Lush Hair Products: Trichomania Shampoo And American Cream Conditioner

Product Reviews, Uncategorized

Hello beauties, like many women my hair is my security blanket, so it’s very important to me to keep it looking healthy, shiny and soft. That’s easier said then done when you have long and coloured hair. For the past two years I have also suffered from increased hair shedding so have to be careful not to make the issue worse, that’s why I thought of Lush. It is well known that they make all their products with natural and safe ingredients that are extremely gentle and I’m yet to have a bad reaction to one or their products. I have been trying out the shampoo and conditioner that I am reviewing today for around two weeks now to be able to give them a fair review.

Trichomania Solid Shampoo

Ultra-hydrating, we’ve used protein-rich creamed coconut to coat each strand with moisture to leave hair soft and strong. This cares for your scalp too. Gently stroke a few times directly onto the scalp or lather between the fingertips and work into the hair for a thick and foamy shampoo. Rinse off and condition as needed.

This shampoo is a little different to what I usually use, shampoo normally comes in a liquid form but this comes in a solid bar, I think it’s a great idea as it cuts out the packaging, is easy to use just like a soap and it ended up stopping me using too much, which is something I always tend to do with a liquid.

One of the main ingredients in this shampoo is creamed coconut, which is great for treating dry hair and giving it a moisture boost, as I colour my hair this is a massive win for me. I noticed just how squeaky clean my roots were (my hair gets oily fast!) without being drying. The bar lathers up really well which means that it will last you longer as you don’t need to use a lot of product. This has a very light scent of coconut but nothing overpowering, it’s actually the least pungent of all the shampoo’s Lush has to offer.

This costs £7.80 for 120g but you can ask someone in store to cut larger or smaller pieces and the price will vary. I will definitely be buying this again, I’ve noticed since using that I don’t have to wash my hair as much as it keeps it cleaner for a extra day!.

American Cream Hair Conditioner

A strawberry-loving, milkshake-scented cheerleader for silky Hollywood hair. Warning: has been known to bring boys to the yard. Indulge in this rich and divinely perfumed hair conditioner for shiny, addictively sweet locks you’ll want to swish all over town. Fresh strawberries gently cleanse the hair, while a splash of orange juice encourages the cuticles to lie flat and reflect more light for seriously gorgeous gloss.

Conditioners can be hit or miss is my opinion, it’s so hard to find one that’s light enough not to weigh your hair down and make it look greasy and that can also provide soft and shiny locks.

The first thing that originally drew me to buy this conditioner was the scent, I love a heavily perfumed conditioner because I want it to linger in my hair after. This has a gorgeous vanilla scent mixed with flowers, it’s so girly and pretty.

Ingredients include fresh strawberries which cleanse the hair, orange juice to keep the hair glossy and clary sage and lavender to pamper the scalp.

I noticed that you need to use quite a lot of product to cover your hair as this has a very thin formula, which is a little annoying as it’s not as cost effective as some conditioners are but it does make my hair look extremely shiny after. I’m willing to pay the money for more bottles just for how long the smell lingers in my hair, I can still smell it three days later!.

This costs £10.95 for 240g, they’re smaller or larger options available for different prices.

I’m extremely happy with both products, anything that makes my clean hair last longer. I also forgot to mention above that my hair hasn’t been shedding as much thanks to the gentle and natural ingredients. I definitely recommend going into your local Lush store as they have tons of different options for all kinds of hair types, they also do free samples for you to test before committing to buying a full size.

Lush Valentines Haul 2018

Hauls, Product Reviews, Uncategorized

Hello beauties, Happy Valentine’s Day!. I decided to buy myself my own valentines present this year. To me from me, basically any excuse to justify spending. I love Lush products in general but even more so when they bring out their seasonal bits!.

Lush Kiss Me Quick Wash Card £2

A kiss on the hand may be quite continental but the apple pulp in this wash card will make your skin your best friend in no time! Much cheaper than diamonds, this glorious lather will cover you with the love and passion you deserve. Dazzle your body with the scent of spicy, clove bud oil and sweet mimosa absolute that will have you begging for more. Don’t be fooled, the tonka inside gives sweet over notes that leave this wash card a devious addition to any shower or bath encounter.

