Lush Jason And The Argan Oil Shampoo Bar Review

Lush Jason And The Argan Oil Shampoo Bar

Lush Jason And The Argan Oil Shampoo Bar is one of several new shampoo bars from Lush that recently launched in the UK and should be arriving shortly in the US for the New Year. One of the best things about Lush Jason And The Argan Oil Shampoo Bar is it smells like the very strong and delightful Lush Rose Jam fragrance! Yum!

Have a look!

Lush Jason And The Argan Oil

Lush Jason And The Argan Oil Shampoo Bar is either something you’re going to really love or really hate due to the fragrance. I find Rose Jam is a fragrance people adore or just curl their noses up. Personally, I like it but in lighter doses. It’s a very strong candy-ish Rose fragrance that has a mix of sweet, tart lemon. It’s very strong and quite lovely but it can also be headache inducing sometimes. I can’t say I mind it in my shampoo though as it does create beautifully scented hair! The fragrance really lingers long and strong in my hair.

Lush Jason And The Argan Oil Shampoo Bar has a lot going for but it also has a lot not going for. It does contain SLS so if you’re avoiding the ingredient unfortunately it is in fact included in this shampoo.

Lush Jason and the Argan Oil Shampoo Bar ingredients:
Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Agar Gel, Water (Aqua), Argan Oil, Glycerine, Perfume, Organic Rose Absolute, Geranium Oil, Rose Oil, Sicilian Lemon Oil, *Limonene, Coumarin, Citronellol, Geraniol, Colour 17200.

Meghan Telpner actually contacted Lush regarding SLS in their products and they replied to her rather vaguely unfortunately, you can read that article by clicking here.

The shampoo bar has a lovely formula but the SLS is a killjoy. I have longer hair that’s wavy with a bit of dryness and frizz as you know and this not only gives my hair a gorgeous fragrance but the argan oil and glycerine make my hair super duper soft plus I get great shine from the bar. It rinses out easily and doesn’t seem to cause any major buildup (I’ve been using it a week). Lush Shampoos sometimes make my hair like straw but this has a really nice hydrating formula.

If you’ve never used one of Lush’s Shampoo Bars before all you have to do is hop in the shower, wet your hair, wet the shampoo bar, and swipe it across your head a few times to work up a lather. Rinse, repeat if you want, and you’re go to go. Shampoo Bars are pretty darn nifty as they last a really long time and they are quite travel friendly.

As much as I love the fragrance and what this does for my hair I realize most won’t be happy with the SLS in the ingredients! So if you’re looking for an SLS-Free Shampoo Bar that smells equally nice and works just as well I’d highly recommend grabbing yourself one of Fortune Cookie Soap’s Shampoo Bars ๐Ÿ™‚

The Lush Jason And The Argan Oil Shampoo Bar is available now Lush UK’s website and will launch shortly in the US.

I purchased this item.

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    I would love to buy this since I am obsessed with rose jam. It’s too bad their shampoo bars strip my hair color so badly ๐Ÿ™ Thanks for the recommend on the fortune cookie soap shampoo! I’m gonna check those out!

    • Isabella Muse

      me too! but not too much of it hehe! ๐Ÿ˜€ I totally understand! Lush shampoos are def stripping sadly! Oh my pleasure hope you like they make great products!

      • Maggie

        This is pretty cool. I will have to pick up a solid shampoo to try out so I’ll know what works for when I travel. Going to keep a lookout for the other selections too. What are your favorites Muse? I’m always worried something too hydrating will weigh my hair down and something not hydrating enough will dry out my locks.

        • Isabella Muse

          new and doctor peppermint (no longer available sad sigh) are my all time favs Maggie ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Jennifer

    The scent of this bar is just overwhelming and totally headache inducing. I really wanted to love it.

    I don’t know if you knew this or not… but all six of the newly released lush shampoo bars (Brazilliant, Copperhead, Honey I washed my hair, Lullaby, Montalbano, and Jason and the Argan Oil) Have been formulated with half the SLS of prior/existing shampoo bars from Lush. In fact they warn that the new ones may not suds up as well as the other ones for that reason. Their exact words were “We here at Lush have heard your complaints about SLS in our products, and our new range of shampoo bars are just the beginning of keeping our promise to make products you can trust”

    The problem Lush has been having with removing the SLS (the stuff in most soap that causes it to foam and bubble up) is that although SLS strips the oil coating off the hair shaft, it is still safer for the hair than other foaming/bubbling agents currently on the market, that are put into shampoos and soaps labeled “Sulfate Free”. SLS simply strips the coating off the hair shaft and scalp… whereas current non-SLS replacement foaming agents, actually cause pitting in the keratin scales of the hair shaft, or worse actually burn Keratin away over time. The initial effect of using a shampoo labeled “Sulphate Free” is a smoothing effect, but not because of it being good for the hair… but rather that the SLS replacement agents actually burn away the damaged edges of the scales along the hair shaft. It would be great if these agents stopped at that, but they don’t, they continue to burn the hair shaft, because chemically these SLS replacement agents are similar to hair straightening treatments, only in much lower doses. People will notice over time that their hair becomes easily tangled (the burnt surface starts acting like velcro), that the hair seems weighed down, or that their hair has lost curl or looks chemically processed.

    I don’t work for Lush, never have… I am just a science geek that has watched this “Sulphate Free” trend and has been concerned that in order to avoid something that could be fixed with a good conditioner… folks are trading off for more potent hair burning replacement chemicals.

      interesting! thanks for sharing Stephanie I had not heard this! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Wolvers

      Hmm that’s interesting, I might have to do some more reading on that…
      I was thinking is that I’m sure there’s a plant that can produce soap-like qualities. (Soap-wort and Yucca root, from a quick google) which would be better as it’s also natural…also they are native to the UK….
