The Muse remembers quite well the first time she fell in love with Lush Washday Greens Shampoo. It was quite a few years back and the shampoo had already been long since discontinued however during a UK forum party they had a few bottles up for grabs and grab the Muse did.
After hauling two bottles I patiently awaited the post to bring me my new shampoo. Soon after I was sporting minty green fresh hair and loving it all away!

Thank the Lush gods that Washday Greens is making it’s reintroduction to the Lush Shampoo category (how long it’ll stick around is anyone’s guess) thanks to Retro Lush. Retro Lush is where Lush brings back popular items back from the Lush graveyard for a limited time.
Lush Washday Greens is possibly one of the most unique shampoos I’ve tried from Lush simply because of it’s interesting scent. Think of a combination of fresh cut grass, crisp, green plus add in some cool spearmint and you’ll have Washday Greens!
Washday Greens is specifically meant to tame fine, flyaway hair or greasy hair. I’m honestly none of those things but I still make proper use of it since my hair does occasionally get weighted down with hair gel and the likes. It gets hair really squeaky clean plus it makes it smell incredible.
Highly suggest nabbing one and total Muse Approval for purchase. Lush Washday Greens Shampoo is one of those items that make you want to haul bottles and bottles for fear it might be gone forever one day!
Anyone a lover?

I freaking love the C.O. Bigelow Lemon line. The shower gel, the hand soap, the moisturizer…it’s all good news to me. So get this, best news evers, C.O. Bigelow Lemon Eau de Parfum. Can you say freak out!?
Click it for the deets!
So check it, C.O. Bigelow Lemon Eau de Parfum is inspired by my beloved, favorite Lemon Body Cream from C.O. Oh my god likey! It’s a pure, sparkling lemon fragrance that blends gren lemon leaves, citrus notes, and a creamy white musk. Sounds pretty much like what heaven smells like (I’ll write a mass e-mail when I get there one day so you know if I was right about that!).
The scent already has a near 5 star rating on the Bath and Body Works website. Likey some more! The price tag isn’t half bad either for an EDP which is $34.50 for a 3.5oz size.
I so need C.O. Bigelow Lemon Eau de Parfum in my life please. As much as I LOVE Loccitane Citrus Verbena it just doesn’t seem to last on me, sadness. So slap me excited that the C.O. Bigelow one has an EDP, maybe it’ll linger longer on me? Oh please, please, please!
The Muse is a listening and has heard a few pleas yammering for a review so as soon as I can get my hands on it, I’ll be giving the good word!
I’m trying out a new category here at Musings called Beauty Babble. The Beauty Babble section will basically be a scenario of “possibilities” with questions and answers about what you’d do in situations where cosmetics would be needed!
Your house on fyressssss! Oh my god! What beauty item would you grab while running out the door! (might as well add this one into our Beauty Babble this week)
Jump ahead to see this week’s Beauty Babble!
Your in a deep sleep, REM has set in, your snoring out of one nostril and drooling from your mouth while dreams of Colin Firth sweeping you across an English country side dances through your head! Suddenly an annoying beeping makes a guest starring appearance in your Pride and Prejudice fantasy, what the hells is it? Oh my god it’s the smoke alarm! You have to jump out of your bed and get out of your house (or apartment, parent’s basement, rental room, etc…) as quick as you can! You have to grab one beauty product! What would it be?
The Muse says concealer. I could probably live without the rest but I need concealer to cover up my scary puffy eyes, fine lines, and dark circles! I’d probably go with the Mally Concealer System, I figure I could pass it off as two products in one since it has a setting powder and a creamy concealer.
You’re on a gorgeous cruise, the weather is beautiful, you’ve been enjoying fun in the sun and plenty of eating at that never ending buffet (does the food every end?). As you’re waiting on that buffet line in your string bikini the captain announces you must abandon ship! Waiting life boats are prepared to dump you on a deserted tropical island. The captain happens to be a makeup junkie so he allows you to select one item from your train case to take with you! What will it be?
The Muse says SPF! As tempting as it is to say concealer or powder (imagine my oily face in that humidity), I’d much rather protect my skin with a good SPF, I’d simply die if I ended up all tanned and gross looking (the Muse no likey tanning). I’d probably go with Shiseido Ultimate Sun Protection as it’s one of my favs!
As you’re yawning through your work day and procrastinating terribly by reading beauty blogs you notice your favorite blogger is going to the moon! You read further to hear she (or he) is giving away tickets to the moon, whoa. Foaming from the mouth you eagerly comment and enter for your chance to go to the moon with your favorite beauty blogger (your fav beauty blogger should be the Muse btw plus as soon as cosmetic companies start giving away trips to the moon you know damn well I’m holding a contest for one!). A week later you’re contacted about winning but sadly you’re only allowed to take one item with you due to strict moon travel accommodations. What do you take with you to the moon?
I’d so take some sort of anti-frizz gel or spray! Imagine a no gravity situation? You’d be looking like Einstein as soon as your foot hit pay dirt! I’d probably go with Lush King of Mods, Soap & Glory Hair Supply, or some of that Sunsilk Captivating Curls smoothing cream!
Now it’s your turn. Put your self in all the above situations, a fire, a trip to the moon, and a humid tropical island. Now think hard….what one item would you take with you to those destinations? This Beauty Babble is all about Survival Beauty!

