Magical Santa Bath Bomb from Lush

The Magical Santa Bath Bomb is a brand-new, limited-edition product from Lush’s 2022 Christmas line. I believe it has been released as a replacement for the Snowman Dreaming bath bomb as on the Lush website it is described as a ‘festive rainbow maker’.

Not only is it a brand-new bath bomb it also has a brand-new fragrance, its scent is a sweet, sugary raspberry. It has sherbet elements to it too, I hope to see more products with its fruity-scent in the future as it’s a real treat for your nose.

The first thing I noticed about the Magical Santa bath bomb was its size, at approximately 150g it is a lot bigger than I had anticipated, I was expecting it to be a lot smaller, closer in size to the Sleepy Bear bath bomb.

Ingredients wise, the Magical Santa bath bomb contains – Sicilian lemon, rosewood, lemon myrtle and carrot seed oils. It also has both beetroot juice and raspberry powders in it too. As I said earlier, its scent is a real treat for your nose, even long before I’ve put it in the bath I can’t get enough of it…

As soon as you place the Magical Santa bath bomb into the water it starts to fizzle away, bright pink and warm orange foam slowly spills out of it as its gorgeous scent starts to fill your bathroom (or bedroom for me as that’s where my bath tub is.)

The Magical Santa bath bomb wasn’t quite as colourful as I’d hoped, especially when you take into account that it is meant to be one of Lush’s ‘rainbow bombs’ this however didn’t ruin my experience of it though, the pink, white, warm yellow and orange bath art it created was really enjoyable.

The photos I have included in this review of the Magical Santa bath bomb do it no justice at all, there wasn’t a huge amount of bath art but the little patterns it did create were very tricky to photograph, in the end I decided to just lay back and enjoy the show.

The water left behind by the Magical Santa bath bomb is a warm and welcoming shade of blood-orange. Its scent lasted throughout the whole bath and still lingered in the air long after the last bits of the bath water had gone down the plug hole. I found it really refreshing to be using a fruity-scented bath bomb that wasn’t strictly citrus.

The silky-smooth blood-orange water left behind by this bath bomb are really soothing on your skin. Magical Santa’s beautiful scent although subtle, also remains on your skin for a good few hours after you have got out of the bath.

Overall, I did enjoy using the Magical Santa bath bomb, I’d have maybe liked to see a few more colours from it but everything else performance wise was perfect. I hope Lush bring it back next year and I’d love to see more products with its scent in the future as well.

Snow Fairy Body Lotion from Lush

It’s hard to believe that it took Lush until 2022 to bring out the Snow Fairy Body Lotion. The scent seems to have been made into every other product format possible through the years.

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 Snow Fairy scent. The fact that all-things Snow-Fairy-scented are almost always exclusively pink is what always sells it to me. I wasn’t going to buy a pot of the Snow Fairy body lotion but after Lush sent me out a sample of it, I couldn’t help myself.

The most frequent question I have been asked about the Snow Fairy body lotion is how it compares to the Snow Fairy body conditioner.

The body lotion is a much lighter formula than the body conditioner equivalent, it’s just as hydrating but soaks in a lot quicker. I find a small amount goes a very long way which is always a bonus with Lush products, especially with the recent price increases of almost everything in the world right now.

The Snow Fairy body lotion isn’t my favourite of all the body lotions I have tried from Lush. I think my favourite out of the Winter body lotions will always be the Celebrate, Once Upon A Time and Calacas body lotions but it was nice to try something new.

The Snow Fairy body lotions bright pink colour was what won me over when it came to which Christmas products I’d be buying this year. I’m a true princess that can never get enough of anything if it’s pink.

As I said earlier, the Snow Fairy body lotion is hydrating, it’s scent on your skin isn’t as sickly sweet as other Snow Fairy products are, which is a good thing in my eyes as, as I’ve said many times before (especially with the sweet scents) sometimes less is more.

