So I’m not normally much of a bubble bar kind of girl, and much prefer bath bombs. But after visiting lush Oxford street I was won over by the wide range of unique and quirky bubble bars and reusable bubble bars and just couldn’t wait to try them all out!
The first bubble bar that I decided to try out was the divination reusable bubble bar. I was mainly drawn to it because of its unusual name which reminded me of one of the classes from the Harry Potter story’s (I’m a big Harry Potter fan) but I also loved it’s unique look and colour which filled me with excitement.
The divination reusable bubble is still currently only available at the flag ship Oxford street store although it has also made its appearance online on the lush kitchen.
I love the concept of a reusable bubble bar and think it’s a really clever idea. The concept is the the bubble bar will last you for more than one bath hence the name reusable. You use the bubble bar by holding it under the stream of water where is creates lots and lots of lovely bubbles. I tend not to get on to well with reusable bubble bars which is probably why I’m not much of a fan normally. There either dry out and go really hard after one use it fall apart under the water on the first go. So I was looking forward to seeing how I got on with the new reusable bubble bars.
Lush describe this product as:
Divine intervention comes in many forms (in this case reusable) . A bath with this deep grounding blend of rich patchouli, rose and violet leaf is sure to cleanse the mind and point you in the right direction. Hold your questions in your mind, and hold this under running water, swirling around the bath. Allow the magic to happen and you’ll find you had the answers all along.
The thing that I like most about the divination bubble bar is the colour. It boasts a beautiful bronze outer layer which drew me to it like a Magpie.
The scent is also incredible and reminded me very much of the sweets Parma violets. The violet scent really stood out to me and almost overpowered the other more subtle scents. The divination bubble bar contains patchouli , rose and violet leafs. The violet leaf is where the strong violet scent comes from.
After doing a little research Into some of the ingredients I found they boast an array of benefits. Patchouli oil is a wonderful ingredient giving this product a more subtle earthy aroma, lush tend to use patchouli oil in there bath products for its relaxing and uplifting properties ( defiantly a good idea for a bath product) . Rose oil is also used in this product for it moisturise and soothing qualitys. It looks like lush have got this combinations of ingredients spot on.
Once I popped my divination under the running water the grorgeous bronze layer disappeared to show a stunning deep purple colour. The bath started to filling with lashings of bubbles and the water turned a wonderful purple colour.
I was really pleased to see that this bubble bar hardly changed in size and it is defiantly going to last me at least another two baths. I found that the very complex and sensual scent of the divination bubble bar lingered for ages and left my bathroom smelling incredible.
I did however find that the bubbles dissolved quite quickly, but I was still left with the purple water so I didn’t mind to much.
I am really happy to have found a product that has made me love bubble bars again and I can’t wait to try the rest of the range soon.
