Out of all of LUSH's bubble bars, this is by far my favourite.
The bar is huge, oval shaped, and swirls pink and white. I only use a little bit each bath, regardless of LUSH's recommendation to use half the bar per bath, because I've found a little of this goes a long way. Just crumble a handful under the running water and lo-and-behold - pink water and bubbles galore!
It smells absolutely divine. It's fruity and sweet, but manages to still smell somewhat fresh and not stifling. It's advertised as blackcurrant and bergamot, but I think it's a uniquely sweet smell which differs from blackcurrant.
At as much as £4.25 for one bar, it's definitely on the more expensive side of LUSH, especially if you stick to the guidelines and use half the bar in each bath. But if you don't over use it, it lasts a good amount of time, while the bubbles are plentiful and the bath water smells and looks gorgeous. Keeping this in mind, I think the bubble bar is worth the money.
To top it off, as always it's made of a combination of natural ingredients and safe synthetics, and isn't tested on animals, so it's a suitable treat for all vegans and animal lovers alike.
Many of you already know I am a Lush addict, I love many of their products but due to the fact they have so many and are so often adding to the list I am always trying new ones.
I first actually read about these on here and thought it sounded brilliant so next time I was in I treated myself to one.
About the Product ....
The product is a large oval type shape, non of them are uniform in size or shape I guess because they are hand rolled but perhaps thats just part of the look they are going for. The product is basically a bubble bath in bar form, this particular bar is a bright pink colour with a white spiral running through the middle of it. The scent of this product is really sweet berry smell to me and smells really nice. When I first saw these I these in the store I assumed they would last for lots of baths because they are large, sadly they usually manage around 3 baths.
The bars are solid to the touch but are soft enough that they can be broken into pieces easily, they do crumble a bit though so it is best to break them over a sink or bath.
To use ....
To use you simply hold the bar under the running water and it will start to break apart and the bath will fill up with bubbles. The only bad point I find with these bars is that if I use too much they do mark the sides of our white bath so I need to use less than I would like. The water with this bar turns a bright pink like the initial bar and smells just as yummy as the product.

The bars cost £4.75 each.
I like these products but I do think they are extremely expensive, if you think about it you can get a liquid bubble bath than can do around 30 bath loads for half the price of one of these bars. I wish they did not colour the bath too, although it cleans off it is an extra chore. They are really good fun for a kids bath though!
I do have to note that I did have a bit of an issue using a few of these in a row with my sensitive skin, I think it was the SLS but I did get a rash but I had been using them a lot and soaking for a long time in the bath.
It wasn't until I joined Dooyoo that I discovered the wonders of the shop Lush and began to frequent or or buy from its website. My local Lush store is a 40 minute bus ride away and I can't drive so I tend to prefer the website. One problem with the website is that you can't get the full aromatic, sensory experience you can get in store. Though you can see the product and read what's in it so that you can guess how it might smell, you still miss out on that. This means that my website bought products are typically bought on the appearance of the item and this one does not let down. The website image is a bit more dizzying than the one used here, as the swirl goes on and on. It also sits in a stack of other bubble bars which makes it all that more enticing. The name is fairly vague also and so before using it I had little assurance in what it would actually be like.
What it is is a bubble bar. You drop it in the bath and it creates a swirl of foam and froth that fluffs up the water and makes your bath time experience feel much more peaceful, hence the name. The description is quite airy-fairy and though it seems a little cliche, it is nice to have those bath time experiences from time to time to have a break and time for yourself. It suggests you break off half as it is 'supersized' but I tend to ration it out a little better than that as a smaller chunk still makes plenty of bubbles. It also, of course, means I get more for my money which is worthwhile as the product is £4.50 which is a little steep for those of us who don't frequent beauty aisles and treat themselves very often. I use Lush as a treat factory in fact and its the place I go to get my non-essentials and little extras so the price is ok for that one off.
The main ingredient is blackcurrant and so that is the most dominant smell once you mix it into the bath water. The water turns a rosey pink colour and oozes a rich blackcurrant squash smell. It has a general berry smell in general and coats the skin leaving it nice and soft.
I would recommend this bubble bar as it exactly what you want for a nice, relaxing bath. It dissolves easily under running water and froths up quickly creating a ton of bubbles. The smell is very sweet and feminine and also strong so that it fragrances whatever it is around (I leave it in my underwear drawer and they always come out smelling really strong of berries so it is obviously quite pungent). If you cut off the pieces into smaller chunks you get much greater use out of it and I think you still get plenty of bubble for your bath. It is like a bath bomb but with much more baths out of the block.
