Bronze FUN Bar

Back in 2014, Lush brought out a series of limited edition FUN Bars as part of a collection called 'mind the gap.' A few weeks prior they had released a handful of limited edition perfumes that didn't appear to have been filled to the very top,  so the company brought out these FUN Bars by way of apology. One of these limited editions was scented with the Yog Nog fragrance, which completely blew my mind and had me salivating each and every time I used it (sparingly) in the shower.

Fast forward to 2019 and Bronze FUN Bar hits the shelves of the Liverpool superstore as one of their in store exclusives, boasting the same Yog Nog aroma and looking super scrumptious to boot. I just knew I had to get my hands on a bar as soon as it was humanly possible, and thanks to an amazing person this dream came true far earlier than I had imagined it would.
This product is everything you could wish for if you're a fan of this fragrance. Made from a mixture of ylang ylang and clove bud oil, with a sprinkling of cocoa powder, Bronze FUN is a sweet, vanillary aroma intertwined with a delicious fudgy note alongside this. There's also a gentle note of nutmeg and clove, both of which you can detect but neither of which are particularly strong overall.

Simply put: Bronze FUN smells absolutely beautiful and very much like the warm, buttery dessert that we've come to recognise this smell as. Everything about the scent of this will have you salivating from the get-go, and it's definitely on par with the likes of the bath bomb and the body lotion.

Not only does it smell divine, but it also happens to be super effective in the shower. This bar happens to be a little on the soft side so it definitely should be stored somewhere real cool between uses, and I'd definitely recommend that you only take a tiny piece with you into the shower each time as you really don't need a lot.
As soon as it comes into contact with the water, it lathers up and creates a thick, fragrant foam that coats your skin and leaves the scent lingering on your body. Much like the soap, the fragrance comes into full force when it reacts to the heat of the water and you really have to fight the urge not to lick the bar whilst you're using it. I dare say at least one person has probably had a taste of this at some point!

I will go as far as to say that this is even better than a soap or a shower gel - it lathers up a treat in the shower and produces a gorgeous, silky-soft mound of suds to clean yourself with. When you massage this across your skin, you can feel how instantly smooth it makes you feel and you can still detect the fragrance on your skin when you exit the bathroom, and for hours afterwards as well. It doesn't dry your skin out at all and it's easier to use than a hard slab of soap.

Much like every other FUN bar, Yog Nog can also be used instead of a bubble bar - held under a running tap to create a surplus amount of bubbles and a beautifully fragrant bath to enjoy. Again, this bar worked well in this way although it didn't produce as many bubbles as some of the other FUN bars have done so, perhaps because of its softer constancy. I cut a slice that probably equated to a sixth of the bar and this gave me more than enough bubbles, so this works out cheaper than a regular bubble bar.
While the product doesn't really create an exciting or colourful bath, the smell more than makes up for it and offers a relaxing and very comforting bath tub experience for all. Having said that, I would recommend that you use this in place of a shower gel as opposed to a bubble bar, as you get a much more rewarding experience this way and the product goes a lot further.

I'd probably go as far as to say that Bronze FUN may indeed be my favourite FUN Bar from the Liverpool store, and if you're a fan of Yog Nog, you need to get your hands on one of these right away. This needs to be made a permanent for certain otherwise I'll be trekking up to Liverpool myself, just to grab some of these and a few Hercules.
