Mean Green Mother from Outerspace Bubble Bar from Lush

The Mean Green Mother from Outerspace Bubble Bar was an exclusive product included in the October 2022’s Lush Kitchen subscription box. Inspired by the man-eating plant in the Little Shop of Horrors, the Mean Green Mother from Outerspace bubble bar fits right into the boxes chilling-Halloween-theme.

Going forward, I am now going to refer to the Mean Green Mother from Outerspace bubble bar as just Mean Green to save us both sometime. I do wonder if Lush give their products long names to not only make them stand out but to get on our nerves a little bit too. 😉

The Mean Green bubble bar is approximately 100g, for comparison purposes the bestselling Brightside bubble bar is 200g – twice its size. Yes, the Mean Green bubble bar may be on the smaller side but if I have learnt anything from the hundreds of Lush bubble bars that I have tried before now, size doesn’t dictate a bubble bars true bubble-potential…

The Mean Green bubble bar contains the following essential oils: lime, olibanum resinoid and neroli. It shares its scent with the Calacas shower gelMonsters’ Ball bath bomb and from this year’s Halloween line (2022) the Big Foot bath bomb.

Lush’s Calacas scent family is one of my all-time favourites, I can never get enough of it. Its lime led scent is both uplifting and zingy. Lush have combined oil of lime, neroli and olibanum to make the perfect pick-me-up scent. Bathing in a Mean Green bath will reinvigorate your mind, body and soul.

Some describe the Calacas scent as being very similar to the sweets, fruit pastilles. I adore its scent, Lush have yet to use it in a product I haven’t loved!

To use the Mean Green bubble bar, I put broken up pieces of it into a small sieve and let the running bath-water trickle over it. I find this the most effective way to use Lush’s single use bubble bars. This method is also the best way to ensure none of the bubble bar gets accidentally wasted and through trial and error, I have found that this method makes the most bubbles.

One of my favourite things about Lush’s bubble bars is that unlike their bath bombs, bubble bars can be spread out over several baths.

I got 2 adequately bubbled bubble baths out of just the one Mean Green bubble bar without it hindering the quality of it at all. HOWEVER, I think I could have easily spread the bubble bar out over 3 baths. It may be a small bubble bar but a little amount of it certainly goes a very long way!

Once the bubble bar pieces are put under the running tap, it doesn’t take very long at all for the blanket of fluffy white bubble to form. Underneath the blanket of bubbles the water turns a glorious bright green.

A Mean Green bubble bath leaves your skin feeling as soft as silk. After getting out of the bath its beautiful lime and neroli fragrance also lasts on your skin for the rest of the day. There’s no need to lotion up once you’re out of the bath either as it leaves your skin super-hydrated.

Overall, I am clearly head over heels in love with the Mean Green Mother from Outerspace bubble bar. I am a little confused as to why it didn’t make it into the actual Halloween range this year, it’s a crime that it was only available in the Lush Kitchen Subscription Box!

Cyclops Bubble Bar from Lush

The Cyclops Bubble Bar is a brand-new, limited-edition product from Lush’s 2022 Halloween line.

Living up to its name it of course has just one eye; This and its peculiar cone-shape make it a stand-out Halloween product that fits perfectly into Lush’s weird yet wonderful Halloween line!

The Cyclops bubble bar is approximately 100g, for comparison purposes the bestselling The Comforter bubble bar is 200g – twice its size. Yes, the Cyclops bubble bar may be on the smaller side, BUT if I’ve learnt anything from the hundreds of Lush products that I have tried, size doesn’t dictate the products quality.

The Cyclops bubble bar contains the following essential oils: buchu, litsea cubeba and sweet wild orange. Its scent is fairly new to Lush and is described as a ‘passion fruit’ fragrance.

It is delicious, one sniff leaves me craving a tropical cocktail.

