Zoella Beauty

So I don't usually do beauty posts but I recently picked up a few bits from the super-hyped Zoella Beauty line and I thought I would share my opinions. I've watched Zoe for a very long time now, almost 3 years, and I do really enjoy her videos so when I heard about her beauty line I knew I wanted to try some of the products. I was very skeptical as I am of most products released by YouTube stars, but I was pleasantly surprised. 

So I picked up the Soak Opera Bath Soak & Shower Cream and the Creamy Madly Dreamy body lotion about 2 weeks ago therefore I think I've really had a chance to test them out. I actually tweeted when I bought these and my lovely friend Niamh noticed and bought me the Lets Glow candle from the line for my birthday (birthday haul coming soon) so thank you Niamh ;)

Its all very reasonably priced which I was surprised but happy to see. It isn't just ripping you off because it's brand by a Internet superstar, It is affordable and that is one of the main reasons I bought it. Also, the packaging on everything in gorgeous. Its beautiful. I love it.

Firstly the shower cream. The smell wasn't what I expected, but it was a nice fresh yet still had floral hint. Its my kind of scent. As for the product itself, it works quick nicely although a little bit to thick and gloopy when you squeeze it out. But once you start using it, it lathers up well and leaves your skin soft. The smell doesn't linger of your skin, which can be good and bad, depending on if you want it to or whether you want to wear perfume, but personally, I don't like my shower gels to have to much of a scent so I really like this. I wouldn't say this is an unbelievable product and I probably am not going to repurchase it immediately, but it's lovely and I would recommend someone to try it. I shall be using it up and thoroughly enjoying it. 3.5/5

Next the body lotion. I never really buy/use body lotion, but I thought I should probably have one on the go all the time just in case so why not buy this one. I've been making an effort to use this and I have to say I'm impressed. It smells slightly different to the shower cream, a little more floral and perfumed, a little more luxury, which I love. As for the consistency, it's quite thick but not to heavy so its good for every day as well as at night. It sinks in pretty easily and quickly and the scent remains after for a while but its not strong. It thought It was going to be a bit crap but it's actually pretty brilliant. Overall, this is a winner for me, the best product I've tried from the line, and I will probably be repurchasing it when i finish. 4/5

Finally the candle. I haven't had this for as long so I've only lit it once. I like that is small as I never use up candles. It smells mainly floral but theres a little hint of vanilla, and its nice and fresh and calming. It doesn't kick of a load of scent when lit but you can still smell it in the room, subtle and fresh. I think its a scent that will be nice all year round and as a result I reckon i will get some use out of it. It takes me a pretty long time to use up candles so I shall have to see how I get on with it. But so far, I like. 3.5/5

Overall, I like this range. It isn't ground-breaking, but I do enjoy using the products and I would recommend you give them a go. You can buy it here
