Remember that one time, a long time ago, when I placed a huge Lush UK order? Well, I’m still not done reviewing everything I got back then. Because of my love for bubble bars, I did include quite a lot of bubble bars in that order. Including the Lush Brightside Bubble Bar. It’s a huge bubble bar you can use multiple times and it looks like the orange and yellow version of the famous Lush The Comforter Bubble Bar. It took me a while to get to testing it, but I have and that means that it’s time for a review. If you’re interested in finding out what this Lush Brightside Bubble Bar is all about, make sure you continue reading this post!
Like I said, the Lush Brightside Bubble Bar does look very familiar when it comes to its shape, size and design. It might remind you of the famous pink The Comforter bubble bar from Lush. The one everyone thinks of when they hear the word ‘bubble bar’. Or at least, the one I think of when I’m thinking of bubble bars. Anyway, this bubble bar looks pretty much exactly the same. The only difference is the colour. The Brightside bubble bar isn’t pink, it’s yellow and orange and it looks really darn pretty.
The Brightside bubble bar is really darn big. It weighs quite a lot and compared to other bubble bars, you really get a great bang for your buck with this one. Bubble bars are more durable than bath bombs since you don’t have to use the entire thing, but compared to the normal bubble bar, Brightside is even more durable. If you don’t have that much to spend or it you don’t like to spend a lot of money on bath products, this might be a great option for you. It’s not the cheapest bubble bar in store, but you get a lot of product so the best rate per bath.
According to Lush, Brightside is a refreshing and uplifting bubble bar. It smells fresh and should leave you feeling jolly. This is what Lush says about it on their website:
When you’re chewing on life’s gristle, don’t grumble, give a whistle! Hop in the bath with one of these uplifting bubble bars, Sicilian mandarin, bergamot and tangerine essential oils to help you look on the bright side of life! Its jazzy bright colours will create magnificent orange bath water, and the sunny citrus fragrance is sure to leave you jolly and refreshed.”
It does sound pretty darn interesting. I have to say that generally speaking I’m not crazy about fresh scents or citrussy scents, but somehow I do like the scent of Brightside. It’s really nice and uplifting, like they claim. It’s not something very calming, but now that it’s a bit hotter outside I really like scents like this one. It’s fresh and fruity and that’s a good combination.
When it comes to ingredients the Brightside bubble bar looks fine. It’s nothing too crazy. It has the basic bubble bar ingredients in it and some oils like Sicilian red mandarin oil, tangerine oil and bergamot oil in it for the scent. It does have a bit of perfume in it, but it’s pretty much on the bottom of the list so it’s not that bad.
When you want to use a bubble bar -like Brightside- you have to crumble a piece of it underneath the running tap. It depends on your own personal preference how much of the bubble bar you like to use. I used about one fourth of it and it resulted in a TON of bubbles. I mean, look at this picture. It’s incredible. So if you do really like bubbles, Brightside is really going to work for you.
Aside from creating mountains of strong bubbles, Brightside also adds a tint to your bath water. Like expected, the water will turn orange. I actually like that colour more than I initially expected. When it comes to bath water I really dislike the colour yellow, and since orange is quite close to yellow I didn’t think I’d love this all too much. But in fact I do, it looks really fresh and it’s a super nice tint of orange.
The scent is nice and present when you’re in the tub, but it’s not overpowering. I do think it will depend on the amount of product that you use, how strong the scent will be. But you really don’t have to worry about it being too light. Even after taking the bath, my bathroom still had this amazing Lush scent in it.
All in all I do really like the Lush Brightside Bubble Bar. It’s not the most exciting Lush product in my entire collection, but I do think it’s a great staple product to have. It’s really nice smelling, the colours are stunning and it creates tons and tons of bubbles. It’s also very huge, so for the amount of money you pay you do get a lot. In conclusion I think this is definitely a great bubble bar for summer and therefore I’d definitely recommend getting it now it’s hot outside!
And with that being said, I’m pretty sure I’ve mentioned everything I wanted to when it comes to this bubble bar. Thank you guys so much for reading today’s review, and be sure to let me know what you think of the Brightside bubble bar from Lush!
