Lush - Ladybird/Ladybug, bubble bar, review (+ curious Valentine's day limited edition bath products worth to be seen)

What can be sweet and romantic on Valentine's Day for single people
A bubbly splash in the tub with Labybird (Ladybug) or another sugary new bath product by Lush Cosmetics.

Labybird, called Ladybug in the US, is a Lush bubble bar, a solid soap that can be crumbled under warm running water.
I usually match a bubble bar with my current creamy bath foam, that’s to say: I use a bubble bar simply for its bubble cloud, colour and scent. 
Lush fans all over the world go even further and run free on creativity: they mix and match portions of Lush bubble bars, bath bombs, drops of shower gels, a bit of bath melt and share their magic potions online.

Back to Ladybird...

THE PRODUCT: packaging and scent
Zero packaging, all product! This bubble bar comes in the shape of a gigantic purple and red ladybug and it’s bigger than the palm of my hand!
It’s so big that can be divided into two or three parts, that are two or three baths, and it easily crumbles and bubbles. 

What’s the most striking feature, what remains impressed in my mind, is Ladybird’s scent: sweet, floral and fresh. It’s such an energising and particular mix that’s vaguely reminiscent of energy drinks.
Its scent is floral and minty, it pinches my nose. It’s secret is geranium and peppermint oils...
It tinges the water of an orange-y red shade and creates enough bubbles, it leaves the skin soft but not for a long time.

it can be portioned and used for more baths,
it’s cruelty-free

overwhelming scent,
It has a high price (outside the UK)

Lush Cosmetics Ladybird/Ladybug, bubble bar, review by Valentina Chirico

I think Ladybird is fun and I love immersing myself in that colourful waters but its scent isn’t my cup of tea.
I’m not a romantic girl and I prefer other kinds of scents: sweet but warm, totally spicy or fruity (if particular). I’m open to experiments and to start “sensory adventures” in unusual combinations of note like those of Lord of Misrule shower cream (Vanilla+Patchouli+Black Pepper) and Don’t Rain On My Parade shower gel (Vanilla+Violet+Ylang Ylang+Sandalwood), but floral and sweet olfactory notes aren’t for me.

Ladybird/Ladybug is a limited edition bubble bar and is now available online and Lush shops worldwide. Prices vary depending on your country: it costs 3.95£ in the UK, 6.95$ in the US, 5,95€ circa in Europe.

If I could go to the closest Lush shop I would go to know some Valentine’s day specials. Not for necessities but for a pure matter of curiosity: Kiss Me Quick, a paper soap like Asian ones, and the luxury bath melt Two Hearts Beating As One for its creative shape (Valentine's day special bath and body products for US and the UK).

I had two ladybugs, I gave one away to my work pal... I love giving something that can bring happiness and a smile, don't you?
Ladybird... would I recommend it? Sincerely, it depends on you: I find it pricey and I’d suggest to personally take a sniff to discover your "own 
compatibility with Miss Ladybird".
