Lush has been going pretty much crazy lately with their Lush Labs launches. I mean, I can’t keep up. Honestly. Anyway, recently Lush launched a collection with their Lush Party Exclusive products. These are products you can only get when you do a party at Lush (in the UK I believe). So when I heard they were available online for a limited amount of time I was pretty excited to get my hands on it. In the end I just bought one product from the collection: the Party Balloon Pink Reusable Bubble Bar. It looks flippin’ adorable and I always love pink when it comes to bath products. When my package came in, this was the first product I ended up using because I just couldn’t wait to see what it would look like in the water. Since it’s just available for a limited amount of time I felt like today would be a great day to share my review about it with you guys. So if you’re interested in finding out more about this adorable and exclusive bubble bar, make sure you continue reading this post!
The Lush Party Balloon Pink Reusable Bubble Bar is shaped like a little balloon and comes on a stick. Which is also pink by the way. The balloon itself is pretty heavy and, in the one I have, the stick isn’t attached very well. Thanks to that the stick has fallen out of the balloon. Obviously you can just put it back, but you do need to keep that in mind when you’re using it. Since this is a reusable bubble bar you have to hold it under the running tab without crumbling it and you don’t want it to fall completely into the water. Anyway, long story short: the stick is loose, it’s no big deal but you do have to keep it in mind.
The Party Balloon Reusable Bubble Bar is available in a couple different colours. To be honest, it was pretty difficult to just buy one of them. For me the pink colour was definitely the prettiest. Considering the way my water will look when I use it, pink is definitely the way to go. The balloon is bedazzled with a layer of silver glitter all over it. This washes away pretty easily, so after using the balloon once the glitter will be gone.
The size of the bubble bar is pretty decent. I definitely think that it can last you a minimum of three baths and a maximum of about five or six baths. It obviously all depends on how sparingly you use it, but it does last you quite a while. You definitely are getting your money’s worth.
Lush Party Balloon Pink Reusable Bubble Bar – £5,95
Lush is very short on their description when it comes to this bubble bar. All they say is the following:
Pop bubbles instead of balloons with this reusable bubble bar! This upliftingly bright fragrance will make you feel light on your feet, so pick your perfect colour and get ready to party – just don’t get carried away!”
The main ingredients when it comes to the scent are grapefruit and lime oil. There’s also some perfume in here. I’d describe the scent as fruity and sweet. It does definitely meet my expectations of what a pink bubble bar is going to smell like, but it also has something special to it. It’s not crazy unique, but it still is really, really nice. I’m a big fan!
Like I said you can use the reusable bubble bars multiple times. You can do that with normal bubble bars too, but the reusable ones are especially made for reusing (hence the name). I’m a real big fan of that. It does mean that the texture is a little different than you’re used to from a normal bubble bar. It’s more solid and a bit more ‘dry’. It’s not made to break off and crumble into the tub. In my opinion this formula is really nice and a lot easier to use for me.
So, let’s talk about its tub-action. What I did is I held the ballon underneath the running faucet for a couple of minutes. Almost instantly the bath water started to turn pink and bubbles started to form. Aside from the glitter washing off the bubble bar, nothing much seemed to happen to the ballon itself. It didn’t seem to shrink and it didn’t break or anything like that. And even though I apparently didn’t use much of the product, my whole bath ended up looking really amazing.
The pink colour of the water was much brighter than I expected. It was bright, bright pink and that’s definitely one of my favourite colours when it comes to my baths. I also think that the amount of bubbles that ended up being formed was really impressive. They were nice and stiff bubbles and they carried the amazing scent of this bubble bar.
While sitting in the bath, the bubbles do slowly but surely start to disappear. This always happens with bubbles in my tub, so it didn’t surprise or disappoint me at all. The scent filled the room and was really nice. It wasn’t overpowering in any way, but it was really comforting. It’s a sweet and bright scent, yet it helps to relax me.
All in all I think that the Lush Pink Party Balloon Reusable Bubble Bar is a really fun bubble bar to try. I like the colour a lot, the glitter is really pretty and the scent is absolutely amazing to me. The glitter does disappear after one use, but even without the glitter this bubble bar is a whole lot of fun! I know it might not be available anymore online by the time you guys are reading this, but you can always get this if you host a Lush party!
With that being said I think it’s about time to end today’s post. Thank you guys so much for reading another one of my reviews and be sure to let me know what you think of this super festive bubble bar!
