Christmas Hedgehog

4 out of 5 rating

This is Hedgehog bubble bar from the 2010’s.

This is such a cute little guy. He’s white and blue with white small shimmer mixed in with the white part, and bigger chunkier white glitter on top.

This bubble bar has the Lush classic ‘Softy’ bath bomb scent, which is made from rose, orange oil and ylang ylang.

I liked him a lot. The scent wasn’t quite as lovely as the softy bath bomb. The scent was more faint than in the bath bomb. But he was cute all the same. He had blue and green inside.

Other products in this scent: Softy, Eyeball, Powder Puff, Noriko soap, and the Valentine 2022 ‘Rose’ soap

Here is a Tub Demo Video that i made for you

Hot Toddy

4 out of 5 rating. smells of cloves, cinnamon

This is such a popular lush product with Lushies. It was never sold as a regular year round product, it was a Mid to late 2000’s Christmas limited edition bubble bar.

This came out for Yule 2003. It smells nice and warm for the winter months. It smells spicy, orangey, foody, and a little spicy like Coca Cola or something. I am the only Old skool Lushie on the planet who doesn’t think Hot Toddy is the best thing since sliced bread. That said I do think it’s good. I would rate it a 4 out of 5 rating, meaning i would sugfest you try it, i may buy one more. Versus a 5 out of 5 rating would mean i would be buying five or more of them to stock up.

Someone asked me if i thought Hot Toddy smelled the same as the Lush ‘Jolly’ shower gel. They share similar ingredients like orange oil, cinnamon, and clove but Jolly is heavier on the orange, while Hot Toddy is a tad heavier on the cinnamon.

Lush Times description: The hot toddy is our Celtic grandmother’s cure for a cold or a chill: whiskey (or whisky), lemon juice, honey and hot water. The Lush Hot Toddy will suit even the tee-total grans because you don’t drink it, you crumble it under the running water to make a warm, fruity, spicy bath with lemon peel, muscovada sugar, cinnamon, lime, clove and a pinch of paprika and a hint of soothing patchouli. It takes the chill off after coming in from the cold.

Ingredients: 100g £1.95

Sodium Bicarbonate, Cream of Tartar, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Perfume, Cocamide DEA, Clove Leaf Oil, Patchouli Oil, Lime Oil, Benzoin Resinoid, Cinnamon Leaf Oil, Orange Oil, Muscovada Sugar, Lemon Peel, Crushed Cinnamon, Paprika Oleoresin.

The previous incarnation of the Lush Kitchen made the hot toddy bubble bar again and the shower gel a couple of times in 2014, and 2016.

Lush made a shower gel (and a few other things) in tge mid 2000’s from this scent because Lushies were begging for a shower gel in the same scent.

Other Lush products in this same scent family are Holly Golightly bubble bar, Melting Snowman bath melt, orange and spice bath melt tablet’

The Big Snow Fairy Roll

The Big Snow Fairy Roll is new. It’s a 1 kilo version of the Snow Fairy Roll. The ‘regular size’ Snow Fairy Roll is like two regular bubble bars and THIS Big SFR is even more huge.

Its the same size as this Big Comforter in my phoro below.

Screamo

4 out of 5 rating. my 2 minute Tub Demo Video is at the bottom of this page. I hope it helps.

I like this bubble bar. Mostly because one of my favorite lush products is Happy Blooming shower jelly, and this Screamo bubble bar was made with that same cherryish scent.

initially when i sniffed it i smelled a licorice kind of scent. But as i continued to sniff it i can definitely smell the Happy Blooming scent.

This bubble bar is very fragrant. It’s sweet and cherry.

This is a reusable type of lush bubble bar, not a regular, break it up with your hand squishy type of Lush bubble bar.

When i got it it had the stick to hold it but when i picked it up to use it the stick came out and a couple of small pieces broke off. I was like ‘oh no’ but it didn’t hurt anything i just held it in my hand instead.

Lush description: Giggle with a ghost whilst blowing cherry scented bubbles through the mouth of the scream. Swish the blower into the bath water to create purple bubbles that will bring joy to even the darkest of Halloween nights.

Happy Blooming

When i saw the color the water was turning i said ‘yeah baby!’ 😄 And the longer i left it in the water stream the darker the purple color got.

It made bubbles like this and afterwards the bubble bar looked like i didn’t even use it. So this bubble bar is good for at least 2 baths.

Here is my 2 minute Tub Demo Video. I hope it helps.

Happy Blooming scent family

The North Pole

4 out of 5 rating. See my demo video below.

This has a nice light bakery kind of scent. Its similar to Lush Snowcake scent but not exactly. It smells like vanilla icing. Its not really spicy. It has white shimmer on the outside of the bubble bar. The bath melt sign is where all the gold glitter shimmer comes from.

