Lush Sparkly Pumpkin Bubble Bar Review

Lush Sparkly Pumpkin Bubble Bar Review

Bubble bubble toil and trouble!

Halloween is generally a festival that I’ve never really celebrated, the most that I’ve done is watch Halloween films. But last year, I bought some Halloween themed bath bombs from Lush and tried them out – absolutely loved them! This year, I bought some products from the Halloween bath range as my little way to celebrate Halloween (and to relax). Scroll down to read my Lush Sparkly Pumpkin Bubble Bar review! ☺

Who are Lush?

Sparkly Pumpkin Bubble Bar ✨🎃

If you’re pumped for Halloween, you’re sure to feel jacked up by this sparkly bubble bar. Crumble your pumpkin up under running water to build a mountain of soft bubbles. Lay back in the warming juniperberry and uplifting grapefruit waters as they simultaneously brighten your skin and mood. Happy-making lime oil scares away the doldrums and blues, making you feel happy as a Jack whose got the scream. This shimmery pumpkin is really Samhain to shout about.

I bought the bubble bar from the Lush Oxford Street store for £4.75 (each).

Review

This bubble bar looked so magical when I saw it in store, like something you’d see in Harry Potter ☺

As soon as I put the bubble bar under running water, it began melting away instantly, and the colour of the water started to look more like a shimmery tango (orange soda) with bubbles on top. The smell of the pumpkin and grapefruit is so refreshing while the two little cinnamon sticks adds a little soothing spice to the otherwise citrus scent.

Based on the amount of time that it took for the bubbles to disappear, I’m guessing that I spent about an hour in the tub. The combination of the lime oil, grapefruit oil and juniperberry oil left my skin feeling soft and cleansed even after I got out of the bath. I actually regret only getting one of the Sparkly Pumpkin Bubble Bars, it’s definitely my new favourite bubble bars from Lush (might probably buy some more soon). Hopefully they continue making this next year too! ✨

Have any of you tried this bubble bar yet? What were your thoughts on it?

Bewitched Bubble Bar 🐱🧹🖤

After a busy day whizzing around on a broomstick, run a bath, crumble this lucky little cat under the water and ground yourself with spicy olibanum. Let superstitions go and allow yourself to be spellbound by uplifting bergamot oil as your twitch your nose and breathe in this familiar blackberry scent. Whether in this life or one of the other eight, you’d be a fool to let this pass you by!

I bought the bubble bar from the Lush Oxford Street store for £4.95 (each).

Review

Before I had even bought the bubble bar in store, I was in love with the berry scent. On its own, the bar itself is dry and crumbles a little.

When I put the bubble bar under running water, it took about 10 minutes to melt completely – which is great for me because I still managed to get some pictures of it. The blackberry smell becomes even more prominent while the bubble bar melts away and I loved the way the colour of the water darkens with little flecks of glitter (it really adds to the Halloween theme).

There wasn’t as many bubbles as I was expecting. While the scent was lovely and the bubble bar was overall relaxing, I felt that the bergamot oil wasn’t working on my skin. I must have spent about 30 minutes in the tub. Unfortunately, I just think that this bubble bar didn’t meet my expectations, it’s still worth trying as I enjoyed watching the bar melting. I guess this would probably be more fun than anything else, especially for children.

Lush Rose Bombshell Bath Bomb Review

Lush Rose Bombshell Bath Bomb Review

It’s been freezing this week and honestly a hot tub bath was exactly what I needed, and definitely something I’d recommend for all of you too! In case you haven’t had a chance to read my latest posts, or you’re a new reader, I decided to do a series on some of Lush’s Valentines bath bomb range, as requested by some of my lovely readers. So today, the last review of my mini Lush Valentines Bath series will be on the Lush Rose Bombshell Bath Bomb.

Who are Lush?

Lush are an all-round ethical cosmetics company that are committed to being cruelty-free, vegan and sustainable as possible. Their products are all handmade, smell amazing, and have a cool sticker at the bottom of their boxed products to tell you who and when the products were made.

Rose Bombshell Bath Bomb 🌹

The rose bombshell bath bomb is quite literally a bombshell of roses, with yellow rose petals, rose absolute and rose oil. Once it fizzes, the powdery outer shell breaks away releasing yellow petals with Sicilian lemon and floral geranium oils. I bought the bath bomb from the Lush Oxford Street store for £4.50 (each).

