Snow Fairy Roll Bubble Bar from Lush

The Snow Fairy Roll Bubble Bar has returned to Lush for yet another Winter. I can see it being a staple Winter product for years and years to come so thought I’d finally get my review on it published – better late than never!

Within the Lush Community the Snow Fairy scent dominates the festive period year-in-year-out and features in a variety of different product formats. Keeping on top of my reviews is like a full-time-job sometimes, hence this review going live well over a year since the bubble bars original release.

With the Snow Fairy Roll bubble bar selling so well last Winter, Lush decided to also bring it out in an extra-large version for Christmas 2021. The standard sized Snow Fairy Roll weighs approximately 200g while the super-sized version is approximately 1000g!

If you’ve read any of my previous product reviews on other Snow Fairy scented products such as the Snow Fairy shower gel or Snow Fairy bath bomb, you’d know I don’t tend to favour the sweeter scents. However, over the years I’ve warmed to the Snow Fairy scent somewhat. What really helps sell anything Snow Fairy to me is the fact all of the stock in its fragrance is my favourite colour, bright pink.

The standard sized Snow Fairy Roll bubble bars are the same size as the all-year-round bubble bar favourites, The Comforter and Brightside bubble bars. They are also made in the exact same way – 2 different coloured bubble bar mixtures are rolled together then chopped into separate bars ready to sell.

If you’d like to see them being made behind the scenes, be sure to check out @lushsneakypeeks on Instagram. It’s a fantastic account run by one of Lush’s most creative product-inventors. It’s by far the best insight into life at the Lush factory available on social media right now!

I’m usually not shy when it comes to being greedy with my bubble bars and I always overindulge but if I decided to be sensible with this bubble bar, I could easily get 5 maybe 6 generously bubbled baths out of just the one Snow Fairy Roll bubble bar. My favourite thing about all of the ‘Roll bubble bars’ is how far they go. They are definitely the most cost-effective Lush products available to date.

To use Lush bubble bars, I break them up and stick however many pieces I want into a sieve before running it under the tap. Copious amounts of bubbles begin to build up in the bath almost immediately.

If like me you’re not crazy on the Snow Fairy scent, I recommend using smaller amounts of the bubble bar chunks per bath. After all, it’s easy to add more product if you feel it needs it BUT is impossible to take any back if you’ve accidentally used too much. Sometimes, less is more!

The Snow Fairy Roll bubble bars scent is a sickly-sweet blend of candy and bubblegum making it quite an acquired taste. I wasn’t a huge fan of the scent at first, favouring the spicy products such as this year’s Cinnamon Roll bubble bar instead BUT after back-to-back Winters packed full of all-things-Snow-Fairy I now feel as if Christmas would no longer be Christmas without it.

While the bath runs, underneath the vastly growing blanket of bubbles the water turns a beautiful shade of bright pink with a silvery white coloured shimmer to it. The water is silky soft and despite its strong sweet scent I find myself very relaxed while soaking myself in its waters.

Being honest as always, the Snow Fairy Roll bubble bar isn’t my favourite bubble bar from Lush but the beautiful colour it turns the water makes my inner 4-year-old so very happy! As I mentioned at the start of this review, it’s a very popular product and I can see it coming back year after year in both its standard and super-sized versions. 😊

Sleepy Bear Bath Bomb from Lush

The Sleepy Bear Bath Bomb was first released as a single item a few days ago and has proven to be a very popular part of Lush’s extensive 2021 Winter line.

Lush’s Sleepy range is huge and because of its ‘magical sleeping properties’ happens to be one of Lush’s most sought after scent families.

The masses will be pleased to hear that yes, the Sleepy Bear bath bomb does share its scent with the Sleepy body lotion and Twilight bath bomb.

The Sleepy Bear bath bomb is very close in size to last year’s smaller, Winter bath bombs Tick-Tock and (available again this years’) I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas.

I really enjoyed the smaller bath bombs last year and am pleased to see some of them return. They were just as good as the larger ones and excellent value for money too.

If you’ve read any of my Lush product reviews before now, you’d know I always have a soft spot for the products that are made into characters (i.e. any Lush product that has eyes, or one eye for my beloved Monsters’ Ball bath bomb).