I had never tried out a wash card before now so had to ask the lovely lady in my local Lush store how to use them. Wash cards are basically shower gel in card form that lather up when you run it under water. This has a spicy scent to it and what I love most about this is that it lingers on skin for ages after using. I was pleasantly surprised at how soft this left my skin too. I will defiantly be picking up more of these in different scents as they are only £2 and I can see them lasting ages!.

Lush Unicorn Horn Bubble Bar £4.50

Relaxing lavender oil meets mood-brightening neroli in this lustre-filled bar. Neroli oil increases serotonin levels in the brain which makes us feel contented and cheery, so you can ponder the existence of magical creatures while building a fairytale landscape of feel-good, fragrant bubbles.

This is my all time favourite in the Valentines Collection, I stock up on it every year. I love the pretty unicorn horn shape and the pastel colours, Lush always deliver when it comes to creativity. This has a gorgeous relaxing lavender scent with a mix of sharp citrus. It’s super calming when crumbled under running water and creates the most luxurious bubbles.

Lush Whole Lotta Love Bubbleroon £4.75

Crumble beneath a nice hot running tap,

And watch the bubbles foam and grow and rise.

Whether you met in town or on an app

Jump in a bath and look deep into their eyes.

A cheeky scent that makes your warm heart sing

You can detect a whiff of floral rose

You hark right back to young loves dream this Spring

As bergamot rises and fills your nose

So long as scent exists or eyes can see,

Our whole lotta love gives life to me.

Another new release is this heart shaped bubbleroon, it works the same way that a bubble bar does but has a layer of softening butter in the middle. I love the heart design and the fresh floral scent. This makes the water a bright pink colour and leaves your skin feeling so soft after having bathed in it.

Lush Cherryish Body Scrub £7.95

Romeo and Juliet, they never felt this way I bet, but they didn’t have this chocolate and cherry delight to keep things smoothed over. Cherish skin with a moisturising scrub of Fair Trade organic cocoa butter and fine sea salt. As you stroke this mouth-watering handful over wet skin, a second helping of ground cherry stones help to get the blood flowing. With warm and uplifting cocoa absolute and a touch of sweet almond essential oil, you’ll be asking for more, more, more!

This is my favourite out of this haul, I love a body scrub and was so excited to smell this one as it smells like chocolate and cherry. To use simply rub in circular motions onto wet skin. It buffs away any dead dry skin and leaves it looking smooth and shiny. I love that this has cocoa butter in as this keeps your skin full of moisture.

Lush Christmas Bathtime Favourites

Hauls, Product Reviews, Uncategorized

Hello beauties, I have been loving reading all the ‘What I got for Christmas’ posts and although I don’t plan on doing a detailed one of what I received I did want to do a review on this fab gift set that my boyfriend got me (he knows me well or just thinks I smell haha).

IMG_0665 (2)

I love how creative Lush were this Christmas and loved nearly all of their limited edition Xmas products. This set is called the Christmas Bathtime Favourites and inside you will find nine of their Christmas themed bath bombs!. I love the packaging of this box, especially the purple ribbon that makes it look so fancy. I will definitely be keeping the hat box in my bathroom to store my lush goodies in throughout the year.

IMG_0674 (2)

Sherbet Dip bath bomb 185g

As it’s name suggests it’s shaped just like the sherbet lemon sweets and I think this is such a fun idea!. It has a mouthwatering scent of lemon and contains lemon, grapefruit and orange essential oils and makes the bath water a luminous yellow.

Butter Bear bath bomb 75g

This adorable bear shaped bear bomb is one of my favourites for how soft it makes your skin after the bath. It smells like chocolate and vanilla. However it isn’t very exciting in the water but does make you gorgeously smooth thanks to the cocoa butter.

