Twilight bath bomb

5 out of 5

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 has recently (in 2020) changed the name from Twilight to ‘Sleepy’. The reason they changed it may have somethibg to do with the movie’s copyright s.

But the President/CEO of Lush said that sleepy is the same scent as twilight, only the name has changed.

Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Cream of Tartar, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Lavender Oil, Benzoin resinoid, Tonka Absolute, Ylang Ylang Oil, Cocamide DEA, Lauryl Betaine, *Coumarin, *Linalool, Perfume, Colour 42090, Colour 14700, Colour 17200, Colour 45410, Iridescent Glitter

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.

Screamo

4 out of 5 rating. my 2 minute Tub Demo Video is at the bottom of this page. I hope it helps.

I like this bubble bar. Mostly because one of my favorite lush products is Happy Blooming shower jelly, and this Screamo bubble bar was made with that same cherryish scent.

initially when i sniffed it i smelled a licorice kind of scent. But as i continued to sniff it i can definitely smell the Happy Blooming scent.

This bubble bar is very fragrant. It’s sweet and cherry.

This is a reusable type of lush bubble bar, not a regular, break it up with your hand squishy type of Lush bubble bar.

When i got it it had the stick to hold it but when i picked it up to use it the stick came out and a couple of small pieces broke off. I was like ‘oh no’ but it didn’t hurt anything i just held it in my hand instead.

Lush description: Giggle with a ghost whilst blowing cherry scented bubbles through the mouth of the scream. Swish the blower into the bath water to create purple bubbles that will bring joy to even the darkest of Halloween nights.

Happy Blooming

When i saw the color the water was turning i said ‘yeah baby!’ 😄 And the longer i left it in the water stream the darker the purple color got.

It made bubbles like this and afterwards the bubble bar looked like i didn’t even use it. So this bubble bar is good for at least 2 baths.

Here is my 2 minute Tub Demo Video. I hope it helps.

Sakura

3 out of 5 rating

See my tub demo video below

A photo of the Sakura i bought in 2021

Mimosa in the moonlight. I knew this smell right away, I used to walk around these trees at my fathers house that had the fuzzy lavender colored flowers on it and the smell was heavenly. A sweet yet powdery flower the mimosa. It is lavender in color and fuzzy like a soft pink brush. Sometimes it smells like a light melon scent too. Mimosa is what the “Sakura” ballistic is scented with. This has no color in the water.

a picture of the Sakura i bought in 2005

Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Perfume, Sea Salt, Lemon Oil, Mimosa Absolute, Orange Blossom Absolute, Jasmine Absolute, Gardenia Extract, FD&C Red No. 4, FD&C Blue No. 1

Lush 2006 description: Sakura is the japanese name for cherry blossom which aptly describes this pretty pale pink ballistic. Sakura is dappled with bursts of pale green that rise up to a bright pink and green layer of exfoliating sea salt at the top of the bomb

This has been one of Lush’s regular year round bath bombs since 2004 or so. And its still sold in stores today.

Its a fast dissolving fizzing type of bath bomb, not a slow, melty, foam typeof bomb. It has a lovely floral scent with blue and pink salt crystals on the top.

There’s one or two more products in this scent family that arent in my group picture.

Cinnamon Roll

5 out of 5 rating. see my 3 minute Tub Demo Video Below.

Cinnamon Roll

Lush made this Christmas bubble bar to smell and look like a cinnamon roll.

it smells like a bakery kind of cinnamon smell, and Not a red hot candies kind of cinnamon

This is new this year 2021. It’s a swirl of maroon and tan/gold color. I tried to show the gold glitter in this bar. It’s very very small glitter, and beautiful amidst the red color.

The swirls go all the way through the bar.

It’s a bigger than normal bubble bar, it’s the same bigger size as the Lush Blue Skies, Brightside, The Comforter, Snow Fairy. So i only used half for my bath.

The scent is quite fragrant. It’s a straight cinnamon smell. As i say in the video; it’s not cinnamon and orange , or cinnamon and mint, or cinnamon AND anything. It’s just straight cinnamon. I love it.

The gold glitter undulating in the red water 😍

The scent is nice even when i’m in the tub.

It makes loads of bubbles. it’s not particularly moisturizing. But it wasn’t drying to my skin either.

Antiphilitron

2 out of 5 rating

i wouldn’t recommend if you have dry hair like me.

for oily and normal hair

500g £6.65 250g £3.90 100g £2.05

Ingredients: fresh lemon peel decoction, sodium lauryl ether sulphate, fresh lemon juice, cocoamphocarboxy-glycinate, lemon oil, lauryl betaine, perfume, methyl & propyl paraben.

This was more of a clarifying shampoo, good for getting the greeen out of blonde hair if one swims alot in chlroined water. Great lemony scent. This was a bit harsh on my hair and left tons of tangles. Just not for my hair type is all.

Lush 1999 description: Antiphilitron is for getting your hair clean when other shampoos don’t quite cut the mustard. What its fresh lemon juice, lemon oil and organic lemon peel mixture is good at is really getting hair squeaky clean, washing away grease, city grime or country muck and even chlorine from swimming pools. It also slices right through the silicones that get dumped on your hair by modern shampoos that make your hair smooth and shiny at first but then build up to make it a bit sad and lifeless. Fresh lemons make Antiphilitron smell fantastic, they perk up your hair and scalp and they help to revive your sleepy head in the morning. To greasy hair and grubby hair we say get Antiphilitron and get lively!

see my 2 minute video of its consistency below

Made with orange peel and it smells SO good. If you like the smell of Lush ‘Orange’ liquid body scrub you’ll love the smell of this balm.

This was created by Alessandro from Lush.

It was included as an exclusive product in the April 2021 Lush Kitchen Subscription box.

This has a totally different consistency than all the other Lush foot products. It’s not like a lotion in consistency. It’s the texture of a lip balm.

The best way to use this in my opinion is to have a foot soak at night, try to scrub away any rough skin on the feet , and when the foot soak is done and your dry your feet off, slather this foot balm on your feet and then put socks on overnight while you sleep.

When i did this my feet were so soft.
