Power-up your bathing as Lush joins forces with Nintendo + Illumination’s The Super Mario Bros. Movie to launch a limited- edition range of products.
Nintendo + Illumination’s The Super Mario Bros. Movie Arrives in Cinemas April 20th, 2023
The collaboration that no one thought they needed ‘till now! The fresh handmade cosmetics company, Lush, is releasing an exclusive product collection ahead of Nintendo + Illumination’s new animated action comedy The Super Mario Bros. Movie (in cinemas April 20th), featuring a Princess Peach body spray, Mario and Luigi shower gels and a first-of-its-kind ‘surprise’ mystery Question Block bath bomb with power-up soaps hidden inside!
Exclusively available in Lush stores and online, the Lush X The Super Mario Bros. Movie collection gives fans the chance to get their hands on a limited-edition 8-piece range based on some of the most popular characters from The Super Mario Bros. Movie.
The first product of its kind, which Lush has never created before, is the Question Block bath bomb with a hidden collectable power-up soap inside, each with its own unique fragrance and colour. From mischievous mushrooms, to the elusive and exclusive gold star, there are six to choose from!
Two new shower gels are hitting the shelves, which promise to brighten up any bathroom: a red nostalgic cola-cube-scented Mario shower gel packed with cleansing pomegranate juice, and a fluorescent green Luigi shower gel scented with crisp, clean apple and rose absolute.
A Gold Coin soap featuring fan favourite ‘Honey I Washed the Kids’ scent will clean even the hardest working adventurers, and two shower jellies, based on the movie’s Princess Peach and Bowser, are scented with peaches and pineapple, and Lush’s spicy ‘Fireside’ scent.
Gold Coin Soap, RM40 each
Princess Peach Shower Jelly (RM55 for 100g, RM99 for 240g)
Bowser Shower Jelly (RM55 for 100g, RM99 for 240g)
Lush has dedicated a body spray to the heroine of the movie, the iconic Princess Peach, creating an entirely new scent: a juicy blend of peaches and pineapple.
