New Lush Shampoo Bars

New Lush Shampoo Bars

Over the festive break I logged on to Lush and decided to place an order based around the new shampoo bars. In the end I only purchased two and a dinky, shiny round Lush tin to tuck safely away which ever bar I decide to use first. Eventually I would like to try all the Lush Shampoo bars that are suitable for my hair type and of course compose a comparison post but I do only have one head of hair so that is some way off. I digress here is what I purchased and why...

New Lush Shampoo Bars

Lush Dr Peppermint Shampoo Bar £5.75 - link

"This super duper shampoo bar uses the special properties of stimulating menthol to wake up lazy hair follicles and get them back to work, giving you thicker, more lustrous hair. That tingling sensation you'll feel is an increase in blood flow to all the little capillaries that supply your hair follicles with the fuel they need to make new hair. For fans of New, this is a great alternative if you fancy a change."

I am a little confused by this particular shampoo bar, it apparently has appeared on the Lush Kitchen website (where I purchased this) a few times, which leads a few to believe it may be on its way to becoming a permanent product. I truly have no idea but what I can say is that if you enjoy a deeply cleansing shampoo product then I have a sneaky feeling this is for you. The above Lush blurb states that it is great for thin or thinning hair but as someone with more hair than sense I can say that it is a great, one a week detoxing shampoo. Lush Dr Peppermint Shampoo Bar does leave my scalp tingling after use which is something I have yet to get used to but you can not beat it for removing product build up. As someone with bleached hair I don't personally think that I could use it for every wash through fear over further drying out my hair but on the plus side it could be great for those who have oilier hair than I. As a footnote, this smells utterly incredible - fresh and as you may expect incredibly minty, think along the lines of the Lush Dirty line in fragrance and you won't go far wrong.

New Lush Shampoo Bars

Lush Jason and the Argan Oil Shampoo Bar £5.75 - link.

"On a quest for stronger, shinier, softer hair? Try this argan oil-packed, Rose Jam-scented bar. Argan oil is combined with glycerine to give your hair touchable softness and lustrous shine. From this solid foundation restorative rose absolute and oil balances the scalp making this bar particularly perfect for setting fair hair ablaze with brightness and strength."

I have yet to pluck up the courage to use this bar due to the scent, the rose fragrance is simply overwhelming. Personally I wouldn't count myself as someone who dislikes rose scents but my goodness this is strong (it reminds me a lot of Lush Rose Jam Shower Gel), so much so that I really do not think I could bear whiffs of this on my hair all day long. I realise that this is such a pedantic reason not to use it but there you have it. I do wish I had waited until the new Lush shampoo bars went in store as I would have escaped this purchase. For the moment I have removed this from its little paper bag in the hopes the fragrance will evaporate slightly as it does sound a great shampoo. As a blonde I am forever looking for something that will brighten my hair and help put a little moisture back in to my parched tresses. Hopefully I will be able to update with a full review at some point...stay tuned.

  2. These look very cool - I've yet to try a shampoo bar from Lush but I love their Big shampoo so I'd like to try Seanik as it's drums the same beat as Big.

  8. There's something about these which scare me a little bit. I have been envious to try them for so long now, but because they're not from a conventional 'bottle' I think I'd be totally lost with them!

  15. Thanks so much for this post! I've been using the same old drug store hair shampoo for a while now which doesn't seem to be doing any magic! I've been wanting to try the Lush bars but have been waiting for a good review, which is what I've found on your blog! I'll be ordering Dr Peppermint soon! :)

  19. The rose bar sound like a great one except for that super strong scent, definitely do a review on it once it's lost a bit of its scent!

  20. Is it just me who doesn't really get along with Lush shampos and conditioners? I'm always disappointed, but seeing this maybe there is some good ones out there.

  25. My favorite Lush solid shampoo is the Godiva bar. I adore the scent of Jasmine, and it's so nourishing. I'll never go back to liquid shampoos.

    Much love,
