Lush Respect Your Elders Soap Review

Hey everyone! First and foremost, I want to briefly go over my method for writing my reviews, so that anyone reading them knows the basis in which my reviews were written. If you’d like to skip straight ahead to the review, just scroll down a little 🙂

Before anything else, my method of course consists of my obtaining a product from Lush. This could be as a gift from somebody, a sample or a full product.

The second step of my method is to try out the product in a “proper” way. This basically just using the product in a way so that I am not wasting any, and in a way that it will actually work to the best of its ability. While doing this, I will be thinking about the product and all its little unique aspects.

The next step to my method is to COMPLETELY finish up the product that I have – be it a sample, miniature size of the product, regular size or anything in between. This is so that I have a fully informed opinion of the product and the entire experience of using it. This is a very important step to me, because reviewing a product after one use, say a soap, is like reading the first page of a book in my eyes. I want to have an opinion of the entire product experience so that afterwards I know how much I truly like, and would like to repurchase, that product or not.

Once the product is completely finished, I upload my review of it!

My overall mission here is to find my favouite of each product type Lush sells, so that I can ultimately just primarily keep repurchasing that one product of that category – so my favourite shampoo, my favourite conditioner, my favourite soap, favourite body wash product etc.

I hope you enjoy my review today!


Respect Your Elders Soap (100g):

Rating: 4/5*

Cons:

This soap becomes absolutely disgusting once you reach the center of the soap. I’m not even joking. It started breaking up into pieces, and those pieces turned pale and kinda grey and honestly, looked like chunks of brain. That’s how my partner described the soap’s appearance once it had reached that point and honestly, I totally agree. It looked so flipping nasty!

Once the soap gets really broken in and turns soft, it doesn’t lather up super easily like it would before. It kinda goes mushy and yeah, it becomes more of a challenge to obtain a proper lather from the product.

I don’t know if this is just because of it being a soap in general or what, but I found this soap to be somewhat drying to my hands. Not extremely so, but definitely somewhat.

The name is… I dunno! It makes me feel like I’m supposed to be an elderly person using the soap or something..? I know that is ridiculous and stupid, I’m just not a fan of the name of this one! It is also a bit of a mouthful to say to be honest!


Pros:

This soap is purple!!! I didn’t take a photo of the soap before I started using it unfortunately (I only actually do that for the bath products I use – I shall get into the habit of photographing my products ASAP!) It is just… ugh. Super flipping gorgeous. It was a very, very dark purple, with a yoghurty lighter purple shade on the top of it. Absolutely gorgeous! Here’s a photo that I have found that looks very similar to how my piece of soap did. I found the image on Becky Bedbug’s blog post:

respect-your-elders-soap

This soap lathers up quite nicely. Before you reach the center of the soap, the soap lathers up absolutely wonderfully. A very creamy lather that appears super easily. Once you reach the center of the soap, the lather is more difficult to obtain but is still very creamy.

The texture of the soap, again, until you reach the center, is lovely. The soap has a rougher, bumpy texture on the top of it, that feels really nice as you massage the bar into your hands. This bumpiness also makes the soap very slightly exfoliating, and allows for a very easy lather. It also makes the soap more interesting!

The smell was lovely. It smelled like dark, rich berries. If you like fruity berry smells then I promise that you’ll love the smell of this soap!

The soap worked well and did its job at cleaning my hands!

Respect Your Elders is slightly moisturising, which is a nice touch.


Overall Conclusion:

Overall, this soap was really nice when I was first using it, before the soap started breaking up into pieces. I was actually really pleasantly surprised by this soap. I have hardly heard anyone speaking about this soap at all – in fact, I think I haven’t actually heard anyone mentioning this soap. It is so nice though, so it is a shame that it doesn’t get much attention! I enjoyed this soap, but it was also far from perfect…

I’m going to rate this soap a 4/5* rating, because it was really nice but could definitely do with some major tweaks!

