He swims around your tub, creating bubbles wherever he goes… Another LUSH Christmas collection item I just had to take home with me, his name is: The Christmas Penguin Bubble Bar.
I really love that the Christmas Penguins are all made to look different – some are fat, some are tall, some have short stubby noses, and others have long pointy bills. Each and every little penguin is unique in his own special way. These LUSH penguins are modelled on a species called Little Penguins (found on Philip Island, Australia) and are considered the smallest penguins in the world – how cute!!
The Christmas Penguin is a Bubble Bar, so he gives you a soft haven of bubbly glaciers, and fills the bathroom with an invigorating scent that is very similar to Pop In The Bath. After using Mr. Waddle over here, my bath water felt super velvety with mounds of luscious bubbles to relax in (he also gave my bath water a slight turquoise tinge). The blend of Sicilian Lemon & Mandarin oils, Bergamot oil and Orange Flower Absolut create an uplifting and fresh fragrance. I find this scent to be extremely comforting, and is perfect for those who don’t necessarily want a Christmassy-smelling bath just because it’s the festive season.
Top Tip: You can use LUSH Bubble Bars in a number of ways – you can crumble a piece under running bath water, or drop the whole bar into the bath, swooshing your hand around to create bubbles. OR (and this is my favourite), you can place it inside a hoisery stocking or muslin cloth & suspend it under the running tap water. This makes your Bubble Bar last longer and prevents any undissolved pieces resting at the bottom of the tub.
I must admit, I used Christmas Penguin as is (I didn’t break him into pieces) because I think he’s happiest being plonked into the bath, free to swim around as he pleases.
The Christmas Penguin retails for R 54,50 and is currently available in the LUSH online store, as well as in-store (Cavendish, V&A Waterfront, Canal Walk and Gateway).
