Subtract my age from the mileage on my speeding heart, credit cards.

Now that I've been able to experience my Lush purchase to its full potential I really have to say I don't understand all the hoopala. It just seems like an over priced alternative, but I do love that they are organic, vegan, and environment friendly. Though I am in no way all those things, lol. I ordered Godiva solid shampoo, (because Reincarnate was not available at the time), Veganese conditioner, and a Snow Fairy gift box that was on clearance. This was my first experience with this type of product and the extent of my knowledge was from various blogs and youtube videos and decided it was my turn.

The gem out of my entire purchase was Godiva solid shampoo. When I took the bar out of its little baggie I was overwhelmed by how earthy it smelled. Trust me when I say the smell is STRONG. Though they state just a few swipes of the bar on completely saturated hair is enough I fully take advantage of this hand held shampoo. I wash my hair 2-3 times a week because of how thick and damaged my hair is I am confident that I still have another month or two left out of it. That alone is impressive since a normal bottle of shampoo typically lasts less than a month for me. I noticed some differences in my hair after using Godiva a few times and it really is both a shampoo and conditioner. But my hair feels more difficult when wet than it did before I started using this as my regular shampoo. $9.95 for 1.9oz.

I received these two samples but I have yet to use them. Honestly I have no urge to do so. Everything in the package smelled like Jasmine from the Godiva shampoo, lol. And I find banana anything to be disgusting.

Now Veganese conditioner...lord I can't say anything good about this product. It's claim to fame is the fact that it is 100% vegan and replaces the lanolin one typically finds in conditioners. Well this product comes out like water, literally, it just drips out  of my hands before I can even put it in my hair. It smells absolutely revolting. The only reason I even attempt using this useless conditioner is because I spent $8.95 for a 3.3oz bottle. Ridiculous.

Now for the Snow Fairy gift box. All throughout the interwebbinz I have noticed that Snow Fairy body wash has become a serious cult favorite. I can's pink, glittery, and it smells like childrens cough syrup. Yeah, bubblegum flavored Tylenol. I couldn't believe the disappointment I felt in first using Snow Fairy, I felt bad for my shower poof. The packaging was beautiful and I even saved the gift wrapping and little bell but the products inside, not worth it. I'm glad it was just a clearance leftover from Christmas. Snow Fairy is purely a pretty bottle to display in the bathroom. Between the smell and uselessness of the glitter inside....just useless. Snow Fairy is a seasonal product that comes out around Christmas time. But if you truly care about your smell and the people around you I sincerely hope you pass on this. As for the two soaps that came with it I haven't bothered using them whatsoever. Just more decoration I guess.

Sorry to be a Debbie Downer folks but I am sincerely disappointed in this purchase. My next and probably last purchase from Lush will be to try their Reincarnate shampoo like I originally wanted. How about you? Did anyone else have a bad or good experience with Lush? Hope this was somewhat insightful for ya'll and hopefully you find better things to spend your hard earned money on!

As always...Cletus and Zombri love!