Products I am working on using up:

Sparkly Pumpkin Bubble Bar
Trichomania Solid Shampoo
Ocean Salt Self Preserving And Alcohol Free Face And Body Scrub

Lush Boo Bath Melt Review

Okay guys, so I only just finished using up this bath melt today… I know, pretty bad considering I received this as a gift from my partner on Halloween last year…

Anyways, I used it up so here is my review of the product! I hope you enjoy!

Side note: I used this bath melt more as a bubble bar… I’m not entirely sure why I had it in my head to use this product as a bubble bar, but I have a feeling the description on the Lush UK website said to use it as a bubble bar or something? I’ve searched everywhere for the UK description of this product and just cannot find it anywhere!

Photos below from left to right, top to bottom: First time I used Boo and the bubbles created before turning on jets, first time I used Boo and the bubbles after turning on the jets, second time I used Boo and the bubbles before turning on jets, second time using boo and the bubbles after turning on jets, Boo bath melt before first use. I was going to include an image of the bath melt before second use too, but it looked kinda gnarly if I’m going to be honest with you, so I thought it would be best not to do that…


Boo Bath Melt:

Rating: 4/5*

Cons:

This was a Halloween exclusive product in 2016, so it isn’t available to purchase at the moment. This also means that IF it is released again, there’s not necessarily a good chance that you’ll be able to get your hands on it again once Halloween is over. It is a pretty exclusive product so if you end up falling in love with it, good luck trying to stock up!

The colour this bath melt leaves the water is pretty basic, and honestly, isn’t that appealing either. It turns the bath water a sort of milky pale green colour… I really don’t know what to think of that, but I think I’m not 100% keen!

The scent is very strong, and I’m not sure if everyone would like it to be honest. It smells very floral. Extremely so. I’m guessing this is mainly due to it containing Geranium oil, but it isn’t just that the scent is extremely floral. The scent is also sort of.. spicy almost, but in a bitter sort of way. I’m guessing that part of the scent is due to the inclusion of ginger oil. The scent definitely catches in your throat slightly. Anyways, if you really aren’t a fan of your florals, you’ve been warned!!!

I actually didn’t find this bath melt to be that moisturising. It was moisturising, don’t get me wrong. It just wasn’t anywhere near as moisturising as I had anticipated it to be I suppose. It is the first bath melt I have used from Lush, so I expected it to be more moisturing than any other Lush bath product I have used in the past, considering that is a bath melt’s main focus. Butterbear Bath Bomb was definitely more moisturising though, and I’m pretty sure Rose Jam Bubbleroon and Tisty Tosty Bath Bomb were too, and probably some other products! If you want to get this product purely for its moisturising factor, I’d not really recommend it for those purposes alone!

This bath melt does produce bubbles, however, those bubbles to disappear throughout one’s time in the bath faster than bubbles produces from other Lush bubble bar products.


Pros:

This product is super cute! Looooooook at how cute he is I mean, c’mon…

This bath melt was moisturising, even if only subtly! 100% more moisturising than normal bath water and than some other Lush bath products.

Some people might like the milky colour of the bath.

This bath melt creates BUBBLES!!! Like, it REALLY creates bubbles!!! Lovely, foamy, fluffy bubbles :3 They filled my entire bath and were just brilliant!

I got 2 uses out of this little guy. TWO USES!

I found the scent to be really nice actually. Very fresh, crisp and clean smelling. I liked it! The sort of scent you’d like your home to smell like.

I received this as part of a gift from my partner, and it made such a cute gift and surprise for halloween! This would make a great halloween gift for the ones you love 😀

The product itself is super creamy, and melts in your hands. This is due to its main ingredient, cocoa butter. Lovely!


