Lush Happy Hippy Hair and Body Gel Review

Hello pretty ladies!

I bought a shampoo and conditioner from the Lush online store, a few months back, and received this as a free sample! It was a pleasant surprise (freebies are always welcome :P ).

Lush+Happy+Hippy+Hair+and+Body+Gel+Review

Price:

Rs. 380 for 100 gm.

Shelf Life:

1 year.

Ingredients:

Water (Aqua), Fresh Pink Grapefruit Juice (Citrus paradisi), Grapefruit Water (Citrus paradisi), Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Sodium Cocoamphoacetate, Lauryl Betaine, Propylene Glycol, Grapefruit Oil (Citrus paradisi), Bergamot Oil (Citrus Aurantiumbergamia), Frankincense Oil (Boswelliacarterii), Lactic Acid, Limonene, Perfume, Methylparaben.

Ingredients Shower Gel

Product Claims:

The smiley and revitalizing grapefruit one. Our pink grapefruit shower gel is a magic potion to make the office seem inviting and dreary Monday mornings. It’s made with fresh, organic pink grapefruits. These vary in colour, so your new bottle of Happy Hippy may have a slightly different lemon-to-rosy hue from the previous one you bought.

My Experience with Lush Happy Hippy Hair and Body Gel:

I love fresh citrus fragrances! This one, right here transports me to some fruit orchard with yummy zesty scent of grapefruits! It gives me this burst of freshness early in the morning during shower and wakes me up!

This is the first shower gel I have tried from Lush, and it hasn’t disappointed. It’s perfect for those summer months, and after workout showers, which washes off all the grub and pleases the senses at the same time.

Shower Gel

The downside is, the scent hardly lingers on my skin. Within 15-30 minutes of shower, the scent disappears (it stays in my bathroom much longer actually!)

The packaging is convenient and sturdy and the flip top cap makes it easy to take out the required amount of shower gel without any wastage. The gel is more or less yellowish to transparent and quite thick in consistency and I have to shake and squeeze the bottle in order to get it out. It doesn’t lather much, which I don’t mind, although it means that it will run out sooner than other shower gels I have.

Hair and Body Gel

Pros of Lush Happy Hippy Hair and Body Gel:

  • Fresh, strong citrus scent which will be a hit with all citrus lovers.
  • Contains real grapefruit extracts.
  • Sturdy packaging with minimal risk of spillage.
  • Vegan and not tested on animals.

Cons of Lush Happy Hippy Hair and Body Gel:

  • Contains parabens.
  • Finishes quickly because it lathers less.
  • The grapefruit scent hardly lingers on the skin after shower.

Do I Recommend Lush Happy Hippy Hair and Body Gel?

Yes, I do! If you like crispy citrus scent, give this a shot.

Will I Repurchase Lush Happy Hippy Hair and Body Gel?

Yes, I am almost done with my first bottle, and definitely planning to buy another one, since it perks up my mood in a jiffy.

actually sharon, the products that lather much, contain more SLS i think…which might dry out the skin..so i don’t mind the reduced lather in this case :)
