Lush know that their customers love The Comforter scent. When The Comforter Shower Cream was discontinued a while back, there was an outcry of disappointed fans feeling like Lush had just removed one of their best products from sale, and if you looked at how popular it was, you’d be surprised too. Since then, Lush haven’t really had anything for the shower scented with the same, blackcurrant scent, until now.
Designed to look like a paper ramekin, Comfort Zone is definitely a pretty product to look at. Like all shower bombs, it’s designed to be used just once, just like how a bath bomb is only designed for one bath. You simply hold it under the running water, and it’ll foam up with a soft and creamy mousse, which you then use to wash yourself with.
The foam that shower bombs produce is gorgeously soft due to both Potato Starch and seaweed-derived Sodium Alginate which really soften the skin. Also the black bits you can see embedded into this one are actually Chia Seeds, which produce a softening mucilage when soaked in water and offer a gentle and light exfoliation as well.
As I mentioned, Comfort Zone smells just like the scent family known as The Comforter which I often describe as being like sweet blackcurrant squash. I’d say it’s a little fruiter than The Comforter Bubble Bar but its very potent and The Comforter fans will definitely be rejoicing over it. The scent is made up of Cassis (Blackcurrant), along with Bergamot and Cypress and is a sweet and fruity fragrance. To be honest, I find the scent a little sickly but a great deal of people love how cosy it makes them feel. On the skin, both Blackcurrant and Bergamot are full of Vitamin C, brightening and refreshing the skin, whilst Cypress is topically soothing.
Comfort Zone further contains Fresh Raspberries, which isn’t usually something you’d find in a product bearing The Comforter scent but Lush have added it to help sweeten the aroma and to further refresh the skin.
Often after a shower bomb foams for the first time after coming into contact with the water, they don’t foam as much the next time, so I’ve started doing something slightly different and I actually crush them into my hands as they get wet. I’ve found you get a lot more of a lather doing it this way which obviously means more for you to use. Plus, it’s a lot easier, just be careful not to lose any down the plughole. I used to find that as the product got smaller, you’d be left with this hard lump, but not any longer! My skin felt so soft after using this and I’d say that that’s the best thing about a shower bomb really, they make you feel so smooth!
Although the shower bomb itself smells fairly strong, I can’t say it retains its strength on your skin after. It has lingered very subtly but nothing like I expected it to be which is a real shame. Nonetheless, Comfort Zone is a definite must try for all you fans of its fruity sweet scent out there.
