A little while ago, when partaking in a Comment Thread, I came across Dainty Alice; first, this blog had posted about a Lush Haul (click here) which I commented on. But a back link had my interest; a review of American Cream Conditioner. (Click here to view.) I have problematic skin on my scalp, meaning that I’ve used Tgel (the rather smelly equivalent) for a number of years-so, needless to say, I was very much intrigued.
As a disclaimer, I would like to add that I bought this product myself, and I don’t really shop at Lush. (Although some view it as a cult beauty shop, it’s just not something for me.)
As with virtually all other Lush products, I think that the packaging went well with all the other products in its shop. (It was seemingly kept to a uniformed basis.) I also like the description-as it made me laugh: “Bring all the boys to the yard…” Not sure I would really want to though! I do however think it could have been a little less costly; this bottle is tiny, and 100 grams is £5.45. But, yeah, I decided to treat myself…
You can’t really smell what’s in the bottle; just to test it, I also smelt it directly. (That sentence sounds very odd!) It did smell like milkshakes, but not very strongly; the more you rub it into your scalp, the more strongly it begins to smell. so, not overly smelly, and not to strong… Perfect!
Putting it to use:
Next time I purchase this, I will probably go for a larger bottle; this was so tiny that it was often hard to use. There also wasn’t as much as I would have liked in the bottle; besides, better value for money, right?
For the first time I used it, I was glad in that my head stopped being so itchy; my skin wasn’t so inflamed, and my skin not as flaky. However, my hair took ages to dry; I woke up the next day, and it was still very damp. I also noticed that it played havoc with my fringe; I think it was however because I used too much of this product. What I did like though was that my hair was a lot curlier; it had more definition, and therefore was not enveloped in a fuzz that would have resulted otherwise.
What can I say? I think I am a convert. This has virtually solved my skincare problems. Have you ever tried American Cream? If yes, what do you think?
