Generally, I really like Lush products and so far, my Lush reviews and mentions on this blog have been very positive. Sadly, no brand is perfect and I think there's always going to be dud products and sadly, Lush Retread, seems to be one of them. Described as the perfect partner for their Rehab Shampoo designed for hair which is badly in need of some loving care, I figured this was right up my street. When I saw this in a blog sale for a lovely cheap price, I decided I had to snap it up.
First impressions were good, it smells very lovely. It's a familiar smell but I can't quite put my finger on what it reminds me of, but I like it. It seemed to be a nice consistency too, not too thick or too thin although it does lean more on the watery side than anything. Although I'm not a fan of tubs, I have too many to call them an issue and the product itself was easy enough to apply.
Sadly, I just wasn't wowed by this at all. While it left my hair quite soft, it was nothing incredible and my hair wasn't as detangled as it normally is after conditioner. I certainly saw no long term benefits from using this and once I'd used it up and moved on to a different conditioner, my hair was noticeably softer and shinier. Overall then, I'm glad I got this from a blog sale and didn't pay full price for it! Not one I'd recommend or repurchase I'm afraid.
