Puddy Holly

4 out of 5 rating

£4.95/$6.49
This is not a returning product but is new.

This smells yummier than i thought it would. I thought it might be spicy like lush holly go lightly but Puddy Holly smells different, like a yummy almond and vanilla dessert.

Puddy Holly is made with Tonka. Tonks bean smells much like vanilla onky a bit carmely.

Its not a strong heavy scent but more of a medium light scent.

Its got conditioning cocoa butter sandwhiched in the middle, which is moisturizing to my uber dry skin.

I like the pretty emerald colored water it gives.

There is also a bit of silver sparkle. Not a large amount though, its every so slight.

I would buy another, but i wouldn’t stock up on them. Thats why i give this bubble bar a 4 out of 5 rating.

Description: Have a holly, jolly bathtime,
Almond oil sweetens your day!
Water a-glow with bubble mountains of snow
And soothing slicks of shea.

Have a holly, jolly bathtime
In a marzipan scented dream.
Soft cocoa butter on your toes,
And fifty shades of green.

Have a holly, jolly bathtime
Let bergamot give you cheer.
Oh by golly have a holly jolly bathtime
This year!

Here is a demo of it in the tub that i recorded for you

Yog Nog Yule Log

5 out of 5 rating

This has such a rich, lucious scent of vanilla and rich yumminess. Yog Nog is a great dessert-like Christmas scent. Its got lots of vanilla, ylang ylang, tonka. Its sweet, but not cloyingly so. Imagine Lush Butterball but with some clove and nutmeg and carmel notes thrown in, along with even more of an array of wonderful, skin softening ingredients.

This is quite possibly the best Lush bath product ive ever had the pleasure of using.

Im pretty sure having a romantic relationship with food…or bath products that look like food…is weird.

I love this bar so much. I wish i could hug it.

Thank you Lush for having a stroke of genius.

I’m not ashamed to say that saved a fair sized chunk of this bubble bar to rub on my arms legs and face.

Yes, i know we’re not supposed to use a bubble bar this way. I just couldnt help it, its THAT good.

Rest assured though-it was worth it.

The water is so moisturizing with this bubble bar that it’s harder to get quite the ‘loft’ of bubbles like the usual lush bubble bars bring. The extra decadence is worth the loss of bubbles trust me.

I would rate this one of those rare products that is above a 5 out of 5 rating.

I would say this has the potential for being a classic, like Snowcake or Luxury Lush Pud.

*Stares at any potential readers from Lush Inc in a pleading way*

I will definitely buy 5-10 of these.

Candy Cane

3 out of 5 rating

£3.95 (converted to $5.13)

I like this new Candy Cane reusable bubble bar. For a reusable bubble bar its nice. Its harder for me to like the reusable kind for whatever reason. I guess its the softer texture i like. But like i said i make an exception for this one because of the way it looks. A perfect candy cane. Spot on. You can even hang it on the tree as an ornament.

Makes a cute stocking stuffer for Christmas.

I like the surprising fruity scent. Lush says its a new scent. The ingredients say its made with l lemon and bergamot.

For whstever reason i smell cherries, and im not complaining. I like this smell.

The color of the water is kind of a peach color.

This makes lots of bubbles! And as you can see from my video i had an entire bar left! More than enough for a second bath! Possibly a third.

While i like this i might buy one other but Im not sure what im looking for as far as bumping this to a higher rating. I guess because i like the bath bombs more than the bubble bars, and i like the reusables even less. Like i say its a 3 rating so that means i would indeed recommend it, its just not high up on the list of lush Christmas 2018 products. There are plenty of products for Christmas this year from Lush that i like more.

If it was not reusable but had the same shape, and had white and red sparkles on it and had mint along with the cherry, that would bump it up to a 4 or 5.

Here is a 2 minute tub demo i recorded for you of the Candy Cane reusable bubble bar.

Lush description: What’s red and white and can be used over and over? A decoration for the tree or a cheeky stocking filler, the possibilities are endless when you take a trip down candy lane. Hang out with this double stripe of bergamot and Sicilian lemon oils to lift the mood and create a fruity fresh fragrance that will have you bathing time and time again. Hold under the running water to froth up mounds of fluffy bubbles before placing on the side to dry, ready for your next trip to candyland.

