Lush From Dusk ‘Til Dawn Massage Bar Review

I bought this massage bar sometime last year – I think it was actually around this time last year to be honest! I only just managed to use it up – here is my review of it!


From Dusk ‘Til Dawn Massage Bar:

Rating: 5/5*

Cons:

This massage bar does smell very strong and very much so of oranges. If you do not like zesty, fruity citrus scents, this massage bar isn’t for you!

The scent of this massage bar was slightly artificial smelling to me. It smelled to me like orange Tango or orange squash or something like that! If you are looking for a more “real” orange scent, don’t try this one!

This massage bar takes AGES to use up! This could be a good thing, or a bad thing. I have this in the cons list for this product because it took me a year to get through, and I got a little bit bored always using the same massage bar! If you like your Lush products to not last TOO long, this one isn’t for you!

I’m not 100% sure that I like the shape of this product… It looks a little… Strange… It is a beige-yellow cone, with a golden tip.

When melted, this bar could get quite greasy. I know it is made of oils, but I found it a little bit TOO oily for my liking.


Pros:

I think this massage bar smelled absolutely amazing! To me, it smelled almost identical to the Celebrate Body Lotion! A very bright and orangey scent. The scent was also strong, which meant that if I left the bar on my bedside table, my whole room would smell absolutely lovely! It makes a brilliant air freshener 😉

I found the scent to be very uplifting, and was a great product to use when I wanted a little nudge to get me up and being productive!

I think the scent of this massage bar works pretty much all year-round. It’s zesty scent works especially well in the Summer time!

I found this massage bar to also make a lovely lotion – especially for legs during the Summer! It gave my legs the most gorgeous sun-reflecting sheen, whilst keeping my skin nourished and smelling divine. Again, definitely one for the Summer!

This product lasts forever. I know I also made this a con, but you definitely get your money’s worth with this massage bar. You won’t need to buy a replacement for around a year!

My partner would massage me with this bar very often, and when melted on my back, it would feel very luxurious! It always left my skin feeling so soft and smooth 🙂

I found the shape of the bar to be good for massages too, as the more pointy end could be used to really put pressure onto any achy knots. If you have a partner that is willing to give you massages, and you have really achy areas in your back, give this bar a go!


Overall Conclusion:

Overall, this was a lovely massage bar. I have hardly any issues with it at all! I think it smelled divine, and was absolutely perfect in the Summer! It made back massages feel even better too!

I’m going to rate this massage bar a 5/5* rating! It really was a lovely product – it was excellent value for money, made massages feel absolutely amazing and it was lovely during the Summer on my legs!

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 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!
