      I loved it

      When I made an order on lush.co.uk a while ago I decided to browse the retro section and within that I saw a bubble bar called two timing tart and immediately I knew I had to have it! The name just rang out to me straight away as well as the hot pink colours!

      As I mentioned the product is in the lush retro section and as such cannot be bought in the lush stores and you can only pick it up online. Due to the fact that it is in the retro section it is slightly more expensive than some of the other products and costs £3.05 for a 100g bar. For this I would say you can use it for a maximum of two baths by splitting the product in half so it is by no means a cheap bath but it is something of a treat for me so I like to look at it that way.

      The bubble bar is predominantly a hot pink colour with a white bumpy area in the middle. It is split easily in to two for you to enjoy two baths with it. I simply store the second half in the lush bag in my wardrobe to prevent it becoming damaged with the steam in the bathroom.

      When I crumbled the bubble bar under the running water in the bath immediately the water began to turn a lovely pink colour and the bubbles began to form. I was really pleased with the amount of bubbles that formed in the bath using half of the bar too. Lush tells me that the products scent is a combination of fruit tarts, coconut cream and a touch of aphrodisiac jasmine. I can't say that I could pick out any individual fragrance but combined the scent was just gorgeous, sweet and really filled my bathroom which made me so keen to jump in the bath.

      When I got in the bath I noticed how soft the water felt around me. I was having a bad day, I had been trying to move around my lounge furniture as one of my sofas was blocking the only radiator in the room and it was cold....i then found out that I couldn't move it because of my sky box being linked to the dish outside right over the other side of the room. I ached and was feeling a little bit sorry for myself but when I lay down in this lovely pink water my troubles just literally washed away for a little while.

      When I got out of the bath and dried myself off I noticed that the scent still lingered on my skin which is something that I liked as I loved the scent of this bubble bar. My skin felt incredibly soft to the touch as well which is a great benefit.

      I would totally recommend this bubble bar and am just going to knock one star off as it is so small and quite a high price.

      Thank you for reading my review!

        A brilliant Retro bubble bar!

        I placed an order with Lush online recently, and included some Retro products in my order. I only chose one bubble bar - and that was Two Timing Tart. This was because I'd read some really good reviews of the bar on Dooyoo, and also because the product description made it sound like something I'd really enjoy using.

        Two Timing Tart is a rectangular bubble bar with soft rounded edges. It resembles other older bubble bars, which were more like bubble bar slices rather than the shaped ones mostly available in the shop now. It is a lovely bright pink in colour and even has a cute bit of popcorn on top, rather like the cherry on top of a cake!

        According to Lush, the bubble bar was inspired by a member of the Lush team who apparently liked the ladies rather a lot! It contains coconut cream, jasmine absolute and geranium oil to create a fruity creamy scent which is absolutely delicious when the bubble bar is solid. The bar is suitable for vegans.

        I used the bubble bar on two separate occasions as I was able to break it into two pieces and only use one in each bath. The bar was very soft and crumbled into the bath easily. As usual with Lush bubble bars, loads of lovely soft bubbles were produced! The water turned not bright pink, but a lovely pale pink, and the delicious sweet creamy smell was still obvious.

        Once in the bath, the water felt silky and soft and the smell was lovely and relaxing. I stayed in for ages, and I would have stayed in longer but I'd put too much hot water in and I needed to get out to cool down!

        I really loved this bubble bar - it made my skin soft, smelled delicious, turned the bath water pink and produced lots of lovely bubbles. If you ever make an order from the Retro range I strongly recommend this bubble bar!

        A fantastic bubble bar, far too nice to have been relgated to the Retro range!

        My boyfriend and I are severe Lush addicts, and for my birthday he gave me a lovely gift box of various Lush goodies. One of the things I was most excited about was the retro pieces, as I have only tried a few things from this range. The Two Timing Tart bubble bar is available from Lush's retro range which can only be purchased through mail order or online at www.lush.co.uk. It costs £3.05 for a 100g bar.

