I love going into Lush "just for a look", famous last words and a few weeks ago I found myself in the Henry Street branch seeing what tickled my pickle. I'd a goo on me to pick up one of the shampoo bars as I'm a huge fan of them and have tried a few over the years. I'm obsessed with the Godiva and the New shampoo bars and have gone through a couple of them each over the years. But you know me, I needed to try something new. So I got sniffing and picked out two beauts.
The Jumping Juniper shampoo bar is the purple number there and is apparently only grand for hair that needs a deep clean. So if you're one who uses lots of products in your hair, this might be the one for you. I have greasy hair all the time and nothing pleases me more than to have nice squeaky hair at the end of my shower. It contains juniper berry to help regulate oil production along with lavender and rosemary to help calm and soothe the scalp. And despite leaving my hair feeling squeaky clean, it doesn't make it go all fluffy when I use it thanks to the lemon and lime oil which help smooth out the hair cuticle. It smells really clean, fresh, zingy and uplifting. All the things that make me happy!
The bright neon yellow Montalbano shampoo bar screams summer while filling my bathroom with the most uplifting citrus scent thanks to Sicilian lemon oil and lemon juice which must add up to one of my five a day! Again, this bar leaves my hair feeling squeaky clean with incredible shine, two of my favourite things when it comes to my locks.
I can't pick a favourite between these two, hence why I treat them evenly and take turns using them. Neither of them irritate or dry out my scalp and I shall continue to use them every day until they disintegrate. Oh, and if you're heading away anytime soon, these are perfect for popping into your carry on!
Have you tried any of Lush's shampoo bars? Which is your favourite?
