Time to Relax Bath Bomb from Lush

The Time to Relax Bath Bomb is a brand-new, limited-edition product from Lush’s 2023 Mother’s Day line.

Time to Relax is not the average type bath bomb, it has been specifically designed so that it can be used over 3 baths, although most people (including myself) use it all in one, as it makes one truly epic bath!

The Time to Relax bath bomb is 3 different products in 1, the photo above is all of the bath bomb pieced together. The photos below show the bath bomb with its lid off, inside of it are red bath salts.

As I said earlier, I used all 3 parts of this product in one bath starting with tipping the red bath salt into the bath water as the bath was filling up.

I was really surprised at how quickly the red bath salt changed the colour of the water, the water very quickly turns a light shade of pink and a few bubbles are created too. The salt is mixed with little pieces of what looks like the strands that Lush make into their shampoo bars.

The bath salt not only turned the bath water light pink, it also left the bath water so incredibly soft.

Next, I placed the bath bomb back together again before putting the Time to Relax bath bomb into the water.

Upon putting it in to the water you are greeted with a burst of light blue foam. As the lighter blue part of the Time to Relax bath bomb is hollow it doesn’t take long for the darker blue lid-part of the bath bomb to come into contact with the water too.

Blue, dark purple, violet and pink foam slowly starts to create swirling patterns on the water’s surface, I wasn’t expecting so many colours at all, my photos in this review do the bath bomb no justice at all.

After about 5 minutes, all of the Time to Relax bath bomb has fully dissolved, and you are left with slightly purple tinged, dark blue coloured bath water.

Now that I have talked through how I personally used the Time to Relax bath bomb let’s get into its scent.

The Time to Relax bath bomb shares its scent with the Deep Sleep bath bomb. Its scent is both soothing and relaxing, this bath bomb really does live up to its name.

The Time to Relax bath bomb contains Epsom salts, lavender absolute and the following essential oils, lavender, chamomile blue and neroli. Scent-wise my nose mostly picks up on the lavender. It’s a very sweet and herbal scent.

As I said earlier, the Time to Relax bath bomb takes approximately 5 minutes to fully dissolve, bath salts included. Other Lush bath bombs that include sea salt such as the Geo Phyzz bath bomb have much bigger chunks of salt in them so can scratch your bottom when you first get in your bath.

Time to Relax bath bombs salt is a lot more gentle as it is Epsom salt, it seems to dissolve into your bath water long before you’ve even had a chance to check if any remnants of it still remain. 

Laying back in the bath water left behind by the Time to Relax bath bomb is a true escape from the stresses of real life. It really does give you the chance to put some time aside just to relax.

The bath water is silky smooth, and my skin laps it up, upon getting out of the bath my skin feels and looks hydrated. The relaxing scent lasts on my skin for a good few hours after getting out of the bath too.

Overall, I really enjoyed some much needed me-time made even more enjoyable thanks to the Time to Relax bath bomb. I hope to see more Epsom salt-based products in Lush’s future!

Salt Water Soother Magnesium Bath Bomb from Lush

Straight after Christmas 2022, Lush released a range of magnesium-based products. The new collection contains 3 magnesium massage bars and 2 Epsom salt bath-bomb-cubes. Today I am reviewing one of the Epsom salt bath-bomb-cubes, the Salt Water Soother Magnesium Bath Bomb.

The magnesium range was created with exercise and muscle recovery in mind as magnesium is said to have many benefits on your body before, during and after exercise.

While each of the magnesium products within this line have been made to help support exercise performance with a focus on your muscles and mind but you’ll be fine using them without exercising before/after too. 😉 *exhales a sigh of relief*

As a wheelchair user, exercise isn’t really my thing but anything that I can use that helps with aches and pains is a must try for me. The Deep Sleep Magnesium bath bomb is more focused on winding down after exercise, while the Salt Water Soother bath bomb is all about adding a spring to your step afterwards.

Epsom salt is very popular to use in hot baths to help with muscle pain, even though I don’t exercise as much as I’d like due to illness, I do get a lot of muscle pain. This is what drew me to the magnesium range and if I’m honest, pain relief is why I first got into Lush in the first place.

The Salt Water Soother bath bomb is cube shaped, 1 half of it is yellow and the other is blue. They are approximately 180g each so a little bit smaller than the average sized Lush bath bomb.

The Salt Water Soother bath bomb contains, peppermint, eucalyptus and spearmint oils. It has a super uplifting scent, just one sniff could wake the sleepiest of souls. The eucalyptus and peppermint in it are what my nose picks up on the most. I can see this bath bomb also being a good pick-me-up if you have a cold or worst still, a hangover!

As soon as the Salt Water Soother bath bomb touches the water you are greeted with a loud hiss. The yellow and blue colour that spills out of the bath bomb are bold and bright. Like the aforementioned bath bomb, Deep Sleep Magnesium, the Salt Water Soother is a very quick dissolver and didn’t create any bath art.

The Salt Water Soother bath bombs scent intensifies and engulfs your bathroom from the moment the bath bomb touches the hot water. Within just 2 minutes the Salt Water Soother bath bomb has fully dissolved leaving you with super soft, neon green bath water. This bath bombs star qualities are its scent and how it leaves you feeling both physically and mentally.

My skin lapped up the wonderfully soothing magnesium infused waters, it left my skin so incredibly soft and really did make a difference to my aching muscles. Laying back in its waters leaves me feeling energised and refreshed.

Overall, I loved everything about the Salt Water Soother bath bomb. Its scent and its ingredients really do leave my muscles soothed and ready to take on the rest of the day. Used in the morning it really does make a difference on how my day goes.

If you’re chasing a boost of energy in a nice and relaxing atmosphere, I couldn’t recommend using the Salt Water Soother bath bomb more. Although I no longer do much exercise, it really does put a spring in my step!