Bearded Lady

4 out of 5 rating

Fruity and woody.

Made with the same ingredients as Lush ‘King of Skin’ body conditioner.

It has banana in it for moisturizing properties. It also has oat milk. It doesnt necessarily smell like banana though. It has sandalwood for starters, which i love, but it makes the scent of this slightly woody and nice.

I love king of skin bar so its no wonder i like the scent of this.

Its cute for Christmas.

Originally it was released in 2005/2006 and i bought one then via lush uk.

And then in 2017 the Lush Kitchen re-made it for us to buy, which is where i got this one.

Lemon bubble brush

3 out of 5 rating

Lemon bubble brush is one of three new re-usable style bubble bars from Lush. While i dont normally like the reusables as much as Lush regular squishy bubble bars, these new bubble brushes are fun to use!

This is the yellow bubble brush new for 2018. Unlike its blue and pink counterparts this one smells lemony. It has the same scent as Lush ‘Lemslip’ buttercream. Its made with lime, and sweet orange oil.

It’s not very sweet. In fact i wish it were more sweet. And honestly, i wish it smelled stronger.

It leaves a bright, sunny yellow hue to the bath water.

I like to blend it with the blue bubble brush sometimes.

I like the mint and candy bubble brushes more than this yellow lemon one because the scents and colors are nicer to me. Just a personal preference.

I liked using it but i wouldn’t necessarily buy another one. Whereas i would buy anothrr blue one.

Candy bubble brush

4 out of 5 rating.

while the re-usable bubble bars are not my favorite…these new bubble brushes are fun. The re-usable consistency lends itself very well to these ‘brushes’ shape.

The Candy bubble brush is my second favorite bubble brush.

Candy bubble brush is made with the Lush ‘Candy Fluff’ scent. synthetic musk is used in this because in order to use real musk the animal is killed.

i like this one because the scent is sweet and nice like some kind of pink candy.

Heres a video i made where i demo all of the bubble brushes including the Pink Candy bubble brush

I can use it by itself to make a pink color or i sometimes like to mix colors as below

Can’t decide which one to go for? As the saying goes – different strokes for different folks, which is why there’s a palette of three colours to Picasso from (but it wouldn’t Erté to try them all). Candy Bubble Brush creates a vibrant pink with a sweet candy fluff scent that will have you coming back for more.

Pink Petigrain

2 out of 5 rating

This is the most bitter thing I’ve ever smelled in a long time.

I wanted to like this because its so pretty.

Pink petigrain is supposed to share its scent with the Lush madame president bath bomb. Grapefruit and petigrain.

What in the actual…?

I said to myself ‘There is NO WAY my petigrain flower smells like madame president bath bomb’.

Firstly, i LOVE the scent of Madame President.

I bought six of them.

Secondly, i HATE the scent of this Pink Petigrain blossom.

When i got it out of my package my eyes lit up because of the pretty coral color and the flower shape.

But i recoiled back when my nose smelled it.

How do we explain that?

Maybe because some things melted in my order the scents combined strangely? Dunno.

I was so adament i said i dont even care if Mark or Jack C themselves tell me it is.

I have both Madame President bomb & Pink Petitgrain blossom bubnle bar side by side. NO.

I don’t know if i got a bad one or what but no. Mmmkay. Just *NO*.

Did my nose just all of a sudden after 17 years just say ‘April, i’m done.’? I’m not sure, but suffice it to say i dont like the bitter, unpleasant smell of this bubble bar, and i won’t be buying another one. I had to use something else with it because i couldnt stand the smell. How odd. I havent had a reaction to a lush product in quite sometime. But i guess i cant like them all. *Shrug*

Your mileage may vary.

Description

For a couple of hours, lay back and indulge in pink waters covered in soft, fluffy bubbles. Calming petitgrain oil works its wonders on worries and cares, the woody scent evoking images of summer walks through citrus groves. Meanwhile, refreshing grapefruit oil lifts moods high above the clouds of the day, bringing with it memories of breakfasts taken on warm, sunlit verandas. Hold this flower under running water and let it spin and build bubbles before breathing deeply and allowing yourself to be transported away on a cheerful, summer breeze.
