Review | Lush Gold Fun

DSC_0098

Lush Gold Fun is a limited edition version of their unique product Fun which can be used as a shampoo, body wash and bubble bar. It can also be moulded into fun shapes before it is used so it would be great for kids. It has the delightful scent of sweet toffee and it shares this scent with the Honey I Washed the Kids Soap, so if you are a fan of that soap you are going to love this.

When it is used as a body wash you only need a small amount to wash your whole body. It lathers up really well and it feels very moisturising on the skin. As a bubble bar it produces a good amount of bubbles that hand around in the bath for the whole time you are in there. I haven’t use it as a hair wash as I am quite picky about what I put in my hair but I have tried shampoos from Lush before and I do like them.

I don’t know if it is just the one I have but it feels different in texture to the Snowman Kit Fun. It feels quite squidgy and wet where as my Snowman one is more solid in texture.

After I had used Gold Fun I found the scent lingered on my skin for a while which I really enjoyed as I love the smell. Overall I am really impressed with this product and I would definitely like to try some of the Fun from the permanent Lush product line.

Lush Gold Fun retails for £5.00 and is available here.

Review | Lush Star Light, Star Bright Bath Melt

DSC_0096

As I had enjoyed using Lush Snow Angel Bath Melt I was excited to try Lush Star Light, Star Bright Bath Melt. I had avoided purchasing this last year as I knew it would cover the bath in glitter. However, I don’t really mind that now so popped it in the bath without so much as a second thought about having to clean up after.

All of the glitter comes off as soon as it hits the water. Then it starts foaming and a blue centre is revealed – something I was not expecting at all. Once it has fully dissolved the bath is milky blue in colour and the water feels lovely and soft. This is due to the Fair Trade Cocoa Butter and Extra Virgin Coconut Oil that is packed into each one. The scent its spicy yet relaxing and is made from a combination of Ginger, Lavender and Lime Oil. When I got out of the bath I was left with really soft feeling skin that felt so moisturised that I didn’t feel the need to use a separate body lotion.

I decided to use the whole bar in the bath, but you could break it in half and get two baths out of the one bar so you get more for your money. Although I did enjoy this bath melt I probably wouldn’t purchase it again as I think I prefer the Butterbear – or Butterball – more.

Lush Star Light, Star Bright Bath Melt retails for £3.50 and is available here.

Review | Lush Drummers Drumming Reusable Bubble Bar

DSC_0089

As I love the Lush Magic Wand Reusable Bubble Bar I knew I would love Drummers Drumming. It is the same idea as Magic Wand, you either hold it under running water or swirl it in the bath to create the bubbles. The bubble bar is filled with Olibanum Oil, Geranium Oil and Bergamot Oil and it has quite a strong floral scent.

I really enjoyed using this bubble bar, it created lots of bubbles and the scent lasted the whole time I was in the bath and it even lingered on my skin once I was out of the bath. Like the Magic Wand this bubble bar is going to last me for a while, you only have to use the smallest amount each time you use it. I wish they had something like this in their permanent line.

Lush Drummers Drumming Reusable Bubble Bar retails for £5.25 and is available here.

Review | Lush The Christmas Hedgehog Bubble Bar

DSC_0091

If I wasn’t aiming to try and review all of the Lush Christmas bath products before Christmas I probably wouldn’t have purchased this bath bomb. I liked the look of The Christmas Hedgehog Bubble Bar when I went to the Lush blogger event but I was not overly fussed on the smell. Whilst writing this post I was researching what ingredients went into the bubble bar and I was surprised to find out that it contains Rose Absolute, Ylang Ylang Oil and Sweet Orange Oil, which are three scents I love so I am not sure why I don’t like the smell. Holding The Christmas Hedgehog in my hand reminded me of the texture of a bath melt as opposed to a bubble bar, it felt like it was melting in my hand. This is due to the moisturising Organic Shea Butter they add into the bar to help soften the skin and leave it feeling lovely and smooth.

Once it is crumbled into the bath it acts like a regular bubble bar in that it creates lots of bubbles and adds a soft hint of colour to the bath, in this case blue. Though once I was in the bath I still didn’t like the scent. I still couldn’t smell the rose, ylang, ylang or orange which was disappointing. I didn’t find it overly moisturising either. Not like Butter Bear or Snow Angel which left my skin feeling soft and hydrated.

Overall I am quite disappointed by this product. I love the design of The Christmas Hedgehog, but it didn’t perform as well as I would have liked it to.

Review | Lush Snow Angel Bath Melt

DSC_0094

I have used bath melts from Lush in the past and I really liked them. I find they do a really great job at moisturising my skin, so much so that I don’t feel I need to use a separate moisturiser when I get out of the bath. Lush Snow Angel is filled with skin softening cocoa butter and has a floral marzipan scent – perfect for Christmas baths. Making up that scent is Rose Absolute, Benzoin Resinoid, Cassie Absolute, and Fair Trade Organic Cocoa Butter.

I was not expecting this bath melt to fizz as much as it did. It was kind of like a bath bomb and melt in one. The white section does not take long to dissolve but the yellow section takes a good 10 minutes to fully dissolve and release all of its rich cocoa butter goodness into the bath. Once everything has finished dissolving the bath is left with a lovely yellow tint and floating gold sparkles. The scent of Snow Angel lingered for the whole time I was in the bath but it was not overpowering at all, which is good as I am not usually a fan of marzipan. The only problem with this bath melt is that it left lots of gold sparkles in the bottom of the bath once the water had drained away, but I am sort of used to this happening with the glittery Lush products so its not too big of a deal.

Lush Snow Angel retails for £3.95 and is available here.
