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.
The most common product with its scent at the time of writing this review is the all-year-round and much loved Twilight bath bomb.
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 shower or soak.
The first time I came across the Twilight scent was actually in its bath bomb format. When I very first got into Lush 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 fan.
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, 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 and neither can the Lush 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 back up, it really isn’t necessary to use gallons and gallons of it as, as I said above a little really does go a long, long way. Plus it’s mine, go and get your own Joe!
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 Joe, 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 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!
