LUSH Jumping Juniper shampoo bar review
I just can't quit LUSH shampoo bars. How could I? They're so sudsy, fragrant, and cleansing. Perhaps you already know of my obsession. (I was tickled when Liz of Beauty Reductionista mentioned that she thinks of me when she sees them!) My long-time favorite is LUSH Seanik, the salty blue volumizing shampoo bar (reviewed here). After wearing my current bar down to a nubbin, I decided it was time to get a new one. This time, instead of buying Seanik for the fifth time in a row, I branched out and tried LUSH Jumping Juniper.
The LUSH Jumping Juniper bar has a really nice fruity lavender scent to compliment its lavender color. Every bar has a sprig embedded in it. Lavender is one of my favorite garden flowers; my apartment complex had some growing in the common area this year (see above). LUSH Jumping Juniper washes away oil and balances your scalp. Juniper berry helps cut out the oil, lemon and lime add shine, rosemary is antibacterial, and lavender balances and soothes the scalp. When used in a hot shower, the beautiful fresh citrus scents in Jumping Juniper become evident. The shampoo suds up well and thoroughly cleans my hair. My hair felt a little less dry than with Seanik. I think this is because Jumping Juniper is more 'balancing' and lacks the salt found in Seanik. I think this will make sense for me in the winter months when I'm going for a less beach-y hair look.
It's love. I'm already worrying about which LUSH shampoo bar I'll repurchase the next time around: Jumping Jumpier or Seanik? Good thing it'll be a couple months before I have to decide again. Thanks for reading! Have you tried any LUSH shampoo bars? Have you tried any LUSH recently?