Review

When I first saw this bath bomb, it instantly reminded me of the Twilight Bath Bomb, just to clarify, it’s nothing like it. The Rose Bombshell bath bomb smells quite powdery on the outside, and as you can see from the pictures it is a pastel pink, almost purple colour with little bits of blue here and there. At first, you can’t really smell the roses so much.

When I put the bath bomb in the tub, it began breaking down immediately, at first the water started changing into a very light pink colour with powder floating around. Then as the layers began to fizz out, the water turned into a pretty bright pink colour revealing the yellow rose petals, at this point the fresh floral scents were in the air!

Once I got in the tub, I could smell the subtle citrus scent of the Sicilian lemon oil and the oils were slowly working to soften my skin and relax my body. Generally, the bath bomb seems like a less subtle version of the Tisty Tosty Bath Bomb. I was a little disappointed because it didn’t photograph very well, because honestly the image doesn’t do justice to the lovely colour! After getting out of the tub, I felt quite refreshed and I ended up smelling like roses for the rest of the day (lol), I was inside the bath tub for almost 40 minutes and I will definitely recommend this to anyone that loves roses as much as I do! 🌹🛀🏽

Lush Heart of Enlightened Expectation Bubble Bar Melt

Hey everyone, ☺

I hope your weekend is going well so far!

This post was supposed to be published during the week, but I’ve honestly been feeling so burnt out so it’s a little later than it was supposed to be. If you don’t already know, I decided to do a series on some of Lush’s Valentines bath bomb range, as requested by some of my lovely readers. So today, the third of my mini Lush Valentines Bath series will be on my new favourite product from Lush, with an incredibly long name – the Lush Heart of Enlightened Expectation Bubble Bar Melt. (I initially bought this bubble bar thinking it was a bath bomb, but I still decided to add this review to this series because I loved this bubble bar so much.)

Who are Lush?

Lush are an all-round ethical cosmetics company that are committed to being cruelty-free, vegan and sustainable as possible. Their products are all handmade, smell amazing, and have a cool sticker at the bottom of their boxed products to tell you who and when the products were made. With over 100 stores across the U.K, Lush is easily one of the most prominent organic beauty brands.

Heart of Enlightened Expectation Bubble Bar Melt 🧡

This bubble bar is made with ylang ylang and bergamot oils to brighten moods, Fair Trade organic cocoa butter that softens skin in the bubble bath. The geranium, jasmine and rose oils add to the floral fantasy in the bath that soothes and calms allowing you to step out with confidence. I bought the bar from the Lush Oxford Street store for £4.50 (each).

Review

The top of the bubble bar is quite creamy and buttery. The bottom kept crumbling very quickly and it made my skin feel so soft, the feel of it was very gentle. When I put the bubble bar under running water, I was so surprised at how quickly it crumbled and melted under the running water, I could immediately smell the cocoa butter in there – it was luscious, the water had turned into a bright orange colour with beautiful bubbles covering the surface of the tub.

I felt like a little kid when I was getting in the tub, because there were just so many bubbles! The oils in the water instantly worked on my skin, making it feel so soft and smooth. The smell was amazing, so relaxing, I could mainly smell the cocoa butter and a hint of the ylang ylang oil, I stayed in the tub until all the bubbles had popped – so about 45 minutes to an hour. After getting out of the tub and drying down my skin felt so tender, and generally felt moisterised, this is perfect for anyone who’s skin might need a little extra moisture.

Personally, the Heart of Enlightened Expectation Bubble Bar Melt, is first of all such a long name; I think the bubble bar should be called the cocoa love bubble bar, but that’s just me (🤷🏽), but on a serious note, I think I’ve found my new favourite product from Lush. 😍🧡🛀🏽

Lush Love Boat Bath Bomb Review

Lush Love Boat Bath Bomb Review

If you don’t already know, I decided to do a series on some of Lush’s Valentines bath bomb range, as requested by some of my lovely readers. So today, the second of my mini Lush Valentines Bath Bomb series will be on possibly the most fun and simultaneously stressful to capture – the Lush Love Boat Bath Bomb.

