New Lush Shampoo Bars

New Lush Shampoo Bars

Not so long ago Lush expanded their Shampoo Bar range by adding six new variants, if you are a fan of solid shampoo there has never been a better time to be alive. Okay I am exaggerating slightly but it is good news if you have always liked the idea but found none of the previous options quite suited your needs. I was kindly sent all six to try out, one I already owned and have tested; the other five bars being completely new to me. I will state from the get go that this is by no means an in-depth review post but rather a break down...

New Lush Shampoo Bars

Montalbano

"Solve the case with this citrus-y shampoo bar that promises serious shine. Green olives improve the tensile strength of hair whilst cleansing rosemary absolute, Sicilian lemon oil and freshly squeezed lemon juice make hair gleam from root to tip."

If you like bright, fresh and lemon based scents I can imagine you will find this bar difficult to pass up in-store. Two washes does not warrant a useful review but I can say that it seems to work well with my blonde hair. No it doesn't remove brassy tones but I would swear blindly that the lemon oil is brightening my locks without being harsh or stripping. Have I noticed an increase in shine? Not yet but like I said it has been two washes.

"The calming combination of chamomile, ground almonds and oat milk gently soothe the scalp. Raise the spirits with Tunisian sourced neroli oil, proven to aid the release of serotonin (the happy hormone)! Lavender oil and absolute relax and balance, ideal for children two years and up; pass over the hair once or work into a light lather in the hands first."

I go through phases of enjoying Lavender scented products and others in which I don't. At the moment I am closer to the latter so I am holding off testing this for now. This could be the perfect shampoo for those who wash their hair at night or of course children. I can also see this being a great option for easily irritated scalps. I will report back in due course.

"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."

This I have tried and can vouch that it does all it claims to. I couldn't get past the strong rose scent unfortunately. You can read my full review here - link.

"Deliciously toffee-scented, this syrupy sweet bar will make your hair turn heads (and noses). Honey is renowned for adding softness and shine to locks. To top it all off uplifting sweet wild orange and bergamot oils create an aroma that transports your troubles away."

Another scent I am too keen on, annoyingly I have a really strong sense of smell so some products can be overwhelming - especially if I dislike the fragrance. I can see those who enjoy honey based scents lapping this up, I do want to give this a whirl as my hair could more than benefit from being softer and shinier. I will pluck up the courage to take this into the shower sooner rather than later - I promise.

"Get Rio-lly good hair with this shampoo bar, reminiscent of the Brazilian sun. Whole fresh organic oranges are packed with nutrients which will make your locks super shiny. Andiroba oil makes this especially moisturising when use on curly or Afro-Caribbean hair. We've also added ylang ylang oil and sweet orange oil to treat your hair to tropical fragrance."

The fragrance alone is enough to warrant a purchase - fresh yet mellow which is not something you can say about orange scents everyday. My hair doesn't tend to favour products aimed at Afro Caribbean hair, on the flip side my sister has a much tighter curl pattern that and has reported that she is besotted with this shampoo. Again it is only early days for her but so far she has told me that her hair is softer, shinier and far more manageable. I will get her to check in with a full review before the month is over.

"Don’t be latte for work, invigorate with a double shot of coffee grounds and roasted cocoa extract. Persian red henna leaves hair feeling deeply conditioned and gloriously glossy. Escape the daily grind with Fair Trade vanilla absolute and vetiver oil for a rich, enticing aroma. Great for darker shades and those with red tones"

I have blonde, very porous hair - although this does not deposit ant colour into the hair I am taking no chances. My mother on the other hand has newly henna dyed red/brown hair and couldn't be a better tester for this shampoo. Fragrance wise this is a little more herbal and surprisingly not reminiscent of Coffee. 

Do any of the above appeal to you? Or have you tried any of the six new additions?
All of the above Lush Shampoo Bars (and the others within the full line up) retail for £5.75 each.

  3. I'm a big fan of the LUSH shampoos bars after trying the cinnamon one. Didn't think I'd like it as I'm not one for cinnamon scents at all but loved how healthy it made my hair! Recently picked up the Jason and the Argan Oil so looking forward to trying that next! :)

  6. I've always wanted to try the Lush shampoo bars, and I think I'll have to start with the Montalbano to brighten up my blonde hair! Don't like the thought of all the chemicals that go into the usual blonde shampoos, plus Lush products always smell SO good :)

  13. I haven't used a Lush shampoo bar in years mainly because the first and only one I've used was awful. I'm a little tempted by these new ones but I can't stand strong scents on my hair so I'll have to give them all the sniff test in the store. Hopefully there's one I'll like.
