When 2016’s Halloween and Christmas line leaked online and I first see Bubbly Shower Gel I honestly thought, ‘ooo a new shower gel,’ then moved on to looking at other things.
If I would have known it was Celebrate scented I’d have literally screamed my house down, I also wouldn’t have completely forgotten about it seconds after seeing it… DOH!
There are a few Lush scent families that I claim are my favourite. It is so hard to choose just one, as there are so many beautiful Lush fragrances on offer however, anything Celebrate scented is always a hit with me.
I have given up hope of ever getting hold of a bottle of Celebrate Shower Gel, I think it is on every Lushies desperately in search of list BUT because of copyright issues that I don’t really understand, it cannot be produced in the UK.
Although the Bubbly shower gel isn’t the same as Celebrate shower gel, it does soften the blow to the Celebrate Shower Gel void that I have in my life. *sigh*
Some argue that this shower gel isn’t quite the same as the other ‘celebrate’ products, I can see what people mean but all in all it is 100% a member of the Celebrate family according to my nose.
Bubbly Shower Gel is a lot thicker in consistency than I had anticipated. It doesn’t pour out of the bottle it gloops. Its texture reminds me of honey that you get in the squeezy bottles.
I know the word ‘gloop’ isn’t the most inviting for a shower gel, I however really like its gloopy composition. It’s an identical consistency to Lush’s Plum Rain shower gel , thick yet silky smooth.
A little of the Bubbly shower gel goes a very long way and it lathers up effortlessly. As you work it onto your body the scent really hits you.
It’s a delicate fragrance that is very warming and relaxing. In my imagination the scent makes me think of family meal times. Especially those where we are celebrating Christmas, a birthday etc. It’s quite a tangy citrus and it really is such a beautiful scent.
The smallest amount of Bubbly shower gel leaves my skin bright, soft and perfectly moisturised.
Although I have several shower gel and cream favourites, I’d go as far as to say that Bubbly is one of the best Lush shower gels that I have ever used.
If I ended up in hell and was only allowed to take one shower gel with me, Bubbly would make it into the shortlist without a doubt.
Its scent stays with me all day. My skin adores it, as does my nose. I have both the liquid and solid versions of Celebrate perfume a dab or a spritz of this intensifies its fragrance yet is still soft enough to not become over powering.
I will be buying several bottles of this before Christmas has finished and I will miss it in all of the shops and online once it has gone.
I hope they decide to bring it out next year too and maybe some more Celebrate scented products, a return of the Celebrate Body Lotion and First Snow Dusting Powder would go down a treat.
Bubbly really is a beautiful shower gel, so much so that I may even go all out and buy a kg bottle of it!