Overall, I am so pleased that I ordered a Snow Fairy body lotion, I probably won’t be buying another pot but only because I prefer other, fruity-scented body lotions more. If you are Snow Fairy crazy, I highly recommend buying yourself a pot of it though!

Golden Angel Bubble Bar from Lush

The Golden Angel Bubble Bar is a limited-edition product from Lush’s 2022 Christmas line.

With it sharing its scent with the Shoot for the Stars bath bomb (a bestselling Christmas product that never fails to return every Winter) I can see it being a popular choice to purchase.

Golden Angel is one of Lush’s smaller-sized bubble bars that weighs in at 120g. For comparison purposes, the all-year-round bubble bar, Brightside is 200g.

Yes, the Golden Angel bubble bar may be on the smaller side but if I’ve learnt anything from the hundreds of Lush products that I have tried, size doesn’t dictate the products quality, especially when it comes down to Lush’s bubble bars.

The Golden Angel bubble bar contains some of the following ingredients, bergamot, Ho wood and Brazilian orange oil. The Lush-scent-family that Golden Angel is a member of is called Honey I Washed the Kids and its scent is truly delicious.

Its scent smells just like honey with elements of yummy caramel in it too, it is mouth-wateringly good and always leaves me craving biscuits.

To use the Golden Angel bubble bar, I put broken up pieces of it into a sieve and let the running bath-water trickle over it. I find this sieve-method the most effective way to use the single use Lush bubble bars.

This method also happens to be the best way to ensure none of the product gets accidentally wasted and maximises the bubble bars bubble potential!

One of my favourite things about Lush’s bubble bars is that unlike their bath bombs, bubble bars can be spread out over several baths.

I think you can get 2 adequately bubbled bubble baths out of one Golden Angel bubble bar without it hindering the quality of it at all, I however used all of it in one bath, greedy but absolutely worth it.

It doesn’t take long for the blanket of fluffy white bubble to form once you run Golden Angel under the tap.

Underneath the blanket of fluffy, white bubbles the water is liquid-gold and is so incredibly shimmery!

Using all of a Golden Angel bubble bar in one bath made for one of the bubbliest baths I have ever had. It was a foam party for one and I do not regret over-indulging at all.

It left my skin feeling silky smooth and its gorgeous scent lasted on my skin for the rest of the day too. It left me smelling so good I was a little worried that someone other than my cat would try to lick me… 😉

Overall, I really enjoyed using the Golden Angel bubble bar. Lush do use the Honey I Washed the Kids scent a lot but whatever product format they put it in always works.

I’m unsure whether this bubble bar will return next year but if it does, I’ll be sure to buy another!

Partridge in a Pear Tree Bath Bomb from Lush

The Partridge in a Pear Tree Bath Bomb is a brand-new, limited-edition product from Lush’s 2022 Christmas line. With it sharing its scent with my favourite Lush body spray – So White/Once Upon a Time, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on a few.

There have been several bath bombs released since 2015 that share the same scent as Partridge in a Pear Tree but none of them (in my personal opinion) have ever topped another of my favourite products, the 2016 So White bath bomb.

I was therefore very interested to see if the Partridge in a Pear Tree bath bomb could live up to my favourite bath bombs hype.

The Partridge in a Pear Tree bath bomb is very similar decoration and colour-wise to the Rose Gold bath bomb, although I feel Partridge in a Pear Tree has a lot more shimmer.

It’s an orangey-red bath bomb decorated with a light coating of the most gorgeous golden shimmer.

All of Lush’s bath bombs are hand pressed and the mould for Partridge in a Pear Tree has quite an intricate design, it has an actual partridge in a pear tree on its front.

Clearly, it is visually a lot more impressive to look at than my beloved 2016 So White bath bomb, but my question is, will the bath art be as good?

The Partridge in a Pear Tree bath bomb contains some of the following essential oils; Bergamot, Brazilian orange, neroli and prickly pear. Alongside those oils you will also find rose and orange flower absolute as well as pear powder too.

The website claims that the bath bomb has a pear scent but also says that it’s a part of the Once Upon a Time scent family.

