Ironically, snowcake soap started this whole summer lush obsession.
As soon as the first onslaught of this year’s summer heat, my mind went — I have a winter soap here somewhere!!! I rummaged through drawers looking for a bar of white soap with gold dust on it.
If not for my super bright yet illogical idea that winter soap could work for summer, I wouldn’t have found out how Lush can make Philippine summer so much more bearable.
I haven’t experienced snow and winter so I don’t have anything to associate this with. My first whiff of this soap didn’t conjure images of snowmen, Game of Thrones, and the north pole.
On days when I was deliberately in a zen-like be-present mindset, it smelled like vanilla almond cake that is not straight up vanilla almond (I hope I made sense there). It had just the right amount of sweetness perfect for people who don’t like in-your-face sweet scents.
On other days, it smelled like the classic Ivory soap with hints of nuts and milk.

If there was Lush back in the roman times, Cleopatra might have chosen this over bathing in milk. The soap is very creamy but it doesn’t leave a slippery residue.
Unlike Honey I Washed The Kids Soap, this one is not drying.
It leaves its scent for a good few hours enough for me to forget that it’s summer, and humid, and not alone to publicly smell my forearm incessantly.
I would repurchase but the soap is seasonal so I have to wait til the Christmas season — or wait even longer for the holiday 50% off sale season.
If there’s one thing I don’t like, it’s the price. But you already know that with Lush soaps, you’re not buying just a soap — you’re buying an experience.
