The Bubbling Under Bubble Bar is one of my personal favourites, I like it because it is one of very few Lush products that really, really help me with managing the symptoms of my medical conditions, chronic pain and fatigue. Nearly all of Lush’s bath bombs and bubble bars help me to some extent, the hot bath water is great for loosening up tense muscles ETC however, when you combine hot bath water with products that share similar ingredients to the Bubbling Under bubble bar you’ve hit gold.
Bubbling Under is the bubble bar equivalent of the Big Blue bath bomb. The very visible seaweed may put off some, after all it put me off of the bath bomb back when I very first became a Lushie. Once I however used it I had no regrets and just like that I was eager to get my hands on anything else from the ‘Big Blue’ range.
Just one bar of Bubbling Under can be spread out and used over 2 to 3 baths, each having a more than generous amount of bubbles. Paired up with the Big Blue bath bomb there is no other bath combination quite like it. Apart from the obvious ingredients that make the Bubbling Under and Big Blue two different types of product, their ingredients are pretty much the same.
I personally break up my bubble bars then place the pieces into a sieve, holding it under the hot tap. Other people crumble their bubble bars under the tap with just their hands, I choose to however use a sieve as unfortunately I don’t have a dual tap, it’s either the hot tap or the cold tap for me, using a sieve stops me from freezing/burning my hands off!
Another benefit of using the Bubbling Under bubble bar with a sieve is that it has a similar effect as the stocking trick, (discussed in my Big Blue bath bomb review.) All of the seaweed stays in the sieve meaning no loose seaweed. With the hot water still running over it, the seaweed still softens and you still get the benefits of the seaweed’s soothing properties in the bath water.
The sea salt in Bubbling Under is also very beneficial, it is rich in sodium, magnesium, and other minerals, all of which are great for your skin. There is something that is just so relaxing about hot water and sea salt. I find that sinking myself into a Bubbling Under bubble bath is one of the most relaxing things I can do quickly and easily.
Visually I am also really impressed with how Bubbling Under looks in the tub, it turns the water such an amazing shade of blue, it reminds me of tropical blue seas. Closing your eyes, laying back in the tub and just breathing in Bubbling Under’s scent takes my mind to the beach, with the beach being one of my most favourite places to be (apart from Lush Oxford Street) I can’t help but be completely in love with this product. If it’s ever in the Lush Kitchen I totally recommend you grab one!
