Roller Bath Bomb from Lush

The Roller Bath Bomb was released back in February 2016 as an Oxford Street, Mother’s Day exclusive. My birthday is in February and in aid of it, I had booked to visit the flagship store as Oxford Street is quite literally the best Lush store in the universe.

I had, had a cheeky Synaesthesia treatment with all thanks to Lush and was eager to kill 2 birds with one stone by also doing a little bit of shopping after it, focusing on the Oxford Street exclusives from 2016’s Valentine’s and Mother’s Day range. Unfortunately the Roller bath bomb had been held back on its release and it was the only product I didn’t manage to get hold of that day.

I was born in London and had lived there for 24 years before moving to North Yorkshire for a quieter, better life.

If I had known about the flagship store opening almost directly opposite to where I once worked, I often wonder if I would have moved over 200 miles away? Luckily living so far away isn’t too much of a heartache as I have family and friends in London. My sister-in-law lives a short bus ride away from the flagship store and she goes above and beyond with her sister-in-law duties and picks me stuff up from there all the time. She’s a diamond, you should all be insanely jealous.

Of course while running my Lush errands she has also become a hardcore Lushie, which was inevitable as all Lush stores have a contagious atmosphere, especially Lush Oxford Street!

Roller Bath Bomb-2

Although I was a bit late to the Roller bath bomb party as it had sold out almost as soon as it was restocked several times, I finally got hold of some of my own and I have honestly never experienced a bath bomb quite like it.

The Roller bath bomb is completely unique to any other Lush bath bomb I have had before.

It is actually part bath bomb, part bath melt. The top half of Roller is dipped in a waxy-like purple melt, while it’s bottom half is the standard bath-bomb-formula that we are all used to getting from Lush.

At first I wasn’t sure of the Roller bath bomb. It looked and smelt fantastic, I am however not a fan of any bath products that are too oily because I am not steady on my feet. I already require assistance to get in and out of the bath and don’t want to over-complicate things.

Roller is however in my opinion, the perfect balance of both bath bomb and bath melt. It’s formula always leaves my skin the softest it has ever felt, I also didn’t feel like an over oiled engine part as I had feared.

It’s as if my skin soaked up all of the Roller’s goodness, conditioning my skin into the best I have ever seen or felt it.

The Roller bath bomb shares it’s scent with the Yummy Mummy Shower Cream that was also released earlier this year for Mother’s Day, it was however not an Oxford Street exclusive as it was available everywhere for a short period. I hope they bring it back next year as it is perfection in shower cream form. If you’d like to read my review on it click the link above.

The Yummy Mummy scent is a strawberry fans idea of heaven, the Roller bath bomb makes for a very delightful, strawberry-cream, bath time delicacy.

When the Roller bath bomb first hits the water it’s purple-melt-half floats just below the water surface, with it’s white side just above. it slowly froths up, spreading sweet and fruity scented foam around your bathtub.

It then slowly starts to spin, so that the purple side is now sometimes in vision. Slowly but surely the Roller bath bomb decorates your bath water with streaks of white, purple, blue, aqua green and pink swirls.

After some time the Roller bath bomb appears to break into two white pieces. Even though the Roller is now in half, it still carries on making the most gorgeous patterns of breathtaking colours.

I don’t normally include so many photographs in my Lush reviews but can you blame me for not wanting to miss a single moment of this precious bath bomb?




Whenever the Roller bath bomb becomes available to buy I strongly recommend you grab as many as you can. Actually scratch that… Don’t buy any at all, that way I can buy them all for myself!

Humpty Dumpty Bath Bomb from Lush

Humpty Dumpty Bath Bomb

‘HUMPTY DUMPTY FELT A SHARP WHACK, HUMPTY DUMPTY HEARD A GREAT CRACK. ALL THE KING’S HORSES AND ALL THE KING’S STAFF FOLLOWED SWEET HUMPTY STRAIGHT INTO THE BATH…’

The wording above isn’t quite the same as the nursery rhyme you will remember from your childhood BUT I think I might just like this Lush-version a little bit more. It could actually be written about me.

As a sufferer of EDS I’m always losing balance and getting ‘sharp whacks’, I also always hear ‘great cracks’… Which is mostly my joints moaning that I’ve moved them too fast or too far, ha, ha… As for always being in the bath, it’s no secret. I am a loud and proud bath addict, it’s how I keep productive 😉

With so much in common me and Humpty Dumpty where obviously meant to be!