The fruitiness of it really lifts my mood and helps me relax – holiday mode activated! It is quite a powerful fragrance in comparison to the more gentle scent of Bubble Lugosi (this years other new Halloween bubble bar) but it’s a good powerful, I always struggle to describe scents but Cyclops literally makes my mouth water.

To use the Cyclops bubble bar, I put broken up pieces of it and its single candy eye, into a sieve and let the running bath-water trickle over it. I find this the most effective way to use single use bubble bars. This method is also the best way to ensure none of the bubble bar gets accidentally wasted and through trial and error, I have found that this method makes the most bubbles.

One of my favourite things about Lush’s bubble bars is that unlike their bath bombs, bubble bars can be spread out over several baths. I got 2 adequately bubbled bubble baths out of just the one Cyclops bubble bar, using less didn’t hinder the quality of it at all. Thinking back I could have easily spread it out over 3 baths. It may be a small bubble bar but a little amount of it goes a very long way.

It doesn’t take long for the blanket of fluffy white bubble to form once you run Cyclops under the tap. Underneath the blanket of fluffy, white bubbles the water turns a bright and super vibrant pink.

A Cyclops bubble bath leaves your skin feeling like silk. Its captivatingly-fruity-scent also lasts on your skin for the rest of the day once you’ve got out of the bath.

Overall, I am so pleased that Lush released the Cyclops bubble bar, I’d go as far as to say it’s one of my favourites of the new bubble bars from this year.

I can see this bubble bar selling very well and I’d love to see the same scent carried out in other product formats in the not-so-distant future. Hint, hint Lush; I’d be over the moon with a bath bomb or shower gel equivalent!

Bubble Lugosi Bubble Bar from Lush


The Bubble Lugosi Bubble Bar is a brand-new, limited-edition product from Lush’s 2022 Halloween line. Designed to look just like a vampire, this glow-in-the-dark bubble bar was one of the first of this year’s Halloween products to catch my attention.

You may recognise the Bubble Lugosi bubble bars scent as it also features in one of Lush’s all-year-round products the Blackberry bath bomb. Bubble Lugosi is also not the first Halloween bubble bar to share its scent with the Blackberry bath bomb as it can also be found in the now-retired, Bewitched bubble bar from past Halloween lines.

The Bubble Lugosi bubble bar is approximately 100g so small in comparison to other bubble bars in its price range such as The Comforter – The Comforter is twice its size and the same price.

The Bubble Lugosi bubble bar contains bergamot and olibanum oils, a combination that has to be one of the most relaxing blends Lush have ever come up with. Anything with this bubble bars scent is a hit in my house. It’s fruity yet warm, to me, it is completely irresistible!

It brightens your mood while lulling you into a more relaxed state of mind, I find it particularly effective before bed, using it always helps me drift off to sleep much quicker. If you favour the products with a less-complicated scent, then Bubble Lugosi would be a great choice for you to try out.

As mentioned above, Bubble Lugosi glows in the dark – See above photo. While this doesn’t really make much difference in use; The bubbles glow very faintly but not enough for me to really notice it (this may differ depending on where your bathtub and bathroom lighting is) it does make bath time a little more interesting.

To use the Bubble Lugosi bubble bar, I put broken up pieces of it into a sieve and let the running bath-water trickle over it. I find this the most effective way to use single use bubble bars.

This method is also the best way to ensure none of the bubble bar gets accidentally wasted and through trial and error, I have found that this method makes the most bubbles.

One of my favourite things about Lush’s bubble bars is that unlike bath bombs, bubble bars can be spread out over several baths. You could get at least 3 adequately bubbled bubble baths out of just the one Bubble Lugosi bubble bar without it hindering the quality of it at all, making it good value for money.

It doesn’t take long for the blanket of fluffy white bubbles to form. Underneath the blanket of fluffy, white bubbles the water turns a blue-like-purple, the photo above does the colour of the water no justice at all.

A Bubble Lugosi bubble bath leaves your skin silky-smooth and well nourished. Its scent lasts on your skin for several hours after getting out of the bath too.

