Polar Bear Plunge Bubble Bar




One of the recurring themes that tends to come up in discussions about Lush products is this understanding that mint is a really uplifting, and very healing fragrance to use to benefit your mental health. While I have always found mint aromas have the power to elevate my spirit at times, I have never truly understood the full extent of their healing capacities until recently. 

With the downfall of my mental health in recent months, Polar Bear Plunge Bubble Bar couldn't have come at a better time. This spearmint-scented beauty not only offered me one of the most moisturising baths I have had in a long time, but recognising how much this product was also able to improve my mental health that particular day was simply astounding. 

Firstly, let's start with the fact that this bubble bar is perhaps one of the cutest bath products that Lush have ever created. Who would not want to bathe with a miniature version of one of the most beautiful creatures on our planet? Everything about this Christmas special has been perfectly crafted: from it's size, shape, design and scent, and would be the perfect stocking filler for adult and child alike.

What I love about Polar Bear is that it epitomises a very basic design and fragrance. Whereas I would normally shy away from quite basic smells, there is something rather comforting about the simplicity of this scent, and the fact that it doesn't add any colour to the bath water as well. For this latter reason, this bubble bar would work well with any other bath bomb you wish to combine it with - adding a cooling, refreshing undertone to indulge yourself in.

Having said that, this limited edition is perhaps not as strong as you would initially envisage it to be. In fact, I was rather surprised to discover that the 'bite' of the spearmint is fairly tame compared to other Lush products that feature this ingredient as a key component. Therefore, if you dislike strong mint scents, this one is definitely far tamer than you would imagine.

Strangely, when crumbling this under the running water, I found that the consistency is very on par with that of a reusable bubble bar. I discovered that it was very difficult to actually break the bubble bar apart, and simply holding it under the running water was enough to generate a generous amount of bubbles in my bath tub. 

In fact, I would say that it would be far more conducive to cut the bubble bar into 3-4 pieces beforehand, and only use part of the Polar Bear with each bath. This makes this seasonal special really good value for money in my eyes, as it works out at roughly £1.25 per bath. Compared to a £4 bath oil, this seems a little more reasonable.

Despite its lack of colour in the tub, the softness of the water was really obvious from the moment I submerged beneath the surface. Within a matter of minutes the condition of my skin felt completely different: it was far softer; more velvet to the touch; and it just appeared incredibly nourished. This feeling continued for the rest of the day and into the next, without needing to use a body lotion or massage bar afterwards.

Ultimately, I can see why there has been so much hype surrounding this bubble bar, as it is quite simply a perfect product. The design itself is utterly cute; the scent is strong enough to last long after the plug has been pulled, yet not so strong to overwhelm the senses; the way it nourishes and improves the condition of your skin, and enhances your mental health is simply phenomenon. This needs to become a regular member of the Lush range, and I would highly recommend that you grab yourself one of these before the year is out.

  1. Get Your Ex Lover Back No Matter Why He Left You”
    I just got my ex husband back through the help of Dr Jumba love spell Experts.
     My husband left me for another woman, This was just 3 years of our marriage. The most painful thing is that I was pregnant with our second baby. I wanted him back. I did everything within my reach to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so badly because of the love I had for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to my friend and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back. I had no choice but to try it. I messaged the spell caster called dr Jumba, and he assured me there was no problem and that everything will be okay before 11 hours. He cast the spell and surprisingly 11 hours later my husband called me. I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that had happened. He wanted me to return to him. He also said he loved me so much. I was so happy and went to him. That was how we started living together happily again.thanks to dr Jumba .
