A few days before Halloween in New Jersey back in the day we “celebrated” something called Mischief Night where kids would go out and put shaving cream everywhere, toilet paper street signs and shoot beers (not sure how this started?) and eggs all over each others heads. A funny thing happened after I cleaned up from my first Mischief Night: I realized how amazing my hair felt after the beer and egg concoction rinsed out. From there my link between Halloween and natural beauty was born. Today, celebrity makeup artist and balanced beauty expert Chantal Moore brings us not one but three (!) fabulously hand-crafted beauty products to get you thinking beautifully festive this season!!!
From Chantal: “This weeks Balanced Beauty contains not just one product pick but three and is an ode to October & November’s spookiest celebrations- Halloween and Day of the Dead. They are all brought to you by Lush Fresh Handmade Cosmetics. Lush has some super yummy, limited edition Halloween treats that I loved and you really need to know about….
Twilight Shower Gel was inspired by their very popular Twilight Bath Bomb. This iridescent purple, lavender oil infused shower gel smells sensual yet clean and looks super cool. Prettiest shower gel I’ve seen and it leaves the skin feeling silky smooth. Looking for a sparkly & magically uplifting aromatherapy bathing experience? Look no further!
Green Calacas Shower Jelly is inspired by the iconic, brightly painted Sugar Skulls of Mexico’s Day of the Dead celebration. These green jelly Sugar Skulls are made with seaweed & aloe vera gel and are infused with neroli and lime oil. Smells absolutely gorgeous.
Pumpkin Soap. This will inspire you to get excited about Pumpkin EVERYTHING this season. This is an adorable little pumpkin shaped soap that brings lots of fresh pumpkin, spicy clove, cinnamon, cardamom, and spearmint bubbles to your Autumn bathing rituals. This is a perfect Halloween party gift.
Visit the Lush website HERE to see more of their limited edition Halloween treats.”
