Jester Reusable Bubble Bar from Lush

jester-reusable-bubble-bar

There’s nothing I like more than a fruity Lush product. Jester Reusable Bubble Bar is therefore right up my street. Its scent is very similar if not almost the same as the Brightside Bubble Bar. It is rich with all of the best citrus ingredients making it a sharp, zesty and refreshing bath time treat.

Reusable bubble bars are slightly different to the normal bubble bars such as, The Christmas Penguin or Ultraviolet. With the normal bubble bars you’d break them up and run individual pieces under a running tap to produce bubbles.

A lot of people like the Lush bubble bars because of this. It’s nice to have a bath product that you can spread out over several baths rather than just  the one.

Having a reusable bubble bar brings a whole new meaning to making one bath product stretch over several baths. You don’t have to break a reusable bubble bar up, you simply run it under the tap, (as shown below) until you have the desired amount of bubbles in your bubble bath.

Once you have the desired amount of bubbles in your bath you simply put the reusable bubble bar somewhere it can dry off. I like to leave mine in my bath rack, I find that storing it like this between uses ensures that the bubble bar dries off evenly, making it last longer.

Out of just the one Jester bubble bar, I can easily get 5 generously bubbled bubble baths.

Not only does the Jester produce copious amounts of bubbles, it also turns your bath water a bright and magnificent orange colour.

Jester makes the water feel so much smoother, when I get out of the bath I can really notice it on my skin. It makes my skin silky soft and I also notice that it appears brighter too. It is the perfect product to perk you up if you find yourself slipping into the winter blues.

The Jester reusable bubble bar is a great addition to the Winter 2016 Lush line, I however wish it would create longer lasting bubbles. I find after about 10 minutes the bubbles seem to have mostly disappeared. Its scent however stays strong throughout your time in the bath and it does brighten my winter-tired skin.

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!

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!

Plum Rain Shower Gel from Lush

Plum Rain Shower Gel.png
When I very first see a photograph of the Plum Rain Shower Gel on Instagram, it took me by complete surprise. I hadn’t heard anything about it being released at all. This made it my new, number one must have Lush product.

As soon as I could, I texted my sister in law to let her know I would be sending her on a Lush Oxford Street errand at her earliest convenience. At the time of its debut (July 2016) it was an Oxford Street exclusive so could only be bought from that one store. Luckily for the rest of the world, it is now available exclusively online too.

Plum Rain shower gel is a deep and sexy purple. As soon as the parcel that was sent up from London by my sister in law arrived I grabbed Plum Rain ready to sniff it. I had decided prior to sniffing it that it must share its scent with the Mumkin Bubble Bar. I was however, wrong. Very wrong!

Its scent is completely different from anything I have tried from Lush before. It’s a very sour fruity smell BUT not at all unpleasant. It didn’t take me very long to fall in love with it at all.

Plum Rain shower gel is quite a thick gel. It is very similar in consistency to the likes of Lush’s Bubbly and Hot Toddy shower gels. A little of the product goes a very long way, the smallest amount of shower gel lathers up effortlessly and it is as you work it in your hands in preparation to cleanse your body that the scent really hits you. creditedPRSG3

It is one of the most interesting scents Lush have on offer and I cannot wait for them to bring out more products that share its scent. The scent is refreshing, warm and so very inviting, I can never get enough of it.

Although the Plum Rain shower gels scent doesn’t stay on your skin for very long after getting out of the shower or bath, it does linger in your hair if used as a shampoo. In regards to my skin, Plum Rain is incredibly hydrating, after using it my skin feels silky smooth.

I am honestly so pleased with Plum Rain, it has taken pride of place in amongst my other much loved Lush shower gels and creams.