Overall Conclusion:

Overall, this was a nice bath product. I definitely didn’t dislike it, in fact, I think I rather liked it! I feel a tad confused about it, because so many others who have used up and reviewed this product have said how they dislike it…

Anyways, I found it to be very fresh, bubbly, simple, somewhat moisturising and the product itself looked super cute before use! I’m going to rate this product a 4/5* rating. It was a really good product – not absolutely amazing, but it was really nice.

I hope you enjoyed my review!

Lush Rose Jam Bubbleroon Review

Hey guys!

I received this Lush product as part of a gift from my partner for my birthday last October, and decided to finally use it for Valentines day before it went bad! I hope you enjoy my review 🙂


Rose Jam Bubbleroon:

Rating: 5/5*

Cons:

 The scent of this bubbleroon is NOT exactly the same as the scent of the Rose Jam shower gel. When in the bath, the scent of this bubbleroon has quite an apparent tangy citrus note to it, which is far more subdued in the shower gel. The ingredients do differ quite a bit between the two products. For example, the shower gel contains vanilla pod infusion as its second top ingredient, giving the shower gel a very sweet aroma throughout use. The bubbleroon however does not even contain any vanilla whatsoever. The shower gel also contains Gogi berry juice, whereas the bubbleroon does not. The difference isn’t extremely major, but it is noticeable when the product is in the bath. Just don’t expect the scent to be EXACTLY the same as Rose Jam shower gel, and instead expect a version of Rose Jam that has a little less sweetness and a little more of a kick to it.

Not only is the scent of this product different to Rose Jam shower gel, I think it is also less nice in my opinion!

I needed to use the entire bubbleroon in one go to get the amount of bubbles I like when I take a bubble bath. Honestly, I forgot to put the bubbleroon under the tap until my bath was already almost full, so I don’t think it had as much of a chance to bubble up as my bubble bars from Lush usually do! None the less, I was surprised I had to use the entire product to get a nice bubbly bath.

After using a bubble bar from Lush, and many times after using a bath bomb too, I find I have to rinse off in the shower afterwards in order to feel completely clean. This bubbleroon was no different, and that additional step can be a little tedious when you’ve already been in the bath for 1-2 hours!


Pros:

This bubbleroon looks so adorable! It is the sweetest bubble bar I’ve ever used! It is a beautiful macaroon style with a gorgeous glittery rose design on the top of it! As cute as a button 🙂

This bubbleroon is really moisturising. All of that cocoa butter frosting in the center, along with all the oils they add to the bubbleroon, produce a lovely, moisturising bath. Highly recommend!

The scent, although not as nice as the Rose Jam shower gel, was still alright in the bath. Nothing incredibly amazing, but it was alright.

Out of the bath, this bubbleroon smells amazing!

The entire experience with this bubbleroon is really feminine – a gorgeous rose macaroon style bubble bar that produces a fluffy bubbly girly scented pink bath! I used mine on Valentines day and it suited the mood of the day absolutely brilliantly. It really made me feel more feminine than usual and is definitely a romantic bubbleroon too!

The bath water produced from this bubbleroon will be a rosey pinky red colour, which for some reason reminded me of the colour of pomegranate juice! It is definitely more of a pinky red than a reddish pink, if that makes any sense at all. Either way, I thought the colour was absolutely gorgeous!

The bubbles this bubbleroon produce make the bath extra relaxing. The bubbles themselves are fluffy and fill the entire bath tub (at least if you have bath jets and use them like I did.)

The whole concept and scent and absolutely everything about this bubbleroon made me feel super pampered and lovely!


Overall Conclusion:

Overall, I really enjoyed this bubbleroon. It is an absolutely amazing product, and the only real improvements I could suggest for it would be for it to be made bigger and for its scent to be made a little closer to the shower gel’s.

I’m going to rate this bubbleroon… Hmm, this is actually difficult. It is either a 4 or 5/5* rating. I love how moisturising it is, and the whole pamperesque experience of using this bubbleroon. It is just the scent that makes me think perhaps the product is more of a 4* than a 5*. I’m going to give it a 5/5* rating, because although the scent in the bath wasn’t great, the positive aspects of this bubbleroon far outweigh that factor.

