Lush Fairy Tale Review

Fairytale: a story about fairies; told to amuse children

Lush Fairy Tale: a little holiday mouse to scrub all over your body to get it soft and sweetly scented for Christmas!

Lush Fairy Tale 1


The Muse reviewed Lush Sugar Scrubs prior to this but she had to show you this darling little Mouse! Lush Snow Fairy is one of the latest sugar scrubs available for the Holiday season, sniff I’m terribly upset it’s only available for a limited time.

Shaped like a mouse with a tail and two little white chocolates for ears you can scrub this little guy all over your body for smoother elbows, knees, and rough bits and bobs.

Lush Fairy Tale 2

How do you use him?

You’ll have to break him into pieces and scrub him around your body…I know it’s heart breaking but you’ll have to break him to use! He starts out as a grainy scrub but he quickly foams up into a moisturizing lather as he scrubs away rough spots. He smells of strawberry and cream (mostly he smells of Lush Sultana Soap to this Muse) and makes you smell just as delicious.

As far as this Muse is concerned he’s the perfect little treat for tucking into a stocking or two for the Holiday season as he makes a unique little gift.

Loves ’em!

Total Muse Approval for purchase for getting those rough spots ready for the Holdiays!

Available now from Lush.

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    break him up??? *gasp

    can’t i just use it whole?

    btw, is it only good for one use then?

    • the Muse

      lol hannah I know right? It’s entirely up to you but I normally break him apart to use. It’s good for either one super lovely spoiled use or you can put him in a baggie and use a little at a time. Maybe if you press it you can get 3-4 showers from him πŸ™‚

    I just tried this guy a few nights ago and have enough left for at least one more shower. I need to stock up. I love how the patches feel smooth much better then the green scrub imo. Combined with buffy I don’t look like an aligator for a few days – yay ! πŸ™‚

    • the Muse

      hey melissa πŸ˜€ he’s a cute little guy isn’t he? thank you jebus for buffy πŸ˜€ my skin wouldn’t survive without her πŸ™‚ I miss SJG sigh….


    If you go to the 1st post on my blog, I was JUST at Lush and didn’t see this cute little guy. I guess it’s an excuse to go back, huh?

    • the Muse

      awesome shadow :-D!!!!!!!!!!!! I’ll visit in a bit πŸ˜€ did you haul hard? great excuse to go back! πŸ˜€ we all need a fairy tale in the shower and a happily ever after!

  • Gemma

    I went into lush yesterday after reading your review of BIG shampoo. I ended up buying loads of gift sets and i have a few of these fairy tails. I dont want to break the poor little fella, However the Sa told me if you mix some of the fairy tail with the snow fairy shower gel it becomes an all over body treatment. I cant wait to try it out. Thanks for all the great reviews Muse x

    • the Muse

      hey gemma how fun!!!!!! wish I could have came πŸ˜€ god love Lush! πŸ˜€ I love the idea of mixing the two! I felt the same he’s so cute I didn’t want to break him SNIFF! You’re so lucky as you’re in the UK Lush is a tad on the cheaper side your side of the pond πŸ˜€

      Thanks for the great comment hun!

  • Ricci

    I bought this last month! I love the smell, and it last a long time I keep the broken pieces in the lush tins and use a little at a time. The eyes I think are oieces of bath melts!

    • the Muse

      hi ricci! yay glad you’re liking πŸ˜€ I used an entire one eep! hehe. but yes you can place the other bits in a plastic bag or tin for more uses πŸ™‚

  • glitter princess

    my xmas lush list which i got today contains:

    1)Lush Candy Cane Bubble Bar- althought I love the smell of this the bubbles last abit longer then the star melt but I think the snow fairy gel is better value for money in my opinion.
    2)Lush Angel’s Delight Soap- smells delightful good enuf to eat
    3)Lush Fairy Tail Sugar Scrub- Feels lovely and great for exfoliting just sad to break thislittle dude up LOL!
    4)Lush Snow Fairy Shower Gel- Stocked up on this as im addicted
    5) Lush star Melt- althought I love the smell of this the bubbles didnt last long which was dissappointing.
    6)Lush Snow Fairy Solid perfum- Again loving the smell but it only last;s about 2hours max! but its lovely!!

    • the Muse

      ahhhhh awesome hauling glitter princess! Jealous!!!!!!!!!! πŸ˜€ love love Angel’s Dlight so glad it’s around year round πŸ™‚

  • Kay

    Is Lush really THAT awesome? I`m still deciding whether or not to purchase πŸ˜› I may purchase it, but what is the best face scrub? πŸ™‚

    • the Muse

      I think so kay πŸ˜€ I use Ocean Salt and Sweet Japanese Girl but sadly they did away with the Japanese girl so sad! Ocean salt is good if you have strong skin but for sensitive skin types def not a good one πŸ˜€ they sadly don’t have a slew of facial scrubs from Lush!

      • Ricci

        My Boyfriend loves herbalism, he loves what it does to his face. I use the Queen of Complexion Soap for my face and hands and wow ,simply amazing. My Face is ultra sensitive….

        • the Muse

          I really love Queen of Hearts too Ricci πŸ˜€ I use Angels on Bare Skin in place of herbalism good stuff πŸ™‚

  • Catherine

    Hey Muse!
    Don’t you think it smells more like yummy yummy yummy shower gel rather than sultana of soap???

    • the Muse

      yes catherine somewhat but I also get a little sultana in there too…am I nuts? πŸ™‚

      • Ricci

        Nah, but I also dont smell sultana ,however sultana is lovely, my boyfriend loves that scent

  • Bonnie

    Muse, did you see that as of today Snowcake Shower Gel is back?! For a very limited time, online only, the site says. Woo-hoo!!! As if I haven’t hauled enough Lush lately…but I couldn’t resist that! πŸ™‚
