The Deep Sleep Bath Bomb was one of the first products I grabbed on my very first visit to Lush Liverpool on their opening day back in 2019. It is safe to assume that the bath bomb has been well received by Lush customers as several years after the Liverpool stores grand opening, the Deep Sleep bath bomb is still available as an all year round product in both stores and online.
As you can see from the photograph above, the Deep Sleep bath bomb isn’t your average looking Lush bath bomb as it is wrapped in a fully compostable muslin cloth.
With the Deep Sleep bath bomb being wrapped it means you can enjoy the dry lavender and German chamomile flowers that are hidden within it without the fear of clogging up your pipes with the bits of flowers that could end up going down your plug hole when the bath drains. It is also a huge bonus for those customers that dislike any ‘bits’ floating around in the bath with them. Put simply, you get all of the benefits from the ingredients without the mess!
Alongside the above-mentioned flowers, the Deep Sleep bath bomb also contains lavender absolute and the following essential oils, lavender, chamomile and neroli. Scent-wise my nose mostly picks up on all of the lavender in the Deep Sleep bath bomb, it’s a very sweet yet herbal scent, it actually reminds me of my childhood home. We had lavender growing right outside of our front door, I remember my nan rubbing her hands on bits of the lavender she had picked every time she went past it.
As soon as the Deep Sleep bath bomb touches the water you are greeted with a gentle hiss, slowly but surely, purple bubbles fizz out of the bath bomb turning the bath water a very inviting, Cadbury purple colour.
If you thought the Twilight bath bomb was great to use before bed, then you’ll be blown away with Deep Sleep. When used just before bed, the lavender and chamomile blend really helps lull you into a truly relaxed state of mind. As soon as you lay back into a Deep Sleep bath you can feel yourself instantly relax, all tension that has built up in your body that day simply melts away.
The Deep Sleep bath bomb takes approximately 8 to 10 minutes to fully dissolve, only the muslin cloth full of the dry lavender and German chamomile flowers remains, floating around your bath adding not just to the baths scent but also to how soft the bath water is.
The water is a beautiful shade of purple and silky smooth to touch, it leaves my skin feeling soothed and refreshed. The scent of Deep Sleep is still detectable on my skin the morning after I have used it too. This allows Deep Sleep’s calming effects to work on me right through until the next day.
If you’re looking for bath art, Deep Sleep wouldn’t be a good choice BUT if you are just chasing a good night’s sleep, this bath bomb may just be the key ingredient you’ve been looking for. Overall, I am super impressed with the Deep Sleep bath bomb, my excuse for taking so long to finally review it on here is based on its price. If it wasn’t so expensive, I’d be using it a lot more often!
