Lush Snow Fairy
Advantages: Gorgeous fragrance
Disadvantages: None for me
My other half buys me a decent supply of Lush each Christmas as he knows it will (a) be incredibly appreciated and (b) it will bring a huge smile to my face which means he knows he has done good - although I have shortlisted a number of products in advance that I would like but I let him take the credit.
Now Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without a bottle of Baileys, mince pies and a bottle of Lush Snow Fairy Shower Gel. It is undoubtedly Lush's best selling Christmas products and it appears in good time before Christmas for people to get their fill. I always make sure I either receive or buy a bottle every Christmas as the gorgeous aroma really does make me feel a bit Christmassy!

"She'll cast a spell on you"
Lush Snow Fairy Shower Gel is a 2 in 1 product as it is has been specifically designed to wash hair as well as the body. It is classed as a "winter temptress" but it certainly does not have a typical winter aroma, think sweets rather than cinnamon! For those that detest glitter then it may be worth noting that this contains fine iridescent glitter!
== Packaging ==
Snow Fairy has had a slight label change this year which is quite 1960s hippy style in pinks and yellows with flower images. However, my bottle last year had the rather typical black label round the clear plastic bottle featuring the Lush logo together with the product name as well as the little sticker telling me who made it and when. Of course on the label there is also the ingredients list together with the contact information for Lush.
== Showering with Snow Fairy ==
I generally use Snow Fairy for an evening shower or when going out on a night out as I love the fragrance it gives. Now, the fragrance is something that is a talking point with Lush followers but Lush seem to have got it down quite well as a cross between candy floss and pear drops and having read that on their website I can now every time I shower with it smell pear drops which I love and this definitely as a fruity yet sweet fragrance which for me is gorgeous.
Snow Fairy has a lovely thick consistency which although is easily squeezed from it's bottle it will sit quite happily on your sponge until you are ready to clean yourself with this gorgeously pink glittered shower gel. It doesn't take much for it to lather up into a mound of white frothy bubbles which are incredibly soft to the touch. Despite being full of fine iridescent glitter as soon as it is out on your sponge it disperses quite quickly so you don't end up after the shower looking like a human disco ball.
Now the shower gel hasn't been made to be overly moisturising or have any specific properties but it does clean the skin well and even on my dry and sometimes sensitive skin at the moment this hasn't irritated my skin whatsoever. It leaves my skin beautifully soft with a gorgeously sweet aroma which does manage to linger around for quite sometime. Now although it does have a sweet/fruity smell it isn't overpowering or sickly which personally is a big plus for me.
== Overall ==
This shower gel is a Christmas must, it is adored by thousands as it is wonderfullu girly with a festive twist. The glitter is a nice addition but it doesn't really stay around on the skin which for me is not a problem as I didn't buy it for the glitter. The aroma is what makes this product so special and I love it. I really don't have any problems with this shower gel other than it is a limited edition but then I guess if I was able to buy it all year round it wouldn't be so special.
If you haven't tried this yet, then you must. It is a beautiful shower gel which really has a festive touch to it. I am more than happy to receive this and will hopefully continue to do so and hope that Lush will never stop making it! Therefore, I can easily give it 5 stars.
