Out of the never ending collection of Lush scents, I would say that Twilight is a firm favourite throughout the whole of the Lush community. So much so that it appears in a variety of different Lush products released all through the year.
There’s the all year round and much loved Twilight bath bomb, the solid and liquid perfumes, the Christmas lines Luxury Lush Pud bath bomb and of course the Twilight Shower Gel which is what I will be reviewing for you today.
The Twilight shower gel is overflowing with some of the world’s most soothing, natural ingredients. Tonka, lavender and benzoin essential oils have each been carefully selected to create a calming and relaxing shower gel. It’s the perfect partner for a night time soak.
The first time I came across the Twilight scent was actually in bath bomb format. When I very first got into Lush Cosmetics I had been slowly working my way through just the bubble bars. After a month or two of visiting my local store, I decided that it was about time I explored some of the other products too. That day I picked up the Twilight bath bomb and ever since I have been a hardcore Twilight addict.
Lavender as I am sure you will all know, is said to lull you into a relaxed state of mind, which in turn aids restful sleep. Although I can’t give the Twilight shower gel all of the credit but ever since using it I have been able to drop off much easier, which is a huge success considering I had previously struggled to fall asleep full stop.
Whenever the Twilight shower gel is in the Lush Kitchen I try to get hold of at least one bottle. My boyfriend is (unfortunately for me) also a fan of the shower gel. It is a shower gel made to last, a little of it goes a very long way, the tiniest amount of product can easily wash your whole body, leaving your skin refreshed and hydrated.
My boyfriend however uses it by the gallon, I honestly cannot keep up with him, neither can the Kitchen… He over indulges with nearly all of the Lush shower gels and shower creams but Twilight is one of his clear favourites as it never lasts long in our bathroom. I get that his excess use of it is his luxury but it really gets my goat, it really isn’t necessary to use gallons and gallons of it as, as said above a little really does go a long, long way! caring is sharing and all that jazz…
Lush products may be a tad more expensive than the average drugstore product but taking into account that all Lush products have fresh, natural and cruelty free ingredients I think it’s worth splashing a little out on. That is unless you find yourself living with my boyfriend, IF IT’S NOT NAILED DOWN HE WILL HAVE IT, get yourself a Lush safe decorated with barbed wire 😉
Older versions of the Twilight shower gel were quite runny. The more recently made ones from the last 3 or 4 times it has been in the Lush Kitchen have however been a thicker formula. This small change has made this already great shower gel so much better. It lathers up much easier and its scent stays with you for several hours after using it.
My skin feels soft and hydrated for several days after using Twilight shower gel. If you haven’t tried Twilight shower gel yet I strongly advise that you do. It features in the Lush Kitchen a lot so if you missed out on the batch sold earlier this week don’t panic, it’ll be back soon!
