Love, Lust…LUSH – The Comforter Bubble Bar

So here we have another new series on the blog, this one is a tribute to my LUSH obsession.  I am a proud LUSH addict and will not be seeking professional help anytime soon.

My idea with this series is to do short reviews on LUSH products, nothing too long as I know you guys also like the shorter type reviews.  If you have a specific product you would like me to do a review on, leave me a comment below.  You will be feeding my addiction, but I’ll be more than happy to place an order and give the specific product a go!

Just a little disclaimer:  1.  99% of the products I will review, were not sent to me by LUSH (a girl can dream though…), so as with all my other reviews, these are my 100% honest opinion.  I do love most LUSH products, but there has been 2 specific products so far, that I have not been impressed with (the one was the Marilyn Hair Treatment & perhaps the other one will be my second post in this series).  Oh, and 2.  There will be a couple of limited edition Christmas collection products in the mix (I went a bit crazy with the Christmas products last year), so just bear in mind that some of them may not be available for purchase right now.

On with the review then…

The Comforter is one of LUSH’s best selling bubble bars – if you’re unfamiliar with what a bubble bar is, it’s a solid bar that you crumble under your running bath water and it creates big luscious bubbles.  Not just any bubbles, though, LUSH bubbles.  There is a difference between your average bubble and a LUSH bubble, a LUSH bubble sounds different when it pops (almost like a cuter, more audible pop) & LUSH bubbles don’t disappear within a couple of minutes.  The bubbles are there to stay throughout your bath.  You know how some bubbles start to disappear as soon as you start using your soap or shower gel?  That’s not the case with the LUSH bubbles, they just keep chilling around you like you guys are BFFs.

The scent of The Comforter contains blackcurrant, but to be honest, the scent is more of a sweet mixed fruit scent to me.  It turns the bath water into a delightful vibrant pink colour (who doesn’t love taking a PINK bath?) and the scent lingers in the air for quite some time.  I find when I use The Comforter, it not only fills our bedroom with it’s wonderful scent, but also the whole upstairs area.

The Comforter bubble bar does leave the skin feeling moisturised, but it’s not a bath melt (or something like Butterball), so it’s not super moisturising.  But it also doesn’t dry out the skin, like some cheaper bubble baths do.  The scent lingers on the skin for a couple of hours and Neal always comments on the way I smell whenever I take a bath with this beauty.

The Comforter retails for R 54,50 at LUSH Cavendish Square, LUSH V&A Waterfront and the LUSH SA online store.  I know this might sound a bit pricey but this is one of their biggest bath bars and you could easily get 4 to 6 uses out of it.  This bubble bar is Vegan & cruelty-free.

I use The Comforter when I’ve had a really bad day, and to be honest, it really is comforting (so the name is fitting) and definitely brightens up my day.

Have you tried The Comforter?  Do you love it as much as I do?

    Definitely one of my faves! Love the post and the new idea. :)

    • Luzanne 24 January 2014 / 13:16

      Thanks for commenting, Chicara! :)

    As always, your photos are to die for!

    I havent tried this bubble bar, have tried ballistics and bath melts. Now you have me longing for one of these.

    Will have to place an online order. You are feeding MY addiction now hahahaaa

      Thank you so much, Ronel! 😀 You are too sweet!

      I’m happy to feed any type of LUSH addiction 😉 x

    Fabulous review, Luzanne!!!

    You have such a lovely bath, I wish I had a bath like that. I have tried this one and I agree, it doesnt smell like blackcurrant at all, it smells like fruity sweets. This is my number 1 fav bath product from Lush.


    • Luzanne 24 January 2014 / 13:17

      Thank you, Zee 😛

      It is quite a lekker bath, I will admit. YES, you are so right – the scent is very similar to a fruit type of sweet / candy! x

  4. Em Cameron 24 January 2014 / 13:09

    Love this bubble bar from Lush, and I totes agree with you about the bubbles being different to other normal bubbles.

    You take the best photos, Lu, so clear and interesting.


    • Luzanne 24 January 2014 / 13:18

      LUSH makes the BEST bubbles! And thank you for your kind words regarding my photographs, I really appreciate it! xxx

  5. Caryn 24 January 2014 / 13:21

    PLEASE do a review on Ultrabland (I have heard so many mixed reviews on this) and Ocean Salt facial scrub. I want to try the Ocean Salt but I’m scared the salt particles are too abrasive and I scrub my face off – lol!

    I haven’t tried this bubble bar but will defs give it a try next time I do a Lush shop.