The Sleepy Bear bath bomb is super cute, designed to look just like a polar bear lying flat on its stomach, it looks like it’s ready to slide on down an icy slope and straight into your bathtub!

The Sleepy Bear bath bomb is white all over except for its bum/back. Its bum/back is covered with a sprinkling of purple-bath-oil-dipped lavender petals.

As well as on its own, the Sleepy Bear bath bomb is also available in the gift set pictured here; The Dreamland Gift Set.

As well as the lavender petals the Sleepy Bear bath bomb also contains organic cocoa butter, fine oatmeal, benzoin resinoid, tonka absolute and lavender and ylang ylang oils.

The scent is perfect to help you wind down at the end of the day. After just one sniff you’ll understand why everything that Lush release in the Sleepy fragrance becomes a best seller.

As soon as the Sleepy Bear bath bomb touches the water you are greeted with a ferocious hiss, white bubbles sizzle out of the bath bomb as it bobs around the water surface.

It doesn’t take long for the water to engulf the whole bath bomb and as soon as the water comes into contact with the lavender petals a small burst of purple explodes from it.

As this happens the lavender pieces start to break free from the bath bomb spreading across the water surface.

For such a small bath bomb the Sleepy Bears’ scent is strong, it’s just as powerful as the larger sized, aforementioned Twilight bath bomb.

Sleepy Bear is also a fairly quick fizzer too, giving you plenty of time to lay back and soak up the relaxing and super moisturising organic cocoa butter and oatmeal infused waters, surrounded by lavender petals you’ll feel like you’re floating on a lavender scented cloud.

Once out of the bath, my skin feels soft and just as hydrated as if I’d moisturised.

The Sleepy Bear leaves its scent on my skin too, I can still smell it on myself the next day.

I always drift off to sleep so much easier after I’ve used a Sleepy scented Lush product before bed. If you’re looking for a product to help you relax this Winter I’d recommend the Sleepy Bear bath bomb every time.

Overall, I really like the Sleepy Bear bath bomb. It’s a good price and plain enough to gift it to someone who may be on the fence about trying Lush.

It’s worth every penny and I will certainly be buying a few more before the Winter line is retired for another year.

Alien Bubble Bar from Lush

The Alien Bubble Bar is yet another brand-new, product from Lush’s limited-edition 2021 Halloween line. Designed in the shape of a bright-green-alien-head with 2 big, jet-black eyes, it’s both cute and creepy.

I wouldn’t ordinarily match aliens up with Halloween but alien films scare me a lot more than films with serial killers, blood, and guts so I suppose they are definitely spooky enough to fit into the Halloween range…

Many customers including myself had hoped that the Alien bubble bar shared its scent with the Calacas shower gel (a much loved Halloween favourite) Alien however contains bergamot, litsea cubeba and benzoin resinoid.

Its scent is zesty but is not a part of the Calacas scent family. It’s a lot more zesty and much more potent, it reminds me of a mixture of the Avobath and Melusine bath bombs. If you’re looking for a bubble bar to give yourself a boost, look no further.

Alien fits snuggly in my hand, it’s roughly the same size as last year’s Halloween bubble bar, Bewitched. You can easily get 2 bubble baths out of the one bar. Or one super luxurious one!

To use the Alien bubble bar I recommend breaking it up and running it under the hot tap as your bath fills up. Some people just run it under the tap in their hand, others use it in a sieve. I find the sieve method a lot more effective as it stops any product from escaping, helping you reach its maximum bubble potential!

Once the bubble bar has gone from the sieve, another trick for extra bubbles is to use the shower head. While it’s on, holding the shower head close to the water, pointing it right into the bath for just a minute will help the amount of bubbles you have almost double.

The bubbles form very quickly as the tap runs over the bubble bar, underneath the blanket of bubbles the water turns a beautiful shade of neon green. The scent fills your bathroom leaving you feeling refreshed, uplifted, and ready to take on the day.

The bubbles from the Alien bubble bar last throughout your bath. Some bubble-bars’-bubbles don’t hang around in the same way, disappearing long before you pull the plug. Alien’s bubbles however stick around lasting longer in the bath than you do!

Once out of the bath its scent stays on your skin for the best part of the rest of the day – which is quite rare for zesty and citrusy products. My skin feels hydrated and also appears brighter too.

