How to use bath bombs, bubble bars and more

Love dipping into deep mounds of cloud-like bubbles but hate leaving a trail of packaging behind you? Get the lowdown on how to use Lush’s classic naked products from bath bombs to bubble bars with this handy guide.

The following bath products strip off unnecessary bottles and wrappers, so that you can delve into divine, waste-free baths. Your conscience will be as clean as your skin.

How to Use Bubble Bars ...Let’s get ready to crumble!

From big, boldly scented bubbles to more subtle suds, naked bubble bars are an oh so easy way to indulge in a bubble bath.

Bubble bars shake up the notion of liquid bubble bath, taking many different colours and forms to create a unique experience. Product Inventor and Co-founder Helen Ambrosen explains: "Creating solid bubble bars turned into an art form. You could make all sorts of shapes, all sorts of sizes, but also you didn’t need a synthetic preservative." From candy sweet, fresh and green, or dark and earthy, there’s a bubble bar for all the family. Simply crumble the bar under running water, swish, and relax in lashings of trouble-free bubbles. Most bubble bars are perfect for one blissful bath, so you don’t need to worry about using too much or too little.

Bigger bars, like The Comforter and Blue Skies And Fluffy White Clouds, are good for more than one use, so crumble as much as you crave under the tap and store the rest in a cool, dry place ready for when the mood takes you. The more you use, the bigger the bubbles!

For a bar that lasts a little longer, a reusable bubble bar is the answer. These can be twirled in your bath water until it is brimming with beautiful bubbles, then whipped out of the water and into a cool, dry place ready for you to summon splendid suds again.

How to Use Bath Bombs ...Izzy wizzy let’s get fizzy

If bubbles aren’t your bag but you’re fanatical about fizz, perhaps a bath bomb is for you? These solid orbs packed with beautifully scented essential oils, lustres and kaleidoscopic colours will transport you to new dimensions. Get lost in thick forests or jetted deep into the cosmos, all whilst sitting in your bath tub.

Once you are ready to embark on a bathtime adventure, simply run your bath and climb aboard. Place your chosen bath bomb in the water and get lost in its whirling, twirling wonder. Why not celebrate your out of this world experience by creating your own bath art?

How to Use Bath Oils ...Five minutes peace

Bath oils are made for tranquil baths. Sink into deeply soothing waters and let rich organic shea and Fair Trade cocoa butter glide over your skin, lulling you into deep repose. Unwind knots that have gathered through the day, embrace hydrated skin, breathe in aromatic essential oils and let the day’s tension fall from your shoulders. Wrapped in a soft muslin cloth, Ceridwen's Cauldron transforms your bathwater into a soft, oaty and milky paradise that Cleopatra would be envious of, and releases celestial scents. 

One bath oil is all you need for five (or 50) minutes’ peace. Let the tap run over the oil until it turns into melty goodness, releasing clouds of fragrance. Alternatively pop it in the bath once it’s run and allow the water to infuse with all those magnificent natural oils and butters. The ultimate reward after a long day!

How to Use Bubble Sticks ...Making an Impressionism

Sometimes you just need to add a pop to your bath art and Crayon bubble stick is just the ticket. As your bath runs, hold under the tap to build mounds of bubbles before dipping your crayon in the water and stroking, dotting, splashing and drawing over the foam (and/or your tiles) to create your very own masterpiece. Your canvas awaits: just add water.

Hi, my son loves Lush bath bombs they have helped him to relax during this very uncertain times. However we are worried about the glitter that is in them ending up in the sea and destroying wildlife???

I would love to buy a monthly subscription box of different bath products (oils, bars and bombs) would this be something you could do in the future?

I crumble the balls into large pieces then use a piece to rub against my skin as a cleanser. The smell is heavenly and the oils leave my skin feeling so soft. Beautiful product!

I want to buy a jelly bomb but I'm curious as to what they do to the bath water and how it goes down the drain at the end of the bath because if it turns into jelly as I know it then it wouldn't go down the drain :)

Search "lush jelly bomb" on youtube. There's a youtuber called xpurr. She made a video about each jelly bomb. You can see what they look like in the bath and how it goes down the drain.
