Lush Rehab Shampoo Review

Rehab Shampoo (100g):

Rating: 5/5*

Cons:

I find Lush liquid shampoos to make my hair a little bit tangled. It isn’t a huge issue, but it is definitely something I did notice occur with this particular shampoo.

The scent is very strong! To me it smells like sweet fruit, lavender, mint and tea tree. Mostly mint and tea tree to me, although it actually does not contain any tea tree whatsoever! If you don’t like those sorts of scents, I’d try a different Lush shampoo.

It was very difficult to know how much of this product I would need to use at a time. This shampoo is somehow super inconsistent! Sometimes I’d only need the tiniest amount to lather up my entire head of hair, and other times I’d have to add additional shampoo to my hair 3 or 4 times before being satisfied with the lather.

I don’t fully like the name of this product. Rehab is a word with many negative associations – things I don’t particularly want to pop into my mind whenever I go to wash my hair! I haven’t even be to rehab, but I’m sure this name would be even more disturbing for anyone that has!

Rehab is a very simple shampoo – some people only love Lush for the colourful, creative, innovative, unusual looking products! If you just find simple products to be boring, I’d try a shampoo bar instead!


Pros:

I personally love the scent of this shampoo. It was so unexpected, because most of the ingredients are fruit juices. It really does smell like mint, tea tree and a hint of lavender. It is just the most clarifying, clean smell and I absolutely love it! It also has a sweetness to it, that reminds me of the scent of hard boiled minty sweets.

I think the scent of this product does wonders for your mind too. The clarity of the scent just makes you feel refreshed, de-stressed, clear and ready to start the day with a fresh mind. If you are a person that experiences negative moods / negative ways of thinking frequently, I’d highly recommend you try this shampoo!

Again, for a friend who experiences negative moods often, this would make a really thoughful gift to them! The name might be a tad offensive, but if you just explain to them that the purpose you thought they would like the product is how clarifying and uplifting the scent is, I’m sure they’d be very appreciative!

Okay, so the name is a little odd. BUT, it does make my mind instantly start playing Amy Winehouse’s ‘Rehab’ in my mind – which isn’t such a bad thing!

The consistency of this shampoo is really lovely, as is the colour of it! It is just a super pale, transparent cream colour. Really simple and nice 🙂

I found this shampoo to be quite softening on my hair, and found that it generally lathered up quite well.

This shampoo cleans hair very well.

I found Rehab to have a slightly thickening effect on my hair!

My hair has seemed stronger recently than it usually does. I have extremely fine blonde hair, and usually it feels quite weak. I definitely think Rehab has helped with the strength of my hair!


Overall Conclusion:

Overall, I think this was a really nice shampoo. It was pretty basic, but felt somewhat like a staple product – everyone could do with a bottle of Rehab in their shower!

Honestly, I didn’t notice any massive change when using this shampoo. My hair does seem thicker and healthier than it used to, but I still lose a lot of hair whilst in the shower, my hair still gets greasy quickly etc. I think that I do overall like this shampoo – it just isn’t absolutely perfect I suppose!

Overall, I’m going to rate Rehab a 4 or a 5 star rating. It is difficult to pick between the two… I’m rating Rehab a 5/5* rating. I was going to give it a 4* rating but honestly, my hair has just been in much better shape recently, which will at least be partially due to Rehab. I’ve hardly been noticing any split ends in my hair and my hair has been both thicker and stronger.

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 Bohemian Soap Review

Hey guys! So I went to a Lush store in Berlin while I was visiting. I just saw the store and couldn’t really resist taking a quick peek. Anyway, I was too shy to ask for any samples but luckily, when I got to the till, the cashier asked if I would like a sample of anything. I had been holding up all the soaps for my partner to smell just prior, and he really liked Bohemian (he loves lemons :D) So I asked for a Bohemian sample!

We have just finished up our piece of soap, I hope you enjoy this review!


Bohemian Soap (100g):

Rating: 4/5*

Cons:

If you want to get this soap then you better like lemons a whole lot. If you don’t, you will absolutely hate this soap. Think freshly squeezed lemons!

After using this soap, my hands would feel extremely cleansed, possibly almost to a fault. I thought it was nice that it was so cleansing, but some people might find that aspect of it to be “harsh”.


Pros:

I thought this soap was pretty amazing. The scent of this soap is the closest to freshly squeezed lemon juice that I have ever smelled in a product in my life (other than freshly squeezed lemons themselves…) I’m not exaggerating. This soap smells exactly the same. I think it smells incredible!

This soap is super cleansing. It is nice to feel your hands are truly clean after you wash them!

The lather produced from this soap is surprisingly creamy. This soap lathers up so easily, and the lather is quite moisturising!


