When the Ladybird Bubble Bar was first released as a Mother’s Day product last year (2016) I was so, so excited. There’s just something so intriguing about the products that Lush make into little creatures.
It’s a very clever move on Lush’s account, giving a product eyes gives it some personality and because of this it makes them more desirable, buying a Ladybird bubble bar is like getting a new pet and the best kind of pet too as it doesn’t poop!
Unfortunately bubble bars are meant to be used so try not to get too attached, I promise you chopping or crumbling the Ladybird bubble bar up is well worth it. Once you’ve used it in a bath you will have no regrets in chopping up your new little buddy.
There is quite a few, none have however been quite as dinky and cute as the Ladybird bubble bar.
I couldn’t resist giving the Ladybird bubble bar a go even though I actually really hate ladybirds. Don’t shout at me, I have my reasons…
My other half and I moved into our new house just over 2 years ago and we have unfortunately had several huge ladybird invasions to deal with since. They love the old style windows, I’d do anything to get the windows changed but we have a listed house so the windows have to stay just as they were back in the Victorian times. *cries*
I used to adore ladybirds but after cleaning them out of my house for what seems like the millionth time, they kind of lose their ‘aww’ factor.
Ladybirds hate anything menthol and this is how we ward them off from our house now. Diffusing anything menthol in your house makes them move out, it is the kindest and most natural way to get rid of them. It doesn’t cause them or us any harm, we have a ladybird free house and not because we’ve squished them all, it’s a win, win situation.
Ironically the Ladybird bubble bar’s main ingredient is in fact PEPPERMINT. Once I knew that key piece of information I welcomed several bubble bar versions of Ladybird into my home with open arms.
Bye, bye real life ladybirds the big boys are moving in!
I only ever use a small amount of the Ladybird bubble bar as that’s all you need for a multitude of fluffy white bubbles.
The Ladybird Bubble Bar’s scent is a completely new one that I don’t recognise from any other Lush product. I’m still not 100% sure that I like it. By all means it is not an unpleasant scent, it’s just not one I’d normally go for.
The peppermint oil in it isn’t quite as strong as it is in the Intergalactic bath bomb. The geranium oil that is also in it softens the strength of the peppermint oil a great deal, the two mixed together give it a soft minty and musky scent.
Before using the Ladybird bubble bar I had never thought of floral and menthol complementing each other so well.
Underneath the canopy of soft, white bubbles is the most beautiful shade of berry-red water.
Overall the Ladybird bubble bar gave me a very good bath. I can’t see any real particular faults with it and I guess this is why it has come back in 2017 as a part of the Valentine’s range!
