Lush Three Gold Rings Bubble Bar

Well its no secret how disapointed I was with the new bubbleroon I purchased to try. So I decided to find out if I did anything wrong, or if maybe I just got a bum one. I phoned my local lush store where I had purchased it and happened to get the manager on the phone. I explained to her what happened and asked if I had done something wrong by treating as I would a bubble bar. While I used it correctly, she had already tried it and gotten much better results. She said due to the shea butter in the product it would bubble less, but it should have done better than it did. She didn't question me, just offered to replace it with another one or a different product. I had said I would just like to try another one, but by the time I had gotten back into the store I had gotten so many responses from others that had the same experience that I no longer trusted it was just a bum bar. So when I mentioned this she suggested a bubble bar. I had never tried this one, and on the sales associate's recommendation I got this one.

Lush describes this one as:

Our most luxurious Bubble Bar this Christmas, Three Gold rings shares the rich vanilla fragrance of our Crème Anglais Body Lotion. Named for its three shimmering gold rings, this beauty is a sophisticated bath time treat. With soya milk powder to soften skin, fluffy, cozy bubbles and a delightfully rich fragrance – a mixture of vanilla absolute, sweet orange oil and myrrh, Three Gold rings is pure indulgence– ‘tis the season!

The crème de la crème of Bubble Bars. 

Mounds of richly scented bubbles and golden waters make this a bath fit for royalty.

Vanilla absolute (extracted from vanilla beans) gives this one its delightfully comforting fragrance.

Now let me warn you. I like BUBBLES. LOTS AND LOTS of bubbles. I love nothing more than to take a nice hour long bubble bath and read a good book. And when I am done the bath, I still want there to be yummy smelling bubbles. So I tend to use more product than probably needed. I know it says a bubble bar is for 1-2 baths - THEY ARE LIARS!!! It gets me FOUR baths, and trust me, I use WAY more than needed. This should EASILY give a NORMAL person 8 or so nice bathtub fulls of bubbles. But for me........ four.

Now what I noticed (and this is true of all my bubble bars) they are all much more dry and crumbly than the bubbleroons before they get wet. But it cut like a normal bubble bar so I was not worried. In my stash of bath stuffs (comprised of baiscally Lush, Molton Brown & Fruits&Passions) I always have my trusty Pampered Chef Quikut Paring Knife (2.00 and worth every penny!) for cutting bubble bars.

Now even though the product feels more dry than the bubbleroon, you will see right away that it didnt crumble like them. It dissolved perfectly and normally like all my other bubble bars and quite honestly how I expected the bubbleroon to act. And.............. A BATH FULL OF BUBBLES!!!

As you can see, as the water gets deeper you get more and more and more bubbles. And as you can see, this is with only a third of the bathtub filled with water!

So the bubbleroon may have been a bust, but this yummy smelling bubble bar is now a holiday must in my books!!!