Overall Conclusion:

I know my review for this soap is incredibly short. I just can’t think of much to say about this soap. I found writing my last review on the “Dirty Springwash Shower Gel” very difficult too.

This soap is really nice. Basically, if you like lemons, you’ll really like this soap. Not a sweet, artificial scent of lemons. What I mean is if you like REAL, freshly squeezed lemon juice, you’ll love this product.

It is definitely uplifting, lemony… has a sour scent to it… It is just super lemony! The only un-lemony thing about this product is that the lather is so creamy. You’d think that a lemon soap’s lather would be more bubbly and…soapy? Rather than creamy and moisturising.

I’m going to give this soap a 4/5*. My only fault with this soap is that the scent is very sour, like legit lemon juice. I wasn’t the biggest fan of using such a strongly sour lemon scented soap every single time I washed my hands – it was just a bit too much for me! Other than that, this soap was really lovely to use and I’d recommend more people give this often overlooked soap a go!

Lush Over And Over Bath Bomb Review

Over And Over Bath Bomb:

Rating: 4/5

Cons:

This bath bomb leaves a heavy residue on the surface of the bath water, which clings to skin somewhat and 100% clings to the sides of the bath. I had to use a household cleaner to cut through the oils and wash off this residue! If that sounds like a hassle to you, I’d advise against trying this bath bomb!

This is a very limited item. I got it from Lush Oxford Street and it had just been made in the kitchen at the time. If you happen to get your hands on this bath bomb and absolutely love it, be warned – there’s a fair chance you won’t get to try it again!

The finished result of this bath bomb was underwhelming. Because of how exclusive it is, I had hoped it would provide a more exciting display or a more nourishing bath or something special! It was very simple. Some people might like that, others may not so much.

This bath bomb is super citrussy. Now, I like citrus scents, but I know some of you won’t. Steer away if you are one of those people!

My bath bomb developed a crack in it after not having it for too long, so they are very delicate. I had never even dropped it!

This bath bomb is a super, super, super slow fizzer. I personally prefer fast fizzers because I like to watch the entire display from the bath bomb before getting in myself, and I’m quite an impatient person! I know some people do prefer the slow fizzers, but for those that don’t, you’ve been warned!

The scent changes once it is in the bath. Initially, it smelled strongly of lemons to me, but once in the bath it smells more like orange flavoured lollipops – a super sweet orangey scent.

Again, you’d expect this bath bomb to be super moisturising but somehow it just isn’t really! I mean it is, but not as much as say Butterbear.

The scent that this bath bomb produces doesn’t cling at all, so don’t expect it to!


Pros:

The bath bomb being dipped in cocoa butter or whatever butter it is does make it interesting. The novelty of it is definitely fun and exciting. It’s nice to try something very new and different! Worth a try at least once I reckon.

The colours are so vibrant and pigmented. This bath bomb creates a display of bright orange, pink and yellow in the bath. It leaves your bath looking a bit like a sunset! Very pretty and warming colours.

I personally think this bath bomb smells absolutely gorgeous. After I had bought it, I left it in its paper bag on our coffee table for a couple of weeks before using it. Those entire 2 weeks, my room smelt absolutely amazingly of zesty lemon! It is by far the strongest scented Lush product I have purchased so far (in terms of how it smells before use.) After putting it in the bath, the scent develops into a very sweet orange smell, which is also lovely.

If you can get your hands on one of these, the fact that it is so exclusive makes it quite fun and exciting to use. It really does make your bath feel that much special!


Overall Conclusion:

Overall, this was a fun bath bomb to use, and I am very glad I gave it a good go. I think the colours and scent were absolutely wonderful but honestly, other than that…? It just didn’t really DO that much for me. It wasn’t very moisturising when I really was expecting it to be, considering it is dipped in I think cocoa butter?

It also fizzed away incredibly slowly. Like, the display lasted anywhere between 5 and 15 minutes to finish… Definitely a big no-no for me! It was a very pretty display but honestly, after a good few minutes, I just want to get in the damn bath (unless the display is incredibly beautiful – I could watch Intergalactic fizzing for a loooooooong time!)

I’m going to rate this bath bomb a… and I hate to say it for the billionth time… but it has to be another 4/5*! I know, I know, how predictable of me. I don’t know why but every Lush product has just been a 4/5* for me recently!

I intend to use a bath bomb tonight – really need a good bath to help me relax a little… Let’s hope that one is a 5/5!

Lush Karma Komba Shampoo Bar Review

Karma Komba Shampoo Bar

Rating: 4/5

Cons:

The scent of this shampoo bar is quite heady and heavy, and I could imagine it making some people not feel great. If strong incensey scents don’t agree with you, don’t try this shampoo bar!

