Gummy Bear Shower Jelly from Lush

The Gummy Bear Shower Jelly is a brand-new, limited-edition, Easter product that first became available in the UK at the start of March 2022. Designed to look just like the bear shaped sweets adored by children and adults alike, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on a pot.

Gummy Bear is a fairly small 85g, bright orange shower jelly. It fits perfectly in my hand making it very easy to use.

The Gummy Bear shower jelly contains coconut milk, fresh mango juice and the following essential oils, buchu, cardamom, litsea cubeba and sweet wild orange. Its scent is new to Lush too, it smells of a strong, tropical-fruit-cocktail with a super-sugary sweet twist.

It’s a very punchy and heavy scent, if you like the bolder Lush-scent families, I’d recommend giving the Gummy Bear shower jelly a try.

With Gummy Bear being a character shaped shower jelly, I was hesitant to use it at first as unfortunately I find more often than not, that the character shaped jellies aren’t always as sturdy and robust as the normal pot shaped ones.

As predicted, Gummy Bear did begin to fall apart after just a few uses. However, I realised I’d rather use it and lose it than not use it at all! So far, I’ve used it 4 times and although it is showing wear and tear, there’s plenty more to go around yet.

There is no right or wrong way to use a shower jelly, I prefer to use mine in the same way as you would a bar of soap, whole. Some people however chop their shower jellies up using a few pieces at a time – a good method if you’re sharing it with someone else.

If you do keep it whole, as I mentioned above, the Gummy Bear shower jelly is just the right size to fit snuggly in your hand. It is a lot easier to keep a hold of in the shower being this size. Once you’ve used it simply rinse it off and then pop it back into the pot until you next want to use it.

The Gummy Bear shower jelly lathers up quickly and creates a super creamy, almost-milky foam. A little goes a long way and glides over your skin easily.

As I stated earlier its scent is strong. As soon as you take the pots lid off, you are hit with its fruity scent BUT in use it really comes alive. Mixed alongside the hot water and steam of the shower its scent literally engulfs your bathroom. It has a tartness to it that makes me think of fruit pastels and jelly babies.

After using the Gummy Bear shower jelly my skin feels soft, clean, and fresh, it also appears somewhat brighter. It isn’t hugely moisturising but doesn’t leave me desperate to coat myself in body lotion either.

Overall I have enjoyed using the Gummy Bears shower jelly, it’s not my favourite from this year’s Easter line but I can see it selling quite well.

Disco Duck Bath Bomb from Lush

The Disco Duck Bath Bomb was first released by Lush in their 2022, Easter line. It’s yellow all over with a small dark green beak. Designed to look like it is put together in little square pieces (just like a reflective disco ball) it is quite the eye catcher!

Out of this years’ (2022) Easter line, I think it is one of the more interesting products to look at and I looked forward to trying it in the bath.


The Disco Duck bath bomb is a smaller sized bath bomb at approximately 110g each. For comparison purposes the Butterball bath bomb is 95g and an Intergalactic bath bomb is 200g. 

On Lush’s website the Disco Duck bath bomb is described as being a ‘quacking good pick-me-up’. It contains; juniper berry, Persian lime and rosemary oils alongside menthol crystals, guarana powder and a sprinkle of popping candy too.

The Disco Duck bath bomb’s scent is quite an acquired taste. I first experienced its scent in the Party On shower jelly back when the Lush Kitchen had a weekly menu. Being honest as always, it wasn’t a product I liked. In fact, I disliked it so much that I didn’t bother to review it on here and quickly gave the shower jelly away.

You may wonder why I even bothered to try the bath bomb after I didn’t enjoy the shower jelly equivalent. I however always strive to try everything from the limited-edition, seasonal lines at least once. Quite often I find that different product formats carry the same scents very differently too.

It was a bit of a gamble ordering a Disco Duck online, but it was a gamble that paid off, as in the end I really did enjoy using it!

