Today I'm going to be talking about Lush's Fair Trade Honey Shampoo! I was given this little pot of golden goodness when I purchased a full size of Angels on Bare Skin, and I thought I'd give it a quick First Impression review since I don't have much luck with Lush's hair care range usually!
What Is It?
Fairly Traded Honey Shampoo
"Over half of this shampoo consists of Fairly Traded honey, which is beautifully moisturizing and gives hair shine and luster. All that honey has allowed us to make this one preservative-free, too! While 50% is honey, 20% is linseed mucilage, which has a lovely texture and is moisturizing and conditioning. Fairly Traded Honey is suitable for almost everyone, but with all these moisturizing ingredients, it is specifically lovely on hair in need of moisture

It has the scent and appearance of a quite thin honey (since it contains 50% honey!) but it's quite a heavy and sweet scent. This may sound like a no-brainer, but if you don't like the smell of honey, stay away from this shampoo because, like every Lush shower item I've tried, it will leave a lingering scent on everything, including your shower, towels, pillows and clothes.
I find that this shampoo works really well for my hair, it lathers well and it gave me a really good deep clean without leaving my hair feeling stripped or dry. I quite like the smell while I'm doing my hair, although I dislike sniffing it straight from the pot because it's so potent!
Would I Purchase This Product?Yes! I really liked using this shampoo, and at $36.90NZD for 500g it's a reasonably priced product since you don't really need to use too much. I quite like the honey scent, and it keeps my hair looking heavy or greasy! This is being added to the list of LUSH products that I would be happy to recommend to my friends! ^. ~