Snow Fairy jelly bomb 180g

This one I am kind of nervous about trying, after trying the ‘dark arts’ jelly bomb and that being a total fail. The jelly getting all stuck in my hair (was such a nightmare). It smells like the typical bubble gum sweet scent of the Snow Fairy range and it does look really appealing. However I will be using this on a day I don’t need to wash my hair. Fingers crossed there isn’t the same horrendous clean up that I had before. Pray for me!.

Shoot For The Stars bath bomb 200g

I LOVE the appearance of this bath bomb, a bright blue bomb with golden embedded stars. This makes a gorgeous blue explosion and leaves magical glittery water. It has a sweet toffee scent and the stars are made of body butter which melts to leave you beautifully soft.

Golden Wonder bath bomb 200g

Shaped like a present, it is the perfect gift or Christmas themed bath bomb for the festive season. This feels really heavy when held in the hand and really peaks my interest on what’s inside and what colour it makes the water. Spoiler! It makes a gorgeous blue and green explosion and leaves the water blue. It has a fresh citrusy scent.

IMG_0681 (2)

Nevermind The Ballistics bath bomb 200g

With the Sex Pistol name reference this bath bomb had to be cool. It is a bomb that is dipped in a butter melt coating and has a orange scent thanks to the orange oils. This makes silky orange water and is very appealing to watch once it’s been placed in the tub.

Luxury Lush Pud bath bomb 200g

It is not Christmas without a Christmas pudding and I love all the colours in this aptly themed bath bomb. With a scent of lavender and Tonka it is a very calming smell, perfect for bedtime. It starts of foaming pink then explosions of different colours start appearing it’s amazing!leaving a rich pink water.

Christmas Sweater bath bomg 200g

This is such a creative idea for a bath bomb for Christmas, we all love the tacky Christmas jumpers which it is designed to look like. Offering a warm and spiced scent to make you feel toasty and relaxed. Perfect for the colder weather. This makes deep red and and orange foamy water.

Thundersnow bath bomb 200g

Looking just like it’s name ‘thunderstorm’ this fun mix of colours makes me intrigued to see the result in the water. With a peppermint and cocoa scent which is so heavenly, something that will give you a real pick me up. Making a explosion of blue and green water.

I hope you liked this review, I can’t wait to get started using all these bombs, they are way too pretty to use mind!

Lush Twilight Haul

Hauls, Product Reviews, Uncategorized

I am back with another Lush haul, not so long ago I was introduced to the Sleepy body lotion and I adored the scent, so when I heard that lush were bringing out more goodies with the same smell in their Christmas range I just had to give them a try. For those who haven’t read the sleepy review you can find it here.

Twilight shower gel -£9.95 250g

I was so excited that this came into the Lush stores, I would often see it in the Lush kitchen but it would always sell out. I’m in love with the soothing lavender scent, mixed with sweet tonka and ylang ylang. This is the perfect shower gel to either run under your bath water to create luxurious bubbles or to use as intended in the shower to wash with, it lathers up really well and you only need a small amount. I will be stocking up on this as I love how the smell lingers and it leaves me so smooth.

Twilight sparkle jar -£6.95

I have tried two of the massage bars from Lush before and enjoyed both of them. They are solid body butters and this particular one has a shimmer effect. You place them into your hand and the natural heat from your body softens them until they are ready to rub on your body. I’m excited to use this over the Christmas period as it leaves a glossy effect on the skin. You can use by itself or you can pierce the two holes on the front to ‘ open’ the jar. Inside is sparkle dust that will give you a intense shimmer look on the skin. Along with the gorgeous sweet lavender smell.

Twilight bath bomb -£3.95

I normally opt for a bubble bar rather then a bath bomb as I think they are better value for money as you can cut them and get multiple uses out of them (I know know I am a cheap skate). But I thought I would treat myself to this one timer. I love the moon and star design, very suitable for the ‘sleep inducing’ theme that this range carries. When I placed it in the bath it started fizzing around leaving rich purple and pink water with glitter, it left my skin feeling very soft and left behind the lavender scent. However it did require a little clean up after which is another reason I prefer a bubble bar!