Overall, I am glad Lush released this. At first I wondered what the point was considering we’d already had a bubble bar with the same fragrance in past Halloween lines BUT it was actually really fun revisiting the scent in a slightly different way. I can see this bubble bar selling very well, especially with it being glow-in-the-dark!

The Easter Bunny Bubble Bar from Lush

The Easter Bunny Bubble Bar is a brand-new, limited-edition product from Lush’s 2022 Easter line. Designed to look like a superhero bunny, this all-gold bubble bar was one of the first of this year’s Easter products to catch my attention.

You may recognise The Easter Bunny bubble bars scent as it also features in one of Lush’s most popular Halloween products, the Sparkly Pumpkin.

The Easter Bunny bubble bar is approximately 130g so reasonably small in comparison to other bubble bars in its price range such as The Comforter, which, at the time of writing this review is only 50p more and 70g bigger.

The Easter Bunny bubble bar contains grapefruit, juniperberry and lime oils. Lush’s website describes The Easter Bunny bubble bath as an ‘eggciting citrus soak’.

The juniperberry in it warms you up and the grapefruit in it uplifts and brightens your mood. Its scent is a woody and gentle citrus blend. One thing I feel I must point out is that this bubbles bars scent wasn’t as strong as I’d have liked. If you favour the products with a more subtle scent, then The Easter Bunny would be a great choice for you.

To use the, The Easter Bunny bubble bar, I put broken up pieces of it into a sieve and let the running bath-water trickle over it. I find this the most effective way to use single use bubble bars. This method is also the best way to ensure none of the bubble bar gets accidentally wasted and through trial and error, I have found that this method makes the most bubbles.

The one thing I love about Lush’s bubble bars over their bath bombs is that they can be spread out over several baths. You could get 2 adequately bubbled bubble baths out of just the one Easter Bunny bubble bar although, I do recommend using the whole thing in one bath if you want to get the most out of its scent. What really lets down the, The Easter Bunny bubble bar is the weakness of its scent.

It doesn’t take long for the blanket of fluffy white bubble to form and a little goes a long way if you’re looking for just bubbles. Using more bubble bar will help the scent be somewhat stronger. To reiterate what I said earlier, I recommend using the whole thing to get the most out of this bubble bar, scent and bubble wise.

Underneath the blanket of fluffy, white bubbles the water turns a golden-yellow (the photo below does it no justice at all) it has the most spectacular golden shimmer dancing around it too.

An Easter Bunny bubble bath leaves your skin silky-smooth and well nourished. Its scent unfortunately doesn’t hang around on your skin for very long, I hope one day that Lush bring out a body lotion in its scent, after all we already have the body spray so it’s certainly doable.

Overall, I am glad Lush released this. As I’ve said, its scent could have been a little stronger but when used all at once it makes for a fantastic bath.

I hope Lush bring out more Sparkly Pumpkin/Easter Bunny scented products soon as it’s a scent I’d love to see carried on in to other product formats, a shower gel equivalent would be heavenly. Hint, hint Lush!

Besties Bubble Bar from Lush

The Besties Bubble Bar is a brand-new, limited edition, Lush product that is a proud, stand-out member of this years (2022) Mother’s Day line. It first became available in the middle of February 2022 and has proven very popular since its release.

The Besties bubble bar is designed to look like an adult and baby giraffe having a cuddle, can a bubble bar get any cuter? I think not…

This year’s Mother’s Day line is packed full of some of the cutest products Lush have ever created, there seems to be a bit of an animal theme going on and I can’t get enough of it!

Besties bubble bar is bright yellow with bright pink spots, its scent is a part of Lush’s Celebrate scent-family. The Celebrate scent is hugely popular and features in many Lush products, I believe the most recently released products that share its fragrance are the Golden Pudding bath bomb and Celebrate body spray.

Besties contains, Brazilian orange and lime oils. Its scent is warm, bubbly, and full of citrusy goodness. It literally smells of happiness. Even just a quick whiff of it always puts a smile on my face.

