Review: Lush Gingerbread Tin




The Gingerbread House Tin was given to me for my birthday back in November. Last night I used up the last of the goodies within so am ready to make my review! Lush is absolutely one of my favourite brands and buying me something from there for a birthday is always a good idea! ;)

Within it are four goodies: two bubble bars and two bath ballistics. I had never tried any of their bubble bars yet so was quite excited (I had actually had my eye on the gingerbread house - how did my friends know?) plus they had tow bath ballistics, and I am going to start the review by saying that I have never been overly impressed with bath ballistics. Just get that out the way first...


Firstly we have Candy Mountain Bubble Bar which was probably my favourite product within the box. Lush itself describe smell as "lovely vanilla and candy floss" which is very accurate in my opinion. The description did however make it seem as the bubbles would be pink. They're not. The water itself turned pink but the bubbles were just the regular white. Which I should have expected but I can get a bit giddy when pink is mentioned and envisioned myself relaxing in a cloud of pinkness! 

I used the entire mountain within one bath and had to say I felt that regular bubble bath such as my favourite Radox usually gives me much bigger bubbles. The bubbles themselves were softer and more luxurious feeling than Radox though. If you're thinking about purchasing this product it would depend on which you prefer: soft bubbles than are on the small side or  big bubbles that aren't as delicate on your skin. I personally prefer being engulfed in bubbles so I won't be trying any more bubble bars (unless I read a review for another one that says "omg these bubbles go up to the roof!").


The second product here is the Cinders Bath Bomb There also another bath ballistic within the box, So white, but I forgot to take a picture. Bath bombs and bath ballistics may be different things but these products felt very similar whilst using them. Unfortunetly the two products like this within this box did very little to change my opinion on things that fizz around your bath. I just can't really see the point in them.  I keep thinking they would be better suited to kids who are amused by things that travel around the bath (the same as they might laugh at a rubber duck). But me, not really.


The final product we have here is the Gingerbread House Bubble Bar which was the first product to catch my eye though is reviewed last. Norm. Like the Candy Mountain bubble bar the description mentions mountains of foam which wasn't true in my opinion. I didn't quite follow the intructions on the packet when using this one (first time using bubble bar and all that!) but I did when I opened the Candy Mountain and whilst it produced some more bubbles that the Gingerbread House not quite as much as traditional bubble bath.

To show you something:

When using the Gingerbread House I remembered to photograph the bubbles before I got in the bath. This personally is not enough bubbles for me (I also wear a facemask in the bath - how lux of me!). You can't quite see it in this picture but the water is orange whilst the bubbles are white - a similar effect with the Candy mountain bar, expect that was pink.

Overall?
Would I buy this again? Probably not. The Candy mountain at a push, but the others no. I do adore lush products but aside from the bath melts their bath products have never wowed me. Something I thought was really good was the smell and in fact I left the water sitting there a while after my bath just so the smell would travel through the bathroom (a plus about living alone!). The water was definitely softer than traditional bubble bath as well but for me Radox still wins as a bath product because, personally, I like to have bubbles above my head (and not have coloured water!).

Have you tried this? Already bought it for someone? Is it on your Christmas list? Want to tell me off for dissing ballistics?