I was given a Lush Comforter Bubble Bar as part of a gift set for my last birthday and before that I had been into the shop but I had thought that everything looked lovely but far too expensive for me to buy for myself. I have heard a lot of really positive things about Lush products though and I was very keen to try this bubble bar out for myself and see how it worked, not having ever used such a thing before.
If I were to buy this for myself then it would cost me £4.50 and personally I think this is a lot of money for what would only give me about four baths (if I was lucky). The first time I used this I was surprised how pink the bath water went as I had only used a little bit. I crumbled a bit off the corner and let the hot water run on the top of it and it soon dissolved and melted and made the water smell very sweet. I like the smell though I know my friend says she really dislikes this because it is a very sweet smell. It's very girly and feminine and I wouldn't imagine a bloke wanting to use one of these.
The bar made the water really foamy and it felt very soft and gentle on my skin. It meant I didn't really have to use as much soap as I normally would but the thing I did notice about it was that there was definitely some sort of film on my skin after I had got out of the bath and got myself dried off. It made my skin feel soft to touch and it was very gentle but I could feel a slight film which I am not used to and wasn't very keen on.
I put the rest of the bar in my undies drawer but I use some more again the other weekend and I think I liked it more the second time I used it, for some reason.
I'd be really happy if someone bought me another one of these for a present for Christmas and I really cannot afford to buy one for myself. It's a nice treat to use and it didn't feel too soapy but I wasn't so keen on the feeling afterwards.
I'd still recommend it though because I liked the experience of using it.
Like a lot of people, I love Lush. While their products are, in my opinion, a little expensive to use all the time, this is one of the products that I normally have in my bathroom though for when I want to pamper myself. Lush say that this was developed to give people a real sense of comfort, to give a similar effect to hugging or a snugly blanket.
This bar is eye catching. A fuscia and white swirled bar, this is thick and flat, unlike the bath bombs that are usually round and difficult (though not impossible) to break.
Unlike the bath bombs which you can only use once, you just crumble off a piece of this and add to running water. To get lots of bubbles, break off a piece of this and hold it under the running tap and let the water dissolve it, though I usually just break off a chunk and throw it into the bath.
I love the smell of this. There is a hint of berries and smells very sweet. The sweet smell could be overpowering, but this remains on just the right side of sweet and reminds me of the smell of melting marshmallows.
This bath bar has the effect of leaving my bath smelling gorgeous, with pink water and also leaves my skin feeling really moisturised. The scent does last, and even the next day, I can still smell this on my skin. Lush recommends that you break this into 4 pieces, but I find that I get similar results using a much smaller bit. I don't have as many bubbles, but I still get the smell and the moisturising effect.
I find that using this in a warm bath does help relax me. The combination of the gorgeous bubbles and the warm water gives me a sense of calm.
I usually have two of these at any one time. One that lives in my bathroom and the other which lives in my wardrobe. I find that the scent of this really does cling to my clothes and the scent lasts. I have had people ask me what perfume I was wearing when I have left this on my knitwear shelf as the lingering scent really lasts.
This costs £4.50 and is available from any lush store or www.lush.co.uk. It is slightly expensive, but much better value than the bath bombs and I find that one of these does me about 10 baths, as I don't use a large chunk every time I use this.
I pick this up quite a lot when I visit Lush, it's one of my go-to products when I can't decide what to buy.
Lush always do their best to help the environment by eliminating the need for plastic packaging and creating solid products like this bubble bar.
The bar is pink and white swirled together, and smells sweetly of blackcurrant. It's a very girly scent and one which I wish they'd put into some other products such as shower gel or perfume! The bar itself is large and can be broken up to be put into several baths. I usually break mine into 3 parts but you would be able to do less or more depending on the amount of bubbles you want. It also makes it more purse friendly if you split it up into smaller bits.
When you crumble it in the bath water, it turns the water a bright shade of pink, and the bubbles created are plentiful and lovely and creamy. It smells faintly of blackcurrant but the smell isn't too strong and doesn't last that well. I have heard of people saying that the pink bathwater stains the bath, however that wasn't a problem for me at all and the bathwater drained away leaving no residue. The bar wasn't drying at all either and I have quite sensitive skin.
