Sunday Soak - Lush Twilight

I'd anticipated a very tiring and stressful week - I've been off work for summer holiday adventures with the little ones - so bought myself Twilight early on in the week as a treat to myself for getting to the end of it. Turns out my week was completely delightful, but it's still always nice to have a lovely bath treat regardless!

Twilight has a lovely sleepy scent, lavender with tonka and benzoin, for a soothing and calming experience. The use of aromatherapy is supposed to aid restful sleep, making this a perfect bed time bath. I used it in the morning, but then I got to go back to bed for a bit anyway, so win!

The pretty pinky-purple bath bomb, decorated with stars, is designed to emulate the darkening sky. It starts by releasing a soft pink foam, but once water hits the centre the blue core fizzes away faster, leaving a bright trail across the lavender water. 

It was a bit of a slow dissolver, this one, so I didn't get a picture of the full finished effect (as I wanted to actually get in the bath and get on with the relaxing) but I ended up with a bath full of silvery purple water with a very pretty fine glitter throughout.

All in all another corker from Lush. Very pretty, very relaxing - mmmm now I want to go to sleep again!

  1. Oooh that does look rather relaxing! For some reason I thought it was going to turn my bath pink, but if that's what it does I'll be trying this one next.

  2. I always assumed it would turn the bath pink, too, but that actually sounds really lovely! I like Lush glitter as it dissolves when it hits your skin instead of clinging to all the bath towels and the floor and everything else!

  5. Does it leave the bath all gritty? All bath bombs I've tried in the past leave a crunch under my bum.

  8. Did you sparkle? Like a vampire? I LOVE bath bombs, however they do not like me or my vagina and I end up with thrush. bad times

  9. This is soooooo pretty! I'm like the person above though, always scared to try out a Lush bath bomb in case it makes me sore! Maybe I'll be brave enough one day :P