The Humpty Dumpty bath bomb was a part of the 2016 Lush Easter range and was quite the size.

The idea behind the bigger Easter bath bombs is that you crack the egg (bath bomb) in half (just like you would an Easter egg) and inside is a surprise… A miniature bath bomb in the shape of a fried egg!

Humpty Dumpty Fried Egg

Once you can get to the fried egg insert you should have 3 pieces of bath bomb that you can share between 3 baths. That is unless you are greedy like me and just end up chucking them all in together…

All pieces of the Humpty Dumpty bath bomb are Honey I Washed the Kids scented. Honey I Washed the Kids is one of Lush’s most famous scents. It can be found in a number of their products all year through. The Honey I Washed My Hair shampoo bar is probably my favourite out of all of the every day range products that share its scent.

The Honey I Washed the Kids scent is very sweet, I can pick out honey, toffee and hints of gooey caramel… It however isn’t at all sickly. When I first got into Lush I was really worried that I wouldn’t like anything from the Honey I Washed the Kids family, I could see so many products sharing the scent and was concerned as most sweet scents I just can’t hack.

I have never had much of a sweet tooth and my preferred tastes are the same as my preferred scents. The Honey I Washed the Kids scent is however one of my favourites as it’s sweet but not sickly. I now always jump to try any of the Lush products associated with it.

img_4540

Although the Humpty Dumpty bath bomb is huge, it doesn’t take long to fizz away once it comes in to contact with your bath water. This is the reason I always end up putting the 3 separate pieces in all at once.

Comparing the Humpty Dumpty bath bomb to other Honey I Washed the Kids scented bath bombs, I do favour the alternatives. The Shoot for the Stars bath bomb appeals to me more as it’s a slow fizzer and its scents has more throw.

Humpty Dumpty is a lovely Easter bath bomb, I however only had 2 from this years range as I found it more of a novelty product than anything else. If it does come back next year I think I will buy it again but not for myself, I’d get it for my nieces and nephews as an alternative to a chocolate Easter Egg. I like to get them something a little bit different than everyone else and they all love bath time so it’s perfect for them as a treat.

Sakura Bath Bomb from Lush

Sakura Bath Bomb HS

When you first walk into a Lush shop I will admit that the Sakura Bath Bomb isn’t the first bath bomb that you see, overshadowed by other much brighter and bolder products people tend to miss it completely.

When I first got into Lush Sakura was a bath bomb that I initially ignored, I didn’t dislike it I was just drawn to the other bath bombs on offer such as Twilight and Phoenix Rising first.

It didn’t take me very long at all to get bitten by the Lush bug, I think out of all of the Lush products on offer bath bombs are probably still my favourite, when I say I’ve tried them all, I really do mean it. 😂

Sakura display @ OS

As you cans see from the photo above no Sakura bath bomb is quite the same. They of course all have the same ingredients in, looks wise they are however all unique.

Some are white all over with a few splashes of pink, some have a small sprinkling of salt on, others are even heavily speckled with pink and/or green. They do look fantastically odd all placed together!

The Sakura bath bomb is Japanese inspired, based on the beautiful cherry blossom trees it is designed to evoke the burst of optimism that the first sign of spring brings.

When I was little we had the most beautiful cherry blossom tree in our garden, I used to love seeing our cherry blossom tree bloom with beautiful light pink flowers. I distinctly remember being beside myself with anger and sadness when a tree surgeon came over to ‘trim’ our cherry blossom tree.

I think I was about 4 years old as my paternal nan was present. “YOU ARE KILLING MY TREE! YOUR ARE HORRIBLE! LEAVE MY TREE ALONE!” I screamed at him through the window, hiccups, snot and sobs galore… My family OF COURSE thinks this whole debacle is hilarious to this day, and they wonder why I grew into an anxious adult…

13307230_1793968897498997_1559614977748674466_n.jpg

The Sakura bath bomb has calming properties which actually happen to come in handy for when I am feeling anxious.

If you have a heavy day ahead the Sakura bath bomb makes for a fantastic morning bath-time treat. It always helps clear my head of stress and worries leaving me in a much more positive state of mind, I feel more able to face the next 24 hours. #YouveGotThis

13239274_1793968904165663_4519552436518173029_n

The Sakura bath bomb is quite a fast fizzer in comparison to others of its size like the Fizzbanger or the Frozen bath bomb. As soon as it is placed in to the water the  water softens because of the sea salt, the beautiful Sakura scent also hits you.

