Lush Twilight Shower Gel Review

Okay guys, I’m super excited to finally be writing this review! This is such a hyped-up product, and in my opinion that is for very good reason. Last year I was lucky enough to be gifted a £100 Lush gift card for Christmas, and so I bought this shower gel last year in the Boxing Day sale at the Oxford Street store. I’ve only just completely used it up (I’ve been trying to get through so many different body washes at the same time!) So it lasted me just under a year!

I hope you enjoy this review 🙂

Twilight Shower Gel (100g) :

twilight_web

Rating: 5/5*

Cons:

The scent of this shower gel genuinely relaxes me and makes me feel kinda sleepy – which can be a problem if you want to use it in the daytime! This definitely isn’t a pick-me-up or wake-up sort of shower gel.

The lavender scent in the shower gel is pretty strong, so if you’re not a fan of lavender I would really steer clear of this one altogether.

The scent is REALLY STRONG. I know a lot of people prefer mildly scented shower gels – this shower gel does NOT have a mild scent at all.

I don’t know that I ever particularly noticed the shower gel’s scent clinging to my skin very much after using it.


Pros:

I love this shower gel. It’s relaxing, calming, soothing… The scent is like receiving a big hug before bed. I recommend at least giving it a go because wow, I really liked this one!

The colour of Twilight shower gel is beautiful. It is a deep purple colour.

Twilight lathers up beautifully. I’d only need to apply the smallest drop of shower gel to my shower pouf, and it would often be enough to wash my entire body with (and I’m super thorough!) Sometimes I would have to add another small dot of shower gel onto my shower pouf once I had reached my waist, but there would always be lather left behind on the shower pouf when I had done cleaning myself.

Using Twilight will leave your bathroom smelling absolutely gorgeous all day and all night, and pretty much for as long as Twilight is the last cleansing product you used in the bathroom!

There is a real sweetness to the shower gel’s scent, making it not quite so in-your-face of a lavender scent as it would be otherwise. If you imagine mixing the scent of a freshly baked cake with the scent of lavender, that’s the way Twilight smells to me. Like a lavender cake.

The name of this shower gel… Ugh! It’s just so beautiful, mysterious, sleepy, calming and comforting.

When I was a kid, I was very into integrating the night sky into my bedtime. I had a teddy who wore a night hat and pyjammas, completely covered in glow-in-the-dark moons and stars. I also had dark blue bed sheets with dark yellow, bohemian style moons and stars all over them. My mother has always been a huge fan of lavender, and would get me to rub my fingers on lavender plants to smell them when I was a kid. Twilight shower gel brings back those precious, nostalgic, comforting childhood memories for me, through its name, its colour and through its beautiful scent.

Twilight shower gel works very well. It always left me feeling super clean, smooth and slightly moisturised after using it.


Overall Conclusion:

Overall, I am utterly baffled as to why this isn’t available year-round, as Lush would make a massive profit by doing so! I do know that some people hate Twilight, but I’m fairly certain that the vast majority of people feel the same way as me – this shower gel is incredible.

The scent is an absolute dream. It’s feminine, delicate, complex, sweet, rich, has just the right amount of headiness to it, is nostalgic, relaxing… The scent IS very strong, but that’s something I don’t mind much, and definitely isn’t enough to prevent me from wanting to use more of this shower gel in the future.

This is like, quite possibly my favourite body cleansing product that I have used from Lush to date… Okay, I also REALLY enjoyed Rose Jam – I’m not sure which of the two I enjoyed more at the moment!

Anyways, I don’t know what else to say about Twilight Shower Gel. It’s pretty obvious that I’m absolutely in love with it!

Overall, I’m going to rate this shower gel a 5/5* rating. I just think it’s such an amazing product – it’s only genuine faults are that it makes me feel sleepy when I inhale it (and sometimes I don’t want to feel sleepy) and that the scent doesn’t cling to my skin more after using it.  It’s such an incredibly product that it still gets a clear 5* rating from me! I mean, who doesn’t want to use a shower gel that makes them feel like they’re receiving a nice hug? 😀

Lush Rose Jam Bubbleroon Review

Hey guys!

I received this Lush product as part of a gift from my partner for my birthday last October, and decided to finally use it for Valentines day before it went bad! I hope you enjoy my review 🙂


Rose Jam Bubbleroon:

Rating: 5/5*

Cons:

 The scent of this bubbleroon is NOT exactly the same as the scent of the Rose Jam shower gel. When in the bath, the scent of this bubbleroon has quite an apparent tangy citrus note to it, which is far more subdued in the shower gel. The ingredients do differ quite a bit between the two products. For example, the shower gel contains vanilla pod infusion as its second top ingredient, giving the shower gel a very sweet aroma throughout use. The bubbleroon however does not even contain any vanilla whatsoever. The shower gel also contains Gogi berry juice, whereas the bubbleroon does not. The difference isn’t extremely major, but it is noticeable when the product is in the bath. Just don’t expect the scent to be EXACTLY the same as Rose Jam shower gel, and instead expect a version of Rose Jam that has a little less sweetness and a little more of a kick to it.

Not only is the scent of this product different to Rose Jam shower gel, I think it is also less nice in my opinion!

I needed to use the entire bubbleroon in one go to get the amount of bubbles I like when I take a bubble bath. Honestly, I forgot to put the bubbleroon under the tap until my bath was already almost full, so I don’t think it had as much of a chance to bubble up as my bubble bars from Lush usually do! None the less, I was surprised I had to use the entire product to get a nice bubbly bath.