Overall, I am really impressed with the Alien bubble bar, I love how green it turns the water and how its scent wakes me up. While I don’t think I can ever forgive Lush for not bringing the Monsters’ Ball bath bomb back for Halloween, I’m glad they’ve given us this zesty bubble bar to fill part of the void that its absence has left.

Monster Octopus Shower Jelly from Lush

The Monster Octopus Shower Jelly is a brand-new, limited-edition product from Lush’s 2021 Halloween line. It is inspired by the Kraken, a legendary giant octopus from Scandinavian folklore that was said to terrorise sailors, it has a fantastically spooky back story, making it perfect for the Halloween period.

The first thing about the Monster Octopus shower jelly that caught my attention was that it was shaped as an actual octopus and wasn’t just a standard jelly shape.

If you have read any of my shower jelly reviews before this one, you’d know that I prefer to use my shower jellies whole, in a very similar way to how you would use a standard bar of soap. Some people however chop their shower jellies up using one piece at a time. There’s no right or wrong way to use them so just do whatever you are most comfortable with.

In the past I have always favoured the shower jellies that are in the standard shape, I find them a lot easier to use and they tend to last longer too. The character shaped shower jellies just don’t seem to have the stamina, breaking up a lot quicker. I am pleased to however report that the Monster Octopus shower jelly has lasted me a good 4 uses and doesn’t show any sign of depletion or wear and tear yet.

Going back to this shower jellies shape – I mentioned a few paragraphs ago that this shower jelly has been made into the shape of an octopus. Many people have however pointed out that it only has 5 legs. TRUE. I’m unsure as to why Lush decided to give it 5 legs, instead of the 8 that octopuses have. I suspect that it is something to do with flimsiness and ease of handling it during use. It could however also be something as simple as it just looked better with 5 legs. Again, these are just me guessing.

My overactive imagination decided that the Monster Octopus shower jelly is in fact a star fish that is wearing an octopus Halloween costume! I liked that idea so I’m choosing to believe that now. 😉

The Monster Octopus shower jellies scent is a sweet and powerfully rich, fruity affair. It contains fresh-passion-fruit, vanilla, blackcurrant, sweet-wild-orange and tagetes. It’s the perfect mix of both sweet and sour and it fits perfectly into the theme of a candy filled Halloween. It lathers up with ease, incredibly quickly. I discovered by accident that if you hold it under a running tap it also works brilliantly as a bubble bath too.

Using it in the shower or bath leaves me feeling clean and my skin soft. Its powerful scent also stays on your skin for the best part of the rest of the day after using it. It mentions on its packaging that it can be used as a shampoo too; I haven’t tried it in my hair yet but would be interested in hearing anyone’s review if they have.

Overall, I am really impressed with the Monster Octopus shower jelly. It’s nice that this years Halloween range features this brand-new scent and I look forward to seeing what else Lush comes up with over the last quarter of 2021!

Trick or Treat Lip Scrub from Lush

The Trick or Treat Lip Scrub is a brand new, limited edition product from Lush’s 2021 Halloween line. I use Lush lip scrubs almost every day so whenever a new one comes out I always order myself a pot.

The main ingredient in all of Lush’s lip scrubs is caster sugar. To this day I am still lost for words that such a simple and natural mix of ingredients can do such a great job. It really does make me question why other cosmetic companies ever actively chose to use (the now banned) micro-plastics in their exfoliation products.

Lush’s lip scrubs are ridiculously underrated, if you’re on the fence about giving them a go I promise you, you will not be disappointed.

Using Lush lip scrubs requires a minimum amount of effort, they cover everything your lips need to always look and feel great. They are the perfect product to exfoliate dry or chapped lips and are also very good at softening and hydrating them at the same time. Exfoliating your lips has so many benefits and with all thanks to Lush, has never been easier or tastier!

As well as caster sugar the Trick or Treat lip scrub also contains organic jojoba and lime oils. If you’re a fan of sour sweets, then Trick or Treat is the perfect lip scrub for you. Its scent is nose-wrinklingly-sour and is just like a freshly cut lime. Taking its lid off and having a sniff feels like the very first swig of a really fizzy drink, it literally tickles your nose.

Trick or Treat lip scrub tastes just as good as it smells too; I just can’t get enough. It’s obviously not meant to be eaten but if a little does end up in your mouth while you are scrubbing your lips with it you don’t need to worry.

