Lush Obsessives Are Losing It Over This Emoji-Inspired Bath Bomb
There's no doubt that Lush is a wonderland of skin-softening lotions and hair-boosting potions, but it's also a place for FUN. From wobbly shower jellies to popcorn-inspired lip scrub, the brand know how to take products that work and infuse them with charm and wit. (Our favourite punny product name? American Cream—which also happens to be a top seller BTW.) Lush takes their happy-making antics to the next level a few times a year with the launch of covetable limited edition holiday collections. While we're always excited to rifle through a box packed with Lush treats, the brand's Halloween offering this year is truly next-level. (True story: Unwrapping the range caused more squeals of delight than an office visit from The Bachelor...) It addition to a spicy bonfire-inspired soap and shimmery pumpkin bubble bar, the range features a Jack-o'-lantern emoji bath bomb that's so damn good it's already sold out online. Keen to know if it stacks up to old favourites like Avobath and Tisty Tosty?

The bonfire-inspired soap
Halloween isn't really prime time for stoked hearths and bonfires in Australia, but this vanilla and spice-spiked soap ($8) makes us wish it was. The inclusion of clove oil means the lather is a teensy bit warming—the perfect thing for scrubbing sore muscles.
Fireside Soap ($8)
The Jack-o'-lantern emoji bath bomb
This spooky emoji-inspired bath bomb is the stuff Halloween dreams are made of. Rich in spicy cinnamon and pimento berry, it's also got a citrusy tang to it. Lighter and fresher than you might expect, it's the perfect end to a long day of trick-or-treating.
Pumpkin Bath Bomb ($7)
The Harry Potter fan favourite
Any Pottermaniacs out there? You need this magic wand-inspired soap in your life. Scented with uplifting tangerine and orange (great for early morning starts), it's also rich in coconut oil for enchantingly soft skin.

The slime-esque body wash
It's not every day a body wash resembling MTV's signature green goo crosses the desk of a beauty editor. This one, as slimy as it looks, smells amazing. It's spicy, thanks to patchouli and pepper, with creamy vanilla thrown in for balance. Formulated with organic wheatgerm oil, it's so hydrating you won't need lotion afterwards.
The "goth fairy" sparkle bar
This shimmer bar may be named for a goth fairy but the ethereal multi-coloured gleam it leaves behind is probably better suited to a garden nymph. (Or, you know, anyone who likes glitter.) Made with a mix of softening butters, it scents skin with a zesty grapefruit and almond fragrance.
Goth Fairy Shimmer Bar ($10)
The pumpkin spice bubble bar
Inspired by a very Lush-like retelling of Cinderella, this lime and juniper-scented bubble bar smells a little like an expensive cocktail. Flecked with enough gold glitter to cover you in sparkles, it'll make you feel royal whether you're off to a ball (unlikely) or bed.
