Why do Bloggers go mad over Snow Fairy?

Show me a blogger or YouTuber that hasn't indulged in a bottle of Snow Fairy shower gel from LUSH. It's becoming as common place as Micellar water and a Benefit Mascara. But is it really that good?

No it isn't.

Oh i'm sorry Lush, you usually please me with all your magical smelling, scrubbing, bath bombing products but i'm sorry to say, this was a complete fail for me.

So what did i find wrong with it when so many have raved about it? Well firstly it's the smell. It's just so sweet and i mean sickly sweet. When i bought this, i flipped the lid and i was literally hit with this overly sweet smelling cloud of sugary sickness. I was expecting it to have a sweet tang to it but my god this is just too much.

Secondly is the product itself. From a distance it looks like a baby spice pink goop but on closer inspection, it's filled with glitter. Now i wasn't too bothered about this and thought that for the sheer fun factor i wouldn't mind being left looking like Edward Cullen after my shower/bath. But as i learnt to my cost, it was really unpleasant. The glitter may look fine but it makes you shimmer like a Christmas tree and the residue it left in the bath was a worthy adversary for a bottle of CIF shower cream and 15 minutes of constant scrubbing and washing.

Would i buy this again? 100% no. I love LUSH products and i generally can't fault them but this was a complete waste of money and a product that i'll definitely be walking past on the shelves.


  1. I keep smelling this in the shop and I just don't get it! It does nothing for me!

    1. I don't get it either! Either my sense of smell isn't up to scratch or it's clearly just...rubbish. Don't understand why it's getting raved about xx

  2. Great post! I haven't seen this product before but I know quite a few Lush products can be a bit overpowering. I've nominated you for the Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award, head over to my blog to see the details :) Beth xxx

    1. That's exactly what it is..overpowering. I don't know what others see in it that's so amazing, it was a waste of money in my eyes. Oh wow thankyou very much! I'll head over there now xx
