The Blue Skies and Fluffy White Clouds Bubble Bar is yet another HUGE one! It shares the same shape, size and design as the Brightside and the The Comforter bubble bar which makes me very, very happy. Everyone loves a bargain after all…
It was of course the Comforter bubble bar that first got me into a Lush store, I had no idea how to even use bubble bars back then. Just thinking of my first trip in to a Lush store gives me butterflies, I can remember how excited I was and how adamant I was to find a product that could be spread over several baths instead of just the one (i.e not a bath bomb) it was that day that I stumbled across Lush bubble bars.
The Comforter bubble bar was a huge success for me, it left me wanting to try all of the other bubble bars Lush have, after just one bath I was hooked. The Blue Skies and Fluffy White Clouds bubble bar (which I am now going to name Blue Skies for the rest of this review otherwise we’re going to be here for a very long time 😂) wasn’t a scent I was immediately drawn to. At first I always went for the fruity products, curiosity however got the better of me and I picked up a Blue Skies so that I could try it at home.
Just like the Brightside bubble bar, the smallest amount of Blue Skies goes a long way. I can easily get 6 generously bubbled bubble baths out of just the one bar. Often I break it up into 10 or 12 pieces before placing it all in a jar in my bathroom. I have several jars displayed with all different bubble bars in them, my husband calls it Lulu’s Bubble Bar, Bar… 😆
I like to break my bubble bars into lots of pieces so that I can easily mix products together. It is also a lot easier to add more of a product if you feel the bath needs it than it is to take it back out, I feel storing it like this makes me less wasteful.
Blue Skies bubble bar is described as having a scent that is, ‘an exotic, hypnotic fragrance that helps you relax.’ The patchouli and frankincense are probably the most noticeable of its ingredients to me. Patchouli and I don’t always get on as unfortunately in some products that contain it such as The Lord of Misrule bath bomb, it can trigger my migraines. I am however okay with Blue Skies, I think maybe the frankincense and cinnamon oil in it saves it for me.
Blue Skies has a very musky, spicy almost peppery scent, I wish I could detect more cinnamon in it, I think I’d use it more often if the cinnamon in it was stronger. As said above, the smallest amount of Blue Skies makes copious amounts of soft and white fluffy bubbles. It’s not until you’re sat in a Blue Skies bath that you realise why it is named Blue Skies and Fluffy White Clouds.
Its scent although not one I’d normally go for to help me relax does do a great job of helping me clear my head and feel calm. I love the deep blue that it turns the water too, it really is reminiscent of a beautiful Summers day.
Blue skies isn’t my favourite of the BIG bubble bars, that crown still belongs to The Comforter for now, I do however recommend Blue Skies if you’re looking for something a little different. Throughout my use of Lush I feel my sense of smell has matured somewhat. Blue Skies was a product I had to use a few times before I really started to appreciate it, I am glad I gave it a chance as it’s a much loved product to me now.
