Review: Lush Lucky Cat Bubble Bar
The horrors of Lucky Cat bath bomb were still fresh in my mind, so I wasn’t too enthusiastic about a second Lucky Cat product. The bubble bar has the exact same look and size as the bath bomb, which makes it even harder to not be biased. I decided to buy it anyway, I had to give it another chance! I love cats and I love pink, so this one HAS to be a hit, right?

Lush Lucky Cat Bubble Bar costs £4.95 / $0.00 (I don’t see it for sale in NA) / €6,75 and is part of the exclusive Harajuku bubble bar launch. A part of these bubble bars was released on March 27 (in The Netherlands) and the second part will be released on June 26. Like I said, this bubble bar looks exactly the same as the bath bomb, which is kinda confusing. The bath bomb was real shitty, so I hope the bubble bar has got some improvements. It still has the Ghost scent the bath bomb had, which I like — although the bubble bar smells a tad more spicy to me. It’s a very floral scent, in which the jasmine is very present. Neroli and ylang ylang add another floral note, creating a luxurious scent. It’s an enjoyable scent — not my favorite, but still good nonetheless.
What do I think?
Despite Lucky Cat being all pink, there’s a plot twist: it’s just the outer layer that’s pink. It’s secretly orange. Man, I was hoping for a pink bath! I ended up using half the bubble bar, which gave me a lot of soft, floral bubbles and orange water. In terms of the end color, it really looked like Party Popper! The floral Ghost scent was slightly present, nothing too overpowering. I enjoyed the bath, the scent was pretty subtle, but I don’t think a strong floral scent like Ghost should be too strong. The bubbles kept with me throughout bathing, and afterwards the tub was easily rinsed clean — unlike the bath bomb version.
I’m positive about this bubble bar, but I won’t be buying it again. In a Lush world full of delicious bubble bars, there’s ones I prefer over Lucky Cat. However, if you’re a fan of cats, this is a fun bubble bar to have. It’s also very cute to gift to someone! Also, Ghost scent lovers won’t be disappointed this time.
