Review: Lush Heartbeat Bath Bomb
The Valentine’s Day collection launched and I couldn’t be more excited. The Valentine’s Day range has always been a huge favorite here, because I love the pink, lovely, cute products that come with it. Heartbeat was love at first sight — gorgeous pink with golden, glittery chunks of cocoa butter shaped like a heart. It could’ve smelled like a trash can — I’d still buy it. Today I’m throwing this cutie into the tub, so if you’re wondering how that looks like, make sure you keep on reading.

Lush Heartbeat Bath Bomb costs £5.95 / $8.45 / €7,50 and is part of the Valentine’s Day range. This year’s range exists of some new bath bombs, like Heartbeat. It’s a bright pink bath bomb with three chunks of cocoa butter, covered in glitters. (Plastic-free, of course) The bath bomb smells like Rose Jam, which is a delicate, luxurious, amazing rose scent. It’s the best rose scented you’ll ever smell. It’s sweet and floral, simply elegant. The bath bomb also contains popping candy, which I think is a nice addition. The cocoa butter, just like Shoot for the Stars, make the skin soft and hydrated afterwards. I just hope it doesn’t make the bath slippery.
What do I think?
The bath bomb starts with creating a ring of colored foam around the bath bomb. When I release it, it starts spinning like crazy, while gradually coloring the water into a raspberry red shade. There’s golden lustre floating in the water and also trails of glitters on the surface. A truly lovely sight to see. It’s a pretty slow fizzer — after it’s done spinning through the bath, it slowly fizzes till there’s nothing left. The hot water melted the cocoa butter chunks, creating a silky soft water, packed with golden lustre and a raspberry red shade. To finish off, there’s a subtle Rose Jam scent lingering in the bathroom.
After bathing in this luxurious bath, I was left with both a tub full of golden glitter and a skin that was definitely more hydrated than before. I could easily wash away the glitter residue, and I was surprised to see I wasn’t as sparkly as I thought I would. There’s some glitters here and there, but nothing too severe. All in all I really enjoyed this bath bomb! Would I buy more? No, but I am glad I’ve bought two, so I can enjoy it once more.
