Last night I attended the Irish Beauty Blog Awards 2016 in Dublin city. I wore a dressy casual outfit and *shock! horror!* I actually wore colours. That’s right! I stepped away from my usual uniform of all black clothing to try something different from a change. Summer is all about wearing bright colours so I wanted to step out of my comfort zone and wear an all-colour outfit for once.
I have always been drawn to pretty pastel colours and I really enjoyed wearing this combination of baby pink and baby blue shades together, paired with some light grey jeans. I kept my accessories simple by just wearing a beautiful statement hairband that really completed my look for the night.

This past Christmas I received a little LUSH surprise that included the coveted Snow Fairy Shower Gel! This was my first experience trying a LUSH shower gel and I was excited to test out this cute pink bottle of joy! Unfortunately this product is exclusively available around the Christmas period.
It is most certainly worth savoring if you get one as a gift or buying it in bulk if you really love it.
My first impression of the Snow Fairy shower gel was that it smelled absolutely amazing, like cotton candy but the scent isn’t overpowering like most cotton candy scents can be. I use this every time I get in the shower (luckily, I ended up getting two of these 100g bottles for Chrtismas!) and it’s creamy texture allows it to lather up really well and it feels lovely on my skin.
The gel itself has a pearl sheen and contains tiny little specks of glitter to leave your skin glowing after each shower or bath. According to my research, it is one of the biggest sellers at LUSH and apparently, Snow Fairy can also double up as a shampoo! I haven’t tried that out yet personally so I can’t vouch for it as a shampoo. However, a lot of the products from LUSH are incredibly versatile and can be used in many different ways as a part of your beauty routine.
Pro’s of the LUSH Snow Fairy Shower Gel:
- It smells amazing & lathers up beautifully
- Leaves my skin feeling soft and smelling great
- Makes shower-time more fun!
Con’s of the LUSH Snow Fairy Shower Gel:
- You can only buy it during the Christmas season *cries*
Are LUSH products cruelty free?
YAASSSS GURL. Of Course!
Overall thoughts on the product:
I would recommend trying Snow Fairy, it’s cute and contains carrageenan seaweed extract which helps soften the skin, even during cold weather. The packaging is really pretty and even the little 100g sample I got as a part of a LUSH Christmas gift set is still lasting me ages.
