Lush bunch of carrots | Review

Hello lovelies,
Today I'm off on a little adventure with my best friend which may include a trip to lush.....so look out for a little haul at some point. Anyway I'm reviewing one of the Easter range, I'm pretty sure I reviewed this last year but lush have changed the product slightly. I hope this isn't to bad but I wanted to give you an updated review of the bunch of carrots bubble bar.



Here's what it says on the website about it "Dig up the dirt on refreshing tropical bathing with this adorable trio of carrots. Hold one of these reusable carrots under running water to send bubbly clouds of buchu, lemon and grapefruit oils scurrying across your bath, and then pop it on the side for next time. The distinctive, bright colours of this heritage bunch make it an attractive addition to Easter baskets and Easter bathtimes alike".

Ingredients |
Sodium Carbonate, Cream of Tartar, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Glycerine, Lauryl Betaine, Perfume, Buchu Oil, Sicilian Lemon Oil, Bergamot Oil, Titanium Dioxide, Lilial, *Limonene, Colour 15985, Colour 19140, Colour 19140:1, Colour 45410, Colour 14700, Colour 17200, Colour 17200, Colour 42090.

Now last year these bubble bars were all orange, whereas this year there's one orange, one purple and one pink carrot. I preferred it when they were all orange last year though, I'm not sure why but it was much easier to swirl the bunch around the bath, now I find that because I don't want a weird colour in my bath, I have to break a carrot off and use it like that. The smell of the bubble bar is almost that same as last year. To me it smells a little like liquorice, I'm not sure why but that's the scent I get from it. It's is a lighter scent than last year though, unfortunately I preferred the one last year to this one.

The price, well I think £6.95 was pretty expensive for this bubble bar. Yes you get three but they are still quite small. I don't normally mind spending a bit more on the bubble bars but even the comforter isn't that expensive and I think the comforter bubble bar is a much better product. 

I'm not sure what went wrong but this one didn't really make many bubbles, most bubble bars make a mountain of bubbles for me to sink into. This one just made a few bubble on the top of the water, not even enough to make a bubble beard. Please don't pretend like you haven't made a bubble beard before, let's just accept it and move on. I mean it might make a lot more but it just seemed like I didn't really want to make a nice bubbly heaven for me this time.

This one didn't really do my skin many favours, for some reason this one made my legs itch really badly. Last year this didn't happen but that might just be that I have quite sensitive skin right now, not sure why but this means that some of the ingredients in the baht products are just not working for me right now. 

Anyway that's about it for me today. This week my blogs been a bit hit and miss, however I have the weekend to try and fit in some writing. Well mainly Sunday evening, I'm going shopping tomorrow after work but I'll try and get some writing done on the way there but Careoke may distract me.

Lots of love,
