Review: Lush - Blue Skies and Fluffy Clouds Bubble Bar

Another Bubble Bar I have been using from Lush for over four years now. I did review it as part of a bath cocktail here and here but haven't reviewed it as a single item.
This particular bar seems to have lost its swirls, boo!
"This bubble bar is so lovely we had to make it bigger than the rest. Use this when you want nothing more than to have your head in the clouds and daydream some hours away. Blue sky bathwater and white fluffy clouds of bubbles ensure you don’t take life too cirrusly. Calming, grounding, swirly blue and white bar for peaceful baths. A bath in superbly relaxing patchouli scented Blue Skies water is as relaxing as meditating in the peaceful garden of a Far Eastern temple, while enjoying the scents of the exotic blooms cultivated there" - Lush


So I usually break this bubble bar in to three or four pieces and it works well like that. Crumble it up under a running tap and you get lots of lovely bubbles and a nice blue toned water. The first scent I get is of patchouli, I find that it does scent your skin but it doesn't last for too long. Perhaps an hour or two. I find when I use this my skin feels extra soft, and if I am feeling lazy I don't need to use a body moisturiser afterwards, some bath products can be quite drying.

 I find using this in a bath is relaxing but not more or less than a bath would be. What I like about Blue Skies is how it isn't pink and the scent is quite unique to the luxury bath world. You do need to be in a certain mood for using this, I do recommend smelling it or at least having knowledge of what patchouli smells like before purchasing as you don't want to get a surprise.

It is a gender neutral scent, earthy / musty with a hint of mint but not off putting. From what I have read smells similar to Givenchy Gentleman but I have't smelled that so can't verify it.

Oh and I did some nail art a while back based on this bubble bar.
