Last year I fell in love with the Lush Christmas launch which lead to a whole Lush craze. But the one item I loved the most from last years Christmas collection was by far the amazing Magic Wand Reusable Bubble Bar. I loved bubble bars at the time and this one was by far the best one I had ever tried. So I was over the moon when I heard it came back this year. I still had 1,5 Magic Wand left that I used very sparingly, so I’m happy I can go all out now. Since I didn’t review it last year and since it changed a bit in terms of looks I decided it might be fun to review this years Lush Magic Wand Reusable Bubble Bar. So if you’re interested in finding out what I like about it, make sure you continue reading this post!
So let’s take a proper look at this years’ Magic Wand Reusable Bubble Bar from Lush. I didn’t expect Lush to change anything about this bubble bar since this is such a popular product and a staple for lots of us. But even though I thought they wouldn’t, they did change the look of the magic wand. Instead of a wooden stick the star now rests on a pink stick. And that’s not all, the star itself has changed too. Instead of being flat it now has a layered look and a lot more glitter on it. I definitely don’t hate those changes, but it still surprised me that they did that to be honest.
One thing I noticed almost immediately is that the price of the Magic Wand has gone down. If you’re familiar with Lush, you’d know that that’s something that never happens. Prices go up each year, not down. To me this was a sign that this years’ Magic Wand might be a bit smaller. From the looks of it it’s definitely smaller. It seems to be a bit thicker, but in weight I’m almost completely sure it’s not as heavy as the old Magic Wand. Who knows, maybe it hasn’t changed in weight and the decrease is price is because of the pink stick instead of the wooden stick with the little bells, but I don’t think that’s what happened here.
Anyway, I still like the way the Magic Wand looks. It’s still bubblegum pink and very festive. Smaller or not, it’s definitely one of my all time favourite bubble bars from Lush.
Even though I already know what the Magic Wand Reusable Bubble Bar is like, I still thought it might be fun to read through the description Lush provides on their website.
If you’re dreaming of a pink Christmas, your wishes are about to come true! Envelop yourself in sweet-smelling bubbles and drift off to the land of snow fairies. This wand has the magic of reusability; when you’re done creating your bubblegum kingdom, leave this bubble bar out to dry to cast spells over your bath again and again.
When you wish upon a star,
Mounds of bubbles are never far,
Bright pink baths your heart desires,
Will come to you.”
Obviously this all sounds very appealing. Like we already know, this bubblegum pink bubble bar also has a bubblegum smell. It’s snow fairy scented. This means that it’s super, super sweet and therefore definitely not for everybody. I know that lot’s of people absolutely hate the snow fairy scent, but to me it’s just amazing. I absolutely adore that scent. It’s pure Christmas to me and I love to surround myself with that scent all year round.
Without further ado, let’s take a look at the tub when I use the Magic Wand Reusable Bubble Bar. This bubble bar can be used over and over again. A little bit of it goes a very long way. The old ones lasted me 4 to 5 baths. I haven’t used the new one this often just yet so I have no idea how long it will last, but I’m sure you can get 3 to 4 baths out of it.
As you can tell the Magic Wand creates a ton of bubbles. Nice and stiff bubbles. But what’s even more exciting is the pink coloured bath water it leaves behind. Yes I’m a sucker for pink, I admit it. And I love sitting in a pink bath. The very first time you use the bubble bar this pink is also decorated with silver sparkles everywhere. After the first use most of the sparkles are gone, so that’s more of a one time extra.
The scent on this bubble bar is nice and strong. The entire bath room smells like snow fairy and I can’t imagine anything more amazing than that. If you combine this bubble bar with the snow fairy shower gel and the matching snow fairy body conditioner you’re really good to go. You’ll end up like a little snow fairy yourself!
Obviously the outcome of this review is really positive. I absolutely adore the Lush Magic Wand Reusable Bubble Bar. I always have and I always will. They can change the looks of it, but the scent luckily stayed the same. It’s as amazing as it has always been and I love it to flippin’ pieces. I’m definitely going to stock up on this before it leaves again! I can’t go through the year without having the Magic Wand by my side! That’s a big no-no!
With that being said I’m ending today’s review. Thank you guys so much for reading it and be sure to let me know what you think of the snow fairy scent from Lush. Do you love it or hate it?
