With Halloween just around the corner, you may be wondering how to celebrate the season here in Japan. There are numerous Halloween events coming up on the calendar including on-theme high teas and amusement parks, but what about the folks who would rather enjoy a quiet evening in?
The bath product gurus at Lush have created an impressive lineup of Halloween-themed goodies for customers, and they'll be on sale on the Lush Japan website from September 8th and in stores from September 9th.
Anyone who has visited a Lush store would say that their bath bombs are their signature product, and there are a whole host of Halloween-themed ones to choose from. For the "go big or go home" crowd, there's the giant pumpkin bath bomb (limited to the Lush Shinjuku store) which comes filled with flower petals. At all stores you'll find the Punkin Pumpkin, Bat Art, Ghostie, and Lord of Misrule bath bombs (¥ 850 each, including tax), which are almost too pretty to see dissolve in your tub.
For those who like bubbles, there's the Extra Terrestrial bubble bar (¥ 920 including tax) with a zingy citrus-ramune scent, and the Screamo bubble bar (¥ 1,400 including tax) which is reminiscent of the painting "The Scream" by Edvard Munch.
If you only have a shower at home, they've got you covered there too — there are a variety of shower jellies and soaps to choose from. The Spicy Pie soap (¥ 900 including tax) sounds like the stuff pumpkin spice fans would dream of, with hints of maple, cinnamon, ginger, and clove scents. There's also the Ghost in the Dark soap (¥ 920 including tax), which does actually glow in the dark! It's fragranced with lemongrass and bergamot, ensuring a refreshing and revitalizing shower experience.