I hope you enjoyed my review! I HIGHLY recommend trying this bubbleroon or gifting one to a loved one. It is lovely!

My sexuality history?

I’m writing this post because I find different people’s sexuality development sort of interesting. Perhaps people think that’s weird, but I think the amount of variety in different people is just really cool! I also think it’s good to feel comfortable with how you are, and sometimes when somebody else talks about how they are, it makes you feel more comfortable with how you are… (if that makes any sense?!?)

I dunno. I just watched Emma Blackery’s youtube video on being sexually confused, which sort of got me thinking about all of this.

I don’t generally like to talk about my sexuality, because to me it is private and honestly, isn’t really a big deal. I just for some reason felt interested in writing a post about it today, so here it is!

If you don’t really give a fuck and are not interested in reading then guess what? No one is forcing you to, so just don’t read it. I write my posts to make myself happy in all honesty, not to impress anyone at all.


Okay, so while I was very young, as in below the age of 5, I thought that every woman absolutely had to marry a man when they became an adult, and that was that. Around this age, I had never had a crush or anything of the sort. I did, however, mutually like men and woman in general, as people. After this point is when I started thinking a little bit more about romance and all that – not to an extreme measure I mean, I was 5. But I do remember telling my friend at school when I was around 6 years old or so, that I was in love with her… I remember telling her something along the lines of “I love you, I mean I really really love you, not like a friend, I REEEEEEAAAALLY love you.” She responded by saying that she loved me too, and I was proper chuffed. I even remember being sort of jealous when she told me she liked this guy in our year later on. But, this was all between the ages of 5-8, so what did I know about love? I definitely thought that girl was amazing, but honestly, I think I just was more possessive over her as a best friend more than anything else. I thought me thinking she was great meant that one day I would want to marry her!

When I was younger, I’d say I was more of a tomboy than anything else. I loved to wear certain dresses, but I generally much preferred to wear a good ol’ baggy T-Shirt with some shorts and trainers. I have always been certain of my gender though. I am a girl and have always felt one – how feminine or masculine a female I feel I am is a different thing all together! I think I have always been a nice mixture of both feminine and masculine.

I moved school just a bit before I turned 8, so that was the end of that! At my new school I developed some serious crushes, for real. They were all for men, or more like boys at that age. Unless you include the Halifax man. Yeah, I was a weird 8 year old. I actually went through phases of liking A LOT of different guys during Primary school…

At my first Secondary school, I got my first maaaaaaaaaaaaajor crush on a boy, and he became my first boyfriend! I thought he was great!

Later on, I changed Secondary schools, and it was during my time at this secondary school that things got a bit more confusing. I pretty much had told my friends at this school that I was bisexual. I honestly didn’t really know if I actually was, but I did know that girls interested me, and that boys did too. Honestly, I was more sexually attracted to girls for the majority of my time in secondary school, although I had only ever had boyfriends or done anything even remotely sexual with a guy. I don’t know why this was… I guess I always felt more comfortable being with a guy. I think a lot of that is because I always knew I wanted to ultimately get married and have children with a man, so I felt like maybe I would be wasting my efforts or something if I explored relationships with girls. But again, I DEFINITELY found women FAR MORE attractive than men at this age.  In terms of my romantic feelings toward people, I could just as easily be interested or have feelings for a man as a woman.

After I had left school, my sexuality changed quite a bit. I definitely straightened out somewhat, and now I’m pretty much only sexually attracted to men! I just don’t really have much sexual interest in women in that way. Although, I do think I have the capability to develop feelings for both men and women in the same way. I still see a future getting married and having children with a man though..


This all probably sounds quite confusing, and that’s because, clearly, everyone changes over time. Everyone’s sexuality stuff, I personally believe, is a point on a very flexible, constantly moving and changing scale, rather than a set point on said scale. Or maybe everyone is different, and for me the scale is somewhat flexible whereas for others, it is definitely set.

