It was very pretty too unlike some of their products which look like something a pre-school child makes in playdough. This was obviously a pretty deep red tulip and there was a dark green raffia sort of bow under the flower on the stick.
USING MY TULIP WAND
The idea of this is that you swish it around under the tap as the bath is filling. You keep it there for as long as you want depending on how many bubbles you like in your bath. If the tap is running the bubbles continue to grow even after you remove the butterfly so don’t be too generous. The smell as you swish it under the tap the smell comes out really well and the lovely sweet orange citrus creamy like a orange ice cream scent fills the bathroom.
Now this is when it becomes a bit tricky. What do you do with a very wet, slightly soggy dissolving tulip? I found it was very important to make sure it dried off and wasn’t left sitting in a wet pool otherwise when you come back it was a pink puddle with a solid bit that didn’t much look like a tulip. I found if I had it upright in a jug or vase for a while then once it was dry I could lie it down. If I wanted to however I also found that it looked quite nice as a decoration when standing upright in a nice container. I had two as I said, one tulip and one butterfly so they looked quite sweet together.
IN I GO
Once the bath was suitable bubbly and the right temperature I got in. The water smelled wonderful and felt nice and soft and creamy, under the bubbles the water was a delicate shade of red. As long as I didn’t add any soap to the water the bubbles stayed nice and thick. I did find that once I washed my underarms with soap that the bubbles disappeared quite quickly. The smell however stayed quite strong although this was more noticeable once I was out of the bath. I went out of the bathroom and came back in and that is when I became aware of how strong the scent was n the room still.
BANG FOR BUCK?
They say that you will get around five or six baths from one wand and I got more than that by careful use. I don’t really want a bath overflowing with bubbles so didn’t run it under the tap for ages. I also made sure I dried mine off carefully after use. It went pretty hard and dry after a while in between uses so it lasted well between.
ANY NOT SO GREAT INGREDIENTS?
Surely not I hear you say. This is Lush after all but sadly they do still add a few ingredients which are considered safe to use in toiletries but do cause skin irritation and eczema to some people. These ingredients are Sodium Laureth Sulfate, and Lauryl Betaine and if you do suffer from skin rashes then do check that these are not ingredients you are allergic to. My step daughter cannot use products with these ingredients so it makes us very aware of which toiletries contain these.
Yes I think I would. Although they seem very expensive initially you do get a good few uses from each wand, at least eight baths I got from each of mine. The smell was wonderful and I got lots of bubbles in each bath but do be careful to let it dry between uses. It didn’t make my skin feel any different really but it smelled lovely and stayed on my skin after I dried myself off and it also air freshened the bathroom and the room next door which was a bonus. I always love my little bath time treats so I always feel relaxed and mellow after them so the essential oils obviously work but I can’t say the aphrodisiac element was obvious!
This tulip looks soo cute and smells heavenly.
Really sweet and yummy
It makes loads of bubbles when you swish it in bath water and i love the idea that i can use it more than once.
Skin feels soft and clean after use
