Lush Snow Globe - Mini Review!

Today I'm reviewing the Lush Snow Globe soap. I bought this about two weeks ago and have been using it every day since! It's a solid soap, not a gel, and I bought approximately 100g of it. This is a seasonal product and only comes out around the holiday period *sadface*.
But the good thing about that is that from boxing day until they sell out, all of Lush's Christmas items go half price! I know Lush can sometimes seem a little pricey, but I think it's worth every penny! It's an arctic blue color with bubbles (globes) of white in it. This is what it looks like:



As for ease of use, it's very easy to use. It isn't one of those rock hard soaps that's impossible to cut, but it isn't too soft either. I cut mine into 30g pieces (approximately of course) for use in the shower, so the whole thing doesn't melt and so I don't have to use the rest of it all right away (this letting me try out other products without loading up my shower) and put it in a bowl outside of my shower when not using it.
I like to use my Soap & Glory ScrubGloves with this, which helps to lather it up beautifully and also makes a little go a very long way.

I find this soap lathers really nicely, it creates a rich creamy foam of bubbles, and get me squeaky clean!

Now onto the scent....
I absolutely ADORE the scent of this. To me, it's smells just like sherbert lemons! I remember I used to have Sherbert Lemons and Rubarb & Custards as a special treat as a child and loved them. Sherbert Lemons just fizzed in your mouth and when I read Harry Potter and found out that Dumbledore likes them, i felt soooo cool haha :)
It's the perfect citrus scent - sweet, but not overly sweet, it smells clean, but none of that horible citrusy cleaning product smell at all. It's simply perfect. I'm not usually crazy about citrusy scents because they tend to smell like toilet cleaning detergent or whatever, but this one is really amazing. I'm obsessed with this soap! 
The scent lasts on my skin for a few hours after I get out of the shower if I don't use a body butter. However, I usually do (I love The Body Shop Spiced Vanilla) and my body butter is scented so it covers the light scent. It doesn't dry out my skin at all and it's definitely refreshing! :)
Definitely a must try - A new favorite, along with my Lush Comforter :)


Scent: ♥♥♥♥♥*
Texture: ♥♥♥*
Bath Effects: ♥* - This is a shower product, so it doesn't change the color of your water or anything, obviously. But it lathers nicely!
Price: ♥♥♥* - I got mine half off, so it was a great deal! I would pay full price though if I had to.
