Let’s talk toilets! 🚽

It’s all fun and games until your gag gift turns into one of the most practical purchases you’ll ever make for your home. 🙌 We’re sharing how this toilet light will totally transform your bathroom by accident (no pun intended 🤣) with the LumiLux Toilet Bowl Light from Amazon.

LumiLux Toilet Bowl Light $14.25 (regularly $14.95)

There’s going to be a party in your bathroom every night with this toilet rim light! It has a built-in motion sensor that detects body heat and will illuminate itself in your toilet when entering the bathroom. Plus, it will shut itself off when you leave! 🙌

It’s great for all family members (including the kiddos!), super easy to install, and sheds new light on using the bathroom at night. 😏

Our friend Kimberly bought this light as a joke but now absolutely loves it! Here’s what she shared with us:

“I originally bought this light as a practical joke for my boyfriend and it ended up being the MOST practical purchase I ever made! I ended up buying more for my house!

I love that they’re motion sensor activated – no more plug-in night light needed! And now when the kids walk into the bathroom at night, the motion sensor turns the toilet light on, lights up the bathroom, and the boys don’t miss! Totally winning over here! 🙌”

Here are some other things we’re loving about this toilet light:

    • Maximizes battery light by shutting off in the presence of other light.
    • It has 16 total LED colors.
    • 5 different levels of brightness for the perfect luminance.
    • A flexible arm allows it to fit universally on any toilet.
    • Comes with a Lifetime Warranty, so if anything goes wrong, you’ll get another one totally free!

Still on the fence? Here’s what other reviewers are saying about it:

“Calming, beautiful, functional, and very much needed. It’s strangely satisfying to enter into the bathroom in the dead of night and see the brilliant blue light glowing from between the lid and the seat. And to lift the lid and be greeted by a welcoming portal of soft brilliant light to guide you to intended target; magic.” – Frankie ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

“I bought this for my kids’ bathroom so they can see the toilet better at night and the amount of light at night is perfect! It’s been 8 months and it’s still working just as great as day one. I’ve only had to replace the batteries once with daily use. I think it would also be great to travel with since hotel bathroom tends to be so bright – this would allow the perfect amount of light.” – Jill ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

“Our friends had one of these so we had to have one too. We love it and even the grandkids love using it. I have even purchased 2 more for gifts. With a lifetime warranty on the product, you can’t even go wrong!” – Rob ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

    Yes, I have had these in my bathrooms for years now, I got them from bed Bath and beyond they are fabulous…!!👍✌️

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Awesome! Thanks so much for commenting!

  2. sgreenlee

    We received one of these in Dirty Santa this year and laughed and laughed. My husband jokingly put it in our daughter’s bathroom and she loves it! It actually turned out to be a GREAT ADDITION! Lol!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      How neat! Glad to hear it has been a hit! Thanks for sharing!

  3. Jacqulineliza

    We got ours from LTD commodities for around $5 and it is truly one of our favorite purchases from there. My son can now go to the bathroom in the middle of the night without turning on all the lights in the house. Plus he just loves showing his friends 😂

  4. peachcraze

    We got ours as a gag gift as well. Best gift ever. I love it so much I bought a new one after it was accidentally dropped in the toilet.

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      LOL! That’s a lot of love there!

  5. Mary A

    Dont laugh I love mine!! However I would never stick it to my toilet…it’s stuck on the side of my cabinet! Perfect light for midnight br trips!!

  6. Jake

    They should make a UV light that sterilizes our butts when we’re done!

    How messy is this?like easy to clean? With a son and a hubby, I can see this getting gross lol thanks for any feedback

    • LJfromNJ

      I don’t have one, but I think I am going to get one. I am already thinking about how to treat this problem, I will put a baggie or saran wrap around the part in the toilet so I can change it when I clean. No way that thing will not be gross!

      • Bryant

        I’ve had these for 2 yrs now. I find that they do not get gross as long as you’re cleaning your toilet and it regularly. The only piece that goes inside the bowl is the stick that hangs on the side. I guess depending on how far back you move it to the rear of the bowl there’s a possibility of it getting “gross” but then the sensor would not work as well. I have it located in the front. Good luck!

    Omg! Link? Thanks!

  9. Michelle

    Hahahaha, thank you! My husband has been wanting one and my dad’s birthday is on April 1st, so this is the perfect gift for him! The multi-packs are a great deal, 3 for $10 a piece!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Oh good! You’re welcome, Michelle! Happy Birthday to your dad!

    My husband loves it! We’ve gone through two already unfortunately. They don’t send last. One es rechargeable but it wouldn’t hold a new charge. Good thing they are relatively inexpensive.

    • Margaux

      Illumibowl is the original, it’s a bit more expensive but lasts forever. We’ve had ours since we saw it on Shark Tank in early 2016. Knockoffs are not quite the same unfortunately.

  11. Ashley

    I line in Florida so always turn the lights on when using the restroom at night-always. Never know what bug or snake might be hanging around. Lol I’m serious

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      I lived in Louisiana and I had the same issue! Turn the lights on, Ashley!

  12. Caitlin

    I love this light!! I’ve been using this exact one ( the same first one I bought) for about 4 years now, and it still works great and I love it!! Have potty trained 2 kids with it on the toilet, and the LOVE it!!!

  13. lilchristy

    Our family loves ours and potty training it came in handy. My parents made fun if us when they came to visit but I didn’t care. We have been through 2 of them already.

  14. Dee

    Also bought a pack of two (different brand) as a white elephant gift last November, but ended up keeping for ourselves. It seemed kind of icky to put on the actual bowl, so I just place it on the counter ledge. Works great!
    Agreed, one of the best ideas every.

  15. Buckeyemama11

    They have these at 5 and below and we love ours!

    • dabbilicious