The scent seems to work in whatever product format Lush make it into. To this day, Lush have never released a Celebrate scented product that I haven’t liked.

The Besties bubble bar is 120g so a little bit smaller than the, The Comforter bubble bar. The one thing I love about Lush’s bubble bars over their bath bombs is that they can be spread out over several baths. You could easily get 3 adequately bubbled bubble baths out of just the one Besties bubble bar.

I know some people will use the whole bar in one bath and it’s all down to personal preference, I do however recommend spreading it out so that you get more for your money.

Spreading it out over 2 or 3 baths does not hinder how well it works bubble and scent wise either. A small amount of this bubble bar goes a very long way!

To use the Besties bubble bar, I put broken up pieces of it into a sieve and let the running bath-water trickle over it. I find this the most effective way to use single use bubble bars.

This method is also the best way to ensure none of the bubble bar gets accidentally wasted and through trial and error, I have found that this method makes the most bubbles.

It doesn’t take long for the blanket of fluffy white bubble to form, underneath is bright yellow, citrusy scented, silky-smooth bath water.


The scent and bubbles last throughout my whole time in the bath and the silky-smooth water leaves my skin feeling and appearing brighter. I wouldn’t say the Besties bubble bar is particularly moisturising, but it didn’t dry out my skin at all.

Overall I really enjoyed using the Besties bubble bar, its scent is perfect, and its design is one of the cutest I have seen from Lush. There’s just something about Lush products with faces! Besties was almost too cute to use but I can never resist using a Celebrate scented product!

I hope Besties comes back for Mother’s Day next year although I doubt it will as Lush are famous for making ‘one time’ products.

Kim the Carrot Bubble Bar from Lush

If like me you’ve been a Lush customer for quite some time, you’d know all about Lush’s past perfectly-innocently-shaped fruit and vegetable inspired Valentine’s Day products. 2022 has not only brought us a giant version of the Aubergine bath bomb but now we also have a Kim the Carrot Bubble Bar too.

Kim the Carrot is a carrot shaped bubble bar that appears to have legs. Yes, you read that correctly, it’s a carrot with LEGS! Never have I ever looked at a carrot and thought of it as a particularly romantic or ‘sexy’ vegetable but here we are with carrots in 2022’s Valentine’s Day line… You heard it here first, carrots are no longer exclusive to Lush’s Easter line.

The Kim the Carrot bubble bar is a fairly decent sized bubble bar at 120g (for comparison purposes The Comforter bubble bar, one of Lush’s largest is 200g) It contains a long list of ingredients; benzoin resinoid, vanilla absolute, fresh carrot juice and fresh ginger root.

Its scent is incredibly sweet, just like the bright pink candy sweets you get in sweet shops. If you told me that more than just vanilla was in this product, I wouldn’t believe you based on its scent alone.

The one thing I love about Lush’s bubble bars is that they can be spread out over several baths whereas bath bombs can only really be used in just the one bath. I was therefore pleased to find out that a very small amount of the Kim the Carrot bubble bar went a very long way.

To use the Kim the Carrot bubble bar, I put broken up pieces of it into a sieve and let the running bath-water trickle over it as the bath fills up. It’s a really soft, crumbly bubble bar making it very easy to break up.

I find the sieve method the most effective way to use single use bubble bars. It is also the best way to ensure that none of the bubble bar gets accidentally wasted. Through trial and error, I have discovered that using a bubble bar in this way ensures that you get the most bubbles too.

(Photo 4)

You could easily get 3 generously bubbled bubble baths out of just one Kim the Carrot. The bubbles begin to form very quickly and the water underneath the blanket of bubbles is just as bright orange as the water created by the Brightside bubble bar.

The water is smooth to the touch and the bubbles last throughout your whole soak. One thing I did notice after using the Kim the Carrot bubble bar is that it wasn’t as hydrating on the skin as other recently released Lush bubble bars have been. It didn’t dry my skin out at all, I just noticed it wasn’t as moisturising as I have grown accustomed to.

