Botanomancy CBD Bubble Bar from Lush

The Botanomancy CBD Bubble Bar is a brand-new product and is the first of its kind from Lush. It was released alongside the 4:20pm CBD bath bomb back on Christmas Eve, 2020. CBD is short for cannabidiol, cannabidiol is the non-psychoactive compound found in hemp plants.

There has been a lot of research conducted around the use of CBD oil and it is said to have a long list of health-benefits. In particular it helps with stress management and those suffering with anxiety and/or sleep problems.

CBD has also been proven to help people like me, who suffer from medical conditions that cause wide-spread chronic pain. The very reason I first got into Lush Cosmetics was because I was looking for natural alternatives to prescription painkiller medications. With this in mind I didn’t hesitate to buy Botanomancy when it became available.

The Botanomancy CBD bubble bar is the same size as the bestselling bubble bars, Brightside and The Comforter which has certainly pleased the masses. After all everyone likes more for their money! As well as the cannabidiol, Botanomancy also contains patchouli, sandalwood, ginger and dried peppermint leaf and rose petals. Its scent is really herbilicious, earthy and refreshing.

The first time I  used the Botanomancy CBD bubble bar I decided to stick half of the bar into my bubble bar sieve, this was way too much and a complete waste. The smallest amount creates more than enough bubbles, you can easily get 6 baths out of one bar, more if your water pressure is strong.

A blanket of fluffy white bubbles doesn’t take very long to form at all. Underneath the bubbles, the water is an earthy green scattered with the dried rose petals.

There is no better feeling than sinking yourself into a nice hot bath after a long day. If I am being honest, like the aforementioned 4:20pm CBD bath bomb, I wouldn’t say I was anymore relaxed than I’d normally be after just an ordinary Lush bath BUT I was relaxed enough to get straight into bed and a good nights sleep followed.

There are some aspects I’d like to tweak to this bubble bar, I personally would prefer it without the dried petals but I’ve seen plenty of people on Instagram who really liked their inclusion.

Other than that I really liked this bubble bar and I hope that Lush decide to bring out a few more CBD products as it’s something I’d love to try more of.

Baa Bar Bubble Bar from Lush

I can never resist grabbing the products that Lush make into little creatures, when the 2017 Mother’s Day range was released my eyes fell instantly upon the Baa Bar Bubble Bar. These miniature sheep are undeniably cute and when faced with a huge pile of them at Lush Oxford Street, I couldn’t help but take a photograph before grabbing myself one.

The Baa Bar is a slightly smaller size than the Ladybird bubble bar. I was so disappointed at the fact that the Ultraviolet bubble bar wasn’t re released this year, it was such good value for money and it was also a product that sometimes helped me manage my migraines.

After one sniff of the Baa Bar bubble bar I was however a lot happier with Lush’s decision to retire Ultraviolet. Baa Bar is by no means the same as the Ultraviolet bubble bar but it does have enough violet leaf absolute in it to pacify me. With it being a little bit smaller than the already small Ladybird bubble bar, Baa Bar had to really impress me to remain in my list of must have Lush products…

In regards to price, I will admit that at first I felt a little cheated because the Baa Bar is so very small. Baa Bar has however still made it onto my list of favourite Mother’s day products because the smallest amount of it really does go a very, very long way.

You could easily get 3 or 4 generously bubbled baths out of the one Baa Bar bubble bar, leaving it on a level par with the bigger bubble bars such as Brightside. The first time I tried the Baa Bar bubble bar, I actually used half of one without even thinking.

It made for a glorious bath, I had honestly never seen so many bubbles and as fun as the foam party for one was, I couldn’t help but feel using a huge amount like it was a waste, therefore I now stick to using just one-quarter of chunk of Baa Bar per bath.

The fact that the Baa Bar is purple on the inside has pleased a lot of people too. There’s nothing at all wrong with the plainer coloured products the more colourful ones however seem to sell a bit better so I thought this not very apparent point  was worth a mention.

As I said above, a little of the Baa Bar bubble bar goes a very long way, just a quarter of it creates copious amounts of fluffy-white, violet, lavender and bergamot scented bubbles. Underneath this beautiful and fragrant blanket of bubbles lays a bath full of silky-soft, purple water that brightens, refreshes and soothes tired and dull skin.

Any product with violet leaf absolute in is always welcome in my house because I find that particular ingredient very soothing. If caught in time, a product with violet leaf in can stop one of my migraines in its tracks. Which means (that to me) Baa Bar is worth its weight in gold.

Being honest as always, I’m still not completely sold on this years Mother’s day range (2017). I still have to use some of the other products a few more times before I make my final decision on them as a whole though. Out of all of the new products, the Baa Bar bubble bar is the one that has made the biggest and most positive impression on me. It is one I will most certainly be stocking up on before the Mother’s  day period is through.
