Lush Rocket Bubble Bar
Advantages: Lovely scent, fun shape, reusable
Disadvantages: None for me
I was super excited when I found out about Lush's new Christmas range. My favourite store releases a number of new products for the festive season, often to go with a particular theme such as 'traditional Christmas' or 'sweet shop'. This year there was no theme as such, but a number of unusual and innovative products.
After the success of the Magic Wand reusable bubble bar last year, Lush have re-released that product plus another two. One of these was the Rocket bubble bar, which can also be used for numerous baths.
As the name suggests, Rocket is in the shape of a rocket, bright eye-catching blue in colour with a trail of orange and red raffia flames. To use, simply hold under a running tap to allow some of the mixture to dissolve and create lovely bubbles. You can then leave it on the side to be used another day.
The Rocket is suitable for vegans and is scented with a fresh sweet fragrance. The addition of fire tree, clove bud and ginger oils add a festive twist and depth and help you relax and warm up. I didn't think that the result was particularly Christmassy, but I liked it nevertheless and at least it means you can get a few without having to worry about using them up over Christmas!
I used the bar in my bath as instructed and put it on the side to dry. The water turned a lovely deep blue colour and there were a couple of (edible, dissolving) stars floating around in the water too! There was a good amount of bubbles, more than I expected, as I normally find that the reusable bubble bars produce fewer bubbles than the non-reusable ones.
The refreshing sweet citrusy scent was very pleasant and lasted throughout the bath. I sometimes find that the scent of Lush bathing products fades in the water but that wasn't the case with this one. After my bath, I still had to apply moisturiser to my dry skin but the product hadn't actually dried out or irritated my skin.
After my bath I noticed that my rocket looked almost as good as new and though Lush state that you should expect around three baths from it, I estimate I will be able to get at least five, and in fact I saw a post on the forum from someone who said that theirs lasted for six baths. Therefore, the initially expensive price of £4.95 seems much better value for money.
I think this is a lovely bathing product and would be an ideal stocking filler for children, as well as adults. Who wouldn't want a rocket in their bath?!
