Lush Ultimate Shine Shampoo Bar Review
Hey Beauties!
So in all honestly i had no idea shampoo bars were even a thing until i saw them in Lush at the launch of the Buchanan Street Store last year. As i said i hadnt heard about these at all but now a year on i do feel myself going back to them a few times i wouldnt say im a total convert but it do love the Ultimate Shine Shampoo Bar in particular. 
This Shampoo Bar is called Ultimate Shine, which is a big claim but to my surprise it does seem to make your hair really shiny and luscious which is always a good thing because who doesn’t want good hair! Ultimate Shine contains Elemi oil which is the wonder ingredient. It’s good for the scalp because it keeps it balanced and in great condition. Ylang ylang helps to form a beautiful scent and also has a double duty rebalancing the scalp and lifting your mood. Floral violet leaf oil helps to keep away any microbes, leaving you with a clean and cared for head.

As you can see it’s full of great ingredients that are going to help your hair to look and feel great. Since using this i have definitely felt a difference in my hair it’s a lot softer and shiner basically it just looks a lot healthier than it did before.
Ultimate Shine is really easy to use all you need to do is run it under the water then rub between your hands and then into your hair it will start to foam up and once you have covered your hair put the bar down and just work the shampoo into the hair giving it a great clean and rinse, if you need to just repeat and then follow up with your favourite conditioner.
A little tip i would give with using these would be leave them to dry out on a tissue or something because if you put a wet shampoo bar back into its case or a wrapper then it’s going to get stuck to it once it dries (made that mistake with Jason and the Argan Oil and lost half of my shampoo bar)
If you want to keep your shampoo bar all safe and dry that way they will last longer it’s also a great way to travel with them if you need to. You could always buy one of the tins for the bar these are only £2.50 so they are really cheap.
Lush Ultimate Shine Shampoo Bar Review

If you are interested in trying these Shampoo Bars you can get them from any Lush store and you can purchase them online as well here. The Lush Ultimate Shine Shampoo Bar contains around 55g of product for £5.50 so you are getting your money’s worth and will last longer than any shampoo you are using just now i have found that these bars last for at least a few months, I have gotten about 70-80? washes out of one bar 
Have you tried the shampoo bars before?
What’s your favourite one?

  • I see a lot of bloggers/instagrammers in particular slating and trashing products when they didn't see results.

Just because something doesn't work for you it doesn't mean it's a bad product it just means it's not right for you.

Personally I can't use a lot of L-ascorbic acid products because my skin just doesn't get on well with it, this doesn't mean it's a bad product it just doesn't work for me.

I feel like we need to be more objective when talking about products instead of making instant snap decisions.

If a product isn't working for you, ask yourself: how long have you been using it for? Are your expectations realistic? And finally is it your skin that's the problem not the product? .

  • Probably one of my most favourite products ever! 
@pixibeautyuk Glow Tonic was one of the first actives I ever used, I bought a bottle when I was in London with @jaynekitsch years ago when they only had their London store and it honestly changed everything! That's when I became hooked on skincare because of how much i saw my skin change.

I have a review coming out tomorrow for this superstar product, keep an eye out for it ❤️

  • "If you can't pronounce it dont use it"

I see this myth a lot and it really bugs me! It's completely baseless and is created in fear. 
Just because you can't pronounce a chemical name it doesn't mean it's somehow bad for you.

For example Dipeptide Diaminobutyroyl Benzylamide Diacetate sounds scary it's a long name but that's no reason to fear it because it's just a cell communicating ingredient that is often known as "Botox in a bottle" 
Fear is such a pervasive thing in the skincare industry a lot of brands sell their products based on fear and we honestly need to get over this fear and to realise that must because something has a long name we can't pronounce it doesn't mean it's bad for you.

Next time you pick up a product then put it back because it has too many ingredients you can't pronounce just remember that it's all about the formula. You should be objectively thinkkng about the formula instead of jumping to fear every time.

  • *UPDATED SKINCARE ROUTINE*

CLEANSER - @fprescottskin i honestly don't think I'll ever use another cleanser apart from the @dermalogicauk special cleanse when I'm at the gym. I have talked about how much I love Tribalm. It's the best balm cleanser I've ever use not to mention it's so travel friendly too.

TONE - This isn't a toner but I usually this in the place where toner should be. I've been using the new @drdennisgross (*gifted) Resurfacing Liquid Peel for a while and it's pretty awesome. There's no percentage so I'm not sure how strong it is but I use this every other day and the off days I just use the Alpha Beta Peel Pads. 
SERUM - @skinceuticals_uki H.A Intensifier (*gifted) I am absolutely in love with this! While it's on the higher end of the spectrum being quite expensive it's so worth it in my opinion. Instead of being a bog standard hyaluronic acid this serum actually helps to amplify the skins natural hyaluronic acid levels which I find fascinating. It contains high levels of HA as well as Proxylane and purple rice extract.

EYE SERUM - @alphahskincare Absolute Eye Complex (*gifted) this was sent to me a while back and I only just remembered I had it so I thought I'd give it a go. Usually I don't care for eye creams unless they are active because to be it's essentially useless paying for more for a small amount of moisturiser in a tube.

TREATMENT - @paulaschoiceuk
1% clinical strength retinol - this has to be the single strongest over the counter retinol on the market, definitely not for first time use. If there was a otc retinol that I had to choose it would be this one everytime.

MOISTURISER - @stubborncosmetics
Custom Made Moisturiser *gifted - I have said this many times but I'll say it again, I have so much love for this moisturiser it's so good to find something customised to you rather than just hoping something will work.

  • I feel like a lot of the times lactic acid is overlooked in favour of glycolic. Lactic acid can be a massive help to those with dry skin.

First and foremost Lactic acid is an alpha hydroxy acid and unlike glycolic acid, lactic acid works on the surface level to left of any dead skin cells.

I like to compare Lactic acid to Pac man munching away at the dead skin cells. 
Lactic acid is a fantastic moisturising ingredient, it's so good that there's even a prescription product called LacHydrin (12% lactic acid) that is used to hydrate chronically dry skin.

My favourite lactic acid used to be @sundayriley Good Genes but since they have reformulated it to be glycolic now I'm on the hunt for a new version. I had heard that @deciem does a really good 5% and 10% Lactic acid that I need to revisit.

  • Everyone knows that I love pixi, Glow Tonic has to be one of my all time favourite products simply because it's so effective ❤️ I was recently sent a bunch of new pixi products to try and DetoxifEYE Depuffing Eye Patches were apart of that package and I wanted to talk about them.

While I hate the name of the product because no matter what anyone ever tells you you can't detoxify the skin by using a topical product it just isn't possible the role of detoxifing goes to the kidneys and not the skin. 
Despite the god awful name, the product is actually pretty good. They do a good job of depuffing the eyes.

Each patch is made from hydrogel and doesn't slip down your face so you don't have to walk around face up to the sky haha

The main component of these patches is caffeine which is a vasoconstrictor that tightens the skin getting rid of the puffiness temporarily.

The patches also say they contain gold but I'm not even going to entertain that as one of the ingredients because gold does nothing for the skin topically despite many brands trying to convince you otherwise.

I tend to use these in the PM before bed but you can use them in the morning before you apply your makeup .
