Looking like Cinderella’s carriage, i love the new Strawberry scent. Its different than any other Lush strawberry scent. Its almost like they mixed lush rose jam and lush strawberry twin tub jelly. Those notes mixed together.
I don’t think i’ve ever seen any Lush bath bomb that was so intricately designed. And the color combination of that shade of pink with a beautiful dusting of gold.
After my bath i ordered 3 more of this bath bomb. Who knows. i might buy more right before they go away in January.
This is a slow melty foamed type of bath bomb. I love that type. Those usually have the best bath art.
I noticed that this has pink shimmer in the water as well as gold shimmer! It doesn’t stick to your skin which is good. It’s not the most glitter i’ve seen in a lush bath bomb but it’s not the least amount either.
The pink and yellow combine to make a deep orange colored water, with pink and gold sparkles.
Lush introduced this bath bomb around 2008 or 2009. That’s when i had my first Twilight bomb. The name comes from the time there was a very popular new movie called ‘Twilight’.
When Lush first made their Twilight bath bomb it was very popular with Lushies, and its maintained the same popularity ever since.
Not only does it look like the night sky (twilight) with stars and moons on the outside of the bomb, it also makes two different colors in the tub as it dissolves; pink and blue, but it also has a beautiful silver shimmer in the water. The blue and pink eventually mix in the water to become a lavender color.
Then there is the scent. Its a genius mix of bright herbal fragrance of lavender which promotes relaxation and sleep but there is also Tonka bean which smells similar to vanilla bean but tonka is more of a caramely scent. Then lastly there is the lovely floral notefrom the ylang ylang flower. The twilight fragrance is only subtley sweet and comforting.
Its such a gorgeous scent that Lush has used in many other products that i’ll list below which they have made. I also show these products in my scent family photos below.
Lush Times: Everyone seems to be in love with twilight at the moment. Whether it’s the film series or that enchanting period betwixt day and night, we can’t work it out. If you’re stressed out and feeling like a member of the un-dead, this relaxing ballistic will stake all of your troubles and scatter them to the winds with scents of lavender and Ovaltine.
This is up for the vote for the September 2021 subscription box. 🤞🏽
This is rare. Lush has never remade this since it was originally sold in 2004. Not even in the previous incarnation of the Lush Kitchen. I pray this gets enough votes. 🙏🏼
This is (was) a lovely powdery, Summer floral bath bomb available in the UK and in some NA gifts. Lots of pretty, tiny blue flower petals in this one. Summer Blues also turns the water a pale blue.
Lush used to make a liquid bath oil called Dreaming of Summer and this was the precursor to Summer Blues bomb. I love having them together but if you don’t like bits in your bath (and on your skin if you use the bath oil with it.) then you can simply put the bomb in a pop sock or a kitchen seive, as just the smell and water color is worth it. Here is a picture of the Dreaming of Summer bath oil.
Summer Blues’ fresh scent lasts on the skin longer than most Lush scents too. It’s a similar fresh, spring air scent that is in Lush’s “Oxeo Cube” deo and “Tiptoe Thru The Tulips” soap. I don’t usually combine these with anything.
Lush Times Summer 2004 description: Drop this in the bath and you’ll get a blue pond full of three kinds of blue flower petals, scented with soothing rose, calming and reviving orange blossom, relaxing jasmine and lemongrass to lift your spirits. It’s like buying a ticket and hopping on the magic bus to a warm, summer garden. Float in a warm bath of flowers and you’ll discover that the Summer Blues Bath Ballistic is one of the fastest ways to rid yourself of winter miseries.
5 out of 5 rating (WOW) See my TubbDemo & Scent description video below.
The first time i saw this, on a lush store instagram account, and i thought to myself ‘oh my God what a beautiful bomb.’
Lush description: Watch colours of orange, red and gold glide across your bath as you sink into skin softening waters with rice starch and coconut milk powder. Lie back and listen to the firework-like crackle whilst you inhale the scent of decadent floral rose and rich cardamom.
Rangoli is an art form originating in the Indian subcontinent on certain holidays, in which patterns are created on the floor or a tabletop using materials such as powdered lime stone, red ochre, dry rice flour, coloured sand, quartz powder, flower petals, and coloured rocks.
The smell is delicate, but GORGEOUS. Pure rose, cardamom (which i love), mandarin oil, almond essential oil, coconut powder, benzoin. It a delicate, softly sweet rose, a drop of fragrant and yummy cardamom and a half drop of almond essential oil.
As it starts foaming and dissolving a lovely striped pattern of gold, orange and red foam appeared. The popping candy is slow popping, it doesn’t distract from the poetic loveliness of this bomb.
This is a slow melter type of lush bomb. I love the gradient colors of foamy stripes in my photo below.
Golden glitter appears in the water when the bomb is all dissolved.
It’s altogether lovely, romantic, festive and yummy.
Its alright. Its certainly pretty. I like when Lush changes it up sometumes. For instance Lush made tge Luxury Lush Pud one year with the twilight scent and one year with the Comforter scent. I liked surprises like that. But…. This wasnt just changing the scent of something. This is melding the look of two completely different bath bombs. Which can be fun. Except when they replace the mermaid blue and gold water of Golden Wonder to a peach colored water with no sparkle.
Lush has released the ‘Golden Wonder’ bomb for Christmas every year for the past 10+ years. Why? Because its very popular. Whats not to love, it was a gold present.
So while i like a change i do wish they would bring the two original bombs back next Christmas 2022.
This is to replace the Golden Wonder Christmas bomb which has been sold every year for Christmas for the last 15 years or so. It looked like a gold Christmas present. And it had the Lush Champagne Snow Showers/Celebrate scent, which is a fizzy grapefruit or orange scent.
This Golden Pudding is like if Lush Luxury Pud and Golden Wonder had a baby.
Lush ‘The Sicilian’ bath bomb. Made in the early 2000’s. Discontinued about four years later.
this is one of five products here that are up for the vote for the August 2021 Lush subscription box.
This bath bomb was always a staple for me, and probably becuase my favorite smell is the smell of fresh peeled oranges.
Its a fast fizzing bomb not a slow melting creamy one. no bath art. no glitter.
This is made with four different orange ingredients: Mandarin, Orange, Neroli, and Tangerine. It also has marigold flower petals mixed in and an orange slice.
The reference comes from the book/movie ‘The Godfather’ which is about a mafia boss from Sicily (and one of my favorite movies). In it the director has something about oranges in every killing scene. 😊
Lush made asoap called Sunny Citrus which is in the same scent.
Lush 2005 Description: Why Sicilian? Well, we named it thus because of the organic Sicilian oranges we slice up and put inside each one and because its sunny colour and refreshing citrus scent remind us of the fruit trees in Sicily’s fertile valleys. We pack it with refreshing, uplifting orange, tangerine and mandarin oils to make us feel almost as good as if we were tootling around on a Vespa with the warm wind messing up our hairdo.
LT 2004: The Sicilian is a bath for brightening up dull days;even sunny days can appear dull when there’s nothing exciting to look forward to. If you know your’re going to spend all day in meetings, or in a room with no daylight or haivng tea with yoru dullest relative thake a Sicilian bath first. The reviving essential oils, made from Sicilian oranges, mandarins, tangerines and orange flowers will cheer you up so much you might actually find you enjoy yourself! Share citrus Sicilians with your co-workers and relatives and all your days will be summer.
