Tried and Tested... Lush Snow Fairy

Photobucket

Snow Fairy is undoubtedly my favourite Lush product and as it's a limited edition item for the festive season I thought now would be the perfect time to share a review in case you wanted to try it yourself.

It's a candy pink coloured glimmering shower gel which can also be used to wash your hair. It looks sparkly in the bottle but doesn't leave you covered in glitter! 

Only a small amount is required as it lathers up easily meaning a bottle lasts a while which is perfect if like me you are trying to ration your supply until you can get your hands on some more next Christmas!           

It has a sweet smell reminiscent of pear drops and candy floss, and instantly puts a smile on my face! The scent stays with you all day. 

I'm yet to discover anyone who doesn't like it once they've tried it!

It retails at £3.25 for 100g, £5.95 for 250g and £9.95 for 500g and you can buy online at Lush

These are some other Lush products which also feature snow fairy's magical scent...

New this year the magic wand is designed to be waved through water to create sweet smelling bubbles. The wand can be left to dry then used again and again.

This sweet smelling pink lip tint is made from sherbet, dried raspberries and icing sugar, it sounds good enough to eat! It also contains extra virgin coconut oil, shea butter, cupuacu butter and murumuru butter to revitalise your lips after being out in the cold winter weather.

An ideal gift for any snow fairy fan, this set contains a 100g bottle of snow fairy along with a piece of the popular Christmas Angel Delight soap shaped like a star and a shimmy shimmy glittery massage bar perfect for those Christmas nights out.

The Little Black Dress

The little black dress is one of the ultimate staple items in most women's wardrobes. It makes an ideal workwear outfit teamed with a cardigan and some flats and can easily be transformed ready for a night out by adding a pair of heels, a smart blazer and some statement jewellery. 

With Christmas parties to attend when could be a better time to invest in a new LBD which can be worn throughout the New Year!

These are my top 10 little black dresses available on the high street now

I love the studded detailing on the Oasis shift dress and the jewelled collar on the Rare dress. The glittery dress from Dorothy Perkins and beaded lace dress from Matalan are perfect for adding your own accessories to transform them. 

A little black dress can be styled in numerous ways and will see you through season after season. 

Do you have a go-to LBD?
