celebrate new beginnings

Lush’s 2023 Diwali collection

The 2023 Lush Diwali collection will launch online and in stores nationwide on Thursday 5th October, celebrating new beginnings, unity, peace and harmony. 

Diwali, also sometimes referred to as Deepavali, means “row of lights” and marks the start of the New Year. The celebration focuses on the light bringing loved ones together, enjoying beautiful traditions and cultures. 

The range was created in partnership with Co-Create, a UK-based product creation internship for Lush seasonal ranges, to lift up authentic stories from their respective communities, promoting diversity, inclusion, equity and belonging. 

Whether you plan on treating yourself to these comforting, colourful delights, or gifting to your loved ones, there’s something special for everyone to enjoy Diwali celebrations.