When looking at Sakura’s ingredients list I imagined it to be quite a fruity product, the mimosa and jasmine within it however dominates the lemon oil and orange flower absolute. Once out of the bath the scent stays with you for the whole day. It has a very light and refreshing floral scent. Despite this I would still class the Sakura as a citrusy product – Although, if you’re looking for a dominantly strong citrus bath bomb, you are probably better off grabbing something else.

The lemon oil and orange flower absolute may not be easily detectable by scent within the Sakura bath bomb, their magical uplifting properties however shine through when you spring out of the bath cheerier than when you got in.

13307389_1794013687494518_6337412345697995574_n

If you prefer the more gentle bath bombs, Sakura is a good one to go for. Once it has fully dissolved you are left with a small amount of soft pink and white bubbles, perfect for dry and tired skin.

I know quite a lot of people go for a bath bomb purely for a colourful and artistic bath, although Sakura is rather dull in comparison to other more colourful bath bombs, I still think it’s worthy of its staple product status, I cannot recommend it enough! 😊

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.png

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…

13239959_1793001190929101_53530560778391851_n

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.

13265912_1793001197595767_8923478910592145458_n.png

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.

13307460_1793210717574815_1910141067706152291_n.png

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.

13267730_1793004130928807_7333523150550270320_n.png

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.

Fizzbanger Bath Bomb from Lush

fizzbanger bath bomb

I generally thought that I had already written and published a Fizzbanger Bath Bomb review back when I very first started this blog, I realised a few weeks ago that I had in fact missed the review completely, so here it is…

The Fizzbanger is a very popular Lush bath bomb and it is one of my all time favourites. It is a staple Lush product available all year through, both online and in store (at the time of its review). If you look through my Instagram account you can see that I’ve used it more times than I could probably count. It’s literally so good, I think it might be my 2nd or third most used Lush bath bomb.

Yes the Fizzbanger bath bomb is in comparison to others, quite plain. As always though, it’s what is inside the bath bomb that counts!

When you first pick the Fizzbanger up you can see that its exterior is all one colour, a very bright yellow. Up against the likes of heavily decorated, stand out bath bombs such as Frozen or Guardian of the Forest it can sometimes be over-shadowed.

img_0638

It is not until you place the Fizzbanger bath bomb in to your bath water that you notice its true potential. It is described as ‘a Catherine wheel of a bath bomb’ because it changes colour as it slowly fizzes away.

Created to have individual scented layers the Fizzbanger is a feast for your nose as well as your skin. Everyone seems to think that the Fizzbanger is primarily a citrus lemon scent, I can see why people think this but the scent I always pick up is apple pie sprinkled with cinnamon sugar, MY WEAKNESS. I just can’t get enough of it both in the bath and as a yummy dessert drowning in custard.

At first the Fizzbanger bath bomb creates a mound of yellow foam, it has often been described as resembling a nuclear explosion. This description is actually a very good one as visually that is exactly what it looks like.

img_1636

Once the yellow, foamy nuclear explosion spreads itself around the bath a fleck of the Fizzbangers blue interior can be seen. It slowly spins creating blue and yellow lines until the middle of the bath bomb reveals itself.

img_1633

Inside is a BANG surprise similar to the hidden paper insert of the Blackberry bath bomb.

At this point you can also hear the popping candy within Fizzbanger reacting with the water. Petitgrain oil (the supposed primary citrus scent that I think is completely masked by the cinnamon and cooked apple scent) makes Fizzbanger a good choice of a bath partner if you’re in need of a pick-me-up.

Petitgrain oil is used within aromatherapy through out the world because of its calming properties, it helps reduce the feeling of anxiety and put alongside ylang ylang and cinnamon leaf oil makes the Fizzbanger bath bomb a truly joyful and relaxing bath time treat.

fizzbangeroK

As the blue interior begins to show, the Fizzbanger bath bomb starts to spin making the most beautiful swirly blue and yellow patterns. It moves so quickly, it’s almost impossible to get a clear shot of.

fizzbanger3

At the end you are left with yellow and blue bubbles sitting on the surface of your bath water. Underneath is the most striking, electric green water, infused with skin softening essential oils that are relaxing for mind, body and soul.

I love to use a Fizzbanger bath bomb during the day as I find it really awakens my senses if I’ve had a restless night before hand.

I was actually trolled a couple of years ago on Facebook when I mentioned that Fizzbanger was a good day time bomb. Madness I know, especially with all that’s wrong in the world right now. It just goes to show that not everyone knows the benefits of each essential oil.

