I got this soap last year in one of the many Xmas gift boxes Lush offer.
I have to say I was expecting a strong marzipan-like almond scent, which definitely is not there! It kind of smells like almond icing/essence, but the scent is quite subtle, and there is another scent I can smell, that I can't put my finger on. The scent is still quite nice, I like it!
It lathers quite well and very easily which I like. Another reviewer mentioned a kind of mousse-like hard-soft (hard-soft?! Anyone who's tried this soap should understand what I'm trying to describe!) texture; the soap definitely has it - when wet in your hands and you rub it between them, you can see and feel that mousse-y texture.
I don't think the scent lingers on your skin, except maybe a few minutes after your bath or shower.
Overall I like this soap, but I wouldn't purchase it on its own; I would buy it in another gift box.

I realise some people like this marzipan scent, but I don't. I guess it works as a soap, but I wont be buying it (got it as a free sample).

I really like this soap! The scent is lovely, soft and comforting, but there is something bright and crisp in it as well, reminds me of a frosty evening sleigh-ride in a Russian winter. :) It doesn't dry up my skin and lathers really well, it has a luxurious feeling to it and I'm sad that mine is almost used up now. I definitely recommend this!

I read and heard a lot of fantastic comments about Snowcake, so I was expecting the be all and end all of soap. After using it, I'm having a very hard time understanding the hype behind this soap. It smells mildly like almond, and that scent does not deposit on the skin. It isn't a moisturizing soap, but at the same time, it isn't drying to the skin. Nice is really the only adjective I can come up for this one. I wasn't impressed.

I got a couple of these as samples and also in gift boxes. I am not a fan of the smell to be honest. I know there's a lot of people who love it and so on and so forth, and believe me I tried to like it. But it's simply just not for me. As for the effects, it's really like any other soap, just less chemicals. The smell does linger if you wash your hands with this, I have not tried it in the shower. Smells woody/almondy? It's a REALLY specific smell, I just can't put my finger on it.

I got this soap over Christmas and I love it, I actually think it might be my favourite LUSH soap. It smells gorgeous, it's really creamy and it makes my skin really soft.
Unfortunately I've used it so much that I only have a tiny amount left. I wish it wasn't just a Christmas soap, I'd love to be able to get it all year round.

This soap smells sooooo GOOD! Just as described, I just wish the yummy scent would linger on the skin longer. I personally like my soaps to lather, and this one doesn't lather, but I bought two back ups since batches differ. To those who are saying theirs smell like playdoh, they must have gotten a bad batch, because this soap smells NOTHING like playdoh, trust me! Loves it...

I first purchased this back in Dec. very excited to try out this soap that supposedly smelled of almond frosting. Uhm no, frosting smell yet as the post below states play-doh is what I get from it also the salty doughy scent of it. Although I do like the scent of play-doh, I do not like washing my body w/the scent lol.
Well my first encounter w/my soap sucked,the chunk I cut melted before I could finish scrubbing, and i'm talking w/a loofah. Besides that it did not sud no matter what I tried, rubbing the bar over my skin, rubbing it in my hands w/a loofah,also w/a wash cloth! Omg! By this time this soap is quickly becoming my arch enemy. After wasting three chunks I finally gave up. Haven't touched it since Dec.
Now 4 months later I stumble upon Snowcake in my bathroom, fine I guess i'll give it another try, what have I got to lose? Would you know that this dang chunk i'm giving a second chance has not melted yet! I'm already on shower number 5! What the heck? It has now transformed into a soap that suds like no other, now I have nice soft white play-doh suds that last my whole shower and I even feel bad washing the excess down the drain! Overall this soap smells funny to me, now lasts forever and doesn't make my skin feel clean very long. Will finish it up and not repurchase to be haunted by this soap again lol.

I love lush, it's probably where I spend most of my money. I really wanted to like this soap. I had wanted to buy it every holiday season but never seemed to get around to it before it sold out. Well this year I received a gift from Lush that included this. It was a small little star and so very cute. I got it out of the packaging and though it smelled a little odd I didn't think much of it because I dislike the smell Lush has when all of their scents combine. So I thought that's what I was smelling. No it wasn't. This soap has the worst play-doh scent imaginable. I use it as a hand soap because luckily the scent isn't lasting and it doesn't really dry my hands out. However, I will not be buying this next holiday season.

I really wanted to like this soap. ACtually, I do like it. It has a very mellow scent that is not overpowering and not really play-doh-ish imo. I get migraines easily from scent and this soap does not trigger any for me. However, it has NO lather!!! I've used it a few times in the shower now and I had to rub rub rub and got a few measly bubbles. I don't need tons of lather to know soap is working, but I'm a bubble kinda girl and I like a soap to at least please me with some fun bubbles. This soap just teased me. So, I won't be buying it.
