I picked up Love Beauty and Planet Blooming Colour Shampoo and Conditioner in Asda when I went shopping last month. I had been looking for a new shampoo and conditioner to replace the ones that I had just finished using, and while I am a huge lover of Lush Godiva shampoo I knew that I wouldn’t be going anywhere near a Lush store soon.
The shampoo and conditioner by Love Beauty and Planet usually retail for £7.50 each but were on rollback when I spotted them, at £4.00 per bottle. Each bottle holds 400ml which is a fair amount of product even if you were to pay the full amount!
The bottles themselves are straightforward bottles with black push down lids. The label is what caught my eye – the label shows pink roses with a rectangle in the middle where the “Love Beauty and Planet” wording is placed. The rectangle is pink on the shampoo and white on the conditioner, there are a few other differences but I’ll let you try and spot them in the photos!
There are a few different formulas to choose from
· Blooming Colour – Rose and Muru Muru Butter
· Volume and Bounty – Coconut Water and Mimosa Flower
· Happy and Hydrated – Shea Butter and Sandalwood
· Hope and Repair – Coconut Oil and Ylang Ylang
· Delightful Detox – Rosemary and Vetiver
These come as shampoo and conditioner though there are other products in the range, dry shampoo and hair masque in other scents.
I have been making a conscious effort to change my buying habits and become more aware of what I am buying. This product is packaged in 100% recycled and recyclable packaging, the products are vegan, organic, ethically sourced, paraben, silicone, and colourant free, the company is trying to keep its carbon footprint as low as possible…so it ticks a lot of boxes for me.
The shampoo is rich and lathers easily; a little goes a long way and is easy to work through the hair. It rinses out easily. The conditioner is creamy and slightly thicker in viscosity than normal conditioner, which makes it feel luxurious, and a treat to use. It speads through the hair easily and rinses out fast too with no nasty residue feeling.
My hair was soft and easy to manage straight after washing, through the drying process and even in the days after, my hair seemed to be tangle-free and soft feeling!
The scent is lovely, as I had chosen the Blooming Colour shampoo and conditioner, which had extracts of rose and muru muru butter, the scent was full of roses. I would liken the scent to a walk around a rose garden in the evening after a hot summer day, and it lasted until the next wash!
I can say, hand on heart, that these products delivered everything I could have wanted and more! I will definitely be buying these again!
