Unicorn Horn

   I'm a firm believer that, no matter our gender, we should all indulge in a fairytale once in a while... Some of us seek out Disney films for these stories, some of us look to anime for those adventures, and some of us go to LUSH Cosmetics around Valentine's Day!
   Why? Because once again Unicorn Horn Bubble Bar has reared its magnificent pastel swirls up in hopes of making us believe in a bit of magic during the month of love.

"They're real!"
   Unicorn Horn is an adorable product shaped as, well, a unicorn's horn! With pastel blue, pink, and yellow swirled together with silver lustre to help give this bubble bar some magic... Where does the rest come from? Its uplifting floral scent! I was very skeptical of this product last year and avoided it altogether because of my sensitivities to floral smells, but I took the plunge this year and snagged one with one of my LUSH Kitchen orders when it hit the UK site. I was surprised, to say the least, that my head didn't feel a single twinge when around or when using this bubble bar (especially since lavender is basically my mortal migraine enemy)... I noticed notes of neroli oil a lot more than I anticipated, and not as much ylang ylang as I had hoped for. The scent didn't evolve at all once in the water, which I always find disappointing, but it actually seemed to disappear completely after a few minutes.
   For the consistency of this product, it was shocking (in a good way) to see it produce classic LUSH bubbles; big, soft, and a little noisy. Not so many that I felt claustrophobic, but not so little that they were gone within ten minutes... I will say I was immensely sad that my tub water didn't change color whatsoever, even with using the entire cone. I'm a big fan of the more "plain" products that are meant to wow your mind/body with physical results, rather than putting on a show while they dissolve, but if you hand me a cone of lustre and pastels (with big media hype) I would expect a bit more color in my bath.
   It didn't do much at all for my skin or mood, other than leave some lustre here and there... And even with the amount of lustre in this product, there wasn't much left as residue in the tub afterwards. Which is always a plus in my book.
    Maybe it was my particular Unicorn Horn Bubble Bar that seemed more like a dud, but to me this is just a cutesy purchase to take some selfies with. I give it a 2/5, and probably won't repurchase if it returns next LUSH Valentine's... If you had a different experience with this bubble bar, let me know in the comments section!
