Dragon Legend Reusable Bubble Bar from Lush

The Dragon Legend Reusable Bubble Bar is a brand new Lush product released in celebration of the Lunar New Year. Traditionally during the Luna New Year an ancient dragon-dance is performed to scare away any evil spirits.

Dragons are said to bring luck, wisdom and strength. With the way the last 12 months have been for everyone, I think we could all do with a dragon-dance or 2, anything to help us move on from 2020 and to move forward into 2021 with a better mindset and a bucket-load of hope is good for me! 🤞

The Dragon Legend reusable bubble bar shares its scent with the Christmas Eve bubble bar and Northern Lights bath bomb, it’s quite an acquired taste BUT fortunately it is a scent that I enjoy in whatever format Lush choose to release it in.

Dragon Legend contains jasmine absolute, dragon fruit powder and ylang ylang oil. Summed up quickly. Dragon Legends scent is a punchy and musky-floral. Often compared to the smell of washing detergent, it is a delightfully refreshing and crisp fragrance. The more you sniff it, the more your nose seems to pick up from it.

Lush have stated that you can get 3 adequately bubbled baths out of just one of the Dragon Legend reusable bubble bars. Although I feel it always depends on your bathrooms water pressure and whether you live in an area with hard or soft water, I’d say getting 3 baths out of the one bubble bar isn’t at all optimistic.

I am often very greedy when it comes to Lush, using much more than I need per bath but with Dragons Legend I really didn’t need to over-indulge to get the best out of it.

As soon as you place the Dragon Legend reusable bubble bar under the running tap, bubbles and water begin to fill up your bath tub. The water underneath the quickly forming blanket of fluffy white bubbles is decorated with a shimmery-plastic-free-gold and is an invitingly-warm orange colour. Its clean, fresh scent slowly fills your bathroom as the bath fills up with water.

Once you have your desired amount of bubbles in the bath tub, to get the most out of the reusable bubble bar put it out of the way in a cool, dry place, leaving it to dry until you want to use it again. As I said earlier, I love nothing more than to over indulge when it comes to Lush, especially with Lush bubble bars but with Dragons Legend you get a lot of bubbles very quickly, making it very cost effective.

The bubbles created by the Dragon Legend reusable bubble bar sadly do not last as long as I had hoped they would. I do find that this is often the case with Lush’s reusable bubble bars though.

Its fragrance does however last and it remains on your skin hours after getting out of the bath too. It leaves my skin soft-to-the-touch and it also appears plumper and a little brighter as well.

I have really enjoyed using the Dragon Legend reusable bubble bar and I hope that Lush decide to bring out a larger Lunar-New-Year line next year and every year from here-on-out. There is also a huge gap on the Lush shelves for a Dragon Legend/Northern Lights scented body lotion and body spray; Hint, hint, Lush! 😉

Dragon’s Egg Bath Bomb from Lush

dragons-egg-bath-bombIt really annoys me when people use the word ‘boring’ to describe the Dragon’s Egg Bath Bomb. Why? because it is anything but boring. Up against all of the other bath bombs such as Fizzbanger, Frozen and Lava Lamp I can definitely see why people may over look it, to however call it boring is an undeserved insult.

Yes it’s a pale cream colour and not nearly as bright as some of the other surrounding bath bombs but you should never judge a book by its cover. A bath bomb has so much more going for it than just its colour or shape.

What made the Dragon’s Egg bath bomb stand out to me was its amazing fragrance. It has a sweet yet sharp lemon sherbet scent that makes my mouth water. If I’m struggling for energy a Dragon’s Egg bath always gives me a boost.

Inspired by Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, (obviously because of the dragons and of course the prefect-only-bathroom scene that every Lushie is of course insanely jealous of) The Dragon’s Egg bath bomb is decorated with a light dusting of coloured, rice-paper circles. These are added to the outer layer of the bath bomb in the final stages of it being made and pressed into its temporary mold.

As the bath bomb dissolves in your bath water, layer by layer it slowly reveals them. They are however very delicate colours, I have heard a few people say that the Dragon’s Egg bath bomb would create bath art on par with the Luxury Lush Pud bath bomb, unfortunately it doesn’t. This doesn’t however make it a bad bath bomb.

The Dragon’s Egg bath bomb is a slow burner. At first nothing much seems to be happening visually. The scent of it intensifies and fills your bathroom immediately after hitting the water, it isn’t until a good 8/10 minutes later that it becomes visually pleasing  too.

The bath bomb then appears to crack, with that crack a burst of golden orange bubbles begins to spill out of the bath bomb creating the most beautiful, shimmery patterns on the top of your bath water.

Shortly after that there appears to be something else going on. People that aren’t aware that the Dragon’s Egg bath bomb contains popping candy are in for a BIG surprise at this point. Not only is the water slowly getting decorated with shimmery patterns but there appears to be a lot of snap, crackle and pops! Which might I add is a very strange yet pleasant experience.

A Dragon’s Egg bath always leaves my skin in tip-top condition. I not only get out of the bath with smooth hydrated skin but I smell fabulous too.

The Dragon’s Egg has one of my most favourite Lush scents, if not my ACTUAL favourite. There is just something about its sweet-citrus scent that gets me every time. It boosts my mood if I’m feeling low, fights fatigue when I’m not feeling very perky and also helps me sort out my head when I’m feeling stressed or not thinking clearly.

It’s a great bath bomb that pleases all of your senses, there’s not one single thing about it that is ‘boring.’ I  really don’t know what the Dragon Egg haters are talking about. It’s fabulous!
