I thought I’d do a quick review on my A’pieu Bubble Bubble Maker today because I had mentioned the Etude House Bubble Maker recently in my Real Techniques Cleansing Sponge Review and after that I got a few emails asking what exactly a bubble maker was.
I actually no longer have my Etude House Bubble Maker because I left it in a hotel room in Seattle earlier this Winter. I like to think there’s a maid out there somewhere happily making bubbles with it during her nighty cleansing routine. It’s ok, I had it for a while, it lived a full and happy life making me tons of lather. I actually didn’t purchase a replacement since Etude House isn’t as easy to find offline as some other brands. So, a few months ago while I was in Flushing eating my weight in good ramen I just picked up the A’pieu Bubble Bubble Maker to replace my Etude House one. It’s the same exact tool and I love it just as much.
Anyway, that’s neither here nor there as you probably just want to read the review and find out what exactly a Bubble Maker is right?
A long time ago, in a land not so very far away I discovered the joys of Kose Airy Whip. Airy Whip was one one of my holy grail cleansers for many fine years but since entering my life there have been numerous foaming facial washes that have come and gone like Biore Marshmallow Whip Face Wash, DHC Moisture Fruit Foaming Wash, and hell, nowadays there are even foaming body washes!
I couldn’t begin to tell you what attracts me to foaming cleansers but there’s something terribly gratifying about a cleanser that has the whipped up consistency of a shaving cream. I also have this weird theory that the more lather you work up the deeper the clean you’re getting.
That’s where Bubble Makers come into play. They create lather for you. I know, crazy right considering you have two hands that you can rub together to create lather. Believe me, it’s not the same thing at all.
Bubble Makers are just tiny little pots that have a lid and a small plunge which can be pressed up and down to create a mound of lather from your favorite cleanser. You simply remove the top and plunge from the cup of the Bubble Maker, squirt in your favorite facial cleaner and a tiny bit of water, replace the cap, and plunge, plunge, plunge away. As you plunge you’ll create a mound of foaming lather which you can scoop out to wash your face with. When I say mound, I mean a huge pile of lather! Bubble Makers create a MASS amount of bubbly lather. It’s pretty fun to use but also, I love the fact I can create turn any facial cleanser into a huge pile of bubbles! I find it works best with creamier cleansers (like NYX Stripped Off Whipped Charcoal Cleanser) but gel facial cleansers that lather up will work here too they just won’t create as rich a lather. This is also great if you’re frugal with your cleanser as a tiny bit of cleanser will create a ton of bubbles! I tend to be overly generous with my cleanser though and I squirt a good amount into the Bubble Maker but you can totally do a tiny dollop and it’ll still work to create a ton of lather. Just try not to eat it! Haha, I swear it comes out looking like whipped cream! I just want to get a spoon and eat it!
So, that’s what a bubble maker is 🙂
Now you know!
I personally love mine and use it all the time. If you like foaming cleansers, this little tool is for you!
