Lush Temple of Truth
Advantages: Relaxing, leaves skin soft, subtle smell, smells lovely.
Disadvantages: Price, you can only get it from the Retro section of Lush's website and not in the shops.
Lush Temple of Truth is one of Lush's bubble bars. However, it's not one you'll find in their shops, instead this is one you can only find in the Retro section of their website. The one shown in Dooyoo's picture of the item is a cyan (blue) colour, however the product is actually white (though it is the same shape).
This bubble bar contains sandalwood oil, guiacwood oil and rosewood oil which are supposed to keep you relaxed and give you a clear mind. So why the name? Well, apparently your brightest thoughts and come to you when you're completely relaxed. I agree with what Lush say here because I often have ideas while having a relaxing bath or while snugged up in my duvet in bed. The combined smell of the oils seems to give a lovely baby powder scent with a hint of candy. However, it's a subtle smell and in no way over-powering, in keeping with its relaxing properties.
I usually like to cut my Lush bubble bars in to 2 or 3 pieces to make them last longer, but due to its shape this isn't the easiest bubble bar to cut. Still, I just about managed to cut the Lush Temple of Truth bubble bar in half and crumble the one half under the running water in the bath. As soon as I dropped it in, the bubbles immediately started to appear. By the time the water had finished running, there were plenty of bubbles in the bath and I'm sure the bath would have been over-flowing with bubbles if I had crumbled the whole bubble bar in! Even before I climbed into the bath I could still smell the lovely subtle scent in the room.
Once sat in the bath water, I found the water nice & soft and the bubbles nice & fluffy. I also noticed that the water was cloudy white instead of being clear. The only problem I noticed was that some crumbs of the bubble bar hadn't quite dissolved properly, but a few swishes and a rub of the crumbs made them dissolve. Anyway, I loved the subtle candy-like, baby powder scent and certainly found my Lush bath very relaxing.
After my lovely bath, I found my skin still nice & soft and with a subtle hint of the Lush Temple of Truth scent.
I must say that I love this bubble bar! However, this is a slight drawback... Because it is now a part of Lush's Retro selection of products, it is one of their most expensive bubble bars at £3.55 for one 100g bar. So this isn't going to be the cheapest bath you'll ever have, but it will be one (two if you can cut it in half) of the most relaxing and Lush-ious baths you ever have! I'll definitely be buying this again when I make my next order through the Lush website (www.lush.co.uk).
Summary: One relaxing bubble bar from Lush.