Price wise, this isn't the cheapest, costing £4.25, however it is a big bubble bar and does last a few baths as there is no need to use it all at once like I mentioned before.
I will continue to buy this as a treat, it isn't my favourite lush product of all time, but it falls within the top 5 :D
Remember those sweets you use to get when you were young, Fruit Salads, well this is what the smell of this Lush Bubble bar reminds me of. Those long warm Summer days, (yes we did use to have Summers way back when) when 5p would buy you a bag full of Blackjacks and Fruit Salads and your mum would tuck you up in bed making you feel safe and loved. Well having a bath with one of these in makes you feel just like that.
The Lush Comforter is bright pink and white in colour and just a small amount crumbled into your bath will turn the water a lovely shade of pink and produce a great amount of bubbles, put more in and the colour of the water deepens and the more bubbles you get. The scent is blackberry, but as I've already stated it does remind me of Fruit Salad sweets and it stays on your skin, which feels soft, once you're out of the bath and dried. The bubbles don't fade away too quickly whilst you're in the bath either, they do stay around for quite a way afterwards as well, even when the water has been emptied out, but just run the cold tap for a little while and they'll soon disperse. There are no oily residues left in your bath either which is always a plus after using such an item. (I have been know to break a little bit off and rub it directly onto my feet as an aid to getting rid of dry skin, it seems to work, for me at least, slightly as my feet always seem smoother.)
They're not cheap, but a little goes a long way, but they are a treat and a bath filled with Comforter bubbles is a great way to relax and unwind from a hard day at the office. They really do "wrap you in a fluffy pink blanket"
I don't often review Lush products because they are a little on the pricey side and I try not to spend too much of my hard-earned cash on toiletries. So I was delighted when I was given this 'Comforter' bubble bar as a gift.
The bar is solid in form and it came wrapped in the usual Lush paper tissue-style wrapping. When I opened it I got an immediate autumny waft of smell from it. This bar does smell strongly like berries, which I associate with autumn as we always go berry picking that time of year. There is also a hint of vanilla which gives it a yummy smell that makes me think or vanilla ice cream with berries.
Unfortunately though this item is for the bath and not the dinner plate! It is very delicious looking though, with beautiful white swirls blended with fuscia. The bar is a little crumbly and it feels slightly crumbly and soapy at the same time, giving the impression that this is exactly what a lovely bubble should feel like.
The Comforter bubble bar is designed to be dunked in the bath in one overly decadent use but I have been using small pieces of it to great effect, and still have enough left for a couple more baths. It crumbles very easily when wet so I normally break a bit off and just dunk that under the tap while it's running. The bubble bar disintegrates very quickly this way and fills the bathroom with a heady sweet but tangy smell, while filling the bath with bubbles and a pinkish tinge.
The first time I used the bar I had had quite a long day and was a bit achey and really looking forward to a bath. This bar did not let me down, I felt very relaxed by the essential oils in it and the comforting smell, and even the colour the bathwater went. I highly recommend it for use for unwinding after a hard day.
As with all bubble bar dome residue is left on your skin when you get out the bath. I found this pleasant and not overpowering and that I smelled nice for the rest of the day, but not just like soap as happens with some bath products. The bar is pleasant on the skin, not drying at all, which is great for me as I usually have quite dry skin.
After looking this up online I have found the price to be £4.25 for a 200g bar. This seems very expensive to me and I wouldn't buy it for myself, but I have been dropping hints to my husband already as my birthday is just around the corner! It is an excellent gift for any bath lover and I love the way the bathroom smells after I use it. The bath does get turned a pinkish colour that needs a scrub but it comes off easily enough, and the bath always needs scrubbing after use anyway. I will give this bar 5 stars as it certainly is very comforting, although also very tasty smelling and I don't know if that's a good thing or bad!
This is the largest Lush product that I have seen so far, although I am no way an expert on Lush and their cornucopia of (sometimes) delights. This is another of our "gift box from Granny" items, which was sent for my daughter primarily. We tend to bath together often, and although this is rarely relaxing in any way, it means that I do get to sample some of these gifts with her.
"Berry yourself under a blanket of soft fruit foam" say Lush.
Hmm. This is a big lump of blackcurranty, swirly sweetness. There is a very strong pong of candied vanilla but this is delicious rather than overpowering. The round chunk that we have is thick and oval shaped, with a very pronounced swirl pattern, created when the two colours were merged and rolled in the Lush factory. The colours are a dark magenta pink and a white/creamy colour, signifying the vanilla and blackcurrant aromas. I find the scent very similar to Creamy Candy.
