LUSH Sparkly Pumpkin bubble bar

Usually, Sundays are dressed in Lush on my blog but since there are currently so many LE products that I want to write about, and I am also trying out a couple of their other products, I decided to give them a little more space. Meaning, there's a chance that you'll be reading about them much more… And if you are wondering if I am in any way affiliated with them, the answer is „I wish!“

a new Lush bag is always a good sig ;)

Today I am going back to my Lush roots…

The reason I said that is because, in my opinion Lush experience, in most cases, starts with their bath products. I mean… All those fancy colors, glitter, shapes… What is there not to love? ;) That is how I got into Lush, and that is how I met this bubble bar- Lush Sparkly Pumpkin.

It is a glittery bronze and gold little pumpkin which was launched as a perfect „welcome“ to fall and Halloween. You can guess that it is a part of the Halloween LE collection and that is why I am writing about it now. There are some more left on their webshops and in their stores, so if you decide to buy one, I wanted to do this review.

This 100 g bubble bar costs 39 kunas in Croatia which is about 5.06 Euros/4 GBP/6.32$. A bit much, but any Lush junkie knows that that is their standard bubble bar price.

Its apperance is super cute. Starting from the shape of it and with the fact that it is frosted with bronze and gold glitter… Ugh… It was just adorable for me. Yes, it was a fall item but I think that its glowy appearance is perfect for the holidays, too. If you are worried that all this glitter will stain your bath tub too much, don't. It is beautiful but it disappears in water, so much, that I was sad not to see it anywhere.

Its scent is amazing for me, which wasn't really surprising since I love almost anything with ylang ylang. Lush says that it is a combination of ylang ylang and orange blossom, and to try to describe it, I would say that it first smells soft and creamy (?!), a bit sweet and then after some time in water, it smells like oranges. I would go even further and say that at first, when you put this bubble bar under your nose it smells like a sweet pumpkin pie, which could be an autosuggestion because its appearance, but it really does. In any case, the scent is very soft, subtle and nice.

This is how Lush describes it:
"Have fun in this warm and merry bubble bath that will add a little sparkle to your night. The exotic and energizing combination of ylang ylang and orange blossom will empower you in a second. It is perfect for long, realxing baths but be careful! Its magic lasts only until midnight..."

And a far as I am concerned, I agree. This is a bubble bath which will really enrich your „me time“. The water will have luxurious foam on the top with only small parts of orange underneath.


As with all of the Lush bubble bars, this one also needs to be crumbled under running water and then left to perform its magic.

For the purposes of this review, I cut mine in half, which is what I always do, but you should use this particular bar for at least two times because it developes such a rich foam that it would probably look like foamcopalipse in your bathroom if you would put the whole piece in.

THE END! See what I mean? ;)

For me, this was a very nice bath, which I recommend for some pampering time.
