Blue FUN

The Lush FUN line consists of five different coloured bars, each with a different unique scent. You have Pink FUN, which is a fruity candy smell, Yellow FUN, which has a vanilla scent, Red FUN, which is mandarin and orange, Green FUN, which possesses a lemon and lime scent, and Blue FUN, which offers a lavender scent.

If there's one Lush product that encompasses it's title, it's FUN. It seems that Lush have taken all of their product knowledge, their unique outlook and their quirkiness and combined it all together to produce something that is unlike any other cosmetic product on the market to date.

Wrapped in a biodegradable wrapper, FUN encompasses everything I love about Lush;

1. It's completely ecologically friendly.
2. It's incredibly versatile and can be used as a shampoo, shower gel or bubble bar.
3. It's incredibly good value for money.
4. It comes in five beautiful and completely unique scents.
5. It encourages your inner child to indulge itself as you can actually play with FUN, much like you would plasticine.

Blue Fun contains a mixture of lavender, Moroccan chamomile and chamomile blue essential oils, which works wonders as a bath time treat before bed. Simply break off a generous piece (I tend to quarter the bar so I can have 4 separate baths) and pop it under the running tap. Immediately the bubbles begin to foam and the water starts to turn a gorgeous shade of blue, which maintains it's colour throughout the whole experience. The lavender scent really helps you to relax and I love going to bed with the faint smell of it lingering on my pillow.

As I said above, this product is super versatile. So if you don't fancy using it in the bath, you can use it as a shower gel. Simply break off a small amount and lather it up between your hands, like you would a piece of soap or Lush's shower jelly. It leaves your skin super soft and doesn't stain the bath tub or your skin.

What you may notice is that the label is written in Japanese. This is because the product is one of many chosen by Lush to raise money for their initiative, FUNd. The initiative supports children's charities all over the world, and in particular, those in Japan, to raise money and awareness for serious plights happening to children across the globe; The 2011 Japanese tsunami that killed thousands of people, is just one such cause. 2.5% of the profit made on each and every bar of FUN goes towards supporting and furthering these charities. How amazing is that?

This is perfect of those who need to travel light or are worried that bottles or tubs may leak in their bag. Simply wrap this in cling film or pop a small chunk in a sealable tub and you're all set to go!

I think this is definitely one of Lush's better-value products and I hope they remain a permanent fixture in their regular range.

  1. Does this smell Like the dream time bath melt? I love the smell of that!

  2. While it doesn't smell identical to Dream Melt, if you like that sort of scent, you'll no doubt love Blue FUN. It definitely shares the relaxing qualities of the bath melt and it has an equally beautiful aroma. In fact, these two would no doubt work wonderfully together :)