The Trick or Treat lip scrub is a stunning shade of lime green. Ordinarily, I tend to favour the lighter more natural coloured lip scrubs over the brightly coloured ones because I find the highly pigmented scrubs can sometimes leave your lips with a tinge of whatever colour the lip scrub is.

The biggest culprit of colour transfer in my opinion is the Galaxy lip scrub. Trick or Treat is clearly another very brightly coloured lip scrub however I am pleased to report that during use, I haven’t had any colour transfer from it at all.

The only negative thing about the Trick or Treat lip scrub is that it’s not as hydrating as other Lush lip scrubs. This minor inconvenience is however soon solved with a quick dab of lip balm.

Overall I really like the Trick or Treat lip scrub, it’s a stand out product from this year’s Halloween line. It’s a brilliant lip exfoliator and it is definitely all treat and no trick!

Toby’s Magic Cow Bath Bomb from Lush

Toby’s Magic Cow Bath Bomb has both a cute design and back story. Maya, a 10-year-old customer sent a letter to Lush asking if they could make a bath bomb for her brother Toby. She said that Toby loves both cows and rainbows. Maya’s request was taken very seriously, so seriously that Lush did combine a cow with a rainbow and out of it, Toby’s Magic Cow bath bomb was born!

Toby’s Magic Cow bath bomb is designed in a very similar way to the Snowman Dreaming and Follow the White Rabbit bath bombs with their semi-hidden rainbow-insides. Both have proved very popular within the Lush community so I suspect Toby’s Magic Cow to sell equally as well.

Toby’s Magic Cow bath bomb shares its scent with the Milky Bath bubble bar, it’s a very musky and gentle fragrance so a good bath bomb to go for if you like the Lush products with a more subtle and less in-your-face presence.

Ingredients wise, Toby’s Magic Cow contains popping candy for a bit of extra bath-time-magic, Brazilian orange and patchouli oils and plenty of skin softening coconut milk powder too.

Lush’s Milky Bath/Toby’s Magic Cow scent is admittedly a little strange as it doesn’t seem to match the ingredients list in the product. I’m so used to orange and patchouli being overly dominant ingredients in Lush products (such as the Karma Yantra bath bomb – both orange and patchouli oils feature in it too) that the gentleness of Toby’s Magic Cow’s scent really threw me.

The photo above is of Toby’s Magic Cow having a MOOch in my garden, I had way too much fun with Toby’s Magic Cow long before I even got around to putting it into my bath.

If you have Instagram I recommend that you have a look under the hashtags #TobysMagicCowBathBomb and #LushCommunity as it’s full of beautiful and creative photos of Toby’s Magic Cow – as well as much better cow puns than my own!

Toby’s Magic Cow is a good size, fitting snuggly into my hand. On first appearance it is pretty-much white all over although you can see the odd splash of colour around its edges. It’s a little bit bigger than the other rainbow-bath-bombs that I compared it to earlier, (Snowman Dreaming and Follow the White Rabbit) – The rainbow aspect of Toby’s Magic Cow is also better hidden, that is until it gets wet…

As soon as the Toby’s Magic Cow bath bomb touches the water you are greeted with an explosion of rainbow-colours. Pinks, reds, oranges, yellows, greens, and blues shoot out of it, leaving behind a rainbow-stream of bath-bomb-foam.

Unlike the Snowman Dreaming and Follow the White Rabbit bath bombs the colourful rainbow foam bursts out of the whole of the Toby’s Magic Cow bath bomb, framing it with its rainbow streaks.

Its soft peppery scent slowly fills the bathroom as you sit back, relax and enjoy the colourful show it puts on.

Overall I really enjoyed using the Toby’s Magic Cow bath bomb, its scent isn’t one of my favourites from Lush but it is gentle enough to pair up with plenty of other Lush products if you want to make it a little more interesting.

It left my skin feeling really soft and hydrated. The best part about Toby’s Magic Cow bath bomb is definitely it’s colours and the bath art it creates.

My photos as always, do the bath bomb no justice at all. It’s a beautiful product and wherever Maya and Toby are, I hope they get to enjoy their colourful creation!

