The Abracadabra Bubble Stick is one of Lush’s newer reusable bubble bars, it was released in the UK earlier this year alongside several others to celebrate the anniversary of the invention of the bubble bar, 30 years ago.
Abracadabra shares its scent with the Blackberry bath bomb and Sultana shower gel. The Blackberry/Sultana Lush-scent-family is one of my all-time-favourites so I always make sure to buy everything that is released in its scent.
Using any product that shares a scent with the Abracadabra bubble stick before bed really helps me get a good nights sleep. Sleep is something I have always struggled with so anything that helps me drift off easier is gold dust to me. Making a magic wand shaped product with this incredible scent couldn’t be more appropriate in my eyes, as it really is magic!
Containing bergamot and frankincense oils, the Abracadabra bubble stick is the perfect blend of ingredients to be around when you need to wind down and chill out. The frankincense offers a sweet yet gentle woody aroma while the bergamot gives it a delicate citrus-fruit edge.
Reusable bubble bars are slightly different to the normal bubble bars, you don’t have to break a reusable bubble bar up and use it in pieces, you simply run it all under the tap as shown in the photo below.
Once you have the desired amount of bubbles in your bath simply place the bubble bar out of the way where it can be left to dry ready for when you next decide to use it. It says on the Lush website that you can get 3-4 baths out of just the one Abracadabra bubble stick. I am however super greedy and always over indulge spreading it over just 2.
As soon as you hold the Abracadabra bubble stick under the tap, the water starts to turn a beautiful shade of purple while a steady stream of fluffy white bubbles begin to build up on the waters surface.
I wish I had a shower head attached to my bath as blasting the bath water with that is a much quicker way of getting bubbles when it comes down to the reusable bubble bars. If you have one, I strongly recommend giving it a go if you really want to go to town with the quantity of bubbles! if not, a good swirl of the water with your hand works great too.
After just a few minutes of holding the bubble bar under the running tap, the bath will be ready for you to get into. The dark purple water it creates is super inviting, you can almost feel the stresses of the day leave you as you slowly sink yourself in.
The fluffy white bubbles hang around right up until it’s time to pull the bath plug out, as does its relaxing scent. It leaves my skin soft, hydrated and appearing brighter. The bergamot and frankincense fragrance stays on my skin for the best part of the next day too.
Overall I really do love the Abracadabra bubble stick, I find the reusable bubble bars to not always be on par with the ordinary ones but Abracadabra has really impressed me, I’m really glad that it’s currently (at the point of writing this review) a main line product.
