Stranger Things x Merci Handy limited edition cosmetics collaboration launches

Updated: Dec 28, 2021

Merci Handy has released a limited edition handcare and bodycare range in collaboration with the Netflix Original hit sci-fi series, Stranger Things.

Launching on 6th November, the date in the series on which lead character Will Byers disappears, the selection includes out-of-this-world formulas, encased in bright, 1980s-themed packaging. While, in keeping with the Merci Handy brand values, all products are 100% vegan and PETA-certified cruelty-free. And, with 90% of ingredients coming from natural origin, Merci Handy products are all free from nasties such as paraben, phthalates, mineral oil, palm oil, paraffin, formaldehydes, silicones and triclosan.

Inspired by the intriguing world of the Upside Down, the range shows a different side of Merci Handy, moving away from the bright and bouncy, to a more mystical, cosmic collection. The limited-edition gift sets include:

Upside Down Hanger

Merci Handy’s signature 98% natural, moisturising hand cleansing gel, packaged in a metallic star, is inspired by the series’ iconic Starcourt Mall location.

Upside Down Set - Volume 1

The Upside Down gift sets consist of three products packaged in a box that resembles 1980s cassette tapes. Volume 1 contains a limited edition Merci Handy x Stranger Things hand cleansing gel and hand cream, alongside the ‘Love Holder’, a case for the hand gel. The Love Holder is designed to look like a walkie-talkie, which are used by many characters in the show to connect them to the parallel universe of the Upside Down.

Upside Down Set - Volume 2

The second of the cassette-inspired gift sets focuses on body care. Volume 2 includes a supernatural, colourful bath bomb, the limited edition Merci Handy x Stranger Things exfoliating bath soap, and, of course, the cult-favourite - limited edition hand cleansing gel.

Upside Down Fanny Pack

Find the entire collection bundled into this limited edition Merci Handy bum-bag, designed to be reminiscent of the 1980s style staple.

The full limited edition collection will be available on,, and the Upside Fanny Pack will also be available on

About the Founder

Merci Handy was founded by Louis Marty at the age of 23 when he set out to create the most unique and colourful hand gel one could possibly imagine - one that is fun to use and easy to transport - and so Merci Handy was born. Since then, Merci Handy has successfully replicated this unique approach to other care essentials, from toothpaste to deodorant, and more recently, bodycare and skincare. Today, Louis Marty continues to serve as CEO and Creative Director of Merci Handy and remains passionately committed to the brand’s mission of making the ordinary extraordinary as the brand expands internationally through Europe, USA, Australia, and Asia.
