I’m a recessionista at heart and Christmas just happens to be my all time fave holiday, so you can imagine how giddy I got about Winter Goodies: Nothing Over $10, an article in the latest issue of People Style Watch magazine. I flipped to page 68, when, what do my wondering eyes should appear but a “wonderland of snowscape-inspired finds.” As my eyes scanned the page, I’m all, “that’s cute, that’s pretty, ooh…that’s pretty cute!” But then my gaze fell on the un-prettiest beauty product I’ve seen in, possibly, forever.
Lush’s Frothy The Snowman Bubble Bar looks like someone asphyxiated poor old Frothy with a plastic sack, then hacked off his head and tied the bag off with a bow. How sick is that? It’s the holidays, not Halloween, Lush. I mean, how can a brand be animal-friendly and cruelty-free and then go decapitating such a jolly happy soul?
If you think that’s twisted, just wait…it gets more disturbing. To use Frothy The Snowman Bubble Bar, take his head in your hands and squeeze. Then sprinkle his crushed skull in your bathtub and fill it up with water.
The upside? If being an accessory in Frothy’s demise leaves you feeling shameful, wash away those dirty thoughts with the vanilla-coconut scented suds.
