Lush The Comforter Bubble Bar
Advantages: Creates lots of bubbles, can get a lot of baths out of this, smells gorgeous.
I first bought this comforter bubble bar from Lush after using their 'candy cane' bubble bar over a year ago and I loved it. I bought the candy cane bubble bar from their Christmas range and was disappointed that they were no longer selling it throughout the rest of the year, but I was advised by a member of staff to try this one as an alternative. It doesn't smell the same as the candy cane, in fact quite different, the only similarities was the pinkness of the bath and the soft fluffy bubbles. The employee in Lush did point out though that it doesn't smell the same as the candy cane one but it was her personal favourite and if I liked the smell of the bar in the shop then she was certain I would like it when I use it in the bath.
The bubble bar is noticeably very big in size compared to some of the other bubble bars on sale in Lush. I snapped mine up and got four uses out of mine and so whilst it may cost slightly more than the other bubble bars at £4.15 for 200g, you do get more baths out of it as a result. It is OK to snap these bubble bars up and they actually advise you to do this, otherwise you will just be wasting it if you only use it once. After snapping mine up into four pieces I think this was still more than enough, as my bath was filled with lots of bubbles and the bath water still turned very pink. The first time I ever used a lush bubble bar I didn't know or think about snapping it up, and used it all in one bath, I did get lots of bubbles out of it but it is a waste of money considering how much the bars cost.
The comforter bubble bar is berry scented, and I love it. I usually go for the candy or orangey scented products, but ever since I have started using Lush products I keep discovering more scents that I love but what I wouldn't usually have considered buying or trying, and instead sticking to what I like best.
To use the bubble bar, after snapping a bit off, slowly crumble it under the hot running tap. It will immediately turn the water slightly pink and the smell hit me straight away. I then left my bath to run, and could smell the berries all the way from my bedroom! The next time I checked on the bath there was mountains of bubbles, and so if you like only a small amount of bubbles then you might want to consider using even smaller bits of the bar than I did, just I like lots!
The bubbles are very fluffy and feel really soft. This also rubs off onto your skin and after getting out the bath it left my skin feeling very soft too, as well as smelling nice. The bubbles also don't budge easily, like some other bubble baths can do. There was still plenty of bubbles when I got out the bath almost an hour later... I never want to get out!
I love the comforter bubble bar and have since used it again as I received it in my Think Pink gift box from Lush, that I received for my Birthday last year. I will certainly purchase this again as it is my personal favourite bubble bar from Lush. I have used several other bubble bars and whilst I do like them, I think the comforter is the best at making your skin smell gorgeous for a while after getting out of the bath, and also creates a lot of bubbles.
This is quite a girly product from Lush but there is a 'blue skies and fluffy white clouds' bubble bar available too which is the same size and price, but just smells different and is blue instead of pink, so a one for the boys. I have received one of these in a gift set that I received at Valentine's Day and so will be reviewing that one too sometime soon.
At times when you feel you need to protect yourself from the world - immerse yourself in this pink bath and allow the familiar oils to envelop you in a comforting berry scented embrace.
We wanted this bar to give maximum comfort, so we've made it twice as big as the other bubble bars, to give you lots of nurturing baths.
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!
Summary: My favourite product from Lush!
