I have just reviewed the Lush ‘Big’ Shampoo and mentioned that I used this along with Godiva, and I thought it was about time I reviewed Godiva as I have been using it now for around 3 months so have had enough experience with it to give you my opinion.
What made me try Godiva were its good reviews. It seemed to be a good shampoo bar for long hair which needs a little extra care and was advertised as a 2 in 1 shampoo and conditioner bar. I thought this would be ideal to take on holiday to save me space and weight in taking a separate conditioner. I thought it would be best to give a bar a try before I went away to check to see if it was adequate for my needs when I’m away. So I bought the Godiva a few months ago and have shelved my Jumping Juniper just for now to give Godiva a good chance.
The Godiva bar is part of Lush’s range of solid shampoo bars. They have a range of around 10 different solid shampoos’ that tackle many issues we may have with our hair. These shampoo bars are usually around 55g and are often small disc shapes. Godiva is aimed to be a more conditioning bar for long or dry hair in particular. The bar includes some conditioner meaning it is essentially 2 in 1. The Godiva bar is a sunshine yellow colour and looks like it’s made up of hundreds and thousands when you first look at it. You will also see lumps of coca butter in there as well. It is a pretty bar and looks great in your bathroom and left in the open will make you bathroom smell of coconut and macadamia. The Bar is designed to last around 80 washes and by being solid is kinder on the environment. This shampoo bar is priced at £6.00, so really is great value for money.
The Godiva bar contains a number of natural ingredients that work together to create this shampoo, these include:-
All of these ingredients are aimed at conditioning the hair and scalp leaving both feeling nourished. It does this without making your hair and scalp greasy which is surprising when you consider all the moisturising ingredients it has. These ingredients also make the shampoo smell great and it has the same fragrance as the Flying Fox Shower Gel Lush. The lovely fragrance of the shampoo will last for a good few hours on your dry hair which makes you want to swish your locks around
The shampoo is very easy to use, and you simply rub the bar straight onto your hair or in your palms to work up a lather. The shampoo lathers up quickly and easily, and this lather is quite foamy but still creamy. Then you apply to your hair, massage in and then rinse. I found no need to repeat these directions as I may have done with other shampoos as, as soon as you rinse the shampoo out you hair feels really clean. The Godiva rinses out easily and even when your hair is damp you can feel that the Godiva has worked its magic. When your hair is dry fully I can always instantly see some results. My hair looks conditioned, bright and shiny! The bar is made for those who need a little extra care, so is ideal for longer or dryer hair as it feels like its treating the hair more than the other shampoo bars I have used.
Summary This shampoo bar has become one of my favourites; it is a nice looking bar that smells divine. If you leave it in your bathroom it’ll soon fill the whole room with it Jasmine scent. It is easy and convenient to use, lather quickly and cleans hair. Results wise it makes you hair feel very clean but conditioned and smelling fab! The added benefit of a conditioner is just about enough to leave you hair feeling ok, but I would recommend still using a separate conditioner on dry hair. The shampoo bar is reasonably priced and will easily last around 80 washes
