Halloween has arrived at Lush! This year I was very restrained and only picked up the one item I'm not having as many baths as I used to, and I don't fancy using Halloween bath products in April. This is the Sparkly Pumpkin bubble bar which costs £3.50.

Firstly lets just address the glittery elephant in the room; this is covered with beautiful gold sparkles, which will float around in your bath water and make it look magical but they will also stick to your tub, so if that bothers you, this isn't for you!

Scent wise it's beautiful. I was worried (I sent Kenny to purchase it so couldn't sniff it before I bought it) that it would have a very spicy smell that would be nice, but very Christmassy; that the Halloween scents would be like Diet-Christmas or Christmas-Lite - but this has a very unique, very distinctly Autumnal scent that I was pleasantly surprised by. It's nice to have Halloween/Autumn as something entirely separate to celebrate before we move on to the winter festivities. The Sparkly Pumpkin has a fruity, almost earthy smell. It isn't sweet, it isn't musky, it just smells very warming - it contains limes, grapefruit and juniperberry for scent - but it really doesn't smell sharp or citrus-ish.

I don't have long baths, or deep baths, so I elected to just use half of this (as I usually would with a Lush bubble bar). I would say that was fine for me, but if you do have deeper baths, I would say you probably do need to use all of it in order for your water to turn a delightuful pumpkin colour.

I had a lovely time soaking in this; I love seeing the gold lustre floating around, and for any sensitive skinned folks out there, I can report that this didn't dry out or irritate my sensitive skin.

Overall I loved this product and I'm really glad I tried it - it was a very Autumnal bath experience and one I would love to repeat.

Have you tried any of the Halloween products from Lush? What did you think? If (hypothetically of course) I was going to try something else, what would you recommend?

  1. I haven't tried the Halloween ones yet but I did get my hands on some of their Christmas stuff and so far I am impressed! x
