I have another Lush Oxford Street review for you today. This time, I'm talking about one of the new reusable bubble bars called Pink Flamingo. It's a neon pink flamingo on a stick - what's not to like?! Lush's reusable bubble bar mix is slightly stiffer than their regular bubble bars, meaning you can swish them back and forth in the water or hold them under the running tap to create bubbles over several different baths.
As I've said, Pink Flamingo is a neon pink flamingo-shaped bubble bar on a stick. There's some neon orange in there too. Sadly, my flamingo got decapitated on the journey from London back to Bristol, but he still works fine!
In the bath, Pink Flamingo instantly tints the water and creates soft foamy bubbles. It reminds me a bit of strawberry milkshake! The orange parts of the bubble bar also fizz slightly, like a bath bomb. Ylang ylang, rosewood and neroli give this bubble bar quite a heady floral scent when dry but in the water it transforms into a delicious sweet and fruity fragrance. It's meant to be cocktail inspired and it definitely fits that description!
Sadly, the yummy scent didn't linger on my skin particularly, but I did find the bar softened my skin beautifully due to the shea and cocoa butter it contains. At £5.95, it is slightly more expensive than a regular bubble bar but the reusable format means you can stretch it further than just one or two baths. I can't get enough of the novelty shape and fizzy fruity scent. I'd repurchase in a heart beat and I'm still hoping the Oxford Street products will appear nationwide soon!
P.S. I want to take the time credit the wonderful Jen of All Things Lush UK. She's an absolute superstar when it comes to Lush reviews and her posts have helped me fill in any gaps in terms of ingredients for my reviews - the fact that these exclusives aren't on the website can make it hard to know what's in everything! Do check out her blog and give her a follow because she's great.