    • Luzanne 24 January 2014 / 13:23

      I’ll be happy to do reviews on those 2 for you, Caryn. Ultrabland is actually the product I was referring to in the beginning of the blog post (one product I’m not raving about at the moment).

      I’m happy to take the plunge and potentially scrub the skin off my face for you – haha! But LUSH is so amazing, I doubt they would sell a product that does that. 😉

    • Luzanne 24 January 2014 / 13:24

      Agreed, Nicole… It’s such a sweet, girly scent! xxx

  6. Clara Dinkelmann 24 January 2014 / 16:35

    Oe-oe! Please do a review on BIG conditioner, I just cant decide if I should get it becoz its quite expensive…

    Luv this new series. Im a proud lush addict too.

    • Luzanne 24 January 2014 / 22:40

      Yes, you’re right – it is quite pricey, especially if they cut off a big chunk for you. I bought a piece the last time I was at LUSH at it set me back about R 100! I’ll definitely do a review for you, Clara. :)

  7. adajeannie 24 January 2014 / 21:02

    i forecast an online shopping session coming up! Thank you for your great review. xx

    • Luzanne 24 January 2014 / 22:40

      Haha! I think an online LUSH shopping sesh is in order soon… :) x

  8. Lily 24 January 2014 / 21:45

    Sounds so relaxing! I love your bath setup, as you know, I’m not much into taking baths, I prefer showers–but your little setup and reviews on Lush products are so tempting!
    Can’t wait to read more of this series.
    I may just give you a little list of things I may want to read a review on. Hehe!

    • Luzanne 24 January 2014 / 22:42

      Thanks, Lily! :)

      Perhaps you should start out with something from LUSH that is non-bath-related and ease into things that way… I used to be just like you, I hardly ever took baths. But then when LUSH came along with all their bath bombs and bath melts and bubble bars, I just couldn’t help myself. Once you’ve tried LUSH, you’ll be hooked!

      Happy weekend, Lily! xxx

  9. Stephanie 25 January 2014 / 03:21

    Yes yes more of these!! lol
    I am ashamed to say I have never tried Lush but I am so getting online 2rw and ordering a few bits. I just saw they have their VDay items already.

    • Luzanne 26 January 2014 / 12:01

      No way, girl! Never tried anything from LUSH!? You need to get your hands on some products ASAP – you will LOVE them! :)

  10. KateF (FergliciousKate) 26 January 2014 / 10:56

    Was sad to hear the Marilyn hair treatment didn’t work as promised. I have some in today for the first time (got it for free thankfully!) and have had it in for a few hours lol! Lets hope my hair doesn’t fall out 😉

    Would love to know how Lush’s purple shampoo works for blondes if you get round to trying it :-)

    • Luzanne 26 January 2014 / 12:03

      Haha! I hope the treatment works for you, let me know what you think about it. :)

      Thanks, I’ll definitely give it a go – I have only one purple shampoo product that has really worked for me so far, so I’m intrigued to see if the LUSH one will impress me. 😀

  11. Nadia van der Mescht 28 January 2014 / 19:03

    Look at all those pretty bath things – you lucky girl! I tried my first Lush product this December & can’t wait to go back when next in CT. x

    • Luzanne 28 January 2014 / 21:53

      Haha! 😛 I do love ‘beautifying’ my bath area, it makes taking a bath so much more enjoyable. :)

      What did you try out? Next time you go to LUSH, you’ll be walking out with a bag full of products guaranteed. I can’t help myself, every single time I walk out of the shop with no less than 5 or 6 products! xxx

  12. Lauren Henderson 28 January 2014 / 21:44

    OBsessed with this bubble bar from Lush – defs one of my favourites! Does the South african Lush stock bubbleroons? I must give those a go too – they’re so cute, like macarons! <3

    Great review!

    • Luzanne 28 January 2014 / 21:55

      We do have a couple of Bubbleroons here in South Africa but funny enough, I’ve never tried one. Will most definitely get a couple next time I’m in a LUSH shop…

      Thank you for commenting, Lauren! :)

  13. Irina 31 January 2014 / 21:41

    Just used mine for the first time the other night- Love!! Looking forward to more Lush reviews

    • Luzanne 1 February 2014 / 17:53

      It’s such a lovely bubble bar, the scent is so delicious! Thanks, Rina! :)

  14. Michelle 3 February 2014 / 13:14

    I can not wait for Lush to open here in March. Everyone keeps telling me to just order online but I want the whooooooole lush experience 😉
    Great review, thanks.

    • Luzanne 3 February 2014 / 18:47

      You guys are SO lucky to be getting a LUSH store, I’m so jealous!! I agree, you want to be able to walk into the store to sniff and sample EVERYTHING! x
