Sleepy Pill Mouthwash Tabs

There are certain Lush scents that spark much more of an interest than others: products and fragrances that have somehow earned a level of status that automatically makes consumers more invested in them than some of their (often better) counterparts. The Twilight/Sleepy scent family is one of those royal bundles, and when these mouthwash tabs first made themselves known, there was a big demand for them to be made widely available as soon as possible.

However, from the very second I opened my bottle of Sleepy Pill, I realised that something was terribly wrong: these mouthwash tabs didn't share the scent of Twilight or Sleepy, and they certainly didn't taste anything like they did either. Under the assumption that they were the same fragrance as the popular body lotion and shower gel, Lush fans had been scrambling after an item that didn't even hold their favourite scent.   

What I will say about Sleepy Pill is that the intensity of flavours here is definitely potent enough that the tabs will do the very opposite of putting you to sleep. In fact, the very first time I used one of these, I almost had to spit the tab out into the sink: the flavour was far stronger than I had initially envisaged it to be and it took me by surprise.

Containing lavender and fennel oil as the leading ingredients, the smell of these mouthwash tabs are a strong and very robust herbal aroma. Imagine having a fresh bundle of lavender tied tightly around your nose and you may begin to understand what Sleepy Pill smells like. It's naturally sweet and floral, yet there is also an underlying sharpness from the fennel oil that plays on these components and intensifies the smell.

When popping one of these into your mouth, it takes mere seconds for a very intense taste to develop and you may need to brace yourself for this. Imagine being made to bite down on some fresh lavender and what that would taste like, and you have now probably understood exactly what these tabs have to offer. Along with the fennel oil, which serves to intensify the taste and add a cool, refreshing twist, Sleepy Pill uses nature's finest to completely clean and overhaul your mouth.

To use a solid mouth wash tab, you simply crunch the tab between your teeth, take a slurp of water and begin swishing. Once you've finished, you then spit the water into the sink and your whole mouth should feel super clean and refreshed: ready to brace the rest of the day without worrying about smelly breath or food from your lunch remaining stuck between your teeth. It's recommended that you keep the mouthwash in your mouth for a good minute. This allows the ingredients to get to work at cleaning the mouth and deodorising the tongue so you get the maximum results possible.  

As you would expect from Lush, the ingredients that have gone into making all three of the mouthwash varieties have also been carefully crafted and serve a purpose. Firstly, they all contain sodium bicarbonate, which is a natural softening ingredient that is also known for its ability to clean and deodorise at the same time. This is a key component that will help to clean your tongue, gums and teeth when you're swishing, and will help to rid your mouth of any strong odours that might be present at the time, freshening your breath in the process.

Each of the mouthwashes also contains xylitol - a natural substance that is found in certain fruits and vegetables and is used in foods and cosmetics as a refined sweetener. This ingredient has been proven to cause none of the harmful effects that sugar can have on the teeth, is perfect for diabetics as it doesn't effect blood sugar levels at all, yet offers the sweetness to help give these tabs their interesting but enjoyable flavours.

The intensity of Sleepy Pill Mouthwash Tabs immediately cleared my palette, cleaned my tongue and left my whole mouth feeling squeaky clean. The dinner I had finished eating mere minutes before had been completely banished from my tastebuds and instead it had been replaced with a herbal combination of both lavender and fennel, which was strangely comforting.

While not a flavour I would initially been all that excited about, I actually enjoyed how natural they tasted and how clean my mouth felt after using one of these tabs. I can imagine that Sleepy Pill Mouthwash Tabs will still be super popular, even though they don't pertain the same aroma as the best selling body lotion. In fact, I'll be honest and say that I think these work better than what I imagine an actual Twilight-tasting mouthwash tab would do. I guess Lush do know best after all?