Upon cold sniff, the Disco Duck’s scent is zesty with a heavy menthol and aniseed-rich edge. I feel as if the scent disappeared completely as the bath bomb dissolved which in most cases would I annoy me, however, with me not being a huge fan of its scent, it actually worked in this products favour.

As soon as the Disco Duck bath bomb touches the water you are greeted with a gentle hiss, as a thin layer of green and yellow foam fizzles out of it.

It feels like Lush haven’t released a bath bomb that creates bath art like Disco Duck does in forever. Bath art wise, the Disco Duck bath bomb didn’t disappoint. Yellow and green swirls are created as Disco Duck charges around the bathtub like a mini speed boat.

The water left behind is bright green, so bright that it reminds me of a high-vis safety jacket. The water turns silky to-the-touch too. My dry skin loved soaking in all of the bath bombs’ goodness and the guarana powder in it really shines through, Lush weren’t lying when they said the Disco Duck bath bomb was a pick-me-up, it left my skin positively glowing!

I do think the bath bomb could have had a little more popping candy in it, I actually had to double check the ingredients after I had used it as it didn’t snap, crackle and pop very much at all, – so little that I thought I had imagined it…

… Overall, I did very much enjoy using Disco Duck. It’s saving grace for me was the fact its scent completely disappeared during use. I know this may however be a negative for most customers, as it would be for me if it was made in a Lush-scent-family that I really liked.

Kim the Carrot Bubble Bar from Lush

If like me you’ve been a Lush customer for quite some time, you’d know all about Lush’s past perfectly-innocently-shaped fruit and vegetable inspired Valentine’s Day products. 2022 has not only brought us a giant version of the Aubergine bath bomb but now we also have a Kim the Carrot Bubble Bar too.

Kim the Carrot is a carrot shaped bubble bar that appears to have legs. Yes, you read that correctly, it’s a carrot with LEGS! Never have I ever looked at a carrot and thought of it as a particularly romantic or ‘sexy’ vegetable but here we are with carrots in 2022’s Valentine’s Day line… You heard it here first, carrots are no longer exclusive to Lush’s Easter line.

The Kim the Carrot bubble bar is a fairly decent sized bubble bar at 120g (for comparison purposes The Comforter bubble bar, one of Lush’s largest is 200g) It contains a long list of ingredients; benzoin resinoid, vanilla absolute, fresh carrot juice and fresh ginger root.

Its scent is incredibly sweet, just like the bright pink candy sweets you get in sweet shops. If you told me that more than just vanilla was in this product, I wouldn’t believe you based on its scent alone.

The one thing I love about Lush’s bubble bars is that they can be spread out over several baths whereas bath bombs can only really be used in just the one bath. I was therefore pleased to find out that a very small amount of the Kim the Carrot bubble bar went a very long way.

To use the Kim the Carrot bubble bar, I put broken up pieces of it into a sieve and let the running bath-water trickle over it as the bath fills up. It’s a really soft, crumbly bubble bar making it very easy to break up.

I find the sieve method the most effective way to use single use bubble bars. It is also the best way to ensure that none of the bubble bar gets accidentally wasted. Through trial and error, I have discovered that using a bubble bar in this way ensures that you get the most bubbles too.

(Photo 4)

You could easily get 3 generously bubbled bubble baths out of just one Kim the Carrot. The bubbles begin to form very quickly and the water underneath the blanket of bubbles is just as bright orange as the water created by the Brightside bubble bar.

The water is smooth to the touch and the bubbles last throughout your whole soak. One thing I did notice after using the Kim the Carrot bubble bar is that it wasn’t as hydrating on the skin as other recently released Lush bubble bars have been. It didn’t dry my skin out at all, I just noticed it wasn’t as moisturising as I have grown accustomed to.

Overall, I enjoyed using the Kim the Carrot bubble bar, it isn’t my favourite from the Valentine’s Day line, but I am glad I tried it.

