Stranger Things-inspired Bath Salts
As you ponder the latest Upside Down theories, do it in the tub with these Stranger Things inspired Bath Salts ($7). There are three scents to choose from, including He Likes It Cold, which is described as "a minty bath that will leave you tingly...kind of like being possessed by a mind flayer." Then there is Frozen Waffles, which has the scent of "breakfast (and lunch and dinner) at the sheriff' cabin." Yum? And finally, try Hawkins Forest, which is what the creator of these salts imagines it smells like as you ride your bike along the perimeter of a secret government lab.
El's Waffles Lip Balm Stranger Things
Leggo my . . . El's Waffles Lip Balm Stranger Things ($4). These cruelty-free lip balms are said to smell like fresh, warm waffles drizzled in buttery maple syrup. Plus, they only have eight natural, nourishing ingredients — soybean oil, beeswax, sunflower oil, cocoa butter, shea butter, Vitamin E, aloe vera gel, and flavor oil — so you know they will feel fantastic on chapped lips!
Stranger Things Christmas Lights Cosmetic Bag
Pack your home-for-the-holidays stash in this kitschy Stranger Things Christmas Lights Cosmetic Bag ($11), inspired by the famous holiday lights from season one. The zippered pouch is made of durable polyester and lined on the inside.
Stranger Things-Inspired Mini Bath Bomb Set
The three pieces in the Stranger Things Inspired Mini Bath Bomb Set ($8) are made from 100 percent pure essential oils, but that's not what makes us seriously obsessed with them. Each one gives a nod to a different Stranger Things theme, including The Eggo, a vanilla and orange oil bath bomb influenced by Eleven's favorite food. The Message, scented with lavender and eucalyptus oil, reminds us of how Will contacted his mother from the Upside Down. And The Nose Bleed is splattered with red coloring (not something — um — else). It is a fragrance of lovely lemon and rose — even though it is inspired by nose-bleeding.
Stranger Things The Upside Down Sugar Scrub
This may be our favorite of the bunch, because the writing on the jar is . . . upside down! The Stranger Things The Upside Down Sugar Scrub ($15) features a gray and blue whipped formula swirled together with midnight blue glitter on top. Plus, there's a waffle fragrance.
The Upside Down Nail Polish
This nontoxic The Upside Down Nail Polish ($10) has magical powers. It's a color-shifting hue featuring a tawny brown base and cool metallic glimmer. Layer it over a darker lacquer, and it morphs into a shimmery green shade. Just like Will and Eleven, this polish can "travel" between realms.
Suburban Rebel Stranger Things-Inspired Lip Gloss
Nancy Wheeler is the muse behind the Suburban Rebel Stranger Things Inspired Lip Gloss ($3). It's handmade with honey and honeysuckle to provide a sweet lilac shimmer.
