LUSH Cynthia Sylvia Stout Shampoo

With today being St. Patrick's Day, I can't think of a better time to review this bottle of Cynthia Sylvia Stout Shampoo which I received from LUSH Cosmetics. I mean, we're talking about beer shampoo here!

This pub-inspired shampoo is made with organic vegan stout beer, cognac, balsamic vinegar, and lemons (the people at LUSH are clearly not strangers to odd combinations). It smells kind of earthy to me and to be honest, I don't like the scent at all. Thankfully it's not as strong once on the hair.

Although this shampoo is formulated for all hair types, LUSH claims it's especially good for those with hair that tends to go frizzy in damp or humid environments. My hair's kind of the opposite (it gets flatter and flatter throughout the day as opposed to getting fluffy) but I have noticed my hair feeling bouncier and softer after use. In fact, I actually think Cynthia makes a good clarifying shampoo for those of us who are prone to oily locks.

Find Cynthia Sylvia Stout online or in stores for $9.95 CAD/100 mL.


  1. I've never tried any Lush shampoos from the bottles, only their solid shampoos. I might decide to try their normal shampoos and conditioners as I find that their solid shampoo bars don't condition my hair well enough even though it's a two in one. Oh, and one of my shower gels actually contains tequila!

    1. Yum, tequila! I prefer LUSH's regular shampoos over the solid ones too... the solid shampoos I've tried have been really drying for some reason.
