Lush Heart Throb Bubble Bar is just what you want from a Valentine's Day product, unabashedly kitsch, heart shaped and floral scented - dusted with just the right amount of gold glitter. Cupid himself would be proud!
At first I did not care for the fragrance of Lush Heart Throb deeming it to be a little too powdery for my personal taste but it seems to liven up somewhat when added to water. It is altogether a light floral scent with notes of Frangipani and Geranium. In some senses it reminds me of baby lotion - soft, comforting and familiar making it perfect for an relaxing evening dip. This particular bubble bar is loaded with shea butter and is one of the few bubble bars that truly leaves my skin feeling soft, nourished and hydrated from a simple bath - not many products can say that.
Much like I have in the past, I recommend halving this bubble bar before use. I personally only use a quarter per bath and find it more than scents the bath water (and room) as well as providing oddles of soft, soapy bubbles. As you can probably imagine this tints the water pink and does leave behind a coating of glitter both on the bottom of the bath and the skin, it really isn't anything a quick hose down with a shower can't solve and let's face it who doesn't like a little sparkle in their life.