Amongst the non-natural ingredients, there is Bergamot Oil, Cassis Absolute and Cypress Oil, but the vanilla and blackcurrant scent comes mostly from perfume.
This is a bubble bar, a solid bubble bath. To use it you simply crumble a piece under the hot tap. I have found that the best way of doing this for maximum bubble explosiveness is to place the chunk in a muslin and tie it directly under the stream from the hot tap. You use less this way, making the products more economical. This is more expensive than many of the bubble bars sold by Lush, but it is a whopper and can easily manage 6-8 baths.
This was another experience with my messy and noisy daughter. She crumbled it, talked to it and sniffed the resulting foam before making a beard with the bubbles. Standard stuff then. When we both got into the bath, the water was a very definite pink/purple colour, and the bubble pile was large. The blackcurrant and vanilla scents were strong but not too in your face and the water felt soft. The scented water definitely reminded me of summer fruits but unfortunately, some of this is chemical based.
The bubble bar is quite moisturising, although there is no layer of oil left on your skin as you would find with a bath melt for example. The cream of tartar softens the water too which is nice. The bubbles from just a little chunk of this were plentiful and stayed in the bath for 45 minutes. In fact there were possibly too many of them, although my daughter would probably disagree!
The bubble were hard to get rid off as the water drained away but that was sorted a few hours later, by a big water swish to remove the remaining ones. Our bath was not stained pink! There was no popping candy or glitter to traumatise me....
This bubble bar left our skin clean and relatively soft. Neither of us had any reactions to the chemicals in the product, although I would much prefer that they were not there at all. We have enough of this left for several other baths and this makes it not too expensive in the scheme of things. It is a luxury product and is certainly nice enough for a chill out experience.
Overall, the smell is very moreish and I can see why this is such a popular Lush product.

After a long and particularly horrid day there is nothing better than relaxing in a nice warm bath surrounded by fluffy bubbles while the most delightful fragrance fills the room. The Comforter bubble bar is perfect for these times and as I sink under the blanket of bubbles I really do feel all my worries and stress of the day just disappear.
I think that the concept of the bubble bar is great. Usually bubble bath comes in liquid form and needs preservatives to prevent the quality of the product from deteriorating too quickly, but this bubble bar is in solid form and is preservative free. Another advantage is that minimal packaging is used. The solid bar does not need a plastic container. It simply comes 'naked' You are able to pick whatever products you wish that are beautifully displayed in the Lush shop, and pop them in a paper bag in order to transport them home. The paper bag can then be recycled after use.
There are plenty of bubble bars to choose from all molded into different shapes and with a variety of different fragrances. However, The Comforter is definitely my favourite of all the bubble bars that are made by those lovely people at Lush. It is bigger than most of the other bars and is easily identified by its pink and white swirl design and its fruity blackcurrant fragrance that smells absolutely gorgeous.
To use this product you simply break a bit off and crumble it under the running water. Easy peasy! I like to give the bath water a little swish as well to create a few extra bubbles! Lush say that this bubble bar produces enough bubbly goodness for two baths, but I find there is an ample amount of bubbles produced to last four or five baths. In fact if I did use half of the bar for a single bath as they suggest I fear I may become lost under a huge mountain of bubbles! This bar produces a LOT of bubbles. They are good quality bubbles too, that actually last for the duration of my bath. If I rub the bubbles between my fingers I can feel the creamy silky texture. It creates a relaxing and luxurious bathing experience that is so lovely that I often find myself topping up the hot water because I stay in the bath so long it starts to go cold! Once I have finished bathing my skin feels lovely and soft and moisturised.
The beautiful blackcurrant scent is very uplifting and lasts for a long time after the bubbles have been rinsed away. It was this fragrance that actually enticed my partner into the wonderful world of Lush bathing products. After using this bubble bar one evening he said I smelled like delicious boiled sweets. I told him it was The Comforter bar and that next time he wanted a bath he should use some. Because it was in solid form he had no idea what to do with it. "Do I just chuck it in the bath then?" he asked me. So I ran the bath for him. On entering the bathroom I remember him exclaiming "Oh My God ... it's turned the bath water pink!!" Oops I had forgotten to mention that bit. It does turn the water a really beautiful shade of pink! Despite the colour of the water he had to admit he really did enjoy his bath. This was a few years ago now and many Lush products later he has discovered that his favourite bubble bar is 'Blue skies and fluffy white clouds.' It looks the same as The Comforter but it has blue and white swirls and earthy scents of patchouli and frankincense. He still wouldn't decline this very blackberry bubbly bath though, even if it does turn the water pink.
