Update: this product is being rereleased for the 2011 & 2012 holiday season!
What it does:
When Mark and Mo went to look for Christmas inspiration, they chanced upon a giant snowglobe in the middle of Hyde Park that you could climb inside and be part of a festive scene! Mo was instantly convinced she needed to make an equally spectacular frosty globe of soap, with a refreshing lemon myrtle and grapefruit scent to lift your spirits on a cold dark day. The whole cake looks a beautifully serene snow globe with dots of white ‘snow’ throughout. It’s a loving nod to a more traditional Christmas this year.
Although this is a refreshing citrus soap, it has a different blend of sharper citrus oils to give you an invigorating wash morning or night. We’ve used organic lemon myrtle for a fresh, slightly herbal citrus note, and lemongrass to complement the fragrance. This soap goes perfectly in a bath cocktail with Uluru, Avobath or You’ve Been Mangoed to shake the cobwebs off your tired brain.
$5.95/3.3 oz in the US, 1.95GBP/100g in the UK, and 650JPY/100g in Japan
Update: the updated prices for the 2011 holiday season are $7.95/3.3 oz in the US, 2.50 GBP/100g in the UK. The price is still 650JPY/100g in Japan, but remember that the JPY is much stronger now.
Scent: VERY citrus-y. The lemongrass scents seemed the strongest. This herbal scent helps the soap from smelling like kitchen cleanser.
– I really liked this scent. It would be great for a morning shower, and I also enjoyed it in the evening.
– Like all the Lush soaps I have tried so far, it has a good lather and does not dry out my skin.
– unfortunately, I do not know what the white part is like since my piece didn’t include any white bits
– I’m not clear on why Lush considers this to be a winter scent. It really reminds me of summer!
Would I repurchase?: Yes! I liked the scent a lot. I wish Lush would also release this in the summer!
Hope that helped!
I have reviewed this item, even though it is no longer available on Lush’s website, because they may be repromoted in the future.