        Lush say: "There is a rumour that the Two Timing Tart was inspired by a certain member of the Lush staff who loved the ladies. Its inviting fragrance of fruit tarts, coconut cream and a touch of aphrodisiac jasmine help it along the way."

        The bar looks really cute and fun, it's a rectangular block shape that is a plain hot pink colour. It has a little popcorn shaped motif on the top which provides a small break to the shocking colour! The smell of the bar is lovely, really appealing and comforting. It has a sweet soft scent and is perfect for girlie girls.

        It is a really original idea for a bath product. It's a solid bar and feels totally unlike most other bath products. The idea is that you use chunks of it in your bath water and it creates the same effect as a regular bubble bath. Because of its nature the product requires no packaging and is extremely environmentally friendly, just pop it into a recycled paper bag and then re-use or recycle it again once you've finished.

        It's important that you use this product correctly, so here are some tips on how to get the most out of your bath. To start with, keep the product dry at all times to preserve it's solid state. I usually store my Lush things in their little yellow paper bags in a box in my wardrobe, so that the steam and dampness from the bathroom doesn't affect them. When you are ready to use it, with dry hands break off a section of the bar. Lush usually recommend that you use a third of the bar per bath, but for this bar I use half of it for one bath. Start running the taps and crumble the bubble bar section under the hot running water. Make sure you break down the little lumps and help it to dissolve properly. To get an extra frothy bath, run the water through your showerhead and the bubbles grow out of control! Once the crumbled bits of bar have disappeared you will have a gorgeous bath full of bubbles waiting for you. It is quite soft and breaks up easily when you crush it in your hands, so you don't need to use too much force.

        I truly love this bubble bar. This is one of the few Lush retro things that I've tried before and I was so excited to get another one for my birthday. It smells lovely and the scent becomes stronger as it starts to bubble up and fills the bathroom. The pink colour of the bubble bar magically turns the bath water into a lovely bubblegum pink colour which is really fun, and a lot more interesting than plain old murky bathwater! The bubbles are amazing, you get so many and they are nice and light and frothy. They last a good long time, and the fresher your bubble bar the better staying power your bubbles will have. The bubbles literally stack up and really fill the bath area.

        As with most of the Lush bath bombs and bubble bars, the essential oils and natural ingredients really nourish my skin while I'm soaking in the bath. It seems to really hydrate and soften my skin, and the effect lasts for the whole day afterwards. I am left feeling soft and smooth and the oils sink into my skin easily after I get out of the bath, and doesn't leave a greasy sticky feeling. My skin soaks up the lovely sweet, creamy candy smell and stays perfumed for some while after.

        This is an indulgent and relaxing treat that I would recommend to other Lush fans, and I'd say it's definitely worth ordering this from the Retro range. I have no idea why such a gorgeous product would have been discontinued, but I'm glad it's still available even if it is only in limited qualities. It is an expensive cost per bath, but this is a fab bubble bar that is fun and works wonders on my skin as well.

        If you love this then you will probably like these similar products from Lush:

          A bubble bar with a gorgeous fragrance

          I'm a huge fan of Lush and have been using their products for years. I'm quite happy to pay the prices for a good quality product. Before relocating to rural Lincolnshire I worked in a law firm and worked long hours so it was always nice to come home, run a bath, use a Lush item and relax (mostly with a glass of wine!). Even though I'm only working part time for my partner it's always nice to pamper yourself and as I'm pregnant I think I need to pamper myself even more before the little one arrives as I doubt I will have much time!

          I love Lush's retro items as it tends to have a lot of my old favourites. The downside is that the retro items are only available online so you do have to pay for postage and packing but to be fair my nearest Lush store is 30 miles away so in a way the P&P cost can be my fuel money! One of my regular favourites is Lush's Two Timing Tart Bubble Bar. The bubble bar is a brilliant bright pink and is full of coconut cream which for me is heaven (I love anything coconut).

          This is Lush's "strawberries and cream" bubble bar so they say but even though it has the scent of coconut the main scent is geranium flowers. Lush has a habit of using geranium flower fragrance in every strawberry product past and present as it is naturally sweet it goes well with strawberries. Let's face it whenever we smell strawberry scented bath/ cosmetic products they certainly don't smell anything like real strawberries hence why geranium is used! Lush use geranium as it is natural and isn't synthetic which is what a lot of other companies use to give that sweet strawberry scent.

