It’s a gorgeous bar for sure. The fresh ones were bright turqoiuse blue and had golden dust on the one side near the stamped name “Happy”. It looked like verdi gris. This has my vote for prettiest Lush bubble bar ever in the history of Lushdome. Happy bubble bar has a lovely, strong orange scent. And there’s also sandalwood. Now orange with sandalwood. I’ve not heard of that particular combination before I don’t think in any lush products. The sandalwood changes this citrussy wonder. The sandalwood gives it a depth. Who knew? I highly recommend this lovely (scent and looks) bubble bar. It would go with the orangey “The Sicilian” ballistic as they were both out at the same time at one point.

Times description: Our bright new turquoise blue Bubble Bar Slice is Happy by name and happy by nature, courtesy of a not inconsiderable helping of neroli oil concealed inside its attractive self. Neroli is a terrifyingly expensive essential oil, made from the flowers of the bitter orange tree, which has the ability to make people feel cheery and smile again. We add tangerine and orange blossom oils; they help too plus they are excellent skin conditioners (another reason to smile). Relaxing sandalwood gives a touch of spice to Happy’s fragrance and encourages a sense of well being. Well, what would you have called it?
Lush Spring 1999 UK description: Beautiful P Green Soap is very, very green – coloured with spinach and chlorophyll – made in a big block which looks rather like a deep, translucent freshwater pond with flowers and leaves floating on top. Fortunately, it doesn’t smell like one. However, it does have a deep, dark green scent [for those of you who smell in colour] with sandalwood, benzoin and a hint of tangerine, providing the delicious odour. Continuing the poetry theme, this one was inspired by The Owl and the Pussycat who, you may remember, went to sea in a beautiful pea green boat. (You get a slice off the 25 kilogram pond, not the whole thing, so you may get a slice of waxed flower or leaf.
(Dark leafy greens, light fruity note and slightly incensey)
Ingredients: vegetable soap, propylene glycol, water, perfume, sodium lauryl sulphate, sodium stearate, fresh spinach, sandalwood oil, tangerine oil, gardenia extract, chlorophyll, chrysanthemum flowers, labdanum.
Here’s a link to a youtube video I made of the “Big Bang” bubble bar in the tub. I like the bright, sweet citrus smell, and the colors of the blue bar itself, and the pink bath melt part in the middle…It’s irresistable to anyone, and everyone.
Lush description: It started with a bang – Start baths off with a lemon myrtle bang. Lie back and think of the universe.
I took pictures of two different bars. The pink melty part melted on the one in the photos below, but it looks kind of cool.
Ingredients: Avocado butter, perfume, grapefruit oil, organic lemon myrtle oil, tangerine oil, extra virgin olive oil (bath melt), rice syrup.
