Lush Fair Trade Honey Shampoo Review
Lush Fair Trade Honey Shampoo is the $h1t! Sorry there isn’t any other way to put it. This stuff is awesome in CAPS! Lush if you discontinue this I will have to cut you hard! Don’t say I didn’t warn you!
Don’t panic, it’s not yet available in the US but from my understanding it will be in November. I picked up a small bottle (like an idiot, I should have gotten a big bottle) from Lush UK recently and at first sniff it was not love but things quickly changed.
With honey, beeswax absolute, geranium, rose, bergamot and neroli this shampoo is like a field of flowers in a bottle. I purchased a small bottle as I don’t like the smell of honey. I find it, mmmm, I dunno strange and a little cloying however, Lush mixed it with a ton of florals note which makes it not only wonderful but easy on my nose too!
Dunno how long you’re a Lushie for but Aura Suavis was one of my favorite bubble bars back in the day! Around 2007, Lush created a shower gel in the scent for Forum members only. Needless to say I stocked up! Fair Trade Honey Shampoo brings some of Aura Suavis’ beautiful scent to my hair.
The combination of honey and a dominate geranium note definitely takes a note from Aura Suavis but Lush takes it further with rose and other floral notes that just blow my mind. The entire experience is like walking through a field of flowers with bees buzzing happily away in the background as they pollinate. But…at a sniff in the bottle, it’s disgusting. My nose kinda curled up sniffing it in the bottle and I could have easily tossed it aside because of this. It’s honey but also a bit of a sourness…don’t write it off though, try it in the shower, believe me, once it’s in your hair the scent becomes positively addicting!
The shampoo has a thick almost sticky texture (like honey) but it lathers up beautifully and rinses clean away. If you have color treated hair do be careful as I find Lush typically strips color badly. The scent of the shampoo lingers and lingers and lingers…! It has a nice throw too so you’ll likely get a comment or two asking what you washed your hair with.
As for me, I only wish they created a conditioner to go along with it…!
I need a large bottle, soon, like now, right away.
Muse Approved for purchase.
You MUST try it. It’s like perfume for your hair!
Available now from Lush UK and later this Fall from Lush NA.
P.S. Yes, I have a huge hunk of my hair next to my nose right now sniffing happily away! God, I love this stuff!
