The Sleepy Bubble Bar started its Lush life as a Harajuku, Japan store exclusive. It is however at the time of writing this review currently available from Lush’s UK website. Released alongside a mountain of other bubble bars in celebration of 30 years since the bubble bar was invented, Sleepy has been one of the most popular sellers of them all.
The Sleepy (aka Twilight) fragrance is one of Lush’s most popular so this bubble bar being a best seller was no surprise to me at all.
Sleepy’s bath bomb equivalent Twilight was actually my first ever Lush bath bomb so its scent will always mean a lot to me. A few years ago the Mum in a Spin bubble spinner was released, it too shared a scent with the Sleepy bubble bar. If you enjoyed the bubble spinner then you’ll adore the Sleepy bubble bar as it’s on par size-wise with the, The Comforter bubble bar. It’s HUGE making it excellent value for money.
This cloud shaped bubble bar contains benzoin resinoid, tonka-absolute and both lavender and ylang ylang oils making it perfect to use just before bed. A very small amount of the Sleepy bubble bar goes a very long way too, with it being so big I cannot express how happy the fact that a little goes a long way makes me!
I normally break my bubble bars up and throw a few of the pieces (see above photo) into a sieve, I then run the contents of the sieve under the baths tap, remembering of course to put the plug in first! 😉
As soon as the water comes into contact with the bubble-bar-pieces its sweet-lavender-scent fills the room. At the same time, the bath-water starts to turn a beautiful shade of purple and lots of fluffy white bubbles also begin to appear; It doesn’t take very long at all for the bubbles to form into a blanket-like-layer upon the waters surface.
You can easily get 4 generously bubbled baths out of just the one Sleepy bubble bar with no hindrance to its quality. I will be very surprised if Lush do not make this bubble bar a part of their permanent line once the 30 years of the bubble bar celebrations are over.
I am over-the-moon impressed with the Sleepy bubble bar, its scent remains on your skin even the morning after using it and it really does help me wind down of a night time. I love the Sleepy scent and totally recommend using the Sleepy shower gel and Sleepy body lotion alongside the Sleepy bubble bar.
If you’re looking to have a luxurious and relaxing bath then Sleepy bubble bar needs to be top of your list of things to chuck in the tub with you!
