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.

Harry Potter Obsession.

Hey guys!

I’ve been thinking a lot about good ol’ Harry Potter recently. No, not the character, the story. I think this new obsession has stemmed from noticing an increasing number of Harry Potter themed items in Primark.

I’ve already taken the Pottermore wand, Ilvermorny house and Patronus tests, and have a Chestnut wood wand with a Unicorn Hair core 10 1/4 inch and Brittle flexibility, got into the Pukwudgie Ilvermorny house and have the White Mare patronus.

Now, I wouldn’t want to be reppin’ the wrong house, so of course, I had to take some Harry Potter House tests. Basically, they concluded that I’m a Slytherin. Slytherins are pretty epic, there’s no doubt about that, but they’re not really “me”. If any of you have taken the Pottermore House test recently, you’ll notice that not only is the quiz very different to how it used to be, but the questions also seem rather… Random? I don’t see how a lot of them would even relate to a house, and I honestly have no idea how I came out as a Slytherin. I always used to test as a Hufflepuff, and always play acted being Susan Bones when I’d play Harry Potter with my siblings.

I’m going to do a Harry Potter. My response to the sorting hat saying that I’d do well in Slytherin is “You’re Wrong!” I’m a Hufflepuff. A Slytherin would never even want to be a Hufflepuff. PLUS, if you want to get REALLY intense about the whole thing, I believe in MBTI personality types more strongly than I do the Pottermore sorting hat quiz, and each type generally corresponds to a house. In general:

Gryffindors are: ENTP, ENFP, ESTP and ESFP.

Slytherins are: ENTJ, ESTJ, ISTJ and ISFJ.

Ravenclaws are: INTP, INTJ, INFJ and ISTP.

Hufflepuffs are generally INFP, ENFJ, ISFP and ESFJ types.

See, I’m a bloomin’ Hufflepuff! How could anyone resist their cozy, sunlit common room, full of lively plants? I think if I weren’t a Hufflepuff, I sort-of wouldn’t want to be a Hufflepuff. They’re nothing outstanding, they are just pretty passive and observant, and like to keep the peace. If I were a Slytherin, surely I’d be far too ambitious, leader-oriented, competitive and insensitive to want to be a Hufflepuff? If I were a Gryffindor, surely I’d be too competitive, enjoy being in the spotlight too much and be too much of a leader to want to be a Hufflepuff? If I were a Ravenclaw, wouldn’t I be too academically orientated and too competitive to want to be a Hufflepuff?

I dunno. I’m having a little identity crisis here guys.

I think I’m a Hufflepuff.

I have the Hufflepuff socks to prove it.

From Primark obviously.

Have you taken the Pottermore House test? Which house did you get?! Do you agree with your house? If not, why not take the test real quick and comment below what you get – you just have to quickly make an account, and then answer 10 simple questions to be sorted into a house 🙂 C’mon 90’s kids, where ya’ll at?!?!

P.S. I’m a Hufflepuff, not a Slytherin.
