I don't take baths very often (I prefer showering), but I had to try one of the Lush Bubble Bars for the 'scent and bubbles' experience. I picked Lush's signature scent Karma and gave it a try together with my BF. Too much info? Well, two opinions are better than one, don't you think? =)
''Good Karma is difficult to come by these days, so that’s why we created a bubble bar with our signature pine and patchouli fragrance in a potent swirl of time-warping bubbles so you can bathe in Karma too. Our customers begged us for a bubble bar with the same orange and multi-layered spice fragrance as our perfume. Now you can transport your senses to a middle-eastern spice market from the comforting confines of your tub. Since Karma is a fragrance that keeps on giving, it was the least we could do for our loyal fans.'' (Lush USA)
Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Cream of Tartar, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Lauryl Betaine, Perfume, Cocamide DEA, Patchouli Oil, Sweet Orange Oil, Lavandin Oil, Pine Oil, Lemongrass Oil, Elemi Oil, Gardenia Extract, *Citral, *Geraniol, *Citronellol, *Limonene, *Linalool, Colour 15510, Colour 14700.
(*occurs naturally in essential oil)
How to use: Crumble under running warm water as you fill the tub. The stronger your water pressure, the more bubbles you will make; we encourage experimentation for best results. To get the most out of your bubble bars, keep them in a cool, dry place.
I used half of the bubble bar for one bath and while the water was running, I crumbled the bar under it. The bubbles formed immediately, water became orange and the patchouli/citrus scent filled the bathroom. It was nice to just lay for a while, relax and enjoy the oriental scent. The bubbles were nice as well and they didn't pop as fast as they do when you use a regular bubble bath (at least the ones I've tried so far). My BF liked it too, although he didn't appreciate the fact that water became orange - he said it looks dirty to him. :) As long as it brings out good karma, it's all good.
I suggest you visit your local Lush store with your significant other and choose a bubble bar together. That way you'll both be able to enjoy it to the fullest. And don't forget to have fun with the bubbles!
You can buy Karma Bubble Bar in Lush stores from ~ $8.60/ £3.25/ €4.95. Prices vary from country to country.
