To celebrate the joy of bathing, Lush cosmetics launched LUSH X ONE PIECE, a line of bath bombs in collaboration with globally recognized Japanese anime ONE PIECE. This is Lush’s first ever licensing collaboration on a range of products.

Luffy, the main character of ONE PIECE, who dreams of becoming the ‘The King of the Pirates’: "I smell adventure!!!”. The collaboration features six products including four bath bombs inspired by the ‘Devil Fruit’, which in the story gives mysterious power at one bite. A bubble bar inspired by the straw hat of Luffy and a Knot Wrap (Lush’s reusable gift wrap) featuring the symbolic pirate flag of Luffy and his crew. Shop LUSH X ONE PIECE here.