          Two Timing Tart is quite a good sized bubble bar and I cut mine into two pieces (you could probably get three pieces if your being careful) as there is no point in using a whole bubble bar in one bath, unless of course if you can't actually cut it up. Two Timing Tart is a slightly uneven rectangular shape which makes it easy to cut up. Just make sure your left of piece(s) are away from water as they will no doubt melt into a pile of mush!

          One of my favourite strawberry scented items is the Big Strawberry bath melt (now discontinued) and I was expecting the gorgeous jasmine and geranium fragrance to remain strong in the bath. However, I was slightly disappointed as Two Timing Tart's fragrance is slightly weak once it hits the water but once out of the bath it leaves a lovely subtle fragrance which lasts for hours.

          Two Timing Tart like most bubble bars is easily crumbled into the water (best way is to do it under the warm running water as it melts easier) and you will find your water turns a candy pink colour. As soon as you get into the water it feels like silk which is owed to the coconut cream. You can feel every inch of your skin being deeply nourished and moisturised. One little downside is the lack of bubbles, I was expecting a mountain of fluffy bubbles and even though you do get a few the coconut cream is quite rich which is my theory on why you don't get mountains of bubbles as you do with other bubble bars but that's hardly a problem. Just make sure when you finally decide to leave the moisture rich waters that you wash your bath out as you could possibly get a pink stain!

          What Lush say:-

          "There is a rumour that the Two Timing Tart was inspired by a certain member of the Lush staff who loved the ladies. Its inviting fragrance of fruit tarts, coconut cream and a touch of aphrodisiac jasmine help it along the way".

          Ingredients:-

          Sodium Bicarbonate, Cream of Tartar (Tartaric acid), Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Lauryl Betaine, Coconut Cream (Cocos nucifera), Perfume, Cocamide DEA, Benzoin Resinoid (Styrax benzoin), Jasmine Absolute (Jasminum officinale), Geranium Oil (Pelargonium graveolens), *Cinnamal, *Linalool, Colour 18050

          Price:-

          £3.05 per bubble bar

          Overall:-

          I really like this bubble bar, I love the feel of the water and my skin post bath is incredibly soft and smooth. I do however always use a body lotion as my skin can be quite dry but for people with normal skin I don't think you'd even need to use a lotion as the coconut cream does work wonders. Although the fragrance in the bath is weak it does stay on your skin afterwards which is nice as the fragrance although sweet is quite delicate. It is pricey for a bubble bar but if you can cut it up into pieces it doesn't seem so expensive but for a treat now and again this bright pink bubble bar can make you feel all girly again!

            A bubble bar I'll definitely be buying again!

            The year was heading towards St. Valentine's Day and nobody was going to treat me. So I thought I'd treat myself to a box of Lush goodies, and this was one of the products I ordered.

            If you haven't heard of Lush's bubble bars yet, then where have you been?! They're basically like bubble bath, expect they are solid and you crumble them under running water (much like you would pour bubble bath into your bath). I usually cut my bubble bars in to 2 or 3 pieces, but I've heard that some people manage to get 4 baths out of one bar (however, I love bubbles so much that mine rarely last me 2 baths, never mind 3!).

            This Lush bubble bar is magenta (pink) in colour with a little bit of white on top. It smells like strawberries & cream, with a hint of coconut and jasmine, but it's not a sickly smell at all. In fact, it smells delicious! It's almost good enough to eat... though I wouldn't advise doing that! Lush's story is that this bubble bar was inspired by a certain member of staff who loved the Lush ladies.

            I cut my Lush Two Timing Tart bubble bar into two pieces, putting one away for another time and then I crumbled the other piece into the bath (under running water). The bubble bar crumbled easily and as soon as the first crumbs hit the water, bubbles started to appear. As I crumbled more in, I noticed the water turning a Lush-ious deep pink colour.

