I have about 20% gray hair that I have been dying with PPD based chemicals. However when I got involved in photography, I learned that these PPD are the same thing that is used to develop color film. Which freaked me out. As, I have recently quit smoking I decided to try to eliminate as many toxins from my life as possible so I colored my hair with this. I used 2 blocks for my thinning medium length hair. I poured some boiling water over the cut up blocks and they melted pretty easily. I added a dash of salt to help the indigo and mixed it to a batter-like consistency. The smell didn't bother me, but I am a fan of natural scents. I left the henna mix on unwrapped for more blue tones for about 4 and a half hours. Washing it off, I used a bunch of cheap conditioner to get the color out and shampooed a little bit. When I dried my hair, it was bouncy, full of volume and a dark chesnut brown color. I can only hope it gets darker. But my grays are mostly colored and the texture of my hair is AMAZING. Like shiny and full. I would give it a try if I were you.
I have sensitive red, dry yet bumpy skin. Although this mask was meant for older skin, being 27 I figured I would give it a try. However, this mask ( my first Lush mask!) dried my skin out and made it feel tight. I guess it does the job of tightening the face, but being that it is winter and my face is already relatively dry, it isn't something I would buy again. Hoping my next Lush Mask is better suited to me. Edited to add- The second time I used this, it broke me out so bad and gave me WELTS. This is the worst stuff I have ever put on my face. I am a LUSH devotee, but I am questioning all thier skincare now.
I was given this a sample when I was looking at AOBS and didn't think much of it. I don't even like toners really and don't see the point. However, this is lovely and actually does something to my skin. I was putting straight lavender on my face, which left it slightly irritated, but the distilled rose and lavender oil in this is helping my dry, yet break out prone face immensely. My only gripe is the price and the parabens. Seriously, Lush get your act together on that. But I will repurchase because of the soft and smooth skin I have been getting.
I am really enjoying this so far. At first I had a few minor breakouts and small bumps, probably due to the oil content, which my skin wasn't used to. However, after a few weeks, my skin is dewy, soft and just looks fresh. I will be repurchasing for sure. Edit- this has totally sorted my skin out. It looks better than it ever has and I am loving this stuff morning and night.
