Lou's Reviews - Lush The Comforter Bubble Bar

Aloha Bloggerinos,

Thank you for all your psychic energy, I found my charger.......in a suitcase. Smooth move Louise, smooooth move!

Anyway, this allowed me to get snapping all the delights of my Lush gift set and I shall review them as I use them.

The gift box came beautifully packaged and with a great big pink bow, which is always a winner in my eyes. It contains eleven classic products, all kind of from the same 'scent family' if that makes any sense to you.

I cannae wait to try all of these but shan't rush, you must savour such treasure!

The first product that I sampled the joys of was The Comforter Bubble Bar. Individually this retails for £3.95 which seems pretty steep but you do get 200g of product, twice as much as the average bubble bar dontchya know!

The Comforter Bubble Bar claims to wrap you in purple waters and blackcurranty goodness like a real 'comforter' or scarf. I used this on a night when my morning sickness (which comes in the evenings) was really bad and I was just feeling really down about the whole thing. I ran a medium-hot bath (can you have hot baths when you have a bun dans le oven? I wasn't sure and google wasn't to hand) and broke off a reasonable sized chunk.

I was really pleased with the water colour, more cerise than purple and it created a good amount of bubbles, more than my top ranking bubble bar, Flosty Gritter. The smell was really enjoyable and not over powering. I was a bit apprehensive about the smell because I associate blackcurrants with Ribena, which I despise, but thankfully, there wasn't a whiff of Ribena to be..whiffed. Eloquent.

I stayed in the bath for a nice long while and the bubbles didn't fizzle away. I can't say I felt any particular difference in my skin condition afterwards but I did feel comforted and relaxed and that's all I needed that night.

Have you tried this product? What did you think?




  1. I got the comforter solid perfume and was gutted! it stinks of dolly mixture sweets which i hate and gives me a sore head boooo! I smelled this bar in Lush and couldn't decide if it was actually the same smell xxx

  2. I tried the bar and absolutely loved it - have to agree that it doesn't make any difference to the skin but it's smells scummy and made my bath seriously relaxing (all in my head I'm sure but still awesome all the same)

  3. Congrats on your pregnancy! I hope the morning (night) sickness isn't too bad on you!

  4. That looks AMAZING!

    PS. That stuff looks good enough to eat!!! A sort of pink version of Arctic Roll! (Ice cream dessert, for those who wonder what it is)

  8. I'll be adding this to my shopping this now!! I love Lush the products are so good and the store always smells amazing haha!!

    Love J.

  9. I took boiling hot baths when I was preggers with both of my sweet little buttercups, and they are extra awesome! All this morning sickness. I swear youre going to have a girl. My little girl was 8 1/2 months of misery. I tore my esophagus puking so much. My son... nothing. It was lovely!

  10. Cute packaging!
    I nominated you for an award over on my blog : http://www.glamorousgirl2014.blogspot.com/

  12. I like using the comforter bubble bar and it's one my favorites.
