What a time to be alive, especially if Lush’s notoriously sweet, Winter-popular ‘Snow Fairy‘ scent is one of your favourites. I honestly didn’t think there were any more products that Lush could give the Snow Fairy treatment to. However here we are with the Candy Bubble Brush Reusable Bubble Bar. – I must admit that I’m not a huge Snow Fairy fan BUT it’s a pink product so of course I had to give it a go.
The 3 bubble brushes that are currently available in pink, blue and yellow, are all reusable bubble bars BUT with a twist. You use them just as you would any other reusable bubble bar, once you have the desired amount of bubbles in your bath, you are then supposed to dip the bubble bar in the bath water just as you would a paint brush. Next you are meant to glide the bubble brush back and forth over the foamy bubbles to create colourful, bubbly-bath-art. (See below photo).
Although my version of ‘Candy bubble brush bath art’ in the above photo isn’t art gallery worthy, if you do a quick search on Instagram almost immediately you will find copious amounts of photos that have done the most fantastic job of showcasing how wonderful and unique the bubble brushes can be.
Underneath the blanket of Candy scented bubbles is brilliant pink bath water. I often find that Lush reusable bubble bars aren’t as vibrant as the single use ones, the Candy bubble brush is however perfectly vibrant. Below is a photo of the Candy bubble brush being dipped into a small jar of water, obviously this isn’t anywhere near as much water as you’d have in your bath but all it took to create this bright pink water was 60 seconds of the bubble brush sat in it, just as pictured.
Out of the 3 bubble brushes currently available, Candy has been the one I have used the most purely because of its colour. Not only does the Candy bubble brush leave your bath water bright pink but also silky smooth too. Bathing in it for just 10 minutes leaves my skin feeling soft and well nourished. I am surprised that the scent lasts throughout the whole of the bath. Its scent could also be detected on my skin hours after getting out of the bath too, this is something that rarely happens with a reusable bubble bar.
The only thing that irritates me about the bubble brushes is that they are so hard to store without making a huge mess. I leave them to dry on a plastic mat before storing them and that seems to be the easiest and cleanest way that I have found to handle them in between uses (so far anyway.)
Much like the Snow Fairy body conditioner and Snow Fairy jelly bomb the Candy bubble brushes scent is sugar-sweet, anything Snow Fairy scented is always hugely popular with younger customers, however I am almost 30 and although it isn’t my favourite scent family, I do enjoy using the odd Snow Fairy fragranced product every now and again. After all, it wouldn’t be Winter without a bit of Snow Fairy something.
I don’t think that the bubble brushes target audience is specifically just children either, they have proven extremely popular with ALL ages, who doesn’t want to take 10 or 20 minutes out of their day to do something fun and relaxing? I love the bubble brushes because they get my creative juices flowing and also help me clock up those ‘me time’ minutes – and we can all relate to needing more me time! If you’re looking for something a little different and quirky then the new bubble brushes are a must have, I look forward to reviewing the other 2 for you in the near future. Watch this space!
