The Bubble Lugosi Bubble Bar is a brand-new, limited-edition product from Lush’s 2022 Halloween line. Designed to look just like a vampire, this glow-in-the-dark bubble bar was one of the first of this year’s Halloween products to catch my attention.
You may recognise the Bubble Lugosi bubble bars scent as it also features in one of Lush’s all-year-round products the Blackberry bath bomb. Bubble Lugosi is also not the first Halloween bubble bar to share its scent with the Blackberry bath bomb as it can also be found in the now-retired, Bewitched bubble bar from past Halloween lines.
The Bubble Lugosi bubble bar is approximately 100g so small in comparison to other bubble bars in its price range such as The Comforter – The Comforter is twice its size and the same price.
The Bubble Lugosi bubble bar contains bergamot and olibanum oils, a combination that has to be one of the most relaxing blends Lush have ever come up with. Anything with this bubble bars scent is a hit in my house. It’s fruity yet warm, to me, it is completely irresistible!
It brightens your mood while lulling you into a more relaxed state of mind, I find it particularly effective before bed, using it always helps me drift off to sleep much quicker. If you favour the products with a less-complicated scent, then Bubble Lugosi would be a great choice for you to try out.
As mentioned above, Bubble Lugosi glows in the dark – See above photo. While this doesn’t really make much difference in use; The bubbles glow very faintly but not enough for me to really notice it (this may differ depending on where your bathtub and bathroom lighting is) it does make bath time a little more interesting.
To use the Bubble Lugosi bubble bar, I put broken up pieces of it 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 bath bombs, bubble bars can be spread out over several baths. You could get at least 3 adequately bubbled bubble baths out of just the one Bubble Lugosi bubble bar without it hindering the quality of it at all, making it good value for money.
It doesn’t take long for the blanket of fluffy white bubbles to form. Underneath the blanket of fluffy, white bubbles the water turns a blue-like-purple, the photo above does the colour of the water no justice at all.
A Bubble Lugosi bubble bath leaves your skin silky-smooth and well nourished. Its scent lasts on your skin for several hours after getting out of the bath too.
Overall, I am glad Lush released this. At first I wondered what the point was considering we’d already had a bubble bar with the same fragrance in past Halloween lines BUT it was actually really fun revisiting the scent in a slightly different way. I can see this bubble bar selling very well, especially with it being glow-in-the-dark!
