Marshmallow World Bath Bomb from Lush

Marshmallow World Bath Bomb

The Marshmallow World Bath Bomb is a member of Lush’s American Cream scent-family. The American Cream scent isn’t a favourite of mine BUT it’s a light enough fragrance that I am happy to use every now and again.

Being honest as always, the  American Cream scent has always reminded me of one of those tree-shaped car-air-fresheners. Those air-fresheners remind me of the long car journeys that I seemed to always be on as a child, which aren’t the fondest of my childhood memories; Therefore the Marshmallow World bath bomb and I from the get-go weren’t off to the best of starts…

All-things-American-Cream are however ridiculously  popular within the Lush community and after getting on quite well with the American Cream shower gel I thought I’d give the Marshmallow World bath bomb a go too.

However I feel about a products scent, if it’s pink it’s still got a good chance of impressing me. With the Marshmallow World bath bomb being so pink I found it impossible to resist so ordered a couple.

The Marshmallow World bath bomb was first released back in November 2018 as a part of a huge community favourites release, amongst other bath bombs such as; the New Blackberry, The Comforter and the Melusine bath bombs.

After selling so well, Lush decided to make the Marshmallow World bath bomb a permanent fixture and it has been a staple, all-year-round product ever since.

As soon as the Marshmallow World bath bomb touches the water a stream of pink and white bubbles begin to fizzle out of it. As it bobs around the water sending waves of pink and white here, there and everywhere a light vanilla scent with a touch of strawberry slowly fragrances the room.

If your favourite colour is pink, then the bath art that the Marshmallow World bath bomb creates will leave you spell bound. Containing Vanilla absolute, lavender oil and marshmallow root powder, the Marshmallow World bath bomb is not only soothing to your mind but your skin too.

Once the Marshmallow World bath bomb has fully dissolved you are left with bright pink bath-water that is silky soft, to touch. The marshmallow root powder really does make a difference on your skin. Once I had got out of the bath I couldn’t believe how soft my skin felt!

Long gone are the comparisons my nose made of the American-Cream-scent and tree-shaped car-air-fresheners.

Although I’m still not a huge fan of the American Cream fragrance, favouring citrus based fragrances instead; The Marshmallow World bath bomb did really impress me. For a bath bomb that isn’t rich with organic cocoa butter like the Roller bath bomb I can’t quite believe how hydrated and smooth it left my skin. All-in-all, I’d definitely recommend this bath bomb and can see how it has lasted so long as an all-year-round product. 😊

Rainbow Bubble Bar from Lush

Rainbow Bubble Bar

The Rainbow Bubble Bar started its Lush life as a Harajuku, Japan store exclusive. At the time of writing this review it is currently only available in the UK within a Lush gift set; This makes it a little bit harder to get a hold of BUT with the 30 years of the bubble bar celebration due to start, I suspect that it will soon be readily available for all. 🤞

Apart from its bright colours, the first thing that struck me about the Rainbow bubble bar was its larger size. Its design is very similar to a previously-released, retro-Lush-product the Ultra Violet bubble bar. Which is also rumoured to be making a return for the 30 years of the bubble bar celebration!

Containing a blend of benzoin resinoid, lemon myrtle and Sicilian lemon oils the Rainbow bubble bars scent is sweet and uplifting. Its scent is fabulously fruity yet subtle; Strangely it really smells of raspberries. I’ve never been very good at describing scents but Rainbow smells like a bowl of fresh raspberries with a splash of lemon; it is deliciously moreish to say the least!

To use the non-reuseable bubble bars like the Rainbow bubble bar,  I either crumble, or break them up then stick the bubble bar pieces (like the photo above) in to a sieve and let the running bath-water trickle over it. I find this the most effective way to use the single use bubble bars. This method is the best way to ensure none of the bubble bar gets accidentally wasted and through trial and error, I have found that it makes the most bubbles!

I managed to get 3 very generously bubbled baths out of just the one Rainbow bubble bar, I am confident that you could however spread this product out over more than 3 baths. Although I feel as if 3 baths showed it to its full potential. A little amount of the bubble bar really does go a long way making it fantastic value for money.

The Rainbow bubble bars scent lasts throughout the bath as do the bubbles. The water underneath the blanket of fluffy white bubbles is a bold and very inviting shade of orange, it is a very similar colour to the water you get from the Brightside bubble bar. The water is also silky smooth to the touch and is really moisturising without being at all oily, a trait I always love in a bubble bar!

If you’re looking for a bath product that leaves you feeling happy and refreshed then the Rainbow bubble bar would be perfect for you. A good soak in a Rainbow bath leaves me feeling ready to take on the world. Once out of the bath my skin is fairly hydrated too, my skin is however normally very dry so the Rainbow bubble bar might be even more hydrating on other peoples skin.

Overall I am really impressed with the Rainbow bubble bar, we have needed a raspberry scented bubble bar for ages; If you miss the Mumkin bubble bar then you really do need to try Rainbow! Not only does my skin feel good after using Rainbow but its gentle fragrance stays on my skin for the rest of the day too. I have my fingers crossed that this bubble bar is a part of the 30 years of the bubble bar celebration as I’d love to stock up on a few.

