Rub Rub Rub is my favourite Lush product of all time (read my review of Rub Rub Rub here) so I was chuffed to discover there were two new products in Lush Oxford Street with the same fragrance (as well as a tub of Rub Rub Rub the size of my face!)
BIG BANG BUBBLE BAR
The first time I visited Lush Oxford Street, this bubble bar wasn't in stock. I'm very happy that I spotted it on my next trip and gave it a whirl as it's my new favourite by far! Half a bar crumbled under a running tap gives more than enough bubbles and the pink stars are a bath melt which leaves the bath really moisturising. As I mentioned, it has the same fragrance as Rub Rub Rub, and the Mother Superior Bubble Bar that was released for Mothers' Day: A gorgeous, refreshing blend of lemon, jasmine and mimosa. I can't get enough of it! Unfortunately it wasn't one of the products rolled out nationwide, so I just have to stock up whenever I pop into London.
RUB RUB RUB SOLID BODY SCRUB
On the other hand, Rub Rub Rub solid scrub has been introduced to all stores around the UK. It's so pretty with a pale blue base and a cherry blossom design. Unfortunately I have found that after a while it loses it colour and, for some reason, turns into a pale pink. It's been stored in a dark drawer so I can't blame it on the sunlight. No idea what's happened there! It also seems to have absorbed the fragrances from other Lush products stored in the same drawer so now has more of a fruity, candy scent than the usual Rub Rub Rub fragrance.
It's possible to use this scrub in two different ways: For gentle exfoliation, use under the shower, or apply to dry skin for a more thorough scrub. Either way, it's much more gentle than the original Rub Rub Rub so it would be perfect for people who prefer their shower scrubs on the gentle side. With me, however, I like a rough scrubby experience so it was a little disappointing. The end result wasn't as smooth and silky as the original, either. I'll be sticking with my mega tubs from now on. They go towards my free face masks too!
If you ask me, Lush should bring out even more products with this fragrance. Rub Rub Rub shower gel? That would be divine! Definitely an unsung hero!
