Fun for all the Family Bubble Spinner from Lush

The Fun for all the Family Bubble Spinner is a limited edition bubble bar that was a part of Lush’s 2018 Father’s Day line. When Lush first released the bubble bar equivalent of a fidget spinner last year (the Bubble Spinner) I had no idea what a fidget spinner even was. Just in case you’re new to fidget and bubble spinners I’ll briefly explain the ins and outs below. A fidget spinner is a small toy that usually has two or three prongs arranged around a central bearing. They are designed to be spun by the fingers as a means of improving concentration and a reliever of stress.

The bubble bar equivalents of a fidget spinner, like Fun for all the Family do not however work in quite the same way as the toy fidget spinners – (the water from the tap is what essentially makes the bubble spinner, spin). Getting in on the fidget spinner craze has been a very clever move on Lush’s part and one that seems to have made a great impression on the bubble bath industry. Fun for all the Family is just one of the many bubble spinners Lush have created since the original bubble spinner was released back in August 2017. They just keep getting better and better.

What makes the Fun for all the Family bubble spinner unique to all of the others that have been released prior to it, is the fact that it has five prongs. This not only gives the bubble spinner a new star-like-shape but it also ensures that upon contact with the water running out of the tap, the bubble spinner will ALWAYS spin. Which is something that not all the others have been guaranteed to do (without a little help anyway.)

Jam packed with plentiful feel-good ingredients such as sweet orange and lime oils, the Fun for all the Family bubble spinner is the perfect pick-me-up product. Sharing its scent with the hugely popular limited edition bath bomb, Never Mind the Ballistics I couldn’t resist grabbing one to try. As soon as the Fun for all the Family bubble spinner is held under running tap water its cheerful scent fills your bathroom, it’s like fizzy sherbet sweets but so much better. Bubbles also start to appear very quickly while the bath water underneath them turns the most beautiful shade of blue.

What really impressed me about Fun for all the Family is how quickly it created copious amounts of fluffy, white bubbles, I didn’t need to hold it under the tap for very long at all. More than 60 seconds felt wasteful to me and I got at least 10 baths out of just one bubble spinner making it worth every single penny. Its scent lasts throughout your bath and my skin always felt well hydrated after getting out of the bath whenever I used it, this is very rare on my sensitive skin when it comes down to reusable bubble bars.

Another thing I noticed is how it has held its colour, every other Lush product that I have owned that is largely blue, are always the first to fade in colour. Examples of blue bubble bars that have lost their colour within a month or so are The Christmas Penguin and Bubbling Under. Fun for all the Family is however still very blue and I think my last one was purchased mid-June-time. Its scent although subtle, stays on your skin a good few hours after getting out of the bath too. For a reusable bubble bar Fun for all the Family really blew me away. Lush’s bubble spinners just keep getting better and better!

The Modfather Bubble Bar from Lush

Every last aspect of a Lush product is carefully picked and designed. Its scent, ingredients, shape and colours are all under special consideration. Every single part of a Lush product has a valid purpose for being there, they literally think and perfect every last detail.

When ever I get my hands on a brand new Lush product I like to delve a little into its history. I like to find out a little more about how and why the wonderful people at Lush came up with such a product.

This year Lush Cosmetics decided to make a line of Father’s Day products, this is the first year that they have done so. Lushie’s all over the world have welcomed this small range of new and exclusive products with open arms. After all, Lush release the most amazing Mother’s Day products so it’s only fair to let the Fathers of the world get in on the action too.

The Modfather Bubble Bar although very small sure has a lot of clout. Inspired by the Mods and Rockers of Britain’s 1960’s youth subcultures, Lush have clearly had a lot of fun coming up with it.

I’m not going to write an essay for you to read on Mods and Rockers, in all honesty I don’t really know much about them anyway. I can vaguely remember learning about them at school when I was 9 or 10 years old. My only real memory of it is that we watched a video recording of an old BBC documentary on the ‘TV with wheels’.

Our teacher for that year was truly awful, he was lazy and couldn’t ever engage the class, he took the fun out of everything and I know this is why I don’t remember a single thing he ever tried to teach us. 16 years later I am still really disappointed in him as I could really do with some Mod and Rocker knowledge right now…

The Modfather bubble bar isn’t very big at all. What it however lacks in size it well makes up for with its beautiful scent. Packed with Brazilian orange oil, the Modfather bubble bar has a super zingy and energising-summer-scent.

It’s perfect for anyone looking to add a spring to their step. It’s mood brightening, refreshing and tailor made to revive all of ones senses.

The only negative point I have on this bubble bar is how small it is. As a woman of 5 foot 2, I can appreciate that good things come in small packages. I am however always a little disappointed if I cannot use the same Lush bubble bar over 2 or 3 baths.

I think that I am maybe just a little bubble-greedy though. The first bubble bar I ever purchased from Lush was The Comforter, size-wise I was therefore spoilt rotten, from day one.

Using the whole of the Modfather bubble bar for one bath did make for an incredibly lavish bath, it was fit for a king, making it (in my opinion) worth every penny. The first time I tried it I did try to use only half of it. Half of it left me with good results but not as good as using the whole thing. Although a little pricey if used in just one bath, it was a bloody good bath that I’d love to have time and time again.

Crumbling a Modfather bubble bar under a running tap produces more than a copious amount of luxurious, soft white, fragrant citrus bubbles. I have grown quite fond of the scent and hope that Lush incorporate it into future Lush products too.

The picture above speaks for itself. Underneath the canopy of bubbles is beautiful, royal blue water. I have yet to come across a Lush product that leaves my bath water such a deep blue before. It’s such a lovely shade of blue, I could just lay in the water for hours.
