Being home I have a ton of time to care for my hair and actually my hair care routine hasn’t changed much since my pre-quarantine days! I never really liked the beauty salon — I’m more of a do-it-yourself girl. My hair is extremely thick and wild which makes it hard to get a good cut so I just do it myself.
Here’s me in the 10th grade and from last year! I had huge hair in the 80’s and it was usually feathered and sprayed. A stiff wind couldn’t blow my style away!
My natural hair color is a dark blonde so I usually lighten it with the L’Oréal Age Perfect by Excellence hair dye in shade 8N Medium Natural Blonde or 9N Light Natural Blonde. It’s a bit darker when I first dye it but lightens over time.
Here my are go-to quarantine hair care products!
From Lush – I have been using the Lush Shampoo Bars now for over 4 years now and I love them! These round disks provide a fragrant natural feeling lather. My favorite shampoo bars are Seanik (sea salt), Montalbano (lemon) and Jumping Juniper (lavender). I created a video review below too!
From Paul Mitchell – OMG the scent of this the Paul Mitchell Tea Tree shampoo is simply amazing and soooooo strong! I leaves my hair squeaky clean but I can’t use it everyday because it’s a bit harsh on colored hair.
From Aveda – I love the Aveda Damage Remedy that came in my FabFitFun Box. I use this treatment on my wet hair and it does a great job with overall hair repair. I also love the natural scent from Aveda products.
One of my favorite new Spring products from Lush this year is the Mermaid Tail Bubble Bar! This blue and purple bubble is adorable and smells amazing!
The new 2-in-1 Mermaid Tail Bubble Bar contains fresh Grapefruit Oil, Fair Trade Organic Cocoa Butter and Ylang Ylang Oil which gives it a fruity relaxing scent. It’s so pretty too with a blue and purple swirl and a blue tail that is a silky bath oil!
When I run the Mermaid Tail Bubble Bar under the faucet I get beautiful fluffy bubbles and the water turns a nice light lavender shade.
Lush is currently offering free shipping on orders over $40 until April 30th as all the stores are closed down.

As many of you know I am a huge fan of Harry Potter and especially Severus Snape so I decided to create a Christmas gift box based on my blog post — If Severus Snape Shopped at Lush!
It’s super easy and fun to put together your own Severus Snape box for Christmas! I picked up a Halloween themed box from JoAnn and paired it with some potion bottles from Michael’s. Then I chose a bunch of Lush products that I think Snape would use (yes, I believe he’s a bath hedonist!) I also added a Halloween Kringle Candle and some Rae Dunn wooden matches because if you’re going to bath correctly you need a candle!
Finally, I added an official Severus Snape wand for an added touch! Check out my video on YouTube to see how I created this fantastic Harry Potter Christmas gift,
Here’s a pic of my If Severus Snape Shopped At Lush Christmas Gift Box!

Returning products for Lush Halloween 2019
Lush Sparkly Pumpkin Halloween Bubble Bar Sparkly Pumpkin is a favorite of mine! It’s loaded with glitter which makes it a Fall favorite in our house. The Sparkly Pumpkin Bubble Bar is bright orange with a coating of gold glitter and it even has a cute brown cinnamon stick stem in the center.
Monster’s Ball Bath Bomb This pink and blue little monster is so cute and perfect for turning your Halloween bath into a purple spa.
Bewitched Bubble Bar This cute black cat bubble bar has yellow eyes and a bergamot and blackberry scent.
So far every single product that I’ve tried in the Lush Spring 2019 line is amazing and the Rose Bombshell Egg is no exception.
What’s to love?
First up the Rose Bombshell is huge! As you can see in my hand. It comes in two split halves and it’s tied up with a brown paper ribbon.
The center is hollow and is filled with dried rose petals and salt and the scent it pure rose.
In my YouTube demo I used the bottom half with the roses and salt. This one floats like a boat and is a very fast fizz. Once the bottom breaks through the water pops the rose petals up. It’s super cool to watch.
The water from the Lush Rose Bombshell Egg turns a milky opaque light pink and it does leave a pink ring in the tub. I did find in fairly easy to rinse out.
The price is $9.95 and is a superb deal for how much product you get.
If you’re look for some good clean kid fun look no further than the Lush Volcano Fun kit! This shampoo, soap and bubble bath combo is so much fun to play with!
The scent is tangerine, Ylang, Ylang, Lavender oil, Fennel oil and popping candy for even more fun!
You get a block of dark grey Fun that you can mold into a volcano mountain. Then add red, orange and yellow Fun as the fire and flames!
Finally, you get a mini red, orange and yellow (star) bath bomb to place in the center for the lava!
The volcano was pretty easy to create, the key is to not have holes in the base of the volcano or the water runs out. That happened to me. I wish they would make this in a mega roll so that we could make an even bigger volcano. It was so much fun!
The fizzing lava is the best part! Watch my YouTube video to see it in action.
Lush is hitting a World Series home with the Spring collection and the products continue to impress me! Today I had the chance to demo the Lush More Tea And Sympathy Bath Bomb which is the sequel to the 2017 Tea And Sympathy Bath Bomb which was a fast fizzer. The new version is a very, very slow fizzer!
What’s to love?
This large pink tea pot bath bomb has a green yarn string and a tea label to make it actually look like a pot of tea! Take the string and “dip” you pot into your bath water for an amazing experience.
More Tea And Sympathy has Green Tea Absolute, Neroli Oil and Blue Cornflowers. The bath bomb releases a gorgeous shade of pink and the water turns a light pink.
There’s also a surprise inside! The tea bag in the center of More Tea And Sympathy has Camellia Sinensis; Centaurea Cyanus; Citrus Aurantium Bergamia which make for an even more delightful bath! I am LOVING this one.
See my Lush More Tea And Sympathy Bath Bomb Demo on YouTube!
Oh man Lush! You are going to kill my wallet for Spring. The Lush 2019 Spring line is amazing and the first thing I tried is the Wild Butterfly Bath Bomb.
This orange and yellow butterfly is not only magical but it smells so good with Sweet Orange Oil and Oil Leaf Absolute. Just wow! Total sensory overload in a good way.
The water form Wild Butterflies is a bright orange but I didn’t get any staining on my fingers. It’s a medium fizz with orange and yellow trails. Wild Butterflies is only $5.25 and I am going to stock up on this one.
See my demo on YouTube and be sure to sub for the rest of the Lush 2019 Spring collection!
I’ve been using the Lush Shampoo Bars now for almost two years and my favorites up until now have been Jumping Juniper, Seanik and Montalbano but now I think I have a new favorite and it’s the green Karma Komba!
First up I wanted to show what a shampoo bar looks like dry when you first bring it home from Lush, it basically looks like a hockey puck.
What’s to love?
Now normally I’m not a fan of Patchouli Oil so that’s why I waited so long to get Karma Komba but I’ve heard so many good things I just had to try it.
While It does have a slight Patchouli Oil I don’t think it’s that strong and you also get Sweet Orange Oil, Lavendin Oil, Lemongrass Oil, Elemi Oil and Gardenia Extract so it does have its own unique sent.
However what I love about Karma Komba is that it makes my hair shine. I’ve got big, curly hair and it tames it really too. This is definitely my new favorite.
