I am always super excited at the prospect of adding another bubbleroon to my Lush collection. As great as the 3 standard ones that are available all year through are, there is always room for more! 😉

Heart Throb’s size is in consistency with the other bubbleroons, it does however stand out from the crowd because of its unique shape. Made up of 2 deep-red hearts that are fused together with gold-glitter tinted cream, it is very easy on the eye. Putting Heart Throb against all of the other bubble bar products I can totally see why Heart Throb has proven to be so popular.
When I first started my Lush journey I on instinct went straight for the bubble bars, not having much money for luxuries meant that the idea of a product that could be used on more than one occasion was ideal.
Many people use the whole of a bubbleroon for just one big, bubbly bath. My personal preference is to however break them in half. I have previously tried to break them into 3 or 4 pieces to spread out over several baths, this however made me feel like there just wasn’t enough product to go around. After a lot of experimental-bath time trial and errors, I have come to the conclusion that using the whole bubbleroon for just one bath although fantastic scent wise, provides you with more bubbles than you actually need – that is if you don’t mind attending foam parties and being the only one invited… Just half of a bubbleroon will guarantee you mounds and mounds of beautiful white bubbles and silky-smooth, tinted water that hydrates and soothes your skin.
The scent of the Heart Throb Bubbleroon is not one I am very familiar with, this is a completely new scent for me. Dominated by vanilla, geranium and lemon oil it is a soft, fairly sweet, musky scent with a floral undertone, I am literally useless at describing scents so I won’t make a fool of myself by trying to put it into any more words. Let’s just say that it is a very delicate and pleasant scent. 😉
Overall I think the Heart Throb Bubbleroon is a fantastic addition to the Oxford Street Exclusive Lush Valentine’s line.
All though Heart Throb has well and truly impressed me, my favourite bubbleroon is still Yuzu and Cocoa. Never-the-less Heart Throb is a very welcome ingredient for some of the bath cocktails that I have planned in my future.
What did you guys think of it? 🙂
