Snow Fairy Soap

A Christmas period without an abundance of Snow Fairy would almost be the the same as having a birthday party without cake: it just wouldn't feel right. Yet that's not to say that us long-term Lush fans always appreciate the number of products that saturate the seasonal range every year. I'll be honest and say that there hasn't been a Snow Fairy scented product that has ever excited me as much as the original shower gel, and there hasn't ever been a Snow Fairy release that has made me want to buy more than the initial one I've invested in, aside from the potted body conditioner.

Yet this year Lush have decided that the millions of sickly candy-scented products wouldn't be complete without a soap to join their ranks. Last year's cold-pressed version wasn't obviously in agreement with a large percentage of consumers, so this year's rendition is a hexagonal block of bright pink goodness.

Sharing it's design with one of last year's bath bombs, this pink block of solid oils looks like the Barbie version of a snowflake. Yet a difference that I noticed straight away with the fragrance of this was that the inclusion of the marshmallow root seems to give this soap an almost extra powdery note on top of the usual sickly sweet scents that you would expect.

For those who have never tried Snow Fairy, this is easily Lush's most commercial and also their most synthetic fragrance that they have ever produced. You wouldn't be hard-pressed to find something similar to this smell in your regular high street stores: which is why many new Lush fans find themselves hooked on this scent family first.

As I have described in the million and one other reviews of Snow Fairy smelling cosmetics, the scent of this soap is like a playful, youthful candy floss aroma, with hints of raspberry bubblegum and synthetic vanilla alongside this. While the smell is very intense and does last a while on the skin, I wouldn't ever say that this fragrance was particularly complex or interesting.

What I found promising with this soap rendition is that it lathers up wit ease under the running water, and it didn't take more than a matter of seconds to produce enough foam to clean my entire body with. However, because it is rather generous, the block tends to shrink fairly quickly, and I found that after using it for the first week - even when I made a conscious effort to keep it away from too much water - that the a good third of the bar had been used. 

Although I'm only estimating a time frame, I can imagine a 250g bottle of the original shower gel lasting almost quadruple the amount of time that one of these Snow Fairy soaps would last me, and I happen to think that the smell of the shower gel is far better, and far more robust, than what this soap has offered me recently. 

As with most soaps I have tried from Lush, Snow Fairy isn't exactly the most moisturising on my skin, and I did need to moisturise afterwards in order to retain the moisture in my skin. Luckily, Lush have re-released their body conditioner this year so I was able to use that to restore some of the missing moisture. However, this is not something I would usually need to worry about with any of their shower gels and jellies. 

Therefore, if you're in love with the Snow Fairy scent, you will probably appreciate that Lush have created another format to get your eager hands on. However, if you're not particularly bothered by this fragrance family, you may wish to choose an alternative product to try, or stick with the shower gel if you fancy something sweet, but something that is equally moisturising. 

As a stocking filler, this would make a nice little gift, as it looks rather lovely and does have a pretty smell to enjoy. However, the speed in which the soap shrinks; and the lack of moisture that it leaves on your skin afterwards, means that this is not something I would advocate buying many of.

  1. Get Your Ex Lover Back No Matter Why He Left You”
    I just got my ex husband back through the help of Dr Jumba love spell Experts.
     My husband left me for another woman, This was just 3 years of our marriage. The most painful thing is that I was pregnant with our second baby. I wanted him back. I did everything within my reach to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so badly because of the love I had for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to my friend and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back. I had no choice but to try it. I messaged the spell caster called dr Jumba, and he assured me there was no problem and that everything will be okay before 11 hours. He cast the spell and surprisingly 11 hours later my husband called me. I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that had happened. He wanted me to return to him. He also said he loved me so much. I was so happy and went to him. That was how we started living together happily again.thanks to dr Jumba .