Love Bug Bath Bomb from Lush

The Love Bug Bath Bomb is brand new to Lush and is a standout product from their 2022 Valentine’s Day range.

If you’ve been a Lush customer for some time and have shopped from past Valentine’s Day lines before now, you may have a slight feeling of déjà vu when giving the Love Bug bath bomb a sniff – and for good reason too… The Love Bug bath bomb shares its scent with the past and very popular Valentine’s Day product, the Love Boat bath bomb!

Colour wise, the Love Bug bath bomb is almost identical to Love Boat, the only real difference between the two bath bombs is the most obvious; One is a boat the other is a car and the second less obvious fact, the Love Bug bath bomb isn’t decorated with the confetti hearts like the Love Boat was.

I’ll admit, I was a little sad to see that the Love Boat bath bomb hadn’t made a return, but all was not lost with the Love Bug bath bomb being so similar.

The Love Bug bath bomb contains rose, organic sweet orange and Sicilian lemon oils. Its scent is a zesty and floral affair. The Sicilian lemon and sweet orange oil dominate the Love Bug bath bombs scent, it does however have a slight floral element to it too, the rose oil adds a soft sherbet like layer. I find its scent uplifting, refreshing and cheery.

Once the Love Bug bath bomb touches your bath water you are greeted with an explosion of thin pink, yellow and blue foam. As it fizzles away, the blue and yellow colours blend together creating streaks of green and the blue and pink blend together creating streaks of purple too.

The Love Bug is a quick fizzer taking approximately 7 minutes to fully dissolve. Its refreshing scent is strong throughout the whole bath and I can still smell it on my skin several hours after getting out.

The water left behind is silky smooth and a clear dark pink colour. The rose oil in it makes it a very soothing experience for Winter frazzled skin. After a good soak in a Love Bug bath, I feel revived and refreshed.

I didn’t get great photos of the Love Bug bath bomb in action, it’s a bath bomb you must experience for yourself to truly appreciate its beauty. For a bath bomb that is just pink, yellow, and blue I couldn’t quite believe all of the colours that exploded out of it. The rainbow of colours was just as good as those created by the actual Lush rainbow-bath-bombs, Toby’s Magic Cow and Follow the White Rabbit.

Overall, I really enjoyed using the Love Bug bath bomb. It’s pretty much the same as Love Boat so if you are disappointed it didn’t make a return this year (or if you are looking for a product that gives you a similar experience) make sure you give the Love Bug bath bomb a go!

Hot Lips Lip Mask and Scrub from Lush

The Hot Lips Lip Mask and Scrub is the first of its kind from Lush. We’ve had similar with their eye pads before now, but have never had a lip mask.

Along with Hot Lips being a lip mask, it is also apparently a lip scrub. I was very intrigued when I heard about this aspect of Hot Lips as before now, all of Lush’s lip scrubs have been sold in a pot (for example, the Golden Pineapple lip scrub. There were a few solid lip scrubs that were released back in 2017 too, Black Rose being my favourite) but unfortunately, they didn’t sell well so got scrapped and have long been forgotten about…

As I said earlier, Hot Lips is made in a similar way to the fairly new Lush-product-invention, eye pads. Hot Lips has the same sturdy, jelly-like consistency and must be kept in your fridge until you’re ready to use it, staying fresh for 3 weeks.

Hot Lips is described on Lush’s website as being very similar in flavour, to a delicious Cherry Bakewell. Ingredients wise, Hot Lips contains, calendula petal and hibiscus flower infusion, carrageenan extract, bamboo stem extract (the scrubby aspect of the mask that I’ll talk more about later) and the following essential oils – davana, lime and almond.

To use Hot Lips as both a mask and scrub, there are 2 stages. Stage 1 is the lip mask aspect of it. All you have to do is take Hot Lips out of your fridge, unwrap it from its fully compostable wrapping paper, then place it on your lips for about 10 minutes. With it being fresh from the fridge, it’s extremely cooling on your lips. Sit back and relax and let Hot Lips soothe and smooth your lips.

