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 Breath Of Fresh Air Toner Water Review

Breath Of Fresh Air Toner Water (100g):

Rating: 4/5*

Cons:

I wasn’t the MOST keen on this toner water if I’m honest with you! The second ingredient in this toner is Fresh Sea Water, which contains aound 1/30th of salt. That may not seem like much, especially considering that Fresh Sea Water isn’t even the first ingredient in this toner water, however it is something I noticed with when using this product. I have very sensitive skin in general, because I have acne and also have an annoying picking habit, which made using this toner actually a little painful. Using this toner would cause a slight burning sensation on my face – not nice! If you have sensitive skin, acne or often have open wounds on your face, this is NOT the toner for you! It will hurt!

I’ve tried all of Lush’s toners before trying this one, and this is the toner that left my face with the least clean of a feeling. My face, by no means, would feel dirty after using this toner. It would just not feel fully fresh I suppose!


Pros:

This toner made an absolutely fantastic cleanser (both by itself and used after cleansing or after rinsing off a face mask, to get rid of excess residue!) This is by far Lush’s best toner for getting rid of any excess dirt, makeup or residue of any sort from the face! It is extremely clarifying and no matter how thoroughly I would cleanse beforehand, a cotton round with Breath Of Fresh Air toner applied to it would always remove extra dirt from my face!

This toner lasted me a really good long time, was very affordable and has a long time before its expiry date. My toner water was made on the 11/04 this year, and I just finished it up today on the 14/07 – so a 100g bottle of the stuff lasted me just over 3 months! I use this toner extremely regularly – twice a day, and use plenty each time! The expiry date for my bottle is 11/06/18, so you have 1 year and 2 months to use up this toner (more than enough time!)

I really like the scent of this toner. To me it smells fresh, like a beach holiday all contained in a bottle. It really does smell wonderful!

Breath Of Fresh Air does its job really well as a toner. My skin would be cleaner, my pores would appear smaller, my skin would feel less tight and my skin would appear more plump and youthful after using this toner. It really does do its job well, considering the product is mostly made from water!

Although I found the salt in the product to be irritating, salt is known to be anti-bacterial, which would actually be beneficial for spots or wounds. So, although the toner may burn a bit to use, it isn’t actually harmful towards skin problems at all.


Overall Conclusion:

Overall, I think this toner was okay. I really like the concept of it – it smells identical to the Sea Monster Fun to me – a scent that always reminds me of being on a seaside holiday somewhere warm. It also cleanses really well and overall, does its job well. It did sting my face though, and it didn’t make my skin “feel” super clean – I could definitely feel product left behind on my skin after using the toner. Also, although I know this toner was technically good for my acne, I haven’t noticed my acne being significantly better recently. In fact, very recently my acne has actually been pretty bad. I do think this toner helps, just not THAT significantly!

Overall, I’m going to rate this toner 4/5* rating. It is a decent toner and works really, really well! Incredibly so! I just hate the feeling of having product on my face after having used it.

I have officially now tried all of Lush’s currently available toners! As of 14/07/17, Eau Roma Water is my official favourite, and I’ll be sure to pick up a big bottle of the stuff once I have the money to do so, as that works out as being best value for money!
