Down the Rabbit Hole Bubble Bar is yet another Lush Oxford Street, Easter exclusive.
Some of you however may have been lucky enough to pick one or two of these up from the Lush Kitchen last week. That particular batch sold out within minutes, if you managed to get just one I’d very much like to shake your hand as you’ve a good set of super, speedy fingers!
Prior to last weeks Kitchen release Down the Rabbit Hole Bubble Bar was only ever available from the Oxford Street store. I guess the sheer exclusiveness of this product was the catalyst that made the Kitchen batch sell out so very quickly.
Down the Rabbit Hole’s main ingredient is Brazilian sweet orange oil, this essential oil is very popular within Lush products. Not only does it smell delicious, it also has skin brightening properties. Its sweet tangy scent is the perfect pick-me-up should you find yourself down in the dumps.
The first thing that you notice about Down the Rabbit Hole Bubble Bar besides its uplifting scent is how very pleasing it is on the eye. The deep pink, summer orange and dazzling yellows that this product consists of all blend together beautifully. each swirl of colour compliments each other making it that little bit more eye catching than other products.
Based on Lewis Carroll’s much loved Alice in Wonderland stories, the rabbit hole is where Alice fell to end up in ‘Wonderland.’ When you look at it, the gentle swirl-design of this bubble bar does have a very hypnotic and wacky look about it…
Lush make so many attractive products that sometimes you can get a little overwhelmed. The thought of breaking up this gorgeous bubble bar made me a little sad, I very nearly didn’t. I however know that Lush pride themselves on the fact that their products are fresh so wanted to use this exclusive bubble bar in its prime.
In diameter the Down the Rabbit Hole Bubble Bar is similar to the super chunky bubble bar The Comforter. It however isn’t as thick, I’d say it’s probably about half of its size in depth.
Down the Rabbit Hole’s thinness in comparison to the chunky bubble bars that Lush have on offer mean that this bubble bar won’t stretch over as many baths as I had grown accustom to with the likes of Brightside and The comforter.
The Comforter bubble bar would make me 8 maybe 9 generously bubbled-bubble-baths.
After experimenting a couple of times with the Down the Rabbit Hole Bubble Bar I recommend that you use at least half of it per bath. Using a quarter of it left me with only a light blanket of bubbles and hardly any scent at all.
Included in Down the Rabbit Hole’s ingredients are various types of lustre making the bath water underneath the canopy of bubbles sparkle away.
I know some people think lustre is glitter, the mere mention of it being an ingredient within a cosmetic product makes some literally run for their lives. I am not sure how many times I have actually addressed this in my blog as people ask me about it all the time. ‘Lush glitter’ isn’t scary at all, it actually makes for a very pleasant, bathing experience. I feel as though I need to dedicate a paragraph like this to all of my lustre-infused-product reviews.
In my own words I would describe ‘lustre’ as cosmetic shimmer, it is very similar if not the same ingredient that you can find in various make up products such as bronzer.
I was so excited to try this product and by all means I enjoyed the bubble bath it created, I just wish its scent was a little more apparent. Looks wise this bubble bar is one of the prettiest that Lush have provided us. I however wouldn’t go out of my way to get more as I prefer the products with stronger scents.
What did you guys make of this bubble bar?