A little bit about Lush…

Lush are an all-round ethical cosmetics company that are committed to being cruelty-free, vegan and sustainable as possible. Their products are all handmade, smell amazing, and have a cool sticker at the bottom of their boxed products to tell you who and when the products were made.

Lush Love Boat Bath Bomb 🛥️

This exclusive Valentines bath bomb is made with a blend of organic sweet orange oil and Sicilian lemon oils to uplift, cleanse and refresh the body. And in keeping with the Valentines theme, it is also made with a balancing and restorative rose oil and it’s vegan! As you can see in the picture, the boat shaped bath bomb also has little heart shaped glitter at the bottom of the boat (which I thought was a very cute touch). I bought this bath bomb from the Oxford Street Lush store for £4.25 each.

Review

When I put this bath bomb in the tub, the bottom of it immediately started to fizz with the glitter and vibrant yellow and pink colours spreading out. At that point, I could mainly smell the zesty scent of the orange and lemon oils. As it was breaking down, the bath bomb let out these lovely frothy swirls of pink, purple and blue with little flecks of glitter, I wasn’t timing myself properly but it took around 8-10 minutes to completely fizz out.

Once I was in the bath tub, I could feel the blend of the different oils working into my skin, it was very gentle and all around refreshing which is a nice change from what I normally use. The water eventually turned into a dark pink colour and the heart shaped glitter sunk to the bottom of the tub so I didn’t get the chance to get a good picture of it, I think that I was in the tub for about 35-40 minutes.

This special Valentine Love Boat bath bomb is fun, fresh and colourful, I love the combination of the rose, orange and lemon oils but I will admit that I was a little disappointed that it didn’t float (lol). If you haven’t already tried out this bath bomb, then you definitely should get on board and try it out. 💖🛥️

Lush Tisty Tosty Bath Bomb Review

Lush Tisty Tosty Bath Bomb Review

Last weekend, I asked you guys if I should do more bath bomb reviews on instagram and quite a few of you said that I should, so I decided to do a little series on some of the Lush Valentines bath bomb range. The first of my Lush Valentines Bath Bomb series will be on the Lush Tisty Tosty Bath Bomb.

Who are Lush?

Lush are an all-round ethical cosmetics company that are committed to being cruelty-free, vegan and sustainable as possible.

Lush Tisty Tosty Bath Bomb 💕

For the Valentines collection, Lush have changed the Tisty Tosty bath bomb by adding a layer of pink to the bath bomb, before it was a powder white bath bomb with rose buds stuck on the front. The Tisty Tosty bath bomb has a blend of woody orris root powder and restorative rose absolute, it also has Sicilian lemon oil, geranium and jasmine too add to the aroma of the bath bomb, and of course the signature dusty pink rosebuds are still on it. I bought this bath bomb from the Oxford Street Lush store for £3.50 each.

Review

The bath bomb immediately started to fizz and break down, at first you could smell the soothing aroma of the rose and jasmine. It took around three to four minutes for it to fizz out completely, bear in mind that I kept moving it around and holding the bath bomb to take pictures for this post (lol). Once the bath bomb completely fizzed out, my bath tub turned into a pretty rose pink colour and the little rose buds were floating around in the tub.

As I got into the tub, the citrus smell became a little more prominent and the water had an almost musk-like smell,  the bath bomb in general was calming, and the blend of all the different scents were in no way overpowering – I must have spent at least 40 minutes in the tub. After getting out of my tub, I noticed that it was a little stained by the bath bomb, mainly where I had actually held the bath bomb in place to take pictures, but it washed off quickly so there’s nothing to worry about there.

The bath bomb did a great job at relaxing my whole body with the gentle and subtle smells; one thing I will say that I was a little disappointed by is that there didn’t seem to be as many oils compared to some of the other bath bombs that I’ve tried out from Lush, but the bath bomb did gradually soften my skin. Overall, I think that this Valentine edition of the Tisty Tosty bath bomb is lovely, I actually hope they keep it this way all year around as the the pink layer adds a little more something to it.

Lush Twilight Bath Bomb

Lush Twilight Bath Bomb Review

Lush Twilight Bath Bomb Review

Last week I tried out the Lush Twilight Bath Bomb, and I loved it so much that I tweeted about it, and sent pictures of it to my friends – turns out some of you wanted me to do a review on the bath bomb, so I hope you all enjoy this review!