            By the time I got into the bath, the bathroom was filled with a wonderful scent, while the bath had plenty of fluffy bubbles and deep pink, soft water. What more could a girl want?!

            I had a wonderful, relaxing bath and felt that I could have stayed there forever (had the water not started to go luke warm!).

            A while after my bath, I noticed I could still smell a hint of the delicious scent of the bubble bar on my skin. Lovely.

            I ordered this from the Lush's website during their Valentines promotion while it was in their "anti-valentines" section for those of us who don't celebrate it. However, it can now be found in the Retro section of the website which means you can only order it from the website now and not from any of their shops (which is a pity, because this is such a lovely bubble bar).

            I would highly recommend this Lush Two Timing Tar bubble bar to anyone who loves a relaxing bath with plenty of bubbles and a lovely smell.

            You can find it in the Retro section of Lush's website (www.lush.co.uk) for £3.05 for an 100g bar. It's not the cheapest, but it's definitely one of the best!

              Well worth buying

              Lush Two Timing Tart Bubble Bar

              Description: Brand: Lush / Type: Bath Foam / Wash away your guilty secrets; lose yourself in a luxurious, strawberries-and-cream bubble bath. Crumble under the running tap water for a bath full of scented bubbles.

              www.lush.co.uk


              This is another one of the products that Lush are selling online as part of their "Retro" range. And if I am being honest, another product which I am a little addicted to!

              In case you are unsure of what a bubble bar is, these bars are crumbled under warm running water and fill our bath with deliciously fragranced fluffy bubbles which last for ages. They are not the cheapest of products but one bubble bar can be used for two or even three baths.

              A 100g bubble bar will cost you £3.05. The bar is a bright red colour with a white centre and is suitable for vegans.

              Lush create hand made cosmetic products from only natural ingredients. Not only do they never test on animals themselves but they also won't by from suppliers who do. This bubble bar is suitable for vegans.

              Lush also carry out load of charity work and campaigns, both in this country and across the world, you can find more details on their website as well as product information (including ingredients) and also locate your nearest store.

              The only way to describe the scent of this bubble bar is strawberries and cream. It smells like candy and is so great that you will be tempted to taste it, just to check if it tastes as good as it looks!


              Ingredients are as follows;

              Sodium Bicarbonate, Cream of Tartar (Tartaric acid), Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Lauryl Betaine, Coconut Cream (Cocos nucifera), Perfume, Cocamide DEA, Benzoin Resinoid (Styrax benzoin), Jasmine Absolute (Jasminum officinale), Geranium Oil (Pelargonium graveolens), *Cinnamal, *Linalool, Colour 18050}

              *Occurs naturally in essential oils


              The bubbles last for ages and the water is really softened by the product. The fragrance lasts for ages on your skin after bathing and though I have sensitive skin, I have never had a problem with this product.

              If you like sweet and fragrant bubble baths then you should certainly go online and check this one out, I am amazed that it isn't still a top seller because it is so delicious. This bubble bar feels like a treat so why not treat yourself now - you deserve it!

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                If you like cheap tarts, this one is not for you.

                I have been very Lush greedy recently, got loads of stuff for Christmas, more stuff I ordered on line just after and then two visits, in quick succession, to my Lush store, followed by my other half 'treating me'. Again. No complaints though.

                One of the products I ordered online was this 'Two Timing Tart Bubble Bar' . Purely because of the name. It reminded me of my now ex-husband (and his Two Timing, also married, Tart). ROFL. The Lush website says that there is a rumour that the name for this product was inspired by a certain member of Lush staff who loved the ladies. I was not aware that my now ex-husband ever worked for Lush.

                *Price and Availability*
                This product is in Lush's retro range (of old favourites) and so is only available online at www.lush.co.uk / www.lush.com. It is not available in store. It is priced at £3.05 for a 100g bar. Postage & Packaging is charged at £3.95.

                *The Smell*
                The smell of this really reminds me of Strawberry Santa Shower Jelly. Lush have described it as strawberries and cream but it certainly doesn't smell like 'cream'. It does have a very sweet strawberry berry smell, but this is almost artificial smelling. Nonetheless, I do think it smells lovely. Like strawberry ice cream, imagine that.

