Calavera Catrina is one of my favorite folklore images used in the colorful posters and parades marking the Day of the Dead, which takes place in Mexico on November 2. Calavaera means skull in Spanish and the image derives from an etching by artist Jose Guadalupe Posada that parodies the rich and fashionable.

Now, just in time for creating your own Day of the Dead alter, Lush Fresh Handmade Cosmetics introduces the Lady Catrina soap ($5.95) in the shape of the calavera’s hat. Part of the Lush Day of the Dead collection, the Lady Catrina soap is scented with a blend of lime oil and Mexican marigold petals, sometimes called “the flower of the dead.”

For a more explosive Day of the Dead experience, try Lush’s Calavera bath bomb ($5.95), again scented with lime and marigold petals.

The lineup also includes Calacas shower jellies ($4.95), inspired by the iconic sugar skulls that decorate ancestral alters across Mexico. Scented with lime and neroli, the jellies are infused with aloe vera to soften and soothe.
