Lush R&B Hair Moisturiser Review

R&B Hair Moisturiser (100g:)

Rating: 5/5*

Cons:

This product will make your hair get greasy faster than it would do otherwise. I have really fine hair and also have a fringe, meaning this effect on me was really noticeable! I normally like to wash my hair daily as it is (or at least my fringe,) but when using this product my hair almost NEEDED to be washed daily.

A lot of people really hate the smell of R&B. To me it actually smells nice, but really, a LOT of people dislike its scent, so it’s definitely a product you should smell in store before purchasing.

The scent is really strong and clings to your hair. That means that if you happen to hate the scent of this product, even using the tiniest amount in your hair will cause you to smell of the stuff all day!

Although I personally do like the scent of R&B, just the fact that it is such a strong scent can make the product a little tedious to use. It’s like using the same perfume every single day for a REALLY long time! I mean, I’m not sure how noticeable the scent is to other people when it’s in my hair, but I personally can smell it very strongly throughout the day.

Using R&B correctly could be a struggle for some people. Everyone’s hair is different, so the amount you need to use in your hair wont be the same amount that somebody else needs in their hair. I personally used a really small amount at first, and kept adding more until I felt like there was enough product in my hair for it to have its full effect. After a while I learnt around how much product my hair needed. I also found it best to apply the hair moisturiser after washing and towel drying my hair. I’d begin at the tips, and work my way up to my roots, so that the least product would be on my roots and the most on my ends. I’d then brush my hair through, followed by using a hairdryer to dry my hair whilst running a brush through it. I’d brush one more time and voila! Learning how to use R&B to achieve the best effect for your hair might take some time!


Pros:

I personally love the scent of R&B, and really like the fact that the scent is strong and that it lingers in the hair (most of the time!) To me the scent is a very natural, sweet, buttery, herby floral scent. I REALLY like how it smells in fact, and so does my partner! I’m genuinely surprised by the amount of people that hate the way it smells.

Okay, so as I said before, my hair is SUPER fine. It’s also pretty long. R&B was a life saver for me when it comes to tangled hair. I could never imagine how easy it could be to comb my hair after towel drying it until I started using this product. It doesn’t matter whether your hair is dry, damp or completely wet, R&B makes it SO easy to comb your hair. Brushing my hair is a job that literally went from taking what seemed like 15 minutes to 15 seconds after using this product.

My hair has never felt so healthy and moisturised in my LIFE until using R&B.

R&B would also leave my hair feeling SUPER silky, smooth, soft and looking really shiny. It also helped my hair to look more bright and vibrant – it really helped my natural highlights to stand out! I always loved how my hair looked when I had used R&B.

This product would also help a lot with fighting static – I don’t remember hair static being a problem much at all during the time I used R&B, and it’s normally a pretty big problem for me and my fine hair!

My individual strands would look a lot thicker once I had applied this stuff, which is something I really enjoyed!

I’d find that my hair was stronger, healthier and would break a lot less when I had used R&B. The frequency of finding split ends reduced a LOT.

My 100g pot lasted me quite a long time. I asked my partner to run to Oxford Street after work to grab me a pot of the stuff on the 6th January 2017. I’m not 100% sure when I used it all up but I know it was very recently, so I’m going to go ahead and say that 100g pot lasted me around a year. Not bad!

The feel of the actual product by itself is really lovely. It feels super buttery and soothing.

R&B is a pale creamy yellow colour by itself – it even LOOKS buttery!

Despite what a lot of other people say, this product never made my hair feel greasy in a bad way. It would leave my hair feeling moisturised and healthy, and my hair would only begin to feel and look greasy if I didn’t wash it for over 24 hours. Even then, the greasiness was only really noticeable in my fringe so sometimes I’d just wash my fringe quickly in the morning – and tie my hair up if I was a bit paranoid about the rest of my hair looking greasy.

I didn’t have a conditioner to use in my hair for the longest time, so I relied on using R&B after washing my hair to keep it moisturised. It worked SO well, and a little really did go a long way. When I used it after having conditioned my hair, I’d need such a teeny bit to get the best effect from the product.


Overall Conclusion:

Overall, I absolutely loved this product and am really upset that it’s all gone now! I could hardly flaw it at all. In fact, I don’t really think I can really find a genuine flaw in the product personally.

I 100% recommend that everyone try a sample of this, or purchase a small pot of it. It isn’t recommended for my hair type but dayum, it worked wonders! I didn’t even think my hair was dry until I started using R&B and realised how healthy my hair could be!

