Recently Lush launched its Easter collection. Being the Lush-fan that I am, I obviously rushed to the nearest Lush store as soon as I could to check out the new goodies. After browsing around the store for about an hour, I collected a few goodies I wanted to try, which I showed you guys in my Lush Mother’s Day & Easter Haul. Today I’m going to be reviewing the first product that I got, the Lush Cream Egg Yellow, Blue & Pink Bubbleroon. I was so excited about this little guy that I tried it the day I got it. If you’re interested in finding out what this is like and whether or not you should rush to the store to get it, make sure you continue reading this post!
So, let’s take a look at this Bubbleroon. Bubbleroons from Lush are bubble bars with a creamy layer in between the two parts. A while ago I tried the Rose Jam Bubbleroon and that thing made me fall head over heels in love with the whole Bubbleroon concept. The thing I love so much about it is that you get the bubbles from a bubble bar, and the moisture from a luxury bath oil all at the same time. It’s basically a perfect combination of everything and I’m all in for that. So, that’s what a bubbleroon is.
The Easter collection comes with two bubbleroons. This Cream Egg with yellow, pink and blue and the Cream Egg with pink and blue. I bought both, but in today’s post I’m just going to talk about the one with the yellow, pink and blue since that’s the first one I actually tried.
The Yellow Cream Egg does look really cute. It has some adorable dots all over it and the colours look super bright and fun. They instantly give me that happy spring feeling that I have been craving ever since the weather has gotten better. Sadly the good, sunny weather is gone already, but this bubbleroon brings back a little bit of sunshine to my bathroom. So that’s something, right?!

In terms of looks I don’t think I grabbed the prettiest of the bunch. If you look at the picture of this bubbleroon on the Lush website, the dots are way bigger and the whole thing is a lot more colourful because of that. But I don’t try to look at that when I’m purchasing Lush products. After all you throw them in your bath and that slight difference in dot-size won’t make a difference.
But enough about the looks, let’s talk about the scent and the way it works. But before we do that, I first want to read through what Lush has to say about this adorable egg:
If you’re looking for a cracking good bath, a Cream Egg is the way to go. As you crumble this yellow, blue and pink mint-chocolate scented bubbleroon under running water, Fair Trade organic cocoa and Fair Trade shea butters melt, turning the water into an irresistibly softening, sweet lagoon. Spearmint tones the skin and refreshes your mood as you soak, making you feel eggsellent. Get crumbling!”
If that doesn’t sound amazing, I don’t know what does to you. And I can always appreciate a pun, so good job Lush!
According to Lush their Cream Egg Bubbleroon smells like mint-chocolate. So when I went in for my first sniff I was expecting some chocolate scented thing with a hint of fresh mint. And that’s not what I got. Instead, this had a very strong mint scent and little to non chocolate-related scent at all. I don’t know what is supposed to smell remotely like chocolate, because I don’t smell it.
Even though I don’t smell the chocolate, I do like the scent of this bubbleroon. It’s very fresh and minty. Not minty in a toothpaste kind of way, but it is definitely a strong mint scent. You have to like that in order to like what this bubbleroon smells like, because other wise this isn’t going to be a hit for you. For me it is a nice scent. It’s refreshing and it smells very clean to me. I like the feeling of that.
The ingredient list of this bubbleroon isn’t necessarily impressive. It has SLS in it as third ingredient, which is drying. It does have some butters in it like cocoa butter and shea butter and some spearmint oil for the scent, but that’s mostly it. It also has some perfume and colourants in it and some other jazz, but nothing that will make this super hydrating like some other bubble bars and bubbleroons are.
In the tub this Cream Egg bubbleroon didn’t look as pretty as I expected. I could’ve known what to expect since this bubbleroon is mainly yellow, so it will leave a yellow bath, but somehow I didn’t think that would happen. And well, yellow bath water isn’t the best look in my opinion. It does look a slight bit like urine. And once you see that in it, you can’t un-see it. So if you are like me and you’re not that into yellow bath water, you might want to keep that in mind while purchasing these Cream Eggs and go for the pink and blue edition instead of this yellow one.
In terms of bubbles I don’t think this is the most bubbly product ever. For the record: I used one side of the bubbleroon. Maybe if you use the entire thing you might get more bubbles, but this is all I got. I have to admit that I didn’t try super hard to get an enormous amount of bubbles, but I have seen more impressive products from Lush when it comes to bubbles.
The scent was nice and balanced throughout the entire bath. It wasn’t too overpowering, but it was definitely there all the way through. I like that about it. It smells good and it makes me feel happy. The bubbleroon didn’t do an awful lot when it comes to making my skin feel soft, not like the Rose Jam Bubbleroon, but it didn’t feel drying either.
All in all I think that the Lush Easter Cream Egg (Yellow, Pink & Blue) Bubbleroon is a fun product. I like bubbleroons and I like that it’s shaped like an egg. The spearmint scent is really amazing in my opinion and I like that you can use these bubbleroons two times. In the future I would prefer going for the pink & blue version since I don’t love the yellow bath water, but aside from that I’m definitely not disappointed by this fun and colourful egg.
And that pretty much concludes today’s post. Thank you guys so much for reading it and be sure to let me know if you have already bought something from the Easter collection from Lush and if so, what are you favourites?
