I actually got this in a LUSH sample pack. It smells like HEAVEN. and I'm kind of picky on scents. It wasn't too drying, it smells like vanilla/almond bliss. Quite an unusual smell to me but I'm a vanilla girl and this was great! Smells yummy, not too drying, my only complaint is that it could've lathered more. It also didn't leave a lingering scent, but I honestly don't mind that one bit because I put on scented lotion and then body spray and I HATE conflicting scents. I will definitely be asking for this when I go off to college:)

I love the calming and clean scent of this! Smells like sugar and almonds and vanilla cake. It's sooooo moisturising and luxurious, yet lathers really well.Lasts quite a while too, but still a little pricey.

I love this soap and definitely wish it was part of Lush's permanent collection. It smells beautiful, like almonds, marzipan and cream. It is one of Lush's Christmas limited edition soaps, and is one of the cheaper soaps which is excellent, as you can buy a lot and stock up! It is one of Lush's creamier soaps, similar in consistency to Rockstar. It is white, and has a gold lustre on the outside of the soap, however this lustre does was off rather easily. It makes my bathroom smell lovely and the scent lasts on the skin as well. It leaves my hands soft and sweet smelling. This is perhaps my favourite Lush soap, I love it! Get it while you can.

I am not in the Lush store all the time, but a few years ago, during the holidays, I bought a bar of this and my boyfriend, who is not someone to care about skin care or cosmetics, fell in love with this soap. It is clean but moisturizing and smells of almonds and honey and vanilla and cream. He actually gushed about how it smelled and how his skin felt. I ended up going back to the store and stocking up.This is a Christmas scent, so they only have it for a couple of months a year. But since this was the only soap my boyfriend ever cared about, talked about, or asked for, I got into the habit of buying him a bag of it, a pound or two, as a stocking stuffer. It's pricey. I'm not going to lie.The only problem is, this organic handmade stuff melts and disintegrates in the shower. So I would have to dole out slices of it that would last about a week and had a special soap dish with holes to prevent water from collecting underneath it and turning it into sludge. I think it's been five Christmases. I asked him not too long ago if he still likes the soap, and he does. But Lush only makes it seasonally.Once I tried giving him, "Honey, I Washed the Kids," which is available year-round. It was okay. He only wants Snowcake. They need to make this 365 days a year.

What I would give for Lush to make this a permanent item! I personally feel like Lush's cream based soaps clean and lather better than the transparent ones. As a Christmas scent, this smells seasonal without feeling like Santa Claus punched you in the sinuses with cinnamon and peppermint and egg nog. It's a creamy slightly spicy slightly floral scent that's pretty delicate. Snowcake is probably the best lathering Lush soap I've used (and I've used pretty much all of them...I have a problem) and it was super moisturizing! When Christmas comes again I'm buying bricks of this!

I purchased this soap during the after x-mas buy one get one sale. After reading such rave reviews I was pretty excited but when it finally arrived and I smelled it I felt a little let down. I just didn't feel that wowed by the smell. After using off and on for a week or so the smell has grown on me and I do like it more. It's a very rich, creamy soap that lathers very well and doesn't dry my skin. After washing it just kind of has that unscented dove smell and doesn't linger. I would recommend this soap to someone who may be sensitive to strong scents but still wants to enjoy something from lush. It is a very pretty soap (all of the pretty gold topping washes away as soon as the water hits it though). I can see why people like this soap but I like others more.UPDATE: something about this soap continues to grow on me...

There is really nothing else to say about the Christmas limited-edition Snowcake Soap except that it is FLAWLESS!The beautiful marzipan almond and vanilla smell to this soap is literally addicting, I cannot get enough of it. When I used this a couple Christmases ago, my grandmother literally asked me after my shower where she could find whatever product I was using, she couldn't believe how good I smelled. So yes, the smell lingers on your skin for the whole day, which I personally enjoy. This soap is pretty cool too as the top of it is gold with fine gold glitter, which just makes it even more festive looking. I really wish LUSH made this soap a permanent product because I would actually buy it all the time.

