Lush Superbalm Scalp Treatment

Another item from my Lush haul, I have never seen this on my trips to the store so I can only presume it is relatively new.  It was situated pretty close the the Soap and Float Shampoo bar, and what it claims is pretty intriguing and perfect for me!!

What it says on the tin:
Is it a bird?  Is it a plane?  No, its Superbalm!  A super hero blend of ingredients to rescue scalps from scale build up.  If you've got scale that no shampoo has managed to banish, then try this balm packed with super power ingredients to rid you of the pesky menace.

And it pretty much does what it says on the tin!!  I have used this about three times, and it really does work.  I used before each time I washed my hair to begin with, though I am only applying it before every other wash now as I feel it is all I need.  You can also apply the night before to give it plenty of time to work overnight.  you only need a small amount for it to be effective and I don't apply all over, only to the areas which are usually itchy.

Touch wood, I don't actually have crazy scalp build up like I used to, though this is a nice product to have as a rescue remedy should it ever come back with a vengeance.

Its ingredients include extra virgin coconut oil, salicylic acid, rose wax, lavender oil and chamomile blue oil, making it really soothing for the scalp and stops me from itching it.

The wax itself is quite hard to begin with, though the top softens as you break it in.  Also with the tin being metal, if you hold it for a few minutes beforehand, it seems to warm up and soften, making it easier to get out the tin.  the one thing I will say about this product, it is a little hard work to actually get it on your scalp rather than your hair, other than that, it is pretty brilliant!!


  1. I had a small version of this in a Lush gift set once, and I loved it too! Did you know you can also put it on dry areas of your skin as well? I loved it for my elbows, knees, or my hand as a night treatment! xxx

    1. Really, I didn't know you could use it on other areas of the skin too!! Though I did see another product in the same tine called 'Ultrabalm' Like a Vaseline type substance but nicer, must purchase that in the future too!!
