Lush Review: Lush-ious hair combo!

Finding the perfect shampoo for my hair is kinda like trying to find a real life unicorn – non existent (heartbreak). My hair is oily and limp, a total nightmare, especially in summer!

However, it seems that the talented people over at Lush Cosmetics may have come through with the goods. I have made a new discovery and I’m completely in love, it has also restored my faith that maybe unicorns really do exist!

Big Shampoo

Enter, the Big Shampoo, which according to the Lush website is designed ‘to make you feel like a mermaid’ – so what’s not to love? It’s a volumising shampoo made with sea salt and seaweed to give your hair that extra ‘oomph’ it needs. Here’s what the Lush description says:

‘While the salt lifts the hair and adds body, it also softens the hair alongside extra virgin coconut oil and protein-rich toothed wrack seaweed. Lemon and lime allow the hair to shine as they allow the cuticles on your hair to lie flat, meaning they reflect more light.’

Big Shampoo Open

I totally concur! This stuff is unreal! As you can see it’s a thick and chunky consistency which is something I have never seen in a shampoo before. It did take me a couple of goes to work out the perfect way to use it, but now that I have I am completely swooning over it.

My hair feels thick, voluminious and super clean, I’m talkin’ squeaky clean. I’m also finding that my hair lasts longer in between washes, which is the main goal that I’m searching for in a shampoo. The smell is pretty much to die for (yep, it gets better), it has a lingering scent that leaves me smelling like a total beach babe.

R&B Hair Moisturizer Open

I also decided to pick up the R&B Hair Moisturiser, for the ends of my hair, which are much more dry than my roots. This is a rich blend of oils and butters which helps to restore and hydrate the hair as much as possible. I use smaller than a 5p sized amount on my ends and it seriously works an absolute treat. It makes my hair feel super thick and even stops it from getting tangled.

I would also say that this almost acts as a hair perfume, as the scent really lasts and stays in my hair until I next wash it. People have even complimented the scent, asking me what perfume I am wearing, even when I haven’t been wearing any!

So, I am completely and utterly 100% committed to these two products, I am literally overjoyed with how phenomenally they have worked for my hopeless locks. I think I may need to try a Lush conditioner next to complete my hair routine!

What Lush hair products have you tried?



The Perfect Summer Base!

Every Summer I find myself searching for the perfect makeup base. I much prefer the idea of a tinted moisturiser or a BB cream but some of them just don’t cut it in the coverage department. However, I’ve only gone and done it haven’t I… I’ve found the perfect summer base!


MAC Lightful C Tinted Cream SPF 30 £25.50 is a little gem, sent from heaven! It’s so much more than a tinted cream, this little baby is packed full of skin benefits.

  • It’s a correcting cream that reduces imperfections while increasing the natural radiance of your skin instantly and over time (hells yeah!)
  • Infused with a Lightful Radiance Booster and vitamin C, which works to correct your overall complexion by reducing the appearance of pores and diminishing dark spots and hyper-pigmentation
  • SPF 30 protects against UVA/UVB rays


The consistency is quite thick however it’s much more of a sheer coverage than other MAC foundations. Despite the sheer coverage I felt like this covered imperfections really well and definitely evens the skin tone out, as promised!

My pores were well hidden and I must say my skin looked pretty damn radiant. As for diminishing dark spots, I can’t comment as I have only had the product for 1 week. However I feel confident that my skin is really going to reap the benefits of this new little life saver.

It’s gorgeously light on the skin and really makes you feel like you aren’t wearing anything, whilst looking pretty flawless, so this is a total win in my books! I went for the ‘Light Plus’ shade, to match my NW20 skin and it’s the perfect colour.


I will admit this isn’t a base that I would wear on a night out or a special occasion but it really is the perfect everyday summer base. If you’re looking for a ‘my skin but better’ look then this is the one for you!
