Conditioner -LUSH -American Cream

on 1/16/2018 3:26:00 AM

It smells good in the bottle but in the shower was not my cup of tea. It doesnt moisturize whatsoever. I let my bf use it since he has short hair and this doesnt make his hair oily but helps him feel less dry after i love juicy shampoo which we both like. This ones not for those with long hair looking for that hydration or soft smoothly comb-able hair. It doesnt do what conditioner suppose to do lol it barely does anything for me.

Cleansers -LUSH -coal face soap

foto

I found this soap just a little too harsh, even on my very oily, prone to acne skin. After using this, my skin always felt a little tingly almost, a little wrung out.

I suppose it controlled my acne, it didn’t break me out but I don’t feel like it improved it very much either. The scent is mild. Like most Lush soaps I’ve used, this didn’t really lather very richly, which means you end up using more soap and it finishes quite quickly for it size. I used the whole soap and my skin didn’t come out worse for wear, but I won’t be repurchasing this soap. I would definitely not recommend this for sensitive skin.


Lip Treatments -LUSH -Bubblegum Lip Scrub

foto

I've never had much luck with LUSH products, but this beautiful bright pink color was calling my name. This lip scrub is fantastic! It's easy to use and does what it's supposed to do. Smells fantastic...and tastes fantastic too, if you happen to lick your lips by accident upon application.

This product dried out after a while and I was bummed that I might have to throw it out. However, I decided to add a few drops of rosewater and BAM! we were back in business. It's working just fine.


Hair Color -LUSH -Caca Marron

I'm on my second bar of Lush henna, having used it three times. The first time I, of course, did my whole hair and used the whole bar. The two following times I used two squares for touching up my roots, and from what was left I made a henna gloss to put in the lengths of my hair. I'm really, really happy with the results. The first few days it's a pretty fiery copper red, but after that it mellows down a bit, though it's still definitely auburn. I don't think the colour screams henna though, and I've had so many people ask about my hair colour and be shocked when I say that it's henna-based. (Not to slag off the "typical" bright henna colour in any way, I love it, I just prefer a darker shade on myself.)

So a little backstory: I'm a dark blonde with previously dyed auburn hair, and when I first tried this dye I had a fair amount of roots. I was really happy to see that there was no difference in colour between my natural roots and my previously dyed hair, though. I know there may be a lot of issues dying over henna, but hennaing over semi permanent hair dye was no problem whatsoever. I had been using the L'oreal Casting Creme Gloss (in either Spicy Amber or Amber) for a few years, and to be honest I was quite content with the results. The main reason I wanted to replace it with Lush's henna was that I had transitioned to cruelty free alternatives in every other area of my beauty routine, apart from my hair dye. The naturalness of henna was definitely a plus, too. I will admit that I miss how quick and easy it used to be to dye my hair, though. I leave the henna in for 2-3 hours (covered with clingfilm and a towel), so including preparation, application and clean-up time, it's a pretty long process.

The first time I hennaed my hair I enlisted the help of my mother - not for expertise as she has never dyed her or mine hair ever, let alone with henna - but merely to have an extra set of hands. I ended up not adding enough water and making the paste much to thick, so it crumbled everywhere. The cleanup of the bathroom took me so long, I would've been discouraged if I hadn't liked the result so much. The first time I was gonna touch up my roots I made the batch pretty runny and applied it to my roots with a brush, and I much preferred that application technique. Less messy, and quicker, too. When I had covered my roots the best as I could (the back of the head is the worst) I mixed the henna I had left with a hair mask (Lee Stafford's Coco Loco Coconut mask) and worked it into the lengths. I've heard other people saying that they experience fading a lot quicker when they do a henna gloss, but I didn't notice any difference in fading from my first time applying it. Possibly because Lush's henna is already sort of a gloss (rather than pure henna)? Speaking of Lush's henna vs pure henna - I have no doubts that you can get better result with good quality, pure henna, but personally I like the ease of buying everything pre-mixed and ready to go.

I have curly (2c/3a) hair that is very, very dry, and it felt super moisturized after application. After the first time, I had to wash it again the day after because it felt greasy, and I usually tend go about 4 days between washes, and even then it's not greasy, only tangled. Since then I've changed my hair care routine to a low poo type of situation (sulfate free shampoo and only water soluble silicones), and it seems like my hair absorbs and retain moisture in a completely different way ever since. It doesn't feel greasy after application anymore, just moisturized, thick and healthy. It does disrupt my curl pattern a bit, but after a few washes it's more or less back to normal.

Overall, if it's not already clear by my long and ramble-y review: I really like this product! Considering I only have to use 1/3 of it most of the time, I think it's good value. Especially since you get a hair treatment - not just a dye.

+ Cruelty free
+ Vegan
+ Lasts well, and when it does fade, it does so in a natural way that makes roots less apparent
+ Natural
+ My hair loves the moisture and the protective coat that the henna provides
+ Though it may seem tricky at first, you'll quickly find the best techniques and it'll get easier (already at my third time I could do it much more quickly)
+ My hair has never been as shiny (or shiny at all) as it is after applying this
+ The hair feels thicker, and while that's not really something I'm after, I think people who doesn't have very thick hair to begin with may enjoy that aspect

- You sort of have to be "committed", not only because it's time-consuming and messy, but because you may have problem going back to chemical dyes if you would change your mind
- The ground coffee is not easy to rinse out completely. Takes me two rounds of shampoo (with sulfate) and then a ton of conditioner to get it out of my scalp
- The scent isn't horrible, but it's certainly not good. And it lingers for a LONG time
- Fellow curly people: it may affect your curls. For me it was just for the first few washes, thankfully, but still worth mentioning

Moisturizers -LUSH -Magical Moringa moisturiser and primer

foto

I'm not at all sure why this is called a moisturizer, because it's unlike any cream, serum, or balm out there. This is far more in line with silicone primers, and performs just like one in terms of oil control and line filling properties. I consider this superior to Benefits Pore-Fessional when applied right.

This works much better at body temp, and when used sparingly. You can't put it on like lotion, but one fingertip resting on the top of the product melts plenty to spot treat any area you need. I'm not especially oily, but on days I need it, this has never failed me or caused caking that pore-fessional can. I have even used this all over my nose and been amazed at it's staying power. You'll know when it sets in because it has a powdery feel to it.

One last thing- this product is ALL oil and it needs to stay cool. If you travel with this, be warned, it can make a mess!
