Lush Magic Bubbles Bubble Bar Review

Okay guys, so this is a bubble bar I actually purchased back in late October / early November in 2016. It was a very exclusive item at the time, and I got hold of it by visiting the Oxford Street Lush store and asking a sales assistant which of their products were the most new and exclusive. I remember her saying that the Magic Bubbles bubble bar was a Kitchen item, and they they had only brought it into the store that same day. Sorry that I left it so long to write the review – it actually took forever to use up!

Rating: 4/5*



Cons:

Bath 1 using ‘Magic Bubbles’.

This bubble bar takes a while to use up! I got 3 uses out of mine. This is probably more likely to be considered a pro to most people, but for me it was actually a bit of a pain! I have so many bath products to use up as it is, so one product lasting a long time just makes needing to use up so many products seem even more overwhelming! If you’re not a patient person, maybe this isn’t the bubble bar for you!

The bubbles that this bubble bar produces are pretty bubbly, but not extremely so. The bubbles also seem to pretty quickly whilst in the bath. If you like super bubbly baths, try a different bubble bar!

This is a bit of a girly bubble bar! The reason the product is called ‘Magic Bubbles’ is because the bubbles begin to turn pink whilst in the bath. I’m not sure how this happens, but it really does! Regardless, some less feminine people may find this product to be slightly too feminine for their tastes.

This is a SUPER exclusive product! I don’t think it has ever been a permanent line product, and I personally have never seen it released in the Lush Kitchen. I’ve only ever seen it once – which was the time I purchased it in the Oxford Street store last October / November. This means that if you get your hands on one of these bubble bars and happen to really, really enjoy it, you’re going to have a difficult time stocking up on them!

The scent of this product is a soft, sweet, musky, green, floral, violet scent. If that doesn’t sound like your cup of tea then I’d steer clear of this one!


Pros:

Bath 2 using ‘Magic Bubbles’.

I think this bubble bar smelled absolutely lovely! The scent is primarily that of violets, and reminded me a lot of the Parma Violet sweets. It also has a grassy sort-of scent to it, perhaps because of the geranium oil in the product. Either way, I thought this bubble bar smelled really, really good!

Although the bubbles never seemed to hang around for too long, they bubbles produced were generally quite fluffy. Remember, this is quite a small bubble bar and I did manage to get 3 baths out of it, so the bubbles it produces must be fairly decent!

I really like the colour that the bath water is left after using this bubble bar. It is slightly different each time – I personally ended up with 2 light indigo baths, and one violet. If you quite enjoy bluey-purple colours baths, this is one for you to try!

The bubbles turning pink was very pretty!

I found that when I used this bubble bar, the bath water would always feel pretty moisturising. I definitely enjoy moisturising baths myself!


Overall Conclusion:

Bath 3 using ‘Magic Bubbles’

Overall, I did really enjoy this bubble bar. It left the water feeling and looking lovely, and each use provided plenty of bubbles. The bubbles would disappear pretty quickly, but that’s not something I personally mind too much – actually, it is something I think I quite enjoy! It certainly makes it easier for me to wash my hair and body in the bath when I’m not surrounded by bubbles!

Overall, I’m going to rate this bubble bar a 4/5* rating. It did its job (to produce bubbles) very well, and I think it smelled really lovely! The fact that this bubble bar is so difficult to get hold of is what made me give it a 4/5* rating rather than a 5/5* rating.

Lush Boo Bath Melt Review

Okay guys, so I only just finished using up this bath melt today… I know, pretty bad considering I received this as a gift from my partner on Halloween last year…

Anyways, I used it up so here is my review of the product! I hope you enjoy!

Side note: I used this bath melt more as a bubble bar… I’m not entirely sure why I had it in my head to use this product as a bubble bar, but I have a feeling the description on the Lush UK website said to use it as a bubble bar or something? I’ve searched everywhere for the UK description of this product and just cannot find it anywhere!

Photos below from left to right, top to bottom: First time I used Boo and the bubbles created before turning on jets, first time I used Boo and the bubbles after turning on the jets, second time I used Boo and the bubbles before turning on jets, second time using boo and the bubbles after turning on jets, Boo bath melt before first use. I was going to include an image of the bath melt before second use too, but it looked kinda gnarly if I’m going to be honest with you, so I thought it would be best not to do that…


Boo Bath Melt:

Rating: 4/5*

Cons:

This was a Halloween exclusive product in 2016, so it isn’t available to purchase at the moment. This also means that IF it is released again, there’s not necessarily a good chance that you’ll be able to get your hands on it again once Halloween is over. It is a pretty exclusive product so if you end up falling in love with it, good luck trying to stock up!

The colour this bath melt leaves the water is pretty basic, and honestly, isn’t that appealing either. It turns the bath water a sort of milky pale green colour… I really don’t know what to think of that, but I think I’m not 100% keen!

The scent is very strong, and I’m not sure if everyone would like it to be honest. It smells very floral. Extremely so. I’m guessing this is mainly due to it containing Geranium oil, but it isn’t just that the scent is extremely floral. The scent is also sort of.. spicy almost, but in a bitter sort of way. I’m guessing that part of the scent is due to the inclusion of ginger oil. The scent definitely catches in your throat slightly. Anyways, if you really aren’t a fan of your florals, you’ve been warned!!!

I actually didn’t find this bath melt to be that moisturising. It was moisturising, don’t get me wrong. It just wasn’t anywhere near as moisturising as I had anticipated it to be I suppose. It is the first bath melt I have used from Lush, so I expected it to be more moisturing than any other Lush bath product I have used in the past, considering that is a bath melt’s main focus. Butterbear Bath Bomb was definitely more moisturising though, and I’m pretty sure Rose Jam Bubbleroon and Tisty Tosty Bath Bomb were too, and probably some other products! If you want to get this product purely for its moisturising factor, I’d not really recommend it for those purposes alone!

This bath melt does produce bubbles, however, those bubbles to disappear throughout one’s time in the bath faster than bubbles produces from other Lush bubble bar products.


Pros:

This product is super cute! Looooooook at how cute he is I mean, c’mon…

This bath melt was moisturising, even if only subtly! 100% more moisturising than normal bath water and than some other Lush bath products.

Some people might like the milky colour of the bath.

This bath melt creates BUBBLES!!! Like, it REALLY creates bubbles!!! Lovely, foamy, fluffy bubbles :3 They filled my entire bath and were just brilliant!

I got 2 uses out of this little guy. TWO USES!

I found the scent to be really nice actually. Very fresh, crisp and clean smelling. I liked it! The sort of scent you’d like your home to smell like.

I received this as part of a gift from my partner, and it made such a cute gift and surprise for halloween! This would make a great halloween gift for the ones you love 😀

The product itself is super creamy, and melts in your hands. This is due to its main ingredient, cocoa butter. Lovely!


Overall Conclusion:

Overall, this was a nice bath product. I definitely didn’t dislike it, in fact, I think I rather liked it! I feel a tad confused about it, because so many others who have used up and reviewed this product have said how they dislike it…

Anyways, I found it to be very fresh, bubbly, simple, somewhat moisturising and the product itself looked super cute before use! I’m going to rate this product a 4/5* rating. It was a really good product – not absolutely amazing, but it was really nice.

I hope you enjoyed my review!
