Just before Christmas I posted about the massive Lush giftbox
that I won. I was a Lush virgin but had heard so many good things about the brand, especially their bath bombs and bubble bars. So here is my short review of the 3 Gold Rings Bubble Bar and the Lil Lush Pud Bath Bomb.
Lil Lush Pud Bath Bomb
First off I tried the Lil Lush Pud bath bomb looking forward to a Christmassy smelling fresh clean bath. I like the way it looks, and it smelt quite nice too. But I think it looks better than its use.
My nice clean bath water.
In it goes into my bath! Quite exciting… although a bit of a minging colour.
I’m sorry but this just looks completely grim and disgusting. Who would get in a bath tub full of brown water?! I really didn’t like it and found it really off putting. I want to get clean in the bath, not dirty. Lush say it contains lemon peel powder, clove powder, aloe vera extract and rose absolute, and that it smells of marzipan. The only good thing about this bath bomb is that it left my skin feeling nice and soft and moisturised, which I wasn’t expecting a bath bomb to do.
3 Gold Rings Bubble Bar
This bubble bar had a slight resemblance to a turd, but it wasn’t too off putting. It had swirls of gold and white and it smelt pretty good too. Good start.
In it goes into my bath.. my first bubble bar experience I wasn’t sure what to expect.
It soon got going and bubbles started appearing! Yipee!
Again, as with the Lil Lush Pud, it produced a rather murky looking bath water colour. But it was actually more golden than brown this time!
It was hard to take a photo of, but here is the bath water with lots of sparkly gold bits in 🙂 I like it! It didn’t actually leave my skin shimmery unfortunately, but it did leave a gold fairy dust at the bottom of my bath tub. Nice.
Overall I don’t understand what the big deal about Lush is. Who wants murky brown bath water and pays £2 for the privilege? Not me! I still have a bunch of other Lush products to try out, and I’m really hoping I fall in love with them! Maybe these two aren’t popular favourites.
What do you think of Lush? Do you like it? Overpriced?
