The bubble bars and bubbleroons at LUSH are my favourite bath products of theirs. If you’ve never tried them before, you have to pick a couple up next time you’re in LUSH. I recommend The Comforter and Brightside, you can slice them in chunks enough for 4 or 5 baths.
Depending on how bubbly you like your baths, you basically break a chunk off the bubble bars and run them under running water. It crumbles up and you end up with a mountain of lovely, soft bubbles. On a recent trip to the LUSH store, I treated myself to a few bubble bars. These are all limited edition so you might not have long to buy these until they’re gone again.
Unicorn Horn, £3.25:
As soon as I knew that they were releasing this, I knew I would want one! I got one for me and another for my little sis. It’s a really pretty bubble bar with the prettiest swirls of colours, and there are supposed to be candy stars on the outside but none of the Unicorn Horns at the store at visited had them so either they’ve fallen off or they didn’t put any on. Slightly disappointed about that. This is part of their Valentine’s Day collection so sadly, I think they have discontinued it (there are still some left over in the stores but once it’s gone, it’s gone). The lady at the shop told me that it has sold really well, so hopefully there are plans to bring it back next year or do something similar as part of the permanent range. I’d love to see more “unicorn” themed products – it’s so pretty and right up my street! Unicorn Horn is a creamy, lavendar scent.
Rose Bubble Bar, £3.95:
I saw this one last year and someone told me that it is inspired by the rose in Beauty And The Beast, and I would never have known because it doesn’t say on the label. I like knowing what a product or design is inspired by because the story behind it is what makes it special. Anyway, when I eventually decided to buy it, the Rose Bar wasn’t available (I didn’t realise it was limited edition at the time) so I didn’t hesitate in getting one which I think it is part of the Mother’s Day collection. It is a very small bubble bar and expensive for what it is and the size you’re getting, it will only be enough for one bath. It has a subtle sweet rose scent with a kick of citrus.
Bubblegrub Bubbleroon, £2.95:
Bubbleroons are similar to bubble bars, except bubbleroon are often contains shea butter in so it makes the bathwater creamy and milky. I couldn’t resist the Bubblegrub, I thought it looked really cute. I normally give everything a whiff when I’m at LUSH but for some reason, I just went on looks this time! I saw how adorable Bubblegrub was and decided to buy it, so I put him in my basket and that was that! It wasn’t until I got home that I really didn’t like the scent at all. It smells like a combination of stale cheap wine mixed, soil and rotten fruit. I feel bad being mean about something so cute but I regret buying it, he is one smelllyyly bug! The scent is too earthy, smokey and woody for me, it’s an extremely overpowering smell. Bubblegrub is made with vetivert and sandalwood, is part of the Mother’s Day range and cost £2.95 each. You can get two baths out of this one.
Have you tried any of these yet?
