Lush Happy Happy Joy Joy Conditioning Hair Perfume

Happy Happy Joy Joy Conditioning Hair Perfume (100g)

Rating: 4/5*

Cons:

The scent of this conditioner is STRONG. EXTREMELY strong! If you don’t like the scent of flowers then seriously, give this one a miss, because it has an extremely strong floral scent to it.

This conditioner doesn’t go a long way. You need a decent amount of product to truly condition your hair. Not absolutely tons, but definitely not a small amount. This product wont last you very long!

I found this conditioner to make my roots a little greasy. I don’t actually apply conditioner to my roots, but after conditioning my ends, I do sort of spread the product throughout all of my hair. I also comb the conditioner through the entire length of my hair before rinsing it out. Once I used this product in the evening, and the next morning, I have to wash my fringe again before going to college. As I said, I didn’t even apply the conditioner directly to my fringe or roots – only to my ends! If you have a fringe or your hair gets oily quite fast at the roots, I might stay away from this one!

This is an extremely expensive product – the most expensive conditioner that Lush do. I’d advise you try a sample of this conditioner before purchasing it, as a little 100g bottle of it costs £9.95!


Pros:

I personally like the smell of this conditioner a lot. It smells really fresh and makes me feel happy. It reminds me of the outdoors, of nature and of the Summertime 🙂 If you like very natural, floral, outdoorsy scents, you’ll really like the smell of Happy Happy Joy Joy!

After rinsing the product out of the hair, a scent lingers – but not the exact same scent as the product smells in its container. The musky floral scent of the product is hardly present, and instead the scent is much more zesty and citrusy. I think it smells lovely in the hair!

This product did condition my hair very well (almost too well!) My hair felt almost perfectly conditioned after using Happy Happy Joy Joy in face, and I only needed the smallest amount of R&B Hair moisturiser to reach that perfect level. If you are in some SERIOUS need of hydration for your hair, try this conditioner! This finding seems odd to me, considering that most reviews that that this conditioner is extremely light. Perhaps it is because of my hair being extremely straight, very fine and very thin and all natural! Perhaps if you have hair similar to me, you will also find this conditioner to be extremely conditioning!

This conditioner is very natural and it really feels like you are genuinely feeding your hair when you use it. My hair certainly feels healthier after having used this conditioner!

The name… Okay, so it’s just a name, right? But Happy Happy Joy Joy is just such a happy, cute, uplifting name, how could you not love it?!


Overall Conclusion:

Overall, this is an absolutely lovely conditioner from Lush. It just smells so happy, outdoorsy and natural! It also actually works extremely well at conditioning the hair (at least for my hair!) I found this conditioner to actually be TOO conditioning for my fringe area, but only just not conditioning enough for my ends. Considering that I didn’t even actually apply the conditioner to my fringe area, I’m not quite sure how I would be able to find balance with this product! The scent is very strong before rinsing it out – possibly even almost TOO strong. But I do really like it!

Overall, I’m going to have to give this lovely conditioner a 4/5* rating. If it would just leave my fringe and root area a little less oily, I’d probably give it a higher rating!

I hope you enjoyed my review!

Lush Enzymion Moisturiser Review

Hello 🙂

Today is a review of Lush’s ‘Enzymion Moisturiser’.

This is a moisturiser that I previously had said that I would not be reviewing, due to it containing comedogenic ingredients. After discovering that the wonderful Aqua Marina contains a comedogenic ingredient, I rethought my perfectionism on this matter. Heck, even dead skin cells are comedogenic, something extremely natural to have on facial skin…

I figure that most products probably contain ingredients that are technically comedogenic, but perhaps sometimes it is the non-comedogenic ingredients included in these products that counteract any pore-clogging effects. I don’t know, I’m no expert. All I know is that a product that has been extremely beneficial for my skin in the past is apparently comedogenic, so clearly a product containing comedogenic ingredients does not mean it will make my skin break out with tons of acne or anything.