Anyways, to summarise my sexuality history:

Romantic attraction: Men+Woman (/anything else???) (has always been this way, romantic attraction is based on personality alone for me, ie someone’s beliefs, morals, likes and dislikes etc)

Sexual attraction: Men -> Women (mostly) -> Men (mostly)

Who I see my future with: Men (has always been this way)

Gender I feel comfortable identifying with: FEMALE (100% has always been this way)

Masculinity/femininity: Feminine + Masculine

Overall, I have always been more interested in men. This all could change, but I honestly doubt it! I am 100% certain that I feel comfortable as a female, that I would preferably end up with a man, that I am for the most part sexually attracted to men, that I am a healthy mix of both feminine and masculine and that I could develop feelings for someone regardless of their sex or gender. I am perfectly happy with how I am in this sense. I am happily in a serious relationship with a man, and I’m super happy with how it is going! How I define myself: HUMAN.

Lush Cynthia Sylvia Stout Shampoo Review

Cynthia Sylvia Stout Shampoo (100g)

Rating: 2/5*

Cons:

This shampoo made my hair really, really knotty. My hair is very, very, VERY fine and is below shoulder length, so it gets tangled very easily as is! This shampoo definitely didn’t help with that problem in the slightest, and just made it far worse. If you’re chill with having extremely knotty, thin, breakable, unhealthy hair then sure, try this shampoo…

This shampoo made my hair feel like sh*t in general. Some of the horrible effects this shampoo gave my hair: Made my hair more static, made my hair even more knotty, made my hair feel less healthy, dried out my hair, made my hair more prone to breakage and damage… It got to the point where I just really didn’t want to use this shampoo anymore, and was quite glad when my partner did instead. I really had high hopes for this shampoo but honestly, it was a massive let down!

I had to use quite a bit of product for my hair to even be shampooed properly. Getting the right amount of product in my hair took a lot of trial and error.

This shampoo left my hair really, really flat and lifeless after use. I hated it so much!!!

Sometimes my hair would appear to have more volume – but not exactly in a good way. My hair would be flat at the roots and really static and horrid everywhere else!


Pros:

My partner LOVED this shampoo. He really enjoyed it. He’s a he, and has short, thick hair, so maybe this shampoo is more well suited to those sorts of traits? I don’t know, but I’m glad he enjoyed it all the same!

This shampoo did make my hair shinier, which is something I have been enjoying recently.

This shampoo did clean my hair very well, which is something I’m happy about.

I really liked the smell of this one. A very light, sweet, syruppy, natural lemon smell. It always left my partner’s hair smelling really lovely too!

A little 100g bottle of this is very affordable for a shampoo from Lush (£4.75!)

This is a vegan shampoo from Lush – just those things along make this shampoo worth a go in my opinion!

This shampoo is SUPPOSED to make your hair more voluminous and strong, and is supposed to be gentle. Although I didn’t personally find it to be any of those things really, maybe this product will do these things in someone else’s hair.


Overall Conclusion:

Overall, I’m not going to lie, I hated this shampoo. I absolutely hated it. It has made my hair more of a nightmare to work with than it usually is around this time of the year. My partner did love it however, so I would recommend trying this shampoo if you have short hair, thick hair or both!

This is a shampoo where it would be absolutely terrible to skip the conditioner with, however unprocessed and healthy your hair is.

I’m unfortunately going to have to rate this shampoo a 2/5* rating, and it is only getting that high a rating due to the fact that my partner really enjoyed it.

If you want to try a shampoo that really does improve one’s hair, I’d try either Seanik or Jumping Juniper Solid Shampoo Bars from Lush’s range!

