My first trip into a Lush store was an eye-opening, unforgettable and fun experience. I had a good look around it and I remember being completely overwhelmed with excitement as I explored the huge amount of products on offer. There were bath bombs, shower jellies, soaps… The bubble bars were however what interested me the most. I liked the idea that it was a product that could be spread out over several baths as opposed to just the one.As beautiful as everything was I decided that the bubble bars would be a good place to start my Lush journey. On that very first Lush trip I decided to purchase a The Comforter Bubble Bar. At the time I wasn’t entirely sure what to make of it. All I knew is that it was one of the biggest bubble bars available at that time and that it smelt of blackcurrants, reminding me of one of my favourite childhood drinks, Ribena.
Being the first product I got from Lush, the Comforter bubble bar will always be a product I think highly of. I really don’t know what I’d be doing with my life if I hadn’t have found Lush, I feel as if I have to thank the bubble bar as without it who knows what hobby I would have right now?!As mentioned above, The Comforter is one of the bigger bubble bars that are currently available to purchase from Lush. Above is a picture of the 3 larger sized bubble bars they stock. Going clockwise from the top there is The Comforter, Brightside and then Blue Skies and Fluffy White Clouds.
Below is a photograph of the Comforter and Pop in the Bath bubble bar together. I have included it in my review to show the significant size difference.Many people break their bubble bars in half, I however like to make the most of them by separating them into several pieces. With the Comforter bubble bar I can easily get 6 to 8 generously bubbled baths out of it. The Pop in the Bath is a different story, I can only stretch it out to last for 2 baths. By all means I love both, the Comforter being a giant in comparison to other bubble bars is however what makes it more desirable to me.
The above photo shows how I use my bubble bars. I put the broken up pieces of The Comforter into a small sieve and let it run under the baths hot tap.
A lot of people however do not use a sieve, they just hold pieces of the bubble bar, under the tap in their hand, slowly and gently mushing it up. I find both ways of doing it show no different results, the only reason I use a sieve is because we have 2 separate bath taps. 1 is boiling hot and the 2nd ice cold therefore I let the sieve get burnt rather than my hand.
The smallest chunk of The Comforter bubble bar gives off copious amounts of fluffy white bubbles, the amount shown in the above picture is me over indulging. You honestly don’t need very much in there at all to have a perfectly bubbled, blackcurrant scented bath. The best thing about being able to split bubble bars is that if you did decide to add a few more bubbles it’s easy-peasy to just grab another chunk.
Once you sink into a Comforter bubble bath it feels as if you are coated in a soft, fluffy blanket of fruity goodness.
It’s hydrating and softens the rough patches on my skin and really does leave me relaxed. Its scent also lingers on your skin hours after getting out of the bath which always leaves me craving another very, very soon!
