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) :
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.
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, 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? 😀