Lush Tisty Tosty Bath Bomb Review

Hello everyone! I actually used up this bath bomb a couple of weeks ago, so this is a review that I’ve been meaning to write for a while now! I have been, am and will be extremely busy with my coursework and just general life stuff, but I just really needed to get this Tisty Tosty Bath Bomb review out now! I hope you enjoy it 🙂

This was a bath bomb that my beautiful, wonderful mummy bought me for my birthday last October, so I decided I’d use it up ASAP before it crumbled apart!


Tisty Tosty Bath Bomb:

Rating: 5/5*

Cons:

If you like a lot of colour in your bath, steer away from Tisty Tosty! Tisty Tosty is a white bath bomb, so the colour it leaves behind in your bath tub (if any) is extremely subtle. For some reason, I found my bath tub was left with a very subtle green hue to it, although this might have just been due to my lighting or something. It was very subtle either way though!

If you don’t like things floating around in your bath then again, this little guy might not be the one for you. 5 or so yellow rose buds will be released into your bath tub, and will just float around gently. You will need to take them out of the bath and throw them away before you take the plug out of the bath, to prevent them clogging up your drain or something! For me, this definitely wasn’t a big deal, but some people might find it to be an annoying additional step to taking a bath.

This was a pretty quick fizzer. I enjoyed that aspect of this bath bomb, but anyone who prefers a big show might feel quite let down by this aspect of Tisty Tosty.

The scent is quite strong when the bath bomb is in solid form but once it has fizzed away in the bath, the scent is extremely, extremely faint. The scent is also different in the water, and smells more like a subtle, sweet, fruity scent than a powdery scent.

After taking a bath using Tisty Tosty, I felt the need to rinse off in the shower afterwards. I’m not sure why, but I just didn’t feel fully “clean” just rinsing in the bath water that this bath bomb left behind.


Pros:

This is an adorable bath bomb! The only heart shaped bath bomb Lush do that is currently available, it is definitely a special little guy 🙂 Definitely worth trying in my opinion.

I found the rosebuds floating around to be very relaxing, personally. They just calmly floated around the bath tub to the rhythm of the chilled music I had playing whilst taking my bath.

This was an all round incredibly relaxing bath bomb to be honest. I could have stayed in that bath for hours! I think I DID stay in that bath for almost 2 hours… If you want a super chilled out, relaxing bath, this will be the perfect accompaniment to your bath. Absolutely lovely!

I received this as a gift from my lovely mother, and it made a fantastic gift! This is definitely worth purchasing to give to someone you care about – it definitely puts the message across, and in such a lovely way. Tisty Tosty would make an absolutely perfect gift!

I really enjoyed the scent. The scent of the bath bomb (before putting it in the bath tub) is a very powdery, sweet, floral, slightly fruity scent. It also has quite a clean and fresh scent. Honestly, the scent reminded me of the scent you’d expect from a dusting powder, talcum powder or from those powdery lollipops… You know the ones I mean! I guess the scent was also quite similar to the scent of turkish delight, but more sweet and less rosey. If you like powdery sorts of scents, give this bath bomb a try!

This bath bomb left the bath water somewhat moisturising. Not extremely so, but just a nice amount.


Overall Conclusion:

Overall, I think this was a lovely bath bomb, and any cons are really quite minor to me. I think this bath bomb is really underrated due to it leaving the bath with pretty much no colour or bath art whatsoever. I found it to be extremely relaxing though – the most relaxing bath I’ve had thus far in fact!

I’m going to be giving this bath bomb a 5/5* rating. Again, this may surprise some people but honestly, sometimes simplicity is best! I get very stressed, so how relaxing this bath bomb is suits me brilliantly.

Lush Jungle Solid Conditioner Review

This was a product I had wanted to try for the LONGEST time! It sounded amazing in theory – let’s see how it performed in reality!


Jungle Solid Conditioner:

Rating: 1/5*

Cons:

The scent of this solid conditioner is extremely pungent. It definitely isn’t a subtle scent, and is one that I think a lot of people won’t be into. The scent also smells almost perfumey, chemically and artificial when the product in sitting in your hair before being rinsed out. Definitely a bit of a turn off for me myself!

