Lush Magic Wand Bubble Bar Review 

First of all, IT’S SO PRETTY!!!

It would have been the completely wrong thing to do if had left the Lush store in Bournemouth without it.

It’s pink, sparkly, has a cute bow and even cuter jingly bell, what more could a girl want?!
Plus it smells absolutely divine! I paraded it around the house for everyone to try the scent and my little sister, who reviewed Lush’s Frozen bath bomb here, claimed that it reminded her of slush puppies.

It does indeed smell divine, predominantly of bubblegum, and I can’t believe how long the scent filled the bathroom and lasted on my skin for!

Now for the ‘reusable’ element, I have used the Magic Wand Bubble Bar twice now and with a little rationing I am sure that I could stretch it out to four in total.

If you like your baths completely Lush-tastic and really enriched with the store’s magic, then you may only be able to use the bubble bar three times.

I also found that if you genuinely wave the Magic Wand like a fairy up and down your bath in the water, rather than running it under the tap, it will last a lot longer with less pressure.

At £5.25 it is definitely one of Lush’s pricier bath products, but every girl deserves to have someone wave a magic wand so that they can feel like a princess every now and again don’t they? 🙂

So you’re looking for a stocking filler, or after a beautiful present to complete your secret Santa gift, this Magic Wand Bubble Bar will add so much sparkle!

Also I would like to take this opportunity to give a massive shout out to two ladies… Ami Ford, whose beautiful blog you can see here and AnneMarie who you can follow on instagram here who both guessed which bubble bar I was using, just from a picture of the bubbles! You girls are definitely Lush queens!

Have you used this Magic Wand Bubble Bar? Let me know what you thought of it! Also I would love to hear which Lush products are on your Christmas list this year! You can leave me a comment or tweet me.

bareMinerals Complexion Rescue and Foundation – A Winning Combo

A little while ago I tweeted that my skin hadn’t been in such good condition in a long time, and that I was really happy with how clear it was looking.

When I was in my teenage years and very early 20s (I’m definitely still early 20s, okay? haha, I mean earrrrly like 20/21) I struggled with bad skin. It really upset me as I could never go on a night out and be happy with how my skin looked, or just wake up in the morning and not have to worry about putting make-up on to step outside my front door.

Although I had two courses of roaccutane (a long story for another blog post) which completely transformed my skin, I was still left with red marks and scarring and still longing for clear and fresh skin.

In my battle to achieve this, over the past 10 years (wow, I have actually been wearing make-up since I was 13! I first discovered it when I tried out my mum’s eye-liner, with very watery eyes and black smudges under each, I can remember going out to my brother’s summer school fate feeling extremely grown up and thinking that I looked the bees knees, oh how I have come a long way since haha), anyway, back to the point… over the past 10 years I’ve tried so many different foundations to try and cover up my spots but also to prevent further outbreaks, drying and oily skin.

From Rimmel’s Wake Me Up, to Maybelline’s Dream Matte Mousee and Max Factor’s Face Finity, I have tried lots of different types of drug store brands and never found anything that worked.

One day, my mum took me to the bareMinerals counter in Debenhams and they explained that their products really are good for your skin. Something which is obviously hard to believe because the best thing for your face is to wear nothing but your bare beauty. However, bareMinerals speak nothing but the truth.

I have been using their powder foundation (in the shade ‘light’) for years, which gives flawless, weightless and effortless coverage, genuinely giving my skin a healthy glow. Which I thought was amazing enough, until I got my hands on their Complexion Rescue.

When it was first released, I couldn’t afford it at £26 (being a poor graduate and not earning very much), so sadly I had to wait until my birthday when my Mum gave me a tube in the shade buttercream.

My birthday was at the end of September and more recently, I have been wearing the Complexion Rescue as a base for my foundation every single day, and boy am I impressed. I use my finger to rub a pea sized amount into my skin before applying my powder foundation over the top with my bareMinerals brush.

This gives me unrivalled coverage, rehydrates my skin and lasts all day. Plus, it I am in a rush, or just feeling a non-make-up day, then this little beauty answers all my skin healing prayers.

For the first time in my life I can actually say that I am pretty happy with my skin and feel confident even when I am not wearing a single brush or rub of foundation. I have bareMinerals to thank for that, and I honestly can’t recommend their collection enough.
