Take a peek inside the witch’s cauldron… a first look at Lush’s 2023 Halloween range!
Lush has revealed its 2023 Halloween collection, featuring bath bombs, bubble bars, glow-in-the-dark soaps, shower slimes and more!
Launching online on 8th September 2023 and in-stores starting 11th September 2023 with plenty of newness and some returning favourites, Halloween is always one of Lush’s biggest collections – and this year is no exception.
Bestselling, fan-favourites such as Bart Art bath bomb, Alien bubble bar and glow-in-the-dark Ghostie soap will be making a comeback this year, all handmade using ethically-sourced essential oils, and packaging-free.
Lush’s ethical buying policy means all its products use the finest essential oils and absolutes, the best natural raw materials, safe synthetics, either no packaging or 100% recycled and recyclable packaging, and no palm oil.
New for 2023 is a Lord of Misrule soap, Bonehead bubble bar and pumpkin spice-scented home fragrance Lush Melt, made using organic pumpkin seed oil. Lush’s Halloween mischief-maker Lord of Misrule will be returning this year in a new animation coming Monday 25 September, featuring a world-bending mishap in the lab…
alongside a new bath bomb, bubble bar and soap, as well as his much-loved shower gel, massage bar, candle and fragrances.
Speaking about the inspiration behind the collection, Erica Vega, Brand Product Expert at Lush, said: “”Halloween is pure shrieking delight, and we have no shortage of strange and unusual treats.
“Lush loves the characters of Halloween – screaming banshees, vampires, aliens and mummies are all invited to the monster mash! We have ways to tickle all the senses – dip into sparkling slime, let fruity scented octopus tentacles slither over your hands, or taste the nostalgic candy corn lip scrub.”