Stage 2 of using Hot Lips is as a lip scrub. When I first got a hold of this product, I really wasn’t sure how well this product would work as a scrub. The grounded bamboo in Hot Lips however add a very gentle scrub like consistency. As you gently buff it over your lips it slowly starts to break down becoming scrubbier. While I don’t think Hot Lips is as good as a lip scrub as Lush’s potted ones, the mask stage did soften my lips somewhat and the scrub stage did make my lips feel somewhat smoother.

Would I recommend using Hot Lips more than once? No. In this products case, fresh is best. With it being a product for your lips and one you have to handle a lot to use, I would say you should only really use it the once.

Although, it is plenty big enough for you to cut it in half (and still have enough product to cover all your lips at the mask stage) so if you want to stretch out 2 uses from it, that is a good solution. You just won’t have the novelty side of the product as cut into 2, it won’t be lip shaped anymore.

Overall, I really enjoyed using the Hot Lips lip mask and scrub. It was nice to experience a different type of lip scrub and I was surprised at just how well it did work. Hot Lips is a fantastic addition to Lush’s Valentine’s Day line, and I look forward to seeing what Lush next come up with!

Mr Loba Loba Bath Bomb from Lush

As soon as the 2022 Lush Valentine’s Day products were revealed, I knew that the Mr Loba Loba Bath Bomb would be the first one that I grabbed. As you can see from the above and below photos, Mr Loba Loba is a gorgeous little lobster shaped bath bomb with a sprinkling of biodegradable red confetti hearts decorating its body.

The Mr Loba Loba bath bomb is approximately 100g, similar in size to the Sleepy Bear and Tick-Tock bath bombs.

Mr Loba Loba is a gloriously bright red and as I mentioned earlier, is lightly decorated with a sprinkling of confetti hearts. I love the inclusion of these in bath bombs, just like the bath bombs that contain popping candy I feel the confetti hearts add something a little extra for your visual pleasure.

The Mr Loba Loba bath bomb contains benzoin resinoid, tonka absolute and almond essential oil. Its scent is sweet yet warm. It smells almost like a blend of vanilla and some type of berry fruit, the almond essential oil adds a nuttiness to its fragrance, rounding off the tonka absolute. It’s incredibly moreish and a scent I would like to see more of from Lush.

What with the recent price hike on all of Lush’s products, I’d say that the Mr Loba Loba bath bomb is actually a quite reasonable price. I can see a lot of Lush’s future bath bombs being of a similar size just so Lush don’t begin to price themselves out. I don’t normally mention exact prices in my reviews as Lush do change their prices a lot.

Sadly, bath bombs are single-use-products, and I can’t even see myself, (a self-confessed Lush addict) wanting to spend much more on a single bath bomb, maybe smaller Lush bath bombs like Mr Loba Loba are the way of the future, who knows?

As soon as the Mr Loba Loba bath bomb touches the water you are greeted with an explosion of red foam. I think it might just be the foamiest bath bomb that I have ever used from Lush.

Like the Lucky Tiger bath bomb, Mr Loba Loba isn’t a bath art creator, its unique selling point is its enchanting scent and just how foamy it is. It makes the most incredibly soft water and leaves your skin super hydrated.

As the Mr Loba Loba bath bomb floats around your bath, the red confetti hearts begin to break away from the bath bomb slowly decorating the water with perfect little love-hearts.

For its size the Mr Loba Loba bath bomb takes a lot longer to dissolve than I expected – a good 5 minutes. As I said earlier, it’s the foamiest bath bomb I have used in a very long time, this foam makes the water so, so soft and hydrating. My skin loved it; I didn’t want to get out of the bath.

Eventually, (and only because the water got too cold) I did have to get out of the bath and pull the plug. The scent remained on my skin for the best part of the rest of the day and left it feeling silky smooth!

