Illumibowl **REVIEW**

Illumibowl **REVIEW**

I like gadgets.

I also get up for a loo in the night, mainly as my two girls tend to wake me up. Kids! Who would have them eh?

So put these two things together and what am I talking about. Illumibowl. A fabulous little device that can make your life a lot easier at night when stumbling around for the toilet.

It does as it sounds; illuminates the toilet bowl so you can see where you are going when you need to spend a penny.

It fits very neatly under the toilet bowl and is activated by motion. It is pretty sensitive too and can detect motion up to a few metres. You can set it quite simply to light up in one colour, or it cycle through the eight available. It can be dimmed to suit your preference too. After you have finished and gone, the light switches off after two minutes.

It also automatically stays off if there is any light to save the batteries.

So what did we think?

It is VERY cool.

We were going to place it in the toilet where my little one goes in the night but the light from her sister’s nightlight kept it off. We decided to keep it for ourselves and put it in the en suite.

It really made a difference, as I am often feeling for the sink, which is next to the toilet, so I know where I am. It would be very useful for anyone who struggled a bit and was at risk of tripping or falling in the night. No one wants to switch the main light on, for fear of waking themselves and others up.

I loved the variety of colours and the glow the light gave. It made a very pleasant bathroom break during the night. I did like how it could be dimmed too.

As I said, it is just nifty! Imagine your visitors? They would love it and be suitably impressed with your bathroom facilities.

And you lovely readers are in luck!

  31. Jo Carroll

    Saves waking everyone up at night by switching on bathroom light and gets the bombing target lit up for final approach 😉 (cue Dambusters music)

  32. Karen Usher
    May 4, 2017 / 8:45 pm

  35. Nicola S
    May 4, 2017 / 11:31 pm

    I’d love one of these in the en-suite. So cool! My son would be desperate to have it in the main bathroom so there would be a bit of a battle!

  36. Rebecca Nisbet
    May 4, 2017 / 11:37 pm

    this would encourage my daughter to not be so scared when she goes to the toilet at night.

  40. Sheena Batey

    Great so I don’t have to put the main light on in the middle of the night and risk waking my husband.

  41. Lorraine Kirk
    May 5, 2017 / 10:35 am

    A great idea for the all of the men in the house with no sense of direction

  42. Alice Dixon
    May 5, 2017 / 11:48 am

    This would be great for the family bathroom, ideal for when my son gets up in the night to use loo

  43. Kim M

    Would love the purple one x

  44. Rachel
    May 5, 2017 / 8:28 pm

    These look great – my little boy is too scared to go to the toilet during the night because it’s too dark so this would solve that problem!

  45. Janice Dunn
    May 5, 2017 / 10:22 pm

    Fab invention. I get really dazzled during the night if I have to put the light on and find it really hard to get back to sleep afterwards. No excuses now

  46. Ema J Lowe
    May 6, 2017 / 3:35 pm

  55. marie miles
    May 8, 2017 / 9:19 pm

    i think its a good idea as my little grand daughter is currently at potty training stage and my daughter does tend to wake her once in the night (before my daughter goes to bed) so it would be really great to have here at my home as my grand daughter stays over every weekend. and would be great to have as im a house full of males so would be great for their night time aims,

  56. Fiona Rennie
    May 9, 2017 / 9:12 pm

  74. Sandra Fortune

  75. Emma Louise Elliott
    May 15, 2017 / 4:01 pm

  76. claire griffiths

  80. sharon stanley
    May 16, 2017 / 11:21 am

    This would definitley be handy of a nightime when the landing and bathroom usually have the lights on once kids have been to the loo during the night. It might also stop my other half peeing on the seat. Great giveaway 🙂

  81. Susan B
    May 16, 2017 / 2:04 pm

    What a great idea especially for children who are frightened of the dark.

  82. Philip Rogers

  90. Hayley Todd
    May 17, 2017 / 1:35 pm

    I have never seen these before! They are such a fabulous idea. It’s perfect for both my girls as they regularly get up to use the bathroom at night and it would save us having to put the lights on, which has a tendancy of waking them up properly, making the chances of them going back to sleep very minimal!

  91. Petra Hora
    May 17, 2017 / 3:04 pm

    It looks great.

  92. Fiona Fuller
    May 17, 2017 / 4:45 pm

    what a brilliant idea! My boys are terrible for leaving all the lights on in the middle of the night when visiting the toilet.. this is a brilliant alternative!

  93. Kim Neville
    May 17, 2017 / 6:55 pm

    This would be perfect for my OH and son when they go to the toilet in the night and it is a nice glow rather than a bright light

  94. Mark Whittaker
    May 17, 2017 / 7:47 pm

    I love these , practical and strangely functional , which I never thought I’d say about a toilet light !

  95. Tammy Neal

    May 17, 2017 / 9:13 pm

    Brilliant, what a great idea. Always put the light on in case I fall over the dog who likes to lay at the top of the stairs and being a labrador cross he’s easy to fall over.

  99. Sian Buckingham