The Muse has a thing for mint. She loves it. In her hair care, in her bath and body regime…in her toothpaste? Oh wait, everyone likes it in their toothpaste right?
But seriously, there is nothing like mint in your shower to refresh you during a warm day or to wake you up (in a cold, chilling way) on a Monday morning! Philip B Peppermint and Avocado Volumizing & Clarifying Shampoo brings the mint plus washes my hair clean through with a delightful tingle!
Check it below!
Philip B Peppermint and Avocado Volumizing & Clarifying Shampoo is one of Philip B’s most acclaimed products and it’s obvious why with first use. This powerful aromatic shampoo gets your hair singing in the morning. It clairifies hair with a formula of sixteen pure plant extracts, eleven essential and carrier oils plus a cool blast of 2.3% pure peppermint oil.
Omg! Loves this stuff! For serious! It literally makes my scalp tingle and proceeds to follow up with a cooling sensation that’s positively addicting! It makes my hair feel utterly clean and fresh plus thee gorgeous minty fresh scent wakes me up in the morning that is of course if the cooling tingling feeling didn’t help!
The formula is safe for color-treated hair as well so it’s ideal for just about anyone who needs a shampoo that will clarify their hair plus wake their lazy bum up in the morning.
The Muse only has the 2oz size but she obviously needs to spring for the 11.8oz size for $40 bucks! Philip B Peppermint and Avocado Volumizing & Clarifying Shampoo fastest favorite evers!
Muse Approved for purchase if you’re a minty junkie like me!
Total must have for Summer!
The Muse loves how innovative Demeter Fragrance is. Particularly when they are busy introducing fragrances that smell like..a funeral home?
Gotta love it!
Jump ahead for the sweet smell of strange!
If you’re looking for unique you probably should head over to Dememter Fragrances, they have unique, wild, crazy, and a little strange on the back burner waiting for you!
Check below for some of the crazy blends the Muse wonders about (who buys this stuff anyway?).
You’d be lying if you said you never ate paste or sniffed glue. I remember in second grade we’d eat the craft paste our art teacher had in big jumbo size tubs. I also recall sniffing glue because it smelled so good, not for the buzz….honest! Re-live your youth with Demeter Glue!
I’m not partial to the delightful scent of Play-Doh but Demeter obviously thinks some people are!
Turpentine? Holy cow that’s some serious high!
I love seafood, who doesn’t? But my love does not extend to smelling like it. Thanks but no thanks.
Embalming fluid comes to mind….is that macabre?
I believe you’ll need a bit of Dirt with that Funeral Home! What? It’s the next logical step I’m told.
I can get on board with the scent of crayons! Who didn’t love the smell of a freshly opened pack of crayolas? That was what loved smelled like when I was five year’s old!
I think it’s safe to say they pretty much got it all covered. Now I’m just waiting for them to introduce shrimp scampi, a meatball sub and gas. I’d so buy gas!
Name a few crazy blends you think Demeter should take on!