Nana Shower Gel from Lush

Nana Shower Gel

I feel perfectly safe in saying that the Nana Shower Gel is a Lush product that thousands of Lush fans have been patiently waiting for, for YEARS. Sharing its scent with the Let the Good Times Roll fresh cleanser, it has gone down a storm within the Lush Community.

I just can’t fathom why it’s taken Lush so long to release this absolute gem of a shower gel?!? I rarely take to new Lush products straight away but Nana shower gel had me under its spell after just one use.

Nana is a new all year round product, this means it’s with us for the long haul! YAY! so many of the latest brand-new shower gel releases such as Intergalactic and Goddess have been available for only a limited time. I’d have loved to have got a couple of extra bottles of Intergalactic but unfortunately by the time I had the funds to treat myself, they had all sold out.

As its name suggests the Nana shower gel of course has bananas in. Nana shower gel is in fact a blend of wheatgerm oil mixed in with a banana and oat decoction. I cannot smell the banana in it at all, to me it really does just smell like the aforementioned fresh facial cleanser, Let the Good Times Roll – Toffee-popcorn galore!

Nana shower gel is made with a new sulphate-free and palm-free formula giving it a similar consistency to that of a Lush shower slime, this is the only thing that I didn’t quite like about Nana. While trying to lather it up I found it really easy to drop and waste blobs of it on the shower floor, with a little practice I have gotten a tiny bit better at handling it. I would still however love to see it in a more shower-gel-like consistency some time in the future.

Although I have found the Nana shower gel quite hard to control in the shower, it does lather up well and a little amount of it goes a very long way. It’s extremely hydrating too which is perfect for my dry and often really thirsty skin.

I would normally say at this point of a shower gel that I really likes review that a body lotion equivalent (if there isn’t one) needs to be made. Don’t get me wrong, I’d adore a Nana body lotion but the Nana shower gel is so incredibly hydrating that a body lotion is not actually needed after using it. It’s a lazy persons or those pushed for times dream shower gel.

Nana’s scent really does come alive when it comes into contact with the steam and hot water in the shower, although a little amount does go a very long way I find myself wanting to use a little more than necessary because it smells that good. Overall I do really, really like Nana shower gel and I can look past its different consistency. I know we’re only in January of this year but I’m going to say here and now that I believe this shower gel will be one of the best products released by Lush this year. ✨🍿✨

Fun for all the Family Bubble Spinner from Lush

Fun For All The Family Bubble Spinner.png

The Fun for all the Family Bubble Spinner is a limited edition bubble bar that was a part of Lush’s 2018 Father’s Day line. When Lush first released the bubble bar equivalent of a fidget spinner last year (the Bubble Spinner) I had no idea what a fidget spinner even was. Just in case you’re new to fidget and bubble spinners I’ll briefly explain the ins and outs below. A fidget spinner is a small toy that usually has two or three prongs arranged around a central bearing. They are designed to be spun by the fingers as a means of improving concentration and a reliever of stress.

The bubble bar equivalents of a fidget spinner, like Fun for all the Family do not however work in quite the same way as the toy fidget spinners – (the water from the tap is what essentially makes the bubble spinner, spin). Getting in on the fidget spinner craze has been a very clever move on Lush’s part and one that seems to have made a great impression on the bubble bath industry. Fun for all the Family is just one of the many bubble spinners Lush have created since the original bubble spinner was released back in August 2017. They just keep getting better and better.

What makes the Fun for all the Family bubble spinner unique to all of the others that have been released prior to it, is the fact that it has five prongs. This not only gives the bubble spinner a new star-like-shape but it also ensures that upon contact with the water running out of the tap, the bubble spinner will ALWAYS spin. Which is something that not all the others have been guaranteed to do (without a little help anyway.)

Jam packed with plentiful feel-good ingredients such as sweet orange and lime oils, the Fun for all the Family bubble spinner is the perfect pick-me-up product. Sharing its scent with the hugely popular limited edition bath bomb, Never Mind the Ballistics I couldn’t resist grabbing one to try. As soon as the Fun for all the Family bubble spinner is held under running tap water its cheerful scent fills your bathroom, it’s like fizzy sherbet sweets but so much better. Bubbles also start to appear very quickly while the bath water underneath them turns the most beautiful shade of blue.

What really impressed me about Fun for all the Family is how quickly it created copious amounts of fluffy, white bubbles, I didn’t need to hold it under the tap for very long at all. More than 60 seconds felt wasteful to me and I got at least 10 baths out of just one bubble spinner making it worth every single penny. Its scent lasts throughout your bath and my skin always felt well hydrated after getting out of the bath whenever I used it, this is very rare on my sensitive skin when it comes down to reusable bubble bars.

Another thing I noticed is how it has held its colour, every other Lush product that I have owned that is largely blue, are always the first to fade in colour. Examples of blue bubble bars that have lost their colour within a month or so are The Christmas Penguin and Bubbling Under. Fun for all the Family is however still very blue and I think my last one was purchased mid-June-time. Its scent although subtle, stays on your skin a good few hours after getting out of the bath too. For a reusable bubble bar Fun for all the Family really blew me away. Lush’s bubble spinners just keep getting better and better!
