Lush the Brightside Spring 2013

The Brightside, a most perfect Lush Bubble Bar for this Muse as I’m ALWAYS looking on the bright side of things. Seriously, life is too short not to look on the bright side. There’s always a sunny day ahead after all those clouds, promise!

My sister is 12 years older than I am but I still get her an Easter Basket every year and Lush Brightside is definitely being popped into her basket.

Take a look!

Lush the Brightside Bubble Bar

This is a MASSIVE Bubble Bar that’s done in the style of the Comforter. P.S. BTW the Comforter is my all time favorite Lush Bubble Bar. This seems thicker than the Comforter though and just HUGE! If you’re greedy and use the entire thing in your bath you’ll get bubbles as high as the ceiling! Seriously, this is some crazy big bubble bar.

That aside, I’d recommend slicing it into two halves and using it for two different baths or if you’re feeling extra economical slice it into four pieces!

It smells INCREDIBLE! Just like its name Brightside is bright, cheery, sunny, and all about citrus. Citrus oils bring a bright sunny fragrance to your bath and tone and cleanse your skin as well! Sicilian mandarin, tangerine and bergamot oils create the most intense citrus-y fragrance every so your entire bathroom and beyond will be smelling like tangerines well after you take a bath. The fragrance just lingers and lingers particularly on your skin which is left soft, smooth, and slick after your bath!

Lush the Brightside

How do you use a Lush Bubble Bar? Simple! Just crumble it under running water and it’ll melt down and create TONS of bubbles and lather. You can also turn on your shower to really work it into a lather as you fill the tub! Or take an old pair of stockings, cut off the foot portion and a little up the leg, crumble the bubble bar inside, and tie the stocking under the running water.

Want a piece of sunshine in your bath?

The Brightside brings the sun right to your bathtub. But only for a limited time. This Bubble Bar was launched for Easter/Spring and will disappear soon!

Get it now at Lush Boutiques or online at


I admit I have a tidy stock of ten sealed in ziplock baggies that I ordered online. Shh don’t tell anyone but I can’t watch these disappear they are just too good NOT to stash away!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse. If you’re that person feel free to reach out and leave a comment or follow me on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Bloglovin‘.

    OMG I LOVE this bubble bar! It smells soooo sooo sooo great & very uplifting! I cut mine in 2 but was almost tempted to try the whole thing & see how much bubbles I really get!

    Also maybe pair this with the Enchanter bath bomb for more citrus good-ness!

    • the Muse

      I admit I’ve tried an entire one lol…it was insane…bubbles were everywhere, they were over my head ;-D or henata!

    That’s sweet that you give your sis Easter gifts. My brother is 13 years older than me but we never exchange gifts. My mom still gets me a few things every year though. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I love the Comforter and so does my hubby. I have a Lush GC so I may try this bath bar.
