Lush’s Love Locket Bath Bomb is one of the biggest bath bombs I have ever seen and probably the heaviest too! At a hefty £6.95 this is without a doubt the most expensive bath bomb I have bought from Lush but after reading many reviews online, I just knew I had to give it a go and see what the fuss was about – especially as this bath bomb is part of Lush’s Valentines collection so will not be around for long. The bath bomb itself is a bright baby pink with a carved yellow centre and is fairly hollow, I mean you shake it and you can feel the extra bath bomb wiggling around inside. The next thing you will notice about this bath bomb is the scent – a blend of vanilla, jasmine and neroli essential oils, very sensual and feminine yet calming and very relaxing (I almost fell asleep in the bath).
Lush say after splitting in half you can use each piece and the centre in three separate baths, however I found the smaller inner bomb to be a bit disappointing on its own so I popped in the back of the bath bomb as well! Both pieces reacted very quickly in the bath tub fizzing around with streams of pink coming out and the amazing sensual scent getting stronger and stronger. The water was left a gorgeous barbie pink colour with paper and seaweed hearts floating around and a slight lush sparkle.
The stand out pro of this bath bomb is the scent as I found it so relaxing and warming however, I wouldn’t repurchase this in a hurry as I found my excitement was cut short with how fast this bath bomb dissolves in the water. I feel you would get the best results just chucking the whole bath bomb in but for £7 thats quite an expensive bath, especially if you use bath bombs all the time. I also found this didn’t leave my skin particularly soft or smooth as many other bath bombs have done. However if your spending Valentines day alone this year this is the perfect treat, just add a glass of vino and Cosmo and your set for the night. With the uplifting scent and stunning pinky water this is definitely one for the girly girls. Unfortunately this is sold out online but if you pop into your local store you might still be able to snap one up before they disappear!
