Product Review: LUSH Queen Bee Hair Honey


There was no way I’d be able to pass this display in LUSH without purchasing a small slice of Queen Bee Hair Honey. First, my wavy-curly hair always needs a little extra help during the humid summer months. Second, one of my friends has called me “Queen Bee” since our college days.

I can’t wait to try it.
