Lush ultraviolet | Review

Hello lovelies,
Now that I've finally uploaded my lush Easter haul, I can start using and reviewing all the products. As you may have seen from my haul I got all the bubble bars and bath ballistics that they had in the range. Today I'm reviewing the ultraviolet bubble bar and I'm writing this just after I've got out of the bath after using this product, so hopefully this review will be a little bit better than others I've done.


Here's what it says on the lush website about the bubble bar "Come over to the dark side of the rainbow to bathe in decadent violet and jasmine bubbles, flecked with twinkling snowflake lustre and deep purple waters. Grounding rosewood adds rich floral notes to this sweet bubbly fragrance, helping you to find the silver lining from your bath.".

I used about a 5th of this bubble bar and when I crumbled it under the water it turned it the most gorgeous shade of purple. The smell got lighter when it mixed into the water and released a lovely relaxing scent, a little bit like the smell of a beach. The bubbles looked really shimmery and it was so nice to sink into a mountain of bubbles and apply my face mask. Even thought the scent does lighten slightly I wouldn't suggest this is you aren't a fan of the more earthy scents that lush do, I never used to be but for some reason my scene of smell has changed and now I love them.

For the price of this bubble bar I think you get your moneys worth, it was £4.95 which is the standard price for the large bubble bars from lush. I haven't tried any of the other products from the eater range yet but I think this will be my favourite out of the bubble bars just because I'm slightly obsessed with the smell of this one. The one think I would say its that this one isn't great for leaving your skin feeling moisturised, it didn't irritate my skin but as you all know I like products that hydrate my skin and leave it feeling soft. This one didn't really do that but I can overlook that for the fact that it smells and looks great in the bath. With this bubble bar I would recommend using the king of skin bar after you get out of the bath, this will hydrate the skin and live you smelling lovely.