Cinnamon Roll Bubble Bar from Lush

In 2021 Lush have released more new bubble bars than I can keep up with, none of them have however got me quite as excited as the Cinnamon Roll Bubble Bar. Cinnamon Roll is a part of 2021’s Winter line and is set to be released in stores and online at the end of September.

The Cinnamon Roll bubble bar is the same size as the, The Comforter, Brightside and Blue Skies and Fluffy White Clouds bubble bars, HUGE! One of the very first items that I ever bought from Lush was the, The Comforter bubble bar. I picked it because it was so big and because I loved the idea that it was a product that could be spread out over several baths as opposed to a bath bomb being just for one.

Cinnamon Roll’s larger size is not the only thing that it has in common with the 3 big bubble bars that I mentioned above, it’s also made in the same way. The red and gold bubble bar mixtures are rolled together hence the ‘roll’ in its name.

If you’d like to see some behind-the-scenes footage from the Lush Factory and for better insight on how Lush make their products be sure to check out @lushsneakypeeks on Instagram. (Watching the videos are much better than me trying to explain it…)

The Cinnamon Roll bubble bar contains, benzoin resinoid, cinnamon powder and the following essential oils; Cinnamon leaf, clove leaf, lime, Brazilian orange and patchouli. Its scent is very similar to the scent of cola bottle sweets but with a warm and sweet cinnamon-rich twang.

Another product with the same scent as the Cinnamon Roll bubble bar is the Hot Toddy shower gel. The Hot Toddy shower gel is yet another Winter product that I love, which is another reason as to why I was so excited about the release of the Cinnamon Roll bubble bar.

The ingredients in both the Cinnamon Roll bubble bar and Hot Toddy shower gel are super warming on the skin making them the perfect product to use for aches and pains, something I suffer with daily.

As I said earlier the Cinnamon Roll bubble bar is on the larger side, I’m not shy when it comes to being greedy with my bubble bars and I always overindulge but if I was being sensible, I could easily get 7 or 8 generously bubbled baths out of just the one Cinnamon Roll bubble bar. I am shocked at how far the Cinnamon Roll bubble bar goes.

To use I break up the Cinnamon Roll bubble bar and stick however many pieces I want into a sieve before running it under the tap. Copious amounts of bubbles begin to build up in the bath immediately, I have never experienced a bubble bar like it!

Underneath the vastly growing blanket of bubbles the water turns a dark, wine-red with a beautiful sparkly-golden shimmer.

When it comes down to my never-ending fight with widespread chronic pain, the Cinnamon Roll bubble bar is even better than when I use the Hot Toddy shower gel. I have never felt more relaxed, and my joints have never felt better soothed as they do when I’m marinating myself in a Cinnamon Roll bubble bath. It’s heaven in a bathtub!

The scent and its magical-warming-properties really hits you as soon as you sink yourself into its waters. It just seeps through to your muscles soothing both your body and state-of-mind.

With the Summer weather finally coming to an end and with Autumn already well underway I cannot get enough of the Cinnamon Roll bubble bar.

Do I recommend giving it a go? YES. I hope with all of my heart that Lush releases this bubble bar every Winter from now on. Sadly the Winter bubble bars are often only one hit wonders but the Cinnamon Roll bubble bar is exactly what has been missing in the Winter line for several years, Lush would be crazy to not make it a staple Winter product from here on out.

Orange Pop Bath Bomb from Lush

The Orange Pop Bath Bomb is set to be released at the end of September as a part of Lush’s 2021 Winter line. You may recognise its design from Winter lines of the past as Lush have used the same bath bomb mould (green leaf too) for Orange Pop as they did for their 2016 version of the So White bath bomb.

I decided to start my Winter 2021 bath bomb reviews with the Orange Pop bath bomb as it’s a product that doesn’t scream the C word. If you’ve read any of my past reviews on Winter products before, you’ll know how much I appreciate the Winter products that aren’t in-your-face Christmassy.

The Orange Pop bath bomb has a very simple ingredients list, Sicilian red mandarin, tangerine, Brazilian orange and bergamot oils with a generous, surprise helping of popping candy too.

You’ll recognise its scent from the bestselling and very much loved golden-oldie-Lush-product the Brightside bubble bar. I considered using both Brightside and Orange Pop together but the Orange Pop bath bomb is so powerful once in the water, I was super-glad that I didn’t.

