The fresher the henna, the better the effect. As packaging is very poor, use product on day of purchase if you want to achieve the best possible results. Messy application, leave in and washing off (very messy washing off), yet the best hair conditioner I have come across. It thickens the hair, leaving it with a very distinctive, spicy scent and a shiny lustrous look. If your hair is wavy, it would affect the waves and make the hair straighter. For grey hair coverage, I could do with a better coverage and not having to dye my hair every 2-3 weeks. On the other hand, the more often you apply it the blackest the result will be. It also tackles another aging-related hair condition such as the progressive thinning. The henna molecules "stick" to the hair closing its pores and adding weight and thickness to the hair. Moreover, if bought from a reputable source -as Lush claims to do- it is a product relatively free of impurities. You can rest assured that this is the less aggressive coloring you can subject your hair to. The rest of the "natural" hair coloring products in the market (ie. Naturtin, Aveda), have sulfates and other components required for the colour to arise that are damaging your hair just as much as other over the counter products. Brilliant results, yet it requires discipline and patience in order to stick to a fortnightly messy colouring. Will keep on repurchasing and reusing. The name, by the way, means sh*** in more than 3 languages, it shows a supine ignorance and the dumbest lack of cultural awareness from the brand. Being marketed in a multicultural city such as London it just makes them look plain retarded.
Treatments (Eye) -StriVectin - SD Eye Concentrate for Wrinkles

Horrible!!! It irritated my eyes to make them look 20 years older after just one week of am-pm use!! Fine lines became more noticeable, the eye contour was dry and itchy, very uncomfortable!! I decided to give it some time to work, but after 3 weeks of use I developed a dermatitis and had to go on to apply aloe vera to stop the area from peeling out and itching like hell. Totally agree with the rest of negative reviews, it is WAY to aggressive. It might work wonders in mature skins, I don't know. What I do know is that it is not a suitable product for the first signs of aging or for a remotely sensitive skin. For £50 a tube, a disgraceful choice!!!
Conditioner -Unlisted Brand - Green People - Moisturising Conditioner

Quite expensive for the effect it has. It does not leave my dry coarse hair particularly moisturized. I have to use a lot of product to get any results, which means that I need a tube every 5-6 washes. At £10.95 a bottle I would expect more. Also, the claim of it being organic is a misleading one, as there are elements in the formulation which are not organic at all. The shampoo from the same range does a better job as it lasts longer. Switched to A'kin. Better smell, leaves my hair considerably softer and easier to handle and I need way less product. The extra £5 I have to pay for double the amount of conditioner is way worth.
Treatments (Eye) -Unlisted Brand - Green People Eye Cream (night)

After using both the night treatment and the eye gel for more than two months, I noticed no improvement on my fine lines. The product has no noticeable scent, does sink into the skin quickly and has had no side effects whatsoever. It works as a light moisturizer for younger skins, but totally ineffective as an anti-aging cream. A pity, considering how difficult is to find a non-irritating eye treatment with so little "nasty" chemicals in the formulation. Price is quite affordable, being less the £10, another rare feature for a green product. I would not repurchase as it has not tackled or improved the fine lines around my eyes in any noticeable way.