This shampoo bar runs out very quickly and sticks to its container very easily. This means that you get less uses out of this shampoo bar than a lot of the others that Lush make. I believe this is because this shampoo bar is quite soft.

It’s green! The residue this bar leaves behind could definitely be mistaken for mould in some cases, and it is a bit of an odd colour for a cleansing beauty product!

This bar has a flower stuck in it, and when the shampoo bar runs out, this flower will just fall down the plug hole… I’m not too sure that this is good for drains… I feel like it might help clog them up!

The flower in the shampoo bar is sort of, well, dead.

I found this shampoo bar to be slightly more difficult to lather up than others from Lush that I have tried.

I don’t know why, but the scent reminds me a bit of school… and exams… I think it’s because I first started using this shampoo bar when I began sitting my exams in May this year. Either way, that was definitely a con for me!


Pros:

I think the colour is generally quite nice. It is unusual, but it being green makes it appear more herbal, healthy and natural. I think the colour is quite fun for the most part!

The smell is definitely interesting – an exotic, zesty, incensey sort of a scent. It sort of smells… mystical, alluring… I don’t know. It’s really nice though, even if it is a little heavy!

This shampoo bar lathers up quite nicely, even if it does take longer than other shampoo bars to do so. It is more of a creamy lather, which I think is why it takes a bit longer to lather up. The lather definitely feels healthier for the hair than, well, possibly every other shampoo I have used from Lush come to think of it. If you are looking for a softer, gentler, conditioning shampoo, I’d give this one a try for sure!

A product from Lush that is vegan, cruelty free, all natural and handmade – give it a go!

The flower, although dead, is still a cute little addition to the shampoo bar.

It cleaned my hair very well.



Overall Conclusion:

Overall, this is a nice shampoo bar. It is very unique, and I could see it working really well for some people.

Overall, I give this shampoo bar a rating of 4/5* rating. I know it seems like I give everything that rating recently, but it’s just my honest opinion of these products! I guess I just generally think that most Lush products are very, very good, but not perfect. Either way, I love trying every single one of them so much!

I actually used up a bath bomb before this shampoo bar, but the photos of it are on my phone which is why I decided to do this Karma Komba review first. That review will be up very shortly though!

Lush Sakura Bath Bomb Review.

Hey guys! I hope you enjoy this review!


Sakura Bath Bomb Review:

Rating: 4/5*

Cons:

This bath bomb doesn’t make a show at all in your bath. If you are looking for something that will leave your bath looking colourful, or different in any significant way, this one isn’t really for you. It is very plain!

This bath bomb is not moisturising very much at all. In fact, this bath bomb didn’t really do much for my skin whatsoever.

Because the bath bomb doesn’t do much, after you’ve finished with your bath, the water will probably be a murkey greyish colour from all the suds that result bathing. This could be much more pleasant if the bath bomb had some colour to it!


Pros:

Guys… the smell of this bath bomb is flipping incredible… The smell lingers, mainly in hair. I rinsed my hair in the bath after washing it, and oh my… My hair today still smells like fresh clean laundry, floral and like mimosa. This is after having used the bath bomb a full day ago. IT SMELLS SO GOOD!!! If you want a bath bomb that is going to linger in your hair and make you smell divine for absolutely ages, this is the ONE! The smell is completely inoffensive and is the sort of smell that everyone and anyone would like, because it just smells clean and fresh really.

The smell the bath bomb produces in the bath is much more floral than how it initially smells and than how it smells when it lingers in your hair. It smells so good!

The concept is lovely – a simple, delicate, feminine, fresh and pretty bath bomb 🙂

Visually, the bath bomb looks lovely. It is white with blue and pink speckles, and has some large blue-green coloured salt on the top of it.

This is a vegan product from Lush!

I literally can’t stop smelling my hair guys…

This was a gift from my mother for my birthday, and it really is a lovely bath bomb. I’m so glad to have been able to try it.

Although you can’t feel much of an effect from the bath bomb, it is definitely somewhat moisturising because you can see the bath bomb’s ingredients floating on top of the bath water when it is done fizzing, and the water does definitely feel more silky and moisturising than usual bath water. My skin also felt slightly moisturised after I had finished my bath.

The bath water was a really pretty blue colour before I got in. I’m not sure if this was anything to do with the bath bomb, because the colour seemed to disappear once I was in the bath, so I think it was more of a trick of the eye. Either way, it was pretty!


Overall conclusion:

Overall, I loved this bath bomb. Sure, it wasn’t that exciting, and it really didn’t do all that much for my skin. The smell is to die for though, and the bath bomb itself was really pretty. The entire concept of this bath bomb is really nice.

I rate this bath bomb a 4/5*, although it is really close to a 5* rating! This bath bomb is absolutely ideal to use when you just want to smell incredibly fresh all day.
