Lush description: Pleasure Dough is the Bubble Bar Slice for days when you have plenty of time to yourself so you can take a long, luxurious bath and enjoy every second of it. (I wish.) OK then, it’s also for when you’d love to have ages for a bath but you might as well get as much pleasure out of your five minutes as possible. Made to the personal private recipe of Ninan de Lenclos, legendary courtesan from the time of Louis XIV (someone that knew more than most about the art of pleasure), it contains flower petals and oils to stimulate the senses and to soften the skin. Do enjoy it.

 

I think this smells somewhat Lush Dream Cream body lotion that Lush sell in stores. Initially i was waiting for a typical flowery or sweet bubble bar scent. But this is the kind of therapuetic calming lavender scent that posh spas would use. In the water it’s very soothing and makes the skin soft. Imagine bathing in a soothing blend of Rose Petals, Lavender Flowers, Peppermint Leaves Lavender Oil, Orange Blossom Absolute and Rose Absolute. If you don’t like bits in your bath though be sure to put this in a nylon or seive to keep the petals and bits of herbs contained. This bubble bar makes me say “Ahhhh” at the end of a hard day and I find this to be extra good in the summer when it’s hot, muggy and uncomfortable. Indeed, it feels like the spa of courtesans in a bar.
