Today I have a review of Lush's Lonely Heart bubble bar, which is a Valentine's Day 2015 limited edition release.
This gorgeous bar was very kindly sent to me for review.
(Isn't it adorable?!!?)
Here is what Lush.ca has to say about it:
"A heart full of Love
Crumble this heart under running water and it may just make your heart race a little. Its golden shimmer and vibrant red center will turn your bath water into a lascivious haven of soft bubbles. It features the same scent as our bygone Love perfume – a lemongrass, bergamot, jasmine and ylang ylang blend that will leave your soft skin smelling oh-so-irresistible.
- Shim shimmer: The gold glimmer luster is safe for the environment.
- Oh, you so corny! We added a touch of corn flour to this one to keep skin soft in and out of the tub.
- Love at first smell: This bar’s scent will fill your heart (and your nose) with Love…literally."

It has a delightful fragrance!! I didn't realise that it is a fragrance that they had before, called Love. It's hard for me to place it, but I do get a citrus-fruity-floral scent when I smell it. With the bergamot and lemongrass mixed with the rose, ylang ylang, and jasmine, you get a unique but really pleasant mix. I think it is very interesting that there is oak moss extract in there as well.
I used half a bar for my bath, as I like making at least two baths out of Lush products when I can.
The water was a clear reddish pink hue, with fine gold shimmer flecks floating around, that disappeared and reappeared when they caught the light.
There weren't as many bubbles as with some other bubble bars I've tried, but again I used only half of the bar and the bar itself is smaller than bubble bars like Blue Skies and the Comforter.
I took photos at the half-way point to show how intense the colour would be at full strength.
My skin smelled absolutely lovely afterwards. Sadly I had to take a rather short bath, but it was luxurious and very relaxing, and I highly recommend this as a treat for yourself or someone you care about.
Also it is so cuuuute, being a sparkly heart, and all. XD
Another hit from Lush! :D
I will be back soon with more reviews of the Valentine's Day line! :D
Until then, take care and have a wonderful day!