Overall, I adore the Mr Loba Loba bath bomb. It’s a fantastic, novelty addition to the Valentine’s line. I’d love to see it year in, year out but am trying to not get too attached as Lush have a habit of making products like this one-hit-wonders…

Strawberry Heart Shower Jelly from Lush

The Strawberry Heart Shower Jelly is brand new to Lush and a part of the 2022, Valentine’s Day line. Given that it is a Valentine’s Day product you’d expect the Strawberry Heart shower jelly to be the lovey-dovey, anatomically inaccurate heart-shape. Lush have however shaken things up a bit by making the shower jelly the anatomically ACCURATE shape, it’s shaped just like a real life human heart, (see photo below).

The Strawberry Heart shower jelly contains fresh strawberry juice, jasmine absolute and the following essential oils: Sicilian lemon, lime and ho wood. Its scent is a new one from Lush; It reminds me of the super-sour, sugary strawberry lace sweets, positively delicious!

As soon as you take off the Strawberry Heart shower jellies lid, you are greeted with its mouth-watering fragrance, it’s a very, very strong, juicy strawberry scent that quickly takes over the room it is in and even more so when you’re in a hot and steamy shower with it.

There is no right or wrong way to use a shower jelly, I prefer to use mine in the same way as you would a bar of soap, whole. Some people however chop their shower jellies up using a few pieces at a time – a good method if you’re sharing it with someone else.

If you do keep it whole, the Strawberry Heart shower jelly is just the right size to fit snuggly in your hand. It is a lot easier to keep a hold of in the shower being this size too. Once you’ve used it simply rinse it off and then pop it back into the pot until you next want to use it.

The special shaped shower jellies like Strawberry Heart often fall apart a lot quicker than the standard shaped ones; The Strawberry Heart shower jelly has however lasted me through 5 showers so far, making it incredibly cost effective, I can see myself getting many more showers out of it yet!

The Strawberry Heart shower jelly lathers up quickly and creates a super creamy foam. A little goes a long way and glides over my skin effortlessly. As I stated earlier its scent is bold straight from the pot, but it really, really comes to life when you are using it in the shower. For such a small shower jelly it really does have a lot of stamina, scent and robusticity wise.

Normally shower jellies can be quite drying on my skin, the Strawberry Heart shower jelly however leaves my skin soft, clean, fresh, and appearing brighter. It isn’t hugely moisturising but also doesn’t leave me desperate to coat myself in body lotion once I am out of the shower.

Overall, I am really impressed with the Strawberry Heart shower jelly, it’s a fantastic addition to this year’s Valentine’s Day line and I can see it selling well.

Unicorn Poop Bath Bomb from Lush

The Unicorn Poop Bath Bomb first became available in the UK at the end of November 2021. If you know me, you’ll know I’m absolutely obsessed with anything to do with unicorns, saying I was excited to try the Unicorn Poop bath bomb would be an understatement indeed.

Much like the Follow the Rabbit and Snowman Dreaming bath bombs, Unicorn Poop is full of a rainbow of colours. It is shaped like the poo emoji with pink, yellow, purple and blue swirls in its twisted top. Just looking at it shows you exactly how the Unicorn Poop bath bomb got its name.

The Unicorn Poop bath bomb doesn’t share its scent with the Unicorn Horn bubble bar or the Unicorn lip scrub – it actually belongs to the Cocktail scent family. The Cocktail scent is very similar to the scent found in the Fizzbanger bath bomb BUT not nearly as fruity, its scent is a lot sharper and has musky elements too.

I’d go as far as to say that the Unicorn Poop’s scent, out of all of the scents Lush have created over the years is one of the most mature to date. I therefore find it a puzzling scent choice considering that the bath bomb is literally named after unicorn poo, something that would appeal more to children than senior citizens.

It contains calamine powder, jasmine absolute and the following essential oils – bergamot, davana and ylang ylang.

