Lush Magic Mushroom Review

This was provided to me by a brand for review but all opinions expressed are my own

Lush Magic Mushroom Bubble Bar

The Lush Magic Mushroom Bubble Bar holds a special place in my heart not only because it’s the perfect Valentine’s Day bath treat but also because I’m a gamer.

At five or six years old my dad purchased me an Atari 2600 (I still have it) and I promptly got addicted to ET. ET was probably the most lame-o game every but props for being one of the first franchise style games in history.

Look at these wicked ace 1983 graphics!

Flash forward a few years and I became obsessed with Super Mario Brothers. At this time I wanted to BE Princess Toadstoll. That bitch had game, seriously, two successful plumbers fighting all sorts of evil to save her ass. Thus my love of cute mushroom-y themed items began.

Needless I associate mushrooms with power ups and believe you me take a Lush Magic Mushroom in the tub with you and you’re bound to perk up (or power up) with the scent of creamy strawberry!

All kidding aside Lush Magic Mushroom does indeed resemble a little power up doesn’t it? If you’re a fond fan of Yummy Yummy Yummy that’s pretty much the same scent that the Magic Mushroom shares. It’s only back for a limited time as Lush tucks it away for Valentine’s Day release only so haul as many as you can and stash them away for romantic strawberry scented baths.

The red cap contains the scent of Vanillary Perfume (one of my favs) and Lush tops it off with fresh strawberries for a mellow, creamy vanilla strawberry blend. It kinda reminds me of a car air freshener scent of some sort! If you’re anything like me car air fresheners might evoke migraines but don’t be nervous Lush successfully creates a perfectly creamy strawberry blend that’s pleasant, relaxing, not too sweet.

How do you use it?

Unfortunately, that cute mushroom shape has to be crumbled up under warm, hot water! It’ll create mountains (literally) of bubbles in your tube and if you’re feeling a little frugal you can get two to three baths out of one bar. I happen to be spoiled so I use an entire bar. It not only creates a ton of lather but that lather is very moisturizing and highly scented so you’ll leave your bath with dewy to the touch skin that’s soft and supple and the scent will literally linger and last on your skin for hours after your bath.

So bring a little magic to your bath tub with this mushroom! And if you’re a gamer all the more reason to enjoy it.

It’s only available for a limited time so snag it now at your local Lush store or online at www.lushusa.com

Very Muse Approved!

    lol those graphics are pretty terrible compared to the modern ones. But I have to say the 8-bit music just always sounds so great!!

    ahha princess toadstool would have to be a babe she is always getting kidnapped by the koppa king bowser 😉

    that mushroom is so small but creates so many bubbles its almost like something you would see in alice in wonderland!

      oh god were they ever ;-D hehe but it is good fun looking back on it ;-D it really doesn’t create literally mounds of bubbles!

  • jody

    I can NOT tell you how much I loved that ET game! Wow. The sounds of it, major memories!
    I got tingles!

    • the Muse

      jody it was so lame it was GOOD lol! I remember literally spending hours playing it!

  • Cj

    I’m getting a jet tub put in my bathroom… I can’t wait! ATTACK OF THE BUBBLES!!!

    • the Muse

      oh good we can have romantic time together in it….*insert hubba hubba here* LOL ;-D

      • Cj

        Ooh you naughty girl! I say we skip the bath tub, move to the jacuzzi n invite the winchesters over 😉

    I love the Vaniliary, can’t stand strawberry scents. Even so, I like this one. Weird.
    Also weird, picture this a week ago: open flat box, full of sweets and marshmallows, some sachets for making hot white chocolate, this bathbomb and some pieces of soap I picked up in the Christmas sale. I was making a box of treats for a homesick friend abroad and since this bubble bar wasn’t my favourite, I was going to include it. I went to get plastic wrap for the Lush stuff, while I was gone my brother tried to sneak one of the treats for me, long story short, he bit the top of the mushroom thinking it was one of the marshmallows and had to wash his mouth. Not with soap, obviously. Hate that he ruined the bubble bar, loved his confused reaction to it. Agh, so conflicted.
    PS ~ My comments don’t show anymore, I guess they’re being spammy. Whatevs, I will keep reading you 😀

      weird for me too marta, as it kinda goes car air freshener like to me but still gorgeous! LOL OH NO! god that is NOT good lol! 😀 marta, could be me hun! I’ve been behind replying!

  • blueraccoon

    I can’t wait until we move into our new house – it has a soaking tub! I can take long hot bubble baths! (We just bought it; closing in a month and three days, moving in six weeks. Eep!)

  • Alys

    pity they didn’t make the mushroom look better. It reminds me of a kid playing with play-doh.

  • Louise

    Oh this is so cute! When I first saw the picture it immediately reminded me of Toad from Mario. Wish they would stock this in Australia!

  • Danii

    Lol, Muse, Nintendo SNES is where it’s at! ;D Kidding, but we did play more N64 and SNES over the Atari when I was growing up. That bubble bar is adorable, makes me think of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and my friend, who loves mushrooms.

    • the Muse

      hehe danii ;-D I love all old school consoles ;-D aw yeah it does indeed remind me of Wonderland as well!

  • MM Curator

    YAY! See, I told you Magic Mushrooms were great! 😀 I can’t believe you’ve waited this long to try them! I’m currently hoarding 40 of them, LOL. I wish they’d make the scent into a perfume…maybe next year it’ll be one of the forum fragrances. This is seriously my all-time favorite LUSH product.
