Lush Snow Fairy Body Conditioner was one of the products in the Lush “Snow Fairy” gift box.
The product description on Lush’s website reads as follows: “Candy floss water sets the scene, evoking the excitement of enchanting fairgrounds and disappearing bites of sugary fluff. To enter this otherworldly carnival, you need only step into the shower. Smooth the rich, buttery conditioner over your entire body and as you do, you’ll rise above it all on a ferris wheel of saccharine, fairy tale sweetness. Organic cocoa butter, mango and avocado swirl together to hydrate and soften the skin. When you’re ready, rinse off and return to Earth.”
Now, being a Lush “newbie”, I had no idea what Snow Fairy Body Conditioner was. I assumed that it was a body butter or body lotion, but boy, was I wrong! Thankfully, I read the instructions on the label before I used it, as it needs to be used in-shower and then rinsed off.
After not being all that taken with the Snow Fairy Shower Gel, I wasn’t expecting too much, which was just as well. The Snow Fairy Body Conditioner has a consistency of a thick lotion (or a thin cream) and is pink in colour, with a hint of shimmer on top. It’s easy to spread and massage over the skin before simply rinsing off.
It did moisturise my skin a little, but I still felt the need to use a body butter afterwards, as my skin didn’t feel as hydrated or moisturised as it would have if I’d used a body lotion or body butter.
Sadly, so far, my Lush experience has not really been a good one. I’m not blown away by their Snow Fairy products, and they’re not all that cheap either. I definitely won’t be purchasing any more Snow Fairy Body Conditioner, I think I’ll stick to using my usual body butter.
