Last night i had the pleasure of using one of Lush's newer bath bombs (aka ballistics) that i got in a recent haul - it's called Twilight. Now, those of you who may be put off by the name (if you're not to big on the Cullens, hehe) will be relieved to hear that this is not related to the series at all, but the effect it leaves on the bathwater - but more on that later. This was the first of the Lush bath bombs made with the newer formula that i tried, and i'm really glad i did decide to try it.
First off - the smell. It smells absolutely gorgeous, of lavender and mild (not nose-piercing) vanilla. It's very relaxing & calming, and really helped my mind to slow down a bit. I actually thought about the English paper i have to write (*ahem* nerd), and figured out what i'm going to talk about - mhm, this never happens haha.

The ballistic itself is huge and pink with little stars & a moon stamped on it - how cute! - but fizzes away to reveal a blue inside, how awesome is that?! Twilight was actually quite enjoyable to watch because it was just bouncing around & frothing - i was literally looking at it and smiling like a dork haha. It lasted quite a long time in the tub as well, which is really nice. I don't really like when they just fizz out & leave you sitting there bored!
This bath bomb was actually named after the way the bathwater looks as it's fizzing out & after the ballistic's all gone. The water honestly looked SO gorgeous, i literally couldn't stop staring at it - and this is bathwater i'm talking about! I honestly felt like i was sitting in the night sky, as crazy as that sounds - the water was left a rich purple color, with little specks of glitter (aka stars :) floating around. Usually i'd be put off by glitter, but you can't feel the specks at all since they're quite fine. Twilight also left the bathwater really silky & lovely, which my skin really seemed to appreciate :).
This bath bomb is $4.95 and i would definitely repurchase this. Next time you go into Lush, i suggest you have a whiff of this! I think Twilight has actually converted me into a ballistic person, i thought the bubble bars were my thing but i am in loveeeee! This has easily become one of my favorite Lush products for sure :).
