Sleepy bath bomb

This is one of many products only available in the Christmas 2021 Advent Calendar gift set.

Lush Uk had a Sleepy pop up event in September October 2021 time frame. They had many exclusive Sleepy products not available in stores. This Sleepy bomb was one of them. Lush Uk decided to add it to the Christmas Advent Calendar gift set as an exclusive amongst all the other goodies in the calendar gift set.

See below for my 3 minute Tub Demo Video.

Sleepy bomb reminds me of the Lush Uk ‘Sleeping Giant’ bath bomb. I think Sleepy bomb is a miniature version of it.

This Sleepy bomb has such a gorgeous periwinkle blue color! 😍

Sleepy is a quiet, slow melting kind of bomb, not the fast fizzing type.

It looks like some kind of melting blackberry dessert doesn’t it? 😊

There’s a bit of very dark blue almost black color inside the bath bomb that’s surprising.

There are multiple colors in here, violet, lilac, black, gold. Lots of bath art opportunities 😄

The gold is actually shimmery stuff. And the gold shimmer gets dispersed in the purple water and it’s just beautiful.

I’d rate this a 5 out of 5 rating.

These aren’t like the Lush halloween 2021 products which glow under UV light. These are glow in the dark. Here is what the stars and moon look when you turn off the lights.

Some folks were asking me what these moon and stars are made out of. Many folks thought they were a bath melt as i did, but they are made out of what feels like plastic. They don’t melt.

Twilight

This above is ‘Twilight’ bath bomb sold in Lush stores. The ‘Sleepy’ bomb is the same scent. Both made with floral Ylang Ylang , Sweet creamy Tonka bean, and Bright herbal Lavendar. I asked the creator Alessandro and he stated that ‘Yes. They are the same scent’, just different names. Not complaining. I’d love to use both of these in a bath cocktail. Unfortunately there is only one in the Advent Calendar gift set.

You Shall Go to the Ball

5 out of 5 see my 3 minute Tub Demo Video below

Looking like Cinderella’s carriage, i love the new Strawberry scent. Its different than any other Lush strawberry scent. Its almost like they mixed lush rose jam and lush strawberry twin tub jelly. Those notes mixed together.

I don’t think i’ve ever seen any Lush bath bomb that was so intricately designed. And the color combination of that shade of pink with a beautiful dusting of gold.

Ingredients

Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, DRF Alcohol, Perfume, Sicilian Lemon Oil, Tonka Absolute, Soybean Flour, Water (Aqua), Titanium Dioxide, Talc, Sodium Coco Sulfate, Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Dipropylene Glycol, Propylene Glycol, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Tin Oxide, Coumarin, Geraniol, *Limonene, Colour 47005:1, Colour 45410:1, Colour 45410:2, Colour 45410, Colour 15850:1, Colour 77491, Colour 17200

After my bath i ordered 3 more of this bath bomb. Who knows. i might buy more right before they go away in January.

This is a slow melty foamed type of bath bomb. I love that type. Those usually have the best bath art.

I noticed that this has pink shimmer in the water as well as gold shimmer! It doesn’t stick to your skin which is good. It’s not the most glitter i’ve seen in a lush bath bomb but it’s not the least amount either.

The pink and yellow combine to make a deep orange colored water, with pink and gold sparkles.

Twilight bath bomb

5 out of 5

Lush introduced this bath bomb around 2008 or 2009. That’s when i had my first Twilight bomb. The name comes from the time there was a very popular new movie called ‘Twilight’.

When Lush first made their Twilight bath bomb it was very popular with Lushies, and its maintained the same popularity ever since.

Not only does it look like the night sky (twilight) with stars and moons on the outside of the bomb, it also makes two different colors in the tub as it dissolves; pink and blue, but it also has a beautiful silver shimmer in the water. The blue and pink eventually mix in the water to become a lavender color.

Then there is the scent. Its a genius mix of bright herbal fragrance of lavender which promotes relaxation and sleep but there is also Tonka bean which smells similar to vanilla bean but tonka is more of a caramely scent. Then lastly there is the lovely floral notefrom the ylang ylang flower. The twilight fragrance is only subtley sweet and comforting.

Its such a gorgeous scent that Lush has used in many other products that i’ll list below which they have made. I also show these products in my scent family photos below.

Lush has recently (in 2020) changed the name from Twilight to ‘Sleepy’. The reason they changed it may have somethibg to do with the movie’s copyright s.

But the President/CEO of Lush said that sleepy is the same scent as twilight, only the name has changed.

Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Cream of Tartar, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Lavender Oil, Benzoin resinoid, Tonka Absolute, Ylang Ylang Oil, Cocamide DEA, Lauryl Betaine, *Coumarin, *Linalool, Perfume, Colour 42090, Colour 14700, Colour 17200, Colour 45410, Iridescent Glitter

Lush Times: Everyone seems to be in love with twilight at the moment. Whether it’s the film series or that enchanting period betwixt day and night, we can’t work it out. If you’re stressed out and feeling like a member of the un-dead, this relaxing ballistic will stake all of your troubles and scatter them to the winds with scents of lavender and Ovaltine.

Ghostie

5 out of 5 rating. See my Tub Demo Video Below.

This bath bomb is new for Halloween this year.

It has an array of colors inside this white bath bomb.

This has a citrus scent made with lemongrass, lemon and lime. Iys the same ecent as the Lush ‘You’ve Been Mangoed’ bath oil solid. Its not a sweet citrus scent. Its very tart.

You’ve Been Mangoed

Its a new ghost design.

Ingredients

Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Popping Candy, Titanium Dioxide, Lemongrass Oil, Sicilian Lemon Oil, Persian Lime Oil, Cream of Tartar, Water (Aqua), Talc, Cornstarch, Sodium Coco Sulfate, Dipropylene Glycol, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Propylene Glycol, Tin Oxide, *Citral, *Geraniol, *Limonene, *Linalool, Perfume, Colour 42090:2, Colour 77491, Colour 42090, Colour 45410:2, Colour 45410, Colour 45410:1, Colour 15850:1, Colour 17200, Colour 77499

Heres what it looks like under UV light.

It makes a gradient of pink, blue and purple foam. GORGEOUS!

The end result is a periwinkle blue water with silvery blue spakles.

The Lakes

4 out of 5 rating

This is a new exclusive bath bomb made for the August 2021 Lush Kitchen Subscription box.

Lush New Exclusive bath bomb ‘The Lakes’.
Inspired by Taylor Swift.


This has a brand new scent. It’s an earthy, incensed, green scent made with osmanthus, oak moss, myrrh, and siberian fir needle.


It’s a slow, melty foamy bomb. It’s a mint green with flecks of pink in it and fine silver shimmer in it.

The scent stays on my skin long after i dry off and get dressed. It’s a subtlety earthy, sensual scent.

I like this bomb. It’s a different color for Lush and a different scent. It’s not a sweet scent but an earthy green one. Kind of like the classic lush green scents.

Sakura

3 out of 5 rating

See my tub demo video below

A photo of the Sakura i bought in 2021

Mimosa in the moonlight. I knew this smell right away, I used to walk around these trees at my fathers house that had the fuzzy lavender colored flowers on it and the smell was heavenly. A sweet yet powdery flower the mimosa. It is lavender in color and fuzzy like a soft pink brush. Sometimes it smells like a light melon scent too. Mimosa is what the “Sakura” ballistic is scented with. This has no color in the water.

a picture of the Sakura i bought in 2005

Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Perfume, Sea Salt, Lemon Oil, Mimosa Absolute, Orange Blossom Absolute, Jasmine Absolute, Gardenia Extract, FD&C Red No. 4, FD&C Blue No. 1

Lush 2006 description: Sakura is the japanese name for cherry blossom which aptly describes this pretty pale pink ballistic. Sakura is dappled with bursts of pale green that rise up to a bright pink and green layer of exfoliating sea salt at the top of the bomb

This has been one of Lush’s regular year round bath bombs since 2004 or so. And its still sold in stores today.

Its a fast dissolving fizzing type of bath bomb, not a slow, melty, foam typeof bomb. It has a lovely floral scent with blue and pink salt crystals on the top.

There’s one or two more products in this scent family that arent in my group picture.

Snowball (Yukigassen)

This has a pretty light dusting of white glitter only here and there on the outside of the bomb. However i wasnt able to see any glitter in the water to speak of.

This is so refreshing, and the blue color is so.pretty. ididnt see a whole lot of glitter in the water though.

Im sorry about the noise of the wind in the video, it was VERY windy when i took this bath. 😊

Snow Fairy Lights

How to store: 
Keep cool and dry before you are ready for a sweet-scented light show.

Did you know?
Over 25 years ago we invented the bath bomb. Our fizzing bicarb beauties provide an immersive aromatherapeutic bathtime like no other. All this and no packaging too…

Summer Blues

4 out of 5

A beautiful, fresh floral scent.

