I bought this today and I love it. I had used one of Lush's other solid shampoos in the past, Reincarnate which is now part of the retro range & can only be bought online. I found reincarnate extremely hard to lather. I was worried this would be an issue with Godiva but my worries were quickly dispelled. This lathers so well & so quickly! It smells like a cloud of jasmine & made my hair squeaky clean. I had read other reviews claiming it dries hair out but upon rinsing it out I didn't notice my hair feeling drier than when I use other shampoos. I used Lush's Veganese conditioner afterwards & my hair has dried soft & shiny & smelling divine. This routine has also brought out my natural wave! I know that this is meant to be a 2 in 1 shampoo but I don't think it is. However I bought this with the intention of using a conditioner in conjunction with it anyway so I couldn't be happier! I am only giving it 4 instead of 5 however because whether it bothers me personally or not it does fail to meet its conditioning claims.

I love the smell of Godiva but I don't like how drying it is. On the first week of purchase, it made my hair feel so soft but now, my scalp and my hair have become so dry. Another conditioner definitely needs to be paired up with it and maybe even some of that Snake Oil at Lush. But no, I wouldn't be purchasing it again. I'm pretty sure there are other bar shampoos that aren't as drying from companies that focus on selling natural shampoo and henna dyes.
Lush is a hit, but their shampoos are a miss for me.
P.S. If any of you still have the product, don't use it on a daily basis. You have to alternate between shampoos to avoid extreme dryness.

This was a 2 in 1 shampoo? I would have never known considering how drying it is. I used this a couple of years ago, loved the smell but that was about it. Hair became static and untamed, super dehydrated and unhealthy looking. Was not impressed overall.

This isn't quite a no, but not quite a yes...a solid maybe?
This is meant to be a solid 2 in 1 shampoo/conditioner.
Now I love the concept. I travel alot, and this theoretically, takes up no space, comes in a cute tin, and works. The reality...not so much.
The product itself isn't too bad - a yellowish solid bar, about the size of a small hockey puck (I'm Canadian; if I can't think about hockey in the shower, my day is a fail.) It smells strongly of jasmine, which I personally love but many people will hate. Jasmine is a love it or loathe it thing, and that's okay, we are all snowflakes. LOL.
This lathers up well and leaves my hair squeaky clean. All good...
Conceptual Reality Check!!! This little puck is not a 2 in 1. I need a separate conditioner, a DEEP conditioner. Which negates the convenience of a 2 in 1. This really strips my hair. I have a chin length bob - I can't imgaine how this would f*&k up you ladies with long hair. Please stay away. For the sake of your hair.
And this litttle puck turns to soup unless you thoroughly dry it before putting it back in the tin. 'Cause when I'm travelling I have tons of time to leave things on the counter to dry...in a hotel room that I just checked out of, on a heaving ship, you see my point.
Bottom line: it was a cute concept, expensive, didn't perform to standard, and smelled good. Pretty much sums up my entire Lush experience.

I am obsessed with LUSH as a whole, but this product in particular, is just not one of my favorites. I bought this on a whim while picking up more of my beloved Ocean Salt, and I simply could not resist the smell of this solid bar. Upon using it, I was extremely disappointed. For starters, there is NO WAY that this could possibly pass as a shampoo and conditioner. You need a separate conditioner, no doubt about that. I paired this with LUSH's solid shampoo, Big, and even that did not give impressive results. Also, the sales associate told me that I would only need to do three strokes on my head and would get enough product, but I found that without about five, I was not able to get a decent lather. While it smells great in the bar and while you use it, the smell does not seem to last once you rinse it out. I think that my biggest complaint about this bar, however, is the way that it made my hair feel. My hair felt dry and just a tangled mess.
I took this bar with me while on vacation because it is easy to travel with, even though I knew that I did not like it, and that is the last time that I used it or ever will again. After each use, I had to go back and use Redken Smooth Lock and Diamond Oil to give my hair some soft of soft and healthy feel again.
For 11.95 USD, this would have been a great buy if it worked for me, but since it does not, I will not buy again.
EDIT: I have taken this down to one lippie because as I was attempting to finish this bar up to not waste money, I suddenly developed a dry and occasionally flaky scalp. It was SO DISGUSTING and i have never been more upset with a shampoo in my life... I have thrown this bar away, would NEVER repurchase or recommend.

Love love love the smell while lathering it on, so rich and flowery, good thing is it doesn't stay in your hair as strong as it does while lathering it.
This shampoo says it's a 2-in-1 but I don't use conditioner when I previously used Seanik (the blue one) and my hair felt just as nice so I guess it kinda doesn't make much of a difference for me. But I do usually use leave in conditioner while I'm drying my hair coz I have super dry ends (from what I have no idea, no dye no perm and no straightening).
Reason why I'd repurchase this product over Seanik or the other solid shampoos LUSH has is coz of the smell, just too gorgeous to resist haha.

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
