I recently tried a sample piece of Lush Yuzu & Cocoa Bubbleroon. It was a tiny chunk but enough for quite a few uses, a fact that impressed me as much as its cleansing efficacy.
The actual product looks vaguely like a macaron and we are told to smush the two halves against the coconut oil cream centre, crumbling them into a bath. However, I used my chunk like a soap because I don’t have a bathtub at home.
It melts and spreads easily upon contact with my wet skin, its texture reminding me of a creamy sorbet. As it dissolves, it imparts a cool sensation while releasing its pleasing scent. There’s no slick or greasy layer of post-wash product, despite the seemingly-heavy shea butter/coconut oil contents – I like how it leaves my body feeling clean and lightly-moisturised…my skin feels satiny, almost.
Let the light grapefruit and bergamot oils lift your mind, whilst the cocoa and tonka bring warmth and comfort to the heart.
The scent is exactly as you’d imagine it to be from its name: citrussy with a chocolatey edge. I like its subtle sweetness – such a combination has the potential to be overwhelming, so I’m thankful it isn’t cloying.
In Singapore, this product retails at S$11 for 100 g. If you’d like to give this a go too, do ask the Lush staff for a sample and they’ll cut you a small slice to try. :)
