LUSH Snowman Shower Jelly

 Lush Snowman Shower Jelly
Shower Jelly – £3.50

Want to know a fun fact? I hate the Snowman, the film. Please don’t unsubscribe or stop reading this, I do have my reasons. I just find the music so sad and dramatic for something that is essentially a children’s Christmas film. I also got a bit upset when the Snowman melted. Children’s films should always have happy endings, especially at Christmas. I will redeem myself though and say I love anything with snowmen (or women, or dogs) one them, so when I saw this Limited Edition shower jelly in the Lush Christmas collection, I had to grab a pot to try.

When I first got the pot I was initially a little confused and thought I must have misread that the jelly was in the shape of a snowman, as it looked very flat in the tub. However, after you unfold the while amount of the jelly, just smaller than my hand, you can clearly see the snowman shape, complete with scarf, hat and nose. I think Lush get it right 99.9% of the time with fragrances, and this definitely falls into that majority. Sweetly smelling of blackcurrant, but not so strongly that it makes you crave Ribena, the fragrance puts a smile on your face even when your mood is less than festive. Despite all this, I was left feeling disappointed with this product. The product itself is hard to use. Unlike normal Shower Jelly (of which I am a fan), this was quite hard to rip a piece of, but the use the whole snowman was incredibly slippery and altogether frustrating. Eventually the poor snowman even split in half! Once I managed to keep the snowman firmly in my grasp, I noticed the lather just wasn’t up to par and none of the glitter I was promised was visible. If this product was for scent alone, it would be a complete winner, but it definitely under-delivered on its promises. I think I’ll be sticking to the Christmas Shower Gels from now on. Maybe I’m just destined not to like snowmen.

Have you tried this Lush product? What are your feelings towards Snowmen?



  • Noooo how can you hate The Snowman?! It's one of my favourite Christmas films, it's so cute and I love the music. It actually reminds me of my childhood on Christmas Eve 😀
    I have this product but I haven't used it yet. I love the smell but I think it does look little slippery. Although I will have to wait until I use it to see! x

  • The last time at Lush I only saw the melting snowman. I don't really take baths but I was hard-pressed to leave the store without it. It just made me giggle! All I could hear in my head was "I'm melting"!

    The jelly, on the other hand, might be more up my alley! I will check it out next time I'm at a store.
