When I first gave the Snowman shower jelly a sniff I was blown away by its fruity, zingy, spring like fragrance. Plenty of other Lush Winter products are citrusy, there’s the Golden Wonder bath bomb and the Satsuma bath bomb too. None are however quite like the Snowman shower jelly.
Including a mixture of lemon and bergamot oil, Snowman has a much lighter citrus fragrance than I am used to in the Winter. Its scent doesn’t remind me of Christmas time at all, it actually reminds me more of the Spring time. It makes me think of when all the flowers are blooming and the sun finally comes out of hiding… Maybe this is why it works so well as a Winter product, it’s Lush’s way of letting me know that Winter isn’t forever.
Snowman actually perks me up on a cold Winters morning. While the most obvious wake-me-up product for Winter is the Christingle body conditioner, I find it way too cold for the Winter time.
Snowman offers a cheery alternative that doesn’t make you feel like you’ll never feel warm again. It’s honestly so much better on a Winters morning than Christingle, save your pot of Christingle for the Summer. You’ll thank me for that advice when Summer comes around, trust me.
Since discovering the Snowman’s uplifting fragrance I now rarely use another jelly of a morning.
The Snowman comes in 100g pots, making it the perfect size to hold. I like to use my shower jellies whole, treating it the same as a bar of soap. Some like to cut theres up, using a chunk at a time, it’s all down to personal preference, there is no right or wrong way.
Snowman lathers up with ease, it cleanses and refreshes my skin beautifully, its scent then stays with me for the remainder of the day.
I was very pleased to see that this shower jelly had returned this year (2016), I however have the same feelings for the Snowman shower jelly as I do the So White shower gel, I would really like to see it in an alternative shower gel or cream format. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE Snowman shower jelly, I am just greedy, when I fall in love with a scent I can’t help but want more and more and more.
