Solid Shampoo Heaven

Solid Shampoo BarsI am that girl… the one who buys every new Solid Shampoo Bar from LUSH Cosmetics. These are the perfect travel companion, last forever (I do not know how I am going to use all of these), and lather like no other. Plus – they smell heavenly… although, I am not a big fan of the campfire one, Soak and Float. The new collection is lovely and unexpected with hints of citrus, jasmine, rose, and even a mimic of the famous Honey I Washed The Kids scent. Continue reading for an in-depth look into the world of eco-friendly shampoo:

  • Brazilliant (bottom bar) – I love this vibrant, tangerine shade! It smells even better, hints of orange with sweet ylang ylang. Do you ever wonder what ylang ylang even is? It is a tree commonly found in the Philippines known for its perfume aroma. Brazilliant works best with thick and curly hair types. If this shampoo does not remind you of summer days, I do not know what will!
  • Jason and The Argan Oil (next bar) – Oh my LANTA… this bar is a replica of the Rose Jam Bubbleroon. With hints of rose and lemon, Jason and The Argan Oil will leave your locks shiny and tamed! In fact, the argan oil creates a natural glycerin base, which lavishly moisturizes. This bar was completely sold out online in the first few weeks of its debut – I can see why!
  • Honey I Washed My Hair (next bar) – Heaven in the shower! This sweet, fresh honey scent is phenomenal and makes you crave a warm cup of tea – or should I say a double-double from Tim Hortons? A perfect formula to soften and volumize hair.
  • Lullaby (next bar) – Do you know why this Shampoo Bar is called Lullaby? It is stuffed with lavender! This formula is just the right fit for sensitive scalp and locks.. I suggest using this at night for a head filled with sweet dreams.
  •  Copperhead (next bar) – Unlike the others, this bar has a unique stamp and is covered with henna beads to up the shine! My mom is super excited for this one since her fading brown hair can use an extra boost! Mild and moisturizing, this bar can take on any hair type!
  • Montalbano (top bar) – Do not let the look-a-like of Godiva Shampoo Bar fool you! This scent is packed with citrus tones and olive goodness (kind of reminds me of the Italian country side). For anyone who loves the fresh lemon Kitchen scent, this is for you! A pick me up for dull hair that can use some TLC!

Name the Bath Bomb – Twilight Review

IMG_7211

I adore ‘Name the Bath Bomb’ competition from LUSH Australia on Facebook. It requires participation and brand knowledge. This allows a company to easily identify their ‘brand ambassadors.’ Can y’all guess the four bath bombs in the image above? I recognize two right away! Having a ‘Name the Bath Bomb’ blog post would be awesome!

Twilight Bath Bomb:

  • Lavender is the primary ingredient in Twilight. The properties of this flower are quite soothing and relaxing. I enjoy the calm smell and peace it brings to my mind. Twilight is a bath bomb to use before bed time.
  • Stars, planet, and moons surround the outer soft pink shell of Twilight. Blue illuminates inside the bath bomb while fizzing out in the tub.
  • There are not many fresh, natural ingredients in this product. Unfortunately, LUSH bath bombs need to have safe synthetics in order to create the ‘bomb explosion.’

Enchanted Eye Cream

Another LUSH review coming at you…! Of course, I wanted to go along with the LUSH facial cleanser campaign for LUSH USA. I wanted to review the Enchanted Eye Cream from LUSH. Here is a picture of my lovely bottle:

LIGHT: This eye cream is super light. It almost feels like you are putting NOTHING at all on your skin! I use ti under my eyes and on my eye lids! It feels cooling and very refreshing.

SMELL: Surprisingly, this LUSH product really does not have any distinct smell. At least when I use it I cannot smell anything strong! LUSH says that the product is a mixture of lavender and honey!

EFFECTS: I have not noticed any different effects on my eyes. I am not positive what the product is doing for me. When I bought it, the sales lady told me it was for dark circles but LUSH says it is for tightening up your skin near your eyes! Maybe it i tightening up my skin…. but I am not sure. Also, this is one of the first ever eye creams I have used!

FRESH INGREDIENTS: The fresh ingredients in this airy cream are cold pressed jojoba oil, lavender honey water, cold pressed almond oil and much much more! This is not a Vegan product from LUSH.

Overall, I would recommend this to anyone who wants a light cream that is good for all skin types! Like I said above, I am not sure what this product is doing for me but I have been putting it on a few times a week since last Fall. Have you tried any eye creams that do something for you?!

 

In The Nude Bath Trio

With the start of the dry and cold winter air, I decided to celebrate the beginning of this season with a special bath trio! Recently I purchased the Retro, In The Nude bath melt because according to LUSH, it is used “for dry, sore or irritated skin.” I have an obsession with bath melts and thought that this one would be very beneficial for the winter months.

Here is the link to In The Nude: http://www.lushusa.com/In-The-Nude/02160,en_US,pd.html#q=In%2520The%2520Nude&start=1

Besides In The Nude, the trio was:

  1.  In The Nude bath melt
  2. Lavender bath confetti
  3. Tulip bubble stick

I purchased the lavender confetti at a store in Rhinebeck, NY called Merriweathers. If you are not from the NY area, I am sure that you would not have a problem at all finding confetti online.

The other product I used in the bath was the Tulip bubble bar on a stick from the LUSH Easter collection. LUSH is not selling this product anymore but they have the Magic Wand bubble bar stick in their Christmas collection, which I am sure is the same. For this product, you put it under the faucet and then all of the bubbles start to form as the tub fills up.

I really enjoyed this bath trio. The water was extra hydrating and soothing from the In The Nude bath melt. The Tulip bubble stick also added all of the bubbles and added the smell one of my favorite LUH products, Yuzu and Cocoa bubble bar. Finally, the bath confetti added a bit of fun and made the tub look pretty.
