If you don't have a boyfriend or girlfriend, husband or wife at Valentine's Day then you could possibly feel a bit down around February the 14th, where everything is either pink or red and covered with hearts. Or, like me, you could be excited about the upcoming Valentine's Day collection from Lush. With so many Limited Edition products released recently to celebrate Valentine's Day, I could happily have spent a small fortune on pink and heart shaped body products so I tried my hardest to use my self-control, although I can't promise that I won't be going back for a Unicorn Horn Bubble Bar or two....
About the Lush Cupid Bath Bomb:
"Be still your beating heart with an opulent bathtime bouquet of calming rose and bergamot. This fantastically floral fizzer is full of uplifting bergamot, rose and violet leaf absolute, and its subtle sweetness is sure to melt your heart as it melts into your bathwater."
The Lush Cupid Bath Bomb smells absolutely incredible. It smells really sweet with the rose petal powder, the violet leaf absolute and with the persian lime oil, almost making the bath bomb smell like a Refreshers sweet or a nostalgic Parma Violet. I don't usually enjoy really sweet scents but I absolutely adore this and I would go as far to say that if you could bottle Valentine's Day up as a fragrance then it would probably smell like this.
The Lush Cupid Bath Bomb is, naturally, heart shaped with an arrow bursting through it, just like a Cupid's bow. In comparison to other Lush Bath Bombs, Cupid is slightly smaller so it is only destined for one use, although if you manage to get two uses out of a Bath Bomb then wow, well done you. I love the Intergalactic Bath Bomb but at £4.25, I try not to buy it too often as it is an expensive product to watch float down the drain. If I could easily chop it up for a few uses without the use of a power tool then I would happily do so but as the Cupid Bath Bomb is really reasonable in price, I don't mind buying a couple.
When dipped in hot water or run under a hot tap, the middle fizzes out white foam whereas the arrow fizzes out a hot pink. Everything twirls and floats around nicely in the bath and slowly a white foam is formed, leaving the bath water a very mild shade of pink but nothing too extravagant or out of the ordinary happens in terms of performance. For me, the best part of this bath bomb is the smell. It smells so sweet and so much of old school, nostalgic childhood sweets, it instantly brings back some old memories.
If you pop into a Lush store before Valentine's Day, I would definitely recommend you pick one or two of these Cupid Bath Bombs up. It may not be a firework display in the bath tub but the smell alone is worth a purchase!
