Unicorn Horn was first released in 2015 and looked slightly different, the colours were brighter and featured a fourth bright blue colour. Nowadays although Unicorn Horn looks more shapely, I can’t help but miss the old colour scheme. Nevertheless this limited edition bubble bar has proven to be pretty popular and has made a return each year since it’s debut.
Although you might be expecting a sweet and sugary fragrance, it’s scent is unmistakably Lavender fronted and the familiar gentle, herbal aroma is what hits you at first sniff. Lavender Oil is perfect for calming the mind and helping you to relax. Hints of mood-brightening Neroli Oil and Ylang Ylang add a sweetness but like I said, it’s really the Lavender that takes the spotlight here. It’s definitely not as sweet as Twilight or Sleepy, it’s more of a natural and floral Lavender aroma, as if you were smelling the plant itself.
Although Lush suggest using a whole Unicorn Horn in one bath, you could definitely break it in half and use it twice. Me? Of course I used the whole product! As the water hit the crumbled bubble bar, it immediately produced heaps upon heaps of beautifully soft bubbles and by the time my tub was full, I couldn’t see the actual water! Although parting the blanket of bubbles showed me the lovely purply-pink colour it had become.
Once I was in, the soothing smell of Lavender was still very prevalent and really helped me to unwind after my long day. Although it looks like this bubble bar could potentially be very glittery, I found that it wasn’t the case in the water. Once I was out my skin felt soft and thoroughly clean and as a bonus I could still smell the light aroma on my skin which played an important role in helping me get to sleep. Furthermore, I wouldn’t say Unicorn Horn is particularly moisturising as I definitely felt the need to use a body lotion after but that’s a personal preference.
To conclude, Unicorn Horn is a lovely product, it’s not something that really blows me away or gets me excited to use again but it’s not going to let you down if you’re looking for a happy and relaxing bubble bath. I wonder if we’ll see her back next year?