                *What It Looks Like*
                Just as the above picture. A bright candy pink coloured rectangular shaped block of densely packed Lush bubbles! The off-whitish lump in the middle was a waxy-substanced thing that is probably meant to represent the 'cream'.

                *Using the Tart*
                Having never been a Two Timing Tart myself I desperately wanted to know what it would feel like and experience the ego boost from having something I really shouldn't.... Nah, enough of that. I'm too sweet to be bitter.

                With some Lush bubble bars I snap them in half before use in order to get two good baths out of them. In the case of this bar I decided to use the entire bar in one bath. I crumbled the bar with my hands underneath the hot running bath water. The intense aroma of artificial, yet very nicely so, berries and flowery things escaped and my bath water turned immediately a deep candy pink colour. The waxy-substance 'cream' appeared to melt away into nothingness.

                Stepping into the bath, I immediately noticed the lack of 'silk sensation' which I often experience with Lush bubble bars. By this I simply mean that it does not feel like stepping into a bath of silk. Very disappointing.

                Soaking in the bath with a good book I quickly noticed that the scent of this bath water was becoming less intense. Definitely. It was not just because I had been led there for half hour and was not noticing it as much. It simply had no staying power. I like my bath water to scent the whole house and this one just did not.

                *After Use*
                The scent lingered on my skin for ages afterwards. I had this bath early evening and its still on my skin five hours later. My skin does feel soft, cleansed and moisturised (from the coconut cream). Although I do feel relaxed, I do not feel sleepy or ready for bed at all and normally I am ZZzzzz by now. It actually feel quite lively and engergised, like I could do some ironing or another dull household chore that I always put off in favour of a good soak.

                *My Opinion*
                While this bar looks pretty and smells delicious, good enough to eat, I do feel a tiny wee bit let down. Let down because the intense aroma did not waft through my house as I have come to expect from Lush. The smell just seemed to die off quite quickly. That said, I still smell like a Strawberry Santa, sickly sweet and that is not a bad thing. It's making my other half amorous thats for sure (that will be the 'aphrodisiac, Jasmine). Tart.

                Other than that, the bar bubbled well and I should bloomin well hope so after using the entire bar. It did live my skin feeling good. And, bonus... it did not stain the bath.

                I think that this is one for a morning bath, if there is such thing becuase it just didn't do the sleep thing for me.

                *Overall*
                I don't think I would buy this again, at £3.05 it's not my favourite priced bar and there are better bars in my opinion; Creamy Candy/Candy Cane and Christmas Eve being my current faves. And I would certainly be offended if someone bought it for me!

                A mixed review for me, like it, but not that much. Want to give three and a half but can't, so its a three from me.

                *Ingredients (if you are interested)*
                Sodium Bicarbonate, Cream of Tartar (Tartaric acid), Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Lauryl Betaine, Coconut Cream (Cocos nucifera), Perfume, Cocamide DEA, Benzoin Resinoid (Styrax benzoin), Jasmine Absolute (Jasminum officinale), Geranium Oil (Pelargonium graveolens), *Cinnamal, *Linalool, Colour 18050}

                Disadvantages

                I'd two time this tart any day

                Two timing tart is a bubble bar from Lush's Retro range. This is a range of popular products which have been discontinued and are now available to buy online but not in the shops. This particular product has only recently been introduced to the range and I was really interested to try it as I'd either read somewhere, or spoken to someone who said that it had a strawberries and cream scent.

                When it arrived I was pleased to find that I really liked the fragrance. As the retro products are only available online a little guesswork is sometimes needed as to whether you'll like it or not. I thought this had a very sweet, feminine scent, and yes, there is a bit of a strawberry scent. At first I thought it smelled just like candy cane and creamy candy (which are very similar products) but now I think it smells more like Lush's Strawberry Santa jelly. As well as this fruity edge, there is also a hint of coconut in there too.

