Advantages: Everything, nice scent, value for money
Disadvantages: Doesn't melt a 100% properly
One of the presents I get off my Mum every year is a great big goody box of Lush things. In Weston Super Mare where I currently live I don't have a Lush store sadly but in Coventry where I was brought up and where my parents still live they do thankfully so I always demand if you like some goodies from there!
I had a huge box of goodies this year and in the box was one of these Christmas Eve Melts, of course I didn't get mine till Christmas day and I never waste my Lush products and keep them as 'specials' as they are so pricey so I used mine New Years Eve as a bit of a treat!
This came to me in a plastic see through bag and was a nice big sized bubble bar, in fact when I looked at the huge size of it I did think I maybe break it in half which I did actually do at first but ended up throwing the whole lot in and decided to be extravagant with myself.
So its round, thick and damp and dense to the touch. Its a rich dark blue in colour and with a yellow half moon section within it. I thought it actually didn't look that special compared to some Lush offerings but I though it smelt nice and fresh so I split it up and popped it under running taps.
This turned my water a sort of dark green colour with no glitter or anything like that in it, which is something I was pleased about as I hate the way that some Lush products scruff up my bath and after all I wasn't in my own bath but my parents!
This though was a weird one for me. It gave me absolutely loads of bubbles and froth and I certainly could have easily got away with using just half of it and those bubbles stayed put well over an hour of my soaking. My water felt ever so soft and made my skin feel like silk in it and I loved the wonderful fragrance of Jasmine and Ylang Ylang which to me seemed very soothing without being artificially fragranced or too cloying...I just felt really relaxed in this, shaved my bits and pieces within it and sometimes when I bath with Lush products even though I don't wet my hair hair in the water my hair can feel dried out and toilet brush like and this really didn't affect my hairs condition at all.
However the negative with this one for me was that even though I scrunched up and split the bar up some bits of it never melted properly in my water and I was sitting on them and then when I finished my bath I had to really rinse the lumps out though I was pleased that the rich colour never stained my mums white bathtub or made it feel greasy because my poor old parents shower in the tub and could slip and slide and break their necks if not careful!
My skin though was left feeling fantastic and smooth and really supple and cared for. My parents commented how wonderful I smelt after I had used it and the fragrance of this product really did linger on my skin beautifully for hours as did the bathroom I used it in.
I absolutely loved this bubble bar even though it all didn't melt properly though and feel this is a lovely treat for anyone being it male or female really however it is only a seasonal product and currently not on the website on sale now though it can still be found instores and online from other sellers and individually bought costs about £3.75 a bubble bar.
Available from Lush stores.
