Lush Shower Gel - Snow Fairy

Lush's Shower Gel in Snow Fairy is undoubtedly the Lush product that I have wanted the most for the longest time. It's limited edition type nature (only being sold around Christmas), instead of putting me off, simply made me want it more.

I was lucky to get this little (it really is tiny) 100g beauty for Christmas and I've been using it non-stop since, it replacing my I love...Strawberries and Milkshake body wash which I liked so very much.

If you've ever tried the Lush Bubblegum lip scrub then you can get an idea of what to expect in terms of fragrance. Snow fairy smells identical to the Bubblegum scrub, though I wouldn't imagine it tastes quite as nice, being a shower gel and all.

The fragrance is quite overpowering when you use it in the shower and due to its tooth-ache inducing sweet, sugary nature I expect there would be a lot of people who find it just too much to handle. I myself do really like it, but for someone who adores strong sugary smells, I still find it even a bit too much for me!

Once having moved out of the shower the scent becomes very faint although is still present on the skin. I much prefer it in this state if I'm really honest.

I was surprised to find that it contains shimmery blue sparkles as I'd not been aware of this prior to using the product. Unfortunately they aren't dispersed evenly throughout, rather clumped together at the bottom of the bottle. It still adds a nice touch to the product though.

As for the actual shower gel, it lathers up nicely and works well. There isn't much more to say about it except that it works. I have heard of people using it for their hair but I'm not sure I like the idea of using a bright pink, blue glittery product through my hair...

Lush recently revamped all their packaging, and I have to say I'm not really a fan. It doesn't look as classy as it once did, it looks cheaper and the feel isn't like it once was. I don't really like the packaging for this product, I think it looks a bit like a homemade label and it looks a lot more childish.

I can't recall how much this actually was but I imagine it would be on par with Lush's other shower gels. I do like this little product, though I wouldn't suggest you buy it until you've had a really good sniff of it in the shops because it is so very strong!

I give this 7/10.

Can you see the glitter?


  1. I love Snow Fairy so much! I love the bubblegum lip scrub, and sweet scents. I think the only problem with this product is that there isn't a moisturiser to match! I would love to smell like bubblegum and lollies all day, haha.
    I also keep mine upside down in the shower so all the glitter goes towards the top. It all washes off so you don't have to worry about being glittery but it's fun to wash in glitter!

    1. Oh wow, I think the world would go crazy for a snow fairy moisturiser!

      Ahhh I must store mine like that, it's a pain with all the glitter sinking to the bottom.

      It is a very fun product :)


  2. Wow nice product..definitely gonna try :)
