It’s always so exciting to get your hands on a brand new Lush product but there’s nothing quite like having one of your favourites return year in, year out. The Magic of Christmas Reusable Bubble Bar wand is definitely one of my all time favourite from the winter line.
If you’ve read any of my previous reviews you’ll know that I’m normally not the biggest fan of the reusable bubble bars. I feel as though they are more of a novelty product than anything else, I also find that the majority of them just aren’t as colourful or vibrant in use as the ordinary bubble bars are.
Lush put a lot of effort into making the reusable bubble bars look beautiful and desirable but in my personal opinion, Lush tend to relax a little with them in regards to how well they work as an actual bubble bar. The Magic of Christmas reusable bubble bar is however the exception to this, it creates just as many bubbles and the brightest of orange water giving the Brightside bubble bar (an ordinary bubble bar) a serious amount of competition.
Last year, (2016) Lush released 4 reusable bubble bars for their winter line, I can’t help but think that the Jester and Santasaurus reusable bubble bars didn’t make a return for 2017 because of how dull the bubble bars made the colour of the bath water.
The Magic of Christmas reusable bubble bar however never fails to return and it’s not hard to see why. For me, it ticks all of the boxes of things I look for in a bubble bar. It looks beautiful, smells fantastically moreish, creates mounds and mounds of fluffy white bubbles, all while turning your bath water a sparkly and warm shade of orange.
The thing that I like the most about the Magic of Christmas wand is that its stick is in fact a real cinnamon stick, it’s such a good idea. I love cinnamon so can never get enough of this bubble bar. You can use every last piece of this bubble bar, even the decorative ribbon and bell tied around it can be used again.
The Magic of Christmas reusable bubble bar creates a generous amounts of spicy-scented, fluffy white bubbles in no time at all. I can easily get 6 baths out of just the one bubble bar which makes it incredible value for money. To use it all you have to do is hold it under the tap like in the photograph above. Once you have your desired amount of bubbles you simply place it on the side so that it can dry, ready for you to use it again whenever you wish.
Decorated with cinnamon seeds and organic cloves the Magic of Christmas literally smells like my idea of heaven, I don’t think Christmas would ever be the same should Lush decide to retire this bubble bar. When the winter weather is dragging me down there is nothing better than a Magic of Christmas bath to lift me out of the darkest of winter blues. The cinnamon and clove packed ingredients work a treat on over worked and aching muscles as well as brightening up my tired and dull skin.
The Magic of Christmas also makes the bath water silky smooth, it soothes and nourishes my dry skin perfectly. My current favourite Lush cocktail that includes the Magic of Christmas reusable bubble bar is, Magic of Christmas, the Christmas Sweater bath bomb and Hot Toddy shower gel. They all mix so well together and are all brilliant products. Hot Toddy isn’t very easy to get now that the Lush Kitchen is in limbo but if you ever get a chance to grab a bottle on ebay etc, DO IT!
Overall I am completely besotted by this beautiful bubble bar, I always make sure I have stocked up on them before winter is through. I have actually had the privilege of making one of these by hand myself, I haven’t included a photo of my version because it was awful, It’s a lot harder to make Lush products than it looks!
