BRIGHTSIDE BUBBLE BAR | REVIEW

Another review for you guys, and this time it’s Brightside bubble bar! I’ve noticed this product before but I’ve never really given it a second look. For a while I’ve been attracted to “wow” factor baths, with pretty bath art and glitter. I’ve stuck mainly to bath bombs I know and love, but this time I thought I’d branch out. It seemed like a good investment, as must people seem to say that it can last for up to 4 baths. As a very economical lushie, this made my heart sing! I’m always very disappointed when a bubble bar can barely manage 2 baths.

Let’s talk about the smell first, which I feel is the highlight of this bubble bar. It’s very uplifting and refreshing, with Tangerine oil (top contender for one of my favourite scented oils), Sicilian Mandarin oil and Bergamot oil. Obviously, it’s super citrusy, so if you’re not really into that, this isn’t a subtle scent at all! I enjoyed it in my evening bath, but I can imagine the refreshing scent to be a good wake up call in the morning (PLEASE come out with a shower gel Lush)!

The appearance of the bubble bar is what you’d expect of a product named “Brightside”. The orange, red and yellow swirls remind me a of sunrise/sunset. It is quite a chunky bubble bar and I had to use a knife to cut it into quarters. It produces tonnes and tonnes of bubbles, so I feel if you were feeling frugal you could stretch it to maybe 5 or 6 baths (depending on how bubbly you like your baths). It turns the water a bright orange colour, with no glitter or lustre (perfect for hotel baths!).

Overall, great bubble bar and I’d definitely recommend it! It’s got great value for money at £4.95 (which is good if you consider it can comfortably do 4 baths – that’s only £1.25 a bath!) and the scent is to die for! (If you like orange Fanta, you’ll LOVE this!)

I’m really, really hoping Lush expands the Brightside family, I’d love a shower gel/jelly and maybe a scrub?

Creamy Candy bubble bar

One of my holy grail Lush products! Repurchase it whenever I’m in Lush! This smells exactly like the Rockstar soap. It has a very strong, sweet smell, so if you’re not into that, maybe not for you! Otherwise, give it a go!

This product is cheaper than a lot of other bubble bars and is slightly smaller, but makes just as many bubbles. It turns your bath water a pastel pink colour (with no staining). The smell really lingers on your skin for hours after your bath. Lush need to make a perfume with this scent. Absolutely gorgeous.

Although this is a small bubble bar, you can still reuse it just like the other bubble bars available at Lush. I usually break this in half or use it whole. Your bath water will still look and smell amazing if you only use half!

RRP: £2.95

Don’t think they offer samples of these, but why not ask and see? If not, ask for a demo in store!

Ultraviolet bubble bar

Bought this bubble bar based on the fact that it has the same scent as Daddy-o shampoo (one of my favourite lush scents). It smells wonderful and leaves the scent on your skin and hair after your bath. The scent is a little unusual, so if you were to purchase one of these, pop into store to have a sniff first. I personally think the smell is a combination of daddy-o shampoo and freshly cut grass (no, not a new lush product!)

Great value for money. I chose to cut this bubble bar into 3 chunks, to get 3 baths from it. Even with a small chunk, it produces loads of bubbles and turns your bath water a deep purple-blue colour.

Sadly this product was only available for a limited time! Hopefully they’ll bring it out again next year- I’ll be waiting.

RRP: £4.75

Not sure on samples of bubble bars, but why not ask just in case?
