Anyone see the new One Bath and Body display at Target? I seen it mmmm way back in February and picked up a few items but I’ve just been to crazy to get the review live.
Finally….here I am ready to discuss it.
Today I thought I’d bring you a review of the One Shampoo Bars.
What Is It?
A line of natural bath, body, and hair care with a suspiciously Lush Cosmetic look and feel. The Shampoo Bars are a disc of soap that can be used to wash your hair. Simply wet it in the shower, swipe it across your head, and lather up! Rinse, repeat, rinse!
Well…word is out these are rather delightful! I like them alot. They basically perform identically to Lush Shampoo Bars and have a way nicer price tag. Each puck will last you ages and ages so you can probably get a ton of use out of a single puck compared to a bottle of your favorite shampoo (a single puck equals the size of a 24oz bottle of shampoo). They lather up beautifully, get hair clean, plus are handy to travel around. Where as Lush charges you for a Shampoo Bar Tin, One includes it in so you’re purchasing not only a Shampoo Bar but also a great little tin to tuck it into after use.
I purchased two of the shampoo bars and solid conditioner to start my adventure.
One Hair Biscuit is pretty much a Lush Godiva dupe up. It smells kinda similar but definitely not identical to Godiva but performs pretty much the same way. It has a shea marbling so it makes hair feel quite nourished and shiny after use.
I also tried out the One Squeaky Clean Shampoo Bar which is kinda a dupe for Lush Ultimate Shine. This has a slightly fruity scent, which fruit I couldn’t tell you as its not unidentifiable to my nose but it does smell very nice. It’s made for oily hair which I don’t have however I like using oily hair shampoo types for days my hair has alot of build up and I need a detox. This works great at getting my hair super clean so it feels 10lbs lighter. Quite a nice bar.
And finally I got the One Hair Boost Conditioner which also has a slightly fruity scent going on that fresh and clean smelling. I’ve actually tried many a Lush solid conditioner and don’t quite love them as they are a tad difficult to use and this kinda suffers the same fate. I do need something that’s a bit richer to get my hair conditioned well and this sadly isn’t it.
The conditioner bar isn’t rich enough for long hair chicas or girl’s with wavy, curly hair. If your hair is as long and as wavy as mine you’ll want to indulge in way richer conditioner than this. I will say that I like the products but I’m not entirely comfortable with the complete dupe of products by Lush. Although the products have different ingredients and in some cases scents than Lush ones, they do look TOO similar to Lush products for my comfort level. The Hair Biscuit Shampoo Bar is one example but a few other items are very Lush looking to me. It does make the product seem a little unoriginal having it look EXACTLY like Lush Cosmetics version.
Who might like it?
- Anyone seeking out an easy way to travel with their shampoo and conditioner (these take little to no space and are solid so traveling by air is easy!).
- Anyone who wants a cheaper version of Lush favs (these range from $5.99-$6.99 where as Lush is $9.95 and up plus the cost of a tin to keep it in where as these come with one).
- Anyone who wants a new cleansing experience for their hair.
- Anyone who doesn’t have easy access to Lush Cosmetics in their city or town.
Who might not like it?
- Anyone who’s strongly dedicated to Lush Cosmetics already.
- Anyone who isn’t quite loving the idea of a solid shampoo.
I thought the affordable price tag and interesting packaged set of both a tin and a shampoo bar was rather delightful. Lush does offer a free tin when purchasing two shampoo bars but that would set you back $20 this is a mere $6.99 and comes with a tin. The products are very good and worth having a look into however as I said I didn’t really adore the obvious copies of Lush products.
Overall, I enjoyed these alot but I fear I’m too much of a Lush fan to switch completely. Very nice but I probably won’t buy these again.
