Lover Lamp

   Have the hots for anyone this Valentine's Day? Whether the answer is yes, or no, you can fall head-over-heels for Lover Lamp bath bomb without any heartache!
   (Well, unless you get quite emotional when you've run out of this lovely fizzer.)
   Before even using this bath bomb, the scent alone was enough to instantly have me order several more to stash throughout the year... Let's see if Lover Lamp is the one for you!

"Heart-crossed lovers."
   When Lover Lamp bath bomb arrived along with some other LUSH UK goodies, I was so excited to see how much it smelled like a chocolate orange (because who doesn't enjoy those delicious holiday treats)... I picked up this cute, creamy white bath bomb to notice it was a bit dusty but the decorative hearts were fully intact, peaking out from the surface.
   Immediately I could smell the very soft and true scent of fair trade vanilla absolute, and right after that the hints of Brazilian orange oil peaked through... From the scent, even not knowing the ingredients, it was easy to tell this bomb had cocoa butter (fair trade organic) somewhere in it (the adorable hearts).

   This is a very quick fizzer, but that never deters me if it is a genuinely good product... The water turns so creamy you would think there was powdered milk in the bomb! I'm a huge fan of this aesthetic and  the way it makes my skin feel... The large butter hearts release and melt very slowly, revealing gold glimmer lustre within them (not so much that this bath was sparkly). Once a few layers had dissolved, more hearts were released from the bomb - except these were extra tiny and extra adorable... The scent of vanilla mixed with the now melting cocoa butter hearts to create a milk chocolate note that enhanced the orange oil to perfectly create the scent of the chocolate orange treats that are so enjoyed during the Christmas season.
   Lover Lamp left my skin feeling wonderfully soft and beautifully, but gently, scented of vanilla... This was a nice bath for calming down (especially for those of us who have a hard time with lavender or mint)... Although this fizzer stood perfectly well on its own, I can easily see it paired with a numerous amount of products; especially lotions to bring out the Brazilian orange oil!

   I give Lover Lamp bath bomb a 4.5/5 and cannot wait until the extras that I ordered arrive! Whether you're sharing this bath with a loved one, or loving on yourself, this LUSH Valentine's exclusive is definitely one to give a try - before they're all gone.
   (Side note: I did not have any bath residue, but I can see the melted cocoa butter hearts sticking to the side of the tub if your bath water isn't hot enough.)
