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.
