Lush Harajuku Releases 101 Old And New Exclusive Bubble Bars
Until now, Lush Harajuku was a bath bomb exclusive store. As of December 2019, they are mixing things up by adding 101 Harajuku exclusive bubble baths to the mix.
Lush Harajuku Bath Bomb store opened its doors a little bit over a year ago. They delivered a small batch of new Harajuku bath bombs to the store, including an adorable Godzilla and a temple bath bomb.
Visitors can also enjoy the Lush Shinjuku megastore, but the Harajuku location still offers a one-of-a-kind experience for customers. As of today, December 6, 2019 they will carry 101 new and exclusive bubble bars only available at Lush Harajuku. The exclusive bubble bars will include old favorites as well as many new inventions.
What is a Bubble Bar?
Lush bubble bars are a unique way to enjoy a bubble bath. There are two kinds: bubble bars, and reusable bubble bars. Both can be used for multiple baths which makes them very budget-friendly.
The normal bubble bars can be used as a whole or by breaking off pieces for multiple baths. Crumble the desired amount with your hands under the running water. Swish the water around for extra bubbles.
The reusable bubble bar, in this article also referred to as bubble stick and bubble bottle, is harder and can be directly held under the water stream until you have the desired amount of scent, color, and bubbles. After use, set it aside to dry.
