LUSH Snowcake Soap Review and Pictures

LUSH Snowcake Soap – dessert, anyone?

Why do people love LUSH so much? What’s so good about it? I guess it’s one of those things everyone has to try for themselves, because you will either instantly fall in love with their products or vow to stay as far away from them as possible. I purchased quite a few things from them recently so I figured I might as well share with you what I got, and maybe you can share your LUSH hauls with me, too.

LUSH Snowcake Soap

My all-time favorite LUSH product is Snowcake Soap, which is only released as part of Limited Edition Christmas Collection every year. After the Holiday season is over, LUSH hosts their annual sale event called Boxing Day Sale, which is also the only way to get their products at a discount. Depending on where you shop [Lush USA or Lush UK] the sale will either be a BOGO, or flat 50% off. Considering that LUSH USA and LUSH UK sites might have different products in stock, I usually end up purchasing from both.

Snowcake is one of the creamiest soaps from the lineup, and in my opinion, the best smelling. If you love sweet almond or sweet vanilla frosting scents, imagine those two mixed together and you’ll get Snowcake. The lather is luxuriously moisturizing, and feels like lotion when you spread it on the skin, however it washes off completely and provides that squeaky clean feeling. The best part is that it doesn’t make your skin super dry, like it often happens with most other soaps.

LUSH Snowcake Soap – gold dust

My main problem with this soap is the gold dust on top. I find it cute, but unnecessary and impractical, because it washes off the very first time it contacts the water. Another con is the lasting time: because Snowcake is so creamy, it vanishes faster than other soaps. A typical 100g piece lasts me about 3 weeks of daily use in the shower for full body washing, and that’s 1-2 weeks less than most bar soaps. Some fellow lushies recommend splitting the bar into several small pieces and using them separately, but it didn’t really seem to work for me.

This year I bought six pieces of Snowcake, and that should last me through the remainder of the cold season, and all the way until the end of Spring, or at least I hope it does 🙂 I purchased several other soaps along with this one in an attempt to use Snowcake less, which might make my stash last a bit longer.

$7.95 USD for 3.5 oz. Available exclusively at LUSH during the Winter Holiday season.
