Review: New LUSH Hair Care Products

 

 

It’s all I can do to not use Roots Healthy Scalp Cream every day. I am obsessed with the fresh mint smell and the way it makes my scalp feel tingly fresh. When I first read I was supposed to massage into my hair for 15-20 minutes I thought that sounded crazy. Once I got this magic product on my hair I didn’t want to stop it was the most amazing feeling so fresh and invigorating. And my hair and scalp both feel ridiculously good.

If you are looking for something special to do for the guy/girl in your life for Valentine’s? Give them a scalp massage with Lush’s Roots they will be on cloud 9 and will be sure to repay such kindness.

Roots Healthy Scalp Cream ($19.95): Fine hair can be finicky, so this treatment is packed full of ingredients to revitalize from root to end. There’s honey to soften along with some extra virgin olive oil to strengthen and condition the hair. Menthol stimulates the scalp and encourages hair to grow to its full length, giving the appearance of thicker hair.

I love this shampoo it looks and smells like thick banana pudding. I love the fresh banana scent but if you are not a banana lover no fear the scent washes right out as your rinse. I have color treated coppery red hair with blonde highlights and within a few days use of Blousey my color has become so much brighter and shine for days. It leaves my hair soft and feeling much healthier. 

Blousey Shampoo ($25.95): Feeling lousy? Use Blousey! LUSH’s first-ever shampoo specifically for color-treated hair will revitalize, restore, and have hair looking remarkable in no time. Nourishing bananas lock-in moisture and are extremely softening and conditioning. Hair is left feeling incredibly loved and smelling of rose, blackcurrant and juniperberry, with a little thyme and rosemary oils thrown in to repair the scalp. (Vegan)

Happy Happy Joy Joy  makes my hair smell amazing, the rose water scent is so great and I don’t even need perfume when I use it! I love how lightweight the product is, my hair is manageable and so soft and shiny.  I do have a lot of hair so I need a good amount to cover all my hair but it has been working wonders on my dry, color treated hair.

Happy Happy Joy  Joy Conditioner ($12.95 -$39.95):Finally, another vegan conditioner! A rose water, orange blossom water and almond milk base soften, beautify and condition hair. It works wonderfully on bleached and over-processed hair, and on everyone else too as it is rich and moisturizing, but doesn’t weigh hair down.

Shine So Bright helps keep my fine hair looking great even after blow drying and flat ironing. I just run my fingers over the product a few times then apply to the tips of my hair. It works perfect to brighten up and condition the dry parts of my hair without weighing down the rest.

Shine So Bright ($9.95): Hate going to the salon just to get rid of split ends? Well, say no more! This balm will reduce the appearance of split ends while making the hair shine so bright with Extra Virgin olive oil, fresh free-range eggs and fair trade coconut oil.

Celebrate Bubble Bath Day with LUSH on Tuesday, January 8th!

This Tuesday, Jan. 8th is Bubble Bath Day and LUSH wants you to have some fun in the tub! LUSH is the original creator of bath bombs—but we also have other goodies like bath melts and bubble bars, to make your bath a paradise. In fact, in 2011, LUSH used 985 pounds of baking soda to make over 4.1 million Bath bombs. So this Tuesday, draw some water and hop on in!

BATH BOMBS
LUSH was the original creator of the bath bomb. They are made primarily of baking soda and citric acid (fermented citrus sugars) and beautiful essential oils. To use, toss one into a full hot bath and watch as it releases essential oils, softens the water and turns your bath into beautiful colors.

Blackberry Bath Bomb ($6.35)
This delicious, legendary bath bomb has a delightfully fruity blend of blackcurrant and bergamot essential oils to lift spirits, inspire confidence and relieve depression. It is also seasoned with a smattering of frankincense, traditionally used to relieve nervous tension and stress. Drop this uplifting berry burst of purple goodness into the bath to blow away sad thoughts and launch you into a bright new day full of unlimited potential. (Vegan)

Sex Bomb Bath Bomb ($6.65)
Sex Bomb is a volatile mix of the most potent aphrodisiacs known to man, used not only for their seismic effects on the emotions, but also for their excellent skin-softening and regenerative properties. Jasmine, a symbol of feminine beauty and sweetness, has long been used in love potions to stimulate the senses. Euphoric clary sage is added for its aphrodisiac qualities, and deliciously seductive ylang ylang helps soften and smooth the skin – the combination will make you feel like a love goddess.

