Lush launches limited edition Stranger Things bath bomb collaboration
Fresh, handmade cosmetics company Lush is releasing a limited edition bathing duo in celebration of Stranger Things Day. On 6th November 1983, Will Byers went missing in Hawkins, Indiana. Long after the town gave up the search, his friends kept looking… and discovered a mysterious girl known only by a number: Eleven. She was alone, hunted, and extremely powerful. Eleven would stop at nothing to help them find their friend. Today Stranger Things fans everywhere celebrate 6th November as ‘Stranger Things Day,’ a special day to share their love for the series.
Exclusively available on the UK and NA Lush websites, The Hellfire Club Bathing Duo, £15, will give fans the chance to get their hands on two limited edition handmade bath bombs based on some of the latest season’s most popular motifs, as well as two collectible playing cards compatible with the Dungeons and Dragons game played in the show.
The ‘D8’ bath bomb is a 3D replica of the eight-sided dice used by the Hellfire Club to play Dungeons and Dragons, featuring numbers relating to the show and Lush, such as 11 (the name of the main character ‘El’ who has supernatural powers) and 29 (the address of the Lush’s first ever shop in Poole, Dorset UK).
Roll the D8 into warm waters to unleash two colourful paths, as waves of peppermint unfurl to sharpen minds and strengthen characters. Scented with Lush fan favourite fragrance Intergalactic.
‘The Rift’ is a pitch black bath bomb, appearing to split on the surface to unveil a fury of red and orange fire bubbling beneath the surface. This one has a spicy scent and warming aromas and will crackle, swirl and pop in the waters around budding world-savers ahead of the final series, which will begin filming next year.
The bathing duo will also contain two limited edition, collectible playing cards, designed by Lush staff who play Dungeons and Dragons, which can be played in a real game.
The collaboration will officially launch at 11am on 6th November, however Lush App users will receive early access to purchase the gift box at 11am on 5th November.
Netflix’s Stranger Things returned for its fourth season earlier this year and gripped fans worldwide, becoming Netflix’s most popular English-language TV series ever.
Speaking about the collaboration, Melody Morton, Concepts Creative Director at Lush, said:
Exclusively available on the Lush website in the UK and US, The Hellfire Club Bathing Duo (£15) will hit the website at 11am on Sunday 6th November.
