Mummy and a mind REVIEW – Lush launches ‘FUN’

on 08/10/2012

As a mummy (and a mind) of 2 young children I am always on the lookout for new ways to keep them entertained, so when I was given a pack of Lush’s new FUN to try I couldn’t wait to get it home for them to play with.

As with many Lush products, you smell FUN before you see it. We had the green one, which has a strong citrusylemon and lime scent that escapes through the see-through biodegradable wrapper. Combine the smell with the bright green colour and I wasn’t surprised when my baby boy’s first reaction was to grab a piece and try to eat it!

My 3 year old daughter, with a much more sensible head on her shoulders, decided to make a cat with hers (after telling her brother “It’s not a sweetie, you’re supposed to do making with it”). The texture of FUN is a bit crumbly initially but with a little bit of work, kneading and squashing, it moulds together and becomes more like playdough.

When I told her she could take it in the bath with her to make bubbles she was very impressed (bubbles are a favourite at the moment) so we broke off a small piece and crumbled it under the running water. For a 3 year old, the most important thing with a bath product is just how many bubbles it makes. Happily FUN came up trumps so both kids were dropped in and a proper bubble bath ensued.

After a splashing session we used another bit of FUN to wash with, as a straight replacement for soap, and then another bit for hair washing. It lathered up nicely and rinsed out easily. Once all the bubbles had disappeared we saw that the water had changed to a lovely bluey-green colour.

In the end we were left with 2 lovely smelling, clean children with soft and fluffy hair, begging mummy for some more FUN to play with.

We only used a little chunk for bubbles, washing two children and hair, so were left with plenty for future use. At £5 a pack (with 10p from each sale going to children affected by the Fukushima disaster), FUN would make an entertaining, as well as useful, present for children (although I’m sure Mum will be ‘borrowing’ some too), and with 5 different colours available you will be spoilt for choice.