Overall, I enjoyed using the Kim the Carrot bubble bar, it isn’t my favourite from the Valentine’s Day line, but I am glad I tried it.

Apple Crumble Bubble Bar from Lush

The Apple Crumble Bubble Bar finally became available to purchase in the UK back in April 2021. Its initial release had been delayed several times before then and the wait for it felt like an eternity, so much so that I had started to believe that the UK weren’t ever going to get it… 

I’m a huge fan of all things apple so was very excited to get a hold of the apple-shaped bubble bar.

The Apple Crumble bubble bars scent is a brand-new Lush-scent-family (to me anyway). A lot of customers including myself assumed that the bubble bar shared its scent with the Once Upon a Time body spray, at first, I admit to being a little disappointed that it didn’t share a scent, the disappointment however evaporated away as soon as I finally got to give Apple Crumble a sniff!

The Apple Crumble bubble bar contains myrrh resinoid, orange flower absolute, fresh apple pulp, shea butter, cinnamon leaf oil and organic cocoa butter. Its scent is delicious, it smells just like freshly sliced apples sprinkled in cinnamon sugar.

After spending months looking at the Apple Crumble bubble bar on Lush customers outside of the UK’s Instagram accounts, I was very surprised with its size once I finally had it in my hands. 

At 200g each the Apple Crumble bubble bar is the exact same weight as the Brightside and the, The Comforter bubble bars.

The one thing I love about bubble bars is that they can be spread out over several baths while bath bombs can only really be used in just the one bath. I was therefore pleased to find out that a very little amount of the Apple Crumble bubble bar goes a ridiculously long way.

To use the Apple Crumble bubble bar, I put broken up pieces of it into a sieve and let the running bath-water trickle over it. I find this the most effective way to use single use bubble bars. This method is also the best way to ensure none of the bubble bar gets accidentally wasted and through trial and error, I have found that this method makes the most bubbles.

The first time I used the Apple Crumble bubble bar I decided to chuck half of one into a sieve, the bubbles began to grow very quickly, within just a few minutes I regretted using so much. It was like I’d stepped into my very own private foam party.

The water underneath the thick blanket of fluffy white bubbles is the deepest, most shimmery red colour I have seen created by a bubble bar from Lush in a very long time. It looks very similar to the beautiful waters created by the Poisson D’Avril bubble bar BUT Apple Crumble is so much silkier on your skin.

I don’t think my skin has ever felt so smooth after a bath before, there was no need to moisturise once I got out and the scent stayed on my skin for the rest of the day too.

Overall, I am super impressed with the Apple Crumble bubble bar. I am really looking forward to future products sharing its same delicious scent… I am also looking forward to reviewing the other fruit crumble bubble bars for you in the near future too!

Snow Fairy Roll Bubble Bar from Lush

The Snow Fairy Roll Bubble Bar has returned to Lush for yet another Winter. I can see it being a staple Winter product for years and years to come so thought I’d finally get my review on it published – better late than never!

Within the Lush Community the Snow Fairy scent dominates the festive period year-in-year-out and features in a variety of different product formats. Keeping on top of my reviews is like a full-time-job sometimes, hence this review going live well over a year since the bubble bars original release.

With the Snow Fairy Roll bubble bar selling so well last Winter, Lush decided to also bring it out in an extra-large version for Christmas 2021. The standard sized Snow Fairy Roll weighs approximately 200g while the super-sized version is approximately 1000g!

If you’ve read any of my previous product reviews on other Snow Fairy scented products such as the Snow Fairy shower gel or Snow Fairy bath bomb, you’d know I don’t tend to favour the sweeter scents. However, over the years I’ve warmed to the Snow Fairy scent somewhat. What really helps sell anything Snow Fairy to me is the fact all of the stock in its fragrance is my favourite colour, bright pink.

