This time last year I was a Christmas temp at LUSH and was there in time to enjoy the amazing Mexican 'Day of the Dead' themed products. These vibrant colourful products were some of my favourite LUSH products last year and I'm pleased that they're back this year with two products from last year's range and two newbies.
Lady Catrina Soap
Lady Catrina was was an etching from the early 20th Century by Jose Guadalupe Posada that parodied the rich and fashionable, commenting that even the rich can't escape death. Since then, Lady Catrina has been an iconic Day of the Dead image and big colourful hats are worn as part of the celebrations.
LUSH's own take is this fabulous giant soap hat, with colourful flowers and a zesty mix of fruit pastel and lime scents. It also contains Mexican agave nectar, which will soften your skin and bring it back to life. It is one of my favourite LUSH soaps!
|£2.95 PER 100g|
In homage to Mexican 'sugar skulls' LUSH have created these fizzy uplifting ballistics. The refreshing lime and neroli fragrance helps the gorgeous citrus smell stay on your skin and the olibanum (frankincense) softens and protects the skin.
And if you party a little too hard this Halloween, they are a great hangover remedy, the uplifting fragrances will help clear that fuzzy head.
Calacas is Spanish for skeleton and this jelly is shaped like a skull to represent another piece of Day of the Dead imagery, the dancing skull.
These wobbly jelly skulls contain aloe vera gel to soften and sooth your skin after a dreary autumn day and the invigorating lime helps revive. Or for a bracing morning wake up try freezing first...if you dare!
LUSH's knot-wraps are a great environmentally friendly way to wrap gifts and for Halloween they have created this cute pumpkin knot-wrap to wrap up all of your lovely Day of the Dead products!
