The Little Bubble Co. Review

In a previous post, I promised to share a product that I absolutely love and I said that it smelled good enough to eat, but it's definitely not edible. So please don't eat it or drink it  :-)

Here it is! It's a great line of products from The Little Bubble Co. They make these wonderful bath and shower gels that come in a variety of fragrances like: Coconut Creme, Strawberry Sundae, and Vanilla Biscuit. As you can see, I've been dipping into each variety, so the bottles aren't completely full. But fear not...when you purchase them they are full to the top :-)

Let me give you a bit of a backstory. Well, I was out one Saturday with Brit Boy and we were doing some shopping at Boots pharmacy. I was out of shower gel, so I headed over to the bath aisle of the shop. I usually use a few of the same brands all the time, but on this day something else caught my eye. I was instantly pulled in by the names of the different varieties.

I picked up the Vanilla Biscuit variety and took a sniff of the product. Wow! When I smelled it I was sold on the spot, so I decided to buy it and give it a try. Well, when I used it I knew that I had made an excellent purchase.

The gel lathers very well and gives a good fresh feeling of cleanliness. And the smell is truly divine! One day after I had used it, Brit Boy thought that I had been baking cookies or something because it smells so good :-) The smell reminds you of childhood...of warm vanilla cookies right out of the oven. At this point, I want to do a bit of transatlantic clarification for my readers outside of the UK. What we call a cookie back home in the USA is called a biscuit over here in the UK. But hey, whether you call it a cookie or a's all the same yumminess to me! ;-)

From the bottle: ' Why does the scent of vanilla fill me with childhood memories?'

After I tried out the Vanilla Biscuit gel, I was so in love with it that I decided to contact the company and tell them how much I loved it. They were so kind and gracious and sent me a couple of the other varieties to try out. So over the past several days I've been trying out the Coconut Creme and Strawberry Sundae varieties and I love them too.

From the bottle: ' The strawberry and the buttercup met in the garden and fell in love. That's sweet.'

All of the varieties that I have tried smell wonderful and work great! The Little Bubble Co. got the smell just right! I will say that the Vanilla Biscuit is my absolute favorite. The gels can be used in the bath or in the shower. I've only tried them in the shower, but then I'm more of a shower girl. The gels are long-lasting too...a little goes a long way, so they are very economical.

When I bought my first bottle it cost me only £2.49 British pounds/$3.86 US dollars for a 500ml/16.9 fl oz. bottle.

From the bottle: ' Take half a coconut and make sail on a lime blue sea.'

I love that the bottles are recyclable and The Little Bubble Co. incorporates this into their bottle design. On the front of the three bottles that I have there are phrases like:

'Recycle me and I may come back as your pillow'
'Recycle me and I may come back as a yoghurt tub'
'Recycle me and I may come back as a lunch box'

I like that they have fun with it and make you think about the good that can come out of recycling.

Also, here are some other facts about the bath and shower gels:
  • The fragrance is allergen free
  • The products are not tested on animals
  • And as they say on the bottle: 'Say hurray for NO PARABENS'
The Little Bubble Co. bath & shower gels are currently only available in the UK, but the company says that they are open to the possibility of expansion. I'll tell you this, they have a loyal customer in me because I simply love this product. It's been a long time since I found a product that I love so much, so I wanted to share my thoughts with you my dear readers :-) If you get the chance, please try the gels out...they're fab!

Check them out at their Facebook page here: or at your local retailer if you're in the UK.

I also want to thank Clare at The Little Bubble Co. for sending me some of the other products to try. I appreciate it so much!

*Disclosure: I bought one bottle and was sent two others in exchange for my review. However, as always, views are completely my own.