After using a bubble bar from Lush, and many times after using a bath bomb too, I find I have to rinse off in the shower afterwards in order to feel completely clean. This bubbleroon was no different, and that additional step can be a little tedious when you’ve already been in the bath for 1-2 hours!


Pros:

This bubbleroon looks so adorable! It is the sweetest bubble bar I’ve ever used! It is a beautiful macaroon style with a gorgeous glittery rose design on the top of it! As cute as a button 🙂

This bubbleroon is really moisturising. All of that cocoa butter frosting in the center, along with all the oils they add to the bubbleroon, produce a lovely, moisturising bath. Highly recommend!

The scent, although not as nice as the Rose Jam shower gel, was still alright in the bath. Nothing incredibly amazing, but it was alright.

Out of the bath, this bubbleroon smells amazing!

The entire experience with this bubbleroon is really feminine – a gorgeous rose macaroon style bubble bar that produces a fluffy bubbly girly scented pink bath! I used mine on Valentines day and it suited the mood of the day absolutely brilliantly. It really made me feel more feminine than usual and is definitely a romantic bubbleroon too!

The bath water produced from this bubbleroon will be a rosey pinky red colour, which for some reason reminded me of the colour of pomegranate juice! It is definitely more of a pinky red than a reddish pink, if that makes any sense at all. Either way, I thought the colour was absolutely gorgeous!

The bubbles this bubbleroon produce make the bath extra relaxing. The bubbles themselves are fluffy and fill the entire bath tub (at least if you have bath jets and use them like I did.)

The whole concept and scent and absolutely everything about this bubbleroon made me feel super pampered and lovely!


Overall Conclusion:

Overall, I really enjoyed this bubbleroon. It is an absolutely amazing product, and the only real improvements I could suggest for it would be for it to be made bigger and for its scent to be made a little closer to the shower gel’s.

I’m going to rate this bubbleroon… Hmm, this is actually difficult. It is either a 4 or 5/5* rating. I love how moisturising it is, and the whole pamperesque experience of using this bubbleroon. It is just the scent that makes me think perhaps the product is more of a 4* than a 5*. I’m going to give it a 5/5* rating, because although the scent in the bath wasn’t great, the positive aspects of this bubbleroon far outweigh that factor.

I hope you enjoyed my review! I HIGHLY recommend trying this bubbleroon or gifting one to a loved one. It is lovely!

Lush Butterbear Bath Bomb Review

Hey guys!

Today is an extremely exciting review – I have lost my Lush bath bomb virginity (thanks to my amazing partner!) to the adorable Butterbear! I hope you enjoy this review 🙂 Sorry that the photos aren’t the best quality!


Butterbear Bath Bomb:

Rating: 5/5*

Cons:

SOME people might find that this bath bomb leaves their skin with a sort of greasy film on it, and they might not like that. If you don’t like feeling moisturised then well, Butterbear is definitely not the one for you!

The smell of Butterbear is very slightly artificial in scent – it has a sort of strong, perfumey tang to it. If you don’t like quite strong scents, this is not the one for you either!

Butterbear doesn’t really alter the colour of the bath water or create much of a show. If you want something super colourful and crazy, Butterbear will disappoint.


Pros:

Okay, so writing ANY cons for Butterbear was actually very difficult for me to do – I loved my little Butterbear! The first reason I think everyone should go out and buy themselves a Butterbear of their own is because he is just absolutely adorable! Like, the cutest Lush product I have ever used (by far!) Just the way this bath bomb looks is sure to put a smile on your face. So cute!

The smell is a very strong cocoa butter and vanilla scent. It smells slightly sickly but it is just so lovely. It also has this slighly perfumed aroma to it. I think he smells absolutely divine to be honest. Good enough to eat! Definitely one for those with a sweet tooth 😉

I received this as a gift, and it was the sweetest present! Even just grabbing one of these to cheer a friend up is a brilliant idea. These make fantastic gifts – trust me!

Butterbear is so moisturising – I felt incredibly soft after my long bath.

Butterbear softened the dead skin on my body, making it really easy to scrub off. I shower regularly and was surprised to see how much cleaner I was able to get just sponging my body over after soaking in a bath with Butterbear. If you really like to feel really clean, Butterbear is a must!

The bath was so nourishing that as well as my body, my hair and face also felt really moisturised after leaving the bath!

Once Butterbear has completely fizzed away, large droplets of melted butters were left behind on the surface of the bath water. It is nice to be able to see visually just how moisturising and luxurious your bath is!

Butterbear is vegan, all natural, handmade, is from the fantastic company Lush and is cruelty free.

I found Butterbear just so exciting to use, I really recommend giving him a go!


Overall Conclusion:

Overall, I LOVE BUTTERBEAR SO MUCH!!! I just want one in my Lush supplies at all times – he is so bloody cute!!! I love him!!!

So, I rate Butterbear a 5/5* rating, of course. Butterbear is simple and isn’t a miracle product from Lush, but for what a bath bomb is meant to do, Butterbear is brilliant. It’s the only bath bomb I’ve tried from Lush and is a real classic, I think this one will remain in my favouites for a long time!

GRAB YOURSELF AND YOUR FRIENDS A BUTTERBEAR – YOU WON’T REGRET IT! 😀
