I was so disappointed in this little guy. I had really high hopes for him. I had the sniffles this morning and popped it in the shower to try and refresh and clean the senses and dissipate the headache. However, as other reviewers have mentioned, it melted away pretty quickly and there was not a lot of scent that I could detect. Before placing it in the shower it was almost overpowering. In shower... I had to bend WAAAAAAAY over to smell a thing. It was a lovely smell, but doing yoga poses in the shower to get to it was less than ideal.

Well if the 8% approval rating doesn't deter you from buying this waste of money I hope my review will. This product is garbage! Actually it's worse than garbage. This shower bomb has NO scent. NONE. My shower has a gentle spray so I thought (wrongly) that this might work for me since some people noted it dissolved fast. It lasted through most of my shower but there was NO SCENT. I even picked it up a put it directly under my nose and there was just a teeny tiny smell of something..maybe.
I have to believe people will buy anything and LUSH has to know how bad they missed the mark with this POS and they still sell it. How this product is still on their website is beyond me. If there were a store near me I would have taken it back (I bought 3) . Worst LUSH product I have ever bought. Worst product I have bought period.
BTW I tried this as a bath bomb for my toddler and it still sucks. DONT BUY THIS!

What exactly is this stupid thing supposed to do...I left mine on the floor of the shower and it disappeared in 5 seconds....and i was taking deep breaths and i couldnt smell a damn thing.
it sucks. Got mine in an xmas hatbox, wasn't too convinced about these emotibombs so i never got them, and now, I never will.

I got this one in a Lush gift box.. I think it was called First Snow..? Anyway, emotibombs are a fun idea but it just doesn't work in reality. I'd love to have a wonderful smelling steamy long shower but the reality is that this washes away in about a minute and you can barely smell anything during that one minute. This however did surprise me with a refreshing minty scent which I didn't smell while sniffing the dry product. I's love for these to work..I'd even pay more if they really would work..But sorry, they don't. :(

In retrospect, I don't know why I bought this. The cute cartoony face? The nice man massaging salt scrub into my hand? The misguided hope I could stay up late on a week night and be bright the next morning?
It was over a year before I used it (I stored it in a baggie), and it smelled like jasmine at that point, so I guess the ellipsis was the important part of the item name.

My kids had their summer allergies flairing up, and I bought one of these. I put it in a hot bowl of water, and let the kids breathe it in that way. It seemed to help a bit. I put that I would not buy again, but I might depending on if it continues to work. I have not used it in the shower, just in a bowl of steamy hot water.

Where to begin:
In theory you're buying this to liven yourself up from a night of partying---or maybe if you're just looking for a quick wakeup in the shower.
In a word: Gross.
As you watch this $$ product literally melt down the drain, no matter where you put it, perhaps you lean in to desperately catch a whiff of this scent that promises to revitalize you...and it hits you. A weird barky, muddy, minty aroma that makes my usually strong stomach flip (and this was a sober test).
Yes, I'm sure you'd get more bang for your buck if you crumbled this into a bath, but you'd have to ask yourself if you want to smell like odd minty mud for a few hours.
So, pass it up, make yourself a bloody mary and go take a nap.

I went to the Lush store in Philly this week with a super bad cold. The SA noticed I had "the sniffles" and rushed me over to the Too Drunk Emotibomb promising it would clear my nose right up! She said it was exactly what I needed. Anyway I bought one and thought "Wow this is going to be awesome!! If it works I'm gonna buy a boatload of these!!". Well it didn't work. I've used those Sudacare Shower Soothers before and I have to say that they are a billion times better than Too Drunk. It barely created any scent but what I did faintly manage to sniff was gross fennel. Yuck! I will be going back to my cheaper and better Shower Soothers!!!

Hated the smell, got it in a gift set and it overpowered everything else with it's stench. I gave it away. I just have no use for something that appears to be nothing but an expensive, single-use, stinky candle. As I understand you don't even use this on your body, you just throw it on the shower floor and enjoy the scent? Ummm...no.
Edit - Ended up getting another one as a gift haha. So I tried this with the method a few other reviewers used, breaking it into 3 pieces (to get your money's worth) and putting one piece at the far end of the shower so that the water will slowly dissolve it. This method didn't work well for me either, it either did nothing or melted away quickly after a 2 second fizzing. The scent was somewhat more tolerable in the shower but certainly not enjoyable. Still would not repurchase.

I have used this in the shower but the smell goes away super fast. When I first smelled it in my hand it was super strong and I didn't quite like it, but in the shower with the steam it was much better. I would buy this again but I think it would work better as a bath bomb since the smell will linger longer (and I've used bath bombs before that have left my tub smelling like the bath bomb for at least a day after I've used it). Not as efficient in the shower but I would get again for use in the bathtub.

This is by far the worst LUSH product I've tried, I ordered it online and the scent was so strong that it made the box, all the popcorn packaging and even the bags of the other products smell! The smell was not particularly nice either, kind of an extremely overpowering herbal scent. i thought the smell might change when I used it but the smell satyed the same. I could'nt work out how to use this, i tried following the instructions LUSH gave and the bomb just dissappeared quickly and I also tried wetting it and placing it on a shelf but it just made a mess. I really would not buy this again.

I bought 4 of these in one go; two for my sister and two for myself. In Canada, they are $3.95 a piece, which does not seem like that much but adds up very quickly if you buy more than one! I was attracted to the idea that I could experience vaporous aroma therapy in my shower.
The instructions on the LUSH website tell you to place it over your shower drain- do not do that! I placed mine at the corner of my shower, then gently pushed the stream of water to the emotibomb. At first, this funny looking shower bomb fizzed to life and I could smell the scent of citrus, orange, and mint. However, the vapour therapy was short lived, it only takes a minute for the emotibomb to completely disintegrate and little scent is left behind. Like many others, I too was very disappointed with this product. I donít plan to try this out in my shower again seeing as 1 shower will cost me $4.
My sister had a little bit more luck than me, she broke off a third of Too Drunk, and placed it in her bath. The essential oils are so strong, you may even able to get away with just a quarter. She said the scent permeated her bathroom and left her skin smelling wonderful for hours. Perhaps this is best suited as a bath bomb.

I find these emotibombs to be a waste of money in general. While they all smell nice on the shower floor for a minute or two, they quickly melt right down the drain and you get to watch $4 literally melt away. They leave absolutely no scent in the bathroom once they have disappeared. Very cool idea....very poor execution.

I paid a pretty penny to buy this new product that is only available in England, not in the US (where I live) yet. This is the "Too Drunk..." scent, which is named after a Dead Kennedys song. What a waste! The concept is that you lay this on the shower floor and when the water hits it, it will fizz and turn into fragrant vapors (sound familiar? like the vaporizing Shower Soothers available for like $1 each at the drugstore?). This is supposed to be for people who don't have bathtubs, but still want a bath bomb experience. Since it fizzes and runs down the drain quickly, I thought I would plug the drain to keep it working longer, but my plan backfired. The fizz just melted away with all that additional water. Bottom line - my shower was barely scented. You're better off using this as a bath bomb, except beware that it is EXTREMELY strong in solid form.
