Whilst I absolutely adore trying out new beauty products I am somewhat of a novice when it comes to Lush with the biggest reason being the rather high price of their products. Consequently, I can probably count on just two hands the number of Lush products that I have ever purchased. I always feel somewhat overwhelmed when I walk into one of their stores, particularly as there are so many brightly coloured products from which to choose. However, I frequently choose to have a little luxury in my bathroom and my latest purchase is of one of their Bubble Bars, namely A French Kiss and this review discusses my experience of using it.
The appearance of the bubble bar is somewhat strange and if I’m being honest, it looks nothing like a bar, as it resembles more of a blob with a large point and resembles that of a 99 ice cream! It measures approximately 8 cm in height and 7 cm in depth and is white with gorgeous swirls of purple. I was attracted to this particular bar for two reasons; one of which is its’ eye-catching colour and the other as it contains lavender, which is one of my favourite fragrances, particularly as I find it so calming and relaxing. I lifted the bar from the large display basket and was able to immediately witness the gorgeous aroma long before I had placed it underneath my nose. Consequently, my mind was made up that this was the product that would offer me my luxurious and calming bathing experience.Lush market this bubble bar as “luxurious lavender bubbles for deep relaxation”, as it also contains rosemary, thyme and coconut oil to soften the skin. I was a little alarmed when I arrived home and read through the latest edition of Lush Times as whilst I enjoy eating coconut I cannot bear its’ aroma, which has resulted from a rather unfortunate night many years ago when I consumed rather too many glasses of Malibu!
I’m normally one for getting in and out of the bath as quick as I possibly can, as I generally have something else to do. However, each and every time I use a Lush product I lie relaxing in the tub until the water starts to turn cold and my hands and feet have that wrinkly appearance! What I adore about all of the Lush products that I’ve used is that their gorgeous fragrance transfers to my skin, which informs me that this is a high quality product.
I cannot speak highly enough of this absolutely gorgeous handmade bubble bar, which is definitely the height of luxury. I couldn’t agree more where Lush market this product as “C’est magnifique!” as it most certainly is magnificent. As previously stated, I adore the natural aroma of lavender and grow many different varieties of this beautifully fragranced plant in my garden. I enjoy the late summer when I take cuttings from all of my plants and dry out the flowers, which are then strategically placed around my home. I find the gorgeous aroma of lavender very calming and in my opinion it is the perfect aid to assist with the removal of the stresses and strains of a busy day.Whilst this product is pricey, I have to say that it is very luxurious and although it’s not something I would regularly buy, I will make further purchases every now and again. My skin is always left wonderfully soft, smooth and moisturised with a beautiful fragrance that lasts several hours. As this bar contains relaxing and calming fragrances it is obviously best suited for evening use as opposed to a bath before you head off to work, unless of course, your boss doesn’t mind you sleeping at your desk! Another bonus with this product is that it does not leave your bath feeling slippery, as the bar melts perfectly, so there’s no need to get out a scrubbing cloth after your relaxing bath; a chore that I hate after using many beauty products!
As this is such a gorgeous product, I can definitely recommend A French Kiss and consequently, it receives 5 stars from me. I have to admit that although this is quite pricey, I am currently on my second purchase where I was drawn to the Lush store whilst out shopping yesterday, as I love it so much!I hope you found my review useful and would thank you for reading.
