Lush bath melts and oils are still a fairly uncharted territory for me, I need help getting in and out of the bath because of my bad joints and adding something that could potentially make the bath more slippery is an accident waiting to happen.
I have however been getting on fine with the bath bombs that have half of them dipped in oil; The Roller, Never Mind the Ballistics and Over and Over have actually become some of my favourite Lush products. Using those 3 bath bombs gave me the confidence to start trying Lush bath melts and so far I’ve been perfectly safe in the capable hands of my bath!
The Two Hearts Beating as One Bath Melt is brand new for 2017. It is a part of the amazing Valentine’s Day range this year and has proven very popular. If you look at the photos of the bath melt above you can see that it is made of 2 heart shaped melts, one pink and one orange.
They are designed to lock together as one. Having it like this is however completely up to you. I know some people have used the pink and orange bits separately over 2 baths instead. I of course use them both at the same time because you only live once. 😛
What first surprised me is how ungreasy it was. You’d expect a bath melt of its size to make you slip around like a seal on ice but it wasn’t like that at all. It was the perfect quantity. My skin felt moisturised but not too over moisturised, it was a lot better than I had expected.
Two Hearts Beating as One has a floral and sweet fragrance, the ylang ylang, apricot and rose oils are probably the most noticeable of its ingredients scent wise.
Like the Butterball bath bomb, Two Hearts Beating as One is best used in a hot as you can stand it bath. Once put in the bath water the Two Hearts bath melt floats, dancing around slowly creating pink and orange swirls of oil.
My Winter battered skin was very pleased with this bath melt. It left my skin feeling soft and silky smooth from top to toe. I really wasn’t expecting myself to like this bath melt as much as I did. I will be buying a couple more before the Valentine season is over.
A trick I have learnt about the oilier bath products from Lush is to always have a bottle of Fairy Liquid near by, a quick squidge of that on a sponge wipes any excess oil away with minimum effort. It’s the perfect solution for those that moan they don’t want to scrub out a bath straight after using it.
Some people would be really pleased to hear my fairy liquid trick, especially those sitting on the fence about becoming a Lushie so I thought I’d add it to this review.
A quick wipe around the tub before you get out helps so much, I always recommend giving the bath tub a quick hose down after you use it anyway, (Lush bath or not) I just like to rinse away the dead skin cells left behind after a bath. Why would you want them hanging around?! I am however a clean freak so I know not everyone does this after every bath. I honestly had no problems with this particular product mess wise though. I never have with Lush.