Glitter
Lots of bubbles

Alien bubble bar

4 out of 5 rating

Alien bubble bar. Made for the first time for Winter Holiday 2021.

The thing about the Alien bubble bar is that you have to use it before it starts fading in color. This is because the color of the water won’t be this lovely bright green color, instead it will be a dark yellow color.

Do you see the difference between this bar and the one above?

If the green color fades a bit the color of the water is going to be this:

i know some of you have told me you don’t like yellow or brown water so i thought i’d let y’all know.

When the bar hasnt faded the water is more green

the scent is so nice! it’s a citrus scent with a green note.

Prepare to be transported to another world with mountains of uplifting and zesty bubbles. New dimensions await as neon waters refresh and revive with uplifting bergamot and litsea cubeba.

How to use: 
Crumble a little or the whole thing under running water for juicy, fruity neon water and out of this world bubbles.

How to store:
Keep cool and dry until ready for UFO sightings and extra-terrestrial bathing.

Ingredients

Sodium Bicarbonate, Cream of Tartar, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Lauryl Betaine, Cornstarch, Bergamot Oil, Litsea Cubeba Oil, Benzoin Resinoid, Glycerine, Water (Aqua), Tragacanth Gum, DRF Alcohol, *Citral, *Limonene, *Linalool, Perfume, Colour 47005, Colour 77499, Colour 59040, Colour 42090

Ma Bar

Lush began selling the Honey I Washed the Kids soap since before they were called Lush. Back in the 90’s when they were called ‘Cosmetics To Go’.


Ingredients: 3.5 oz $6.30

Sodium Bicarbonate, Cream of Tartar (Tartaric acid), Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Lauryl Betaine, Perfume, Cocoa Powder (Theobroma cacao), Cocamide DEA, Sweet Orange Oil (Citrus dulcis), Bergamot Oil (Citrus bergamia), Sugar Cube (Saccharum officinarum).

Review: When this bubble bar initially came out it was a limited edition “Mother’s Day” product. This bubble bar has the same scent as the popular Lush “Honey I Washed The Kids” soap, “Soft Couer” massage bar, “Honey Bee“, “Gold Finger“, etc. At times this scent can be too sweet for me. I have to be in the mood for the sweet yummy toffee scent but when I am this is a fun, great looking bar to use. In the bath, the scent isn’t as strong though and the smell diminishes too rapidly in my opinion. These are great gifts for a friend too because they look like a cute piece of cake or something.

2006 Lush Times description: The Ma Bar is our solution to the chocolate cravings which seem to possess us when the weather gets warmer. It has been scientifically proven that smelling sweets can satisfy your appetite for them. Crumble the chocolate and toffee coloured (and scented) Ma Bar under your running bathwater for a cocoa, orange, sugar and honey scented bath (let’s not forget the scrumptious smell of Honey I Washed The Kids) which tones your skin and cures your need for sweetness (until next time). The Ma Bar has been extended because you love it so much, you’ve made it a best seller.

Support Bubble

5 out of 5 rating

See my 2 minute tub demo video below

In 2021 The uk government allowed people to form “support bubbles” during the corona virus pandemic lockdown.

So if you were single or were caring or a relative you would be able to form a Support bubble and could visit the person even during lockdown.

So Alessandro at Lush UK was inspired by this an developed a bubble bar that looks like big bubbles.

With a fragrance of grapefruit and petitgrain to cheer you up. It’s the same scent as the Lush ‘Madame President’ bath bomb from Mother’s Day years ago. It’s not a sweet scent. It’s fruity and fresh, with petigrain which is sometimes called the bitter orange tree.

So this was a lockdown invention ❤️

It makes bright pink water, with silver sparkle.

And Tons of bubbles.

Bunny Bubble

4 out of 5 rating

Made primarily with vanilla. it’s white on the outside and pink on the inside.

it’s got tiny blue (real) flower petals which float around in the water when the tub is full.

This was originally made for Easter in 2015. It was remade in the Lush Kitchen in 2017. Also, This was voted on to have in the April 2021 Lush Kitchen Subscription Box

This bunny has a white bubble bar covering a beautiful pink bubble bar inside.

It has the Creamy Candy bubble bar scent.

I LOVE this. I love the shock of pink underneath all that white coating. And i love the Creamy Candy scent. Much more than the Snow Fairy scent or the Candy Fluff scent.

Here’s a group of Easter things for 2015 and you can see Bunny Bubble on the left.

Bunny bubble in the left of the pic
It makes a light/medium pink colored water with lots of white creamy bubbles and tiny blue, pink and yellow flower petals.

It’s up for the vote again for the Lush Kitchen subscription box.

Jasmine Cream

4 out of 5 rating

see my tub demo vid below

It’s said that this shares its scent with the Lush ‘Wintergarden’ bath bomb. But with the addition of Jasmine.

Jasmine Cream is a new limited edition bubble bar this year.

