I initially bought this bubble bar for myself because it made me smile. I thought it looked like a piece of candy, so I figured that it would be a fun little treat for myself. I did like it a lot, but I found that I didn't use it very much because it wasn't really practical for an everyday thing. I would definitely prefer to just stick to my usual soap or shower gel. However, this would make a really cute gift for someone, especially for a kid. I would definitely recommend this as a stocking stuffer or part of a gift basket! Effectiveness This works pretty well, though I felt that it was really more just for fun than something that would be a terribly effective way to wash in the bath or shower. It works well as a fun little pick-me-up and it does feel pretty good, it just didn't exactly clean the way you might expect a bath product to do. Scent I really liked the scent of this bubble bar! It was sweet and fun.
