      Bubble bar from Retro Lush

      I am trying to work my way through as many Lush bath products as I can. After discovering the Retro range last year, I began to order products from this range too. One of these was a bubble bar called Phoenix.

      Phoenix was chosen as a possible name for the new company to rise from the ashes of mail-order company Cosmetics To Go (this company was eventually named Lush!). The name is used to symbolise this revival and also as a symbol for the supposed effects of the bubble bar, which are to revive and refresh after illness - self-inflicted or otherwise!

      The bubble bar contains cinnamon and sandalwood to warm and revive. It is suitable for vegans and has a lovely warming scent that is slightly festive. Unfortunately it doesn't look too good. With a name like Phoenix you might expect a yellow, orange or even gold bubble bar but it is a pale brown colour surrounded by a dark brown layer.

      As usual with Lush bubble bars, I cut it in half first as only half a bar is needed to create a good amount of bubbles. I crumbled half the bar into the bath and lots of bubbles were produced. Luckily the water didn't change colour - I didn't fancy bathing in a brown bath!

      In the bath, I could detect the warming and reviving scent of cinnamon and sandalwood although the smell wasn't as strong as when the bar was whole. The water felt soft too and when I got out my skin felt softer and I didn't have to use much moisturiser. I did feel refreshed and revived after my bath.

      Would I recommend this bubble bar? Well, to be honest, although I enjoyed using it I probably wouldn't repurchase. It's expensive at £4.60, and though it smells nice it's nothing really special and doesn't turn the water a pretty colour. I can't recommend this particular bubble bar with great enthusiasm, although there's nothing in particular wrong with it.
