Lush - The Comforter Bubble Bar Review

A few weeks ago, I received a box full of complimentary goodies from Lush and I put up an unboxing post. It was very brief and I promised I would review each item after I have tried them.

So far, I have only tested out two items and I will blog about one of them tomorrow. The product I want to quickly talk about today is The Comforter Bubble Bar

Here are the facts:
☮ It contains 7 natural ingredients and 6 safe synthetics
☮ None of the ingredients have been tested on animals
☮ It's vegan
☮ To use, break off a piece and crumble in your hand under hot water
☮ 1 bar costs £4.50

My experience?

Unfortunately, I jumped into using it and didn't take a photo beforehand. Sorry!

Well, the first thing I noticed about this product was the smell. It has a sweet blackcurrant scent but it definitely isn't too overpowering. As you can see from the image above, I used about a third of it for my bath. Lush recommend you use half of it but I honestly think that a third is enough. 
See for yourself (please ignore the grimy tiles and bath handles - it is my bf's uni house. We cleaned it, promise!):

The bath water turned a lovely rosy pink and it smelt so dreamy. My muscles and limbs felt brand new afterwards!

I'm not a bath person. I usually feel as though my lungs are closing up and I'm soaking in my own dirt. But I thoroughly enjoyed this particular bath. In fact, I bought a bottle of Radox bubble bath shortly afterwards! Well done, Lush. 

The best part? My skin didn't react at all to this product. Though, I am currently recovering from an all-over face rash after using a Clarins moisturiser twice... Nightmare.

The one thing I have to moan about is the cost. £4.50 for three baths (or two baths if you follow the recommendations)? No, thank you. I'm a student and I cannot afford that. It would make a nice little gift for someone at Christmas or on their birthday but unless I was a member of the Made In Chelsea cast, I could not justify spending £1.50 each time I wanted to bathe.

I wouldn't go as far as to say I love this product but I did really enjoy using it. I still have one bath's worth of bubbles left which I'm saving for after my uni deadline day. Out of 10, I'd probably rate this a 5. The cost really ruined it for me and because of this reason, and this reason alone, I will not be buying it in the future. However, I would recommend trying it at least once. Perfect for a pamper evening!

Thank you, Lush!
