The reason I avoided picking up Green Day Bubble Bar from Lush.com was because it visually did not look appealing. Although the description always seemed rather enticing, with notes of cedarwood, pine and moss, giving the ultimate outdoorsy scent for your bath… I just never bothered with it because honestly it looked like a hock of children’s playdough.
My boyfriend and I recently celebrated out anniversary though, and within a box of Lush goodies he ordered for me, Green Day sat undisturbed at the very bottom of the barrel.
As on the website, you can see that Lush has a photo of Green Day Bubble Bar, and in person Green Day does in fact look 100% like it’s photo. In fact it’s so convincing that I think I got the exact bar they used for the photo.
Once I opened up the bag I was greeted with the scent of pine, which I loved. It was however very mild, and I could only really detect it when I placed it close to my nose. Cedarwood which is a note in my favorite Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue perfume is a scent I absolutely adore. Green Day Bubble Bar though is more pine and citrus than it is cedarwood, which was a mild disappointment. At any rate though, it does have a very outdoorsy scent, and I adore pine in general.
I was hoping that once Green Day was added to my bath, it would amp up the scent, and possibly even release those promised notes of cedarwood!
I cut Green Day in half because I find that using an entire bubble bar is wasteful when it comes to Lush. Mostly you get more than enough bubbles using only half, instead of flopping in the whole bar.
After cutting half the bar in half, I then crumbled it under hot water, and waited for the frothy magic to begin.
Green Day Bubble Bar struggled to produce bubbles at first, but after a good minute or so of water running on the crumbled pieces, the bubbles began to spring up in cloudy foam which I knew I’d love.
I hopped in and immediately smelled noted of pine, and yes… cedarwood was also detectable as well. I doubted Green Day at first, but fell in love with it the moment I stepped in for a soak.
The pine and notes of cedar are very aromatic, but not overbearing. There is also a fresh tinge of something within the bubble bar that I only imagine was the moss Lush mentioned.
So it was official. I was in love with the scent.
That wasn’t the only thing though to love about the Green Day Bubble Bar, because it also turned the bath water a lovely light colored green, which was pretty as heck! Not only that the water turned velvety soft, and left my skin feeling like silk.
That’s not all though, the bubbles lasted the entire 15 minutes while bathing. I got out of the bath, and still bubbles were left floating behind.
Green Day Bubble Bar should not be underestimated. I know on the website it looks a little plain. It even smells a little plain when you first get it in hand. However the moment this little guy hits the water, magic happens, and I highly, highly recommend Green Day to those who adore those outdoorsy type scents. Green Day is sure to impress.