The Once Upon a Time, Lush-scent-family will always smell like crisp, freshly sliced apples to me. Delicious!

As soon as the Partridge in a Pear Tree bath bomb comes into contact with the bath water a burst of orange colour erupts from it, it begins to slowly fizz away, charging around the water surface like a shimmering orange speed boat.

It doesn’t take long for a stream of yellow to start coming out of the bath bomb too. Orange and yellow swirls begin to create beautiful bath art, the photos in this review do the bath bomb no justice at all.

It takes a good 10 minutes for the Partridge in a Pear Tree bath bomb to fully dissolve, the water it leaves behind is a glorious shade of orange and makes the water feel soft as silk, my skin laps up all of the bath bombs goodness, leaving it feeling super hydrated and oh-so-smooth.

Once you’re out of the bath (I really didn’t want to ever get out but had to when it started to get cold!) Partridge in a Pear Tree’s scent can still be smelt on your skin for the rest of the day. Seeing as it is my all-time-favourite Lush scent this left me very happy indeed!

Overall, I really enjoyed having a new bath bomb to try in this Lush scent, its bath art is a lot bolder than the Atom Heart Mother bath bomb (another more recently released bath bomb that shares the same scent) BUT I’m going to be mean and still claim it’s not as good as the So White bath bomb from 2016.

This is only because the bath art isn’t as striking. If I however look at Partridge in a Pear Tree as its own product with no comparison to others, it really is a wonderful bath bomb.

Out of all of this year’s Christmas line, I don’t think I want a bath bomb to come back any more than I do the Partridge in a Pear Tree bath bomb, next year. Lush, please don’t make the Partridge in a Pear Tree bath bomb a 1-year-wonder like you do so many other Christmas bath bombs, it’s fabulous and deserves a place in the Christmas line for many more years to come.

Sweet Pudding Bath Bomb from Lush

The Sweet Pudding Bath Bomb is a brand-new, limited-edition product first released as a part of Lush’s 2022 Christmas line. While it looks like a mix of the past Christmas bath bombs, the Luxury Lush Pud and The Golden Pudding, it doesn’t smell like either.

Sweet Pudding actually shares its scent with the Mr Loba Loba bath bomb.

Sweet Pudding is the average size Lush bath bomb at 200g (the same size as the best sellers, Twilight and Intergalactic)

This bright pink pudding-shaped bath bomb was one of the first of the new 2022 Winter products to catch my eye, pink will always be my favourite colour and after falling in love with the Mr Loba Loba bath bomb, I couldn’t wait to give another bath bomb sharing its same scent a go.

The Sweet Pudding bath bomb contains benzoin resinoid, tonka absolute and almond oil. Its scent is sweet and warming. It smells almost like a blend of vanilla with hints of some type of berry. The almond oil adds a slight nuttiness to its fragrance which rounds off the tonka absolute.

It is incredibly moreish, and I can see why Lush have re used the scent again in this bath bomb.

As soon as the Sweet Pudding bath bomb hits the water a burst of thick pink foam erupts from it, slowly the foam begins to thin out but the bright pink colour still spreads, both across the surface of the water and underneath.

I must admit, I expected a little more bath art out of the Sweet Pudding bath bomb, I imagined pink and white swirls that were quite similar to the bath art created by the, The Comforter bath bomb however bath art isn’t all that makes a bath bomb good…

The scent is probably my most favourite thing about this bath bomb, that and the colour it turns the bath water.

While it doesn’t create much bath art it does turn your bath water an incredibly inviting, bright pink. I much prefer it over the Snow Fairy bath bomb.

Sweet Pudding takes approximately 8 minutes to fully dissolve, the water it leaves behind is incredibly soft and left my skin feeling super hydrated and silky-smooth.

Once you’re out of the bath, Sweet Puddings scent can still be smelt on your skin for the best part of the rest of the day. Its scent also lingers around in your bathroom for a good few hours after using it too.

