Product Review : R and B from Lush

So this is a quick one folks. I'm well aware that at the moment my blog seems to have no rhyme or reason to it, so I'm thinking of doing a series of how to videos/posts e.g. hair washing, styles, combing etc What do you think?What do you want to know that I could give advice/thoughts on? Comment/ facebook me and lemme know..
For now, product of the week: ( Drumrolll pleeeaassee..)

Rand B from Lush!!!!

This is a lovely smelling yellow cream designed initially, I believe, for curly/afro hair, but apparently good for all hair types (I personally think it would be too greasy if your hair isn't curly..but whatever). The scent is primarily jasmine and orange blossom, which is a downside if you don't like the smell, because it does have a tendency to linger. Glycerin is high up on the ingredient list, so if you live somewhere with low humidity, this might not be for you (I'll do a post on glycerin and humidity soon). The ingredients are 90% natural with lovely things like: Jojoba oil, Coconut oil, Cupuacu butter and Avocado Butter.


  • Very Moisturising
  • A little goes a long way 
  • Lovely (in my opinion) smell
  • Full of organic natural ingredients, no silicones, mineral oil, petroleum or parabens.
  • Fair  Trade :-)
  • Made by a company with a great ethical policy
  • Vegan (if you're a total vegan that won't use animal products in cosmetics)
  • Quite strong smell (so if you hate it, you'll really hate it)
  • PRICEY PRICEY! £ pot was a present from the mother. *faints*. For the size, they're pushing it a wee bit, just a wee bit. It is all organic-y and eco-ey and that fair trade trendy stuff everyone's into though.
  • Can be a bit greasy if you're too heavy handed.(I don't like to feel grease on my hands when I touch my hair)
  • Why did they have to call the product for afro hair R and B? Subtle guys, real subtle....
Overall it gets a nice 4/5 from me! *pats Lush on the back* Good show chaps...

Peace, Love and hair grease my lovelies! xx

  1. lol! Love it Shadey! I've been tempted to buy it but there is something about Lush that rubs me the wrong way....something is in their products that I don't like-wait let me find out what it is-Phenoxyethanol. I've been researching about this and I don't know what to think....What do you think? Check out the link.
