Lush Christmas Haul - Twilight - Blogmas Day 10

Hello guys, and welcome to another Blogmas post! Today will be a review of the Twilight Bath Bomb from the Lush Christmas range. Before we dive in, let’s see what Lush has to say about it;


If sleep is evading you, this combination of essential oils will help get you ready for a good night's rest. As Twilight dissolves, it turns from the colour of the setting sun and gets darker, turning your water a shimmering deep purple. The fragrance has been designed to help you sleep: lavender is a soothing, mind-clearing and calming fragrance, used in aromatherapy to treat insomnia and aid restful sleep, while benzoin and tonka call to mind a milky caramel malt drink.


For me, the main detectable scent in this bath bomb is the lavender, but I would say it is quite different to the Sleepy bath bomb, which is also lavender. I think this one smells a little sweeter, and has a distinct scent that I couldn’t quite place. From reading about what goes into the bath bomb over on the Lush website, I would imagine the sweetness comes from the Ylang Ylang oil, and perhaps the scent that I can’t place is the Tonka? Either way, it’s a very enjoyable and relaxing scent.


This bath bomb is priced at £3.95, which is slightly more than many of the other bath bombs you’ll find within the Christmas range.


Despite looking fairly understated at a glance, this bath bomb was probably one of my favourites to watch after dropping in the bath. As the beautiful pinky colour starts to fizz away, a blue core was revealed giving me a swirling pattern of both colours before the waters finally settled to a pretty lavender colour that gets slightly darker as it mingles with the blue.


There is some glitter in this bath bomb which gave further visual appeal, however there wasn’t too much. More than enough to make for a pretty bath, but not so much that I emerged covered in it.


I’m also pleased to report that despite the blue tones this didn’t stain the tub in any way shape or form. It did leave the smallest amount of glitter in the bottom of the tub, but that was easily washed away with a little water. So if you like maintenance free bath bombs, this is one for you!


All in all I enjoyed using this bath bomb, and I will certainly repurchase it again. Whilst in a lot of ways it is certainly similar to the sleepy bath bomb, I prefer this out of the two so this will become my new go to when I need a good night’s sleep.


Have you tried anything from the Lush Christmas range? What is your favourite?
