Lush Trichomania Solid Shampoo Review

Trichomania Solid Shampoo (100g):

IMG_4007 (2)

Rating: 5/5*

Cons:

This shampoo bar can be a little bit messy. It is a solid product, and you buy it “naked.” This means that it can leave behind residue wherever you set it down after washing your hair. It also means that this bar changed shape and texture over the course of its life, due to absorbing moisture. This solid shampoo is particularly soft to start with, so it becomes sticky and leaves behind  residue/changes shape/texture even more so than other solid products that Lush do. If you just aren’t a fan of the concept of Lush’s solid products in general, this one is no different – so steer clear!

This shampoo smelled like nuts to me, almost like peanut butter actually. It smelled closer to how I’d imagine almond butter would smell though – peanut butter’s sweeter cousin. It was a nice smell to me at least, but some people might really hate it!

This product seems to run out pretty quickly.

I find this shampoo to be more moisturising than most, meaning that my hair would get greasier quicker than usual whilst using it. I had to wash my fringe daily whilst using this shampoo because if I left more than a day between washing it, it would look pretty damn greasy!

This is an extremely simple looking product. It just looks like a chunk of cream coloured soap. If you are after an exciting looking product than maybe this one isn’t for you.


Pros:

This shampoo made my hair SO soft. Like, the softest a Lush shampoo has ever made my hair, without doubt. EXTREMELY soft!

This shampoo moisturised my hair. I have had so much less static since switching from Cythia Sylvia Stout to Trichomania, and I am SO GLAD for it! My hair feels really lovely after using this shampoo.

Even if my fringe (and sometimes my roots) would get greasier quicker than usual whilst using this shampoo, the rest of my hair wouldn’t. This shampoo was almost like a miniature treatment for my hair – it really nourished it and kept it looking and feeling so much healthier than usual!

I thought the smell was pretty nice! I love nutty smells 🙂

This is obviously a solid product, which makes it super travel-friendly 🙂

This shampoo lathered up SO WELL! It produced a lather extremely quickly whenever I went to use it, and the lather itself would be frothy and extremely creamy.

This shampoo always cleaned my hair so well!


Overall Conclusion:

Overall, I honestly loved this shampoo guys. It is so incredibly underrated – why is it so underrated?!? I honestly wouldn’t have tried this shampoo out for the longest time had I not been randomly sent some as a sample with one of my Lush samples. I think because the Solid Shampoo Bars are so popular, the Solid Shampoos just get given far less attention. This shampoo is a real game changer though.

My hair is very fine, quite long (below shoulder length,) blonde, thin and straight. It is also all natural and is completely unprocessed. My hair gets greasy pretty quickly but at the same time, the majority of my hair (anything that isn’t either my fringe or my roots) is pretty dry and lacking in moisture. I find fine, thin, straight hair is not only more prone to oiliness due to how easily oils can spread around the hair, but that is also more prone to dryness due to how difficult it is for this hair type to retain moisture. Basically, this sort of hair is the equivalent of combination skin – both dry and oily at the same time 😀

I’m going to have to give this product a 5/5* rating. It was pretty amazing, and I’m genuinely sad that I used up my piece. Usually I’m actually happy when I use up a product, because it means I get to write a review on it and that I get to try something new instead. I really miss it though!

I would HIGHLY recommend trying this shampoo out. TRUST me! It is absolutely wonderful!

Lush Love You Mum Soap Review

Hello everyone! 🙂 So, this soap was released for Mother’s day this year, and I couldn’t help but grab myself one – it looked really nice! I hope you enjoy this review 🙂


Love You Mum Soap (100g)

Rating: 4/5*

Cons:

This soap is very exclusive, and I have only seen it released for Mother’s day this year. If you do happen to fine it online or in the Lush Kitchen, be warned! If it turns out that you LOVE it, you might have a hard time getting your hands on it in the future!

This soap isn’t moisturising, and I actually found it slightly drying on my hands if I’m honest – only very, very slightly though!

Some people say this soap smells like moth balls? If you’re afraid of that then you’d better not try this soap!


Pros:

I thought this soap was lovely. The colours on it are absolutely gorgeous – a design that consists of a beautiful blue colour and a lovely ruby red. Such a beautiful soap! Google it to see what I mean 😉

I absolutely love the scent. To me, it is a fresh, soapy, fruity floral… sort of… It smells to me a lot like cherries, almonds, fresh linen, flowers and soap, all mixed together haha! It smells really good, I’d 100% recommend it for its scent personally!

It works really well, and runs out in a nice way if that makes sense. It does break up into smaller pieces eventually, but only a few and they are really easy to mush up into your hands and use up. It’s a nice and easy soap! 🙂

This soap lathers up really well!

This soap is from Lush, is vegan, cruelty free, handmade… Worth a try!


Overall conclusion:

I loved this soap. It wasn’t perfect – but it was really nice. I’d rate this soap a 4/5* (a rating I seem to be giving out a lot recently…,) and the only reason it gets 4 stars rather than 5 is the fact that it isn’t very moisturing.

Highly recommend!
