Review: Lush Love Locket Bath Bomb


Hey lovelies! Today I am going to tell you what I thought of Lush's Love Locket Bath Bomb! This is the third and last Valentine's product I'll be reviewing - but if you missed the last two reviews you can check them out here (floating flower) and here (unicorn horn). I have to say that I was really reluctant to buy this (even though I love Lush) because 1) I'm single and heartbroken (so a bit bitter about Valentine's) and 2) the price - £6.95! But I still ended up buying it anyway - because I was too curious not to. 

What I really love about this bath bomb is the concept. The bath bomb is a 'locket' with the surprise of another bath bomb hidden inside that you can reveal by breaking the bomb in two. In reality though, breaking open this bath bomb was really hard to do. I ended up breaking it open with a blunt metal object (that really makes me sound like some sort of bath bomb murderer) and eventually opening it but it took forever. For some reason I'd thought it would just break open effortlessly, how wrong was I? Inside the bath bomb is a cute little heart but I was a bit disappointed it wasn't more exciting - like a deeper red colour or a yellow. You can in theory use this bath bomb for three baths, but I ended up throwing it all into one bath, starting with the heart in the middle. 




I'm a bit on the fence about what I think about this bath bomb. It turns your bath a pretty pink/red colour with cute little confetti hearts and a lovely sweet fragrance. However, I felt like I really wanted more of a surprise from this one, like with Golden Wonder, but was left feeling disappointed when I got exactly what I expected. That said if you're looking to have a cute romantic bath with your S.O or your own single pamper night - this is probably perfect. I just feel like there should have been a bit more of a surprise - as that's what I really love about Lush. 




The verdict? I do love the concept of this and the scent (it smells like sherbet to me) but I felt like I wanted more from it considering the price, even if you can split it into three baths! That said, if you want a lovely simple, pretty bath this Valentine's then this is perfect!

Thank you for reading lovelies! Did you buy any of Lush's Valentine's Day Collection? Let me know in the comment section below!

  1. I didn't buy any of Lush's Valentines products, I sort of wish I did but at the same time I don't feel like I'm missing out tooo much. That said I would probably love the smell of everything if I wasn't trying to ban myself from going in there!

  4. LMAO @ bath bomb murderer! That really got me laughing out loud! As you know I am still not 100% sold about Lush bath bombs yet but maybe because I am old and have to clean the darn bathtub afterwards. Now if my husband was the one cleaning it....maybe I'll love it even more? LOL!

    1. Haha I think I'm technically a Bath Bomb serial killer LOL. Yeah it's annoying how some leave a mark on the tub! The ones that are the worse are the ones with flower petals - cleaning those up are a nightmare!

  9. I love the fact that this has another bath bomb inside! It's a shame that it was so hard to break though! This is quite expensive but I think it looks like another great Lush product :) x

  14. This is so cute, a little pricey but worth it anyway. I haven't had a lush bath bomb in ages!

  15. I don't think we have Lush here :( but that looks like something I'd definitely want to try out. I don't take baths that often but I'd use to for special occasions/cosy nights in.

  16. That's the main reason I didn't get this cause it's too expensive for what it is really!

  18. I've not had a bath bomb in ages either, and I'm absolutely SHOCKED at that price. Still, the concept is kind of neat, and the little confetti hearts ARE adorable... I am sure I'll continue to empty my wallet into LUSH's pocket in years to come....

  20. I haven't bought any of the Lush valentines products this year, but I'm pleasantly surprised by this one! I thought it would be a tad plain and boring, but it looks amazing! And I would never of guessed about having another bath bomb inside, I would of just ended up chucking the whole thing in haha.
