As soon as you take the lid off of the Snowshowers Shower Jelly you are greeted with the comforting and refreshing scent of warming cognac, sweet orange and zesty lime. As its name indicates, Snowshowers is of course a Winter product. I however always have a pot around whatever the season as its scent (named by Lush as the ‘Celebrate’ scent) is one of my favourites.
Lush Cosmetics master scents. Once a scent is mastered, over a very long period of time (sometimes years) they create an abundance of products that share that mastered scent. This is where the Lush term ‘scent family’ comes from, if a product shares the same scent as another new or old one, it’s a part of that scents family.
The Celebrate scent that Snowshowers has, can also be found in a wide range of other Lush products. There’s the Golden Wonder bath bomb which happens to be the product that first introduced me to the Celebrate scent, the Celebrate shower gel and the Celebrate body lotion to name just a few.
Snowshowers shower jelly is a fairly robust product, some of the Lush shower jellies such as the Bouncy Bunny tend to break up really easily but not Snowshowers. I like to use my shower jellies in the same way as you would a bar of soap. Some people however prefer to chop their jellies up, using one piece at a time. It’s all about personal preference, I just prefer to use mine as a whole as I feel it gives me a much better, much creamier lather, plus I love how it feels being worked along my skin, it’s so, so relaxing. Especially on the soles of your feet.
*This is the point of the review where my husband regrets secretly using my Lush shower jellies. ha, ha, I use them on my feet!*
I have found that even with frequent use, Snowshowers takes a very long time to start showing any signs of wear and tear, it takes a good few weeks before it starts to get noticeably smaller which is quite rare for a shower jelly, the only one that I have used that has been as robust as this was the Santa’s Belly shower jelly. Unfortunately nothing lasts forever, I do however find that the Snowshowers shower jelly still lathers up just as well as it did from day one after every use, its quality doesn’t depreciate with age, its scent also remains just as strong right up until the very last slither is left.
Unfortunately I find that the Snowshowers shower jelly leaves my skin quite dry and in need of a little extra hydration after use. I’m not quite sure why it does make my skin feel so dry as I normally always find that the shower products that lather up as well as Snowshowers does the most moisturising.
This problem is however easily solved as a quick dab of Celebrate body lotion once I am out of the shower bounces my skin back into a tip top, perfectly hydrated condition. As the Celebrate body lotion and Snowshowers shower jelly share a scent, using the both together intensifies its gorgeous fragrance further, leaving its scent to stay on your skin for the best part of the rest of the day, which is more than perfect for me as I’m a huge fan of the Celebrate scent.
Overall I am very impressed with the Snowshowers shower jelly, it’s a great product that lasts well beyond 10 uses. I know some people shiver at the thought of a Lush bath bomb only being used in one bath, instead maybe a shower jelly is the product for them? If you’re looking to convert someone like this to the Lush side, this shower jelly could just be the product that wins them over!