The Comforter currently retails at £4.25 each but the fact that this lasts four or five baths means it actually works out to be more economical than the bath bombs that are generally around £3-ish each for one single use. Of course I could always purchase bottles of bubble bath that are cheaper but the quality and fragrance of this Lush product is far superior. I think this bubble bar is well worth the money and I hope they never stop making it because it is one I like to treat myself to most often.
The Comforter really is a lovely product and makes my skin feel great after using it. The bubble bars are hand made using fresh ingredients and if you visit the Lush website you can actually view a short video about how it is made which is interesting. The ingredients are mixed in two separate batches, one white in colour and one pink. They are then weighed out and brought together, rolled up like a long Swiss Roll which makes the swirly pattern, and finally cut into the individual pieces that you can purchase. Their website lists the ingredients for all of their products and if you happen to be in store and wish to know ingredients used before purchasing, they are all available to read in the 'Lush Times' Another thing that I love about Lush is that none of their products are tested on animals. Good on them I say.
I've avoided Lush for several years after a very bad experience with one of the shampoos, but recently in my search for some lovely softening and soothing bath goodies I decided to give them another chance. I spent over £15 on 4 of their bath products and the first I picked up, after many recommendations, was this Comforter bubble bar. This costs £4.25 for a large 'bar' (even though it looks nothing like a bar of any sort) which Lush say is 'big enough for 2 baths'.
Of course as this is Lush there is no packaging to speak of, you just pick up the bar and stick it in a paper bag which the Lush assistant will seal with a sticker with the product info on when you pay. The bar is a pink and white uneven oval type shape with a swirl pattern to it, as you should be able to see from the picture above.It smells lovely and, aside from the fact that it is supposed to give 2 baths as opposed to the 1 of most of their other bath products, it was the smell that convinced me to actually buy it when I was in the shop. It's a lovely fresh blackcurrant type scent which is strong but definitely not overpowering, and I am someone who struggles a lot with strong scents!
To use the bar you are supposed to crumble it under a running hot tap, which sounds easy but it does tend to stick to my hands asI'm crumbling it so it's not always as easy as it sounds! Not too much hassle though. At this stage the scent starts to get a little stronger and as bubbles start to form the scent really fills the room. The bubbles it creates are really amazing and fill the bath so quickly. The water turns pink but the bubbles are pure white and it does look really lovely and relaxing.
Getting into the bath the bubbles feel lovely and silky on my skin and I do find it feels very comforting and relaxing. I tend to spend a lot of my time in the bath with this just rubbing the bubbles over my skin as they feel really silky and moisturising, whereas just lying in the bath I don't feel I'm getting the benefits of the bar's skin softening properties, as relaxing as it is.The bubbles last for as long as I am in the bath, but I have to say I'm not really one for long soaks and I tend to get bored quickly so it might not last for everyone else.
After getting out of the bath I feel very relaxed and my skin does feel nice and soft and kind of 'cocooned' in moisture which is lovely. I have been quite impressed with this and as I only use half a bar at a time it is better vale than most of Lush's bubble bars, however I think you could definitely get more than just 2 uses out of it without it losing it's effect.
All in all I would recommend this bubble bar, especially if you're a fan of fruity scents.
The Lush comforter is one of the products unlike any of their others, that I actually use on a regular basis. This is always available to buy in store and online. Unfortunately the price has risen, it used to be £3.99 but the price has kept rising and is now at £4.25 per bubble bar. This is quite expensive considering what it is however you can use this more than once. This can be found online at https://www.lush.co.uk/product/408/The-Comforter-Bubble-Bar. Personally I prefer to buy this instore because then I can get a bag and label with it so I can put it in my draw so it smells really nice but not get it's crumbs everywhere.
The Comforter is a bubble bar, which is basically a solid bubble bath. I have always loved the idea of this because it's better for the environment due to the lack of plastic packaging. It also means that it's compact so it doesn't take up a lot of room in the bathroom or where ever you like to store your bath bombs/bubble bars. I like the colours of this, it reminds me of ice cream or something sweet and delicious! Due to these being handmade each bar is unique, some more darker than others, what with me buying mine in store it gives me the opportunity to choose my own which means I can choose the prettiest one they have to offer.