Overall, I really enjoyed the Sweet Pudding bath bomb. I would love to see it return next Christmas but sadly most of the new bath bombs in the Christmas line only get to see one Christmas.

If Lush don’t want to bring it back then I’d like to at least see the scent appear again, a shower gel equivalent would be divine!

Elf Shake Shower Gel from Lush

The Elf Shake Shower Gel is a brand-new release from Lush; It is a limited-edition product that is a part of Lush’s 2022 Christmas line. Taking into account its ingredients, I believe that its name is a play on an ‘health shake’. Changing health to Elf gives the shower gel the perfect Christmas twist. 😉

Elf Shake is an opaque, bright green shower gel. Its colour is almost identical to look at as the Glitch shower gel. On several occasions when I have been in a rush, I have mistakenly grabbed Glitch instead of Elf Shake and vice versa, not realising until after I had started to use it. They may look the same but really do have completely different, clearly identifiable scents!

Elf Shake has a thick but easy to get out of the bottle consistency, it could easily be classed as a shower cream instead of a shower gel.

Elf Shake contains a long list of fresh ingredients including, mint infusion, apple juice, grape juice, kiwi juice, lime juice, sweet wild orange oil and ylang ylang oil. Lush’s website describe it as a ‘sour gumball smoothie’.

I cannot compare its scent to anything released by Lush before, the ‘gumball’ element of the fragrance does make me think of last year’s Jolly shower gel a little BUT it is such a small amount of likeness that I almost didn’t want mention it.

If you like fruity scents that aren’t citrus-thick, Elf Shake may be a good option for you. The kiwi and apple juice in it are what my nose picks up on the most. It’s hard to describe, to me it smells like one of those super-healthy, bright-green smoothies (the pleasant on the tongue kind).

It’s mouth-wateringly good, the apple brings a crispness to it and the mint infusion rounds it off giving it a candy-cane like Christmas edge.

When it comes down to their newly released shower gels, Lush have really outdone themselves this year. As I have said in my previous 2022 shower gel reviews, Lush’s shower gel selection was in desperate need of new life and 2022 has been a brilliant year for Lush shower gels. Elf Shake isn’t my favourite from this year’s new releases, but it’s in my top 3. My husband really likes it and claims that it is the best shower gel Lush have ever released.

The Elf Shake shower gel lathers up easily and a very small amount of it goes a long way. If the rumours are true and Lush UK won’t be selling the seasonal shower gels in bottles come 2023, opting for capsules that you burst just before using instead, I will kick up a stink.

The best thing about all Lush shower gels is how such a small amount goes a long way, introducing just capsules will be such a waste. Not to mention how difficult capsules are to use for customers with bad hands due to illness or injury like me. BUT back to the thankfully, bottled Elf Shake…

…Once out of the shower the Elf Shake scent remains on your skin for the best part of the rest of the day, it also does a really good job of cleansing your skin, leaving it looking and feeling brighter. All of the fresh juice in it really does have an effect on you.

Overall, I love the Elf Shake shower gel, I have my fingers crossed that Lush UK don’t ruin their best year for shower gels yet by getting rid of the bottled shower gels come January 2023. 🤞

Jingle Bells Bath Bomb from Lush

This year the Jingle Bells Bath Bomb has made a return, it however has a very different scent from before. Jingle Bells now shares its scent with the Baked Alaska soap. – If you really miss the old version of the Jingle Bells bath bomb try the Toby’s Magic Cow bath bomb as it shares its scent with the older version of the Jingle Bells bath bomb.

The Jingle Bells bath bomb is unique to any other bath bomb currently available from Lush. It is hand pressed into a bell-shaped mould.

Inside of it is a small amount of open space (however, it’s not completely hollow) a small amount of loose bath bomb chunks is in this little pocket of space inside of Jingle Bells. If you shake the bath bomb, it’s just like a bell, although to me, it sounds closer to a maraca! 😉

The Jingle Bells bath bomb is white all over with a red bow on its top. Stars are etched into its top half while the bottom of it looks just like a mini circular-bell does, with 4 holes in a cross shape.

