Lovestruck Bubble Bar from Lush

lovestruck-bubble-barThe Lovestruck Bubble Bar from Lush’s 2017 Valentine’s line is most certainly a head turner. Its design is inspired by the heart-eyed iPhone emoji, (Unless you have been living under a rock) I’m sure you knew that already though…

Out of the three Valentine bubble bars of 2017, Lovestruck, Unicorn Horn and Ladybird it is unquestionably the most vibrant in colour.

Before I had read what ingredients Lovestruck had, I imagined it would be a similar scent to one of the bubble bars that were an Easter release last year, Tweet. Described as a bubble bar that is ‘refreshing and citrusy,’ I couldn’t wait to get it in the bath!

The first thing I noticed about the Lovestruck  bubble bar was its size. It’s not as big as a Brightside or Comforter, but it’s quite close. If you managed to get ahold of a Down the Rabbit bubble bar last year I’d say it’s a similar size to that although to me it feels more stocky.

The next thing that I noticed was that Lovestruck’s scent was the polar opposite of what I had expected it to be. The citrus element was barely noticeable, all I could really smell was the geranium oil in it.

In a way it reminded me of the Ladybird bubble bar a little but, with a splash of bitter lemon instead of the peppermint. I really wasn’t sure on its scent but I felt the same way about the Ladybird bubble bar last year so decided to give it a go.

A little of this bubble bar goes a long way, the smallest amount created mounds and mounds of fluffy white bubbles, the water was also silky smooth. It left my skin soft and hydrated. Which is everything I love in a bubble bar.

The water underneath the blanket of bubbles was also a beautiful and summery yellow. Unfortunately the scent seemed to intensify as the bath ran, this is fairly normal for a bubble bar from Lush and it isn’t a bad thing, unless you do not like the bubble bars scent…

I really couldn’t get on with the scent. Everything else about the bubble bar was however, perfect. For me the scent of a Lush product is really important to me so I won’t be getting the Lovestruck bubble bar again.

I feel its scent is a lot like the Ladybird bubble bar purely because of the strength of the geranium oils scent in both. The peppermint in Ladybird seems to mask the geranium oil to a point that I can like it, the lemon in Lovestruck however doesn’t cut it in the same way for my nose.

Personally I would have liked the Lovestruck bubble bar to not be packed with geranium oil as the Ladybird bubble bar has it in already, with them being in the same range I think I’d have preferred it if two products did not share such a dominantly scented ingredient. It’s a jackpot if you like the said scent. If you don’t however get on with it, it is quite the loss.

Geranium just isn’t a Valentine’s scent to me. By all means the Ladybird and Lovestruck bubble bars are totally different. Lovestruck has lemon in it while Ladybird has peppermint, it’s just the one mutual ingredient of geranium oil that trumps me.

It’s very rare for me to dislike a Lush product but Lovestruck sadly just wasn’t for me. I am however glad I tried it as it left my skin feeling fabulous and it is a really cute bubble bar.

I’m a top Lush geek and really enjoyed getting photos of it, it photographs brilliantly and with its cute and wacky, bold colours I can still see it being very popular for those that don’t mind its scent.

  1. I know exactly what you mean, I was so excited to try all the valentine’s range but this was just not the one for me and (I fear the backlash) prince charming both are not smells I’m a fan of.
