Those of you with sensitive skin probably look at those Lush bath-bomb posts in your Bloglovin feed and long to be able to use such beautifully fragranced balls of exciting bubbles but know that they wont do any favours for your skin. I’ve had this problem for quite some time but I’ve finally found a way around this bath bomb envy – bubble bars! Lush sent be a bubble bar from the Easter collection to try and I was delighted to find that I didn’t have any reactions to it.
The best thing about bubble bars is that you can soak them under the tap or break off as much or as little as you want into your bath – this is good for doing a skin test and adding the best amount to suit your skin. I used a hunk of this as soon as I got back from my 47 mile charity walk. Dipping it straight into the bath seemed to work just as well has holding it under the tap. I let it break away and bubble up ’till the fruity smell filled the room and then relaxed amongst the bubbles for a while. I’m very good at having long baths, I was probably in there for about 10 minutes, if that, but didn’t have any bad reactions to the bubble bar. The bath didn’t seem to go crazy with bubbles but that could be because of the amount I put into my bath.
The Carrot wont be available till next Easter but you will find many other bubble bars on the Lush website.
What do you think of the Lush bubble bars?
