Pop is a new product for this years Father’s Day and is a fairly sizeable bubble bar. It’s designed around the pop art style of Roy Litchenstein, features popping candy and is obviously in reference to a term used to call your father, pop.
Pop features a scent made from Buchu, Lemon and Bergamot Oils, and is bright, refreshing and fruity in nature. Fragrant Buchu Oil has a strong blackcurrant and minty aroma which pairs with the more citrusy nature of the other two essential oils well. Sicilian Lemon Oil adds a more sherbety note with the Bergamot adding a fresh and green element. It’s a nice scent and one that Lush continue to bring back every now and then.
Obviously as a bigger sized bubble bar, you could definitely get at least four baths out of it if you wish but, being excessive as I am, I opted to crumble up the whole thing. Before long my bath was filled with a giant mountain of soft bubbles with a fiery orange water below which looked really nice. As I said, Pop features Popping Candy in the mix but unfortunately I didn’t get to hear any crackles or pops, probably because it happened as my bath was filling up. I guess that’s why you don’t see this ingredient in bubble bars that often.
Once I was in I was pleasantly surprised at how soft and moisturising the water felt! I didn’t realise until I checked out the ingredients list but Lush have added Cocoa Butter to this bubble bar for extra skin softening quality! The fruitiness of the scent remained throughout my bath too!
Once I was out and dried off, my skin was as soft as the bubbles in my bath and still carried that uplifting scent for a good few hours later.
All in all, Pop gives you a nice bath. I think the addition of Cocoa Butter is really nice and I wish Lush added it into more of their bubble mixtures as I find they can be slightly drying. The popping candy does seem kinda pointless though.
