Lush Ickle Baby Bot Bath Bomb Review

For Matt and I, it's a real treat to have a bath bomb from LUSH. If money wasn't an issue, or even if there was just a little bit more disposable income, then we'd probably use them regularly but as it stands, they are a luxury afforded to us for special occasions only. Mini, on the other hand, hadn't had the good fortune yet but thanks to the Ickle Baby Bot bath bomb we picked up in our local store last week, his luck was about to change!

In case you're not familiar with the product itself and are stressing that we willingly used harsh bath products on a toddler's skin, the LUSH website describes Ickle Baby Bot as follows:

A gentle lavender bath bomb to relax children before bedtime. This is a bath bomb designed to look after young children’s delicate skin, and is so gentle it’s suitable for babies over six months. Its aromatherapy oils also work to soothe irritable cherubs before bedtime. Lavender is a calming aromatherapy oil, used in traditional medicine to treat skin irritations, sunburn and insect bites.

See, no drama! It's designed with the sensitivities of young skin in mind and honestly it was glorious. As far as smells go, the Ickle Baby Bot wasn't as harsh on the nose as many of the other bath bombs that LUSH sell but I suspect that's the point since it's a bath bomb for kids.

So what did our Mini think of it? Well, he was fascinated by the cute little blue robot in both its solid and disintegrating states and he giggled gleefully as it bubbled, fizzed and turned his bath water a lovely aqua blue colour.

For us, the novelty wore off quite quickly as its effects were pretty tame in comparison to the bath bombs we would use but Mini loved the fact that his water was suddenly blue.

Unfortunately, he was so intrigued by the colour of the water that he decided to dip his face into it which he found hilarious. I struggled to stop him from trying to do it again so we ultimately had to cut bath time short for his own safety but luckily I'd already scrubbed him clean!

Since I've never spoken about Mini's bath routine before, here are a few other products we like to use:
  • Child's Farm Hair and Body Wash in Sweet Orange
  • ASDA Little Angels Bath Sponges
  • Aveeno Daily Moisturising Body Wash
  • ASDA Little Angels Vapour Bath
  • Cien Kids Extra Gentle 2-in-1 Shampoo in Strawberry
Although I didn't include it in my Autumn bucket list, Matt and I are hoping to test out some of LUSH's Halloween range next month so with a little bit of luck he'll be bringing home a spooky little something a few days after payday and then I'll be back with another review! Until then, what's your favourite LUSH or baby bath product? Let me know in the comments!
