The Heart Beat Bath Bomb is a brand new release from Lush’s 2021 Valentine’s Day line. Lush have taken inspiration for the Heart Beat bath bombs design from the much loved, Christmas-time-classic, the Shoot for the Stars bath bomb.
Just like the Shoot for the Stars bath bomb the Heart Beat bath bomb has 3, shimmery-gold bath melts set in its side, the difference being that they are heart shaped instead of stars! (see photos above and below).
You may recognise the Heart Beat bath bombs scent as it features in several other much-loved Lush products, Rose Jam shower gel being the first product that springs to my-mind that is (at the time of writing this review) currently available to purchase too.
The Heart Beat bath bomb contains a long list of lovey-dovey floral ingredients; there’s rose absolute, rose oil and geranium oil. There is also some lemon and almond oil mixed in alongside an impressive amount of popping candy.
The heart shaped melts are made of organic cocoa butter and much like the Butterball bath bomb it is recommended that you use the Heart Beat bath bomb in a hot as you can stand it bath so that your skin can get the full benefits from the super-hydrating, heart shaped bath melts.
My very first experience with the Rose Jam scent was a surprise as, as soon as I had heard its name I ignorantly assumed that it would be an older ladies fragrance, it is however far from it. It is a rose-dominated-scent but the lemon oil in it gives it a sweet and zingy edge making it highly desirable to everyone, young or old.
As soon as the Heart Beat bath bomb comes into contact with your bath water you are greeted with a fierce hiss of fizzy, dark-pink bubbles. It slowly dances around the waters-surface, fizzing away, spreading small amounts of shimmer from the gold bath melts as it fills your bathroom with its inviting and warm Rose Jam scent.
Once Heart Beat is in the water my nose can’t help but pick out a candy-like fragrance coming from it. I’m wondering if this could maybe be from the popping candy that is in it as it’s not something I have noticed with any other Rose Jam scented product before…
Heart Beat is a fairly slow fizzer, by the time the popping candy started to do its thing I had completely forgotten it was even inside of the bath bomb. As always the popping candy puts on a snap, crackle and popping bath-time-show that you’d expect only from the likes of a fireworks display.
As I said earlier the Heart Beat bath bomb is best enjoyed in a hot as you can stand it bath as this melts down the heart-shaped-bath-melts into an oil making it one of Lush’s most hydrating bath bombs. I’m not a huge fan of the super hydrating bath bombs as I’m not very steady on my feet and generally have quite oily skin to start with but using one every now and again is quite the treat.
Annoyingly I do have to either hose myself down or dab off the excess oil with a towel once I am out of the bath, the Rose Jam scent however stays on your skin so you’re not losing the fragrance just the excess oils.
The bath-tub-clean-up isn’t too bad either, I run a wet (with hot water) sponge with a dab of shower gel over the bath and the oil does rinse away easily. Quite often I don’t need to do this with Lush bath bombs but Heart Beat does require a tiny bit of clean up. – Overall I do however really like the Heart Beat bath bomb and recommend that you try it at least once before the Valentine’s day stock retires for another year. 😊❤️
