Here is a review of Lush’s Brazilliant Shampoo bar. I hope you enjoy!

Brazilliant Shampoo Bar:
This shampoo bar does break into little pieces once it begins to get thin! I HATE that this happens to Lush’s shampoo bars – it’s such a pain to use little tiny pieces of shampoo bar, and I just can’t waste them and throw them in the bin! Using them tiny pieces of shampoo bar is a super time consuming process.
This shampoo bar does stick to whatever you leave it to dry on – although not massively. Regardless, it’s still an aspect of this product that I don’t enjoy very much!
I personally found the scent of Brazilliant to be a little artificial smelling. I’m not sure why this is. To me it smelled similar to a chemical-filled orange flavoured squash or something. Not terrible smelling, but not as good as it potentially could have been!
I didn’t notice any improvements to the condition of my hair while using Brazilliant.
Now, I bought this shampoo bar for me and my partner to take with us for when we travelled to Mallorca! So, whenever I smell Brazilliant, the scent instantly makes me think of Summer and our time in Mallorca, which certainly isn’t a bad thing!
I think the overall scent of Brazilliant is quite fresh, uplifting and Summery. I’d definitely recommend trying our Brazilliant during the warmer half of the year!
This shampoo bar always left my hair feeling super clean, soft and not overly dried-out – even when not using a hair moisturiser of any kind afterwards. It didn’t leave my hair actually feeling moisturised, it just left it feeling fairly nice 🙂
Although Brazilliant does begin to break into pieces once it becomes really thin, it held together far better than I expected it to. I think for some reason I was under the impression that Brazilliant was a soft shampoo bar when I first purchased it, and that it would break into pieces really quickly. In actuality, it held together far better than most of the other shampoo bars I have tried from Lush!
Okay, this is a big pro that I only just remembered about this shampoo bar. IT LEAVES A SCENT IN YOUR HAIR! I’m not even kidding, this is the FIRST shampoo bar from Lush (I believe) that I have used that has actually left a scent in my hair after usage. The scent is really faint, but it is definitely there! It’s also a nice neutral scent – not many people are off-put by the scent of oranges, right?
The colour of Brazilliant is absolutely phenomenal. It is the brightest, happiest, opaquest orange you’ve ever seen! I absolutely love it, and again, it is super appropriate to have in the bathroom during the Summertime for this reason!
Brazilliant lathers up really beautifully, and lasts a very long time (around 3 months for me and my partner!)
Even the name of Brazilliant is really summery! This is like the ultimate happy Summer shampoo IMO 😉
Overall, I really enjoyed this shampoo bar – especially the concept of it 🙂 It wasn’t absolutely amazing though – Brazilliant didn’t help the condition of my hair out at all really, and I still got loads of split ends while using it! I definitely recommend using it during the Summer though, alongside a good moisturising product to keep your hair hydrated 🙂
Overall, I’m going to rate Brazilliant a 4/5* rating. It worked really well as a shampoo, despite its novel format, and is a really lovely product!
