SA Lushmas 2017 – BUBBLE BARS

Who remembers the Sailor Matey Liquid Bubble Bath we had as kids? The bubble beards we made and the bubble mountain hair? It’s the kid in me that wants ALLLLLL the bubbles, even today! A bath is not a bath without them bubbles! So it’s no surprise bubble bars are one of my favourite products from Lush 😀 Here’s the incredible Christmas bubble bars line up:





Sharing its scent with one of my FAVE regular line soaps, Rock Star soap, this bubble bar smells of vanilla and candyfloss and is the perfect addition to any sweet scented bath cocktail! I used mine with Yummy Mummy, American Cream and Snow Fairy bath cocktails. If you have a sweet tooth and love curbing those cravings with a candy scented bath, this one is definitely a bubble bar to have in your collection!

Retail: R54,50





Since the addition of the Plum Rain shower gel to our regular line up, people have been crying out for more product formats in this juicy fruity scent! Lush obliged giving us Plum Snow Bubble Bar for Christmas!! Plum Rain is not my absolute fave scent and I’m totally i the minority here, but when I sniffed the Plum Snow bubble bar it gave me everything I hoped the shower gel had – it is FRUITY (thanks to the plums), with a touch of sweetness and zing. It also has a more complex fresh, green woody aroma to it which which makes this a unique scent for lush and super popular with pretty much everyone (but me. I like it though! I just don’t love it :P) It is just heaven in a bubble bar and so therefore I will be getting a couple as I’m all about gorgeous fruity scents! Not to mention it is huge and I can see that it would be easy to get about 4 baths out of one of these purple beauties. Jon Snow might know nothing, but Lush know us all too well and got Plum Snow all kinds of right for us to revel in.

What a cracker of a bubble bar! Filled to the brim with popping candy, you’ll be crackle, snap and popping away in the bath with this zesty lemony beauty! I absolutely adore the design – for me the best thing about Christmas around the lunch table is having a go at the crackers (especially the types with confetti in them) so when I saw this bubble bar I was like all the YAAAASSS this beaut has my name alllll over it! 😀 It is perfectly paired with the recently released Cheer Up Buttercup Bath Bomb as they both contain lemon myrtle and lemon oils. Some say they are from the same scent family but I find Christmas Cracker to smell strongly like the zest of a lemon rather than the lemony cream scent I get from Cheer Up. Snap these up while you can because this bubble bar will be a Christmas favourite for sure!

Retail: R115





Sharing it’s scent with Christmas 2016 Northern Lights bath bomb, its scent is a beautiful medley of jasmine and ylang ylang – a perfectly balanced floral that isn’t in any way offensive to even those who aren’t floral fanatics! If I rememebr correctly, this bubble bar formed part of the Christmas 2014 range so I was super surprised to see it back in 2017 (as this makes me hopeful that discontinued christmas favourites – UHM, So White – will make a return in the Christmases to come??!!). This bubble bar is what I like to call ‘petite’ (but only in comparison to the rather large bubble bars we have this christmas) and I think I’d personally get 2 uses out of it, but this is definitely one to have in your stash when the mood for a floral bath strikes!

Retail: R95





Cinnamon spice and all things nice!

I love that although the bubble bar has whole organic cloves and an entire star anise adorning it, it is the almond essential oils, cinnamon and sweet orange oil that one can smell and it is one of my all time favourites from Christmas last year. It is such a warming and comforting scent and smells to me, like Christmas. The bubble bar sits atop an actual cinnamon stick and to use, you swish it under the running tap and then pat dry and store to use again later. I think I got about 4 generous baths out of mine last year! These sell out fast so if this bubble bar sounds like your sort of scent profile, I’d be quick to snap a couple up.

Retail: R95





Snow Fairy scented goodness (pink bubblegum, candy floss, sugary sweetness!) These also sell out quickly so snap them up if you’re all about the Snow Fairy, as I am!

Retail: R95





Anything Calacas scented will be a huge hit with Lushies the world over! Filled with lime oil, neroli (a blues buster) and grounding olibanum (my fave ingredient EVER, next to neroli of course), this gorgeous (and huge) bubble bar will lift moods and spirits with its bright yet calming fragrance. If I had to choose ONE bubble bar to stock up on this Christmas, this is my top pick by a mile! Plus you get serious bang for your buck with this one too.

Retail: R95





With lemon and lemon myrtle oils, this cutie smells bright but calming as it isn’t an overpowering fragrance, which I love! Containing cocoa and shea butters your skin is left moisturised while soya milk softens the bath water as you enjoy a well deserved soak. I can see this bubbleroon being well paired with almost any bath cocktail and that means I’ll be getting a couple for sure as I adore me some lemon in my bath cocktails!

Retail: R59,50



That concludes the Christmas 2017 Bubble Bar line up! Look out for The Lushmas 2017 Shower Gels, both liquid and naked in my next post, coming out tomorrow!

  • sarahlushie - loved reading your reviews kim! 😀 and omg, I didn’t know Christmas Eve was Northern Lights scented! 😱😍 that’s why I love the scent so MUCh! :O28th October 2017 – 1:43 pmReplyCancel

  • Lushoverandover - What’s your opinion on the new range? Do you like it or are the other years better?28th October 2017 – 1:51 pmReplyCancel

    • kimdutoit - In some ways it’s better and in other ways I miss certain items very much. I have to say this year’s gifting is INCREDIBLE though!!! Only the most popular items are in the gift sets we have in stores here in SA but overall from what I’ve seen Lush have done an amazing job at gifting for Christmas 2017!! I have to say that I really love this year’s Christmas range!! Especially because they’ve introduced another body conditioner and a new body lotion. The only products I dearly miss from last year are So White Bath Bomb, Stardust Bath Bomb and Peeping Santa Bubble Bar – but with it only being three items I was hoping would return, I’d say Lush have done exceptionally well with their range this year! 😃29th October 2017 – 10:56 amReplyCancel