 

Who are Lush?

Lush are an all-round ethical company that are committed to being cruelty-free, vegan and sustainable as possible. Their products are all handmade, smell amazing, and have a cool sticker at the bottom of their (boxed) products to tell you who and when the products were made. With over 100 stores across the U.K, Lush is easily one of the most prominent organic beauty brands.

Twilight Bath Bomb

The Lush Twilight Bath Bomb is made of a blend of Lavender Oil, Ylang Ylang Oil known for its natural antidepressant and antiseptic properties, Tonka Absolute and Benzoin Rezanion for helping to reduce inflammation and give a sweet aroma. I bought this bath bomb for £3.95 from the Oxford Street, London Lush store.

Review

Before using the bath bomb, the lavender oil was definitely the most prominent smell, seeing as it is a part of the first layer of the bath bomb. At first, I didn’t realise that there were a few layers to the bath bomb until I chucked it in the bath tub. The second layer is a dreamy light pink that started to add a bit of a frothy texture to the bath, and the blue layer, or ball I should say, swirled around the tub – it looked gorgeous. The bath bomb took a while to fizz out completely (approx. 8-10 minutes), I had to break it a little towards then end just to get it to go faster as I was getting a little tired of waiting, I felt like the water would cool down by the time it would be done fizzing out.

Once I got in to the tub, I actually noticed that there are tiny flecks of glitter in the bath bomb, but I didn’t mind it, it added a bit of sparkle to the tub (thankfully it didn’t stick to my body or the tub afterwards). I immediately felt the different oils, within 10 minutes it had completely softened my skin. The combination of the lavender oil and ylang ylang oil were definitely working in terms being soothing, keeping me calm and relaxing my muscles. At one point, I was so relaxed that I forgot about time and almost fell asleep inside the tub, then the hunger kicked in and I remembered that I forgot to eat so I, unfortunately, had to get out. I believe I was inside the tub for about an hour.

This bath bomb is great for someone who may have trouble sleeping, for those that want a night in to relax or just to pamper yourself (why not, eh?) The first time round that I used this bath bomb I just curled up and fell asleep immediately after coming out of the tub, I’m pretty sure that some of you may do the same too, I hope you all enjoy this bath bomb as much as I did   ✨

Lush Pumpkin Bath Bomb Review

Lush Pumpkin Bath Bomb Review

Happy Halloween to you all! 👻🍬☺

I hope you all have a lovely and safe Halloween. Like most of us, I’ve outgrown Halloween and frankly, with my work schedule and commitments I don’t really have the time for it. At the beginning of this month I did write a makeup post for those that are celebrating Halloween, Cruelty-free Halloween makeup, and today I want to dedicate this post to those of you that would like to have a relaxed evening for Halloween (or don’t really celebrate).

This is my first post on a bath bomb and it’s also been a while since I’ve used a bath bomb, so I’m generally quite excited to review this product. Just so you know Lush have a whole collection of Halloween themed bath bombs, if you’d like to try out some of the other ones.

lush pumpkin bath bomb

Review

Before putting the bath bomb in the tub, I could really smell pumkin more than anything, it smelt more like a pumpkin candy when in solid form. After fizzing out, the combination of the cinnamon and vanilla became more prominent – strangely enough it looked a lot like orange soda/fanta to me.

Once I got into the tub, I was a little overwhelmed with the smells, but after a minute or so it became quite relaxing. I was actually quite surprised at how quickly the oils from the bath bomb started working into my skin, within 10 minutes I could physically see and feel my skin softening up. The bath bomb has a very soothing blend of sweet & spicy smells that work gently on the skin.

I actually forgot about the amount of time that I spent in the tub, if I had to guess then I would say somewhere between 45 minutes to an hour, which I is good sign as it meant that the bath bomb worked well in being relaxing. Surprisingly, the bath bomb didn’t stain my skin or tub, but I did have a quick shower afterwards just in case, after drying down my skin was still just as soft as it was in the tub. This bath bomb is definitely perfect for people that don’t get a lot of time to themselves, it’s great way to unwind and forget about time – loved it! I hope you all enjoyed my Lush Pumpkin Bath Bomb Review. 🙂
