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.
I love the scents of these new, limited edition Lush/SuperMarioBros collab products. 😊 Bowser = Hot Toddy scent Mario = Santa Claus scent Princess Peach = new scent supposedly. I describe them in my video.
My unboxing video
Ill be opening, using, reviewing, video demos for each of these products starting tonight.
This is a new product for Valentines 2023. My short Tub Demo Video is coming and will be attached to this post shortly.
This is a Lush bath melt. Lush has had many different designs of bath melts through the yearsz This Love Island bath melt is reminiscent of their original cupcake shaped bath melts. Their most famous cupcake type is called ‘Floating Island’. So tou can see the play on words of ‘Love Island.
Floating island is a dessert. And Love Island is the name of a reality show in England about couples on an island.
The scent if Love Island is that of the Lush Keep it Fluffy’ Lush has made the perfume a few times throughout the years since 2004 when they opened their sister company ‘B Never Too Bust To Be Beautiful’.
The fragrance is a floral and fruity combination made with rose, lemon, jasmine, bergamot.
Lush has created many kinds of different products in the scent. Their sister company B Never also made candles, incense, liquid bath oil, bath powder, etc.
This bath melt’s scent isnt very strong. Its nice, but it could be stronger imo.
The bath melt is a rose color with tiny silver sparkle mixed throughout.
I would give this a 4 out of 5. Mostly because i love the shape, the look, and the scent.
See my 2 minute Tub Demo Video towards the bottom of this page to see what it looks like 😊
This is such a pretty color of pink! Its scent is made primarily with Tonka bean. So its kind of vanilla like. It reminds of the scent of the Lush Pink Fun bar. Its not a strong scent but its not so faint that you cant smell it either.
There is no glitter in this bomb which is nice for a change.
It was one of those rolling around the tub bath bombs which is fun. The activity lasted a goid amount of time which i love.
This bath bomb is so funny looking. Its made with neroli, lime and frankincense: the Lush ‘Calacas’ scent. Calacas is a classic Lush Halloween product scent. Calacas represents the time of year of Dio De Los Muertos/Day of the Dead.
Its a beautiful swirling pink and blue color. Its a slow, foaming type of bath bomb. And it has fine silver sparkle shimmer in it. The end result is a deep purple water. Gorgeous.
This is a fun bath bomb, looking like a Spaceship ufo. Its got a fruity scent made with lemongrass and black currant. Its almost like a derivative of the Lush ‘Space Girl’ bath bomb scent. But UFO has a bit more citrus.
Its got green salt crystals inside of it. Its got a top on it so you can pour some of the salt in your bath for softening the water, or you can just out the too in for one bath and the yellow saucer part for another bath, or you can out the whole thing in.
Heres a tub demo video that i recorded
It looks like some kind of desert at this ‘starting to foam’ stage. 😊
Initially its a quiet, slow foaming yellow bath bomb, and then the small blue top is a fast, fizzy type of bath bomb.
The end result is a cool, alien/nuclear/UFO green color.
It was a fun bomb. I would buy another one perhaps.
I love that not only do we have a Ufo to bath with this year, we also have an Alien bubble bar this year to bath with. The two together would make a cool ‘bath cocktail’ in my opinion!
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.
Besties bubble bar
Bubbly love from your mini me, hold this uplifting citrusy bubble bar under running water for a foam filled bath.
Buzzy Mum soap
Enjoy the sights and scents of a summer’s day, from dawn to dusk and into the glorious warm night, in your bathtub.
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.’
This is a lip mask. A lip mask is a new (ish) way for hydrating your lips. Just like sheet masks hydrate your face. I’ve been using lip masks from various different K Beauty brands for a couple of years and use them pretty regularly on my self care days.
“Softer, smoother lips are a must whether it’s Valentine’s Day or not, because who doesn’t want kissable lips all the time? Hot Lips is made with loads of glycerin so it’s mega hydrating, while natural ground bamboo stem extract delivers a super-fine polish to scrub away any unwanted dry bits. Plus, it tastes like sweet cherries. But don’t take our word for it; ask a willing friend to try it out.
And this is their instructions for use on the uk lush online purchase product website.
“Designed for one-time use, simply pop the mask over your lips and let the ingredients to get to work for a few minutes. Once you’re done, buff the product across your lips until you feel the bamboo. Then, lick your lips or rinse away any residue.”
The scent of this lip mask is so good. It smells like another Valentines product from two years ago called ‘Kiss Me Quick’. It’s what i would call a lipstick mixed with cherry. I love the smell.
So on to how it works. So i unpacked it from its little envelope.
It feels nice. I noticed it doesn’t have any liquid, or gel, nor any kind of serum on it or in it.
I thought that was different for a lip mask. The ones i’ve tried weren’t dry like this. At the very least it shoulve been damp. So it wouldn’t stick to my lips whatsoever. Lush’s instructions say to ‘put it on your lips for a few minutes’ and let it moisturize or hydrate yoyr lips.
So since it didnt dtay on i tried just holding it in place with my hand. I even tried it lying down so it would stay on my lips.
Nothing happens. Literally nothing. My lips were dry just like they were before i put the mask on.
There wasnt even any product on my lips. There wasnt even any residue! How is this even possible?
I tried wetting it a little bit. Nope. No change. Still didnt stick to my lips.
Im so confused as to how this works.
Hmm. There was what looked like liquid or color that seeped into the envelope that it was in. Maybe thats the issue? Dunno.
It sure is cool looking in the sun!
I dont know its possible im just being dumb but i didnt really get it. 🤷🏽♀️Id rate it a 2 out of 5 rating.
Heres my Demo video i nade for you showing how it looks and feels close up.
LUSH Times, Spring 2004 description: Temptation smells like a superior sort of apple pie, fresh from the oven, spiced with a sprinkling of cinnamon and scented with a hint of orange blossom for a ‘nouvelle cuisine’ approach. Like the best sort of apple pie, we put fresh, organic apples into our Temptation soap and add a drop of uplifting myrrh essential oil. Despite its name there’s nothing sinful about it, except that it’s a bit more expensive than most of our soaps, but if we will go putting fresh apples and phenomenally expensive myrrh in it, what do you expect?
Lush Times 2003 description: Temptation is our apple pie soap made with fresh, organic apple juice and spicy cinnamon leaf oil. Apples contain organic acids which are good for stimulating sedentary people. Picture this, .Adam, get up off your backside and come over here.. .No, can’t be bothered.. .Here, have an apple then.. Temptation soap smells sharp, refreshing and spicy. Just wave it under someone.s nose when you want to tempt them into the shower with you.
Apples and cinnamon. Reminds me of Autumn and good apple cider. The big slab of temptation soap had slices of apples all over the top incase you get a piece with what looks like leaves…. It is! I don’t know why this was ever disconinued because it seemed to be such a popular soap. Everyone used to post how much they loved it. I guess they had to make room for new stuff is all I can think of. I loved this soap! It smells like a real red apple. The soap had a bit more cinnamon scent than the shower gel, otherwise they smell similar.
5 out of 5 soap
Ingredients: Water, Propylene Glycol, Fresh Apple Juice, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Sodium Stearate, Perfume, Myrrh Resinoid, Orange Blossom Absolute, Cinnamon Leaf Oil, Apple Rings, Red Wax m, Glycerine, Sodium Chloride, Gardenia Extract, Colour 42045.
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.
