Lush Ickle Baby Bot
Advantages: does what its supposed to do, looks nice, smells lovely
As I mentioned in my first Lush review yesterday, I'm a little bit addicted. I spend quite a lot of money a month in there which can be quite expensive (even though recently I've begun to love their website sale of the Christmas goodies!). I brought the Lush Ickle Baby Bot along with Creamy Candy bubble bar and a pot of Love Lettuce face mask.
The Ickle Baby Bot is actually aimed at Children, tricking them into a 'sleep aid' bath with a friendly blue robot. Which leads me onto the bath ballistic itself. The robot is a pale blue robot shape (obviously) with individual square sections and a smiley cute little face. I quite like how the name 'Baby Bot' came from the idea of it soothing your babys bot - obviously as it has the soothing ingredients to send your little one to sleep.
I don't have any children of my own, but I still love this bot as I often have trouble sleeping when I'm stressed from studying and work - plus the robot is very cute. The ingredients list includes lavender and chamomile. I did expect more 'relaxing' ingredients but I'm guessing they weren't really needed because these worked perfectly fine. It is 65g which fits comfortably in my palm and can be used in half if you wish, thats what I have done and it was plenty!
Anyway to use this ballistic is like most of the others. You simply drop it under a running tap and let it fizz until its completely dissolved. It did dissolve quite quickly and didn't leave the broken bits at the bottom like I found with some others. It also had a very herbal fragrance in the air, with milky very pale blue water which was lovely.
During and after my bath I did feel very relaxed, my skin also felt softened and very refreshed which is what Lush says will happen after this bath. I didn't really expect for it to actually make me tired enough to want to sleep though. Within an hour of my bath, I was tucked up in bed and fast asleep through to the next morning and woke up feeling very alert and calm.
In conclusion, this is a gorgeous bath product from Lush which worked wonders for sending me to the land of nod. It was also smoothing and moisturising, which is perfect for more than just children. I can see how it would help a child at bath time and love that they have given children products in their shop which appeal.
The Ickle Baby Bot costs £1.85 and I think its worth every penny. You can purchase one in Lush stores or online from www.lush.co.uk
The ingredients are:
Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Lavender Oil, Sandalwood Oil, Chamomile Blue Oil, English Angelica Root Oil , *Limonene, *Linalool, Perfume, Colour 42053, Colour 42090
The ballistic is suitable for vegans too - like most of the Lush products.
