I know there are a lot of Lush fans on here, but being nearly 30 I find myself being relatively new to this whole bath bomb thing! I've always chosen to ignore them really, and often walked past the Lush shop practically gipping from the over powering smell - sorry for that nice bit of information! However, just recently I walked past the Lush shop in Leeds and rather than feeling rather nauseous, the smell actually made me want to go in and take a look around. I was rather bemused at first. How many bath bombs and bars of soap can one shop sell? Well if you are Lush, then loads actually! I was soon quite obviously identified as a 'newbie' and accosted by an overly smiley member of staff, who told me I would probably be best off starting with a bubble bar rather than a bath bomb. I decided on the comforter as I liked the look of it and the smell. It was priced at £4.15 per 200g. I had no idea of the difference but once home was eager to see what this whole thing was about.
When I got home and ran the bath I was unsure how much to add so settled on about 1/4 of the bar and thought I'd soon know when it either hadn't done anything or I had a bathroom full of bubbles. Luckily it seemed I'd chosen just the right amount and after breaking it up in the bath my bath had soon turned pink (much to the delight of my two girls!), had a good amount of bubbles and had filled my bathroom with the most beautiful smell.
The smell reminded me of summer with a sweet berry smell. Once I immersed myself in the bath, I could feel the oils on my skin, making it silky soft, however it did also make my large bath rather slippery and I kept sliding all over! I must say as cliché as it sounds, it was very comforting - obviously why Lush decided to call it the comforter!!!
One thing I have always liked about Lush, even if before now I have never tried the products, is the company ethos. I like the use of natural ingredients and lack of packaging. The obvious alternative to this bubble bar is a bottle of bubble bath, which no matter how many natural ingredients it has in, still has packaging. Also the bubble bars have no preservatives in and so are better for you and the environment.
I also like how lovely this product looks and I have it at the side of my bath all the time. Even when it's not in the bath being used it gives off a subtle scent and looks cute at the side of the bath. The bar is bright pink with white spiral swirls in the centre. Lush also sell a blue bar called blue skies and fluffy white clouds and I will be buying this on my next trip to Leeds!
I have found that since I first used the bar I have mastered the use of bubble bars! I didn't realise there was an art! Now, rather than just plonking a section of the bar into the water, I break it up by rubbing it between my fingers under running water and then swish the bath water to create more bubbles. When I get out of a bath that has been filled with this bubble bar my skins always feels so lovely.
