• LUSH Dorothy bubble bar // demo and review •

Many people who buy LUSH bubble bars don't know the simplest yet most effective way to use them. I thought I'd write this short post to tell you how to get the most out of your bubble bar.
I will be using LUSH Dorothy Bubble Bar for this post, but this method can be applied to any of the LUSH bubble bars. Enjoy!

LUSH Dorothy Bubble Bar is currently £3.25 from LUSH. Click here to be directed to the site.
It looks a little something like this...
(Somewheeeere over the rainbow, and all that jazz)

Demo:
1. Grab your bubble bar and crumble it in your bath. I usually break off a small chunk of it. 




2. Turn on your shower and run your shower head over the chunks of your bubble bar.
(Your bath will start to look a little something like this...)
3. Put your shower head away and turn on your taps.
The bubbles will get bigger...
And bigger!

I hope this demo was helpful. I know that when I first purchased a LUSH bubble bar I had no idea how to use it and always wasted loads of it. This way, you can control how much you use, and as you can see, I got mountains and mountains of bubbles and only use a small amount of the bubble bar. This means you get multiple uses from it - £3.25 isn't looking too bad now, is it?
Now onto the review...

Review:
Dorothy is described as intensely floral (completely agree with this) and sensual and sweet (don't quite agree with this). The scent is not sweet in my eyes - anyone who has tried LUSH Snow Fairy or the Godmother will agree that those products are what you call "sweet". However, I happen to quite like the scent, and I do agree with LUSH's description that it brightens the mood. 
I wouldn't usually go for a floral scent but this was gifted to me by a friend after a particularly stressful week where I was told by her to "chill out and have a relaxing bath!" So I did just that. As with all LUSH products, they all smell so strong, and I really love that. With notes of Ylang Ylang and orange flower absolute, this product reminds me of flower gardens in the summer. And the rainbow is pretty cute, too.
The bubble bar is inspired by Dorothy, the character from The Wizard of Oz, and you can always count on LUSH to bring back nostalgic memories with their products. The heady scent fills up the bathroom and leaves it smelling gorgeous for hours after - and this is true of LUSH shower gels, bubble bars, bath bombs, soaps etc. It's all good stuff!
This bubble bar in particular is preservative free, natural and whats best of all, LUSH does not test on animals! This last point is so important to me and is one of the many reasons that I keep going back to LUSH.

I hope you enjoyed reading this post and it has sparked your interest in the bubble bars. They are amazing, just try one and I promise you'll be impressed. Happy bathing!

  1. Such a unique twist on a very common post!
    Love it!, I've only recently discovered using the shower rather then the tap!
    I feel as if all the lush baths last year where pointless in comparison to how many bubbles I can use now!

  2. So that's how it is. Since I've been taking quite awefully long baths, I get more and more frustrated when I don't get the amount of bubbles I want (which is a lot) So thank you for sharing this!

  4. I love bubble bars but what a fantastic idea to use the shower head to create lots and lots of bubbles, can't actually believe how many it makes from such a small bit! Thanks for sharing.

    Would love you to check out my blog.

  5. Thanks for this post! I am a bit of a Lush addict so I probably don't need to be encouraged to buy more things but bubble bars have always baffled me a little! Now that I understand how to use them properly I'll definitely be adding one or two (or five) into my basket next time I'm in there!!

    Thank you :)

    1. Hello, you're very welcome, I'm also a LUSH addict (it's an illness, I'm sure of it) and I've loved bubble bars for some time now but always been disappointed with the amount of bubbles. Now I've found this method, I'm so impressed by them!
      Love your blog by the way :) Daniela x

  6. Wow, that's a great way to use bubble bars! I've always just held mine under the tap until I get enough, then put it away until the next use. This way is a lot better though, you use so much less!

    I'm so glad I found your blog! If you'd like to follow each other, I'd be happy to keep in touch! Just let me know on my blog :)
