I think it’s safe to say that Lushies all across the U.S. and Canada were a little disappointed in this year’s Valentine’s Day range. There were so many favorites from last year that were cut, like the Floating Flower bath bomb and Heart Throb bubbleroon. You could practically hear the hearts breaking across the country over the loss of the Love Locket bath bomb! 😦 However, even with the smaller line-up, Lush really outdid themselves. After viewing all the products at my local store, from the Kiss lip balm to the majestic Unicorn Horn bubble bar, this soap was the star of the show.
Roses All The Way is an adorable heart-shaped bar of soap with a rosey pattern. Each bar is handpainted a pinky-red shade, an homage to The Queen of Hearts from Alice in Wonderland. Now they could’ve just sold the little rose soaps by themselves, but since this is Lush we’re talking about, of course they had to go and make this product even cuter. In the shops, you’ll find these sitting on top of a heart shaped piece of green soap, to make it appear as though you’re picking a rose right off the bush! That display really sold me on picking one of these up.
Sharing the same fragrance as the Rosy Cheeks fresh face mask, Roses All The Way has a powdery rose scent. It’s nice and light, on the fresher side of most floral fragrances. Fresh rose infusion, rose oil, and rose syrup all combine to create this wonderful soap.
While this lathered well and was easy to use, the color does fade to a light baby pink. Still beautiful of course, just something to be aware of. I also found that this dried out my skin a bit, but it’s totally worth it. Just top it off with a nice lotion and you’re good! You can stop by your local shop and pick one out yourself or order online from the UK here and the US here. Each bar is $7.95 and well worth the value. Valentine’s Day may be tomorrow, but it’s never too late to stop and smell the roses!
