Does anyone use these? A sales assistant in Lush the other day told me they are really good for your scalp and economical to use. I don't care for bars of soap on the sink side so I'm not sure how I'd get on with a shampoo bar.
I use Godiva, it is a combined shampoo/conditioner and it leaves my hair at least as nice as most separate ones I've tried (very shiny), saves time AND smells divine.
Top tip - empty Steamcream moisturiser tins fit Lush shampoo bars better than their own tins (I find the Lush tins are often a bit small for new shampoo bars and bits get crumbled off the edges), they look nicer AND are much easier to open with wet hands as they unscrew. If I use the Lush tins I always have to remember to open them before I start showering, or leave them slightly open.
Don't let it get too wet though, DH saturated one of mine on holiday and it all dissolved! So no leaving them on the floor of the shower.
I use the Karma one, it smells gorgeous. You can get little metal tins to keep them in and it lasts for ages - unless you forget to put it away and someone else has a shower. They used to do a 'Hard' and 'Soft' solid bar for hard or soft water - I live in a very hard water area and used the Hard bar about every three or four washes and the Karma the rest of the time. They discontinued Hard several years ago and I bought up a stock of them - I still have one left which I use every so often - I'll really miss it when it's finished.
Haven't tried them, but tried the body butter moisturiser bar this week. It s fab really lovely and skin felt lovely and soft afterwards - but it melted really quickly and I d guess it would only last a few uses. Might try the shampoo bars
