Autumn Lush Haul (+ a few bits from the halloween range!)


It's that time of year again where Lush basically becomes my life and I spend every waking hour in the bath with some sort of cinammon scented bubble bar.. and I freaking can't wait! I actually haven't made that many lush orders this year so far but you can bet me and the delivery man who drops off my lush parcels will be on a first name basis come Christmas, haha! Speaking of Christmas... I actually ordered this little haul before the Christmas range came out, so don't worry, I haven't forgotten about it and I will for sure be doing a Christmas haul at some point in the near future, so get excited! I was actually planning on going to the Christmas launch in my local Lush this week but work overran by so much that I completely missed it.. so as you can guess I was not a happy bunny in the slightest, but I definitely can't wait to make a Christmas order soon! But anyways, this Autumn haul obviously features a few bits from the Halloween range (which I always love every single year!) I didn't buy everything from the range, since I'm not the biggest fan of bath bombs, but you can click here to see the whole range! I also got a few bits from the online exclusive range, since I've pretty much tried and smelled everything in my local store and I wanted to try something completely new, so if you want to try these out for yourselves definitely get an online order! Also, can we just talk about how, in the online orders, they include a cute little polaroid of lush kitchen actually making a few of your products... how cool is that!? Also, let me know in the comments what your favourite bits from the Halloween range are and also tell me how much you also love sparkly pumpkin.. because I can't get enough of it, haha!



Sparkly Pumpkin Bubble Bar // I couldn't make an Autumn lush order without including this little gem! I fell in love with the sparkly pumpkin last year and ended up using around 5-6 of these just in the month of October.. oops! So I actually ordered 2 just to keep me going for a few weeks, haha! If you haven't tried this one for yourself (first of all, go and get it right now and run yourself a bath, haha!) but this little pumpkin is basically the most glittery little bubble bar that completely symbolises all things Autumn and Halloween, since what is Halloween without pumpkins?! The scent is gorgeous, with notes of juniper berry, lime and grapefruit its definitely a scent I would describe as zesty.. it also kind of has a hint of pine and wood which is why it reminds me of Autumn so much I suppose! As you can guess, this little pumpkin turns your water bright yellow-y orange, just break him in half and crumble under running water and get ready to enjoy a gorgeous, warm, bath - perfect for a cold Autumn night! Obviously, as with pretty much all of Lush's bath products, this bubble bar is super moisturising and leaves your skin feeling super soft and nourished! This is definitely one of the reasons why I love bath's in Autumn and Winter so much because my skin is desperate for some moisture and some love, haha! So if you're looking for something to buy from the halloween range this month I definitely recommend this bubble bar - only if you don't mind getting a little bit covered in glitter of course, haha! 


Wonder WooHoo Bubble Bar // Of course, this is another bubble bar (I'm telling you, I'm obsessed, haha!) this one is actually an online exclusive, so if you fancy buying it for yourself you'll have to make an online order. I believe this one was actually part of the 2014 mothers day range actually as it is definitely inspired by Wonder Woman! Once again this one is COVERED in glitter, so be prepared for glittery hands and a glitter bath.. for a while, haha! This bubble bar is very sweet and zesty and kind of reminds me of orange sweets but with a woody undertone... so definitely another autumnal scented bath for me! I haven't actually used this one in the bath yet, but I am definitely excited to see what colour the water turns and if it makes as many bubbles as I'm hoping, the only downside so far for me is the fact that it was a lot smaller than I was expecting as it's quite a bit littler than the average bubble bar, not that you can really tell from the picture - I'm obviously still excited to try it out though and I'm sure I can still get around 2 baths out of it! 


Boo Bath Melt // I've never actually tried a bath melt before and I'm pretty exctited to give it a go, since I'm not really sure what to expect! But, after mentioning that I really wanted to try this cute little ghost to my best friend Zoe, she actually went out and bought it for me, bless her! This little cutie is actually an addition to this years Halloween range and I'm told it's 50% bubble bar and 50% bath melt so I am definitely excited to see what kind of results that gives! (I might have to do a full review once I've tried it out, if you guys want?!) The scent of the bath melt is actually really difficult to describe as it's super subtle - me and Zoe spent way too long sniffing this thing, trying to decide what it actually smells like and the only way I can really describe it is very fresh but with a fruity undertone. The notes are actually mandarin and ginger, but the ginger is definitely not overpowering at all which gives this a very nice autumn scent.. I seriously can't wait to get completely moisturised and feel super nourished after this bath!


Back For Breakfast Shower Gel // I wanted to give this shower gel a go, since I've been wanting to buy a new lush shower gel for a while now - the last one I bought was actually Prince Charming last Valentines Day, mainly because I can never find a shower gel I like the scent of when I look in store! The thing that drew me to this one in particular was mainly the fact that it's got a citrus-y scent (can you tell I like citrus?!) which I usually like when it comes to bubble bars and other lush things so it was a fairly good bet that I would like this one. When it arrived and I smelt it in the bottle, I must admit I wasn't overly excited about it, I mean it smelt nice but I wasn't sure if I liked it or not. But after trying it in the shower just now I definitely like the scent a lot more than I first thought! The scent is very lemon-y to me and has sort of a lemon sherbet type of smell - not quite as strong and sweet as the Refresher shower jelly (which I talked about in this favourites post, if you want to check that out!) but still definitely a sweet-like smell, which I don't hate! I really do love lush shower gels because they're super moisturising and the scent always lingers on your skin for so long afterwards and who doesn't want to smell like lemon sweets!!? I seriously can't wait to order Snow Fairy this Christmas though, that will for sure be a new favourite!
