Lush Bubble Beard Bubble Bar Bath Results Review Belle-amie

As you may have seen in my last haul, I picked up a few things in the Lush Christmas half price sale. This included the Bubblebeard bubble bar which cost me £2.47. This was the first product I have tried by Lush and I was really excited to see how it turned out.

Bubblebeard is in the shape of a white moustache with shimmer on. It is a reusable bubble bar on a stick which you swirl in your bath under a warm running tap to make lots of bubbles. This bubble bar has notes of cedarwood and sandalwood to create a very relaxing smell, so is perfect to use before bed.

When I went to swirl this in my bath, I was a bit worried the stick wasn't very strong, so I actually held the bubble bar in my hand and swirled it (luckily the water wasn't boiling hot!). In seconds I could see bubbles forming, and after gently swirling it in the bath for no more than a minute, I achieved the amount of bubbles in the photo above. The whole bath was covered in fluffy, white bubbles! When I took the bar out, I noticed that not a lot of it had been used and it still had the moustache shape. So I'm hoping this will last me a good amount of time. I did find it a bit hard to find somewhere for this to dry out as I didn't want it sticking to a surface and breaking when I picked it up again.
When I was in the bath, I did feel very relaxed but couldn't really smell any scent from the bubbles. I also found that the shimmer on the bar hadn't made my water glittery at all which I liked! The bubbles lasted until I got out the bath which was around 30-40 minutes later.
One thing that I didn't like about the bubble bar was the amount of time it took it to dry! For about 2 days I had this wet, white blob on a stick just sitting in my room. Maybe next time I won't place the whole bar in the bath!

Overall I did enjoy using this product as I liked the amount of bubbles it produced, however I was hoping for a stronger smell whilst I was in the bath. I'm hoping that the Magic Wand bubble bar will be better with this! Unfortunately, this is a Christmas product so unless you can find it in a Lush store in the sale, you can't buy it anymore! Hopefully they will have them out next Christmas!

Have you tried any Lush bubble bars? Which one is your favourite?

  4. I think I must have a dodgy one 'cause as much as I swish it around the bath, it makes hardly any bubbles! I literally spend five minutes swishing it around and it fills about a third of the bath, which is a shame as I've heard so many good things and it smells lovely! xo

  11. Shame it doesn't smell as nice as it does on the stick! I'm glad you said it didn't use much in one bath because I was hesitating buying it in case it was a one-bath-wonder! I'm having the same problem with Lush products, I have no idea where to put it after I've used it, I used a sugar scrub bar the other day and had to find an old ice cream tub to keep it in haha! xx

  12. This looks really adorable, and it's such a good idea! It's a shame it doesn't smell very strong though, since us beauty bloggers love yummy scents :)

  13. Haha oh no, what a shame that it doesn't dry quickly and you just have to leave the soggy blob sitting out in the open!! Looks like it gave you a nice bubble bath though (even though the scent wasn't superb)! :)
