Review: Lush Holly Golightly Bubble Bar


A few Saturdays ago I'd had a bit of a rubbish day and as I was very close to a Lush store, I decided to buy some make-myself-feel-better treats. One of these treats came in the form of the Holly Golightly Bubble Bar. At £4.75 it's quite an expensive bubble bar, but at the time that didn't matter...!

Holly Golightly is quite a large, thick bubble bar and looks like a brightly coloured, shimmering Christmas cake with a sprig of holly on top. What attracted me to it is the scent - containing Patchouli, Persian Lime, Clove Leaf and Sweet Orange Essential Oils you get this gorgeously festive aroma that is spicy and warming, but still has a hint of sweet citrus. 

I got two uses out of Holly Golightly, each time enjoying a layer of foamy bubbles and water that turns into a rich green. The scent is perfectly balanced; it's refreshing but not too uplifting for an evening bath and it's relaxing but won't make you fall asleep! The only thing I would say is that's a bit too subtle - I don't whether this is simply because I used half of the bar each time or whether this is how it's meant to be. However it is a gorgeous scent and after discovering that the shower gel Hot Toddy has the same scent, I have added it to my wishlist. 

You can find out more about Holly Golightly or buy it for yourself online here.

  1. I really liked Holly Golightly too! However, I found the shower gel way too strong even though it contains the same scent. It might be nicer on the skin though :) x x x

  2. Gosh, that is pricey but not bad considering you get two uses out of it. I definitely want to try it after reading your review!

  10. I love the Lush bubble bars, I think this is the only one I haven't tried! Candy Mountain & The Comforter are my absolute favourites but I might pick this one up next time I'm in x

  11. I recently ran out of all of my Lush stuff and I'm so sad, baths just aren't the same! I can't wait to restock and would give this one a go as I have never used it. I was always really wary of the glittery ones but thankfully the glitter doesn't really stick to the skin!

  13. I saw this at the Lush store a few months ago and I thought it was the cutest thing! I ended up picking up some of their other holiday items, but maybe if they still have some left I'll give it a go! x
