Retro Blindness – LUSH Hair Products

Do you know what the LUSH Retro Collection is? It is a range of retired products that debut for a short period of time online. They range from shower smoothies to soap. You cannot smell them before hand. You cannot feel them before hand. You order the product based on reviews, ingredients, and the obvious. You go in blind.


Ibiza Party Shampoo & Superbalm Scalp Treatment:

Ibiza is a scalp soothing shampoo for all hair types. I normally go for hair care that helps my scalp since it is quite dry. This shampoo is also gentle, moisturizing, and aids with color protection (especially for blondes). I liked Ibiza, except my thick hair hated it. I got more tangles than normal. I heard that Superbalm partners well with Ibiza because they soothe and tame the scalp. Superbalm is infused with rose wax, lavender oil, chamomile blue oil, and rose absolute. Wax and oil are the primary components, which makes a slimy, gooey, oily mixture that takes a miracle to wash out. I am NOT a Superbalm fan. In fact, I do not think I will ever be.

Okra Conditioner:

Okra reminds me of gumbo (cajun soup) and fried okra (heaven on earth). I enjoy the smell and the unique texture of this strange vegetable. Okra revives damaged hair by softening strands, creating shine, and toning the scalp. It is best for hair that is REALLY damaged either by color treatments or heat (mine gets a bit fried from coloring). Now to the review – Okra smells terrible. The smell is incredibly strong with a major hint of vinegar. It burns. Conditioning is the last task this product does. It leaves hair dry and tangly. I would only recommend this product for people who need a major boost!


P.S. – Who do you think will win tonight’s #WorldCup matches? Greece and Columbia are my bets! Eos sure has some favorites!

LUSH Shower Empties

So I know this post is a bit late for me, but I had to post on this snowy Saturday here in New York! Some good news is that I have TWO more hauls coming up… I have already gone a little LUSH crazy this year (surprise, surprise). But today I wanted to share my shower empties from 2013!

Here is the empty collection:

So from left to right we have…

  • Rehab shampoo – this stuff is God sent. The smell is very citrus and awakening. I love how it actually takes my dry, winter hair to “rehab.” Rehab has been a favorite of mine. I actually have owned one 16.9 oz. and one 8.4 oz. I have not repurchased this one in a while!
  • American Cream conditioner – this is another God sent product. I love love the smell of this conditioner and actually repurchased it recently! So I have a fresh bottle of the strawberry and cream goodness in my shower! At first, I was not a fan of the product but it grew on me and after I repurchased it, I seriously loved it even more!
  • Fair Trade Honey shampoo – this is a great hair product from LUSH. It is a super, super think shampoo which makes it a bit different from other hair care products from LUSH. If you enjoy honey, this shampoo is for you! I have not yet repurchased this one.
  • Happy Happy Joy Joy conditioner – I love the smell of this! It feels like your head is growing into a flower garden! I used this tonight and I cannot stop smelling my lovely hair! The product is soooo good, they named it twice! I highly recommend this conditioner for floral enthusiasts. I have owned the 8.4 oz. bottle and recently purchased the large 16.9 oz. bottle.

So those are my shower empties! I love to see what products people are using up because that means they are GOOD! Especially LUSH ones! I want to see what LUSH products everyone else is using up! Share and comment below!
