My love for the Twilight scent is no secret. Luckily for me (and all of the other Twilight fans) it features in a lot of Lush’s best selling products. The first time I came across the scent was in the Twilight bath bomb, we hit it off straight away and ever since I have been a Twilight super fan.
When Lush Kitchen released their menu last week I couldn’t quite believe my eyes, a Twilight Shower Jelly was up for grabs. (I am not 100% sure so correct me if I am wrong) but I think the shower jelly version of Twilight has never been released before. Whether it is an oldie or a newbie, the Twilight shower jelly is an exclusive for me so I just had to order it.
The short time that the Twilight shower jelly took to completely sell out, told me that I wasn’t the only person eager to own a pot or three.Upon the shower jellies arrival I wish I had got a thousand pots instead of just the one.
Twilight shower jelly is quite easily the prettiest Lush shower jelly I have ever clapped eyes on. Each individual Twilight shower jelly, is a lovely mix of the colours blue and pink, much like the loved Twilight bath bomb.
Just like every other Twilight product, Twilight shower jelly oozes of gorgeous lavender. What makes the Twilight scent stand out from all other lavender based Lush products is the inclusion of tonka absolute and ylang ylang oil.
Used at night time, Lavender and ylang ylang oil combined are an excellent and natural way to help calm your mind after a long and busy day. Alternatively, if the Twilight shower jelly is used in the morning, it helps get you into a calmer, more relaxed frame of mind, better preparing you for the day you have ahead.
Alongside the lavender and ylang ylang oil, the Twilight shower jelly also has a splash of tonka absolute. The tonka absolute adds a layer of sweetness to the shower jellies scent, it is widely used in cosmetics as it is known to help relax and relieve tired or stiff muscles. The Twilight shower jelly really is the perfect shower partner for any time of day.The one question that is bouncing around Lush Cosmetics land is, is the shower jelly as good as the shower gel? My answer is yes. The only difference I have noticed (apart from the obvious) is it is not as moisturising on the skin. The jelly however by no means dries out my skin, it just doesn’t leave my skin quite as silky smooth as the shower gel equivalent does.
Another question I have been asked is will I be buying the Twilight shower jelly again? the answer is.. yes! I love the shower gel version of Twilight however I find all Lush shower jellies last longer than the gels. Twilight shower jelly is therefore in my opinion, well worth stocking up on.
I hope it comes back to the Lush Kitchen soon, it really is yet another great and robust Lush product that I will be very happy using time and time again.
