I bought this last Christmas. I fell in love with it in the store... And the first couple times I used it I really loved it. But after a while I started finding the scent too sweet and cough medicine smelling. I had to force myself to finish it but I wouldn't buy it again. For the price I much prefer philosophy body wash.
OK, I jumped in the band wagon... I bought this product in the tiniest size because I kept hearing people rave about it! and it kept selling out in my local LUSH store....
However, when I first smelled it... it was SOOOOO SWEET! like sickly sweet (reminds me of kids cough medicine)... that if I huffed on it long enough, I know I will get a headache...
BUT one of the consultants and I tried it in the store... and when the snow fairy shower get hit water, the scent mellowed out... like somehow the chemicals calmed down and the sickly sweet scent turned into a cottoncandy smell; and this also made my hands feel so soft...
The pink colour and the sparkles are visually appealing as well...
Like any other lush shower gels, it's not as moisturizing as a bath melt, so I have to use my kind of skin solid body lotion after using any lush shower gels just for added moisture...
WELL... I bought one of the 100 ml size for $10 to try... I think if I like it enough, I will but it again... I know the Father Christmas bomb has the same scent as snow fairy shower gel, but it's not as strong, so I may try that. =)
Smells amazing! Exactly my kind of smell. It lathers up really well and it makes my skin smell sweet like bubblegum/cotton candy for a long time. I look forward to christmas every year in order to buy this. I would repurchase it over and over again and can not recommend it enough
This is a candy-smelling shower gel that brings back memories for me from when I was in high school, which probably is the only reason I'd buy it again.
The smell is kind of strong and very sweet, and this product is kind of expensive for me.
I'm more into fresh-smelling shower thingys, but this is not one of those. I would buy this in a tiny package around Christmas again, just for old times sake, but really this product is nothing special. With this high price, one can get a product with much higher quality than this one. Snow Fairy got nothin' on good ol' Nivea!
It smells like cough medicine. I wish it smelled like a bubblegum rainbow but it doesn't.. The special packaging is adorable and I like the sparkles in it but it seems no matter how long I place it upside down or on its side the glitter stays at the bottom. The color is cute too. Although it smells like medicine, I'm pretty tough at putting up with it. Also I'm pretty pissed that Lush uses parabens even when they stress that their stuff is soo natural and will expire.
I was so excited to get my hands on this shower gel after spending several months waiting for its release -I got into Lush the february of last year so by then the shower gel was completely out of stock, but there was a display sample size of it left that I sniffed and fell in love with.
The following September I was lucky enough to drop by the Lush store as they just received their Christmas batch (it was still in boxes) and I got myself TWO big sizes of the snow fairy shower gel.
Now, after using it for several months (I'm almost done with the first bottle), I don't find myself loving the scent as much! It's just too sickly sweet and unfortunately I have another full size of this stuff I need to go through!
In general, I definitely wouldn't repurchase it next Christmas, but instead will repurchase the It's Raining Men shower gel because that one is my absolute favorite :)
I love the scent of this product. And I'm a fan of anything pink so that helps. I get tons of bubbles when I use this and my skin smells nice for quite a while after. I find you do not need to use much of it to get a lot of bubbles so it last a while, making it worth its price. Hate that this is only a limited edition product, it makes me scared that I'll run out and have to wait for it to come back in.
If you're a fan of very sweet, candy-like scents, this is definitely for you. I like it, the entire bathroom smells like bubblegum after I've used it and the pink colour is just so girly and sweet.
But, besides the smell I don't really feel like it does much. Except get you clean, of course. But on the other hand, I'm not really looking for much more in a shower gel. I still use a body scrub and body butter afterwards.
Notice how every review about this starts with reference to the smell of this shower gel? Well kids, that's because this product is ALL about the fragrance! It's akin to sugar and bubblegum, and smells like Lush's Rock Star soap and Snow Fairy Bubble wand.
If you open it up, take a whiff and are unimpressed, put it down, back away, maybe leave the store.
I huffed it, and loved it, however.
I love how soft it leaves your skin. I love how creamy the lather is when used with a body puff. I love how the smell lingers for a few hours on your skin... it's just a delight!
Just take my advice and take a whiff first, capisce?!
I usually buy this on Boxing Day because it is on sale. I like the plastic bottles from lush because I can use the mini ones for travelling. Snow fairy is a very odd but sweet and delightful scent. It is a pearly pink and has glitters. The glitters always sink to the bottom though, so I don't know what they do. This can be used as a shower gel or shampoo. The smell stays on for a while but does go away. Next Boxing Day, I will purchase a larger bottle