When the first version of the Jingle Bells bath bomb was released, it was a lot bigger, now it is the same size as the average sized bath bomb (as a reference, this is the same size as the bestselling Twilight and Intergalactic bath bombs).

Being honest, as always – I much prefer it in its smaller sized format. There’s not much difference between the 2 but I think the smaller bath bombs seem to give you the better bath art.

The Jingle Bells bath bomb contains lemon myrtle, ylang ylang and grapefruit oils. Its scent is a strong citrusy one, so strong that I can immediately smell it as soon as I walk into a room that it is in.

I’ve seen on the Lush website that quite a few customers have said its citrusy scent doesn’t fit in with the Christmas theme at all. I couldn’t disagree more, the scent is perfect for this time of year, it really wakes me up and we all know how hard it is to get out of bed on a cold Winters morning!

I’d go as far as to say it’s even more awakening than the Avobath bath bomb.

As soon as the Jingle Bells bath bomb meets your bath water there is an explosion of bright white foam. The first bit of colour to appear from it is from the red bow that sits on its top.

Slowly but surely. Red and white foam begin to make a swirling pattern as the Jingle Bells bath bomb dances around the water.

After a few minutes the red seems to dwindle a little, mostly white foam comes out of the bath bomb. Just as you think the bath art show is over blue foam bursts out of the bath bomb too.

Red, white, and blue spill out of the bath bomb as its bobs around your bath, my pictures do the pretty-bath-art that the Jingle Bells bath bomb creates no justice at all!

The colours clash so well making the patterns it creates really pop.

Underneath the bath art, your bath water begins to change colour, the water left behind is a beautiful shade of milky violet.

The Jingle Bells bath bomb is fully dissolved within 10 minutes. Its super awakening scent fills your bathroom, banishing away all of your Winter blues.

The milky violet water is also silky smooth, my skin laps it up; Normally the citrusy products don’t hydrate my skin as well as others, but my skin feels and smells fabulous after a good soak in a Jingle Bells bath.

Overall, I am really impressed with the new version of the Jingle Bells bath bomb, the scent is a huge improvement in my eyes, and I have my fingers crossed it comes back in next years’ Winter line too!

Sleepy Bath Bomb from Lush

The Sleepy Bath Bomb is a mini version of the giant-sized bath bomb, The Sleeping Giant. It shares its scent with The Sleeping Giant and also features the same super-exclusive, reusable glow-in-the-dark wax stars and moon. Although, the Sleepy bath bombs are ever so slightly smaller in comparison.

The masses will be pleased to hear that this bath bomb is yet another extension of the Sleepy scented range.

Lush’s Sleepy range is huge and because of its ‘magical sleeping properties’ happens to be one of Lush’s most sought after and best-selling scent families. You are most likely to recognise its scent from the bestselling products the Twilight bath bomb and the Sleepy body lotion.

The Sleepy bath bomb isn’t the easiest of bath bombs to get a hold of. At the time of posting this review it is exclusive to just 2 considerably expensive, Winter box sets – the 2021 Advent Calendar, and the Dreamland gift set.

It has also been available individually at Sleepy pop-up shops but again, these pop-up shops are only open for a few days and pop up in places at random.

If I was lucky enough to be near or at the right place at the right time, I’d have definitely purchased myself a few extra.

If the gift sets are a little out of your price range and you haven’t been lucky with a close-by Sleepy pop-up shop, a good alternative to the Sleepy bath bomb is the Sleepy Bear bath bomb. Sleepy Bear is also exclusive to this year’s Winter range, shares the same scent and is available to purchase individually everywhere.

What really sets the Sleepy bath bomb apart from the rest of the bath bombs is its 3 glow-in-the-dark reusable, wax stars, and moon shapes. We’ve had a glow in the dark soap before now (Ghost in the Dark) but nothing like these wax shapes that have been made to last indefinitely.

To activate the glow in the dark moon and stars simply have them sat in natural light so that they can charge, before using them.

