Description

Creamy vanilla tones evoke thoughts of seaside ice creams, granny's baking and home comforts.

Directions

Well, the first thing you will want to do with your Fun is get it out of its biodegradable wrapper and start having fun making it into models and shapes. There are so many ways to wash with Fun. For body and hair, just pinch off a small bit, hop in the shower or bath and lather from head to toe. Use as a bubble bath or to hand wash your clothes by crumbling a small chunk under the hot running tap. When you've finished having Fun, please store your bar back in its cellophane.

Ingredients

Talc, Cornflour, Glycerine, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Vanilla Absolute, Perfume, Gardenia Extract.

WHAT IS FUN?
Fun is a brand new 4 in 1 Lush creation. It works as a soap, a bubble bath, a shampoo and finally it is a play dough for in or out of the bath.
Not only is it a fun product but it is another of the many items that Lush donate a % to charity. In this case 10p from every bar goes to the FunD - more about that later.

THE FUND
Lush have a lot of customers in Japan and so after the Tsunami they donated a lot to help those who suffered . Today many children are still suffering and Lush donates 10p from every bar of FUN towards children’s projects in Japan. In many areas because of the danger of radiation poisoning many children cannot play outside and the money from FunD goes towards groups helping to create activities for these children so that they can run and play and mix with other children in safe environments.

USING FUN
Using it on the body as a soap you can either use a small piece as a soap or squish it with warm water to form a paste or bath cream and apply with a sponge or cloth as you would a bath/shower gel or cream.

In the bath break FUN up into small pieces or create a paste then add to the bath under the running tap as it is filling and enjoy a lovely scented bubbly bath.

When using it as a shampoo I find that it is best to squish a small amount into a soft solution and apply it like any shampoo then rinse out thoroughly.

Playing with it is obvious really just shape the dough like stuff as you would any play dough. You can play in or out of the bath but when playing in the bath the FUN does begin to disappear so beware of long playing wet sessions.

FUN YELLOW
The yellow one smells creamy and like vanilla like which is not surprising that is what is has to scent it lots of lovely vanilla absolute and gardenia extract in this to give the lovely sweet and comforting smell. It isn’t a ‘bowl you over’ fresh scent but rather more custard like.
Sadly there is also sodium Laureth Sulphate which give the bubbles so if you are allergic to this beware.

The malleable quality comes from talc and cornflour mixed with glycerine which are all pretty harmless to anyone.

MY VIEWS

Well I have tried it in all ways . Sadly my creative efforts are a bit pathetic and would win no prizes. It works brilliantly as a soap and I have used it for hand washing and body washing and had no problems and the scent is really strong and it lathers quite well though it is best squished into a sort of paste I have found.

As a bubble bath you end up with lots of bubbles and a nice creamy gentle vanilla smelling bath with a sort of slightly yellowy tinge. You have to work quite hard to get the FUN into a paste of well broken up and then swirl the water around otherwise you get left with yellow bits in the bottom of the bath which have not melted. The bath is not coloured after it has emptied and I just swill a bit of clean water around after and it is fine.

The scent is not so strong so doesn’t really carry too far into the room and around about but it does last quite well on my skin too after I have dried myself. It isn’t that moisturising so you may have to put some body lotion on if you have dry skin.

As a shampoo it was okay but it is not something I would use every day. You could take a chunk away with you in your hand baggage and it would be fine for a few days but I found I really needed to make a paste first then use conditioner afterwards. I can’t say it is one I would buy to use just a a shampoo but if bathing children then it is handy to know you can wash them from top to toe with one item and they can play with it too.

WHAT DO CHILDREN THINK?
Obviously I am not the target audience for the play element so I tested it on my grandchildren. They loved the fact that they could play with it and squish it around. I have to say they creations were no better than mine but they enjoyed playing with it. They also loved the fact that the water turned a sort of yellow colour but did prefer then green one in reality as that was more obvious a colour. They still enjoyed the fact that they could ‘paint’ themselves yellow when it was wet.

I would say that it was a success FUN wise. I didn’t wash their hair as I wasn’t risking the stinging eyes possibility. I always use a baby shampoo on any of them even the eldest at aged 8 as I don’t want any sore eyes. They all smelled nice after their bath and really enjoyed playing with the FUN green. They are asking for different colours now so I said I would get some others to try!

RECOMMENDED?
Yes I think the children really loved it and anything that makes bath time FUN is a good thing. The colour is really strong and that was a plus with the kids. They loved squishing it and making shapes but it is a bit limited what you can shape it in to. The youngest liked using it to cut our pastry shapes on the table and once she had finished we washed her hands and she loved the fact that they made bubbles and were yellow!
