Holiday shopping just got a little bit bubblier and a whole lot fizzier in Fort Worth, with the opening of Lush Fresh Handmade Cosmeticsvery first pop-up at The Shops at Clearfork.

Having debuted in the space between Burberry and Starbucks on Thursday, October 7, the store's limited run will last only until Saturday, January 15. That's just three joyful months to stock up on all of Lush's scent-sational bath bombs, bubble bars, body butters, and more best-selling products for bath and body.

For the uninitiated, U.K.-based Lush has been a trailblazer in the cosmetics industry since its founding in 1995. The inventor of the "bath bomb," the company also prides itself on creating vegan-friendly, cruelty-free products sold in minimal to no packaging; fighting animal testing; and ethical campaigning. 

But beyond all that good stuff, the whimsical products feel blissful and smell heavenly (as anyone who's walked by their store in a mall knows).

Froth up a relaxing bath with an $8.95 "Goddess" bath bomb or customize a gift basket of shower jellies, bath oils, power masks, and loofahs as a thoughtful and not-inexpensive gift. (We know a guy who got himself out of the doghouse with one of these, hint hint.) Subscriptions are even available.

The 1,035-square-foot Clearfork space packs in the brand's range of luxurious and ethical skincare, haircare, and bath products, as well as unique gifts filled with fragrant and effective products. Special collections for fall and winter include Halloween-themed Ectoplasm shower slime ($9.95-$19.95); Jilted Elf energizing body spray ($39.95); and The Art of Christmas Bathing bath bomb and bubble set ($159.95).

And there's more to come at the Fort Worth shop. "Beginning in November, a festive haven will be brought to life in-store incorporating Lush’s signature scent, Snow Fairy," says a release. "Shoppers can also create a magical and memorable moment with the interactive Snow Fairy selfie experience."

The Lush pop-up shop at Clearfork is at 5188 Monahans Ave., Fort Worth. Hours are 11 am-7 pm Monday-Thursday, 10 am-8 pm Friday-Saturday, and 12-6 pm Sunday.
