Some of my favourite LUSH products tend to always be limited edition Christmas releases that I can only get that time of the year. Following my adoration with the Christmas bombs, I decided it’s time to experiment with the Halloween bombs (my preferred season).

Overall I prefer bath bombs compared to bubble bars just because I always feel they’re more exciting, whereas the bars smell amazing and are a lot more value for money. Essentially, I was very excited to try out this bomb because it smelt amazing!

The bomb itself is bright green so I expected my bath water to quickly turn a murky lime concoction – but, LUSH surprised me as I discovered a pink ball inside of the large one causing the bomb to race around my bath. The small ball inside created a jet stream of pink that developed into a deep wine colour mixing into the green like ying yang – I felt like I was sitting in a  witch’s cauldron! The smell was utterly wonderful but I couldn’t work out exactly what it was? Maybe that’s the Halloween factor? Or perhaps, the hidden popping candy was…any bath bomb with popping candy is spookily perfect.

 ellie-skull-halloween BOO  ellie-skull-halloween

This one I was super excited to try out because not only have I never used a bath melt before, but I’m not sure I’ve ever seen a LUSH product that looks so utterly adorable. Little Boo’s scent wasn’t overly strong but sweet enough and as soon as I popped him into my water he sadly, didn’t wow me in the slightest. Like I mentioned earlier, I enjoy a lot of jazzy elements in my choice of bombs so sadly Boo wasn’t really for me. He took a while to melt down into the water and he left my bath water looking pretty much translucent apart from a few white bubbles. He may be cute, but I was slightly disappointed by the lack of excitement, but maybe Boo is more you?

This one isn’t exactly ‘Halloween’ themed but it was part of the collection and after I’d seen videos of it online, I knew I had to try it out. It’s a wonderful size which is good for it’s price; as soon as I popped it into my tub it began to circle in a 360 spurting around an army of colours forming a circular rainbow in my bath. I loved this one so much – from the colours, to the autumnal scent and the after orange colour it left me and my bath feeling relaxed and ready for bed.

ellie-skull-halloween GOTH FAIRY  ellie-skull-halloween

I had never tried a shimmer bar before so I was extremely excited to give this one a go, especially because of how adorably cute he looks. After a shower I rubbed him on my arms and was surprised at how wonderfully glittery my skin had become! Warning: definitely do not use this if you’re not prepared to look like a disco ball for the remainder of the day. Personally, I love glitter so this was no problem to me; also, it smelt amazing, rather like the ‘Space Girl’ bath bomb. I would recommend this one to anyone and I am extremely sad the little goth fairy will be flying away forever after this wonderful season.

I think this bomb might possibly be one of my favourites from the entire collection, not only is the design amazingly ‘Halloween-ey’, but its also so cute because its pink! As soon as I popped him in my bath the smell that exited him was just amazing – for a while I couldn’t work out what the scent reminded me of but I think it was the Christmas exclusive Golden Parcel (which also happens to be one of my favourites). When he fizzed open he swam quickly around my bath with a bright blue jet stream engine that soon mixed with the pink to create a wonderful purple colour. I would definitely buy this one again and totally wish it was a regular not just a Halloween bomb.

ellie-skull-halloween SPARKLY PUMPKIN  ellie-skull-halloween

Due to the popularity of the pumpkin spice latte I figured this one would have had some sort of pumpkin scent – sadly I can’t even describe how this one smelt (but maybe that’s just my Autumn cold kicking in). However, it was super glittery (attacking my bath and my body) and I couldn’t believe how vivid the colour was on the inside! Although I wouldn’t buy this one again, I am looking forward to using it again in my bath (purely for the glitter); I love how much use you get out of bars compared to the bombs.

I hope you enjoyed reading about my LUSH bath bomb reviews; I shall link the LUSH page of products here. Let me know in the comments which LUSH bath bomb is your favourite! I shall link yesterday’s ‘Blogaween’ post here. I cannot believe ‘Blogaween’ has come to an end, I’ve enjoyed it so much and subsequently cannot wait for Christmas now; I hope you enjoyed reading my ‘Blogaween’ posts as much as I did writing them! See you soon Blogaween-er’s!
