Lush Candy Mountain

30 November 2013

After my last post, I'm well and truly embracing the festive spirit. The decorations are out of the loft, I've visited a Christmas market, plus did I mention that I'm off to Disneyland next week? Only once or twice ;-). The Lush Christmas collection has been doing the blogging rounds lately, and seeing as bubble baths are one of my favourite things on a cold winters night, I decided to give Candy Mountain a go. 

First things first, Candy Mountain doesn't have its own unique scent. It shares the same delicious sweet shop and vanilla combination as the Creamy Candy Bubble Bar, and to my nose, smells almost exactly like Lush's infamous Snow Fairy Shower Gel. It's not the most mature of scents, but the vanilla manages to balance everything out and avoid moving in to 'sickly' territory. Anything with vanilla smells a little bit festive to me, combine that with candy cane and you're on to a winner.

Priced at £2.65, Candy Mountain is one of Lush's more reasonably priced bubble bars. I managed to get three decent baths out of it, each with a nice amount of bubbles.  I was surprised to see that my water remained clear - I expected pink - but the bubbles which it produced had a pale pink colouring, which was lovely. This bubble bar does contain glitter (it is Christmas after all - it'd be rude not to!), but not so much that I felt like a disco ball after my bath. 

Undoubtedly for me, the best thing about Candy Mountain is that delicious smell. I'll definitely be buying a couple more for over the festive season, plus I think it'd make a lovely stocking filler. Not that I'm hinting...
