The Cyclops Bubble Bar is a brand-new, limited-edition product from Lush’s 2022 Halloween line.
Living up to its name it of course has just one eye; This and its peculiar cone-shape make it a stand-out Halloween product that fits perfectly into Lush’s weird yet wonderful Halloween line!
The Cyclops bubble bar is approximately 100g, for comparison purposes the bestselling The Comforter bubble bar is 200g – twice its size. Yes, the Cyclops bubble bar may be on the smaller side, BUT if I’ve learnt anything from the hundreds of Lush products that I have tried, size doesn’t dictate the products quality.
The Cyclops bubble bar contains the following essential oils: buchu, litsea cubeba and sweet wild orange. Its scent is fairly new to Lush and is described as a ‘passion fruit’ fragrance.
It is delicious, one sniff leaves me craving a tropical cocktail.
The fruitiness of it really lifts my mood and helps me relax – holiday mode activated! It is quite a powerful fragrance in comparison to the more gentle scent of Bubble Lugosi (this years other new Halloween bubble bar) but it’s a good powerful, I always struggle to describe scents but Cyclops literally makes my mouth water.
To use the Cyclops bubble bar, I put broken up pieces of it and its single candy eye, into a sieve and let the running bath-water trickle over it. I find this the most effective way to use single use bubble bars. This method is also the best way to ensure none of the bubble bar gets accidentally wasted and through trial and error, I have found that this method makes the most bubbles.
One of my favourite things about Lush’s bubble bars is that unlike their bath bombs, bubble bars can be spread out over several baths. I got 2 adequately bubbled bubble baths out of just the one Cyclops bubble bar, using less didn’t hinder the quality of it at all. Thinking back I could have easily spread it out over 3 baths. It may be a small bubble bar but a little amount of it goes a very long way.
It doesn’t take long for the blanket of fluffy white bubble to form once you run Cyclops under the tap. Underneath the blanket of fluffy, white bubbles the water turns a bright and super vibrant pink.
A Cyclops bubble bath leaves your skin feeling like silk. Its captivatingly-fruity-scent also lasts on your skin for the rest of the day once you’ve got out of the bath.
Overall, I am so pleased that Lush released the Cyclops bubble bar, I’d go as far as to say it’s one of my favourites of the new bubble bars from this year.
I can see this bubble bar selling very well and I’d love to see the same scent carried out in other product formats in the not-so-distant future. Hint, hint Lush; I’d be over the moon with a bath bomb or shower gel equivalent!
