Deep Sleep 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 the Deep Sleep Magnesium Bath Bomb.

This new magnesium-based bath bomb is not to be confused with the Deep Sleep bath bomb also currently available. They however, both have the same dreamy scent so if you did enjoy the original Deep Sleep bath bomb, this magnesium version is definitely worth a try.

The magnesium range was created with exercise in mind. Magnesium is said to have many benefits on your body before, during and after exercise. These products have been made to help support exercise performance, recovery and to aid you into getting a more restful sleep. As a wheelchair user, exercise isn’t really my thing but ensuring I get a restful night’s sleep is right up my street!

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. The Deep Sleep Magnesium bath bomb was therefore, naturally the first product from the new magnesium range that I reached out for.

The Deep Sleep Magnesium bath bomb is cube shaped, 1 half of it is pink and the other is purple. They are approximately 180g each so a little bit smaller than the average sized Lush bath bomb but we all know size doesn’t matter… 😉

The Deep Sleep Magnesium bath bomb contains some of the world’s most relaxing ingredients; Lavender, chamomile and neroli. Its scent is both soothing and relaxing. Scent-wise my nose mostly picks up on the lavender, it’s a very sweet yet herbal scent.

As soon as the Deep Sleep Magnesium bath bomb touches the water you are greeted with a ferocious hiss. The purple and pink colour that spills out of the bath bomb are subtle in comparison to how bright the colours are in the actual bath bomb. I didn’t expect the Deep Sleep Magnesium bath bomb to be very foamy due to the Epsom salt and I was right.

The Deep Sleep scent intensifies and engulfs your bathroom from the moment the bath bomb touches the hot water. Again, due to the salt in the Deep Sleep Magnesium bath bomb it’s a very quick fizzer. Within 2 minutes the bath bomb has fully dissolved. There’s no bath art, this bath bombs star qualities are definitely its scent and how it leaves you feeling both physically and mentally.

My skin lapped up the wonderfully soothing, Deep Sleep Magnesium-infused-waters, it left my skin so incredibly soft and really did make a difference to my tired muscles. Laying back in its waters is like floating on a cloud.

Overall, I loved everything about the Deep Sleep Magnesium bath bomb. Its scent and its ingredients really do leave my muscles feeling lighter and my mind much calmer. Used just before bed it is perfect to help lull you into a truly relaxed state of mind. I’m a terrible sleeper so always grab products like this to use of an evening.

If you’re chasing a better night’s sleep, I couldn’t recommend the Deep Sleep Magnesium bath bomb more. Although I no longer do much exercise, I can tell how good it would be to use after a run or session at the gym. It’s magic on my tired, achy muscles after a long day.

I wish it existed back when I was at school as I could have really done with it the day after having a PE lesson!

Mr Sandman Dusting Powder from Lush


Mr Sandman Dusting Powder is yet another brand new Twilight scented product that has been welcomed with open arms by the Lush community.

I am a little disappointed that it appears to have replaced my all time favourite festive dusting powder, First Snow. I am however always more than happy to try a new Lush product and even more so when it is Twilight scented!

If you have read any of my previous reviews on the other various Twilight scented products, you’d know that the Twilight bath bomb was the very first bath bomb that I tried from Lush. I of course became bath bomb bonkers on first use and just under four years later, here I still am raving about it.

When I first got into Lush I had no idea that their products even had scent families. I just thought that the Twilight bath bomb was lavender scented. I had no idea of the complexity of ingredients chosen to go into each and every single product that Lush have on offer.


Mr Sandman’s scent family happens to be one of the biggest sellers for Lush. This is reflected in the huge amount of Twilight scented products that they have created.

This year in particular, Lush have well and truly spoilt the Twilight fans with lots of new, never before released items. We have had the Twilight Shower Jelly in the Lush Kitchen and right now the Twilight and Luxury Lush Pud bath bombs are available to purchase as are the Sleepy body lotion and the Mr Sandman dusting powder. They have even re-released the much loved Twilight shower gel for the festive period in their flagship store in London, Oxford Street.

