Review: Lush Gingerbread House Bubble Bar - Soak in gingerbread bubbles!

This is a review on the Lush Gingerbread House Bubble Bar. I bought this in Hawaii last year. This was a limited edition product last year that Lush has rereleased this year!

Note: This product is being rereleased for the 2012 holiday season!

I have just uploaded a post on how to make your bubble bars last longer. Please take a look!

What it does: (from lush.co.uk)

Ginger and spice and all things nice. That’s what our little bubble bar house is made of. With its Ilittle snowy roof and cinnamon stick chimney, this bubble bar looks as good as its edible cousins. But, when you come to use this one, instead of a stale gingerbread biscuit, you get mountains of spicy, fruity foam and a jolly good wash. With ginger powder and ginger essential oil, this is a warming little number. But we’ve also given it lemon oil and a fruity scent based around the blackcurrant notes of buchu oil. It’s a wonderful treat that you’ll want to lose yourself in. If you’re feeling the winter blues a soak in this will help you find your way out of the woods.

Price: $6.95 US, 2.95 GBP UK. 
This is about $0.50 more expensive than the price last year.  In Japan, it was 700 JPY last year. This product has not yet been released yet in Japan, so I don't know if the price will go up, like in the US/UK, or if it will stay the same considering the Japanese Yen is extremely strong.

Update for 2012: The updated prices are $6.95 in the US and 3.95GBP in the UK

Scent: This product smells like sweet ginger. I love it!

Pros:
  • I love the scent!
  • This product left my skin moisturized but not oily or greasy
  • I got lots of great bubbles from this bubble bar

Cons:
  • This product is kind of expensive to use only once. (unless you buy it in the UK, where it is pretty affordable)

Would I repurchase? This is a product that I wouldn't repurchase regularly, but it's nice to have one for the holidays. It's also a great stocking stuffer!

Hope you enjoyed this review!  I also have reviews for other Lush holiday items that are being rereleased this year, such as Snow Fairy Shower Gel, Snow Globe Soap, Glogg Shower Gel, Angel's Delight Soap, Snowcake Soap, and Buche de Noel Cleanser!

xoxo, K

  1. I bought this last year too!  It was a great couple of baths, I agree its not one I would use year round!  I am looking forward to picking one up again this year.

    I also noted that the prices of some items at Lush have gone up this year, I checked back on my past blogs and was surprised.

  3. Oh wow. I have been looking forward to christmassy type products. (Snow Fairy is FARR too sickly sweet for me! I say that and yet I still use Lancome Hypnose senses as my preferred Christmas perfume-I have no idea what my nose is like!)

    Are you back in Japan for good now? Or flying back to China soon?
