Every year, the popular all-natural cosmetics retailer LUSH comes out with special new products for the Halloween season. Last year, these goodies included pumpkin bath bombs and adorable Goth Fairy shimmer bars. Now these old favorites are back, along with a whole collection of brand new products! The 2017 Halloween line appeared in stores just last week, and I can't wait to go pick myself up some new gothic goodies. Here are some of the new products I'm most excited to try:
Bewitched bubble bar
The picture alone should show you why I need this. It's a bubble bath bar in the shape of a cat head! To use this product, you just crumple it under warm running water. It will fill your bath with fragrant, berry-scented bubbles, and reviews say that it even turns the water black. Who knew bubble baths could be so spooky?
Secret Arts jelly bomb
LUSH jelly bombs are like bath bombs, but instead of just turning your bath water fun colors, they transform it into soothing, skin softening gel. This spooky eye-like orb had been released in the UK as a Harry Potter-themed "Dark Arts" jelly bomb, but now it's party of the Halloween line and has been renamed "Secret Arts." It looks gray and rock-like on the outside, but once you drop it into a warm bath, you'll see the surprising pink interior as it releases a dark, sparkly gel. On top of that, it smells deliciously of cinnamon, orange, and almond.
While we're here cooking up fragrant potions of herbs and oils in our bathtubs, might as well grab a chunk of this new Hedgewitch soap. The soap is made with moisturizing fair trade cocoa butter and actual freeze-dried blackberries. The strong berry scent is balanced with some softly sweet honeysuckle. What a great way to bring some summer magic into fall.
Ectoplasm jelly bomb
Secret Arts isn't the only new jelly bomb on the list. There's also this one, with its adorable little ghostie! Purple and white on the outside, Ectoplasm releases a skin-softening slime of green, purple and yellow. The key ingredient in this and other LUSH jelly bombs is the sodium alginate, which comes from seaweed and is super nourishing for your skin. Apart from these benefits, Ectoplasm also has a lovely grapefruit and tangerine scent, so no need to call the Ghost Busters on this one!
Black Rose naked lip tint

This one's already out of stock on the LUSH website, and I can see why. It's absolutely gorgeous! The lip-tint comes in a solid block molded into a flower shape that looks nearly black. When you rub it onto your lips, however, it comes out a soft, rosy pink. It's got nourishing ingredients like Kalahari melon oil and jojoba oil, and smells like spearmint and mandarin orange. It's almost too pretty to use, but too tempting not to! If the solid form weirds you out or seems impractical, LUSH also has a regular Black Rose lip tint, which contains the same great ingredients but comes in a tube like chapstick.
What do you think of LUSH's new Halloween line? Have you tried any of them yet? Let me know your thoughts in the comments!
