My sister calls lilies “funeral flowers”. No wonder Lush named it’s popular Halloween Shower Gel after a ghost!
Ghost Shower Gel is Lush’s seasonal Halloween release fragranced with a burst of lily of the valley. I’d never thought I’d say I like the smell of lilies but once a year I do so haul a large bottle of Ghost and allow it to haunt my shower for several weeks. The scent is…addicting somehow.
With much disappointment I had to say Goodbye to Lush Ghost Shower Gel this year. Le sigh. Lush decided to introduce it in a Shower Jelly format. I really dislike Shower Jellies as they end up more down the drain than on my body or hair. Meh, burp, grrr, no like!
If you don’t mind spooking up your shower with a jelly you can haul Ghost Shower Jelly now, for a limited time, at www.lush.com
I can’t get the stupid Cruella song out of my head every since word popped on E.L.F.’s new Villain Eye Palette Collection. I sing it in the shower, I hum it at work, God what an ear worm to have.
As you know E.L.F. released three Disney Villain inspired Eyeshadow Palettes for Halloween 2012. The palettes are $9.99 each and available exclusively at Walgreens (in most cases they can be found in the Halloween section of the store).
The palettes are made from a sturdy cardboard and feature essentials for creating a Villain themed eye look.
I got my hands on Cruella’s Eyeshadow Palette recently.
Ah you might have heard me whisper the joy of Sugar Skull in your ears before. It’s one of several limited edition fragrances from the Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab, creator of unique fragrance oils!
Each year the Lab dishes out a slew of hand blended fragrance oils in a variety of complex scents to celebrate Halloween.
Sugar Skull has been in my rotation for many a year and I have several bottles under my belt but I continue to buy it year after year as it seems to have a slight change each year that I enjoy discovering.
No word yet on Lush Halloween 2012 however, the UK does have out a few retro items that are available now for purchase. Lady Catrina Soap is not one of them, very sad sigh here.
I hope to see something new and exciting from Lush for Halloween this year but I have hopes that Catrina will return as it is one of my favorite soaps. I also wish that Lush would do a shower gel again in the scent but sadly I have yet to see the return.
Let’s hope we’ll see it this year.
For now here’s a look at Lush Retro Halloween 2012.
