Lush Twilight Bath Bomb Review

Twilight Bath Bomb:

Rating: 5/5*

Cons:

This is quite a feminine bath bomb, in the sense that it leaves the bath water a light purple colour. The bath water left behind by the bath bomb is also filled with lustre, and the colour of the bath bomb itself is a light, pinky purple colour, with an adorable design of a cartoony moon and cartoony stars on it. The scent of the bath bomb is lavender, with a sweet and buttery toffee note to it. Some men and women may not feel uncomfortable bathing with a bath bomb with aspects that are typically perceived as being feminine, so this may not be for everyone!

To me, every product with the Twilight scent that I have smelled so far smell differently from one another. The bath bomb when in it’s solid form does smell typically like the Twilight scent – it smells like both the shower gel and like the Mr Sandman Dusting Powder. However, once in the water, the lavender scent becomes much more prominent than the sweet, toffee scent, which becomes slightly more buttery smelling and much more subdued. If you’re not actually keen on naturey scents and mainly like the Twilight scent for it’s sweetness, perhaps you wouldn’t like the bath bomb!

I had this bath bomb in my collection for around 25 days before using it. In this time, the bath bomb had already become much more soft and powdery. This resulted in the bath bomb sinking in my bath tub, leaving little bath art on the surface of the water. This wasn’t a big deal, and I still really enjoyed what bath art the bath bomb did provide! This bath bomb doesn’t seem to last well in storage though, so if you want to give it a try, try not to hoard it!

The bath water left behind by the bath bomb was a very translucent, pale purple colour – sort of like a much more pale and translucent version of the colour of the bath water that the Blackberry Bath Bomb provides. I honestly expected the bath water to be left more opaque and saturated than it was – this doesn’t leave your bath water super colourful!


Pros:

This bath bomb is adorable! It is the cutest little bath bomb I think I’ve ever seen! The design is just absolutely adorable, and is also really comforting and reminds me of the design I had on some of my bed sheets when I was a child. The colour is super cute, the bath water the bath bomb leaves behind is super cute, the concept of the bath bomb is super cute, the scent is super cute… Just everything about this bath bomb makes me really happy! I also received this as a gift from my partner, and I can tell you that this would be an amazing bath bomb to gift someone you care about!

My favourite colour is dark magenta, and I love purpley hues in general. I think the colour of the bath water that Twilight Bath Bomb leaves behind is really pretty, even if I do wish it was more opaque! I also really enjoy the lustre left behind in the bath water 🙂

I think the scent of this product is absolutely amazing! The scent of lavender is quickly becoming a favourite of mine, and with the added hints of sweetness in this product, Twilight Bath Bomb smells very close to perfection to me at the moment! If you enjoy sweet foody scents and also enjoy the scent of lavender, I’d give this product a try!

The bath water left behind by this bath bomb was SUPER moisturising! I was really surprised, because it wasn’t something I expected at all. Twilight Bath Bomb makes for an excellent, nourishing bathing experience 🙂


Overall Conclusion:

Overall, I REALLY enjoyed this product! I had such high expectations for this bath bomb as I absolutely adore the Twilight scent and concept, so it was really exciting to finally get to try it out yesterday. I love how adorable and comforting it is, I love the scent of it, I love how nourishing it is, I love how it looks… Sure, it isn’t absolute perfection, but it is really, really close!

Overall, I’m going to rate Twilight Bath Bomb a 5/5* rating. Perhaps it wasn’t a perfect product but it was close enough for me to rate it a 5 star rating 🙂 I HIGHLY recommend giving this product a try and to gift it to your loved ones – any hype around it is for GOOD REASON!

Lush Magical Moringa Moisturiser Review

Magical Moringa Moisturiser:

Rating: 3/5*

Cons:

If you want to really feel your face feeling very moisturised after using a moisturiser, this is not the one for you! After using a moisturiser, I like to really be able to feel the product on my skin, so that I know it is doing its job! After applying a lot of this moisturiser you can feel it on the skin, but… I don’t know… It just doesn’t really feel as moisturising as any other moisturiser I have used from Lush to be honest!

