I was invited to a special event in Covent Garden last week, when one of my fave beauty stores Lush, launched a brand new product called ‘FUN’. This proved to be a fab event and a whole lot of fun, although I really wished I had taken my little boy Joe along to take part in the fun.
‘FUN’ is a brand new wonder product, aimed at children, but really for children of all ages. Imagine a plastacine/playdoh that your child could happily use in the bath, and then use to wash both their hair and body and you have the general gist of FUN. It is the ideal product for encouraging those kids who hate bathtime into the tub, giving them the opportunity for messy play that actually gets them clean – a real novelty.
At the launch we were given both a demonstration of FUN and an opportunity to try it out for ourselves. In water the bar lathers up into a lovely soap and can then be used to wash. Running it under a cold tap enables you to use it as a gloriously coloured bubble bath. It is also suitable to use as a shampoo. Being preservative free means it is suitable for even the most delicate of skins. And the scent, of course, being a Lush product, is truly gorgeous.
Lots of the mommy bloggers attending got really creative with the products, creating dinosaurs, caterpillars and all manner of fab objects. The children really enjoyed it too, getting messy and smelling adorable all at the same time. I’m not creative so I just had fun squishing the bar around.
Fun comes in five different shades and fragrances, Blue being a mix of lavender, Moroccan chamomile and chamomile blue essential oils, hence making it a perfect choice before bedtime. There are also the green shade a citrus burst of tangy lime and lemon essential oils, pink which is Jam packed with the fruity, candy smells of childhood, Red which contains mandarin and orange essential oils to make you think of sunny orange groves and freshly squeezed juice and finally yellow which is full of creamy vanilla tones to evoke thoughts of seaside ice creams, granny’s baking and home comforts.
10p from the sales of each FUN bar goes to help children in Japan affected by the Fukushima disaster.
