Incase you weren’t aware, Lush do parties. They’ve been doing them in stores for a while now, but recently Lush Parties had a revamp – which included some exclusive products you can only get if you’re having a party! Luckily I managed to get my hands on a couple all for myself!
Along with two adorable bath bombs, a shower jelly and numbered bubble bars, Lush created five different coloured balloon shaped reusable bubble bars. I could have picked pink, purple, silver or green but I went for the gold coloured balloon! As a reusable bubble bar, there’s no crumbling involved, you just simply hold the balloon under the running tap water until you’re happy to put it down and save it for another use. I reckon you could definitely get at least 3 or 4 decent baths out of one of these!
You may be thinking that’s not many for a reasonably sized reusable bubble bar but I’m afraid I didn’t actually get that many bubbles out of mine, and I used approximately half! I’m not saying there wasn’t enough, there was, I just expected more. Saying that, a few swishes of the bar through the bath water itself managed to create a fair bit more.
I also expected the gold glitter to be blended throughout the orange bar but it’s sadly just an outer coating, meaning you’ll be sparkle-less after the first bath. Luckily the water took on a bright orangey-yellow colour almost instantly after running over the product, which of course will feature in your remaining baths too.
Once I’d put the product down and prepared to jump in, I noticed that the scent was disappearing fast. The bubble bar itself is actually fairly potent with it’s zesty scent comprised of Lime and Grapefruit Oils. Both of these citrus aromas blends well with the other and although it’s not the most interesting and exciting of smells, it’s refreshing and uplifting.
After my bath, my skin looked fresh and radiant as Lime and Grapefruit Oils are known to be antiseptic and enzymically cleansing, breaking down any dirt and dead skin cells on the skin’s surface, but there was almost no sign of the scent on my skin.
All in all, Party Balloon Gold is an okay bubble bar, but it’s really nothing special. I wish the scent was a little different, or at least stuck around a little longer and I kinda wish it was sparkling gold throughout! It is a gorgeous looking novelty product, but there are better party exclusives to choose.
