LUSH R&B and Veganese

Most people know Lush for their range of bath products — bath bombs, bath melts, bubble bars... you name it, they make it. Unfortunately, there isn't a bath in my house, so when I first wander into Lush at the beginning of this year it was in search of a shampoo. Since then, my love for the brand has grown, and I buy nearly all of my haircare products from them.

My latest trip to the Cardiff store was fuelled by the need for a new conditioner. Initially the assistant recommended American Cream, which I've heard is lovely, but I'm allergic to strawberries so I need to stay well away. The same thing happened with Retread, which contains melon (I have quite a severe melon allergy too). Luckily, Veganese is packed full of ingredients that I can use: lavender flower infusion, rosemary infusion, lemon oil, and lemon juice to name but a few.

I love Veganese. I have fine hair, so quite often conditioners can be too heavy, but this one is the perfect balance between light and nourishing, and it leaves my hair feeling smooth without weighing it down. It also doesn't go the other way and make it too frizzy and flyaway.

I was only looking for conditioner, but on hearing that I suffer from dry ends in winter the assistant immediately picked out the R&B Hair Moisturiser. She had similar hair to mine, and claimed that it had made a real difference to the ends of her hair. It's quite expensive, with prices starting at £11.50 for a 100g pot, and I didn't want to pay that much money for something when I didn't know whether it worked. Luckily, the assistant gave me a sample to take away and try, which I really appreciated, and even asked me to come back and let her know how I got on, whether I liked it or not. That is what I love about the staff in Lush — they're enthusiastic, but I've never felt pushed into buying anything.

Anyway, it turns out that R&B is amaaazing! It's very rich, so you need a teeny amount, but it really has been working wonders for my hair. It smells incredible too — very Christmassy. The ingredients include things like oat milk, extra virgin coconut oil, cold pressed jojoba oil, orange flower absolute and cupuacu butter, and I think the scent may be the jojoba coming through, but I'm not sure. All I know is that I'll be going back for a larger pot when my sample runs out!

Veganese Conditioner is available here and prices start at £4.50 for a 100g bottle.

R&B Hair Moisturiser is available here and prices start at £11.50 for 100g pot.
