguilera wanted to get Dirty, but now its time to get clean. I wasn't a massive fan of the Dirty range a year ago, but I've been warming up to it this year. I love that watery but still sharp Mint scent that reminds me of the Sea mixed with a bit of the fresh English Air from the Countryside. A weird description I know, but smell it and you will know exactly what I mean! I love this Shower Gel and think that everyone needs to try this at least once in their life!

Coco Loco Shower Oil

I've gone loco for the lovely bunch of coconuts that are in the corner of my room. Shower Oils are a new concept at Lush. They're a naked in shower moisturiser. This means that you can moistures in the shower and not have to faff about with more tubs as soon as you've gotten out of the shower. This Oil instantly makes me think that I'm in my own taste of Paradis. It's just so zesty with a touch of creaminess. I love this for those days when you want to feel l;ile you're on a beach somewhere sipping a drink and forgetting about the worries in your life. It contains Coconut Oi, Coconut Cream, and, Lemongrass Oil which instantly gives me a Summer in a product vibe.
