Mini Lush Haul!

I have the biggest soft spot for Lush products! I never used to, but about 6 months ago I started using their products and I've pretty much loved everything I've tried. So on the weekend I picked up a few things I was needing desperately!

Godiva Solid Shampoo
My first dabble into solid shampoos was the Seanik shampoo bar and I absolutely loved it! The sea salt and seaweed in it really soften my hair. I opted for Godiva this time because of the devine Jasmine scent and its claim to be a conditioning product.

Ro's Argan Body Conditioner
The Lush body conditioners are supposed to be used in a similar way to a hair conditioner, but on your body; slather on and when it rinses away your skin will be left super soft. I don't doubt this, reading the ingredients of almond oil, shea butter and argan oil, but I plan to use this in my hair as a conditioning treatment. I asked the girls at the store if this would be okay (since it doesn't say on the packaging), and they said it would be great! So I thought this would be a cheaper alternative (and better ingredients wise, no nasty silicons) to Morrocan Oil or similar products.

Porridge Soap
I've just used this this morning and I loved it! I love Lush soaps for the extra benefits of exfoliation and their great interesting scents! This soap smells just like porridge which I find really comforting in the Winter time, plus the little grains in it really do exfoliate! A tip of mine is to chop it up so that the soap doesn't just dissolve in your shower!

    1. I haven't used it yet but omg it smells amazing! I think it's the rose with vanilla!

    2. It does! i never actually thought about using it for my hair though, its a nice idea i will give it a try!

    3. If you're going to try it on your hair be cautious!! I heaped it on as a sort of treatment mask and left it for about 40 minutes. Once washed out and dried my hair was incredibly oily feeling (obviously because of all the oils in the product). When I shampooed my hair I could still smell the Ro's Argan conditioner so I'm guessing some of it was left in there, which leads me to think that it would work much better as a pre shampoo treatment! Good luck!! (I have really dry coarse and thick hair so it's NEVER felt like that from a conditioner before and doesn't even feel that oily after 5 days not washing. If your hair is fine I'd be really cautious!)
