Summer is once again upon us, which means only two things: occasional outbreaks of sun and a new Zoella Beauty range. The Zoella Beauty range being the more promising of the two.
Nevertheless, to go alongside the theme of sunny days and all things tropical, Zoe has delivered a refreshing new range, bursting with summer vibes and botanical hues in a collection of bath and body products that I just couldn’t wait to get my hands on in Superdrug. Not forgetting the new cherry lip oil, which is a first in the history of Zoella Beauty ranges. (eek!)
The range accompanied me on my summer vacation, giving me enough time to try and test each product whilst keeping my skin and lips hydrated in the sun. I can conclude that after a week of smelling fresher than freshly picked flowers and coconuts that this is my favourite scent (and range) yet! Which I had expected as I’m such a sucker for fresh scents! Amongst the botanical array of wonders lies 6 products and a beautiful leafy print makeup pouch. Now on to the product breakdown…
Beginning with the body of the collection, the spritz, the spray, the Botanic’EAU Body Mist. (£8) It’s a watery scent, perfect for misting in the morning then throwing in to my bag and topping up later in the day. I’m not the best with scents but I’d definitely class this one as unisex. It’s fresh and leafy with freesia and iris and mostly looks very sophisticated sat on display. It’s a big yes from me!
As for all the bubble bath lovers, this range doesn’t disappoint! The Drench Me Bath Soak (£6.95) is perfect for swirling in to a dreamy running bath, creating endless coconut infused bubbles from an adorable white carton. There’s nothing I love more than a bubble bath but if you fancy a little something different then the Lagoon Love Bath Milk (£3) will be perfect! It has the same tropical coconut & lychee scent but instead creates a milky smooth bath, resulting in silky hydrated skin all from a little pink sachet.
For the shower lovers or anyone looking for a new product to use when shaving your legs comes the Make a Splash Moisturising Body Wash. (£6) Again maintaining the coconut and lychee scent, the moisturising body wash is the perfect two-in-one product for days when there’s no time for moisturiser or what you simply need that extra boost of hydration. Not to mention how perfect it is for prolonging silky smooth legs after shaving.
In order to keep the rest of my skin just as soft, the Quench Me Body Sorbet (£7)is perfect. It’s a new formula as apposed to last years Body Pudding, however, just a small scoop of the new gel formula is all you require for an instant hydration shot and also creates a perfect base for the Botanic’EAU mist to boost longevity. The lips have also been included this year with the new cherry scented So Soft Lip Oil (£5) It’s the perfect little handbag edition for topping up on hydration throughout the day and reminds me a lot of my much-loved Clarins Lip Comfort Oil except a little less pricey. I may have found myself an excellent dupe! To finalise my thoughts in case they aren’t already clear, I totally love this range! It will make the perfect gift or spa-day addition but most of all I love how versatile it is for both boys and girls. Props to Zoe for yet another incredible range!
