Snowcake has it's own cult following. This might seem a little strange to people who have only just discovered Lush. Once upon a time, Lush's soaps were make with palm oil and were excellent. Not so very long ago, they changed their formula to be palm free due to how palm oil is produced and how it destroys orangutan habitat. The new formula is nothing like the old. It doesn't tend to hold scent as well, tends to have it's own soapy smell that mixes with the intended scent, has much lower sudsing ability ....and in general are rather sub par. Some of us have been around long enough to remember the old Snowcake. Actually, I'm holding onto a bar of the original formula, sniffing it with a smile. Such a wonderful scent...almondy, sweet, creamy....smells so good you could just about talk yourself into licking it. When you use it, it gives you loads of creamy suds and leaves you smelling wonderful all day. My favorite was to pop in a Marzibain bubble bar, add in a Lush Pud bath bomb *or even a butterball, but Lush pud gives it a little Xmas spice, adding some character* and using Snowcake to wash with. It was like bathing in your favorite sweets, without being to fakey or cloying. I really wish I could share a bit of my original formula with everyone...then you'd see what a treasure Snowflake can be. It's still nice...but it WAS fantastic!

I've been hearing about this soap for years and finally got to try it in a gift set. I had high expectations as I adore almond scents. Snowcake just didn't do it for me. The soap itself is soft and lathered nicely, but the scent is just ok. I much prefer Yardley's almond soap to this. I will use snowcaka up but would not repurchase.

smells amazing! i got mine for half price during the after christmas sale as i was told it was nice for sensitive skin. it's creamy but not greasy, not an overpowering scent at all - mostly almond but a little sugar, maybe some musk? i can't understand how someone could not like this scent unless they got a bad batch/it went rancid.

Just got this as part of a gift and I love it. Rich, creamy and smells divine! Disappointed to hear that it's a holiday soap only because I would definitely repurchase it throughout the year. The only downside is I find that it melts away very quickly. I have used it in the bath about 5 times now and it is already down to about half of it's original size. The only lush soap I have found that doesn't disappear quickly is the Honey I Washed the Kids soap. For some reason it has more lasting power than the other soaps and I love the scent as well.

I've been using Lush products for over 9 years since I studied abroad in London, but I've never been a fan of their soap bars as I find them too drying. But this is AMAZING!!! It smells divine - like almond and has some grassiness to it. The lather is super rich and creamy. And after buying this I found out that Smitten has the same smell, so I went back and got that too. I wish this was a year round product and not just available during the holidays.

Not impressed. Smells like cheap generic motel soap. Very drying and doesn't last, which in my case I am actually happy about. Not happy that it cost so much and was so disappointing tho.

I love the smell of this, although I must be allergic because sometimes if I breathe deeply I sneeze. And while it's moisturizing, I find the Olay bar I rotate it with far more so - and I get 2 of those for around 2 bucks vs the very small sliver of this I got for 8. And 1 Olay bar lasts longer too and suds up better.


So far, I've yet to see what the LUSH fuss is about. :(

Snowcake is yummy! It's a very sweet, subtle scent, that you can barely tell exists on your skin! It's simply light as a feather, but nice as can be! It's not one of my all time favorites by Lush, but the 15 dollars worth should last me just long enough! I find it quite moisturizing on the skin. :)
