Lush released two bubble bars this festive season that are made in manufacturing as long Yule Logs – Candy Mountain and Yog Nog. Yog Nog is made in a similar fashion to a Battenberg cake, with different layers being coated in ‘icing’ and assembled together to give a checkerboard design. The log is then cut into slices to be sold in stores.
The Yog Nog scent is arguably the most delicious scent Lush have ever done. Lush products often look like food, but when they smell like food too it only makes them more tempting to eat! The Yog Nog scent smells of sweet caramel and buttery toffee and really is mouth-wateringly comforting.
The scent is made up of spicy, stimulating Clove Bud Oil, mixed with sweet Ylang Ylang Oil and a hint of Gardenia. Whilst this trio doesn’t really sound like they’re going to create a indulgent toffee smell, when you add warming and spicy Cinnamon and Nutmeg powders you can see where it comes from!
As you can probably tell, Yog Nog features a massive amount of Cocoa and Shea Butters to make it extra moisturising and softening. It’s also incredibly soothing due to the addition of both Soya Milk Powder and Soya Yoghurt which also help to give the product it’s creamy consistency.
Because this particular bar is really soft, it’s easily crumbled into the tub but you might find it’s more of a smush than a crumble. Once the water starts running, it turns a creamy yellow colour as it mixes with the bubble bar. Because of the butter content, Yog Nog doesn’t actually bubble up that much but the bubbles it does produce are supremely soft. Once the bath is filled, the colour is very pale but the scent is very much still prevalent throughout, helping you enjoy a beautifully luxurious soak.
I feel no need to moisturise/use a body lotion after using this bar, as my skin is more than adequately conditioned, it’s so smooth and soft and the scent seems to stick around too!
I’m so thankful Lush have decided to revive this delightful scent and I hope that more Yog Nog products are released in the future! I’ll definitely be getting my hands on the Yog Nog Bath Bomb that’s currently available online as part of the Community Favourites and I cannot wait!
