Smells like jasmine. Which i guess I don't like that much but I don't hate it. I don't see how anyone could use this as a two in one. You need conditioner otherwise you gonna look a hot mess. Lathers well. And gets the hair really clean.
While I usually like the scent of most LUSH products.... This is NOT one. I reeeally wanted to like this.... great concept, great ingredients, and I love the scent of Jasmine.... so much that I even named my Himalayan kitty after this heavenly flower. I purchased this to try out even though I wasn't thrilled with the cold sniff test at the store, hoping that it would smell better or different after wet. Not so, can't detect any Jasmine at all, but I seem to be in the minority here. I'm disappointed and can't get passed the smell, but still love you LUSH.... and happy to see others are enjoying this shampoo!
I am a long-time user of Lush products and this shampoo bar is a recent repurchase.
I do enjoy the smell, which some have said doesn't last long, but I find if you only use the shampoo and let your hair air dry (which I do with my natural waves from time to time), the scent is always present.
The lather is wonderful and works great at cleaning your hair for a solid shampoo. The bar does claim to be a 2 in 1 and condition as well as cleanse. With thicker, colour treated hair, you will need a conditioner post shampoo. Really enjoy the smell, the lather and the overall effect. Hair did feel softer and easy to style but required further conditioning.
The price isn't terrible, but can be misleading because you feel that for $11.95 CDN, you are not getting a product that will last. A little truly does go a long way with this bar.
Since the repurchase, it has not left my shower. Very pleased with it.
I love the smell !!! but it doesnt last long:( i didnt use conditioner after cause the lady at lush told me it was a 2 in 1 and due to my oily scalp i didnt need extra conditioning ,I also love how it didnt take much for me to get a good wash on my thick shoulder lenght hair I will repurchase this to travel too, I will prob try Jumping Juniper since its made to balance oily scalp and also since it smells like Lavender
I like the smell of the Jasmine, it's very strong though. I would use it as a shampoo but not 2 in 1. I had to use a conditioner after this as my hair was left too dry.
I love the smell of jasmine so scent wise it is perfect for me. The smell lingers a little bit in my hair, I however would love for it to have a strong linger. It says it is a shampoo and conditioner in one but this tangles my hair to much for me not to use a conditioner. My hair feels wonderfully soft once it is dry if I don't use a conditioner, but the notes just aren't worth it. I jus use any conditioner after wards and my hair is soft, smells faintly of jasmine and I can brush my hair easily.
I bought a tin to put it in and was told to put a piece of ribbon into it so that it is easy to flip the tip of and absorb the water if the puck is still a little wet. This worked amazingly for me so that is what I would suggest you do as I know many people complain about the puck getting stuck to the bottom.
I would my a lush solid shampoo bar again but I want to try another one. They are great to travel with and that is when I use mine.
I'm a fan of Godiva. It's easy to use, one bar will last me a month (I wash my hair every morning) and I enjoy the scent. Godiva does not dry out my hair (I have very dry/damaged hair) but I don't have the same results as alot of others. I still have to use a conditioner afterwards. I've since moved on to Trichomania because I need more moisture, but I would buy Godiva again.
I started bying LUSH becuase I am practically homeless, I work in peoples homes and I travel a lot, I need my stuff to be travel friendly, I dont want any leaky bottles in my luggage. So I went to LUSH asking for something that smells like Jasmine. They gave me this and Flying Fox. Many points that I already wrote about in my Flying Fox review are the same as here. But first of all this shampoo dries out my hair terribly. I also have Soak and Float and my hair loves that one (and i do love the smell of that). Other point is that when I go swimming the smell of pool water + Lush Godiva or Flying Fox = smells shit. I was embarrassed to walk around smelling like that. I felt very uncomfortable about it. I Love jasmine but this is way too sweet for me and strange combined with my favorite hobby.
As everyone else has said, this shampoo/conditioner bar smells gorgeous. I had never used a shampoo bar before, so it was tricky the first time. A few swipes and I had a lovely lather going. What I found odd was how it left my hair with that squeaky clean feeling. Considering the moisture it has, I was expecting a little more slip. I paired it with American Cream and my hair STILL felt tangled and snarled while wet. After an application of leave in conditioner, a VERY careful comb out and a blow dry, my hair looked lovely. It actually even looked a little brighter. Other than the brief hay like feel afterwards, I am happy for now.
The LUSH SA gave me a great tip: After using the bar, dry out the tin and sit the bar on its side in it until it is dry. No sticky, mushy mess!
UPDATE: I have been flipping my hair back and forth like a Pantene commercial to get a whiff of Godiva's wonderful scent. Surely I am not the only one.
UPDATE again: I discovered that it was actually the Snake Oil bar that was making my hair tangled, after just using this, I had better results.
I just simply LOVE Godiva. The smell is absolutely gorguous. So sweet and intoxicating, and I can smell it long after I washed my hair. After I shower, I put the bar in my bedroom on a tray to dry so the whole room smells like heaven.
It lasts quite some time but I can imagine it falling apart when it's almost finished. I think that's because of the little pieces of conditioner in the shampoo.
But the smell isn't the only reason I love Godiva. I also love the concept of solid shampoobars. They're easy to transport, don't take much space and are good for the environment. What more can you wish for?
I never use conditioner after using Godiva (wouldn't want to ruin the scent) and my hair is perfectly soft and very healty. I leave it to dry in the air and only comb it through AFTER it's dry. So no problems with tangles. I do have to add that my hair does not reach to my shoulders, so that probably has some effect as well.