The smell of this is Blackcurrants and cream. Lush says "This fruity bubble bar gives the feeling of being hugged by a jolly blackcurrant. When life is getting you down, crumble The Comforter under hot, running water for purple water and creamy bubbles. The warm aroma of cassis absolute is relaxing so relaxing that you'll go to bed feeling happier and the world will seem brighter the next day." Well it doesn't make me feel like I'm being hugged by fruit, but it does smell like blackcurrants which is nice.
Personally I break this up and I can get three uses out of this bar which is quite good because I wouldn't want to put it all in. Because this crumbles loads when snapping is another reason why I like to keep it in the packet because then I can catch them crumbs and not waste any of the product. I crumpled this up into my bath rather than putting a solid chunk into the water, this I found helped the bubbles to appear quicker and to help the full piece dissolve.
The water turns a really nice pink colour, I love it when the bath water starts to change, it's what helps it make lush products different from everyone elses. The bubbles get really big and frothy as soon as the product hits the water which means by the time the bath water is full it's also over flowing with bubbles which I love. Before even getting in the bath I could smell the blackcurrant scent rising with the steam.
Once in the bath the water felt really luxurious and loved the creamy bubbles, it was really easy to relax in this bath and was quite comforting after a long hard day and the smell didn't deteriorate either, it was still really strong despite being a third of the original size and in the water. Because I use bubble bath for relaxation and not to get clean in it means that I don't have to mix any soapy products which could make the bubbles disappear.
Overall, I love the fruity smell of this and I love that it stays strong all the time and the bubble bar itself is really long lasting, the bubbles in the bath can last up to an hour but considerably less when using other products in the bath too, but the water is still champagne pink which I love, i think the price is fair as It really helps to relax me and this is a product I choose to buy often and use it as my main bubble bath/bar.
I am a huge fan of Lush and have been using many of their products for almost a decade now! However I hadn't tried too many of their bubble bars simply because I tend to have showers rather than baths as I don't have the time for such luxuries! For Eid a couple of months ago I was given some Lush goodies by a family friend and one of the items I received was the Comforter bubble bar.
The first thing that you notice about this bubble bar is that it is huge. It's probably about the size of a standard bar of soap and much bigger than most other bubble bars in the Lush range. It's also a little more expensive coming in at £4.50 for a bar. The bar itself is what I would describe as very girly as it is made up of dark pink and white swirls. It reminds me of the strawberry and vanilla milkshakes that we used to mix when we went to McDonalds as children. In fact it does look good enough to eat! The smell of this is also unmistakeable. It smells very sweet and fruity, like the fizzy blackcurrant drink we used to have as children. Delicious!
I have been using this bubble bar over the last few weeks and have been breaking off small pieces to use in order to make this last longer. I think out of one bar I will be able to get out about 5 uses which is great! I like to use this after my zumba class on a Tuesday evening. I come back feeling really quite sore and my muscles are calling out for a nice long soak in the bath before bed. I run myself a warm bath and crumble a bit of this into the water near the tap so that it starts to dissolve and mix with the power of the water. The bubble bar crumbled easily but I found that rather than dissolving it just settled at the bottom of the tub and needed a bit of effort on my part to get it to dissolve. Not that this is a problem as I would have needed to work the water to generate the bubbles.
Talking of bubbles if you like your bath bubbly you'll love this. The bar doesn't hold back and you get loads and loads of foamy bubbles floating on pretty pink water. It looked really inviting! It also smells divine. Despite using just a small amount the scent of the sweet blackcurrant came through and made my bath smell beautiful.
I had a long soak for about 30 minutes and at the end of this there were still a load of bubbles still floating on the water which I found quite impressive. As I rinsed my skin under the shower I could feel how clean and soft this made my skin feel and I was pleased that the beautiful scent also lingered on my skin. The long bath was just what I needed to sort out my tired muscles but I am sure the scent also played a part in leaving me feeling wonderfully relaxed and ready for a good night's sleep.
I really love this bubble bar from Lush. The scent is amazing and quite relaxing. My skin is also left feeling soft and moisturised. It is an expensive treat but definitely worth having from time to time. Highly recommended!
