Lush Ma Bar Bubble Bar
Advantages: Smells like toffee's and honey and all things nice
Disadvantages: Can turn bath water a murky colour
As a self confessed Lush-ite, it may not surprise you to learn that I have tried pretty much all of their Bubble Bars, and Ma Bar is no exception.
The title "Ma Bar" reflects the fact that this bubble bar really does smell like a Mars Bar! However "Ma" actually stands for Mother, as this product was originally created for Mothers day but after it became so popular, they decided not to retire it (I wish they would do the same with the Snow Fairy range!). The ingredients include cocoa powder, sweet wild orange oil which in turn give off wonderful toffee and honey aromas. The mix of cream/brown with it's design also reflects my idea of a Mars Bar, and what with the sugar cube in the middle, it is bursting with sweet aromas.
As with most bubble bars I tend to break them up so I get more use out of them, as each Ma Bar costs £2.45, which would be expensive to use up in a single bath! I would advise caution over using the brown coloured side in a bath, as it tends to make the bath go an unpleasant brown colour. Even if the smell is off toffee and honey, it still isn't visually nice to look at!
Lush recommend crumbling this under a warm running tap, which will create lots of bubbles however you can also drop it in the bath and let it crumble on it's own. If you rub some of this on your skin, you will find it makes your skin smell just as lovely as the product, and will not irritate skin (even sensitive skin).
I have bought this product for both myself and as a present for people. As it smells so divine, it in turn makes the atmosphere around it smell great too, including bedrooms or indeed present boxes. As Lush is against animal testing and uses all natural ingredients where possible, it also makes for a guilt free present, or treat for yourself. I would certainly recommend trying Ma Bar as it definitely helps me to relax if I have one of these in my bath, and what with the gorgeous candy-esque smell it is guaranteed to put anyone at ease and make them go "Ahh". Definitely one to try!
Summary: A great treat and makes for an ideal present too
