Welcome to a brand new blog post! I thought that today, I would talk to you all about a cool conditioner from Lush that I have been using for a while now.
List Of Ingredients:
Water (Aqua) Chickpea Cream Cetearyl Alcohol Ethyl Macadamiate Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil Perfume Propylene Glycol Behentrimonium chloride Fresh Grapefruit Juice Titanium Dioxide Butyl Methoxydibenzoylmethane Rose Absolute Rose Oil Geranium Oil Sicilian Lemon Oil Aquafaba Hydrolyzed Wheat Gluten Arginine HCL Lysine HCL Polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP) Cetrimonium Chloride Phenoxyethanol Benzyl Alcohol Citronellol Coumarin Geraniol *Limonene Colour 17200 Colour 45410:2]
Let's start with the scent of the product. If you're a big fan of Lush, then you will know that most products that contain Rose Absolute, Rose Oil and Sicilian Lemon Oil, make up the very well known Rose Jam scent, and this product is no different. If you're not a big fan of Lush, then imagine a bright yet quite sweet Rose scent, Not too florally with almost slight berry notes to it compared to the light sort of Rose that you might know that normal has powdery notes to it. This conditioner has that scent to it. However, when I smell it through the lid, I almost get a slight sort of plastic smell to it before any of the Rose scent comes through. This may be due to the Chickpea Cream mixing with everything else, or the Wheat Gluten, I'm not sure but it goes away as soon as you apply it to your hair. The scent does also last a long time post using the product, as I could smell it in my hair for the next two days!]
The texture of the Valkyrie when squeezing it out of the bottle, is quite thick. Thick to the point that it takes a good amount of squeezing to get any product out. However, when you apply water to this conditioner, Valkyrie becomes a luxurious sort of serum in my opinion. I guess, kind of like the new Shower Gel formula in kind of a way. Even though, it may not feel like there is much in your hair due to the lightness of the formula, you definitely know that its doing something to your hair, as soon as the scent hits your nose!
As I bleach and dye my hair a mixture of three different shades of Pink, I knew that I needed something that could sort my hair out. As soon as I saw this product on Lush UK's website, I knew that I had to try it to see if it would save my hair from total destruction. I normally do my hair on a night and then leave it to air dry. When I woke up after using Valkyrie the night before, my hair felt amazing. It felt a mixture of thick, shiny and healthy, which was a miracle for someone who has been slowly killing their hair to feel and look fabulous. I do try to not use this all the time, as I think that if I did then personally it might make me hate any and every product that contains Rose for the near future, so I use this once a week which is more than enough for me, as I use American Cream and sometimes Candy Rain as more as everyday conditioners. (I may do reviews on them within the future.)
Overall, I would give this a 9.5/10. My only problem is that it is an exclusive to Liverpool Spa, therefore, you have to either make a online order or make a trip to Lush Liverpool Spa to try it. If it was in all stores then I would buy it for the rest of my lifetime!
