Lush Rose Jam Bubbleroon Review

Lush's Bubbleroons are "inspired by delicious handmade macaroons." Their Rose Jam scent is "based on decadent, traditional Turkish recipe for rose jam that our Turkish rose absolute supplier shared with us every year and is made with our sophisticated new rose perfume. Rose oil and rose absolute not only smell amazing but they are also fantastic for soothing dry, sensitive skin. The rosy fragrance paired with the coconut oil 'icing' that sticks the two halves of the Bubbleroon together to make for a majorly moisturizing, softening, and luxurious soak". I won this Lush Bubble Bar in Lipstick-Lust's giveaway. Each Rose Jam Bubbleroon contains 3.5oz and sells for $6.25. The Rose Jam Bubbleroon is handmade and vegan friendly. As you know, Lush is a cruelty free company. This bath product is made in Canada. 

 Lush's Bubbleroons are meant to look like chunky macaroon. Rose Jam is light pink in color with a little bit of a white, powdery coating. This bubble bar came in a 100% biodegradable, recyclable baggie. Lush says their Bubbleroons are good for two baths, I used it for three. Rose Jam Bubbleroon has a soft, creamy, slightly moist texture that makes it easy to break up by hand.
 With my first Lush Bubble Bar I didn't know how to get the most out of it. Now I know to use the stocking method (I can write a post on it if yinz want). The Rose Jam Bubbleroon melts quickly, tinting the water ever so slightly pink. This solid bubble bath products a light layer of fluffy, fragrant bubbles. Unfortunately the bubbles aren't very long lasting - they start to dissipate almost immediately, and are gone within ten minutes. The Rose Jam Bubbleroon is supposed to be moisturizing, but I don't notice it. The Creamy Candy Bubble Bar is significantly more moisturizing and this bubble bar.

I'm not typically a fan of floral or rose based scents, but I like Rose Jam. My friend and fellow blogger, Carly of The Science of Chic is a Rose Jam fan girl and I can see why. While still in solid form, Rose Jam is extremely fragrant - smelling strongly of sweet roses. The scent is like a sweeter version of the equally potent Ro's Argan Body Conditioner. Surprisingly, the Rose Jam fragrance gets much weaker in the bath. The scent lingers softly on my skin and towels for a couple hours.
Lush's Rose Jam is nice, but not a must-try. The scent is strong, purely rose. This bubble bar bubbles up nicely, but it isn't long lasting. This bubble bar isn't as moisturizing as Lush makes it out to be, if you're looking for a moisturizing bath you should opt for Creamy Candy. Lush Bubbleroons seem to be a nice, occasional treat. I wouldn't repurchase the Rose Jam Bubbleroon, but I enjoyed using it. Rose fanatics will certainly enjoy it, it just isn't for me.

  1. I love the macaron design, but I do think a product like this should do more than give a little scent for the price you pay.
