Lush - Ultimate Shine Shampoo Bar Review

I've been meaning to post this for a loongg time, so I'm finally making myself do it! If you have been following my blog for a while you will now that this is my third shampoo bar. I have a review for Jumping Juniper if you click here, and a review for Karma Komba if you click here. I really wasn't sure which bar to go for next, so after a look at the website and seeing that this was one of their most popular, I decided to go for it.

It's quite a nice looking shampoo bar, it's white with little flecks of glitter in it (which you can see if you look closely at the photograph). I also love the scent, it's very refreshing and has a bit of citrus to it.

If you haven't used one of these shampoo bars before, they're super easy! Just use it like a bar of soap and rub it into your head. I usually give a rub or two at the top, the back, and above both my ears. You think you haven't used enough until you start to massage it into your head and there is loads of lather so don't be fooled! Then simply rinse it out as you would any other shampoo.

Did it work? Yes it did. I am a huge fan of the shampoo bars and sing their praises to anyone who listens. They last around 3 months, and do a really good job. This one gives a good wash of my hair, making it feel squeaky clean. However, I'm not too sure if my hair looks extra shiny? It looks pretty normal to me so I don't think that part of it is working, but everything else is!

Pros :

  • Inexpensive at only £5.25 (although it was £5 when I purchased mine)
  • Lasts approximately 3 months, which is why the price is so good.
  • Equivalent to 3 x 200ml bottles
  • Lightweight, perfect for travelling
  • Lovely scent
  • Leaves a lovely clean, feeling
Cons :

  • I don't think it made me hair any more shiny than it already is.
Overall yes, I liked this product. Would I purchase it again? No, probably not. I have absolutely nothing against this product, but I love the other two I've used so much because they have such gorgeous scents, that this one just comes behind them.

Have you used the Lush solid shampoo bars before? If so, what's your favourite? I'm always looking for which one I should purchase next!
