Today I tried out the Garnier Whole Blends Coconut Water & Vanilla Milk Shampoo and Conditioner today because I was in the mood for a little coconut!

What’s to love?

My mom is a huge fan of the Garnier Whole Blends Honey Treasures line so We deiced to pick up the new coconut version. This one smells really nice with a great combo of coconut and vanilla. The pearlized shampoo lathers well and rinses out clean and the conditioner feels light and smooth.

I love using coconut shampoo to clarify and remove build-up from my hair and this one works great. I love to switch up my shampoo and conditioner between Lush and I also use Garnier and Aveda products to keep my hair manageable. I like to switch because I think it gives my hair more life and because I love the variety.

Overall I would use this one again for the smell and hydration.

Price: $3.99 for each bottle.

Lush Honey I Washed My Hair Shampoo Bar Review

Honey always makes me think of Fall, maybe because everywhere I go there are bees buzzing around! The good news is that the Lush Honey I Washed My Hair Shampoo Bar gives you the honey without the bees.

What’s to love?

If you’re looking to try a Lush Shampoo Bar this might be the one you try first. It’s a win for the whole family and has a very mild scent.

This Shampoo Bar is made with Fair Trade Honey and Bergamot Oil (Citrus Aurantium bergamia) and the lather is incredible and big, it’s super smooth and smells like honey and toffee. I use this bar about once a week to get soft and shiny hair.

Lush says you can get 80 washes out of each bar and maybe I’m using too much but I get about 50-60 washes which isn’t too bad. I do notice that the bars tend to dry out when they get really small so I think I am going to get the covered tin to see if that helps.

What’s your favorite Lush Shampoo Bar?

Price: $9.95

 

Lush Brazilliant Shampoo Bar Review

The Lush Brazilliant Shampoo Bar tames my wild hair and leaves it shiny.

orange

What’s to love?

I have crazy, wild thick hair. I make Hermione Granger’s hair look tame so I need to be careful which shampoo I choose otherwise I’ll end up looking like I stuck my finger in an electrical outlet. Not only is my hair thick it also gets frizzy so humidity is my worst hair enemy.

Luckily I found Brazilliant which is about the orangiest (not sure if that’s a word) shampoos I have ever used but my gosh it works. Brazilliant is pure orange in color and smell and it creates huge lather that rinses totally clean.

After using Brazilliant my hair is noticeably shinier and tamer. I use Brazilliant about 4 days a week and mix it up with other Lush Shampoo Bars for variety.

Brazilliant also has andiroba oil which is supposed to strengthen hair which I think is true because my hair condition has improved so much since using Brazilliant.

Also check out my Lush Brazilliant review and demo on YouTube!

 

Garnier Whole Blends Honey Treasures Shampoo and Conditioner Review

I have a ton of these Garnier Whole Blends Honey Treasures Shampoo and Conditioner samples so I wanted to try them out. This set is from my August Allure Beauty Box. I do love that Garnier has been so generous will handing these out. I love trying a new product before I commit to buying.

What’s to love?

First I have to say that I’m a fan of the Garnier Fructis products and before I found the Lush Shampoo Bars I used it quite a bit. I do like to use regular shampoo occasionally to mix things up and I’m impressed with the Whole Bends Honey Treasures.

The product contains royal jelly, honey and propolis which makes for a very creamy nourishing formula. The white pearlized shampoo could almost be mistaken for conditioner it’s so creamy. The shampoo is not a high-lather product but feels silky and rinses clean. The conditioner is super creamy and more on the heavy side.

Both have a honey/caramel scent that has a touch of a purfumey smell. Meaning that it’s not super earthy but I liked it. It feels more like a salon product for a much better price.

I can see myself using Honey Treasures after I color my hair or when it feels more dried out as it is super conditioning. I will probably pick up the full-sized products soon.

Lush Jumping Juniper Shampoo Bar Review

Jumping Juniper is now my favorite Lush Shampoo Bar which means that I have a serious addiction to these shampoo bars because I am always discovering a new favorite!

l.jpg

What’s to love?

