I recently did a review of what is probably the most iconic salt spray, the Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray. After I started using a salt spray daily, I started looking around for a more affordable option. I was surprised to see one at Lush! This is a review of the Lush Sea Spray.
(you may have noticed that my recent pictures are a little dark. I was experimenting with lighting in my apartment. I also found that if I edit photos at night, I tend to not compensate enough for the lack of light!)
What it does: (from the Lush UK website)
Get that beach hair look with this salty spray that gives a light hold and adds shine, leaving a neroli, orange flower, grapefruit and rosewood scent. We’ve used carrageenan, a seaweed extract, together with glycerine to hydrate the hair. Mineral-rich fine sea salt gives that volumised, beachy head look, counteracting the flattening effects of soft water and softens the skin on the scalp too.
Price: 9.95 GBP for 100ml (3.3 fluid ounces) in the UK, $12.95 in the US, 1750 JPY in Japan.
Availability: Lush is available in nearly 50 countries. Lush products are also available for purchase online from the Lush UK website, which ships internationally.
Scent: this product smells of rosewood, which I can smell as I spray it into my hair, but not necessarily when in my hair afterwards.
- This is a great alternative to the Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray, which is $27 for 4 fluid ounces
- I found the spray on this bottle to be easier to use than the Bumble and Bumble one.
- As a product, I did not feel that it is different from the Bumble and Bumble product. I get an effortless look with volume when I use this spray!
- Surprisingly, at today’s exchange rate, the product is cheaper in Japan than in the UK.
- The product is still quite expensive in Japan. I’ll have to keep looking for a good homemade salt spray recipe!
Would I repurchase? Yes! I am so glad I found a cheaper alternative to a product I love!
Hope you enjoyed this review!