I’m always honest in my reviews and I hate to start 2022 with a wishy-washy review but the Unicorn Poop bath bomb wasn’t as good in the bath as I had imagined it to be.

Upon hitting the water the Unicorn Poop bath bomb has a little eruption of pink and white foam. Purple foam then begins to trickle out of it too. As the Unicorn Poop bath bomb dances around in your bath water more colours come out of it, although only small amounts.

The bath art side of this bath bomb isn’t nearly as good as I’d had hoped a ‘rainbow bath bomb’ like this to be. It bubbles away until it fully dissolves leaving you with pearly pink bath water.

The Unicorn Poop bath bomb takes approximately 15 minutes to fully dissolve, for such a slow fizzing bath bomb I really did expect more bath art, I’m wondering if the pastel tones of the colours is what dampens the bath art down somewhat.

Once the Unicorn Poop bath bomb has fully dissolved the water is silky smooth. I didn’t find the water very moisturising but it didn’t dry out my skin at all.

Sadly, the Unicorn Poop bath bomb isn’t one I’d get again. It was perfectly marketed to me as a unicorn-mad Lush fan but in my opinion the scent just didn’t fit within the theme of it at all. I’d have also liked to have seen more bath art from it considering its name and how colourful it is.

Lush have recently released some amazing rainbow coloured bath bombs that are so much better than Unicorn Poop. It’s very rare for me to dislike a bath bomb but Unicorn Poop didn’t captivate me in the same way as most other Lush bath bombs do.

Snow Fairy Lights Bath Bomb from Lush

Another day, another review on a limited-edition, Winter-product that shares its scent with the cult classic, Snow Fairy shower gel… The Snow Fairy Lights Bath Bomb is new to Lush this Winter (2021). Designed in the same way as the Love Locket Amazeball bath bomb, I was very excited to get my hands on one.

Just like the Love Locket bath bomb that I mentioned above, the Snow Fairy Lights bath bomb is both pink and blue externally. It’s just like all of Lush’s previously released amazeballs, Lush seem to have just dropped the ‘amazeball’ term in the bath bombs name.

Lush’s Amazeballs and the Snow Fairy Lights bath bomb have a super fancy design. They are hollow inside and each have a small, bath-bomb-lid – In Snow Fairy Lights case it is the little blue snowflake you can see in the above and below photos.

Inside of the hollow Snow Fairy Lights bath bomb are mini-bath-bomb-circles in various colours. You can see them in the photo below.

There’s no right or wrong way to use the Snow Fairy Lights bath bomb. Some sprinkle the mini-bath-bomb-circles into the bath water before adding the rest of the bath bomb, while others put it in all together.

Some even use each bit in separate baths. – A good idea if you want to spread the product out over several baths rather than just the one.

The Snow Fairy scent is best described as a sickly-sweet blend of candy floss and bubblegum.

I don’t always favour the super-sweet-scented Lush products HOWEVER, with the Snow Fairy scent featuring so heavily in so many of Lush’s products, it’s almost impossible to avoid, especially in the Winter.

Over the years I have slowly warmed to the scent. The fact that all-things Snow-Fairy-scented are almost (mostly) bright pink (my favourite colour) really helps sell them to me too.

I was very excited for the bath art from the Snow Fairy Lights bath bomb as I expected it to be on par with the bath bomb I mentioned at the start of this review, the Love Locket bath bomb.

Upon hitting the water, the Snow Fairy Lights bath bomb created an explosion of pink foam. The Snow Fairy scent fills your bathroom as it starts to fizzle away. Sadly, this is where the show ended for me.

The photo above was taken within the first 15 to 20 seconds of placing the Snow Fairy Lights bath bomb into the bath water. I let go of it immediately after that, readying myself for some serious bath art however all of the bath-bomb-pieces sunk to the bottom of the bath; The small coloured bits, the pink star-piece and the blue snowflake simply just disappeared. There wasn’t a single bit of bath art at all. 🙁

The water left behind by the Snow Fairy Lights bath bomb is a super-shimmery pink. Its scent remained throughout the bath, and it still lingered in the air for a short while after it had gone down the plug hole too.

