Shampoo -LUSH -Honey I washed my hair solid shampoo bar

foto

I bought this bar to try something different, which set me back $16.50. Was offered a tin for it but wasn't really keen on having to spend any extra. It smelled good and was fun to lather in, but when I tried to wash it out. my hair was super tangly and felt rubbery and I ended up pulling a bunch of my hair out with it. Using this bar my hair feels really soft the first day (but takes longer to style), but after that the ends get really dried out and it looks dull.

I wanted to like this but it was a rip off. The bar only lasted me about 5 washes before it crumbled into nothing. I had it sitting with my soap bar which was fine, but for some reason this shampoo bar wasn't so maybe it would have been better in a tin but who knows. And although it does smell good, the scent never stayed in my hair when most shampoos usually would a little better.

Wouldn't really recommend this to anyone, I think there are so many other products out there which are kinder to your hair, cheaper, and just more efficient.

Shampoo -LUSH -Solid Shampoos - all varieties

Shampoo bar is such a great idea. I came across lush with the intention to reduce my plastic usage. Took me a while to 'master' the perfect way to use it in the shower.
I find that instead of running the bar directly on your scalp/hair, by rubbing and wetting one side of the bar on my palm and running the soapy fingers through my hair, the bar lasts much longer. And you only need to dry one side of the bar when you store it, if you know what i mean.

The only downside is that lush products are so costly in Singapore! Its $25 each!
I bought 2 more in different scent to stock up when I visited italy where they sell it for £8. Love it, and will continue using this as long as they still makes it.

Bronzers -LUSH -Sesame Suntan Lotion

on 7/7/2018 10:19:00 AM

This leaves my skin feeling moisturised and knowing I am protected from the sun is a bonus. OK, the smell..... you end up smelling like a Snickers Bar for about 20 minutes after you have applied it but it does fade. I do agree with the other reveiws though, the smell is very strong and i can see how it would put people off. Definitely try and test the product before you invest as the smell maybe too much. All in all, I would buy this again as I can cope with the smell and it does what its meant to (stop.me from burning in the sun!). It's vegan and has no nasties in it, which is why i bought it.


Skincare - Face -LUSH -Tea Tree Steam Tab

on 7/6/2018 1:40:00 AM

I have mature oily combination skin that needs a good deep facial cleansing with extractions at the very least twice a year to have a clear complexion. In Japan, extractions are unheard of, so my European pores need a trip home once a year to get the proper cleansing they need. Last year I couldn`t go home because of surgery and I`ve also come off my hormonal therapy, so my skin feels more congested than usual with breakouts and white heads I haven`t experienced in years. I bought a home electric steamer and adding these tabs (I also use the lavender ones, and love those as well) once a month, helps to clear my pores and alleviate breakouts. Overall, these are just as effective as an expensive facial in Japan, but a lot friendlier on the pocket. I still need a proper European facial with extractions, but these little tabs help my skin in between my trips home.

Bath Treatments -LUSH -You've Been Mangoed bath melt

on 6/28/2018 6:19:00 AM

This smelled so soothing, imo, I think I`ve stayed in the bath longer than usual just to enjoy that aroma of mango and lemongrass. Someone mentioned that it smelled like housecleaner to them, and I get it, I can totally see how someone would interpret the fragrance that way. These things are subjective, but to me, this smelled like straight up lemongrass. And mango. With a hint of bergamot. Maybe because I`ve been living in Asia for so long, and the house cleaners here don`t stink to high heaven or have a different scent palate than your average North American cleaner. In any case, this bath oil is heavy duty slick, so be careful not to slip into the tub. My skin was coated and soaked it in like a sponge, and there was hardly any need for body lotion when I got out. This is only the second oil from LUSH I`ve tried, but I have to say, I love these even more than their bath bombs and I can`t wait to try them all.

Gels/Soaps -LUSH -Rose Jam Shower Gel

on 6/24/2018 7:43:00 AM

I love this stuff and LUSH shower gels in general (just pick your scent and enjoy it!)

I used to have love/hate relationship with shower gels in general. Most of them would make my already dry skin even drier. Now add freshly epilated skin to that - you get a disaster! I would have little bumps on my arms, flaky skin and ingrown hairs.

I use an exfoliating shower glove and since I switched to LUSH, my skin problems literally vanished! Even if I don't have time for body lotion in the morning, this shower gel alone keeps my skin super soft and happy. No more bumps or other problems! Guys, don't even sleep on it.

I talk more about this and other skin saviours in a separate review here for those of you interested (http://www.partyparrotblog.com/single-post/2018/06/23/NewSummerBeautyFavourites). Hope it helps!


Shampoo -LUSH -Montalbano Shampoo Bar

I bought this shampoo bar DESPITE reading all the bad reviews on here because it smells so good and looked so cool in the store, and I am trying to be more environmentally friendly. I also thought the natural ingredients would help my hair. This is one of the worst shampoos I've ever tried! The top of my hair was super greasy, almost felt like it wasn't completely dried. However, the bottom of my hair was so dry and the texture felt absolutely disgusting. I used it twice and had to stop after the second time because I couldn't even flip my hair, because the top was so greasy. This is the first shampoo bar I've tried, so I don't know a good alternative but if you're in the market for one make sure to stay as far away from this one as possible!

Eyeliner -LUSH -Lush Independent black eyeliner

on 6/21/2018 11:53:00 AM

foto

I DO like the fact that this eyeliner has no odor. I was afraid it may have a slight odor which many liquid eyeliners do have. Many of the drug store eyeliner have a slight odor which I can't explain what it smells like ,but it makes my eyes water. So I generally test it on my hands before applying it to my eyes. This does rub off easily so I wouldn't recommend it for a date night. If he leans in for a kiss the makeup will probably rub off.


Bath Treatments -LUSH -Flowers barrow

Bath oils from Lush have only recently appeared in Japan, so yesterday was my first time to try this. The fragrance is to die for: fresh flowers, I mean it`s literally made from flower petals, and shea and coconut oils, I just couldn`t stop by the tub to sniff while it was filling up and melting the little green ball of oil. The water was oily and perfumed in the most natural and beautiful way imaginable. It really relaxed and moisturized my skin so well, and even this morning, while I was waiting for the train that never came (big earthquake today in Osaka), I could smell a whiff of it on my skin, like an expensive perfume. Possible cons: the leaves could be a pain to remove from the tub, unless you have a sifter. Also, it`s a bit slippery, so watch out when getting in/out of the tub. The price is also up there, but man!, even now my bathroom smells of flowers! (I didn`t bother cleaning the tub, to let the scent linger, that`s how much I love it).

Hair Treatments -LUSH -Shine So Bright (hair balm for split ends)

on 6/17/2018 9:14:00 PM

This is an odd product that has now been discontinued. It comes in a very small tin (the lipbalm tins) and is a solid oil type product. It's a bit difficult to apply and will make your hair hard if you overapply. If applied correctly (a small amount to damp ends) it softens and adds a lot of shine to dry coarse areas. Would repurchase if it was not discontinued.

Moisturizers -LUSH -Celestial

on 6/15/2018 5:00:00 PM

I have been acne-free for over three months so I thought I'd get out of my comfort zone of basic moisturisers. Huge mistake. Celestial broke me out after only two days of use - three painful cysts on my chin, which will take a few weeks to heal. Damn! Must be the cocoa butter in it. With this one I think I have finally weaned myself off any natural products, as they always contain oils, shea butter or similar ones and these are never good for my acne skin.
