Lush New Bubble Bars 2021 First Impressions

 Hey everyone! 

Welcome to a brand new blog post! I recently popped into Lush White Rose with Luke to try out their new bubble bars. We did also pop into Lush Leeds Spa due to White Rose not having all of them. I thought that today, I would talk to you all about the brand new bubble bars.

Apple Crumble 

Take a bite, dearie. Who doesn't love an Apple? They keep the doctor away! I love the design of this bar as it looks like an Apple but in bubble bar form. This bar contains, Fresh Apple Pulp, Myrrh Resinoid, Orange Flower Absolute and Cinnamon Leaf Oil. This creates a sort of refreshing crisp yet light Red Apple scent with a touch of spice. I love anything spice and I adore Apple Crumbles so this one drew me instantly in. This bar is actually a Bubbleroon as this product contain Shea and Cocoa Butters in the middle which make a luxurious bath which helps to soften and nourish your skin. I did wish that this bar did have a tiny bit more of an Apple scent to it but overall I love the design and the smell of this one.

Castle In The Clouds

Surfing like a castle in the cloud! Who doesn't want to bathe in something that is as light as a cloud? This bar contains, Geranium Oil, Jasmine Absolute and Benzoin Resinoid. This to me created a light sweet floral scent. I love floral scents but sadly, I don't think that this one is for me. I got a weird mixture of floral, faint berry and sort of a cream based note. Maybe I need to sniff this one again but honestly, its not my favourite.

Frozen Reusable 

 Let it go into the tub! Summer is slowly approaching and who doesn't love something that will chill you right down? This bar contains, Spearmint Oil and Fine Sea Salt. I believe this is the same scent as the Cream Egg Bubble Bar but I could be wrong. I love the addition of Salt (but then again I am quite salty in life) but I do also understand that flakes of salt can create a bit of a mess. I love the Mint scent due to it being refreshing and cooling but I do have a couple of Polar Bear Plunge Bubble Bars which are a similar scent so it may take me a while to get around to this bubble bar. If you love anything Mint then I do suggest that you try this Bubble Bar.

Lemon Crumble 

Fancy a slice? I love Lemons. Anyone close to me will know that I have a weird talent of being able to eat slices of Lemon whole without any reaction. This product definitely enhanced my love for Lemons when I first saw it. I adore how it looks exactly like a fresh luscious Lemon. This product contains, Sicilian Lemon Oil and Fresh Lemon which creates an intense zingy yet fresh Lemon scent. This bar is also a Bubbleroon due to the Shea and Cocoa Butters in the middle of it which create a moisturising bath so when you get out of the bath, everyone will be fancying a slice of you!

Matcha Roll 

Who doesn't love a Matcha Latte? Before I get into the scent of this Roll, I have to admit, I was drawn in by the swirls of vibrant green mixed with the start white which makes up the rest of the bubble bar. This product looked so mesmerising in the store. This roll contains, Cardamom, Persian Lime and Almond Essential Oils, Tonka and Sesame Seed Absolutes and Green Tea Powder. This all combines to create a sort of creamy Coconut and earthy but slightly spicy fragrance which I absolutely adore. Its a match for me and Matcha Roll.

Mrs Whippy 

Whip it real good! Who doesn't want to bathe in what is essentially ice cream goodness? Mrs Whippy doesn't just look the part, but smells the part too! This bar contains, Buchu and Almond Essential Oil, Tonka Absolutes and Fine Sea Salt. If you have smelt Candy Rain then imagine the same exact scent in a bubble bar! I think that for me this one will grow on me as I love using Candy Rain but only in small doses as for me the sort of Vanilla Milkshake-esque scent is something I have to be in a particular mood for.

Puppy Love 

And they call it Puppy Love! Who doesn't love a cute little Puppy? This cute little friend looks so mood enhancing and so is the scent! This delightful doggo contains, Sicilian Red Mandarin and Almond Essential Oils which create a very sherbet-y sort of sharp Raspberry scent. The best sort of way I could describe it is a sort of like Pink Lemonade but in the sense that there's more Pink than Lemonade. I absolutely adore this scent. I wasn't sure on how I would feel about it but when I smelt it I fell in love with it... Its just so sharp and fruity and I think it would be amazing to use on a fresh Spring morning.

Rainbow 

When you use this Bubble Bar, you definitely know that you're not in Kansas anymore! Who doesn't love a good Rainbow. When I first saw this online, I honestly thought it was a reincarnation of the old favourite, Dorothy. Therefore, when I saw that it wasn't. I was a little bit disappointed. Again, as someone who is very very queer, I love that Lush has created a Rainbow based Bubble Bar. This beautiful bar contains, Sicilian Lemon and Lemon Myrtle Oils and Benzoin Resinoid. This creates a sort of muted fruity Lemon scent. It's not as strong as Lemon Crumble but I think it would be a great bar to use when you need something to perk you up in the morning!

Raspberry Blower 

Go on, give it a blow! Who doesn't love a multi-purpose product? Not only can you create bubbles but you can also create hours of fun just by simply blowing into the hole. This product contains Bergamot, Grapefruit and Almond Essential Oils which creates a slightly sweet, slightly floral sherbet scent. If you have had anything that is Space Girl scented then you will love this bar as it shares the scent! As you may know, I adore the Space Girl scent so I adored this bar when I first sniffed it and loved how you could do more than one thing with it.

Support Bubble 

Not only do we need Support Bubbles during these troubling times, but we also need bubbles to support us during these troubling times too. This product contains, Grapefruit and Petitgrain Oils which create a sort of fruity slightly herbal scent. Sadly, I think its one that I have to be really in the mood for so I'm still a bit unsure on how I feel about it. I think that this one again may grow on me the more I sniff it.

Twilight 

Let the sun go down whilst you dip into the calming waters that surround you. This bar looks amazing. I love how it actually looks like the sun is going down. It's fabulous! This scent contains, Lavender and Ylang Ylang Oils, Tonka Absolute, Benzoin Resinoid and Lavender Powder. This all creates a sweet lavender scent. If you have enjoyed any Twilight based product like the Spray or Bath Bomb then you will adore this. I quite like this for when I need a little relaxing, saying that, I think there is another relaxing Bubble Bar in this range that I prefer.

The Great Wave 

Woah, you're going on a ride of your life! This bar is massive. Not only does it look like the great wave but it feels it in the palm of your hand. This bar contains Jasmine Absolute, Ylang Ylang Oil, Fine and Coarse Sea Salts. I think that his bar would be amazing to use throughout Spring or when you want something that is light and floral. I like this but I sadly don't think its my favourite out of the range.

Vesuvio* 

Be careful otherwise it will spit all over you! Since I was little, I was always fascinated with Mount Vesuvius thus having one that I can use in my bath enlightens me from within. This bar contains, Almond Essential, Cinnamon Leaf and Brazilian Orange Oils which create a lovely slightly citrus spicy Almond scent. I normally don't like Almond scents but the spice cuts through the sweetness which is what intrigues me to use it and see what it is like. If you liked Cinders then you will like this.

Worry Monster* 

This Little Monster will never make you worry again! As someone who suffers from an Anxiety disorder and has constant worries every moment of every day, I was intrigued to see how this bar would smell like. Not only is this bar cute as hell like most little human monsters but also smells divine. As I mentioned earlier I thought there was more of a relaxing bar than Twilight, and this is that bar! This bar contains, Lavender, Ylang Ylang and Fennel Oils and Cocoa Butter which creates a soothing yet slightly herbal nourishing bath which I adore. It is an amazing scent to relax with!
