LUSH "Dorothy" Bubble Bar Review

LUSH "Dorothy" Bubble Bar
During my trip to Portland, we did a bit of shopping and went to one of my favorite stores--LUSH. I haven't to LUSH in ages and I forgot how nice it was to browse and pick out delicious bath goodies. I didn't want to spend too much money but I did pick up the much-loved "Dorothy" Bubble Bar. I've been eyeing this bad boy for years but for one reason or another, I never bought it. But during my Portland LUSH visit, the girl that was helping me was so nice and so helpful that after she told me "Dorothy" was her favorite, I knew that I was a goner.

 According to LUSH, the "Dorothy" bubble bar's scent is composed of ylang ylang, sweet figs, and orange oil. I should've known because I am an absolute sucker for ylang ylang and citrus scents. It smells fresh and light and delicious. It isn't overwhelming and added to the calm atmosphere I was trying to create. Plus, isn't it the most adorable thing you've ever seen? Gosh. It is so darn cute!

 When I took my bath, I used the whole bar because I figured (since I'm going back to college) that I had better go big or go home. The whole bar created a decent amount of bubbles. I wasn't blown away but I was pleasantly surprised. I never get over how fun it is to crumble the bar under the water and see the bath just explode with bubbles.

The bubbles lasted for a really long time--somewhere in the neighborhood of three or four hours--but when they finally disappeared, I was left with this beautiful blue water. I sort of felt like I was a mermaid or something. But besides the bubbles and the colored water, what else does the bubble bar have to offer? Well, "Dorothy" is made with a moisturizing orange oil that coats the skin while you're in the bath. It isn't greasy but it does leave your skin feeling nice and smooth. 

However, I just looked up this product on the LUSH website and realized that I paid $6.25 for a bath. That's insane! I must not have been reading the correct sign when I picked this product up. That's insane. As much as I loved this product, I don't think I'll be repurchasing it any time soon. It's one of those things that you can't justify buying for yourself but its nice to receive as a gift.
