Calling All ‘Nightmare Before Christmas’ Fans! Here’s Why You Need to Visit Basin Soon

This time of year brings about all things spooky! What does Fall mean to you? We can’t help but think about Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, a time to celebrate the Disney villains, cozy nights in with the Sanderson Sisters, watching Hocus Pocus – there’s just so much fun to be had!

It’s also that time of year to watch Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas again. This stop-motion animated musical produced by Tim Burton and directed by Henry Selick is known for its well-loved soundtrack that is written by Danny Elfman. It tells the story of Jack Skellington, whose singing voice is voiced by Danny Elfman, the King of Halloween Town, who stumbles across Christmas Town, whose ruler is Santa Claus. What’s even better about the Disney film is that it’s totally acceptable to continue to watch it right through into the Christmas season too. If you’re anything like us, we like to enjoy the Halloween movies during September and October, and once November 1 arrives, Christmas movies are our choice of viewing through November and December. After all, Christmas begins as the clock strikes midnight on November 1, right?!

There’s one exception to these film-watching rules, though… Seeing as Nightmare Before Christmas combines our two favorite seasons, it seems only right to be able to watch it from September and right through until Christmas. Are you the same?

Make sure to add Basin to your list of shopping destinations also, whether that be online or in-store. Let us explain why!

Basin Disney Collection

Since August 2021, Basin has released several different collections of products featuring favorite Disney characters. Originally, Disney Pals, including Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Daisy Duck, Goofy, and Pluto, featured lip balm and bath bomb flavors. The Disney Villains then followed with a bath bomb collection featuring Cruella De Vil, Ursula, Maleficent, and the Evil Queen. Since then, a Frozen (2013) inspired collection has been released, as well as a Disney Princess bath bomb collection.

And now, a brand new collection has been released, featuring characters from Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas. Available to buy in-store and online, you won’t want to miss out on these new products!

Sally Body Butter

Available to buy for $34.99, this special-edition body butter is Blackberry Nightshade scented, making it the perfect elixir for your skin. Cocoa butter is a key ingredient that is known to help with skin texture and tone, as well as moisturize and repair skin. This body butter is not only inspired by Sally, but it also comes in a beautifully designed tub that features Sally’s face on the lid. It’ll make for the perfect storage container once you have reached the end of your body butter supply.

This collection of shower bombs is sure to help you celebrate Halloween and Christmas at the same time. Shower bombs are perfect for anyone and everyone, whether you enjoy a shower or can’t enjoy a bath bomb as you don’t have access to a bathtub. All you need to do is place a shower bomb in the shower, out of the direct water spray, allowing the shower bombs to be used more than once. Before you know it, the therapeutic aromas will fill the air, helping you to relax, energize, and feel your body and mind uplifted. These could also be a great Christmas present idea for any Nightmare Before Christmas fans that you know!

Which of these products will you be adding to your shopping basket? Be sure to place your order soon so that you can celebrate the spooky season during bath time!
