bubblebath of the dead...

...with a bubbly sugarskull...

I looooove sugarskulls - so I couldn't resist buying one of these sweet skulls last Halloween - and last Sunday it was time to try it - after it decorated my bathroom for a few months :D

It was the Skullduggery bath ballistic from lush - ia special limited edition for Halloween 2011 - and I hope it will recur next Day of the Dead in the lush stores.
I love this nice and fresh scent - a decent fragrance with lime and neroli and olibanum (also known as frankincense resinoid - a woody aromatic oil which covers the skin with a softening film). The citrusy scent is refreshing and it was a blessing using it after a long long party night!
These decorated skulls, also known as Sugar Skulls or Calaveras are iconic in Mexican Day of the Dead imagery. Sugar skulls represent a departed soul, with the name written on the forehead and placed on the home ofrenda or gravestone to honor the return of a particular spirit. I like this Mexican tradition and I hope Lush will continue this tradition in relaunching these skulls as soon as possible :D

Have a nice and scary evening
sugar kisses
yours
