Firstly before I start, I would just like to say that whoever's idea it was at Lush HQ to discontinue this amazing bubble bar should be sacked. I am still confused as to why it was discontinued as it was one of the best selling bubble bars and it has never made an appearance on Retro. *rant over*
The first thing I think of whenever I hear the name Green Day is the band (who I also love). I am not sure if it was named after them or not. I think it was one of the reasons. When Green Day was available it cost £2.75 for a 100g bubble bar.
When you sniff this bubble bar, it is like stepping into a forest and taking a deep breath. It is a gorgeous scent; it is how I imagine the forest smells in that scene in Twilight when Bella discovers Edward is a vampire. It is a calming bubble bar and makes you feel very earthy. It is a scent which is unisex as both men and women alike like it. The scent is a combination of woody patchouli, nettle, clary sage and cedarwood bath. The cedarwood is very prominant. I know alot of people are put off by patchouli but I honestly have never been able to smell it.
When crumbled, it turns your bath a lovely forest green and creates mounds of bubbles. Once in the bath, the scent envelopes around you and relaxes and clears your mind. It is a very daydream type of scent. I always find myself just laying in the bath, peaceful and relaxed thinking and daydreaming.
The scent sticks to your skin and lasts for a long time after the bath. it also stays lingering in the bathroom for quite a while too.
If you can get hold of one of these bubble bars, grab it! It is worth it. Highly recommended. I miss these terribly and wish Lush would bring them back.
The Green Day Bubble Bar is another great product from Lush
The bubbles that is produces are abundant! You only need a small amount of the product to create a mass of little bubbles that smell divine.
The smell is very earthy and herby. It contains one of my favourite smells, Cedarwood. Yum! This is an earthy smell yet quite sweet at the same time. There is also Patchouli, Sage, Nettle and Pine in this bubble bar. The combination is delightful. It is a little bit like the smell you get in a crystal shop that burns essential oils continually. But it is not as intrusive. It is a watered down version of this smell. It is very woody and natural. I just love it. I did not think this sort of smell would work in a bath but it really does, and I find it so relaxing, it is almost as though the essential oils have affected my mind. I cannot help but lie back and day dream.
The water smells so strong that the scent stays on your skin after you have dried. Your skin is made soft by soaking in the water and you senses are awakened.
It is £2.75 for 100 grams. Worth every penny - and I rarely say that about Lush products because they are quite expensive.
I ADORE Green Day!
It is perfect in every way. It's scent, how it looks and how it feels in the bath. Green Day is scented with Patchouli, Nettle, Cedar-wood and Clary Sage which makes it a very nice woody, fresh smell suitable for males and females.
Green Day is a green, earthy scent but it isn't at all like Greenwash soap. I think if you describe a product as earthy and green it is thought of as been 'grassy' but it really isn't. It is so fresh and clean smelling. Perfect for when you need to relax.
I can make this 100g Bubble Bar Slice last for about 6 baths. I find that with Green Day hardly any of the slice is needed to be crumbled in the tub for a lovely strong bath. Green Day turns the bath water a deep forest green. I find that the beautiful scent lingers on my skin for ages after my bath.
A 100g Green Day costs £2.75. The good thing about Bubble Bar Slices is that as they are handmade a majority of them are oversized! As Bubble Bar Slices do- Green Day softens the coloured bath water and creates mountains of bubbles.
It is defiantly my favourite bath product!
I bought a lot of ballistics and bubble bars from Lush recently and have been slowly working my way through them. So far, I've only got round to using the ballistics, but on my birthday the other day, I decided to go for a bubble bar. I've only used one bubble bar before, which was the creamy candy one, and it was OK, but I wasn't overly keen on it, so I wasn't too sure what to expect from this one.
Out of all the bubble bars, this isn't one I had even really registered in my mind before, but (and I know this sounds absolutely ridiculous) I picked this up in the shop because it reminded me of Kermit the frog!! It's a bright green colour, pebble shaped and has a darker green star shape on top. The star just reminded me a bit of that thing round Kermit's neck!! I was surprised when I picked it up that it smelled so good too, so I decided to get one.
For anyone who isn't familiar with the concept of a bubble bar, the best way to describe it is bbuble bath in solid form. I broke the bar in two to get two uses out of it, and found it broke a lot easier than the creamy candy bar, which I feel is probably due to this one being a flatter shape.
Amongst other things, the bar contains the following ingredients..
Cedar wood oil - This has a calming effect and is good for calming anxiety
Clary Sage Oil - Known for its relaxing properties
Olibanum Oil - This has anti-septic properties, so is good for spots
Patchouli Oil - Which is often used in aromatherapy to aid relaxation
So, basically, I was expecting a highly relaxing bath.
To use the bar, you simply crumble it under running water. I found that it crumbled quite easily, but some of the larger pieces of the bar did not dissolve straight away and I had to crush them under the water.
The bubble bar turned the water a lovely shade of green, although to be honest it was difficult to see the water for all the fluffy white bubbles on top of it! I was really surprised at the amount of bubbles considering that I had only used half of the bar - had I used the whole thing they would probably be spilling over the edge of the bath!
The aroma that filled the room was really strong, and I have to say, given that I normally like sweet or citrus scents, I'm really surprised at how much I loved this. Lush describe it as being like a walk in the woods, with scents of trees, moss and herbs. I couldn't agree more, it's like the scent of the forest! I find a lot of 'green' smelling products just smell like pine, and although I guess there is a hint of pine in this, it just smells so much more luxurious than it's competitors. It's hard to describe, but it seems to have a bit of a creamy, fresh, woody scent, which is very outdoorsy, and also, I feel quite unisex, so great for everyone.
Right from the start I could feel the oils in the water, making it feel soft and silky on my skin. I was also surprised at how soft the bubbles felt - that may sound a weird thing to say - but they felt different to the bubbles created by a regular bubble bath and were incredibly creamy and silky.
I must admit, the scent, the bubbles and the feel of the oils in the water, did make this a luxurious and incredibly relaxing bath. I felt so chilled out, I didn't want to get out!
When I finally got out of the bath, I found that my skin felt very soft and smooth, and I was glad that the scent stayed on me for some time afterwards. The bathroom was filled with the luxurious scent of the bubble bar, and I was glad to see that the green colouring had not stained my bath at all.
This bar costs £2.75 and weighs 100g, if you don't have a Lush store near to you, you can order online at www.lush.co.uk I would say you can only get two uses, possibly three at a push, out of this, so obviously it's not as economical as a bottle of bubble bath, but I think of them as being more a luxury product than something you would use every day.
As you can probably tell already, I loved the bar and everything about it, and I can't wait to use the other half! Given my rocky start with bubble bars, I am now converted and cant wait to use the others that are sitting in the cupboard. I would definitely recommend this one, five stars for Green Day!
Stuck in the city? Bathe in the scent of trees, moss and herbs / Whose brilliant idea was it to expect us to produce our best work confined in industrial units, surrounded by ringing phones, lit by strip lights? When did you last hear someone say, I have my best ideas stuck in the office, working to deadlines? To solve our problems, nothing beats a walk in the woods, inhaling herbal scents of crushed leaves, pine needles and moss / The second best thing is a calming, clarifying, clary sage and cedarwood Green Day bath /
