Looking through my recent posts, I saw that I hadn’t done a Lush Review in a while even though I can assure you I have still been using their products non stop. So here I have a sweetly scented bubble bar review for you 🙂 Onto the information from the Lush Website;
Cost & Weight – $7.50 for a 100g bar (that can be used many times).
Ingredients – Sodium Bicarbonate, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Fair Trade Organic Cocoa Butter, Lauryl Betaine, Cornflour, Perfume, Almond Oil, Vanilla Absolute, Citric Acid, Titanium Dioxide, Laureth 4, Alpha Isomethyl Ionone, Colour 45410, Colour 14700, Colour 17200.
Scent – super sweet like fairy floss and candy 🙂 it smelled quite similar to Lush’s signature ‘snow fairy’ scent.
Here’s how Lush depicts this bubble bar on their website;
“If you’d normally reach for a sweet treat to lift your mood, this bubble bar does just the job. Its sweet candy floss smell raises your energy levels and perks you up. It also offers extra moisturisation than the average bubble bar as it has a blend of almond and cocoa butter. Creamy Candy contains almond oil and butter chunks that melt onto the surface of the water, giving skin a velvety texture.”
I personally like to bathe in bubbles which these bars create as well as a bath bomb does for colour, smell and the silky smooth feeling afterwards. However, to test out this bubble bar properly, I thought I’d settle for a bath using only this to see what it really does. Bubble bars are basically meant to be broken up and crumpled under running water to produce a tub brimming with bubbles. I find that all bubble bars end up crumbling out of my hand and into the water while I’m trying to use it, leaving annoying little crumbs of it at the bottom of my bath. The creaming candy bubble bar was actually not one of the worse ones this occurs with and I was really happy not too many bits made it into the water undissolved. The little bits that did make it actually dissolved really quickly which was nice. As expected, a little went a long way and I had a tub full of bubbles quite quickly, the scent super sweet just how I like it 🙂
Pros of this product include the bubbles (of course!) and the scent, which wasn’t as strong as one that a bath bomb would give, however, it was still really nice and sweet which I thought would pair really well with an equally sweet bath bomb 🙂
Cons of this product include the little crumbly chunks that end up in my bath, even though they weren’t too bad, I just find this so annoying and it’s basically a con for every bubble bar I have used 😦 I would also much prefer the scent to be a bit stronger and for it to give my bath water some colour! I know when I usually bathe, I also use a bath bomb which does this but I feel like you shouldn’t need two products and Lush should really bring out a ‘perfect bath all-in-one’ product 🙂
Overall this bubble bar is really good and I know I will get lots (possibly 5 but I’ll let you know) good uses out of it. I know next time I will be using it in conjunction with a bath bomb which I think I’ll enjoy a lot more just because I’m not a fan of clear bathwater 🙂
Really impressed with the smell and found it didn’t wear off or ‘disappear’ as quickly as a lot of the other bubble bars I have used which was really good.
Rating – 🙂 🙂 🙂 , two smileys were lost because of the crumbs and lack of colour, however, this is really good compared to other bubble bars, maybe bubble bars are just not my favourite Lush product altogether.
Thanks for reading this Lush Review, sorry I haven’t posted in a while, I’m working on a September favourites now but have actually been on holidays which I’ll also be mentioning in a ‘coming soon’ post. Be prepared and keep a look out :). Love you all,
