The Comforter Shower Cream from Lush

The Comforter Shower Cream shares its scent with the much loved, The Comforter bubble bar. When I first got into Lush I had no idea that Lush Cosmetics made their own unique scents, I didn’t even know that the most popular scents were used in several different product formats. This was the case until I one day see that the Twilight bath bomb had a shower gel equivalent. Once I learnt about Lush’s scent families my need to try everything grew out of control, hence this blog!

Much like the Yuzu and Cocoa shower cream, The Comforter is a gloriously thick and velvety formula. I hope that Lush decide to expand their collection of shower creams in the foreseeable future as the creams feel so much more luxurious on the skin in comparison to the shower gels. Not that I dislike Lush’s shower gels, the creams are just in my opinion that little bit more of a treat.

Just like the Bubble Bar of the same name, The Comforter shower cream is a vibrant, hot-pink colour. At first I wasn’t that sold on the shower cream’s scent. I thought it was a lot stronger than the bubble bar equivalent and I actually gave my first barely used bottle to my friend before I’d even given it a proper chance.

I love to join in on all of the Lush discussions on Instagram or Facebook and one day The Comforter shower cream was the topic of conversation. I mentioned that I adored the bubble bar but couldn’t get as excited about it when it came down to the shower cream because of how strong its scent was. A fellow Lushie told me to try it again, keeping in mind how lovely it will make my skin smell once I was out of the shower.

I therefore tried it again promising myself that I would give it more of a chance this  time, the scent was still stronger than the bubble bar but I realised it wasn’t an offensive strong. Once the shower cream was mixed in with the hot shower water I actually see (or should I say smelt) the shower cream in a whole new light.

Just like the Yuzu and Cocoa shower cream, The Comforter’s scent remains on your skin all day, it’s a very gentle scent on your skin and one that I have grown to love. The Comforter has as the name suggests a very comforting scent, packed with cassis absolute and blackberry infusion it’s BERRY nice. (Sorry, I couldn’t resist…)

The cassis and blackberry ingredients alongside the vanilla and bergamot is what makes the scent of this shower cream so very inviting. Washing with it really is like being wrapped up in a warm and snuggly hug. The Comforter shower cream also contains almond oil which is a bonus if your skin is in need of some extra hydration. The shower creams are always my go to when my skin needs a little bit of extra TLC.

Another thing I feel is worth mentioning before I finish this review is that a little of the product goes a very long way, (if you’re not as gluttonous with it as my husband is anyway.)

The Comforter shower cream lasts well beyond its shelf life too, after 6 months plus it will need a bit of a shake in between uses because the ingredients in it will naturally begin to separate but after a quick shake, it goes back to it being as good as new.

I am so glad that I was convinced to try this product out again as I really like it now. I am always looking for new Comforter scented products to add to my ever growing collection. I hope they bring back the solid perfume again soon as I bitterly regret not picking one of them up when they were available.

The Comforter Bubble Bar from Lush

My first trip into a Lush store was an eye-opening, unforgettable and fun experience. I had a good look around it and I remember being completely overwhelmed with excitement as I explored the huge amount of products on offer. There were bath bombs, shower jellies, soaps… The bubble bars were however what interested me the most. I liked the idea that it was a product that could be spread out over several baths as opposed to just the one.The Comforter Bubble Bar.pngAs beautiful as everything was I decided that the bubble bars would be a good place to start my Lush journey. On that very first Lush trip I decided to purchase a The Comforter Bubble Bar. At the time I wasn’t entirely sure what to make of it. All I knew is that it was one of the biggest bubble bars available at that time and that it smelt of blackcurrants, reminding me of one of my favourite childhood drinks, Ribena.

Being the first product I got from Lush, the Comforter bubble bar will always be a product I think highly of. I really don’t know what I’d be doing with my life if I hadn’t have found Lush, I feel as if I have to thank the bubble bar as without it who knows what hobby I would have right now?!untitled-1As mentioned above, The Comforter is one of the bigger bubble bars that are currently available to purchase from Lush. Above is a picture of the 3 larger sized bubble bars they stock. Going clockwise from the top there is The Comforter, Brightside and then Blue Skies and Fluffy White Clouds.

Below is a photograph of the Comforter and Pop in the Bath bubble bar together. I have included it in my review to show the significant size difference.13439180_1807553766140510_563932264857925577_nMany people break their bubble bars in half, I however like to make the most of them by separating them into several pieces. With the Comforter bubble bar I can easily get 6 to 8 generously bubbled baths out of it. The Pop in the Bath is a different story, I can only stretch it out to last for 2 baths. By all means I love both, the Comforter being a giant in comparison to other bubble bars is however what makes it more desirable to me.

The above photo shows how I use my bubble bars. I put the broken up pieces of The Comforter into a small sieve and let it run under the baths hot tap.

A lot of people however do not use a sieve, they just hold pieces of the bubble bar, under the tap in their hand, slowly and gently mushing it up. I find both ways of doing it show no different results, the only reason I use a sieve is because we have 2 separate bath taps. 1 is boiling hot and the 2nd ice cold therefore I let the sieve get burnt rather than my hand.

The smallest chunk of The Comforter bubble bar gives off copious amounts of fluffy white bubbles, the amount shown in the above picture is me over indulging. You honestly don’t need very much in there at all to have a perfectly bubbled, blackcurrant scented bath. The best thing about being able to split bubble bars is that if you did decide to add a few more bubbles it’s easy-peasy to just grab another chunk.

Once you sink into a Comforter bubble bath it feels as if you are coated in a soft, fluffy blanket of fruity goodness.

It’s hydrating and softens the rough patches on my skin and really does leave me relaxed. Its scent also lingers on your skin hours after getting out of the bath which always leaves me craving another very, very soon!
