The Muse loves herself some Lush, with a passion. I’ve been a Lush fan as far back as Cosmetics To Go (If you’re a Lushie you’ll know all about CTG) but I’ve always wondered at their mentality over at Lush. Some of my very favorite scents never make it into products I’d really love to see scented with them. Like I’d love a Snow Fairy scented shampoo, granted I can use Snow Fairy Shower Gel in my hair but still I’d adore a shampoo and conditioner scented like this!
The good news is you can find dupes, damn good dupes, of all your favorite Lush scents.
Jump ahead for the deets!
An e-tailer by the name of Lathers & Lights has every single Lush scent duped and available in a wide variety of perfumes, bath and body goodies, shampoos, conditioners, and more!
Imagine, the world of Lush scents at your fingertips that can be blended into any product you want. Fantastic right?
I recently purchased a few conditioners from Lathers & Lights and although I simply hate silicons near my hair I do tolerate them from time to time.
I purchased four conditioners in four Lush dupe scents. First off the conditioners are not so fabulous, they are a bit drying, plus the silicons cause havoc with my tresses. Also out of the four scents only two were spot on dupes. I imagine that this is why Lush doesn’t always offer certain scents in certain products as the essential oils possibly morph when mixed with different mediums.
The two that did work were Candy Clouds which is a Candy Fluff dupe and Rock Candy which is a Rockstar Soap dupe. These were both fantastic! My hair is smelling all Rockstar-like today, loves it!
Now the two scents that converted badly were Sultana’s Secret (Sultana of Soap Dupe) and Champagne Flurries (Champagne Snow Showers). Sultana’s Secret ended up smelling like Jungle to me and Champagne Flurries ended up smelling floral instead of the effervescent orange I so dearly love.
My two disappointments really haven’t stopped me from wanting to pursue more of Lathers & Lights offerings as seriously Lush dupes? I’m on that! I do wish Lush would embrace the idea of doing a few shampoos and such as this and never really understood why they haven’t. Seems like a great idea with lovers like me around.
I’ve seen a few e-tailers doing Lush dupe scents but from what I understand they are incredibly expensive oils to keep in stock which is why I adore that Lathers & Lights stocks almost every Lush scent around!