If I am being honest (as I always am in my reviews) I really wasn’t expecting much from the Orange Pop bath bomb at all. Maybe because I had the Satsuma bath bomb from a past Christmas line in mind.

Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed using the Satsuma bath bomb but it just wasn’t very exciting compared to a lot of the other products on offer that year, it didn’t produce bath art and only really had a gentle citrus scent. I couldn’t have been more wrong in comparing the 2 together, Orange Pop is nothing at all like the Satsuma bath bomb, NOTHING AT ALL.

The Orange Pop’s scent isn’t too strong when you are handling it, that however soon changes when you put it in to your bath water. As soon as you drop the Orange Pop bath bomb into your bath water you are greeted with that super-satisfying hiss and a burst of super-sweet orange scent that takes over your bathroom.

Orange Pop isn’t hugely foamy; Small, light orange and green bubbles sizzle out of it as it slowly rolls around the water’s surface. It continues like this for the first 3 to 5 minutes before the green bubbles disappear completely, only leaving you with the light orange bubbles.

When I first used Orange Pop, it was at this point that I thought, oh, that’s it, show’s over. Then all of a sudden, a huge explosion of red erupted from the Orange Pop bath bomb.

When the Orange Pop bath bomb’s surprise red insides decide to make an appearance the popping candy also starts to snap, crackle and pop too! What I thought was going to be a relatively dull bath bomb just got way more exciting!

I took so many photos of the swirling red and orange bath art created by the Orange Pop bath bomb, none of them do this bath bomb justice. It’s a bath bomb you must experience for yourself.

If you miss the Christmas Sweater bath bomb like me, Orange Pop’s bath art is on par with it and features the same gorgeous colours too!

Orange Pop takes about 10 minutes to fully dissolve, once the popping candy has stopped, you are left with smooth and super-soft blood-orange bath water. Once out of the bath my skin felt so silky. It really seemed to perk the appearance of my skin up, it became much brighter and it was lovely and hydrated too.

Overall I really, really did enjoy using the Orange Pop bath bomb, its lovely scent remained on my skin for the rest of the day – (although thankfully, it is a lot more subtle on your skin than how it is in the bath!)

I am so excited for the Orange Pop bath bomb to hit the shops at the end of September, I really do believe that it’s going to sell very well and I will certainly be buying a few more to use too.

Golden Pineapple Lip Scrub from Lush

The Golden Pineapple Lip Scrub is set to be released at the end of September as a part of Lush’s 2021 Winter line.

Pineapple is one of my favourite fruits and not just to eat. I love it in decor too, right now, I have pineapples on my bedding, pineapple photo frames  on my wall and even a pineapple light. Pineapples feature in one way or another in every room of my house so naturally I was very excited when we first heard rumours about a new pineapple lip scrub.

The first thing that I noticed about the Golden Pineapple lip scrub was its snazzy label. It’s an eye-catching holographic gold, the label changes slightly depending on how the light hits it, I don’t think I have ever been as interested in a label before, it certainly makes a change from Lush’s normal-standard plain black and white labels.

When I first took off the lid and gave the Golden Pineapple lip scrub a sniff, I hadn’t looked at what ingredients it had in it. My nose immediately picked up on something a little spicy, within just a few seconds the sweet pineapple scent did however come through too. I quickly flipped the pot to see what ingredients it had in it as I wasn’t expecting a spicy element at all…

The Golden Pineapple lip scrub contains pineapple powder, yellow Mandarin oil, ginger absolute, golden caster sugar, ordinary caster sugar and plenty of organic jojoba oil and fair-trade shea butter. The ginger in it was the culprit for the slight spicy element and looking at the ingredients written down, I would never have thought to put pineapple and ginger together, but they both complement each other brilliantly.

The main ingredient in Lush’s lip scrubs is caster sugar. To this day I am still amazed that such a simple blend of natural ingredients can do such a thorough, yet gentle job of exfoliating your lips AND without drying them out. I love that the Golden Pineapple lip scrub is both warming and fruity, it’s the perfect Wintertime sugar scrub!

