When I first saw pictures of this product along with the rest of the range, I wondered what on earth the number six could possibly have to do with Valentine’s Day? I know Lush were thinking of doing numbered bubble bars, but was there a joke I was missing out on? Seems a bit random just to do the number six? Then it finally hit me. Take two sixes and turn the second upside down… jesus this really is the dirtiest V-day range yet isn’t it.
Six comes in either a yellow and red version, or a yellow and blue version but both smell exactly the same. Scented with Clove Bud Oil and Ylang-Ylang they share the same aroma with the Yog Nog Family. For those unfamiliar with Yog Nog, it’s a buttery and rich aroma of caramel, toffee and butterscotch and is really decedent and heavenly. Slightly spicy, thanks to the Clove Bud but the Ylang Ylang really sweetens the deal. There’s a slight difference between this and the recent release over Christmas, Yog Nog Yule Log Bubble Bar, as I feel like Six smells a little less sweet but it’s still mostly the same scent we all know and love.
As a reusable bubble bar, you don’t crumble it but you just hold it under the running tap water until you feel like you’ve used an adequate amount. The shape of Six made it slightly inconvenient as your hands end up being so close to the stream and I ended up getting splashed by the hot water but perhaps with a less forceful tap it’ll be okay. As we all know by now I’m excessive when it comes to bubble bars and I used about half each time I bathed with Six, but you can easily get around 5 decent baths out of each one.
Each Six created a mountain of bubbles that filled my bath and covered the water. The red and yellow six created a warm orange colour whereas the blue and yellow turned the water a pale green. If I had to choose I think I preferred the warm orange as it suits the comforting scent more.
Whilst I was holding the bubble bars under the running tap, the scent really took off and filled my bathroom, which gave me high hopes for it to stick around, however sadly by the time I had jumped in it had vanished.
The water actually felt really luxuriously soft and almost oily, so I was expecting my skin to be really moisturised once I was out, and whilst I wasn’t exactly moisturised, my skin did feel really smooth afterward. Sadly again, the scent didn’t remain on my skin either, which was a real disappointment.
In conclusion, I felt a bit underwhelmed by this bubble bar, I was expecting Yog Nog heaven but that wasn’t the case. Yog Nog is a scent that deserves to be strong and powerful! I just want more!