If every bath bomb’s ingredients put you to sleep they wouldn’t be as interesting to use. It was more of a personal attack to be honest, all I do all day is bathe you see, I’m SUPER ‘produtive’ like that 😉 Having been diagnosed with 2 conditions that have left me registered as disabled, using hot bath water to help ease the pain, is just so cheeky of me! – Lush baths have helped me no end, if I need a boost to get through the rest of the day Fizzbanger is my go to bath bomb.

Its scent is to die for and the visual theatrics of it while it fizzles away is more than spectacular. I love how Lush makes it possible for effortless art to be created in your bath tub. When it comes down to a Fizzbanger bath, I cannot resist taking a few photos every time I use it, it’s just so, so beautiful.

Mumkin Bubble Bar from Lush

mumkin bubble bar

The Mumkin Bubble Bar is hands down one of the cutest Lush products to date. It was last available in the Lush Kitchen back in March and before that December 2015. The Mumkin bubble bar pictured above is the one I ordered back in December last year. I am obviously very behind on my product reviews as it is now May 2016, Sorry! My excuse is that you can’t rush perfection. *wink, wink!*

To be completely honest with you all, I am literally so overwhelmed by all of the amazing Lush products that have been available over the last 18 or so months, I just simply can’t keep up.

13220811_1788069881422232_3610358370230508340_n

The first question that springs to mind when people first come across a Mumkin bubble bar is ‘What’s it supposed to be?’ I talk a lot in my sleep and last night I apparently told my fiancé that a ‘Mumkin is like a pumpkin but nice.’ .Hearing that, I couldn’t help but want to do my Mumkin bubble bar review today. It was obviously meant to be.

A Mumkin isn’t anything like what I described while asleep. Lush in fact describe it as an unknown, friendly, cute and curious creature. With its big brown, dairy-free chocolate chip eyes how can you resist? Decorated with a yellow star on its deep pink head, a green leaf and a marshmallow-like stalk, the Mumkin bubble bar is more than unique.

In a way I get a little sad when Lush make their products into little creatures, it’s easy to break up and work your way through a bubble bar such as the Brightside one. When the bubble bar has eyes however, my inner child wakes up and doesn’t want to mash him up at all, ‘Mum, can we keep him?’

My inner child soon disappeared when I first smelt the Mumkin bubble bar, I didn’t care that it had eyes I just had to get it into the bath!

MUMKIN REAL

The Mumkin bubble bar has a floral bergamot and gentle raspberry scent. I can’t actually think of another Lush product that even has a similar scent. On paper the Mumkin bubble bar sounds as if it would be very similar to the Rose Jam scent, it is however nothing like Rose Jam. Mumkin has a soft zest that mixes perfectly with its ingredients. Bergamot, Sicilian lemon and violet leaf oils blend so beautifully together, I can only hope that Lush use the Mumkin’s scent in future alternative products such as a Mumkin shower gel, solid shampoo bar or even a bath bomb.

mumkinreal2

The Mumkin bubble bar creates copious amounts of silky-smooth bubbles, its unique aroma gently, intensifies as the bubbles multiply. Buried underneath the canopy of the fluffy white bubbles you will find warming-orange-tinted water. I always use a sieve for my bubble bars as unfortunately I don’t have a mixed tap. I have the choice of a scolding hot tap or a freezing cold one.

In the sieve I like to run it under the hot tap as I feel that makes the most bubbles. I however find that not all bubble bars work in the same way. Some work best in a sieve if crumbled up (as above) where as others work better in a sieve in chunks. In regards to the Mumkin bubble bar, after much trial and error I’d probably advise you to sieve it in chunks. I found that crumbling it up weakened its beautiful scent somewhat.

13221681_1788066874755866_8274762313331653753_n

As for the Mumkin’s bubble bars ability to freshen up my tired and often dehydrated skin, I wholeheartedly recommend it. Not only is my skin soft and hydrated, it also feels refreshed and ready to face the rest of the day.

I really hope that Lush Cosmetics use the Mumkin’s scent in alternative future products, ever since I first tried the Mumkin bubble bar I haven’t been able to stop eating raspberries. I fear that if I don’t stop eating them soon I will turn into a Mumkin!

