Pumpkin soap

Lush Time Xmas 2008: You’ll want a whole one, but be warned; it’s even heavier than a real pumpkin and it’s not hollow inside. Probably best to get yourself a manageable slice or two. Mo’s new soap is a lovely creamy pumpkin coloured affair with a scent that she borrowed from the gorgeous Almond Buttercream: sweet wild orange, lime, mandarin and spice cinnamon. (If you’re northern, like Emma from training and Auntie Pamela, and could only have a turnip for Halloween when you were little, this more than makes up for the childhood deprivation.) It’s only around for Halloween so get yours before All Hallows Day.

Here’s a picture of my Pumpkin soap back then. It’s a 100g piece that Lush were selling via the website.   The big slab of soap that they sold in the store that Halloween looked like the below photo.  I LOVE these soaps, the smell is great.