                The bubble bar is pink and a little rounder in shape than the picture above. There is a sort of white waxy lump of stuff in the middle of the bar, and I have no idea what that's supposed to be there for!

                To use this, you simply crumble it under running water and the idea is that it makes a bath full of bubbles. It's basically bubble bath but in solid form.

                When I crumbled this one into the bath it turned the water a lovely shade of bright pink, and started to produce lots of foamy white bubbles on the surface. The smell of the product wasn't very strong though - it was detectable, but only just, which was a little disappointing.

                I was also a little bit let down by the amount of bubbles. Don't get me wrong there were quite a few, but nowhere near as many as I normally get from a bubble bar. I had put the whole thing in, but had I broken it into pieces I think I may have been a little disappointed.

                Another thing I noticed, was that usually with the bubble bars, your bath water takes on a certain silkiness as the essential oils are released into the water, but that wasn't the case here unfortunately.

                A two timing tart bubble bar will cost you £2.94 and is only available online from www.lush.co.uk. I bought mine last month when they had a free delivery offer on, but usually you need to pay a delivery charge of about £3.99 so bear that in mind.

                So overall, I think you may have guessed that I would not recommend this bubble bar. It does smell lovely - and it has a great name, but the smell fades quite a lot once it's in the water, it doesn't feel very luxurious and it didn't seem to make a huge amount of bubbles either. One to avoid, I'm sad to say.

                  a must for fruit lovers

                  Well for those of you unfamiliar with Lush and their products, they are a company that doesn't believe in unnecessary preservatives & packaging. All of their products are made from natural, ethically sourced ingredients and they try to cut down on the amount of packaging they use which is why something like this bubble bar slice is such a good idea. Basically, it's just like liquid bubble bath that you would pour in to your bath, only in a solid form. Rather than an unattractive plastic bottle, you can have a bubble bar slice that comes in many different scents and many different colours. Most weigh 100g and to use, you simply crumble a little under your running bath tap and it will produce lots of lovely scented bubbles. Two timing tart is a fabulous bubble bar slice for anyone who enjoys the scent of strawberries as it's packed with strawberry fragrance. Like most bubble bar slices from Lush, it leaves your skin feeling silky smooth & moisturised. The scent lingers on your skin, long after your bath. The downside is that Two Timing Tart has now been discontinued but we live in hope that it may make a reappearance one day!!

                    Nice treat

                    Visiting town today noticed we had a new store opened, was going to walk past but the aroma coming from the store was very strong. So in I go. To my surprise all the products were produced from natural produce. And the aromas were quite strong too. Then I saw in the window what looked like big marshmallows. All different colours the assistant asked if I needed any help at all. So I asked about these marshmallows looking products and he gave me a demonstration.
                    Crumble this marshmallow into bath with water running and it foams up like bubble bath. He told me.

                    So I decided to treat myself to one. But which one do I choose I had to go for the one that was bright in colour and realised what the name was.
                    Product Review
                    *************
                    Two Timing Tart


                    So I went for the two timer tart which was cerise pink in colour. This bar is suitable for vegans and apparently (according Lush Times), this makes a 'strawberries and cream' bubble bath.
                    The smell was quite strong it was Strawberry & Cream. When I ran my bath and crumbled the bar into the water it got off to a promising start as it started to turn the water a gorgeous grill pink (which didn't need a lot of cleaning to get rid of after the bath) Thought the more water that was in the bath the colour would fade but no it stayed bright.So, how does one make bubbles from a bar? Well, there's got to be some running water, and a certain degree of crumbling.
                    I did have to work the water quite hard to get bubbles (try it with a whisk). On entering the bath the water felt very different. It felt soft and did smell of strawberry and cream.They were perfect - fluffy, gorgeous-smelling, long lasting, and they even seemed to moisturise a great deal.
                    I totally chilled out in the bath don't know whether it was the natural produce or what but it felt lovely. My skin felt silky smooth and soft. My bubble bath does not make my skin feel like this. And still the water is bright pink. Must admit after a stressful day at work I am totally chilled now. Best relaxation I have had for ages, I did not use all the block .Should get about another 2 baths out of it. So I have hid it. Thats my chilling bubble bath.On emptying the bath, I was thrilled to find that the Bubble Bar had left no residue whatsoever - the bubbles all washed away nicely and the bath was spotless
                    Price
                    ****
                    Just thought £1.95 for a 1000g slice was a little on the expensive side but hey for a treat go on girls, it really is relaxing. It was a little expensive at £1.95 each but hey it was a treat after all. They have various different Bubble Bar Slices with all different smells and different prices too.

