There was a time in my life where I wouldn’t dare use a bar of soap. I always associated the bars with the breeding of bacteria so I always opted for a bottled product instead. In recent years though I have been pushing myself and trying out bars of soap. One of the bars I’ve been using up recently has been the LUSH Snowcake Soap. Now this soap is one that is limited edition for the festive period so if you want to give it a go, be sure to pick up a bar sooner rather than later to avoid disappointment. Anyway, the soap retails at the affordable price of £3.50 for 100g which I feel is quite reasonable. Now when it comes to using this I don’t use the whole bar (I cannot bring myself to contaminate the pretty bar!) so instead, whenever I want to use the soap, I simply cut a little off. Some might think its a bit of a carry on and a hassle but it works for me. Anyway, the soap has a beautiful marzipan scent which is very cake like yet delicate and calming. The scent does gently linger but it is very soft and not at all overwhelming which is something I enjoy as sometimes marzipan fragrances can become a bit sickly if too overpowering. Anyway, it lathes up really well and provides the skin with a really creamy, rich and luxurious lather that not only soothes really well and gets rid of dirt, it also smoothes the skin. One of the big things I often find with soap bars is that they can sometimes leave the skin feeling a little too clean. You know the feeling when your skin is stripped of moisturise and overly cleansed? That’s what I am talking about. Thankfully this soap does not have that effect on my skin. Instead it keeps my hands feeling soft and thanks to the oils that the product contains, my skin is moisturised and it prevents drying out which is great. In terms of the appearance as you can see the soap has a white base colour and comes topped with beautiful gold shimmer. This is something that I thought would get everywhere and make everything in sight sparkly but it actually wasn’t too bad, plus the gold shimmer does give the soap more of a Christmas vibe which is definitely what I am after at this time of year when the festive season is getting nearer and nearer and I’m ready to get into the crimbo spirit. All in all I’ve very much enjoyed using the vegan friendly LUSH Snowcake Soap and I will be sad when I use the last of my bar up.
Have you tried the LUSH Snowcake Soap? What did you think of it?