Fluffy Egg Bath Bomb from Lush

Fluffy Egg Bath Bomb.pngIt’s crazy to think that Easter 2016 has already been and gone, the first 5 or so months of the year normally creep past making Spring and Summer appear to be just a myth… What feels like 10 minutes after new years eve is now May the 5th!? Better late than never, here is my review on the beautiful florally decorated, hot-pink, egg shaped bath bomb called the Fluffy Egg!

Sharing its scent with the much loved Christmas shower gel Snow Fairy, Fluffy Egg has always proved very popular with Lush fans, coming back as an Easter exclusive every year since its original release. If you haven’t experienced the Snow Fairy scent before, it’s a very sickly-sweet smell, think bubblegum, oodles of sugar and candy floss galore.

I am going to admit that I am one of the very few people that doesn’t get ridiculously excited about the Snow Fairy scent. It’s not at all unpleasant, in fact its a very likeable scent. I however have never had much of a sweet tooth so it’s never going to be my go to product. If I however was faced with the choice of a chocolate Easter egg or this Fluffy Egg bath bomb, I’d pick the bath bomb every time.


Upon hitting the water Fluffy Egg starts to fizzle away ferociously. Floating just beneath the surface of the water, Fluffy Egg immediately starts to change your bath water into a sea of pink magic. Although Fluffy Egg is a very fast fizzer its scent stays with you through out the whole of your bath.

Not only does Fluffy Egg’s scent stay with you right up until the last drop of bath water goes down the plug hole, it also lingers on your skin for the best part of the day after getting out. I wouldn’t say that this bath bomb was particularly moisturising.

Most Lush bath bombs hydrate my skin so much so that I do not have to moisturise myself after. With Fluffy Egg I however found my skin a little dry after I got out of the bath. I just wish I had a Snow Fairy scented body lotion as I hate the idea of masking its scent with another product entirely.

Luckily, since first writing this review in May 2016, Lush have blessed us all with a Snow Fairy body conditioner ( first released as a part of Lush’s 2017 Winter line). Although it’s not quite the same as a body lotion, it does a very similar job and it shares the same scent  as Fluffy so there’s not two different scents masking one of the other.

Fluffy Egg as I said above is a very quick fizzer, the quick fizzers sometimes dissolve away so fast that you don’t get to appreciate some of the patterns a bath bomb can make.

Although the pretty bath art made by the Fluffy Egg bath bomb is nowhere on par to the likes of many other bath bombs, I do love the colour pink so I can’t complain. Sometimes less is more.

I wish they did this bath bomb in a blue colour too. I know my nieces and nephews would LOVE to use these mini egg bath bombs but the boys would never speak to me again if I got them a pink present… So ungrateful! 😉

Overall I think Fluffy Egg is a great addition to Lush’s Easter line and I look forward to hopefully seeing it again in 2017.

Down the Rabbit Hole Bubble Bar from Lush

down the rabbit hole bubble bar

Down the Rabbit Hole Bubble Bar is yet another Lush Oxford Street, Easter exclusive.

Some of you however may have been lucky enough to pick one or two of these up from the Lush Kitchen last week.  That particular batch sold out within minutes, if you managed to get just one I’d very much like to shake your hand as you’ve a good set of super, speedy fingers!

Prior to last weeks Kitchen release Down the Rabbit Hole Bubble Bar was only ever available from the Oxford Street store.  I guess the sheer exclusiveness of this product was the catalyst that made the Kitchen batch sell out so very quickly.

On paper the Down the Rabbit Hole Bubble Bar sounds amazing, being a HUGE fan of anything remotely citrusy I just had to check this bubble bar out before Easter 2016 came to an end.

Down the Rabbit Hole’s main ingredient is Brazilian sweet orange oil, this essential oil is very popular within Lush products.  Not only does it smell delicious, it also has skin brightening properties.  Its sweet tangy scent is the perfect pick-me-up should you find yourself down in the dumps.

The first thing that you notice about Down the Rabbit Hole Bubble Bar besides its uplifting scent is how very pleasing it is on the eye.  The deep pink, summer orange and dazzling yellows that this product consists of all blend together beautifully.  each swirl of colour compliments each other making it that little bit more eye catching than other products.

Based on Lewis Carroll’s much loved Alice in Wonderland stories, the rabbit hole is where Alice fell to end up in ‘Wonderland.’ When you look at it, the gentle swirl-design of this bubble bar does have a very hypnotic and wacky look about it…

Lush make so many attractive products that sometimes you can get a little overwhelmed.  The thought of breaking up this gorgeous bubble bar made me a little sad, I very nearly didn’t.  I however know that Lush pride themselves on the fact that their products are fresh so wanted to use this exclusive bubble bar in its prime.