Sometimes, I actually found this moisturiser to be drying to my skin! My concealer would sit terribly and wouldn’t be able to blend out well at all when applied over a layer of Magical Moringa… Honestly, I think this moisturiser by itself is pretty terrible!

Any makeup on my face would just look dry, flakey, cakey and would just settle in any texture on my face whatsoever, after using this moisturiser by itself. It definitely isn’t one that really improves the overall appearance of one’s makeup!

You have to use A LOT of this product to feel it doing anything at all to your skin.

Okay, this is going to sound strange, but… This moisturiser smells like curry. Like a delicious, spicy curry. Maybe some of you guys don’t want your face smelling like a good ol’curry all day 😀

This moisturiser melts with the warmth of your fingers – it is what it melts into that scares me a bit. It melts into an oil pretty much. Applying something so oily to my skin kind of terrifies me because I have very sensitive skin, so it is easy for me to get acne! If you are quite acne prone then I really wouldn’t suggest this one for you.

THIS MOISTURISER IS SO EXPENSIVE!!! No, seriously. It is definitely a love or hate product so guys, if you are interested please for the love of God, get a sample before purchasing it!

This moisturiser not only doesn’t FEEL very moisturising on the skin at all, it also takes away any APPEARANCE of moisture in your skin. For some people, this is absolutely fantastic! For me, I like some slight dewyness to my skin because I think moisturised skin looks more healthy. If you feel the same way then again, steer away from this little guy!


Pros:

Okay so for me personally, I absolutely love the smell of this moisturiser! I don’t care if my face smells like a Indian spices, so long as it smells good! Like, this is the best smelling moisturiser that I think I’ve ever smelt… It smells absolutely incredible!

This moisturiser applied over the top of a good serum works absolutely fine. In fact, I really like the way this moisturiser works over a serum. It isn’t heavy at all, the serum keeps the skin’s texture slighly dewy and looking healthy, the serum keeps the skin nicely moisturised… Under a serum, this moisturiser just leaves your skin feeling really soft, incredibly smooth and quite lovely!

I haven’t had any absolutely terrible acne while using this moisturiser, although it certainly hasn’t stopped my acne from occurring either. But it at least hasn’t appeared to make it any worse!

I find that I need to re-apply powder to my face a little less when using this moisturiser as opposed to others from Lush. It doesn’t stop me from needing to re-apply powder entirely, but it does keep my face looking alright for longer.

Again, when applied OVER a serum, my makeup just sort of “works” better than it usually would. I don’t have to apply so much concealer because it just goes further over the top of a serum and Magical Moringa. I’m not quite sure why, but it is a really nice quality of this moisturiser.

Honestly, I received this moisturiser as a sample and man, Lush was generous with their sample of this moisturiser. It lasted me a really nice amount of time! Definitely worth asking for a good sample of Magical Moringa Moisturiser to try at home, right?


Overall Conclusion:

Overall, meh… I don’t really know what to think of this one.

For the billionth time, it works nicely under a serum, but do I really want to be applying a serum to my face EVERY MORNING…? I usually prefer to apply a serum before bed or something, so that it can sink in while I sleep and so that my skin doesn’t feel so heavy throughout the day…

The smell is really nice though, and the effects over a serum are honestly pretty damn good.

I’m going to rate this moisturiser a 3/5* rating. It’s a shame because it does smell absolutely delicious… I just don’t really think it was moisturising enough for me.

Before trying Lush products, I would have thought this moisturiser to be absolutely perfect for me, because my skin can get really oily throughout the day. But since using Lush products, I’ve sort of learnt just how much your skin needs moisture in order to be its healthiest, and I just don’t feel that this moisturiser provided that for me personally.