My skin wasn’t particularly hydrated after my bath, but the scent lingered on my skin for a few hours after using it.

Unfortunately, I wasn’t very impressed with the Snow Fairy Lights bath bomb once I had given it a go. I much prefer the ordinary Snow Fairy bath bomb as it’s cheaper and has a little more to give during use. I wholeheartedly recommend the Snow Fairy bath bomb and Snow Fairy Roll bubble bar over Snow Fairy Lights.

Never-the-less I do think that the Snow Fairy lights bath bomb is a good ‘novelty product’ that I think children could potentially quite enjoy because of it being in several pieces.

Sleepy Bear Bath Bomb from Lush

The Sleepy Bear Bath Bomb was first released as a single item a few days ago and has proven to be a very popular part of Lush’s extensive 2021 Winter line.

Lush’s Sleepy range is huge and because of its ‘magical sleeping properties’ happens to be one of Lush’s most sought after scent families.

The masses will be pleased to hear that yes, the Sleepy Bear bath bomb does share its scent with the Sleepy body lotion and Twilight bath bomb.

The Sleepy Bear bath bomb is very close in size to last year’s smaller, Winter bath bombs Tick-Tock and (available again this years’) I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas.

I really enjoyed the smaller bath bombs last year and am pleased to see some of them return. They were just as good as the larger ones and excellent value for money too.

If you’ve read any of my Lush product reviews before now, you’d know I always have a soft spot for the products that are made into characters (i.e. any Lush product that has eyes, or one eye for my beloved Monsters’ Ball bath bomb).

The Sleepy Bear bath bomb is super cute, designed to look just like a polar bear lying flat on its stomach, it looks like it’s ready to slide on down an icy slope and straight into your bathtub!

The Sleepy Bear bath bomb is white all over except for its bum/back. Its bum/back is covered with a sprinkling of purple-bath-oil-dipped lavender petals.

As well as on its own, the Sleepy Bear bath bomb is also available in the gift set pictured here; The Dreamland Gift Set.

As well as the lavender petals the Sleepy Bear bath bomb also contains organic cocoa butter, fine oatmeal, benzoin resinoid, tonka absolute and lavender and ylang ylang oils.

The scent is perfect to help you wind down at the end of the day. After just one sniff you’ll understand why everything that Lush release in the Sleepy fragrance becomes a best seller.

As soon as the Sleepy Bear bath bomb touches the water you are greeted with a ferocious hiss, white bubbles sizzle out of the bath bomb as it bobs around the water surface.

It doesn’t take long for the water to engulf the whole bath bomb and as soon as the water comes into contact with the lavender petals a small burst of purple explodes from it.

As this happens the lavender pieces start to break free from the bath bomb spreading across the water surface.

For such a small bath bomb the Sleepy Bears’ scent is strong, it’s just as powerful as the larger sized, aforementioned Twilight bath bomb.

Sleepy Bear is also a fairly quick fizzer too, giving you plenty of time to lay back and soak up the relaxing and super moisturising organic cocoa butter and oatmeal infused waters, surrounded by lavender petals you’ll feel like you’re floating on a lavender scented cloud.

Once out of the bath, my skin feels soft and just as hydrated as if I’d moisturised.

The Sleepy Bear leaves its scent on my skin too, I can still smell it on myself the next day.

I always drift off to sleep so much easier after I’ve used a Sleepy scented Lush product before bed. If you’re looking for a product to help you relax this Winter I’d recommend the Sleepy Bear bath bomb every time.

Overall, I really like the Sleepy Bear bath bomb. It’s a good price and plain enough to gift it to someone who may be on the fence about trying Lush.

It’s worth every penny and I will certainly be buying a few more before the Winter line is retired for another year.