The Sleepy bath bomb contains popping candy, lavender, brenzoin resinoid, tonka absolute and ylang ylang oils. Anything from the Sleepy range is perfect to use just before bed. The lavender and tonka absolute are the perfect ingredient to help you wind down after a long, hard day.

I don’t think I will ever get used to the products with popping candy in, even when I know they are featured in a product the first few snaps, crackle and pops always seem to take me by surprise, however, when using the Sleepy bath bomb I was really disappointed as it seemed to have hardly any popping candy in it at all. It popped 3 or 4 times and that was it.

Compared to this year’s Orange Pop bath bomb it was as if there wasn’t any popping candy in it at all.

The bath art that the Sleepy bath bomb creates is a mixture of purple, dark (almost grey) silver and gold swirls. It took a little longer than most bath bombs for the bath art to kick in but once it did, I was mesmerised. In ways, the bath art from the Sleepy bath bomb reminded me of the bath art the original Shoot for the Stars bath bomb used to create.

After using the Sleepy bath bomb its scent stays with you throughout the evening and even lasts on your skin for most of the next day. Not only do you benefit from its beautifully subtle scent hours and hours after using it, you also get soft, smooth and gloriously hydrated skin too.

I’m really sad that the Sleepy bath bomb is quite difficult to get a hold of as it’s a truly unique and spectacular bath bomb. Being honest, I would have liked to have seen a little more bath art from it but what it did create was pretty. It made a very welcome change to the aforementioned, same-old Twilight bath bomb.

I feel sorry for all of the hard-core Sleepy/Twilight fans that won’t get to give the Sleepy bath bomb a go because of how exclusive it is.

Hopefully Lush have a change of heart in-the-near-future and decide to make it easier to get a hold of. The reusable glow-in-the-dark wax stars really make this bath bomb, it’s such a unique idea and I will be keeping them for as long as they last!

Plum Duff Shower Gel from Lush

The Plum Duff Shower Gel has just been released as a part of Lush’s 2021 Winter line. It’s a brand-new product but not a brand-new scent. The Plum Duff scent has been brought back to life in this shower gel, I have only ever experienced it before in a sugar scrub format, several years ago.

Plum Duff is a rich, dark purple and has a thick but easy to get out of the bottle consistency. Colour and consistency wise it is very similar to the Plum Rain shower gel, apart from the colour, consistency and the word ‘Plum’ appearing in both of their names, this is the only things the shower gels have in common. Plum Rain and Plum Duff are not the same scent.

Plum Duff contains both cedarwood and tangerine oil as well as raisin infusion and benzoin resinoid.

Plum Duff’s scent is a gentle one with fruity and woody elements. The cedarwood rounds off the sweet and zestyness of the tangerine oil while the  benzoin resinoid adds an earthiness. Apparently, its name was inspired by a Christmas pudding, although I don’t know which one as I always eat chocolate puddings at Christmas!

As I said earlier Plum Duff’s consistency is thick but not so thick it’s hard to get out of the bottle. It lathers up in your hands easily and the fruity side of it really shines through when mixed with the hot water and steam of the shower.

I will admit that I wasn’t blown away with Plum Duff when I sniffed it straight from the bottle, but it grew on me once I’d tried it in the shower. Its scent although delicate did perk me up somewhat and a very small amount of it goes a very long way.

I couldn’t smell the Plum Duff shower gel on my skin once I got out of the shower, even when I over-indulged, using more than needed it didn’t seem to last. It did however leave my skin softer, almost as if the shower gel had an invisible exfoliant in. It cleanses skin well and leaves it hydrated enough to get away with not moisturising after your shower.

While the Plum Duff shower gel hasn’t got me as excited as past Winter shower gels such as Bubbly, Hot Toddy and Calacas, it did grow on me the more I used it. I can see it selling well to customers that prefer a more gentle scented shower gel.

In my opinion it isn’t very Christmassy either so I imagine it would also be popular with customers that aren’t quite ready to embrace Christmas 2021 just yet…

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.
