Lush Halloween Mini-Haul!

Everyone gets excited for the seasonal Lush products, but I think that there is a certain buzz around the Halloween collection that they release! Autumn and Halloween brings something out in people, it makes people feel cosy and they love the warm scents that get released around this time. Me however, I'm a weird one, because I have to be really careful with what I buy around autumn, because I thoroughly HATE the smell of spices and certain 'cosy' scents.

I went to Lush to try some of their Halloween products and here are the ones I picked up!

Bewitched: This is the main reason I wanted to go to Lush. I adore kitties and this was just too good to pass up on. Luckily the scent is not spicy and is really pleasant and fruity (supposedly smelling like blackberry). This bubble bar is like all others and creates a gorgeous lather that explodes in your bath! The scent is great and it turns your water a grey colour, that is surprisingly not nasty looking! The only problem I have is chopping this little cat up to put in my bath *sad face*.

Pumpkin: This one does what it says on the tin... well... bag? This bath bomb shaped into a Halloween classic does have a slightly spicy smell but the sweetness definitely overpowers it! It smells slightly orangey/citrus  but the spice subtly comes through. The vanilla is what causes it not to be overpowering but doesn't mask it enough to wipe it out completely. I'd definitely recommend it for when you want a cosy night in but also want a bit of fun!

There were quite a few others in the collection that I really like the look of but these were the ones that won me over. I really hate the look of the jelly bombs, I tested one in store and it literally creates a layer of 'jelly' on the top of the bath, which honestly just looks like slime. I can't even imagine having to get out of the bath after a jelly bomb because I think you would just need to have another shower afterwards! The jelly bombs really don't float my boat, but let me know what you think of them if you have tried them!

Have you picked anything up from the Halloween collection? What are your favourites? Let me know!

Speak to you soon!
