Snowflake Body Lotion



I think it's only fair to start this review by putting many fans of Snowcake out of their misery and state that this brand new limited edition body lotion does not share the same scent as any of the popular products in this scent family. While there are lots of almond qualities about this seasonal release that may remind consumers of the aforementioned seasonal favourite, I happen to think that it is very different from the classic Snowcake fragrance. 

Having said that, when I first gave Snowflake a sniff from the tub, and rubbed a little into my skin, there was definitely something present in this body lotion that reminded me of Snowcake. However, after using it for the past couple of weeks, I can safely say that I have noticed many differences about the smell that makes it unique from anything else that has come out before.

From the tub, the body lotion offers many subtle layers that work in unison with each other. First of all, there is definitely something very creamy and almond-like about the product. Coupled with the cocoa butter, the base layer of this smells very smooth and silky.

Alongside this, both the cedarwood and sandalwood help to intensify this base layer with their own grounded, woody notes. Although you aren't really able to detect either particularly strongly, you can definitely tell that there is 'something' there to thicken out the overall aroma, and add depth to the fragrance overall.

Yet, alongside this there is also quite a pronounced layer of both apricot and rose. While the latter brings about something quite warm and sweet and delicately floral (as you would expect from most of Lush's rose-dominated products) the apricot gives the body lotion almost a sharp fruity element as well. 

In all honesty, there is something about the latter component that spoils this body lotion for me, although luckily the apricot scent disperses after settling on the skin for a while. In a way, I don't think the apricot really suits being here as it's not really able to flourish by itself and offer something super sweet and juicy. Instead, both this and the rose seem to clash a little to my nose, and the combination offers something a little strange and alluring.

Perhaps this was intentional, who knows. But what I appreciate is that it is certainly something very new to the range this year, and definitely doesn't offer an experience that would be limited to a particular season. Unfortunately, I cannot really see this scent working in most other formats so it's a little limited in this way.

What I did appreciate about Snowflake was that both the rose and the creamy notes of almond intensified from the warmth of my skin after I had applied it, and the apricot seemed to disperse quite a fair bit as well. These former two components then remained on my skin for a good couple of hours after application.

While this lotion is slightly on the thinner side, you really don't need an awful lot to cover a large area of your body. However, once the product has been massaged into the skin, it does tend to take a little longer than usual to fully absorb into the body. While you're not left with greasy skin, there is 'something' present on the surface for a good twenty minutes after you've applied the lotion.

After using this for a couple of weeks, I found that my skin began to look and feel healthier - particularly my legs that had began to show signs of being dry following the sudden change in weather. Despite how thin the body lotion was, I really felt as if it covered a thick coverage across the body, which will be vital during the colder months of the year.

As to whether I would buy this again, that would all depend on my mood at the time. It doesn't offer a scent that I particularly relish in, although I'm not by any means saying that the fragrance is at all bad. However, it did improve the condition of my skin, and leave it with a gentle radiance - all in matter of days/weeks - so Snowflake would be a good body lotion to use when the frosty weather begins to take hold. This is a product that does a good job but probably won't be one remembered in future months/years time.