I’d say that the majority of newbie Lushies do not have any idea on the amount of products they actually do. When you say ‘Lush Cosmetics,’ the first thing that people say is ‘Oh the bath bomb shop?’ Once you’re hooked on the bath bombs that’s when you begin to explore what other products they have.

Mr Sandman is a dusting powder and is used in the same way as a talcum powder, it is applied all over the body after washing and/or moisturising or for a quick refresh in between.

Its purpose is to absorb your skin’s excess oils while also adding an extra layer of fragrance to your skin. After applying Mr Sandman my skin is not only fragranced with the Twilight scent but is also smooth to the touch. It makes your skin feel silky soft and works wonders in areas of your body that are prone to sometimes get excessively sweaty such as under your boobs. Although it’s not an antiperspirant it does help keep sweat away for a little longer than when you go without.

Some people may be put off by Mr Sandman as it does have a small amount of lustre in. Back when I first got in to Lush I was a lustre sceptic I however now know that it’s really nothing to worry about. It’s the same type of shimmer that you’d find in make up such as a highlighter or bronzer. It adds a slight gleam to your skin and I honestly don’t even notice if a product has it in or not anymore, either way it doesn’t bother me.


Pairing Mr Sandman up with Lush’s other new Twilight scented product Sleepy Body Lotion is a force to be reckoned with, this simple Lush cocktail aids restful sleep that makes Maleficent’s sleeping curse look weak.

The carefully selected ingredients that lull you into a relaxed state of mind, which in turn aids restful sleep are lavender, chamomile, tonka absolute and ylang ylang. Although I can’t give Mr Sandman or Sleepy all of the credit, every time I have used them both together, I have been able to drop off to sleep much quicker and easier, which is a huge deal for me considering that I had previously struggled to fall asleep full stop.

Over all I am very impressed with the Mr Sandman dusting powder, I was a little shocked at its high price however now I have used it I know it is worth every penny.

Sleepy Head Massage Bar from Lush

Sleepy Head Massage Bar.pngThe Sleepy Head Massage Bar is unlike any other that I have had the pleasure of using before. Whenever it is a part of the Lush Kitchen menu I always jump at the chance to get hold of some.

When my very first Sleepy Head Massage Bar arrived I was amazed by how big it was. It’s called a massage bar but looking at it and feeling its weight in my hand makes me think that the term massage ‘brick’ would be a better and more fitting description.

As a diagnosed insomniac anything with the word ‘sleep’ in it catches my eye. Although (thanks to the help of my doctors) my sleeping abilities have improved somewhat, the whole getting enough sleep issue still sits at the back of my mind niggling away. I am very conscious that sleep is an essential part of life and that it is also the key to staying healthy. I used to go days and days without sleep, I don’t even know how I managed to get to work and then how I managed to last the day, week, month. You just do. No sleep however has a knock on effect and it is one that catches up on you all too late.

For people like me, sleeping isn’t a talent we have. Introducing essential oils and Lush Cosmetics into my daily routine has however been a game changer. I’m a huge fan of lavender oil simply because of its soothing properties. It is an extremely versatile essential oil and is useful for a number of things. Being both soothing and antiseptic it is marvellous for skin complaints such as sunburn and insect bites. It is also not just soothing for your skin, lavender is also my go-to-night-time essential oil because it helps clear and calm your body of negativities and stresses, slowly helping you to ease into the right frame of mind for a restful and good nights sleep.

The Sleepy Head Massage Bar lathers up very quickly, with its generous amount of cocoa and shea butter it makes for a real treat for thirsty, weather abused skin.

Its gentle lavender and ylang ylang scent stays with you hours after you have massaged it into your skin. Although as an insomniac I am not the best person to ask whether it made a difference to my sleep pattern, I do know that it helped me drop off to sleep quicker than I would have if I hadn’t have used it at  all. It pairs perfectly with the Lush Spa temple balm.

The lavender in it is useful in both winter and summer therefore making it a perfect massage bar no matter what time of the year it is!
