As my collection of Christmas products gets smaller and smaller, the posts relating to each item in the festive range have almost come to a close. I’m sorry I haven’t been able to post about every single one but some that I thought would be left until the end were quickly sold out before I got a change to grab one for myself.
One product that I fell in love with almost straight away was Puddy Holly Bubbleroon. I ended up bathing with three different puds over the festive season but I’ve waited until now (and using my last one!) to write about it.
Puddy Holly divided staff and customers over how to pronounce it’s name. Is it puddy as in ‘pudding’ or is it puddy as in ‘Buddy Holly’? I never found out the right way but I chose to go with the former. One thing most people could agree on though, was how good it smelled!
It’s scented much like a marzipan pudding, with the sweet mix of Almond Essential Oil and Tonka Absolute at the forefront of the aroma. It’s very very similar to the ‘Snowcake’ scent family and therefore the gorgeous Perle De Sal Bath Bomb, also released this year, but I’d argue that Puddy Holly has pinpointed the pure almond scent and magnified it for our pleasure. Although it also contains Bergamot and Cedarwood Oils too, I can’t say my nose can detect them behind the almond.
As a bubbleroon, it’s two halves of the product, sandwiched together with a layer of Cocoa and Shea Butters. It makes it very easily crumbled under the running water and once you’re in the bath, it makes it beautifully moisturising.
As the water fills your tub, it turns a bright and vivid green colour which stays just as pigmented as the water rises. Although I used the whole thing, it didn’t make as much bubbles as I’d hoped, but that’s probably due to the butter content. Nevertheless, it was just as inviting and I eagerly jumped in.
As soon as I was in, I felt the nourishing ingredients instantly get to work at hydrating my skin. As well as the two aforementioned butters, Puddy Holly also contains a generous amount of Almond Oil which is amazing at penetrating and nourishing the skin’s deeper layers. The scent also remained very prominent during my bath and for hours after on my skin!
Although the actual water was filled with the sparkling silver lustre that decorates the outside of the whole product, it didn’t actually stick to my skin, so if that’s not your thing then don’t worry!
In conclusion, I can safely say that Puddy Holly was a stand out for me this year and I’m really going to miss it now it’s not in the store! If there’s any justice in the world then it’ll return to us next year but with Lush you never know, so keep your fingers crossed!
