Lush Love Locket ReviewFriday, January 31, 2014
Good morning, dear readers! :D
To continue with the Lush Valentine's Day reviews, I have another review for you today, this time of the new Love Locket bath bomb.
This was kindly sent to me for review :'D.
AHHhhhh... look at how cute that is!! :'D The look reminds me of Kingdom Hearts (fantastic game!).
Here is the Lush description:
"Set hearts aflutter!
What’s inside this locket? You’ll need to break this heart-shaped bomb in half to find out! Use each half and the center for three separate baths (each piece is big enough to stand on its own), or sink in with the whole thing all at once. The outside layer is speckled with paper hearts that will float out to the surface of the pink water, and the hidden center releases a smattering of shiny red agar seaweed hearts to create a spectacular bath time display. The sensual blend of vanilla, jasmine and neroli essential oils top off the luxurious and indulgent experience." - lush.ca
This is one MASSIVE bath bomb! As they suggest, you can easily get three baths out of this one.
Here is what it looks like broken up:
And here is the heart-of-the-heart, complete with adorable agar hearts for decoration:
Here is the list of ingredients:
Sodium Bicarbonate , Citric Acid , Fragrance , Jasmine Absolute (Jasminum grandiflorum) , Fair Trade Vanilla Absolute (Vanilla Planifolia) , Neroli Oil (Citrus Aurantium amara) , Gardenia Extract (Gardenia jasminoides) , *Eugenol , Geraniol , Methyl Ionone ,*Linalool , *Limonene , D&C Red No. 33 , D&C Red No. 27 , Pink Heart Confetti , Red Edible Hearts (Hydroxy propyl methyl cellulose (HPMC), Glycerine, Gum Arabic, Sodium carboxy methyl cellulose, FD&C Red 40)
Here is what I used for my bath (about 1/3rd of the bath bomb). I only used part of the outer pink shell, so you won't see the agar hearts in this review:
And here we goooo...
Now this is a *very* fast bath bomb, so it fizzes away really quickly.
EEEE!!! Look at all of those cute paper hearts! :'D
It's like a pink wave washing over my bathwater:
And here it is, before completely mixing in (so it is still more pink where I placed it in the bath.):
Okay, this is wonderful!!! :D
Because the hearts are made out of paper (these hearts, anyway ;)), they last for the entire bath!
I think that this is what the Queen of Hearts would bathe in, if she weren't evil. Because, being evil, she would probably bathe in a bath with real hearts and blood for water. But! Enough of that!
This is a good Queen of Hearts bath, and it will make you feel like one too! :)
I have fallen hard for this bath bomb, which makes me both a bit giddy and a bit sad, because this is a limited edition product.
It has a really nice scent, which is not overpowering, and very relaxing. :D I cannot decipher the exact notes, even though they list them on their web page. It is like a lovely floral bouquet, but I can't pick out the individual scents. I think that the added vanilla tones down the floral aspect, so it isn't just flower notes, but an interesting combination. I can't pick out the vanilla by itself, because everything blends together in a really lovely way.
Would I recommend this? Yes!! Yes yes omg yes. It is good for three baths, makes you feel like a queen, and isn't overpowering at all so you don't have to worry about that. You also don't have to worry about the fragrance clashing with perfume or cologne, because I only detect a little bit of the fragrance left on my skin after my bath.
I used this with the Prince Charming shower gel, and my skin feels really lovely and soft! :D
I would love to get about 20 of these, but I may have to settle for 1 or 2 more ;).
I really hope that this makes a return next year!!! :D
If you try only two products from Lush's Valentine's Day range, I really recommend this and the Neon Love soap. NEED...MORE...
Have a super amazing day! :D
