Advantages: Smells amazing, high quality, ethical.
Disadvantages: Might be too expensive for some.
First impression you have the same Lush bottle that you find across the entire range which I personally really like it has the black label with white writing and the logo across the top again in the same way that all the bottled products are labelled.
One thing you find on the lush bottles which I really like are the small round stickers which has a drawing of whoever it was which created the product you're buying and also there name written underneath. I just think this adds a nice personal touch to the product and knowing they made it rather than it being massed produce by machine is also reassuring.
I got the biggest bottle available but it comes in 3 different sizes but you will notice you make quite a reasonable saving the more you buy.
100g - £4.75
250g - £9.50
500g - £15.50
Obviously you'll notice looking at the price that it's quite pricey especially if you're comparing to cheaper options you may pick up in the supermarket. But for me there's a number of different reasons I will always pay the extra for Lush products =
Knowing exactly what's in your products as everything they use has a natural source and using the website you can see what's in and even more in-depth information about the individual ingredients.
Here's the ingredients from the Lush site -
Natural ingredients are:
Water, Lemon Oil, Freshly Juiced Papaya, Fine Sea Salt, Carrageenan Extract, Sweet Orange Oil, Fresh Pineapple Juice, Fresh Kiwi Juice, Fresh Mango Juice, *Citral, *Limonene, Benzyl Alcohol,
Sodium Alkyl Sulfate, Ammonium Laureth Sulphate, Cocamide MEA, Propylene Glycol, Perfume, Methylparaben, Propylparaben
All the packaging is recycled and is fully recyclable you can also take in your empty Lush pots and bottle tops and for 5 black pots they will reward you with a face mask which would usually come at a cost of £5.75 (they're amazing as well).
Absolutely no animal testing and all the products are sourced in the most ethical way and Lush employees are actually sent to inspect that everything is living up to the high standards (and rightfully so) that they have set.
Also could be included in here as it is a big plus for me is that a lot of the products including this one are made from completely Vegan ingredients which cannot be said for a huge amount of the other alternatives on the market.
Great quality products everything has been made using fresh ingredients and also natural ingredients meaning it's very good for your skin especially if you can sometimes suffer from irritation with the chemicals in other products.
(the above text is slightly edited as it is relevant across all my Lush reviews)
The colour of the actual shampoo is cloudy yellow obviously most of the colour will come from the crushed up fruits they put inside most notable pineapple as it does resemble pineapple juice in colour.
Smelling it in the bottle you can strongly smell the presence of the pineapple and mango and it smells amazing and fresh so much so that you would think you could drink it as there's no hint of any sort of chemicals like you get with other shampoo.
When you put the shampoo on your hair and lather it up it just releases the strong fruity smell and like much of the Lush products it has that effect of reminding you of summer and for me especially it always makes me feel a bit more cheerful especially with the typically dull UK weather.
Once dried the pineapple smell especially rests really well on your hair I often find if I have a bath or shower late at night the following morning I still have a really good scent of the pineapple.
I know it's not very relevant to how well it works on your hair but something that always gets a comment from the other people living with me is after you've used this the smell hangs around across the whole of my flat for a good while after using it which is never unwelcome.
The shampoo in terms of how much you need to use is fantastic I have hair which is just past shoulder length and loads of it so it takes quite a lot of shampoo to get my whole head covered well however with this shampoo I can use a tiny amount and after just a few scrubs it's foamed up and covered my whole head completely. For a Vegan shampoo especially this is fantastic because I tried the Superdrug Shampoo and Conditioner which uses fruit etc as well and I found that I would need a handful just to get a full cover on my head meaning I would go through a bottle in just over a week.
After drying my hair feels fantastic and clean and like I mentioned earlier it smells fantastic and the smell holds for roughly 24 hours minimum.
Something to consider because Lush don't often have lines of products I would definitely recommend using this in conjunction with Veganese Conditioner and Happy Hippy Shower Gel as they all contain sweet smelling fruits (pineapple, lemon, citrus and grapefruit). I have already reviewed Veganese and Happy Hippy will be my next review if you want to look at them and compare.
Overall I would recommend this to anyone and it's especially great if you're looking for high quality Vegan toiletries. Although the price is high it's definitely worth it for what you get and it's also a very long lasting shampoo.
Summary: Lush don't disappoint with this amazing smelling shampoo.