                    Conclusion
                    *************
                    Only thing I was a little disappointed with was the amount of bubbles not like bubble bath, there was some but not a lot.On the whole, though, I'd recommend this product. It was a very enjoyable bathing experience. Will try a different one next time. The fragrance was very pleasant and not overpowering at all.

                      My least favouriate bubble bar

                      Introduction
                      +++++++++
                      To star with for those who may never have stepped foot inside a Lush shop, let me explain what a Bubble Bar Slice (from now on BBS) is. They are bars packed full of bubbles (as the name suggest) that sometimes resemble a bar of soap with a soft crumbly texture. You crumble them under running water and watch as your bathroom becomes a bubbly slice of heaven.

                      Two Timing Tart
                      +++++++++++++
                      No, on to Two Timing Tart specifically. This bar is suitable for vegans and apparently (according Lush Times), this makes a 'strawberries and cream' bubble bath. No I don't know about other people but it just didn't put me in mind of strawberries or cream. I don't know if they are referring to the smell or the colour but quite frankly the description wouldn't apply to either.

                      When I ran my bath and crumbled the bar into the water it got off to a promising start as it started to turn the water a gorgeous grill pink(which didn't need a lot of cleaning to get rid of after the bath) but that is where my best impressions started and finished. There was an average amount of bubbles for a BBS but it was not impressive by Lush standards, and I had to work quite hard to get the amount of bubbles I did.

                      Now one of the things I like best about BBS' is the effect they have of making my skin feel lovely and soft as well as clean. The Tart however, left my skin feeling quite tight and dry and I was more than a little surprised by this.

                      The other notably lacking aspect about the BBS is definitely the scent. Whilst I don't like to be overpowered with a sickly sweet smell, I don't like to be able to smell it a little. I could barely detect this scent in the bathroom whilst I was in the bath, let alone when I had gotten out and what I could smell was a slightly sweet not very distinctive scent that you could get from any number of bathing products. The lingering scent that usually clings to your skin and bathroom from a BBS bath just wasn't there either. I was also surprised to find out that it contained coconut cream and I hadn't detected a coconut smell at all.

                      Price
                      ++++
                      This BBS is £1.95 per 100g slice and whilst not their most expensive one, it is not the cheapest either and from my experience with it would definitely not be putting it on my Lush shopping list again, and from now on when I feel a craving for a sweet and girly bath time experience I shall be sticking to my Candy bubble bar.

                      Conclusion
                      ++++++++
                      Overall whilst the bar was not offensive it was disappointment and not the "frothy fragrant" bath it promised and I doubt very much whether I would pick it up again for myself or for a present for someone else.

                      However, if you've tried the BBS' before and discounted them because you found their scent too strong, perhaps this might be a good one for you to try.

                        Advantages

                        Disadvantages

                        It's pink, it's from Lush and it is divine

                        Well no obviously I haven't two-timed me with anyone but I couldn't resist the title. One of the main products to be written about on Dooyoo is a Lush product and up until this point I had remained a Lush virgin (hence the title) simply because the smell from any of the shops was so over powering that it put me off going in to investigate their goodies.

                        Anyway my love affair with Lush began when for my birthday my beloved husband had paid a visit to a Lush shop and as part of my present I was given a Lush Bubble Bar Slice called 'Two Timing Tart'. A Bubble Bar slice is in essence very similar to a Lush Bath Ballistic except the slice is a slice and not a ball shaped. Each Bath Bubble Slice is individually hand moulded and cut and with all their products using fresh ingrediants and preserves.

