Last Winter I decided to step out of my comfort zone when it came to trying Lush products. There would strictly be no more avoiding a product based on my first impression of it, I was going to give each product a fair chance to impress me. I make it no secret that the super sweet products from Lush are normally my least favourite. Since introducing this new rule of mine it has really helped me broaden my Lush horizons. There are so many Lush scents and products I now love that I wouldn’t ever have considered trying before.
The Snow Fairy scent is one of Lush’s most popular winter fragrances, its scent has been used in so many products in so many formats that it’s not very easy to remember them all. I honestly wasn’t that sold on the scent at first, I have however warmed to it over the years. The fact that it is bright pink works in its favour too as pink is my favourite colour.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock you’ll have heard about Lush’s new naked products. Much like the Snow Fairy scent at first I wasn’t sold on the naked products. After trying the Twilight naked shower gel I however decided that they were actually quite a good idea. Especially for people such as myself that struggle with bottles and lids because of bad hands.
The Snow Fairy naked shower gel has pretty much the same ingredients as the original bottled up Snow Fairy shower gel, the only difference is the sodium stearate, this ingredient is what makes the product solid. All of the naked shower gels work in exactly the same way as their bottled equivalents. To look at I’d say it was soap, despite this the naked shower gels contain no soap base at all. You use a naked shower gel just as you would a normal shower gel. Instead of fiddling with a lid and then squidiging the product out of the bottle you now just have to lather the naked shower gel similar to how you would a bar of soap. (It however really isn’t a bar soap!)
The naked shower gels are squishy to the touch, solid enough to hold their bottle-shape but squishy enough to help give you an easy lather. The Snow Fairy naked shower gel is just as consistent as the normal shower gel is, I cannot tell the difference between the naked and normal shower gels once I am lathering it up, washing my body.
Overall I think the naked Snow Fairy shower gel is just as good as the bottled version. I actually find it more moisturising, although you can layer the Snow Fairy scent up onto your skin further by using some Snow Fairy body conditioner alongside it, I don’t feel it is necessary once you’ve used the Snow Fairy naked shower gel. Snow Fairy is not one of my favourites of the winter scents but the Snow Fairy naked shower gel has earnt itself a place up on my shower gel shelf, this way I have easy access to it and can use it whenever I please.