Now, let’s get on with this review! As stated in the past, I always make sure to completely use up the entire product, through using it properly, before reviewing it. I feel that my reviews are more accurate and useful this way. I state the size of the product where there are different size options and to end the review on a happier note, I always end with the pros!

Enjoy!


Enzymion Moisturiser

Rating: 3/5

Cons:

This moisturiser has quite a strong smell, which some people could definitely not have a fondness for. The scent catches in your throat slightly and is a very potent and acidic smelling fruity floral. I could definitely see people disliking this scent!

This moisturiser is very, very, very light. I definitely found myself using more of this moisturiser at a time than I did with Imperialis (if you would like to see the review for Imperialis, please scroll to the end of this blog post where you will find a few links to similar posts to this on my blog.) My skin type is sensitive combination skin, and I would return to my pot of Enzymion maybe 3 or 4 times before feeling that my face had really been moisturised properly. This could be due to the top ingredient being a lemon infusion – so mostly water.

This moisturiser does contain a few comedogenic ingredients, and therefore has quite a comedogenic (pore clogging, acne inducing) rating. This might be a concern for some, but in actuality this fact probably will not have any impact on your skin. This fact is still a little scary though!

Sometimes, the moisturiser would actually feel incredibly heavy on my skin, and almost dirty. This would be after using a serum on my face, but is definitely something to think about – I’d definitely advise getting a sample of this moisturiser before actually purchasing it, so that you can give it a trial run.

I did not find that this moisturiser particularly helped my oil production levels or my acne, which it is supposed to do really. In fact (and I am not saying that this is the fault of this moisturiser, and the least healthy parts of my skin are simply due to my picking habit,) my skin has been particularly spotty recently. Although I don’t think this is the fault of Enzymion, it certainly may have been a contributing factor to this problem. Like, recently my skin was definitely the worst I have ever seen it be in my life, but it is slightly better now.

This moisturiser will run out very quickly because of it being so thin. This can be a bit annoying!


Pros:

This being a light moisturiser could be seen as a pro. Imperialis was too heavy for me – so heavy in fact that just the smallest amount on my facial skin would feel like a bit too much if I’m honest with you. Enzymion however, I have never felt like it was too heavy UNLESS I had only just applied a serum onto my face beforehand. With this moisturiser, you can make sure your facial skin has exactly the amount of product it needs to feel how you would like it to feel. I guess you could call it a buildable moisturiser. I would prefer if the moisturiser was a tad bit heavier, but I rather it be a light moisturiser that is buildable than a moisturiser that is far too heavy for my face.

The acidic smell smells mostly like fruits to me. It is very, very pungent, but I think I quite like it. To me it smells fresh and pleasant.

I really like how this moisturiser makes my skin feel after applying enough of it to my face. It is left feeling dewy, fresh and plump.

The colour of this moisturiser is white and its texture is like a light cream. This combination is much lovelier to me than the colour and texture of Imperialis! It adds to the fresh feeling this moisturiser has.

This moisturiser is all natural, is cruelty free, vegan, handmade and is a product from Lush – an incredible company! It is definitely a product that is worth a try just for those reasons alone! I absolutely love Lush and the company’s products in general – they are just so fun to use and are each so different from each other.


Overall Conclusion:

Overall, I like this moisturiser. It isn’t perfect. It really does not sit well on top of serums, it is very light and the smell can become a bit much sometimes. My skin has also been absolutely terrible and although I don’t believe this moisturiser is the cause, it could very well be contributing to a few annoying blackheads. My skin is quite sensitive however, and I don’t see this moisturiser having a negative affect on most who would try it.

For me, this moisturiser is something that I think I like more than I dislike, it could just do with a few tweaks here and there.

Overall, I’m going to rate this moisturiser 3/5*. It is close to 4 stars, it is mainly the fact that my acne has been problematic recently that has got me slightly worried about this product. For the billionth time though, it is definitely worth a try and I would really recommend grabbing yourself a sample of it. I would say that it is a moisturiser that is best for oily/normal/combination skin, being more ideal for oily/combination skin types and most ideal for combination skin.

I hope you enjoyed my review today, have a nice evening.