                        With it's bright pink (almost luminous) colour and retailing from Lush for the bargain price of £1.95 per 100g and according to Lush you should "Wash away your guilty secrets; lose yourself in a luxurious, strawberries-and-cream bubble bath", well i've got no guilty secrets that im willing to share with you, but I will share the secret of ensuring I have my bath run as I like it and how wonderful I thought this product really was.

                        After a weekend of spring cleaning the flat from top to bottom and entertaining two cats I was ready for this bath and eagerly grabbed one of the Bubble Bar slices and went in search of my newly cleaned bathroom to relax.

                        Lush packaging on single objects is relatively simple, they are wrapped tightly in some see-through packaging and upon opening, the first thing you notice is the smell

                        It is suggested by Lush suggest you crumble the bubble bar slice under a running tap water, so like an excited child I got my Two Timing Tart and did just as I was told to do. So once the tap is running at a nice warm temperature, or in my case really warm because I like hot steamy baths, you simply get your Bubble Bar and start to crumble it into the water. You can actually break the bar into two pieces and have double the pleasure.

                        I did find that once this product had been held under the running tap for ten seconds it crumbles with ease. When I began to crumble it, the first thing I noticed was that it felt like wet sand in my hands, which simply slipped through my fingers into the hot water below. Once you have crumbled your bar into the warm water any larger blobs begin to fizz away on their own, which for a first time Lush user was totally fascinating to watch as my clear bath water instantly turned into the brightest pink colour I have ever seen my water turn. The fizzing is due to the fact the main ingredient in all Bubble Bar Slices is Sodium Bicarbonate.

                        Once the Bubble Bath Slice was nicely crumbled and I had located my Harry Potter book and had it in hand I was ready to get into my newly bright pink bubble filled bath, for those people who know me well, pink is my favourite colour and now my bath had pink water in it plus a mountain of bubbles I was ecstatic. Two Timing Tart does give off a heavenly strawberries and cream aroma, which filled the bathroom, like with most products, I always smell it before I buy it or use it just to ensure that I will actually like it and as this smelt so delicious, almost good enough to eat I couldn't wait to get into my bath.

                        After reading a few chapters of Harry Potter and lazing in the bath it was time to get out. I did mention earlier that when you crumble this product it felt like wet sand, surprisingly there was not one grainy piece of Bubble slice lurking on the bottom, it had completely dissolved. One other thing I also noticed was that the smell lingered for a good few hours after my bath, and the wonderful aroma filled the house beautifully.

                        My skin was left feeling totally moisturised after my lovely pink Lush bath, it was a lot softer than it would have been after using my usual Radox or Imperial Leather bath creams. I also have extremely sensitive skin and often find that I am limited in which products I can use, for example I am allergic to The Body Shop shower creams and gels, but with Lush I haven't had any problems whatsoever, so that means I can now become a Lush addict and try everything.

                        So would I recommend this product? I absolutely would without a shadow of a doubt. As someone who is new to Lush products but has read a lot about them I can see why people are addicted to them and swear buy them. Also as someone with super sensitive skin I would also suggest their products, but I would advise you to go onto their website and check the ingredients used, they are listed under each product so it is easy to find out. Ive already been on the Lush website to decide what to try next after my birthday package runs out so watch this space…

                        **Extra Information**

                        If anyone wants to investigate Lush further to see what ingredients are used for this or any other products then you simply go to www.lush.co.uk which will give you the UK version of their website.

                        Lush products are not tested on animals, in fact they are vehemently against products being tested on animals and to test their own products they do tests on humans to ensure they are safe for general sale to the public and they will not buy ingredients from companies who use testing on animals as one of their protocols.

                        Lush first officially launched their products in 1995, although they had been around for many years previous and their name was decided upon in a competition after many years of working under the name 'Cosmetics to go' as a mail order company and so to Poole in Dorset the firm grew and became globally known. The one thing that I found really interesting when I read up about Lush as a company is that in most of their products they use real Jasmine Absolute Perfume, which I am told it is more expensive than gold, yet Lush products are sold at affordable prices so that the everyday person can treat themselves to such luxuries.
