LUSH Halloween 2014 Collection Review - Includes Wizard Hat Gift Set


lush halloween 2014 collection review

LUSH Halloween 2014

You guys know I live for LUSH's holiday collections. Remember last Halloween's amazing collection? I loved it and I have to say, I may be even more in love with this year's collection (except Pumkin Mumkin, he's my boo and I will forever love him above all else!). 

The second I saw this collection I was totally thrilled. A wizard hat? The return of one of my favorite bath bombs? Yes, yes, yes!

I know I gave you guys a little teaser before I traveled last week, but I'm happy to say I have now had the chance to review each item and jot down my thoughts for you.

What better way to spend the night after taking the little guys trick-or-treating or hitting up a fabulous Halloween party? Halloween bath time, here you come!

LUSH Halloween 2014 Product Review

LUSH Fairy Ring Soap

Product Type - bar soap
Scent - jasmine floral scent
On the Skin - nice slip; cleanses well; leaves soft scent behind
Price - $7.95 (3.5 oz)
Where to Buy - LUSH stores/
My Thoughts - First of all, I'm a huge fan of LUSH's soap, which tends to be one of the only soaps we keep by the sinks in our bathrooms. This smells beautiful! The Jasmine scent is strong enough to easily detect, but soft and lovely. I love the name of this soap, too! If you're not familiar, several European cultures have different folklore about Fairy Rings or circles of mushrooms that spontaneously occur. The Hub's family is Irish and Celtic tradition believes these are left behind by dancing pixies or elves. Super fun! The fact this soap is made using fresh mushrooms and has a name related to such a whimsical idea is perfect in my opinion.

LUSH Lord of Misrule Bath Bomb

Product Type - bath bomb
Scent - vanilla and patchouli
In the Bath - fizzes well; pop rocks crackle making it a run experience; mix of green, silver and magenta colors swirl together
Price - $6.95 (7.1 oz)
Where to Buy - LUSH Stores/
My Thoughts - If you missed my raving review last year, I'm a HUGE fan of this bath bomb. While I'm actually not a fan of patchouli, the scent of this bath bomb is so perfectly constructed that it's actually one of my all-time favorites. Inspired by the Feast of Fools, it's fun to use with it's multiple colors and popping candies, but even better, it smells so lovely and fills the entire upstairs with its scent when we use it. This is a must in my opinion!  

LUSH Northern Lights Bath Bomb

Product Type - bath bomb
Scent - floral (same scent as last year's Chrismas Eve Bubble Bar of Christmas Past)
In the Bath - fizzes well; dissolves from purple to blue to green
Price - $5.95 (3.5 oz)
Where to Buy - LUSH Stores/
My Thoughts - This is easily one of the prettiest looking bath bombs I personally think they've done judging by both its appearance before you use it and while it fizzes! It's so Halloween-perfect I can't even stand it :) If you look close you can see these adorable little stars, too. Just so cute! The scent is very floral so if that's your jam you'll probably be a fan of this one.

LUSH Sparkly Pumpkin Bubble Bar

Product Type - bubble bar
Scent - citrus and berry (think a citrus-y sangria)
In the Bath - creates amazing bubbles; gold shimmer will need to be rinsed off
Price - $7.95 (3.5 oz)
Where to Buy - LUSH Stores/
My Thoughts -  LUSH's bubble bars are fantastic if you're the type that like commercial-worthy mountains of bubbles in your tub. The scent on this bubble bar is so fun--it really does smell like a citrus-y sangria to me! While the shimmer does require some rinsing off of both you and your tub, it comes off pretty easily. Overall, a super yummy smelling bubble bar if you don't mind some extra rinsing afterward!

LUSH Sparkler Bath Bomb

Product Type - bath bomb
Scent - Rose Jam (one of my favorites!!!)
In the Bath - fizzes well; popping candy make it extra fun; dissolves into mix of yellow and rosy red-brown colors
Price - $6.95 (3.5 oz)
Where to Buy - LUSH Stores/
My Thoughts -  If you love the Rose Jam scent don't think twice, just grab this bath bomb! It is one of my favorite scents from LUSH and anything they release in this scent has to come home with me. Delicious, perfect scent aside, this bath bomb is super fun between its dayglo exterior, popping candies and sparkly rosy layers. This is one of those bath bombs that is just as amusing to watch fizz as it is lovely to soak in. Super, super amusing for the little ones as well in my experience.

LUSH Star Light, Star Bright Bath Melt

Product Type - bath melt
Scent - lime with a hint of ginger zing
In the Bath - dissolves into hot water and softens the water beautifully; silver shimmer requires extra rinsing from tub and body
Price - $6.95 (1.5 oz)
Where to Buy - LUSH Stores/
My Thoughts -  If you don't mind a little extra work, this bath melt turns water into hydrating, silky, silver loveliness. The shimmer will get on everything though, so be warned ;) The scent on this is super yummy if you like citrus.

By the way, anyone else hear "Lucky Star" by Madonna when they read the name of this bath melt? Child of the 80s ;)

LUSH Wizard Bubble Bar

Product Type - bubble bar
Scent - citrus with something slightly spicy at the end
In the Bath - mounds of bubbles if you can bear to break him apart
Price - $7.95 (1.5 oz)
Where to Buy - LUSH Stores/
My Thoughts -  I swear LUSH knows how to make the world's cutest bath products. I can now add LUSH's Wizard to my ever-growing list of bath products too cute to use--right up there with Pumkin Mumkin, the Bunny from East and the Christmas Penguin. This little wizard is too precious for words! *sigh* He smells lovely as well and should you choose to use him in your bath, he will conjure up a magical amount of bubbles. He's just too darn cute!!!! My little guys went nuts over him, too.

LUSH Wizard Hat Gift Set

Product Type - Halloween bath set
Products Included - Star Light, Star Bright Bath Melt; Wizard Bubble Bar; Sparkler Bath Bomb
Price - $27.95
Where to Buy - LUSH Stores/
My Thoughts -  This is seriously such a cute set! Is it just me or does that hat remind you a little of the wizard hat from Fantasia during the Sorcerer's Apprentice bit? Where are my dancing, cleaning brooms?! The packaging is fun, but the products inside do not disappoint either. And to top it off, the cat can actually be warn as a wizard hat if you add some string. So darn cute and well worth the purchase. 

Now all I can hear in my head is "The Sorcerer's Apprentice"... 

What do you think? Will you be nabbing any of these fun Halloween goodies? Which are your favorites?