BATH MELTS
These luxury bath melts were created to make skin feel like it was dipped in lotion by combining cocoa butter and essential oils. Unlike ordinary bath oils, these melts emulsify into the entire bath and coat your body like a milk bath. To use, drop one into a hot running bath.

Dreamtime Bath Melt ($6.25)
Dreamtime is a creamy luxury bath melt designed to be used before bedtime to soften skin and calm your troubled head so you can go straight to bed and sleep soundly. It contains cocoa butter and almond oil, which melt in the bath water and gently soften skin, while the scented blend of chamomile, sandalwood, jasmine, lavender and ginger essential oils relax your mind and help your worries fade away. Drifting off into a peaceful sleep has never been easier than after a warm bath with a Dreamtime bath melt. Sweet dreams! (Vegan)

BUBBLE BARS
LUSH Bubble Bars use cream of tartar and Cocamide (coconut derived) to make thicker, smaller bubbles to last through the entire bath and to soften your skin. These truly create that “Hollywood-style” bubble bath that you always see in the movies!

The Comforter Bubble Bar ($10.95)
Like your favorite cozy blanket, The Comforter Bubble Bar envelops you with comforting bubbles – it’s perfect for use whenever you’ve had a bad day or just need a hug. Cypress and bergamot oils soothe skin while cassis adds a mysterious and seductive aroma. This velvety berry and cream bath parfait softens all skins with lavish bubbles, and even its shape looks like a rolled up blanket! Polish off your bathing bliss with a scrub of You Snap the Whip Body Butter – your skin and senses will thank you. (Vegan)

LUSH makes bathtime FUN!

I had the chance to check out the Blue FUN and I have to say it lives up to the name. The promise of sculpting little animals at bathtime was the perfect incentive the finish homework and get ready for bed! The kids and I had a ton of fun playing with our moldable FUN soap. Once we had created our masterpieces the kids couldn’t wait to hop in the tub and clean up. This would make a great stocking stuffer for the kid in your life or the adult who needs a little FUN

LUSH introduces FUN.
Who says kids are the only ones that can have a fun bath or shower experience? Certainly not LUSH! Our latest invention is a multi-purpose, moldable soap for your body hair and bath called, you guessed it, FUN! That’s right, you can wash with it; you can bathe with it for masses of bubbles; and you can even mold it into crazy shapes. Perfect for kids who might not like bathtime, adults who are young at heart, teens who like to play in the shower (even if they won’t admit it!), and anyone who loves great smelling, softening soap!

But the fun doesn’t stop at the bathtub; we’re making it our mission to spread the fun to those who need it most, children living in challenging environments. A portion of the global sales (2.5%) of FUN will go into a newly created FunD and will be distributed as grants to projects providing recreational activities for children.


FUN ($6.95 each) comes in FIVE fantastic colors, all which have their own unique scent! Your biggest problem will be which to try first…but we of course recommend collecting them all!
1. YELLOW FUN: A comforting blend of vanilla and gardenia, smells like delicious marzipan.
2. GREEN FUN: An uplifting fragrance with lemon and lime oils that awaken the senses.
3. RED FUN: A fruity combination of orange and mandarin oils to revitalize the mind.
4. BLUE FUN: A gentle, soothing hug in the bath before bedtime using calming oils such as lavender and chamomile.
5. PINK FUN: A sweet treat with ice-cream scented tonka absolute and benzoin resinoid which helps to stimulate circulation.

**FUN is made with a base of corn flour, talc and glycerine, it’s even ideal for bathing beauties with sensitive skin.

FUN makes a great stocking stuffer, birthday gift and is great for families, too!
