Not quite sure what this series is about? Pop over (haha – see what I did there?) to this blog post to find out…
I can sometimes get a bit carried away with my normal reviews – and by carried away I mean, review posts that resemble the Never-ending Story (aaaaah, now that got me thinking about Falcor…gosh, how I used to love that dog with his pearly back and big nostrils). So, where I was going with that is these reviews are short , (sort of) concise and to the point. There’s always a point when it comes to LUSH, the point is: BUY MORE LUSH!
Pop In The Bath comes in an array of different colours, I chose a pink one (obviously) but all of them have the same scent – a mix of bergamot, lemon and mandarin. This bubble bar was inspired by Mary Poppins, who blew in on the East wind and landed at 17 Cherry Tree Lane. Why? Because after a particularly troublesome day, this little bar is said to soothe all your woes. It’s like chicken soup for the soul, but instead of chicken soup they used mandarin oil (an uplifting citrus oil).
You really need not use the whole bubble bar for just one bath – I quarter mine with a knife and then crumble a piece under running water. It creates a lovely mountain of snow white bubbles with a very subtle citrus-y scent. I must admit I was a bit disappointed with the intensity of the scent once the bubble bar was dissolved. I have even used a whole Pop In The Bath bubble bar in the past and the scent was still very subtle and it only changed the bath water a teeny tiny bit. The picture below is one whole Pop In The Bath bubble bar dissolved in my bath and as you can see, the colour of the bath water wasn’t amazing unfortunately.
I don’t dislike this bubble bar because I know there are ladies who prefer a more subtle scent. As mentioned before, LUSH bubbles are the best bubbles I’ve ever experienced – and yes, I do believe they are very different to other normal, boring bubbles. A LUSH bubble sounds different when it pops & they don’t disappear within a couple of minutes of you getting in the bath.
Pop In The Bath doesn’t dry out the skin but I also don’t find it particularly moisturising either. It’s like quiet, introverted girl in your group of friends…she might not be the most interesting person you have ever met, but she has her place in the world and someone else will like / love her because she is so reserved.
Geez, you know you’ve gone off the deep end when you start comparing a bath product to a person.
Ok, so my final thoughts: Pop In The Bath will definitely appeal to someone who does not want to take a bath in vibrant coloured water, nor do they want their nostrils filled with an over-powering scent. A bubble bath is always fun, though, so I’m always happy when I get to take a LUSH bath.
Here’s a little something you didn’t know… Pop In The Bath has the same fragrance as the LUSH Olive Branch shower gel (and the fragrance will probably be a bit more intense too), so if you’re more of a shower-girl then pick up Olive Branch instead.
