Product Review: Lush Happy Hippy Hair and Body Gel

I get a lot of questions and comments from readers who love Lush, the British bath and body brand that incorporates fresh fruits and natural ingredients into its handmade products. I run hot and cold on Lush — I like the concept, but some of its soaps are just too fragrant.

However, I recently tried some Lush Happy Hippy Hair and Body Gel, and it will be a very handy addition to my beauty arsenal. The Happy Hippy bottle calls this a "hair and body" gel, which intrigued me, so



I thought: If I can find a soap that works as a shampoo too, that's one less bottle to pack on vacation. And Happy Hippy really does do double duty. The gel works into an incredibly thick lather that fills your shower with an invigorating grapefruit scent that's neither too overpowering nor too girly. Using it didn't feel like bathing in shampoo, and my hair got just a clean as it normally would with a proper hair product.

I wouldn't say the Happy Hippy totally wowed me, but it's a wonderfully scented and very serviceable product. The gel is available in a 3.3-ounce bottle ($8.50), an 8.4-ounce bottle ($15.95), and a 16.9-ounce bottle ($24.95).

bookgirl: Exactly! I always bring my multitasking lush products on vacation! I used "Flying Fox", as I stated above, when I had to go on a church retreat. The jasmine scent is intoxicating.

This seems like a good product to take on vacation...one less bottle (and a small one at that) to pack. I'll try it!

I really enjoy Lush, but it could be because I don't get their products very often, so there isn't that risk of overkill. There isn't a store anywhere near me, so I have to order online, which means I don't order very often. I am intrigued by this product, and one less bottle to pack is a good thing.

i heart lush! but i cant quite say i have just one fave product. i love their butter bars or whatever they are called. buffy the backside slayer, aqua mirabilas etc. as for hair care? my brothers like the solid shampoos. (plus i think shorter hair is prolly better for that) but im a bumble and bumble girl all the way!

the lush in my mall is always EMPTY. then again so is missha, and missha is so amazing. hm. i might get it, but how long do you think 3.3 ounces would last? three weeks?

You know what? I LOVED Lush when I first discovered in it London and then I just got so sick of that definitive Lush smell in every store. I think I od'd on it. No more Lush for Fab. :( xo
