It can be argued – or just accepted – that Halloween is hands-down the most fun holiday of the year. Young or not-so-young-anymore, we can all get in on the fun whether it’s dressing up as our favorite Disney princess or decking our home with ghostly gildings. This Halloween, why not forget the tricks and treat yourself to some fabulous body and beauty offerings! Here are 12 products we’re ghoul-ing over!
Get Creepy Clean with Spooky Scents
Known for its holiday edition candles, soaps and more, Bath and Body Works certainly didn’t disappoint this year! From a Haunted House Luminary to a Hand Soap Dispenser that actually lights up when you use it (my two cats went bonkers!) this year’s Halloween collection is guaranteed to make you eerily clean! Lather up with scents like Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin and Vampire Blood (which, if you didn’t know, apparently smells like plum).
