Bathing with the Boogg

When the Boogg was released in Lush this Christmas I fell in love.  I stocked up before even trying them.  Look at these little guys, they're SO cute!
The Boogg £2.25 each from Lush
The idea for The Boogg came from a Swedish tradition called The Burning of the Boogg ceremony that takes place every year after Christmas.  In Sweden, the local citizens fill a snowman's head full of fireworks and then put it on a bonfire and wait for the fireworks to explode.  It is thought that the longer the fireworks take to explode then the better the summer will be.

The Boogg as created by Lush, is a cute little snowman bath ballistic filled with colourful little pieces of bubble bar.

Lets see this little guy in action...
After hitting the water, the Boogg started fizzing and moving around the bath and straight away creamy white froth started to appear and the little bubble bars started to move out on their own.  They aren't big enough to colour the bath water the way that normal bubble bars tend to do or create long lasting bubbles which is disappointing but it still looks pretty for a while.  Judging by these photos, I think the effect of the Boogg would be a bit better in a smaller bath, ours is pretty big!  Next time, I'm going to put two Boogg's in at once.  The effect of the Boogg was over pretty quickly but it was great while it lasted.  I got in the bath and lay for a while in the few bubbles that the Boogg had left which was lovely and relaxing, which I think was because of the smell.

The smell is lovely, although not a scent I usually enjoy.  The Boogg is a herbal scent which is undoubtedly the reason why it is quite calming.  Armoise, Rosemary and Clary Sage are some of the oils that it contains and along with lots of other natural herbal products.

Overall, I love the Boogg but I think its more because of how cute it is and the idea of the bubble bars inside the bath ballistic than because of the effect that you actually get with it.  I'm looking forward to using two of them in my bath at the same time to create a bigger, more lasting effect... well, that's the idea!

Did you check out the Boogg over Christmas?  Did you stock up on any of their limited Christmas stock?  What Lush products are you loving at the moment?

  1. Your pictures of it look amazing, mine didn't go anything like that. I was a bit disappointed with this but I was hoping to try it again so maybe next year if it comes back. :)