Jumping Juniper is so fresh. It’s a combination of lavender and rosemary with some citrus and juniperberry oil mixed in. I was attracted to this bar because it says it’s for oily hair which I defiantly have.

The lather on this bar is super thick, smells amazing and made my hair feel really clean. I did notice afterwards that my hair was softer and shinier and then next day I had less oil so I’m thinking it works.

So I’m adding this one to my Lush Shampoo Bar rotation and I’m sure I’ll find a new one to add to the mix soon!

Here’s my YouTube Demo of the Lush Jumping Juniper Shampoo Bar.

Amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo Review

I finally got around to reviewing the Amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo I got in my July 2016 Birchbox. I usually wash my hair everyday so I didn’t have a chance to use this product but when I did I really liked it.

a

What’s to love?

First, the Amika dry shampoo is free from talc or aluminum which I love and it’s Made in the USA.

I sprayed the product on my hair and although I don’t usually like aerosols this one felt ok aside from the pressure, it does come out fast so do follow the instructions of holding it 10-12 inches away from your scalp!

The scent is really nice, it’s Buckthorn Berry which I had never heard of. It’s a nice light  berry scent that I loved. After spraying I rubbed the product  through  my hair with my fingers. It drys fast and left my hair silky smooth. There was no stickiness and my hair did feel a lot fresher.

I would absolutely use this product while traveling or when I had to go a day without washing my hair. A great idea for people on the go.

Burt’s Bees 2 in 1 Tearless Shampoo & Conditioner for Puppies Review

I’m reviewing something a bit different today because dogs need some beauty help too. The Burt’s Bees 2 in 1 Tearless Shampoo & Conditioner for Puppies is my favorite dog shampoo ever.

bb

What’s to love?

We have a 2-year-old Chiweenie named Coco and I’ve been using the Burt’s Bees shampoo on her since she was a puppy and I still use the same formula. This is the only dog shampoo that makes her smell great, gives her a shiny coat and is non-irritating.

I just use about a quarter sized drop and rub into Coco’s fur. It lathers really nicely and washes out clean. Burt’s Bees and an entire pet line if you want to try another formula too.

It’s got Buttermilk and Linseed Oil in the formula and has a very earthy natural scent. This product is Made in the USA to which I love.

Here’s Coco resting post bath in her bed!

Lush Seanik Shampoo Bar Review

Happy Monday everyone!

About I month ago I recommend the Lush Seanik Shampoo Bar as part of my 3 Must Have Lush Shampoo Bars For Summer post but I wanted to post an update a month later.

I had pneumonia back in February and my hair was in awful shape, however now that I’ve been using Seanik 3-4 times a week mixed with the other Lush Shampoo Bars I’ve noticed a huge improvement. It’s much shinier and thicker! I’m trying to let it grow out again and I’m also hoping that now that it’s in better condition it will grow faster.

Why I love Seanick!

In addition to saving my hair I just can’t say enough about the Lush Shampoo Bars. I love how Seanick smells, it’s a fresh ocean smell but not perfumey at all. Just rub it on your head for a super thick and creamy lather that rinses out super clean.

I’m kind of a Shampoo Bar addict now and want to try every Lush variety at some point.

PS – In case anyone was wondering I don’t work for Lush! I just really, really love their products.

Lush Montalbano Shampoo Bar Review

Happy Father’s Day all!

I picked up a new Lush Shampoo bar this weekend and I think it’s my new favorite. Montalbano is all about the citrus and shine AND my husband loves it too so you may want to consider this for the dad in your life.

lushsb

Why I love the Lush Montalbano Shampoo Bar.

Montabano is a deep cleansing bar that really gets your hair squeaky clean. The bar lathers into a huge pile of lemon scented bubbles that get way down to your scalp. There is also a touch of Rosemary (to soothe irritation) and Popping Candy (which is Isomalt, Lycasin and Carbon Dioxide) for fun? My hair is super shiny after using Montabano.

I feel like this is the big brother to Brazilliant which is an orange scented shampoo bar.
