Lush Twilight Bath Bomb Review

Hey Everyone!
Hope you all are well :)

When I walk into Lush now I must admit I'm finding it hard to pick up a bath product that I haven't tried before. It most likely comes as no surprise but I am a Lush addict! When I saw this cute little pink bath bomb that I hadn't tried before I thought, I'll pick it up and stash it away for a rainy day. 

I've been really stressed over the last few weeks and unfortunately when I'm stressed it shows on my skin. My arms were covered with eczema and I also had patches on my forehead and around my nose too, nightmare. As you know I love my baths but I had been putting off having a long soak as I didn't want to irritate my skin further. For the most part my skin is now clear so the other day I busted out my Twilight bath bomb and finally had the bath that I was longing for.

This bath bomb contains ingredients such as essential lavender oils, ylang ylang oils and tonka absolute which aim to relieve stress. Lush state that the bath bomb is 

"our most relaxing bath bomb yet, Twilight is our gentle, reassuring hug for the bath to transform you from worn out to warm and fuzzy."

An absolutely ideal bath bomb I couldn't wait for it to works its magic!

I popped it in the bath and after a few seconds the bath bomb looked like a melted marshmellow. It didn't do anything then for around a minute and I was hugely disappointed but then out of nowhere a blue fizz erupted from the centre of the bath bomb. It began fizzing merrily on its way leaving behind a bright blue trail. 

This bath bomb is a slow fizzer it took absolutely ages to fizzle out. So much so that I hopped in the bath before the bomb had fully dissolved. I just jumped in, laid back and watched the show! The photo below is of one end of the bath before the bath bomb had finished fizzing. The bath water doesn't look like this in the end though, unfortunately. When it has finished dissolving the vibrant colours disappear and you are left with bath water that is more of a lilac/grey colour.

The scent of Twilight is mild, not over powering or as strongly scented as other Lush bath bombs that I have tried but still pleasant all the same. If you are familiar with Lush bath bombs you will probably understand when I saw that this bath bomb left the water feeling silky, a similar effect to the Butterball bath bomb. This is also a glittery bath bomb so you will have glitter particles running through the water. Don't forget to give the bath a quick rinse afterwards so that they don't stick to the bottom of the tub!

Overall I really enjoyed this bath bomb. It left my skin feeling nice and soft afterwards and of course smelling fantastic. I was a bit let down by the colour of the water but it wouldn't put me off repurchasing, this will definitely be a bath bomb i'll buy again!

The Twilight bath bomb at €4.50 and is available from Lush stores nationwide :)
Until next time,