The standard sized Snow Fairy Roll bubble bars are the same size as the all-year-round bubble bar favourites, The Comforter and Brightside bubble bars. They are also made in the exact same way – 2 different coloured bubble bar mixtures are rolled together then chopped into separate bars ready to sell.

If you’d like to see them being made behind the scenes, be sure to check out @lushsneakypeeks on Instagram. It’s a fantastic account run by one of Lush’s most creative product-inventors. It’s by far the best insight into life at the Lush factory available on social media right now!

I’m usually not shy when it comes to being greedy with my bubble bars and I always overindulge but if I decided to be sensible with this bubble bar, I could easily get 5 maybe 6 generously bubbled baths out of just the one Snow Fairy Roll bubble bar. My favourite thing about all of the ‘Roll bubble bars’ is how far they go. They are definitely the most cost-effective Lush products available to date.

To use Lush bubble bars, I break them up and stick however many pieces I want into a sieve before running it under the tap. Copious amounts of bubbles begin to build up in the bath almost immediately.

If like me you’re not crazy on the Snow Fairy scent, I recommend using smaller amounts of the bubble bar chunks per bath. After all, it’s easy to add more product if you feel it needs it BUT is impossible to take any back if you’ve accidentally used too much. Sometimes, less is more!

The Snow Fairy Roll bubble bars scent is a sickly-sweet blend of candy and bubblegum making it quite an acquired taste. I wasn’t a huge fan of the scent at first, favouring the spicy products such as this year’s Cinnamon Roll bubble bar instead BUT after back-to-back Winters packed full of all-things-Snow-Fairy I now feel as if Christmas would no longer be Christmas without it.

While the bath runs, underneath the vastly growing blanket of bubbles the water turns a beautiful shade of bright pink with a silvery white coloured shimmer to it. The water is silky soft and despite its strong sweet scent I find myself very relaxed while soaking myself in its waters.

Being honest as always, the Snow Fairy Roll bubble bar isn’t my favourite bubble bar from Lush but the beautiful colour it turns the water makes my inner 4-year-old so very happy! As I mentioned at the start of this review, it’s a very popular product and I can see it coming back year after year in both its standard and super-sized versions. 😊

Alien Bubble Bar from Lush

The Alien Bubble Bar is yet another brand-new, product from Lush’s limited-edition 2021 Halloween line. Designed in the shape of a bright-green-alien-head with 2 big, jet-black eyes, it’s both cute and creepy.

I wouldn’t ordinarily match aliens up with Halloween but alien films scare me a lot more than films with serial killers, blood, and guts so I suppose they are definitely spooky enough to fit into the Halloween range…

Many customers including myself had hoped that the Alien bubble bar shared its scent with the Calacas shower gel (a much loved Halloween favourite) Alien however contains bergamot, litsea cubeba and benzoin resinoid.

Its scent is zesty but is not a part of the Calacas scent family. It’s a lot more zesty and much more potent, it reminds me of a mixture of the Avobath and Melusine bath bombs. If you’re looking for a bubble bar to give yourself a boost, look no further.

Alien fits snuggly in my hand, it’s roughly the same size as last year’s Halloween bubble bar, Bewitched. You can easily get 2 bubble baths out of the one bar. Or one super luxurious one!

To use the Alien bubble bar I recommend breaking it up and running it under the hot tap as your bath fills up. Some people just run it under the tap in their hand, others use it in a sieve. I find the sieve method a lot more effective as it stops any product from escaping, helping you reach its maximum bubble potential!

Once the bubble bar has gone from the sieve, another trick for extra bubbles is to use the shower head. While it’s on, holding the shower head close to the water, pointing it right into the bath for just a minute will help the amount of bubbles you have almost double.

The bubbles form very quickly as the tap runs over the bubble bar, underneath the blanket of bubbles the water turns a beautiful shade of neon green. The scent fills your bathroom leaving you feeling refreshed, uplifted, and ready to take on the day.

The bubbles from the Alien bubble bar last throughout your bath. Some bubble-bars’-bubbles don’t hang around in the same way, disappearing long before you pull the plug. Alien’s bubbles however stick around lasting longer in the bath than you do!

Once out of the bath its scent stays on your skin for the best part of the rest of the day – which is quite rare for zesty and citrusy products. My skin feels hydrated and also appears brighter too.

Overall, I am really impressed with the Alien bubble bar, I love how green it turns the water and how its scent wakes me up. While I don’t think I can ever forgive Lush for not bringing the Monsters’ Ball bath bomb back for Halloween, I’m glad they’ve given us this zesty bubble bar to fill part of the void that its absence has left.

Cinnamon Roll Bubble Bar from Lush

In 2021 Lush have released more new bubble bars than I can keep up with, none of them have however got me quite as excited as the Cinnamon Roll Bubble Bar. Cinnamon Roll is a part of 2021’s Winter line and is set to be released in stores and online at the end of September.

The Cinnamon Roll bubble bar is the same size as the, The Comforter, Brightside and Blue Skies and Fluffy White Clouds bubble bars, HUGE! One of the very first items that I ever bought from Lush was the, The Comforter bubble bar. I picked it because it was so big and because I loved the idea that it was a product that could be spread out over several baths as opposed to a bath bomb being just for one.

Cinnamon Roll’s larger size is not the only thing that it has in common with the 3 big bubble bars that I mentioned above, it’s also made in the same way. The red and gold bubble bar mixtures are rolled together hence the ‘roll’ in its name.

If you’d like to see some behind-the-scenes footage from the Lush Factory and for better insight on how Lush make their products be sure to check out @lushsneakypeeks on Instagram. (Watching the videos are much better than me trying to explain it…)

The Cinnamon Roll bubble bar contains, benzoin resinoid, cinnamon powder and the following essential oils; Cinnamon leaf, clove leaf, lime, Brazilian orange and patchouli. Its scent is very similar to the scent of cola bottle sweets but with a warm and sweet cinnamon-rich twang.

Another product with the same scent as the Cinnamon Roll bubble bar is the Hot Toddy shower gel. The Hot Toddy shower gel is yet another Winter product that I love, which is another reason as to why I was so excited about the release of the Cinnamon Roll bubble bar.

The ingredients in both the Cinnamon Roll bubble bar and Hot Toddy shower gel are super warming on the skin making them the perfect product to use for aches and pains, something I suffer with daily.

As I said earlier the Cinnamon Roll bubble bar is on the larger side, I’m not shy when it comes to being greedy with my bubble bars and I always overindulge but if I was being sensible, I could easily get 7 or 8 generously bubbled baths out of just the one Cinnamon Roll bubble bar. I am shocked at how far the Cinnamon Roll bubble bar goes.

To use I break up the Cinnamon Roll bubble bar and stick however many pieces I want into a sieve before running it under the tap. Copious amounts of bubbles begin to build up in the bath immediately, I have never experienced a bubble bar like it!

Underneath the vastly growing blanket of bubbles the water turns a dark, wine-red with a beautiful sparkly-golden shimmer.

When it comes down to my never-ending fight with widespread chronic pain, the Cinnamon Roll bubble bar is even better than when I use the Hot Toddy shower gel. I have never felt more relaxed, and my joints have never felt better soothed as they do when I’m marinating myself in a Cinnamon Roll bubble bath. It’s heaven in a bathtub!

The scent and its magical-warming-properties really hits you as soon as you sink yourself into its waters. It just seeps through to your muscles soothing both your body and state-of-mind.

With the Summer weather finally coming to an end and with Autumn already well underway I cannot get enough of the Cinnamon Roll bubble bar.

Do I recommend giving it a go? YES. I hope with all of my heart that Lush releases this bubble bar every Winter from now on. Sadly the Winter bubble bars are often only one hit wonders but the Cinnamon Roll bubble bar is exactly what has been missing in the Winter line for several years, Lush would be crazy to not make it a staple Winter product from here on out.
