How cute is this little guy? I’ve been meaning to review him for a while now and just went on the Lush website and noticed they have a sale and he is in it, so now is definitely the time! Lush offers amazing handmade products that are not tested on animals and are vegan friendly, which is great news. I picked this little guy up a while back and was saving him for a nice relaxing bath.
‘Our little snowman is about to shuffle off this mortal coil – but not before you get one last bath from him as he disappears for another year.
It is a short but glorious life that our Melting Snowman lives. He may not have long to go, but boy is he going to make a grand exit.
Exquisitely fragranced with Hot Toddy, a favourite blend from Christmas past containing cinnamon, clove, patchouli, benzoin, lime and sweet wild orange oils. But if it isn’t enough to smell of one of our most popular Christmas fragrance – he’s also got a body made of water softening bicarb of soda, cocoa butter and shea butter. All these wonderful butters melt into your bath water, leaving you soft and moisturised. His legacy is your great skin, which means he lives on in the memory of all who knew him.’ – Lush
Okay, I won’t lie all I could smell was a spicey snowman and I imagine that was the cinnamon. The smell was very warming and definitely what you want for a hot bath on a cold winters day. For some weird reason this contains icing sugar? But then again, the eyes are real chocolate drops, which to my surprise melted in the bathtub, see the later picture for the choccie drops. He also contains almond oil and shea butter to leave skin feeling gorgeous and soft. Several other oils such as lime, cinnamon and patchouli are also included and I imagine these are to give the gorgeous scent, rather than condition the skin. This does contain sodium laureth sulfate, which can be pretty drying on the skin but I guess the shea butter cancels this out?
I decapitated my snowman in order to get two baths from him, as my bath is very shallow.
My poor little snowman head fizzed away in the bathtub and dissolved into nothing. If you are looking for a spectacular fizz, this will not give you it. If you want coloured water, this does nothing but make it cloudy. What it does do is make the water very soft, which in turn made my skin soft. Not my favourite lush product of all time, but its a pretty decent price and its pretty cute too.
I promise you, these were the chocolate drops which were left floating in the tub after the snowman head dissolved.
Available from Lush for £1.12 in the sale (previously £2.25)
