As you all know, I absolutely love it when Lush release one of their limited edition ranges, so when I heard that they had released their Mother’s Day 2017 range, I of course had to pop down to my local Lush store and check everything out. Well after having a good sniff of everything, I eventually picked up the Elsie The Giraffe Reusable Bubble Bar and the Baa Bar Bubble Bar, and I thought that I would tell you what I thought of them.
Here’s what Lush say about both of these adorable looking bubble bars.
The Elsie The Giraffe Reusable Bubble Bar… Keep your feet on the ground and lose sight of your head in the sky. Heads or tails? You decide. Choose one end of your Geraneous Giraffe to swish in the water and under the tap, then set her aside for another majestic bath time later. Create a scrumptious-galumptious tower of bubbles as lemony yellow gallops across your bath to leave you feeling scrumdiddlyumptious, whilst marvellous Lemon and Lime oils refresh your inner sparkle and Grapefruit oil lifts you to lofty hight’s. Wash your neck, scrub your hooves, polish your legs, and reach new bath time hight’s!
The Baa Bar Bubble Bar… This adorable little critter wants to tuck you up in a blanket of comforting Lavender, Rose, and Ylang Ylang, to help you bed down for the night. Fluffy clouds of Soya Milk cuddles you close and brings softness, while Clove Bud oil adds warmth as you soak the day away. A hint of Bergamot teases out the grassier notes of fragrant Lavender and Violet, promising sweet dreams and a fresh tomorrow.
The Elsie The Giraffe Reusable Bubble Bar.
I absolutely loved the smell of this, as it was incredibly zesty, and all of the Lemon, Lime, and Grapefruit oils mixed together to create an extremely invigorating citrus scent, that lingered on my skin for ages.
What it did in my bath.
I really liked what this did in my bath, because as well as creating masses of fluffy pale yellow bubbles, it also gave my bathwater a gorgeous sparkly yellow colour. It did start to get a little murky after a little while though, which was a little bit of a shame, but other than that, I loved it.
I was a little worried that this would dry out my skin as i’ve found that the bubble bars from Lush aren’t particularly moisturising, but after using this my skin felt incredibly moisturised. I have also found that when I use bath products that contain a lot of Citrus oils that my skin starts to rebel, but it was totally fine after I had used this.
The Baa Bar Bubble Bar.
I was actually a little worried that I wouldn’t like this as i’m not a massive fan of anything floral scented, but I rather liked this, and even though it contained Lavender, Rose, Ylang Ylang and Violet, it just had a really nice light delicate creamy Violet smell to it that made me feel really relaxed. I also thought that adding Bergamot to this was a fantastic idea, as I thought that it added a little bit of masculineness to it’s delicate floral scent.
What it did in my bath.
I wasn’t really expecting this to do that much in the bath as it had a rather plain design to it, but once I had crumbled this under the water and had left the bath to run for a few minutes, it produced loads of light fluffy bubbles with a gorgeous pale Violet hue to them that just made me love it even more.
I was again expecting this to be a little drying on the skin, but it actually left my skin feeling incredibly moisturised, which I guessed was due to the Soya Milk, which is meant to be really good for your skin. I also noticed that this left a really nice but subtile creamy Violet scent on my skin for about an hour after I had gotten out of the bath, which I thought was brilliant.
My overall thoughts.
Overall I would have to rate the Elsie The Giraffe Reusable Bubble Bar a nine out of ten, and the Baa Bar Bubble Bar a nine point five out of ten. I really liked the Elsie The Giraffe Reusable Bubble Bar, as I thought that it looked adorable, smelt fantastic, looked great in my bath, and left my skin feeling great. The only thing that I didn’t like about it was it’s price, as I thought that it was just a little bit expensive for what it was, because at £6.99, it was one of the most expensive bubble bars that I have purchased. I again absolutely loved the Baa Bar Bubble Bar, as I thought that it looked adorable, smelt fantastic, looked great in my bath, and left my skin feeling marvellous. The only thing that I didn’t like about it was it’s size, as I thought that it was a little small, given that it was only half the size of a normal bubble bar, but still priced at £3.95.
