A’pieu Bubble Bubble Maker Review

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!

Nifty right?

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!

    Omg, this really does look like whip cream!! I feel the urge to own one just to play with foam!

    I’m more intrigued with the brand A’pieu since I haven’t heard of it until recently. My sister just got me an a’pieu sheet mask from a Nordstrom k-beauty pop up.

    You were in Seattle?! I could have met my favorite beauty blogger!

    • Isabella Muse

      ahem, I’ve been known to play with the foam lol! Oh yeah they did the chocolate milk face mask at the kbeauty pop up! a’pieu has some nice stuff, their color cosmetics aren’t half bad 😀 Yeah! Few months ago! Omg I’d have loved to have met up 🙂

      • Yen

        Darn, lol gotta check Instagram more often to see if you post about traveling.

        • Isabella Muse

          I need to post more to instagram I so such at documenting my life lol! I don’t know how people do it because I’m so involved in the moment I don’t bother sitting posting photos to social media! I admire people that are like, “hey let me stop and post photos on facebook and instagram” I just get caught up in being there.

  • Lana

    Wha??? How have i lived without knowing about this?
    Seriously it does look delicious. Sadly I’m too frugal to fork over the cash for one. My hands will have to do.

    • Isabella Muse

      they are dirt cheap 🙂 it’s like five to eight bucks so not too expensive 😀

      • Isabella Muse

        oh by the way, oo35mm actually has generic bubble makers the last time I was in there for like six bucks! They are no name but same concept 🙂

  • Sarah

    Oh my goodness I want one so badly now!

    You find the cutest products!

  • Isa

    Hah, it’s totally not the same thing, but as a child I used to love to play with my mom’s hair mousse. I was just fascinated with the texture! The foam you created with this looks a bit like that!

    • Isabella Muse

      omg me too! My sister always used mousse and I was simply fascinated by it 😀

  • Carrie

    This is so neat! I’ve never heard of these, but want to try it now.

  • Karen

    I just bought one from amazon. What type of cleansers do you put in? Help

    • Isabella Muse

      Hi actually recommended one in this post and discussed which ones to use. Hope this helps!?

      • Karen

        Sorry, should have said Stripped is going to be too harsh for me. My face can be sensitive and dry. Guess i will try what I have. I just really want that soft and light texture

        • Isabella Muse

          cream cleansers that lather work best! Gel ones create a lot less bubbles! What do you typically wash your face with I can let you know if it’ll work! Anything that’s creamy and foams up is a good choice to use this one 🙂

          • kamikity

            I really love Origins Checks & Balances (Ulta sale tomorrow!!) Shiseido Ibuki purifying cleanser, and Shiseido Perfect Whip Cleansing foam.

    If you are near a Daiso(Japanese dollar+ store), I got one from there about half year ago for $1.50! It’s just plain white color with no prints/designs, but I am sure it works just the same.

    • Isabella Muse

      please don’t talk about daiso here, it makes me want to book a flight to California 🙂 New York is a daiso-free wasteland, we have everything bu we do not have daiso and it hurts so bad.

  • mushroomjoey

    If you have a Daiso near you.. which I do.. this thingy is sold for a buck fity! 😀

    • Isabella Muse

      I wish. East coaster here, absolutely no Daiso in our concrete jungle!

  • Michelle Luna

    Whaaaaaaaat, I need one of these, maybe it’ll get me to wash my face more than once a week if it involves a fun bubble toy. I can’t believe I’ve never heard of this!
