De-Stressing with LUSH for Halloween 2013

After an exhausting work day, there is nothing I enjoy more than a relaxing, scent evoking bath or shower. Scents that we enjoy can influence how we feel and can even positively affect our mood. In fact, when I’m feeling stressed, what I “smell” actually helps de-stress me after a long day. Sounds a bit weird, but it actually works for me. LUSH products are very fragrant and have become my personal stress busters these days! I keep a open bowl of them in every bathroom in my house. I especially love their Bubble Bars & Bath Bombs…..which have quickly found their place in my bath time routine. Let’s take a closer look at LUSH’s Halloween offerings….

Halloween Goodness from LUSH Cosmetics
Lord of Misrule Bath Bomb was inspired by the ruler of the Pagan Feast of Fools. It infuses ordinary bath water with a spicy herbal blend of patchouli, black pepper oil and Fair Trade vanilla absolute. The deep green exterior slowly dissolves to reveal a beautiful wine-coloured center, while popping candies fizz and crackle. It’s really a party in your bathtub!  


Fill your bathtub with warm water, drop in the Bath Bomb and enjoy! remember to relax and enjoy the fragrance!

Ceridwen’s Cauldron Bath Melt quenches and softens skin while providing relief from redness an/or itch. The “Cauldron” is filled with an enchanting potion of oats, lavender and sandalwood that calms and soothes irritated & sensitive skin. It also contains walnut oil as well as cocoa butter to soften dehydrated skin. 

Drop half or a whole bath melt into the tub as it fills with warm water. When the tub is full, get in and let the natural oils soften and moisturize your skin. Bath melts are designed to melt at body temperature so keep them in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight.

Demon in the Dark Soap is an earthy tingly delight for the skin and a wicked refreshment for the senses. This soap is wrapped in a layer of black wax, which you actually have to peel off before you use it. Underneath the wax is a forest green “cleanser” made from fresh mint and antioxidant-rich fresh organic apple juice. It stimulates the surface of the skin and leaves it brighter and cleaner. The fragrance of this soap is very unique and contains peppermint, spearmint and warming clove bud…all of which are invigorating and stimulating.


Remove soap’s wax covering before use.

Pumkin Mumkin Bubble Bar is a variation of the adorable Mumkin Bar that was released last Mother’s Day. Topped with Halloween candy (note the green leaf and licorice top), this bar crumbles into the tub to create lavish bubbles and soft orange water. I LOVE the delicate sweet and earthy fragrance of this one…. it’s simply amazing! 

Crumble bar under running warm water as you fill the tub. The stronger your water pressure, the more bubbles you can create.
