It's officially October, and that means it's finally socially acceptable to start celebrating Halloween. And cosmetics company Lush is celebrating Halloween in a major way this year. If you follow the beauty industry, you know LUSH has some seriously dedicated fans. Known as "Lushies," people who love Lush like, really love it. So what better way to celebrate Halloween with super dedicated fans than hosting secret giveaways all October on Snapchat?
That's right, if you follow Lush on Snapchat and are a night owl, you'll be the first to know about giveaways of all of Lush's super spooky Halloween-themed bath bombs. Of course, Lush is a UK-based brand, and "late night" in the UK is actually early evening in the U.S., but don't worry. This contest applies exclusively to Lush North America, and it'll open starting at midnight this Wednesday, Oct. 4 and continue on every Wednesday through the end of October.
So what do you have to do? The brand issued a press release about the contest Wednesday morning, and it says that the contest will "reward those with the spookiest contest entries" by sending them free limited-edition Lush Halloween products. And according to the release, each contest disappears in the morning, "leaving no trace that it ever happened…except for the assortment of limited-edition cult favorite products headed straight to the contest winners’ doorsteps…" And you're definitely going to want to try out these limited-edition cult favorite products.
They look pretty amazing, right? Lush took its popular bath bomb, bubble bar, lip scrub and soap formulations and turned them into an amazing Halloween-themed collection, and you're going to want all of them. So if you're a night owl, start following @lushfreshsnaps on Snapchat now, and continue following the hashtag #LushAfterDark on social media for updates about the contest. If you're not a night owl? Set those alarms for all the Lush contests for the rest of October now. Here's a look at what the prizes could include.
