Lush Cosmetics Haircare Haul
Lush Cosmetics, without a shadow of a doubt, is by far one of my most treasured places to stop by and pick up my beauty essentials. Each time I go in to explore I find something new to experiment with. As I glance at my stash of beauty products, I note I use cleansers, moisturisers, shower gels, bath bombs and even deodorant from Lush now. It couldn’t possibly hurt to add to this ever growing collection could it?
For once, I am not entirely to blame for this spontaneous haul, the blame in fact lies with Megan from Wonderful You.
Megan came to stay with me and brought along her Lush shampoo and said I could try it if I wanted to – rooky mistake, NEVER try a fellow blogger’s beauty products – your bank balance will only cry later.
Clearly, I fell in love with it and there I was, a few weeks later, Lush shopping bag in hand. I somehow managed to pick up a conditioner and a hair mask as well as the shampoo – convincing myself that this was absolutely necessary.
Fairly Traded Honey shampoo, simply smells delicious. In a nut shell, it knocks Herbal Essence orgasmic adverts out of the park, yes it smells THAT good. Packed with honey, beeswax and essential oils this shampoo is going to replenish your hair and restore all of the moisture it needs to stay shiny. It also contains Neroli which is toning and really uplifting. Yup, it is more than the average shampoo you will pick up in your local supermarket, but my hair has never felt so soft or smelt so good. There are 3 sizes available, including a mini travel size bottle. The price ranges from £7-£24.
Veganese, a lightweight conditioner also carrying a beautiful fragrance. This is made from seaweed, lemon oil, lavender and rosemary. This really softens my hair but at the same time really sooths my scalp. I know that sounds strange, but when you’ve just been scrubbing at your hair to get it squeaky clean, to then use a conditioner which has a calming effect is a rather pleasant experience. I’m used to thick, creamy conditioners, so to use this was a nice change. I would definitely recommend this for those with fine hair as I imagine it wouldn’t weigh the hair down at all.
I haven’t yet used Marilyn, a hair treatment designed specifically for blonde hair! It sounded perfect for me as I have just had the sh*t bleached out of my locks and I really need to take care of it, more so than before. When you bleach hair it sucks all of the life out of it and you really need to ensure you feed it with protein, vitamins and moisture to get a strong, healthy condition back.
This treatment contains olive oil, which strengthens the hair shaft to help prevent any breakage, as well as Linseed to nourish and protect the hair. Packed with lemon, chamomile and saffron essential oils to help brighten in turn giving you that sun kissed feel. Marilyn can also help prevent the hair from going “brassy” – that horrible tarnished yellow look which my hair does tend to do after having bleach put on it.
As a pre-wash treatment, I would stick this on for as long as possible before then washing it out. I will keep you posted as to how I get on with this, although I highly doubt I will ever have anything negative to say about a single Lush product.
