Review: Lush Twilight Shower Gel - my first Lush holiday item of 2012!

This is a review for the Lush Twilight Shower Gel. This is a limited edition product for the holidays (and the first Lush product I purchased once I got back to Japan, woohoo!). In Japan, this product is called the Twilight Moon shower gel.

According to Lush, this product was made because customers requested a shower gel to go along with the Twilight Bath Bomb. When I smelled the bath bomb in the store, it smelled strongly of lavender.

What it does: (From the Lush US website)
To our Twilight Bath Bomb fans, we heard your requests. Here it is, a Twilight shower gel, so you can lather up in iridescent purple lavender and tonka bubbles. If you haven't smelled this fragrance before, you're in for a treat! It's slightly sweet with the perfect herbal balance. Wonderful to use in the evening before bed, especially on cold, winter nights. Dreams do come true! 
Price: 9.95 USD/3.3fl oz,  4.25 GBP/100g, 900 JPY/100g.  The current strong yen makes this product nearly twice as expensive in Japan as it is in the UK.

Pros:
  • LOVE the scent. It does smell like slightly sweetened lavender, but it is not too sweet.
  • This is a very dark purple shower gel. I was very worried that it would stain, but it rinsed clean easily!
Cons:
  • If you don't like the scent of lavender, this product may not be for you.
  • Why is this limited edition??? I don't see the connection with the holidays.
Would I repurchase? Yes, if this were permanent. I want to try out the other holiday products from Lush first!

Please take a look at my other Lush holiday reviews from previous years!

I'm very surprised that Smitten Hand Cream hasn't been rereleased this year!

Hope you enjoyed this review!

  1. While I don't dislike lavender, it all depends on what other notes are paired with it. I'll need to check out the holiday collection soon, maybe finally try out Snow Fairy.

  2. Hi K. I absolutely adore the smell of Twilight shower gel. I smelt it during training and it's definitely for lavender lovers. I also love Buche de Noel, Snowcake, and Snowglobe. Another soap I'm pretty excited for this season is Mr. Punch soap!
