Gingerbread House Bubble Bar from Lush

gingerbread-house-bubble-bar-2Why Lush no longer release this as a staple Winter bubble bar I will never know.

I admit that I  throw the ‘favourite’ word around a lot when it comes to Lush, the Gingerbread House Bubble Bar is however truly one of my all time favourites and for so many fantastic reasons.

The scent of this bubble bar is delicious. As soon as the hot tap hits the bubble bar its spicy winter scent intensifies, if you thought the bubble bars fragrance was good in your hands just wait until it’s in your bath. As soon as it comes in contact with the tap your whole bathroom begins to smell like the most mouthwatering gingerbread biscuit, I have never come across a Lush product that smells more inviting.

I knew before I had even got into a Gingerbread House bubble bath that it was a very special product that would be more than beneficial for my tired mind and aching body.


I assume that a big reason as to why they don’t make this bubble bar into a permanent Winter fixture is because it takes quite a lot of work to hand make. The effort put into making it is all totally worth it though as it looks more than good enough to eat.

I’ve never wanted to eat a Lush product so much, this obviously isn’t advisable, I’m afraid you have to get  your sugar rush elsewhere… HOWEVER, if you’re on a diet after eating too much over Christmas, having a Gingerbread House bubble bath might just take the edge off of your cravings!

I’d go bankrupt if they brought this products scent out in other formats. I suffer with widespread, chronic pain and the Gingerbread House bubble bars ingredients are perfect for soothing my muscles.

The combination of ginger, lemon and cinnamon are great for lulling you into a more relaxed state of mind, while you lie back enjoying the relaxing scent, it also works its magic on you tired and achy muscles. I just can’t put into words how great it feels to slip yourself into a Gingerbread House bubble bath. Combined with the added heat of the bath water, a Gingerbread House bath is quite literally my idea of heaven.


The best news about this bubble bar is that a little amount goes a very long way. One bubble bar can be cut up and would easily last over 4 baths, all of which would have a more than generous amount of bubbles.

This bubble bar not only helps soothe your muscles and mind but also refreshes and brightens your skin. During the Winter my skin can become quite dry and sore, a soak in a Gingerbread House bubble bath however takes all of this away.

When I get out of the bath my skin feels soft, hydrated and the warming, sweet scent stays with me even hours and hours after getting out of the bath.


I don’t think I could ever get sick of this bubble bar, I am praying that Lush one day decide to bring its scent out in other formats as it is such a beautiful and warming scent that helps me relax within minutes of sinking into it.

There isn’t one bad thing I can say about the Gingerbread House bubble bar, well there’s maybe one thing… I can’t help but be confused as to why its scent is not used in any other products? I don’t think I could handle the excitement if they made a shower gel or bath bomb equivalent, bath time would never be the same again!

Pip Gift Set from Lush

I don’t normally buy the Lush gift sets, I however couldn’t resist picking up a few after I spotted them in Lush Oxford Street when I visited in October.

My favourite of what I could find was the Pip Gift Set. I just couldn’t resist this happy little penguin and his funky orange scarf!PIP Gift Set.png

Inside the Pip gift set is 1 Butterball bath bomb and 1 Luxury Lush Pud bath bomb.

Yes, buying the 2 bath bombs individually is slightly cheaper but I quite like the idea of presenting them in a knot wrap like this, it’s creative, different and sure to impress.

Not only does it look super cute but it also saves you some time and that’s something that everyone needs more of, especially at Christmas!

As well as saving you time, using a knot wrap instead of gift wrap helps the planet. I am marrying a site manager of a recycling center so I cannot escape this knowledge… I know there are different rules for different areas but where we live a very high percentage of the gift wrap used at Christmas just goes straight to landfill and that’s not good.

Using knot wraps as an alternative to wrapping paper is a great solution to help the planet. Knot wraps can be used time and time again. Tying them up may appear tricky but it is in fact very easy, there are hundreds of different ways of doing it, I learnt how to do them from watching Youtube tutorials.

If you aren’t any good at stuff like that and the Youtube tutorials still have you puzzled do not worry! – The Pip gift set comes ready wrapped and if you did want to try another for someone else the shop assistants at Lush are always more than happy to help you knot-wrap your product purchases!

As mentioned above the 2 bath bombs included in the Pip gift set are the Luxury Lush Pud bath bomb and the Butterball bath bomb.

To see the review on the Butterball bath bomb click here. Butterball is very similar to the Butterbear bath bomb but is sold all year round as opposed to the Butterbear bath bomb only being available in the winter months.

Overall I really like this gift set and I think it would make a very good present to someone who you want to turn into a Lushie or for a Lushie you already know of.
