Over the past 12 months my love for the Comforter scent has grown at a ridiculously rapid rate, the bubble bar was actually my very first Lush product. I of course couldn’t get enough of it, it alongside the Twilight bath bomb was what first got me hooked on Lush.
When Lush Oxford Street opened their doors presenting London with the Comforter shower cream I couldn’t wait to get my hands on a bottle. Once I got it home it however smelt completely different from the bubble bar, I didn’t like it at all, for me the blackcurrant scent was far too rich, it actually reminded me of the salty drink they make you drink after having a stomach bug. Without giving it a proper chance I gave my one bottle of The Comforter shower cream straight to my friend and from that day apart from the bubble bar, I went on in the Lush world ignoring all Comforter scented products.
It wasn’t until the Lush Kitchen released a Comforter scented shower jelly in 2016 that I decided to give the scent another try. I had been invited to attend the Lush Showcase as press and it was there in the Lush Kitchen pop-up-shop that I fell in love with the shower jelly. I am so glad I gave it another chance as it has become one of my all time favourite Lush scents, I even love the shower cream now!
My new found love of the Comforter scent had unfortunately started to blossom far too late in the chronology of the Lush world. I’d missed the Comforter solid perfume, body conditioner and body lotion in the Lush Kitchen, all I could do was cross my fingers and hope that something that was Comforter scented (and new to me) would appear on the Lush Kitchen menu…
A few weeks ago I got very lucky and found a The Comforter Solid Perfume on ebay, it was actually cheaper than if I had ordered it straight from the Lush Kitchen, it was basically brand new to look at too. I am still very pleased with myself. The seller hadn’t even taken off the lid so it was as fresh as a daisy. When it arrived in the post in such perfect condition, I squealed with delight!
The Comforter solid perfumes consistency visually resembles Vaseline, it however isn’t as soft and easily manipulated to the touch as Vaseline is. I’d describe it as more like cooled, solid candle wax. The warmth of your finger heats up just enough of the product to put on your wrists and neck. It is the perfect consistency as it stops you from using too much by accident, a little of the perfume goes a very long way.
I have put my The Comforter solid perfume on every day since I got it and it doesn’t appear to be getting noticeably smaller on use, in fact it is showing no signs of usage at all. The product in the tin still looks just as full as when it was new, the only noticeable difference I can actually see is the unavoidable fingerprints left on its surface by my index finger from when I am applying it of a morning…
Out of all of the Lush solid perfumes that I have tried I’d say that The Comforter is one of the best. Not just because I can never get enough of the scent but because when you put it on it stays on. So many perfumes rarely stay on all day, I am therefore over the moon to know that a dab of the Comforter solid perfume WILL last on me all day, it even stays on me when I’ve been in the swimming pool doing my physio exercises!
The one and only negative thing I can say about this perfume is in regards to how it is packaged. Getting the product out of the small tin is annoyingly difficult with my long nails. I think all of the solid perfumes would work much better in a tube package like the ones used for Lush’s The Kiss lip gloss, doing this would make the product so much more practical when it comes down to application.