I have been a huge fan of Lush for years now, and recently wanted to try something new, been way to obsessed with Sex Bomb! And I usually buy bath bombs, but when I saw The Comforter in my local Lush, I thought it looked and smelled amazing, but also is Lush's most popular product, so I'm hoping the other Lush fans have similar tastes to me! The Lush store assistant also mentioned that the product is preservative free, which can only be a bonus.
The Comforter is a 200g (roughly hand sized) in an oval shape. The product has an attractive colour scheme, white and a dark pink, with an eye-catching swirl pattern, which definitely would help sales of the product. The product is unpackaged, only in a paper bag to take home, which is a unique selling point. The product is also Vegan and the product wasn't tested on animals. Ingredients list is on the Lush website or on the printed sticker from the store.
The smell of The Comforter is really gorgeous, and now one of my favourite from Lush. It has a distinct smell of blackcurrant, and a general berry smell, which is a sweet smell, but not to overpowering. The berry scent is really unique, but very relaxing and calming, perfect for a stressing relieving bath.
To use the bubble bar, just crumble parts of it under the hot tap and it starts bubbling right away. I used about a quarter, maybe less, for my bath, and it gave me a bath full of bubbles and even turned my bath water pink! For best results use part way through running the bath. The scent of the product is released quickly, and fills the room with a relaxing scent of berries, which wasn't too overpowering either, just enough to be calming. The scent is quite appealing to most, and I would recommend for anyone. The Comforter also lasts throughout the bath, which is always a bonus!
The bubble bar is one of my favourite Lush products, it was calming and scent filled, but also the natural oils in the bubble bar were really good for the skin, making it feel soft and clean. Also the product should be suitable for all types of skin. Also the product lasts quite a while, especially if you use only abit per bath. Highly recommend!
The Comforter is available at all Lush Stores and Lush's website, and costs £4.15 per 200g.
I'm a huge fan of lush and I am enticed by a number of their products due to their unique and beautiful scents in each of them, I also have the comfort in knowing that all are cruelty free and almost all of their products are vegan, including the comforter.
I first viewed this item on-line at lush and wasn't sure about buying it as I wasn't aware of how big they actually were and wanted to be extra sure as I was going to be paying £4.15 for just one. Thankfully I got myself to a lush store and was amazed with what I saw - each piece was about the size of my hand/palm area which made it seem perfectly justifiable to pay that price, in fact i'm surprised it didn't actually cost more!
What proves to be more value for your money is that you don't have to use the whole thing in one go. You can in fact use one comforter three or four times generously providing you slice it up with a knife (it's easy to do so it doesn't even have to be a sharp one!) which will give you an entire bath smelling like a bottle of ribena and turning bright pink! Don't worry there's no staining involved, I can confirm that it won't stain white baths or your skin - so go crazy!
Of course as many bubble baths, salts and comforters go; it's always best to give yourself plenty of time to thoroughly enjoy your comforter. Sit back, relax and enjoy the bubbles, the colours and the gorgeous black currant aroma. The smell is just right as well, it isn't over powering to the point of giving you a headache, nor is it weak where you find yourself wondering where the smell has disappeared to!
According to the ingredients listed on lush's site the natural ingredients are as follows:
Cream of Tartar, Titanium Dioxide, Bergamot Oil, Cassis Absolute, Cypress Oil, *Limonene, *Linalool
and the synthetic ingredients are:
Colour 45410, Colour 17200, Sodium Bicarbonate, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Lauryl Betaine, Perfume, Cocamide DEA.
Lush's products are as natural as possible with minimum amounts of synthetic products but always remain cruelty free. There are no animal extracts used in the comforter and is 100% suitable for both vegans and vegetarians so you have piece of mind knowing you can indulge yourself without any guilt.
Lush also comments on the lack of packaging for the comforter and says:
"By using a solid bubble bath, you are eliminating the need for packaging on your product. Liquid products need preservatives, but solid products like this don't. Better for you and better for the environment; what a comforting thought!"
So again with all of lush's products they aim to use less packaging and when packaging is necessary - it is always recycled and re-used, so you're also helping the environment by purchasing these products in recycled containers.
Of course do remember to use the comforter bubble bar within a couple of weeks as it is made from fresh natural ingredients and does not have the shelf life of products you find from supermarkets that have preservatives in. This won't be a problem though as the comforter smells that good you'll want to use it every night like I have!
I fully advise you get to a lush store or on-line at lush and get a comforter or two, they're great value, smell gorgeous and leaves your skin feeling fab. Go on and Indulge yourself!
