If it’s extra volume you’re after, then ‘Big’ is a brilliant choice for you. I’ve tried this particular product and loved it! It leaves your hair feeling notably softer and smells great too. Despite its appearance giving the impression that you may be left smelling like you’ve been drenched in seaweed and salty water, the producers at Lush have added neroli, mandarin, orange flower absolute and vanilla fragrances to leave you smelling just as fresh as you would have, had you used any other branded product.

Lush even offer a shampoo to help alleviate the chances of blonde or white hair becoming more yellow, ‘Daddy-O’, which also boasts essential oils to keep hair looking and feeling soft and vibrant

If it’s a skin quick fix you’re after, Lush offer some great face masks to give your skin that last minute lift. For added smoothness ready for a night out try ‘Ayesha’, the perfect solution to winter weathering effects on your skin.
