Considering the fact that I absolutely love the Lush Snow Fairy scent, you might understand why I was more than excited to find out Lush came out with a new Christmas scent this year called Snowflake. Half of the name is the same and that made me think this was going to be an amazing scent for me. I obviously ordered a black pot filled with this goodness as quickly as I possibly could. When it came in I instantly started using it and today it’s already time for the review. So if you’re interested in finding out more about this product, make sure you continue reading this post!
The Snowflake Body Lotion from Lush comes in one of their iconic black pots. I’m really glad it does, because for some reason not all body care products are served in black pots anymore. For example, they changed the black pot into a clear pot on the Snow Fairy Body Conditioner. I really don’t like that they did that. These black pots look way more fancy and more Lush-like. I’m sure Lush had a good reason to do that, but I’m glad that the Snowflake body lotion comes in a normal, iconic black pot.
The Lush Snowflake Body Lotion is available in two different sizes. I bought the bigger one because well, why not, but if you’re not too sure about the scent of if you don’t use that much body lotion there’s also a smaller jar. The smaller jar comes with 100 grams of product and the bigger one comes with 225 grams. If you’re a fan of the naked products, the Snowflake body lotion is also available in naked form. The naked version comes just in one size. I think it resembles the bigger jar, but I’m not sure about that.
Like I mentioned before, Snowflake is new this year. It’s a scent we haven’t seen before -or at least I haven’t- and that makes it very exciting. So let’s see what Lush tells us about it:
There’s snow need to fear the ravages of winter when this luxurious body lotion is on your side. A lightweight cream with a triple dose of almond thanks to softening almond milk, moisturising Fair Trade almond oil and sweetly scented almond essential oil. Add to that a splash of soothing rose water, cosy benzoin and delicate sandalwood and you’ve got the perfect tonic to quench the thirst of winter parched skin. Evocative of the first snow of the year, dive into this glistening pot of marzipan scented magic and get it all over your body. “
Lush tells us that the Snowflake body lotion has softening almond milk in it which will both soften the skin and make it smell really good. I’m personally a big fan of the scent of almonds, which is why this body lotion sounded so appealing to me. Aside from almond there’s also some rosewater and sandalwood in the mix, making this body lotion smell like marzipan. I don’t know what marzipan smells like, but if this is what it smells like I love that.
I heard some people talk about Snowflake maybe smelling like Snowcake from Lush, but it doesn’t. I don’t know what Snowcake smells like, but that’s what I heard. So if you were wondering about that, here’s your answer!
In the little text Lush claims that the Snowflake Body Lotion has a lightweight texture. I like it when body lotions are more lightweight because they sink into the skin quicker. However, in the winter I don’t mind heavier creams as well. My skin just needs that moisture. I find that Lush found the perfect balance between those two things in this body lotion. The formula isn’t very thick and heavy, but it still has enough creaminess to it. It’s not as lightweight as say a body yogurt from The Body Shop. But it’s lightweight in a way that it sinks into the skin rather quickly.
The formula on this body lotion feels super soft to the touch. This makes it feel very comfortable, like a soft blanket on the skin. That in combination with the amazing sweet and soft scent makes this a great product.
The scent on this body lotion is present, but not too overpowering. Some days I don’t mind a very strong scented body lotion, but often I prefer it to be present but not too overpowering. Just lik this scent is. You can smell it throughout the entire day but not from miles away.
All in all I think that the Lush Christmas Snowflake Body Lotion is a big hit. The scent is very interesting and really nice and I like the formula on this body lotion as well. It’s lightweight and creamy at the same time and it’s super soft to the touch. This body lotion leaves my skin both smelling great and feeling super soft. It’s definitely a winter essential to me! I’m a big fan!
And that brings us to the end of this review. Thank you guys so much for reading it, and be sure to let me know which scent family from Lush is your all time favourite!
