Review: Lush Sparkly Pumpkin Bubble Bar
It’s the season of pumpkins, ghost stories, trick ‘r treat, horror movies, and.. glitter. Because what is a typical Halloween bath without glitters?! That’s why Lush decided to bring back Sparkly Pumpkin bubble bar, making its appearance once again this Halloween. It’s a classic in the Halloween range since 2014, and today I’ll show you why!
If you’re curious about this bath bomb, then keep on reading.

Lush Sparkly Pumpkin Bubble Bar costs £4.95 / $7.95 and is part of the Halloween range. This sparkly bubble bar has been around for a while, since 2014 to be exact! Clearly a favorite among the people. This sparkly pumpkin is easy to crumble under the running tap, which makes for a nice colored bath, a lovely scent in the bathroom and of course: lots of bubbles. You can use as much or as little as you want. I usually get 2 or 3 baths out of these bubble bars!
The bubble bar contains juniper oil, lime oil and grapefruit oil. The scent is sweet and fruity, but also has a warm note because of the juniper. Because of this, I think the scent is perfect for this season! It’s a festive scent, and it will definitely lift your spirits. The lime can be smelled pretty good as well, which makes this scent a sweet, invigorating and cheerful scent. There’s currently no other products sharing this scent, although the discontinued Mr. Punch Soap shared its scent with this bubble bar.
What do I think?
Upon holding the bubble bar under the running tap, the water quickly turns to a yellow/orange shade. Bubbles are starting to come alive and the scent is slowly being released into the bathroom. When I hold the bubble bar under the running water, I notice that the golden, glittery layer is immediately rinsed off. Underneath that is a simple, orange bubble bar. I wonder if you’ll get glitters in the water when using it the next time? 🤔 When I break the bubble bar in two and crumble one half in my hand, I simply hold it under the running water, with an almost closed hand. There’s more and more bubbles now, and the water gradually turns a darker shade of orange.
Eventually the water was a pretty shade of yellow/orange and the surface was covered in bubbles. The fruity aroma was slightly present in the bathroom, I didn’t really detect the scent after 15 minutes anymore. In the water there’s some golden glitters, it looks gorgeous. I wouldn’t even need to combine this bubble bar with a bath bomb — it’s gorgeous on its own! Afterwards my skin felt softer, and I could spot a few glitters on my skin, here and there. I don’t think I’d buy this bubble bar again — but that’s also because I just don’t use them a lot. But I will definitely enjoy this bubble bar for the time being!