In diameter the Down the Rabbit Hole Bubble Bar is similar to the super chunky bubble bar The Comforter.  It however isn’t as thick, I’d say it’s probably about half of its size in depth.

Down the Rabbit Hole’s thinness in comparison to the chunky bubble bars that Lush have on offer mean that this bubble bar won’t stretch over as many baths as I had grown accustom to with the likes of Brightside and The comforter.

The Comforter bubble bar would make me 8 maybe 9 generously bubbled-bubble-baths.

After experimenting a couple of times with the Down the Rabbit Hole Bubble Bar I recommend that you use at least half of it per bath. Using a quarter of it left me with only a light blanket of bubbles and hardly any scent at all.

Included in Down the Rabbit Hole’s ingredients are various types of lustre making the bath water underneath the canopy of bubbles sparkle away.

I know some people think lustre is glitter, the mere mention of it being an ingredient within a cosmetic product makes some literally run for their lives.  I am not sure how many times I have actually addressed this in my blog as people ask me about it all the time.  ‘Lush glitter’ isn’t scary at all, it actually makes for a very pleasant, bathing experience.  I feel as though I need to dedicate a paragraph like this to all of my lustre-infused-product reviews.

In my own words I would describe ‘lustre’ as cosmetic shimmer, it is very similar if not the same ingredient that you can find in various make up products such as bronzer.

I was so excited to try this product and by all means I enjoyed the bubble bath it created, I just wish its scent was a little more apparent.  Looks wise this bubble bar is one of the prettiest that Lush have provided us.  I however wouldn’t go out of my way to get more as I prefer the products with stronger scents.

What did you guys make of this bubble bar?

Tweet Bubble Bar from Lush

Tweet Bubble Bar.png

I managed to get hold of this Oxford Street 2016 Easter exclusive thanks to my sis-in-law who is literally my Lush lifeline, she’s an amazing personal shopper to have, you should all be very, very jealous.  Sending her on all of my Oxford Street errands has accidentally got her hooked on Lush Cosmetics too, whoops! I can’t take full credit though as lets face it, every single product in Lush sells itself, going into the shop, picking things up to sniff, touch and learn more about it is all part of the wonderful and very addictive Lush experience.

This Easter (2016), Lush Oxford Street have a brand new, slightly odd looking yet perfectly charming store exclusive, the Tweet Bubble Bar.

All Lush products are handmade, it is however not until a product like the Tweet bubble bar is released that you get to really appreciate this. Although each Tweet bubble bar weighs the same, (meaning you get the same amount of product in each) no two look quite the same. For someone like me who has an overactive imagination this personal and individual touch gives each Tweet chick its very own personality. Although the lack of consistency look-wise will bother some, I feel it’s all part of Lush’s charm.

 
Tweet bubble bar like quite a few of the recent Lush releases is another citrus scented product. It is very similar to the Sunflower bubble Bar that was also an Oxford Street exclusive earlier this year.

Packed with plenty of tangerine oil, Tweet is a bubble bar that will refresh and lift your mood whatever the weather. Within aromatherapy tangerine oil is used to relieve stress and is also said to help with insomnia. As an ex(ish) insomniac I can honestly say that since using Lush products before bed I have noticed such a positive difference in my sleep pattern. Although I am not completely cured I now find it so much easier to drift off to sleep, getting that extra few hours of sleep in comparison to none at all is a god send.


I broke my first Tweet bubble bar into two. This amount made copious amount of soft, citrus-sweet bubbles. In hindsight I wish I would have spread the Tweet bar over 3 baths as it is more than capable of doing so.

Spread out over 2 baths Tweet more than adequately met my bathing needs. The only negative thought I have of it is that I just always get a little frustrated when a really good bubble bar isn’t the same size as for example the, The Comforter bubble bar. I’m just a greedy guts like that… This point is of course more of a reflection on me than Tweet!

My skin, dry and feeling a little more sensitive than normal due to the increase in amount of hydro sessions I have had to put my body through felt instantly soothed.

I spent a little bit longer in this Tweet bath than I would normally do, I was just so very relaxed.

Several hours after getting out of a Tweet bath my skin is still beautifully hydrated and the scent of the Tweet bubble bar is still very prominent on my skin. I wish I had a few more of these in my personal Lush stash as they really are such a good Lush product.

I hope they come back for Easter 2017!
