I adore bubble baths. For me, they are a time where I practice self-care, relax, unwind and let the day’s worries and stresses melt away. My bubble baths are a little bit of luxury so its only fitting to use the most luxurious products. One of my favourite stores is Lush for their beautiful bath bombs and bubble bars. I picked up the Karma bubble bar and it certainly did not disappoint!
The luxurious Karma bubble bar is an exotic orange and warming patchouli fragrance. Patchouli gives a warm, earthy aroma which is very relaxing and soothes the skin. The orange oil and lemongrass oil work wonderfully together to produce a sweet scent that is refreshing, tangy and juicy. Perfect if you need a little lift at the end of a long day. Interestingly, lemongrass has many uses. It is a toner, has antiseptic and deodorising properties and is used in aromatherapy due to its uplifting and anti-depressant properties. Similarly, orange oil has antimicrobal and toning qulities. Karma bubble bar contains lavandin which is a close relative of lavender and has the same relaxing properties. If you are not a fan of the lavender scent, this may be a good substitute. Pine oil adds a fresh note as well as elemi oil which is traditionally used in incense recipes. Lastly, Karma bubble bar contains mango butter (which is a lot soft than cocoa butter). This softens and moisturises the skin without leaving it feeling greasy. The combination of aromas reminds me of an exotic far-flung island!
Visually, the pyramid-shaped bubble bar is purple with an eye-popping orange stripe topped with a pop of glittering gold which is actually a bath melt! Best crumbled under running water, the bubble bar produces lots of soft scented bubbles and turns the bath water a deep purple which sparkles gold. It actually feels quite magical! As Karma is quite a large bubble bar, you can cut it into smaller pieces therefore, it will last longer and you can use many times over. However, if you are wanting one huge luxurious bubble bath, the I suggest crumbling the whole bar. Personally, I cut mine down into 4 pieces and had plenty for each bath (just remember to keep your bar wrapped up).
I would definitely repurchase the Karma bubble bar as I loved the scent and it made the most magical bath with lots of soft, fluffy bubbles and I felt so calm and relaxed. Priced at a reasonable £5.95, the bar can be cut down into smaller pieces for example, if you cut it into 4 pieces like I did, it makes the bubble bar £1.48 a piece. It would make an excellent treat for a loved one or as a little luxury for yourself!