Love the scent so, so much, but I'm not overly keen on the soap itself. I find it quite drying and the scent doesn't seem to linger on my skin after showering. Like all lush soap a bar lasts ages and the packaging is nothing special.

UPDATE: It turns out that this soap, when packaged in the plastic that LUSH ships/processes it in, absorbs the smell of the plastic package. That being said, after a few washes the scent is a (mostly) plastic free creamy cinnamon powdery scent. It's pretty, but it's not a fav. I do still really like how moisturizing it is.Maybe I got a bad batch. This smells like plastic dolls and Playdough rolled in sugar. I know it's not just my nose because my husband noticed it too. I usually LOVE marzipan and this isn't it. If it wasn't for the nauseating smell, this would be lovely. The formulations is incredibly creamy and is perfect for shaving.

I'm just going to start this out with that I love LUSH. From the store, to the website, to the ingredients, to the packaging, and to my little stash I allow myself sometimes. (Considering I'm on a budget.. But aren't we all?)OK. Anyways. When LUSH's Christmas products came out, I was more than excited. However, It's kind of a tradition for me to wait until Christmas to receive my LUSH Christmas items. But, I just couldn't wait on this one. So, before I knew it, a little box of LUSH goodies was on it's way to my doorstep-- including this product. AND THANK GOD I DISCOVERED IT WHEN I DID.I'd never smelled it before, but when I did, I instantaneously fell in love. This smell filled the whole box. I didn't want to use it as soon as I got it, so I just waited until the next night where I'd pair it with a bubble bar for a nice soak. I didn't take it out of it's packaging until I was ready to use it, so it would stay fresh. When I unwrapped it, I was very pleasantly surprised! It had little cute gold detailing on the top that truly made it a Christmas product. And, as if to add to the effect, it felt so moisturizing that it almost slipped out of my hands. So I checked just to make sure it was a soap, and not a giant bath melt. And indeed it was a soap. A thick, creamy soap.So I cut a little slice off like I do with all of my LUSH soaps, and laid it on the side of my tub. I ran some water and crumbled my bubble bar, (Sunnyside, by the way. Maybe odd for winter, but a favorite none the less). While the water was running, I got out a book and just enjoyed everything for awhile, then, it was time (You'd think it'd be more the just a soap by my choice of words!). So I wet the soap and, well, for the lack of a better word, rubbed it on myself. Now, I am the only one in my house who uses my stash, so no judging here. And, I also don't think you get the true benefits of LUSH soaps from a loofah or rag. Back to business. As soon as I started to massage this soap into my skin, I immediately noticed how moisturizing this soap was! It just didn't feel like I was rubbing soap into my body. More like a body conditioner, or lotion. That you wash off. However, it was a very noticeable difference compared to my other most-reached-for soaps (Rock Star, Honey I Washed the Kids, The Godmother, all the sweet scents.) They all did fine-- but Snowcake was different. I rinsed it off and dried off, and put on my clothes, and I noticed something smelled really good. LIke, really good. After struggling for at least two minutes, I realized it was me! I was actually smelling the scent on my skin! So then, of course I reached to feel my skin, which felt extremely moisturized, considering I'd just realized I had forgot to apply my night cream. I smelled my arm, and it smelled just like almonds and marzipan. So I knew it was this soap. I noticed the smell until I fell asleep that night. Which was nice, I fell asleep with a beautiful aroma around me. But when I woke up, it was gone. However I won't complain, because of how strong the scent was before. But, I did notice that my skin still felt nice and moisturized, and I still hadn't moisturized. Not good for the heart of winter. So now, It's a few days later, and I just got out of the tub, where I used this soap. And now I'm sitting here writing an incredibly detailed review while being wrapped in the beautiful aroma that I was cleansed with (I tried to make it sound fancy. No judging!).So, in the end, this is still a rave review of a soap. But, I highly recommend this. I will no doubt be stocking up on this. However, it does get four lippies on price, because it's LUSH. But, I think it's extremely worth it.So, go to LUSH and buy this RIGHT away!