This is up for the vote for the September 2021 subscription box. 🤞🏽

This is rare. Lush has never remade this since it was originally sold in 2004. Not even in the previous incarnation of the Lush Kitchen. I pray this gets enough votes. 🙏🏼


This is (was) a lovely powdery, Summer floral bath bomb available in the UK and in some NA gifts. Lots of pretty, tiny blue flower petals in this one. Summer Blues also turns the water a pale blue.

Lush used to make a liquid bath oil called Dreaming of Summer and this was the precursor to Summer Blues bomb. I love having them together but if you don’t like bits in your bath (and on your skin if you use the bath oil with it.) then you can simply put the bomb in a pop sock or a kitchen seive, as just the smell and water color is worth it. Here is a picture of the Dreaming of Summer bath oil.

Summer Blues’ fresh scent lasts on the skin longer than most Lush scents too. It’s a similar fresh, spring air scent that is in Lush’s “Oxeo Cube” deo and “Tiptoe Thru The Tulips” soap. I don’t usually combine these with anything.

Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Perfume, Blue Mallow Flowers, Larkspur Flowers, Cornflower Petals, Rose Absolute, Orange Blossom Absolute (Citrus dulcis), Lemongrass Oil, Jasmine Absolute, Colour 42045.

Lush Times Summer 2004 description: Drop this in the bath and you’ll get a blue pond full of three kinds of blue flower petals, scented with soothing rose, calming and reviving orange blossom, relaxing jasmine and lemongrass to lift your spirits. It’s like buying a ticket and hopping on the magic bus to a warm, summer garden. Float in a warm bath of flowers and you’ll discover that the Summer Blues Bath Ballistic is one of the fastest ways to rid yourself of winter miseries.

Sleepy Bear

3.5 out of 5 rating. Having the Lush Sleepy/Twilight scent. See my relaxing 3 minute Tub demo video below.

Tiny purple Lavender petals which Lush has coated in purple bath oil. I love when Lush is innovative.

I’m going to use it in the next couple of days and will record a Tub Demo Video of this Sleepy Bear so we can see what it does in the tub and what color it makes.

I would rate this a 3.5 out of 5 rating
It’s cute, it has the Sleepy lavender, ylang ylang and tonka bean scent.
It has oatmeal in it for soothing the skin.
It doesn’t color the water.
No glitter.

Rangoli Dreams

5 out of 5 rating (WOW) See my TubbDemo & Scent description video below.

The first time i saw this, on a lush store instagram account, and i thought to myself ‘oh my God what a beautiful bomb.’

Lush description: Watch colours of orange, red and gold glide across your bath as you sink into skin softening waters with rice starch and coconut milk powder. Lie back and listen to the firework-like crackle whilst you inhale the scent of decadent floral rose and rich cardamom.

Rangoli is an art form originating in the Indian subcontinent on certain holidays, in which patterns are created on the floor or a tabletop using materials such as powdered lime stone, red ochre, dry rice flour, coloured sand, quartz powder, flower petals, and coloured rocks.

The smell is delicate, but GORGEOUS. Pure rose, cardamom (which i love), mandarin oil, almond essential oil, coconut powder, benzoin. It a delicate, softly sweet rose, a drop of fragrant and yummy cardamom and a half drop of almond essential oil.

As it starts foaming and dissolving a lovely striped pattern of gold, orange and red foam appeared. The popping candy is slow popping, it doesn’t distract from the poetic loveliness of this bomb.

I don’t know why i took it out to set it on the side of the tub and take a picture. But here’s that. 😄

This is a slow melter type of lush bomb. I love the gradient colors of foamy stripes in my photo below.

Golden glitter appears in the water when the bomb is all dissolved.

It’s altogether lovely, romantic, festive and yummy.

I need to buy 7.

Golden Pudding

Its alright. Its certainly pretty. I like when Lush changes it up sometumes. For instance Lush made tge Luxury Lush Pud one year with the twilight scent and one year with the Comforter scent. I liked surprises like that. But…. This wasnt just changing the scent of something. This is melding the look of two completely different bath bombs. Which can be fun. Except when they replace the mermaid blue and gold water of Golden Wonder to a peach colored water with no sparkle.

Lush has released the ‘Golden Wonder’ bomb for Christmas every year for the past 10+ years. Why? Because its very popular. Whats not to love, it was a gold present.

So while i like a change i do wish they would bring the two original bombs back next Christmas 2022.

This is to replace the Golden Wonder Christmas bomb which has been sold every year for Christmas for the last 15 years or so. It looked like a gold Christmas present. And it had the Lush Champagne Snow Showers/Celebrate scent, which is a fizzy grapefruit or orange scent.

This Golden Pudding is like if Lush Luxury Pud and Golden Wonder had a baby.
