Lush Snow Fairy Naked Shower Gel Had Better Not Be Replacing the Real One!

I will cut someone if Lush Snow Fairy Naked Shower Gel is replacing the old shower gel. Seriously, they’ll blood.

You see, every year I stock up on my loved Lush Snow Fairy Shower Gel. It launches but once a year around the Holidays and doesn’t return again until the next year. It’s deliciously fruity candy fluff scent is what dreams are made of.

Anyway, ahem, Lush decided long ago they’d go naked with many of their products. This means full on nudity. No bags, no wrapping, just as nude and as naked as they can serve their products up. That means if you order from the UK they’ll throw your sh1T in a box with some biodegradable peanuts and call it a day. I love my environment and the planet Earth as much as the next person. I recycle and I try really hard to reduce my carbon footprint when possible. But people, if you have bath bombs shipping from the UK to the US you need to wrap them up tight so they don’t break. Tossing them in a box sans paper, well, it creates a mess. Also, they end up sticky and gross in the process if they happen to go from a warm to a cool environment or vice versa.

In a recent turn of events, Lush Snow Fairy has gone naked. Basically, the new “naked shower gel” is shaped like a bottle of Snow Fairy but is actually a solid soap. Ok, cute, I’ll buy it. However, remember kids, Lush Godmother was around prior to all this and it was scented like Snow Fairy as well. Hell, I’d buy anything scented like Snow Fairy. That’s a fact. And I’ll buy this too.

But I HOPE it isn’t replacing the normal shower gel because I prefer shower gel over soap any day of the week. The good news? This was released in the Lush Kitchen which means it likely won’t stick around nor replace my beloved shower gel. Right?!

Let’s not get too naked now guys.

What do you think of “naked” shower gel?

Essentially sounds like a bar of soap to me! Shrug!

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.

    The lush U.S. and U.K. instagram feeds have pictures of both the solid ones and the bottled gels

    How on earth can they get away with calling that shower gel? It’s solid soap, there is nothing gel about it. Maybe just bring back Gothmother soap and call it a day , Lush.
    Just another reason I’m so done with their brand. I can’t go to their stores because their sales practices are way too aggressive (and I’ve worked retail!) and they’re constantly discontinuing products, do they even have regular core products because it feels like everything is seasonal.

      LOL exactly. Just give me Godmother back, it’s easier ๐Ÿ˜€ The SAs are WAYYYY aggressive!

  • Jules

    Bar soap (((shudder)))

    But now I am curious about the bath gel…but I’ve put myself on a strict NO BUY until I use up my 10 year backlog.

    • Isabella Muse

      take yourself off that ban and get yourself some snow fairy. Thank me later ๐Ÿ˜€

    OK, so let’s assume someone buys fragile products (like bath bombs) and after being tossed around in these eco-friendly boxes, they (of course) arrive destroyed. Obviously, the next step is returning it. Doesn’t it use up fuel (UPS/Fed Ex vehicle, not to mention the transport from the UK by, I assume, plane) to do that? Doesn’t that negate any environmental benefits of that sparse packaging??
    (And yes, that store has some guerilla sales tactics. No matter what I say- I take showers, not baths; I have eczema and can’t use many products; they’ve got an answer! I just grab what I need and make a beeline for the register!)

    • Isabella Muse

      they are pretty good replacing items that are broke ๐Ÿ™‚ No need to send back!

  • Diane

    I’m all for aavingthe environment too but girl I’m with you shower gel > solid soap

  • Michelle

    Why doesn’t a company like lush just reuse?? Nothing is better than just refilling bottles you already have. Seems a heck of a lot smarter than changing the product. (that is now a solid bar of soap, not a shower gel). Either at their shops they could have fill stations or you could send in your old bottle and they refill it for new (like milk delivery used to be). Reusing is a heck of a lot better than recycling as the pollution that burning down plastic creates it pretty bad and toxic. I just shake my head at companies like lush that “attempt” to be environmentally friendly but do not just have some type of refill strategy. Silly.

    I just watched a how-to on how to use soap. They’re selling soap as “naked body wash.”

    Small things and large, 2017 is dumb. I hope you get exactly the body washes you want, Muse!

    • Isabella Muse

      LOL ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m so confused. thankfully they do have bottles of it but I got worried a sec there!

  • Jennifer

    I actually looking forward to this. I will not give up my beloved SF Gel, but this will be a fun addition. As long as it’s not over $20.00. I will pass then. It really is just bar soap. But LUSH has a very high opinion of themselves. And any SA out there, BACK OFF. We don’t like being accosted when we walk in the store. Sorry, had to rant. I’m in Tallahassee, FL. Irma needs to go away. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    As someone who is still sitting on a tiny amount of hoarded Glogg, I feel your Lush frustration.
