LUSH Gold Star Bubble Bar Review

By Edited Sep 15, 2016 0 0

Pros

Smells great
Turns the water bright yellow
Makes tons of bubbles

Cons

Scent fades quickly
Leaves gold star glitter all over your tub

Full Review

The Gold Star Bubble Bar is a seasonal product produced by Lush. This item has been around for at least the Christmas 2008 and 2009 season so there's a good chance it will come back for Christmas 2010.

The bubble bar has a cute look which makes it great for gift giving. It consists of a round yellow bar with a big gold star on top. The scent is a little difficult to nail down. It's sort of a spicy yet citrusy fragrance. I detect a little bit of sandalwood in there too.

Now, if you've never used a Lush bubble bar before, the basic method is to crumble the bar under warm running water in your bathtub. I like to break each of my bubble bars in half so that I can get two baths out of them in order to save a little money as Lush addictions can get pretty expensive.

So, the first bath I took with the Gold Star Bubble Bar consisted of the gold star portion of the product and a mango bath melt. I really didn't experience the Gold Star that time as it was overpowered by mango fragrance but the star alone managed to produce quite a few bubbles.

The second time, I used just the yellow disc without any other bath products and I really enjoyed the fragrance. I had a tub full of mounds of bubbles and the water turned a bright yellow. Now, some people might be turned off by neon yellow water but I enjoy it when my Lush products turn the water crazy colors.

My husband walked in while I was bathing and remarked that the bathroom smelled "really good", so I wasn't the only person who enjoyed the scent. I do wish the scent had lingered a little longer on my skin but it was gone after an hour or so.

When I got out of the tub, I discovered another suprise. The yellow portion of the bubble bar contains tiny gold stars. I had some stuck to my body and the rest were scattered across the bottom of my tub. Some people might love this, I was a little bit irritated. I didn't notice the stars at all while I was in the bath and then I had to clean them up afterwards. Next time I use a gold star, I will pop the bubble bar into a piece of pantyhose and tie it shut. That way, any gold stars will stay trapped in the pantyhose to make clean up easier.

In Closing

I have a whole box of these bubble bars that I bought at the annual Lush after Christmas clearance sale. I do enjoy them but I don't think that I'll ever pay full price for them just because if I have to pay full price, I'd rather get one of the bars with a scent that I'm absolutely crazy about.
