Review: Lush R&B Revive & Balance Hair Moisturizer

Review: Lush R&B Revive & Balance Hair Moisturizer

Lush R&B hair moisturizer is a leave-in conditioner/moisturizer geared toward those of Black decent and/or those with curly hair.


  • Oatmilk (Avena sativa), Glycerine, Organic Avocado Butter (Persea gratissima), Fair Trade Olive Oil (Olea europaea),

  • Glycerl Stearate & Peg - 100 Stearate, Perfume, Cetearyl Alcohol, Extra Virgin Coconut Oil (Cocos nucifera),

    *Farnesol, *Limonene, *Linalool

    R&B hair Moisturizer has a thick, creamy, butter like consistency and a somewhat heavy floral scent, which is great if that appeals to you. This scent could also be considered overwhelming if you are sensitive to certain smells. That being said, it's a great moisturizer it can be used on wet or dry hair. The first time I used R&B, was in the winter, Initially I wasn't pleased due to the fact that my hair was somewhat dry, and I wasn't pleased with the overall "feel" of my curls after applying the product. I tried it once again in July, and surprisingly it had a completely different result! Upon using R&B in July, I did notice that my hair was noticeably softer, smoother, and completely moisturized. I would recommend this product to those who live in a consistently warmer climate. For those who tend to live in a colder climate, I would suggest that you add this to your summer beauty routine only.

    Note: If you are unsure as to whether your hair likes or dislikes glycerin, ask for a sample of the product first. This product tends to be on the pricey side considering it's $20.00 for only 3.5 oz!

    Pros: Nice smell, moisturizing, nice consistency, good ingredients.

    Cons: Price/size ratio, different results depending on the season.

    Will I repurchase ? : Yes, but only for summer.

    Overall Grade: B
