This years Snowcake product is a bath bomb called Perle De Sel. I was glad to see this replacement of the traditional Lush snowcake Christmas bomb ‘Lush Pud’. I quite like this all white version vs. the brown color of the previous years.
Perle De Sel has a lovely bit of gold nuggets in the outside middle of the bomb.
Snowcake is a very mild scent, having almond benzoin and rose together makes a light, comforting scent. It smells like a cross between snow and something yummy.
Lush has made many products throughout the years in this scent and this years product is a most elegant version in my opinion.
As it dissolves a lovely shade of aqua blue spews out of the bomb making the water shimmer with the addition of blue and silver sparkle.
I would but another one but i wouldnt stock up on them.
Here’s a pic with my vintage Lush Snowcake perfume.
Review: I got a fresh one once and it changed my mind about the Pud. True, it leaves a brown ring to clean up. True, it makes the water poo brown. Turn off the lights, light a candle and use this. It smells like spice cake. And it lasts. I bathed my twins in this on Christmas and they smelled like two little spice cake sweeties all weekend. This is grand to combine with Christmas Cracker bubble bar, Orange and Spice soap or with a Jack Froth or Marziban bubble bar. It’s like bathing in Christmas desert.
Lush Times description: Looks like a pudding, smells like a pudding, fizzes like a spicy Bath Ballistic. Fill your bath with warm water and drop in the Ballistic for a fizzing, fragrant, relaxing soak.
Notes: The newer ones are much lighter brown. almost tan colored, and they smell more like Snowcake soap then spicy Christmas pudding. I like the original ones way better because it was spicy.
Review: This was made to smell like “Snowcake” soap. It’s a scrumptious scent of light roses and almond paste, like Marzipan cookies. The ony things I use with a Marzibain bubble bar (so as not to sully it’s sublimlely scrummy scent) is “Snowcake” soap of course and also like to use it and then spritz on some Snowcake perfume.
2001 Yuletide LT description: This Marzibain is one of those Lush specials for people with a sweet tooth who don’t want to eat too much sugar; it’s a sweet “cake” of bubble bath from the bubble bar that smells just like marzipan with the added bonus fragrance of rose and fruity cassie buds (same scent as Snowcake and Big Ed). For piles of white, fluffy, marzipan scented bubbles crumble the whole thing into the running bathwater; it will satisfy your craving for sweet things with no guilt whatsoever.
From the 2002 Yuletide LT: The Marzibain is back, smelling like extra tasty marzipan, the same as last year but not as crumbly like almond icing, more solid like my grandma’s Christmas almond buns (you wuoldn’t have wanted to eat one of these either). You pronounce it to rhyme with marzipan (bain, French for bath = funny Lush pun) Marziban not Marzibane, or else it’s not funny at all is it?

See my demo video below. Initially Cyanide Pill has a fruity creamy, comforting kind of scent, then comes a bitter almond note, almost makes me wrinkle my nose. Luckily I smell a vague cherryish note too.
There is a silver glitter in the middle of this yellow bath bomb, which disperses into the water and looks pretty and glittery. Lush North America made a soap in 2015 called “Hands of Friendship’ which shares it’s scent with the Cyanide Pill. Lush also made a bath bomb called ’13 States’ with the same scent. I took a pic of them below. Additionally Lush also made a silver bath oil called “Delight” (I took a pic below) in the same scent.
When Lush had a gallery space built to introduce their new Gorilla III range of perfumes from their new “Death and Decay” series, they had a gallery room for each perfume they were introducing, including site and sound to match the perfume. Cyanide perfume was one of them gallery displays. However Lush never released the Cyanide perfume, turns out they only used the scent for the gallery display. We’re told that this new Cyanide pill bath bomb has the scent of that Gorilla III ‘Cyanide’ gallery room. I’ll have to try another one to make sure but i’m not sure i like the smell of this one. 2015 3.50 gpb / $5.75
Turns out I dont hate it, but i dont love it. It sure is cute though, looking like a cyanide pill.
I took this picture below of the two Pills that Lush has made over the years. 😊
The Lush bath oil in my picture below called ‘Delight‘ has the same scent.
These bath bombs below, including Cyanide Pill, were first introduced in 2014, at the time they were exclusive to the Lush Oxford Street Superstore.
Lush description: Slide into the danger zone Caution! This intoxicating almond bomb should wear a warning sign. Detonate in water for a mercury silver slick.
Here i show it dissolving to show the silver in the middle.
This cute Bear is the 2021 version of Snowcake soap. But this year the name is actually different. It’s called “Polar Bear”.
Lush makes their classic Snowcake soap in a completely different design every year.
i’ll add all the different looks here.
for 2020 it looks like this:
This year Snowcake smells even yummier than it has in past years. Sometimes it has smelled kind of like Playdoh. I don’t know what Lush added to it this year but it smells more like vanilla icing. or marzipan fruit.
If you get a good, fresh piece you smell an almond paste and roses scent. It’s delicate but scrummy. Snow cake soap has particularly creamy lather. Lush has introduced Snowcake soap every Christmas for many, many years.
Lush Description: Hand and body soap: Smells like the delicious almond icing on your cake: feels like almond mousse on your skin.
Here’s what it looked like in 2017. It’s Gold on the top.
Even more, i love the Lush ‘Marzibain’ bubble bar which Lush made in the Snowcake scent. It’s a cream colored bar with an almond on top. Makes gorgeous, volumunous, creamy bubbles. I also am very fond of the dusting powder in this scent called “Snow on Snow’. It’s delicate, and soft, like sweet fallen snow. Lush has only made the powder twice. Lush first made the Snow on Snow powder for forum members only.
The 2016 Version called ‘Snowcastle’
Here’s what it looked like Christmas 2018
and my review of it below.
A new version of the classic Lush Christmas ‘Snowcake’ soap. Lush has been carrying the tradition of various different versions of their classic Snowcake soap since the early 2000’s.
This year Lush went all out and made a gourmet soap in the Snowcake scent, but with an additional squishy, yummy looking ‘saucey’ topping. It looks like fruit and Oh my goodness I want a whole wheel lol. This is a gourmet soap this year with extra moisturizing properties.
