It took more than five minutes for the bomb to fizzle out from its show. It started off pink, then the blue and sparkles began pouring out and it eventually left the water a gorgeous shade of pinky-purple. It smelled absolutely wonderful but I will admit once the bomb was mostly dissolved, the scent was much fainter. However, the scent lingered on my skin for awhile which is great and would be lovely if I were going straight to bed, very relaxing. Love this scent!
Some sparkles did stick to my skin even after towel-drying, but they aren't particularly bothersome in my opinion. You can always rinse off in the shower once your bath is over if it really bothers you that much. Honestly, it's like a sparkle here, a sparkle there, maybe 2 or 3 on each arm, if that gives you an idea, it's not like I was covered in sparkles lol.
While in the bath my skin felt like it was covered in moisture, just absolute the softest it's ever felt, but I am sorry to say that feeling didn't stick around once I finished my bath. My skin still felt smoother than before, but not particularly more hydrated than when I have used any other bath bomb type products.
This stuff smells like awesome, and since I'm not too great at describing scents, especially ones I really really like, here is what the LUSH website has to say about this scent, all I really have to say about it is it's freaking wonderful and as soon as I smelled it, I knew I must have it...
- Herbal tonic: Lavender acts as nature’s melatonin to relax your mind for a more restful sleep.
- Bedtime story: Take the bitter edge off of sleeplessness with sweet tonka absolute, vanilla’s saucier cousin.
- Comforting and relaxing: Twilight has a slow-paced froth, it bobs about in the tub releasing its sweet scent.
Peaceful lavender bathing under the stars: Recreate the magic of a starry night in your bath water with clouds of lavender and tonka absolute to fight the demons of insomnia and soothe your stressed out body and mind. Our most relaxing Bath Bomb yet, Twilight is our gentle, reassuring hug for the bath to transform you from worn out to warm and fuzzy. It changes color like the sky at dusk, from pinks to purples and darker still. Lay back in the comforting herbal waters to soak your troubles far, far away.
MY FINAL OPINION:
Is it worth $7? - YES
(but it's not like you need one everyday, it's great for the occasional bath when you finally get an evening to yourself)
Will I repurchase? - YES definitely, maybe even based strictly on the scent :-p If you haven't noticed, I LOVE this scent and I wish with all my little heart that they made many more items that smelled exactly like it.
I also picked up the Ultrabland Facial Cleanser & Alkmaar bar soap as well. (the sales associates recommended the Alkmaar bar soap to me when I asked what scents were similar to this Twilight bath bomb, just fyi in case you're interested) Here is the review:
