Twilight Ballistic Bath Bomb - £2.99
I have the amazing sales assistant to thank for recommending this particular bath bomb for my first Lush bath time experience! Utterly amazing, can not praise it enough! So to start, this is what Lush have to say about the Twilight bath bomb:
"If you are struggling to sleep, then this is perfect for using in the evenings. With lavender oil for when you need a bit of extra help to wind down. We’ve added visuals to this bath to help your mind let go and embrace the night time. Twilight dissolves to create a growing sunset that gradually gets darker until you are finally left with the glimmer of stars. To round off the night-embracing effects of this experience, the fragrance is based around the comforting smell of a malty night-time drink. With lavender and tonka oils at the heart, there are also notes of caramel and malt to enhance a sense of comfort and reassurance. She’ll pick you up, will Ovaltina :-)"
So first things first, this bath bomb is huge, when I went to use it I forgot how large it actually
was + thought it was going to be too big to use for just one bath! The ballistic consists of two layers; pink on the outside + blue in the centre. This creates the best effect when placed into the water! The outer layer fizzes and froths leaving the water a pink colour before the blue is released creating a gorgeous lilac coloured water. I noticed a glimmer to the froth but after it melted the water was filled with flecks of iridescent glitter, amazing!! I didn't realise how tricky it is to photograph the effects of a bath bomb (particularly at night time!) but you can see it perfectly on this Lush video.
I didn't think much of the smell before but once it was dissolved in the water it smelt lovely. It really did what it promised to do which was to calm + relax, perfect. I will definitely be picking one of these up again when I'm in need of a bit of pampering, 5 stars from me(:
