Review: This was first introduced in 2002 for Valentine’s Day. It was re-made twice thus far in 2004 and 2005 during the Lush UK Retro remake. Lush‘s “It’s a Date!” bubble bar was advertised as having the same scent as Lush‘s “Sugar Plum Fairy” and “Plum Duff” ballistics.
Indeed it does. It was suggested to use the bubble bar as a way of making a date with your sweetie. It has an actual date (the fruit) in the middle. The date doesn’t look too good when it scares you later in the tub as it floats by [-) but just remember that you’ve got a date fruit in your tub. The actual bubble bar is the prettiest thing I’ve ever seen.
It’s a date is one in my holy trinity of Lush bbs; Flower Tub, Psychodelic and It’s aDate.
It’s smells like a lushious, fruity, pink cotton candy smell mixed with sensous sandalwood. Wow. Bright nuclear pink water and soft, fluffy, huge bubbles. It’s girly, it’s foody, it’s sensual all at teh same time, and this combination so works. This bubble bar certainly does stand alone scent-wise in the tub…but…if you can find a Sugar Plum Fairy or Plum Duff ballistic the two together make the best special occasion Lush “Bath ****” ever.

Spring 2003 LT Description: How bright can you make pink? Picture that and you’ll have the color of It’s a Date clearly appearing in your mind’s eye. On top of the sweet, fruitily scented It’s a Date is a piece of a date, the fruit from the palm tree, not a fraction of calendar. The idea is that if you’re a little too shy to ask someone out, you present your beloved with this, he or she will examine it closely an then point to the brown thing on the top. “What’s that?” he or she will ask. “It’s a Date!” you say. Job done. Then your date gets a lovely pink bubbly bath into the bargain. Clever or what?
