LUSH Gingerbread House Bubble Bar - A Bath You Won't ReGretel

I received the Gingerbread House Bubble Bar as a Christmas gift from my boyfriend last year if I remember well, and I chose to wait before sharing my thoughts with you because I always prefer to review LUSH Christmas products around the Holidays since they are limited edition. 

Of course, someone has to be the center of attention when I take blog pictures

I don't know why but I did not even questioned myself whether this bubble bar was available this year too, so I was surprised to not find it on LUSH website! When I wondered on Twitter if it was discontinued, LUSH was quick to answer that they had it as a limited edition special this year, but it was available online only. I figured out I would review it anyway, just in case it makes a comeback next Christmas.

The Gingerbread House is probably the cutest LUSH product I have seen with its little snowy roof and cinnamon stick chimney, and its sweetly spicy smell just like fresh gingerbread makes me want to eat it! I usually prefer sweet scents but this bubble bar happily surprised me - as soon as I popped it in the bath, it created a mountain of spicy and fruity foam, and best of all, the scent lingered for as long as I relaxed in the bath, without being overpowering. It is a warm, inviting and relaxing smell that just makes you feel good. 

I loved how the water turned a bright orange, which was unexpected and a bit weird at first, but I have seen worse and I thought was quite funny and unique. Even if the foam diminished gradually, it was still present after one hour has passed, when I decided to get out of the bath.

The Gingerbread House definitely provided a nice relaxing bath and even though the fragrance did not linger on my skin afterwards, I really loved how it left my skin moisturized thanks to the ginger and lemon oils, without feeling greasy.

Peach is sad  that the Gingerbread House is limited-edition ):

LUSH Gingerbread House Bubble Bar usually costs around $6.95 but it is not available anymore this year.

    Moi ça fait longtemps que je ne suis pas retourné à Lush. Trop cher pour rien je trouve.. =/ mais en tout cas, le bubble bar me fait penser au donuts dans les Simpsons. lol

    J'ai toujours été craintive des produits de lush a cause de ma peau capricieuse, mais j'aime bien leur coeur chocolaté pour faire des massages hihi! C'est vraiment un bon produit! :)