This Jasmine Cream bubble bar looks just like a jasmine flower.

How to use:
Gently scented with a soft creamy filling, crumble under the running tap to release mounds of bubbles atop creamy white water. Jasmine and ylang ylang fill the air while skin-softening bubbles fill the bath.

How to store:
Keep in a cool, dry place until you’re ready to use this plastic-free bubble bath. A perfect Mother’s day gift

This Jasmine Cream bubble bar (and the Violet Cream bubble bar) have a creamy center.

This isn’t a reusable bubble bar, it’s a regular squishy kind of lush bubble bar.

The cream in this jasmine one is yellow.

It’s got some glitter in it but not a lot. And you can see it in the water but again it’s not a lot.

Violet Cream

5 out of 5 rating See my Relaxing 4 minute Tub Demo below

Violet Cream bubble bars

This is a new bubble bar for Mother’s Day 2021. Mother’s Day comes earlier in Europe than it is here in the U.S.

I think that, because of the remarkable design of it, and the lovely sweet violet scent, this is one of the best bubble bars Lush has made in years.

It’s a regular squishy bubble bar, not a reusable.

It’s just like a cream violet, it’s even got some cream in the middle.

Even though there is a mesmerizing green-blue colored glitter on the outside, this bar doesn’t make glittery water, in case you were curious.

Thi bar is worthy of my buying six more of them.

I’ll keep them in my dark closet or my dark lingerie drawer so the color stays as long as possible and i’ll keep them in something air tight so they don’t harden up.

These are only available for a limited time basis, just for Mother’s Day 2021.

This bubble bar makes lots of creamy bubbles.

Lush How to use suggestions:
Crumble under running water and allow the uplifting violet and bergamot scented bubbles to build on top of skin-softening lilac waters.
Smell familiar? This bubble bar shares a scent with our Daddy-o shampoo and conditioner range.

Lush How to store suggestions:
Like any soft-centred treat, keep cool and dry until the moment of indulgence and feel good knowing the rose absolute is sourced from our regenerative rose projectin Pakistan.

Blow Me a Kiss

This is a new bubble bar for Valentine’s this year.

5 out of 5 rating.

see my 1 minute Tub Demo below.

I was not expecting to like this so much. What i love about this bar most is the smell. It’s made with Davana oil. Whenever i smell a Lush product with davana oil it always smells like tropical fruit.

This bar smells like a cross between banana and cherry. The scent is really good!

This Blow Me a Kiss bar is a reusable type of bar.

You use it, and then when you have enough bubbles simply put it where it can dry, like a soap dish, and then you can use it for another bath on another day.

“AValentine’s bubble bar to create crimson waters, mounds of uplifting bergamot and fruity davana oil bubbles and lips that are just begging to blow a bubble or two…”

I couldn’t blow a bubble with it. But i didn’t keep trying either so your mileage may vary.

How to use:
Hold under running water for mounds of bubbles or blow through for an airborne bubble show. When you’ve whipped up enough bubbles, pop on the side to dry for next time.

A Valentine’s bubble bar to create crimson waters, mounds of uplifting bergamot and fruity davana oil bubbles and lips that are just begging to blow a bubble or two…

Botanomancy bubble bar

5 out of 5 rating

See my 3 minute Tub Demo Video below 😊

The Lush 2021 “4:20” cbd bath bomb and Botanomancy bubble bar are the same scent.

Legendary belle Ninon de Lenclos was said to soak in a blend of beautifying herbs to maintain her youthful vigour. You can invoke a little herbal alchemy of your own by drawing a bath full of pimento berry, peppermint and rose petals to quell agitation and promote wellbeing. Take a truly sensorial dip in woodsmoky waters perfumed with patchouli, sandalwood and cannabidiol oils to escape stress.

I just used a quarter of the bar for my bath

How to use:
Crumble under the hot water tap to conjure up clouds of bubbles, and steep in peaceful evergreen waters. If you’d like to follow Madam de Lenclos’ precise example, she advised resting 15 minutes in the magic water and thinking virtuous thoughts.

This product contains cannabidiol, commonly known as CBD oil, for its non-intoxicating relaxing qualities. The raw material is made of 10% CBD mixed with 90% Hemp Oil. This in turn is used at a percentage that provides 25mg of CBD per 200g item. You can find out more here.

Botanomancy is made from the scent of ‘Suoertramp’ bubble bath/shower gel…which is made from combining Tramp shower gel and Smaragadine bubble bath.

How to store: 
Keep somewhere cool and dry until ready to use.

Please note: This product can only be shipped within the UK

Elfie Stick

4 out of 5 rating.

This is a new limited edition product this Christmas.

Lush made this reusable bubble bar for Christmas 2020. It’s got a nice fruity scent. Lush says it smells like pears and bananas. I think it smells more like pearl than banana, almost but not quite.