Overall, I rate R&B a solid 5/5* rating.

Lush Tropical Jungle Body Lotion Review

Tropical Jungle Body Lotion:

Rating: 5/5*

Cons:

This lotion was a Kitchen Exclusive back in April of last year. I think they may have released the lotion in the Lush Kitchen earlier this year too, but I’m unsure. Either way, if this is a product you are interested in or a product that you have somehow got your hands on and happen to fall in love with, you’re going to find it very difficult to stock up on! It isn’t available in stores all year, and isn’t even a seasonal product!

Some people will hate the scent of this lotion. Think pine trees, think musky salt, think bitter under-ripe bananas. It is a scent that does catch in the throat quite a bit if you inhale it a little too much. If the smell of the great outdoors – the woodsy, foresty, jungly smell isn’t your sort of thing, I’d steer WELL away from this lotion! It has quite a heady, humid sort note to it which really enhances and brings out outdoorsy scents within this lotion.

This lotion is RUNNY. It is EXTREMELY thin. I have spilled bits of this lotion on multiple occasions – nothing tragic, but nonetheless it is quite irritating!

This lotion being so thin means that often you will find you need to apply a lot more of the stuff to actually feel moisturised for a decent amount of time.

This lotion can feel slightly tacky on the skin for some time after application. This doesn’t bother me much at all, but I can see how it could bother a lot of people. It is definitely a lotion where I have to wash my hands after application!

The scent being sort of musky and salty in nature does remind me a tiny bit of perspiration. It doesn’t smell bad, but it does have this humid saltiness to it.

This lotion can go down pretty fast. It has lasted me a good amount of time – a little under a year and 3 months in fact, but that is because it isn’t a lotion that I use daily. Each application would use up quite a bit of product.

The first ingredient on the ingredients list for this product is water. That’s never a good sign when it comes to lotions! It is somewhat of a filler ingredient, which is a shame because this lotion was pretty expensive.


 

Pros:

Okay, so I actually sort of fell in love with this lotion. I’m really upset that I used it up to be honest. If this comes out in the kitchen and you happen to see it, and it isn’t sold out, buy it. You might not love it at first, but trust me, it will grow on you! This lotion is truly experience enhancing. It is just the perfect lotion to use whenever you’re going to be outdoors and in the sunshine!

The scent of this lotion is something very special. It really does smell like a mixture between a being in a pine tree forest and a being in a tropical jungle. And I say being in, because the scents truly feel like you are there, in that forest, in that tropical jungle. I know it sounds strange, but the scent of this jungle is very adventurous and outdoorsy, and makes me feel more adventurous and outdoorsy when I use it! It smells absolutely gorgeous, I love it! There’s a definite sweetness to it that smells to me like bananas. I don’t know, I can see a lot of people hating the scent of this lotion and I really wasn’t sure of it at first – which is why it is so important to actually use up an entire product before making a judgement on it!

I hate that this lotion is thin, but I love how the lotion feels once applied. It makes me feel fresh and truly moisturised, and over time, once the lotion has sunk in, my skin is left feeling velvetty smooth and plump. This body lotion is definitely one that works – it makes your skin feel moisturised and healthy!

The scent is strong. This is a scent that 100% will cling to your skin all day, as well as on any clothes that your lotioned-up skin comes into contact with.

My skin, without fail, looks 100% better after having applied this lotion to it. This lotion somehow makes my skin appear slightly darker, much more healthy, more even in tone and texture and provides a gorgeous sheen to my skin too. This lotion was an absolute must for days when I wanted to venture outside with my legs on show!


 

Overall Conclusion:

Overall, I loved this lotion, and I’m pretty darn sad that I have used it up! I’m really hoping that there is a mainline lotion that has a similar affect – a scent that makes you feel all adventurous! I loved loved loved this lotion! Some times I’m still slightly unsure about what I think of the scent, but most of the time all I have for this lotion is pure love. I’m so glad that I randomly decided to add this lotion to my order when I went online to buy some shampoo bars last year. It completely surpassed my expectations! I do wish that water wasn’t the main ingredient for this lotion, but it isn’t a big problem for me. The effects of the lotion are more important, right?

Overall, I’m going to rate this a 5/5* rating, without a doubt! I’m not even a person that uses lotion religiously but wow, this lotion… I truly do hope Lush has some more amazing ones in its mainline!
