This bubble bar was made by Lush around 2005 to smell just like “Big Blue” bath bomb and “Sea Vegetable” soap. It smells just like the bath bomb, fresh, oceanic, slightly floral and citrussy.
This is up for the vote in for the lush kitchen box for the month of june 2023.
I don’t know why I didn’t buy it much at the time when it was a regular item in lush stores.
perhaps because I liked the other bubble bars that were out at the same time a bit more. It doesnt have as much dried seaweed in it as the big blue bomb does. To some that might be a plus. Makes loads of bubbles and It makes pretty blue water.
My original big blue scent family photo from 2006. Whats missing in the original pic is my Sea Veggie, and ‘Enchanted Island’ bath melt, I couldnt find it in my lush museum until a couple of weeks afer this photo.
Lush Times 2005 description: This mysterious blue coloured bubble bar slice is full of the best bits of the best selling Sea Vegetable Soap, so if you like that, you’ll love this. Bubbling Under has mineral-rich; skin conditioning Arame seaweed, balancing lavender and refreshing lime for a deep blue ocean experience. Its amazing fragrance makes this the perfect bubble bathing experience for the boys as well as the girls.
It’s so different than the usual Lush bubble bar scents that i’d give it a 3 and a half out of 4.
As i do every year, i’ll buy the products below and add pics and demo videos, reviews as soon as i get them and use them. 😊
Lush remade two favorites from last Mother’s day 2021; Atom Heart Mother, and Rose Gold. They have the same look and same name, and i’m assuming the same scent, but you never know sometimes Lush likes to trick us. lol
There’s a familiar looking bath bomb that looks exactly like the bubble bar of the same name and scent as last year, only this year it’s a bath bomb not a bubble bar. It’s ‘Jasmine’ bath bomb. I think i have one Jasmine bubble bar still from last year so it would be nice to have a bath with the bath bomb AND the bubble bar. 👏🏼
What are you most excited about? Is there anything you don’t like?
I’m wary of the Wonder Mum eye pad. I hope it’s not like the lip mask Lush made for Valentine’s day that did not work.
The Yummy Custard body wash sounds good to me. And i can’t wait to see what the soap smells like!
I’m hopeful about the shower gel. The products that Lush makes with Mimosa in them, like Rub Rub Rub scrub or Sakura bath bomb, are nice, but maybe this is a different Mimosa scent than those.
Enjoy the sights and scents of a summer’s day, from dawn to dusk and into the glorious warm night, in your bathtub. I assume it’s the same appley So White or Once Upon a Time scent as last year’s, but we shall see.

Bubbly love from your mini me, hold this uplifting citrusy bubble bar under running water for a foam filled bath.
Buzzy Mum soap

Elephant in the Tea Room bath room
A bonkers afternoon tea party in your tub. Steep yourself in Sencha tea, fragrant bergamot and a dash of soya milk.
Jasmine bath bomb
This fragrant flower fizzes away to reveal a creamy white bath with a sophisticated jasmine and ylang ylang scent.
Lovely hand balm
A lightweight emulsion of aloe vera and fast-absorbing oils, scented with everlasting flowers. How lovely is that! Dab or scoop this lovely hand balm onto your palms and rub all over to soften and hydrate.
Mimosa shower gel
‘Brunch babes unite! Enjoy bottomless bubbles, made with a blend of mimosa flower absolute and a dash of fresh orange juice.’
I apologize. I just could not place this scent correctly initially.
You know what really messed with my head? Well, for Easter holidays past Lush has made carrot looking bubble bars. And so when i first smelled this Kim the Carrot on my Valentine’s 2022 Haul video I. DiD. NOT. LIKE. IT.
I expected a natural carrot scent. All the irange carrot shaped bars had carrot juice in them. For years.
Even though its not an Easter product i still expected that scent. And when i smelled the Creamy Candy scent instead-it messed me up 😅 It smelled famisr to me but i couldnt out my fimger on what it was iwas smelling. At the time i couldnt even tell what scent it was. Creamy Candy. It’s CREAMY CANDY 😂
This is a New, limited edition bubble bar for Valentines 2022. It’s a new shape and a new Vanilla scent.
ETA: This is not a new vanilla scent. This is the Lush
Creamy Candy scent.
After i buy one I’ll add more info pics and video when i take a bath with it tomorrow.
Here’s a video i recorded for you of my bath with Kim the Carrot and you can see what it looks like when using it.
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.
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.
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.
These are the Christmas products that are exclusive to the UK. USA didn’t do anything like this i guess. 🤷🏽♀️
Do Not look any further if you want the lush Christmas products to be a surprise. 😊
I’ve reviewed and have demo videos here of all the returning Christmas products. The Halloween 2021 products are here
I’ll be adding what kind of products these are very soon and group them by category ‘bombs, bubble bars, soaps’, etc. Then as usual i’ll be adding each product picture, description, scent family, etc. during the next days all the way up to Christmas.
Products will be available to purchase on the UK site the third week of September.
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.
If the green color fades a bit the color of the water is going to be this:
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.
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.

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.
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.
