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 Think Pink Bath Bomb Review

Hey guys! Here’s another Lush review 🙂 This bath bomb was a Birthday gift from my perfect mother in October, and I only just used it yesterday! I feel so blessed, it seems almost every product I review was a gift from someone! I guess they all know how much I love my Lush 🙂 I hope you enjoy the review!


Think Pink Bath Bomb:

Rating: 5/5*

Cons:

This bath bomb has an incredibly faint smell once in the bath. I have read reviews saying that this bath bomb actually has a very strong scent once in the bath when it is extremely fresh, but who knows! Either way, for me this bath bomb’s scent was very, very, VERY subtle once in the bath.

My bath bomb left a little pile of bath bomb dust in the bottom of my bath once it was done fizzing away! This wasn’t a big deal and honestly it was actually quite fun to swish the dust around to dissolve it into the water, but it still wasn’t quite what I would expect to happen with a bath bomb!

I wouldn’t think of my bath bomb as having been THAT old, but it really started to look it! The flowers on the top turned a dull yellow colour, and one fell off and went missing entirely! I kept this bath bomb in a big cardboard Lush box filled with packing peanuts and other Lush bath bombs and bubble bars, on the floor just outside my bathroom door. I guess I could have kept it further from the bathroom and then the bath bomb would have kept a bit better, but some people literally keep their bath bombs in the bathroom and I would have thought that would be the normal place to keep them, so I would have expected this bath bomb to keep fresh a liiiiiiiiiiiiittle bit longer than it did!

This bath bomb wasn’t incredibly moisturising, but it was somewhat 🙂

Because of all the confetti in the bath and all the powder I had to mix into the bath water, I didn’t really feel like my hair would be properly clean if I had washed it in the bath water, so I had to use the shower head to wash my hair. This isn’t a huge deal, but I do usually find it simpler to just wash my hair in the bath water, and sometimes just quickly rinse it off afterwards!

There wasn’t really any bath art left on the surface of my bath after using this bath bomb. It is definitely a simple one!

The scent that is present is incredibly sweet so if you’re not a person who is keen on sweet scents, I’d steer away from this little guy.


Pros:

This bath bomb was the cutest thing. Like, absolutely frickin adorable. I loved it so, so, so, so, SO much! It made such a cute gift from my mother and I absolutely loved its design! SO CUTE!

For people who DO like sweet scents, this one would be great for you! Out of the bath, it smelt to me like straight up sugar cake decorations. Like a really, really, really sweet scent, with a slight fruity floral hint. Once in the bath, the scent was sweet but less so, and more fruity, floral and slightly herbal. In the bath, the scent was INCREDIBLY subtle, but overall quite pleasant 🙂

The bath water this bath bomb gave was super girly. It also would make an absolutely perfect Valentines day bath bomb so if you’d like to gift somebody loads of bath bombs or something, you could definitely add this one to their gift along with all the bombs from the Valentine’s Day range! The bath water turns a subtle, see through pink colour, with little heats swirling around everywhere. A very romantic and girly bath indeed!

This bath bomb is super affordable and although it is small, its effects aren’t any less than a bigger bomb’s. Perhaps its ingredients are just more compact or something, I don’t know, but it definitely works just as well as bigger bath bombs! It leaves a lovely colour, loads of confetti hearts, a beautiful scent (although the scent is very subtle,) and lovely, soft, lightly moisturising bath water. Using this bath bomb was overall a really lovely experience!

Again, this was a gift and was an incredible one at that. I’d definitely highly recommend giving this to someone as a gift because it is just the cutessssst thing!

This bath bomb is vegan and from Lush!


Overall Conclusion:

Overall, I loved this bath bomb. It is absolutely adorable. Incredibly cute! I loved it sooooooooooooooo much and it being a gift just made it THAT much better! The scent could have done with being a lot stronger, and the bath bomb could have stood up against time a little better. I also would have preferred if the bath bomb dust DID dissolve in the water while fizzing away, rather than me having to do that myself. There were definitely some cons to this bath bomb but overall it was really sweet 🙂

Taking everything into consideration, I’m going to give this bath bomb a 5/5* rating! It was just so cute that despite all of its flaws, I enjoyed using this bath bomb so, so much! My highest rated bath bombs so far have generally been ones that I consider to be somewhat underrated – it just goes to show right?! You should always give EVERYTHING a go, because everyone is so unique and YOUR holy grail product probably won’t be the same as what somebody else’s will be!
