Lush Magic Wand Bubble Bar
Advantages: Can get several uses out of this, Snow Fairy scent, value for money
Disadvantages: Can be messy
I have recently been treating myself to a lot of Lush products and this Magic Wand is one of those. I was looking at the bubble bars in the shop as I have used one in the past and loved the result, and as I love my baths then I love any kind of products that creates lots of lovely smelling bubbles!
I was quite surprised when I saw the price of this one... £4.95, as I thought you could only use the bubble bars once or twice (if you chop them in half) and all the other bars are priced at around £3. However, it was when a member of staff came over and told me I could get more uses out of this one than you can with the other bubble bars they sell when I realised why it costs this much. The main difference being that this is considerably bigger than the others and it is also on a stick, hence the 'wand' in the title. It also has pink ribbon and a silver bell attached, just to give it more of a magic wand effect when you're waving it (I'm guessing kids would like this!) For those like me who are fairly new to Lush products though may not have known you can use this several times, as it doesn't actually state this anywhere in the shop, like it does on their website.
The product is a very sweet candy like smell, just like candy floss, and is a solid version of their Snow Fairy shower gel. I was already aware that Snow Fairy products are only sold around Christmas time but I didn't realise how popular it was! The member of staff told me they had sold lots already and apparently customers kept asking them when they are starting to sell their Snow Fairy products again. So if you are one of these Snow Fairy loving fans then I would definitely recommend this product to you as it smells exactly the same as the shower gel and other Snow Fairy scented products. (I went around and smelt them).
The member of staff actually tested this product out infront of me with a jug of water which is what actually made me want to buy it even more. She advised me to wave the wand under the hot running tap and to keep waving it under as my bath was running if I required more bubbles. The longevity of this product therefore really depends on how much you use it for each bath and how many bubbles you like to have. I like to have a lot of bubbles and I got about 8 uses out of the wand.
It also turns the water slightly pink and so the more you use the more pink the water goes. I'm sure young girls would love it!
As soon as I waved the wand under my tap the bathroom suddenly smelt gorgeous! I left the door open whilst the bath was running and you could even smell the Snow Fairy in the next room. I definitely think this magic wand is great value for money, it may seem a lot at first but when you compare it to the prices of the other bubble bars where you only get one or two uses out of them, it really seems quite cheap.
It creates a lot of bubbles and they last ages, they don't just disappear after being in the bath for only 5 minutes like some cheap bubble baths do. It also leaves your skin smelling lovely for a few hours after too, and so you don't necessarily need to use any other Lush products with this such as bath bombs.
The only bad thing about this Magic Wand is where to store it after using it. As it will be wet then the pink will transfer to wherever you keep it. I kept mine on the little lush paper bag that I bought it in, on the side of the bath, but after a couple uses the bag just started to fall apart and so the tiles in the bathroom that it was sitting on would turn pink. Thankfully this doesn't stain and can easily be washed off, but it is quite messy!
Summary: If you're a fan of Snow Fairy then you will love this!