This conditioner is… well… I don’t know about my final opinion of this conditioner just yet, but I do know that it had a lot of negative traits. One of those traits being that while applying this conditioner to my hair, combing it through and while rinsing it out, I’d just  find my hair sort of… falling out… really easily. I’m not even kidding. I don’t know if it’s because the conditioner tugged at my hair and that my hair is very fragile or what it was. All I know is that I’d end up having lost quite a bit of hair after every shower where I had used Jungle Solid Conditioner! I’d just constantly find loads of strands of my hair on my hands and body throughout my shower… SO BAD!!!

This conditioner doesn’t do the best job at conditioning one’s hair. My hair would never feel fully conditioned after using this conditioner, and I’d have to turn to my R&B Hair Moisturiser for my hair to feel fully moisturised. Not a great one for dry hair!

The scent itself is somewhat of a masculine scent in my opinion. It smells very green and salty, very much like how you’d imagine a humid tropical jungle to smell! That might be your kinda thing, but it might not be!

A little does NOT go a long way with this conditioner – despite what anyone says!!! I have extremely fine hair so if the general idea is that a little bit goes a long way when it comes to solid conditioners, that should certainly be the case with my type of hair – right? Wrong. This conditioner ran out SO QUICKLY and even then, my hair never felt fully conditioned once it had dried – unless I had used my hair moisturiser!

This conditioner is kinda messy. Toward the end of my bar, it broke into loads of little pieces. The only way I managed to use those pieces was to smush them up in the palm of my hand to form a uniform paste, and then to apply that paste to my hair. I still lost some product down the drain though.


Pros:

I personally think the scent is super exciting – it makes me feel like I’m living in some tropical location using this uber natural scented, local conditioner. It smells really good to me, and the scent really brings adventurous thoughts to the forefront of my mind. I know it probably sounds bizarre that a scent could do this, but for me, it really does. It makes me just want to explore and live close to the tropical jungles and rain forests around the world… It is a perfect scent for those of you who are super adventurous at heart!

The conditioner is green, which makes me feel more like it is very natural. I really like the thought of using a natural conditioner in my hair – one that doesn’t contain silicon to create the illusion of well conditioned, healthy hair. I prefer my hair to be truly nourished! If you are interested in more natural products, perhaps give this conditioner a try.

I haven’t personally travelled with this conditioner, but I can tell it would be extremely travel friendly. You could just pop it in a sandwich bag and then straight into your backpack or suitcase, without worrying about any leakage, the quantity you are allowed to bring with you and without worrying about the hassle of re-bagging your conditioner when going through security at an airport. If you like to travel around, try this conditioner!

Although this product didn’t condition my hair THAT well, it definitely did condition my hair at least slightly. This conditioner definitely made my hair feel a little less dry.


Overall Conclusion:

Overall, I love the CONCEPT of this conditioner, but I really don’t like how it actually works in my hair – like, at all. I think it makes for a pretty terrible conditioner in fact. A really, really terrible conditioner (probably not as bad as Big Solid Conditioner though!) It has literally caused me to lose quite a bit of hair, and never conditoned my hair very nicely. The scent is also very artificial when applying the conditioner in the shower. I think it is an incredible shame because truly, the concept of this conditioner is amazing – a travel friendly, tropical and natural smelling conditioner, that inspires adventure in whoever uses it!

Unfortunately, I’m going to have to rate this conditioner a 1/5* rating. At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter how brilliant the concept of a product is. If it is going to cause you HAIR LOSS, it simply isn’t worth it!

If you think the idea of this conditioner sounds nice, I would recommend you try Sugar Daddy-O Solid Conditioner by Lush. It still smells delicious and is extremely travel friendly, but it also works really, really well and leaves your hair looking absolutely amazing!
