I know I'm about three years behind on this one, but these little goodies have been sat in my cupboard, gradually being used since about August. My bad. This is one of those posts that got pushed further and further back, but today I'm FINALLY sharing my thoughts on this Zoella beauty range.
Sweet Inspirations is the only Zoella beauty range that I can honestly say I've been excited about. I love the appearance of them, I love the fact that they've all got sweet scents, and the range came out when I really started getting into her videos. Despite my excitement, I was a little put off by the prices, so I narrowed my choices down to 3 (because hey, who doesn't like a lil' Superdrug 3 for 2 haul every now and then?).
The Sweet Inspirations body mist is by FAR my favourite. The packaging feels fairly luxe, especially with the gold top and the fact that it's made with thick, weighty glass. This was my scent of the summer, and made for the perfect spritz before heading out for a (Pokemon GO fueled) summer stroll. This was also the product that I thought was most reasonable for its price. It comes in at £8 for a 45ml bottle.
The other two were a little disappointing, I won't lie. I had heard masses of wonderful things about the bath latte, and the name of it just increased my excitement. I don't think all the hype around it helped, but when I used it I just found it a bit 'meh'. The packaging was a total contrast to the spritz, and felt a little cheap, especially as even the gold coloured top was made out of plastic, not metal as I had expected. The formula itself is something that just doesn't work for me. I found it really hard to create bubbles with it, it's a little more thick and gloopy than I expected and it's a bit tricky to actually get under the running water. Having said all of that however, it does make my skin feel soft. I'm just not sure it was worth the £6 price tag.
And finally, we have the bath fizzers. These were in themselves a really nice product. I just found that they weren't for me. I love seeing them fizzing away in my bath, and they make your water that extra bit softer, but personally, I want a bath bomb in my tub. They're something that I now realise I never would have got on with too well, no matter how they smelt or made my skin feel. I'm not a bathing kinda person, so if I do have one it's a real treat, and I tend to use a nice LUSH bath bomb or one from bomb cosmetics. These just don't quite have the same effect, but they're not meant to. These are £5, and you get around 4/5 uses out of the bar, which makes them pretty good for the cost! If you like a nightly bath, these would make a really cute little treat to pop in.
Have you tried any of the range out? What did you think?