Using Lush lip scrubs requires the minimum amount of effort. They cover everything your lips need to always look their best. They are the perfect product to exfoliate dry, chapped lips and are also very good at softening and hydrating them at the same time. Exfoliating your lips has never been easier (or tastier) thanks to the Golden Pineapple. I will most certainly be keeping a pot of the Golden Pineapple lip scrub in my handbag throughout the whole of Winter. Dare I say Golden Pineapple is my new favourite Lush lip scrub? 😉

To use a Lush lip scrub all you have to do is scoop out a little with your finger and then buff your lips with it before licking off the excess. It’s easy enough to use on the go and the pot is small enough to have in your hand bag/purse too.

Another of my favourite things about the Golden Pineapple lip scrub is its colouring. It looks like it could be just a pot of golden caster sugar, I don’t think I have ever disliked a lip scrub from Lush but I do find that the more colourful ones such as the Unicorn and Galaxy lip scrubs, can leave an ever so subtle (but definitely noticeable) blue tinge on your lips, using less is more in the case of the Unicorn and Galaxy lip scrubs but when it comes down to the Golden Pineapple lip scrub, you can over indulge as much as you like without fear of turning your lips a different colour.

I am totally in love with the Golden Pineapple lip scrub, I can’t wait for it to hit the shops and I hope it sells well as it’s an absolutely perfect lip scrub that I’d love to see go mainline. The lip scrubs Lush keep creating just seem to be getting better and better! ❤️

The Sleeping Giant Bath Bomb from Lush

There have been several giant-sized bath bombs released by Lush over the last few years but none of them have been quite like the Sleeping Giant Bath Bomb. What sets this giant bath bomb apart from all of the rest is the inclusion of the reusable glow in the dark wax stars and moon.

The Sleeping Giant shares its scent with the Sleepy/Twilight range, it’s a massively bestselling Lush-scent, you are most likely to recognise it from the Twilight bath bomb and Sleepy body lotion. There are however many, many more products with the same scent currently available to try as well.

Inside the hollow Sleeping Giant bath bomb are lots of dry flowers. There’s sprigs of dry lavender, dry rose petals, dried pink delphinium petals, dried blue mallow flowers and my favourite, chamomile flowers too.

Being honest as always I don’t ordinarily go for the bath bombs with loose flowers in just because of the clean up afterwards, sometimes they are however worth using as a special treat. I only used all of my Sleeping Giant bath bomb together, petals-and-all as I wanted to get some good photos and also wanted to see it in all of its glory so that I could give you guys a fair review on it. 😊

Pushing the dry flowers to one side, the bath bomb part of the, The Sleeping Giant contains lavender, brenzoin resinoid, tonka absolute and ylang ylang oils. Anything including the, The Sleeping Giant bath bomb from the Sleepy range is perfect to use just before bed. The lavender and tonka absolute are the perfect ingredient to help you wind down after a long, hard day.

After using the Sleeping Giant bath bomb its scent stays with you throughout the evening and even lasts on your skin for most of the next day. Not only do you benefit from its beautifully subtle scent hours and hours after using it, you also get soft, smooth and gloriously hydrated skin too.

The glow in the dark reusable wax stars and moon shapes are a very welcome extra from this bath bomb. We’ve had a glow in the dark soap (the Ghost in the Dark soap) before now but nothing like this that is completely reusable! To activate the glow in the dark moon and stars simply have them sat in natural light so that they can charge, before using them.

The photo below is of one of them broken away from the bath bomb, I sadly couldn’t get a photo of them that showed just how bright they do glow. Like many other Lush products the, The Sleeping Giant bath bomb is one of those products you have to experience for yourself to really get a taste of how it is to use. Photos do not do it justice at all.

Overall I did really enjoy using the, The Sleeping Giant bath bomb. As it is a giant bath bomb it is a little expensive but I am glad I tried it once as a treat. Would I purchase it again? No but only because I can now add the glow in the dark moon and stars to my bath with any Lush product I want now. I love that they are reusable!

The only issue I really had with the, The Sleeping Giant bath bomb is the clear up afterwards. Those dry petals get everywhere! Luckily I have a gadget that goes over the plug so none get stuck, blocking my bathroom pipes up. Scooping them up is easy enough at the end but not something I’d want to be doing after every bath.

I am always first to roll my eyes when people moan that bath bombs are messy so when I say the clear up was a little frustrating it really was. I am however glad I tried this bath bomb as a treat to myself. If I did have the opportunity to use it again I’d probably either take all of the dried petals out or only allow a few into the water.
