Read to the end to learn how you can enter my giveaway…
Yesterday I got my Feel Unique box in the mail full of Zoella Beauty goodies. Ever since I heard Zoe was going to be releasing a new line of products I was swirling with anticipation. However, when I heard it was going to be a collection based around #JellyAndGelato I was a bit disappointed. I’m not a huge fan of sweet scents, but still wanted to give it a chance. I embarrassingly squealed when I saw the delivery man pull up. I’m glad only my four month old son was around to hear me!
As soon as I opened up the package I was hit in the face with the new scent. At first glance I was in love. At first sniff… Well, I was undecided. I quickly rushed upstairs to take some pictures for this blog, and then moved on to film a video catching my first impressions. Click here to watch. But for those of you who would rather read my thoughts then watch them, this is for you!
Can we take a minute before we get into the products to admire this G-O-R-G-E-O-U-S packaging. Seriously though, it’s phenomenal.
GELAT’EAU – Body Mist
I thought it made sense to start with the body mist. Simply because every other product in this range was based off of this fragrance. The immediate thought I had when I smelled the body spray was, “APPLES”, and after thinking about it a bit more the one word I would use to describe it is JUICY. It has notes of pomegranate, cream, and elder flower(does anyone actually know what that is). On a scale of 1-10 I would give this fragrance a 7 1/2. It is my favorite scent Zoe has released so far because ‘fresh and fruity’ is right up my alley.
SHOWER SHAKE – Moisturizing Body Wash
Shower Shake was one of the products I was most excited to try. My skin is outrageously dry, so any body wash I use needs to have some moisturizing benefit to it. I have tried Zoe’s other shower gels and they are WAY too drying. When I tried a bit of Shower Shake I was amazed. It sunk right in and rinsed off leaving a beautiful silkiness to my skin.
BODY PUDDING – Body Cream
When I opened up Body Pudding I had completely forgotten that it had pink beads in it, so that was a fun surprise. The fragrance in this product is quite strong, and stayed on my skin for a few hours. I was really happy that a little bit of Body Pudding goes a LOOONG way. It feels like this has a water base because it is very lightweight and sinks right in. I was pleasantly surprised with how much I liked this product.
SHOWER SAUCE – Body Wash
Now this is a product I purchased solely to let you guys know my thoughts. Truth be told after I tried Shower Shake, I will probably never use this. It is far too drying for me! Although Shower Sauce has the same scent as the rest of the collection, there is a real soapy note to it that I’m not a big fan of. Out of all the products in this collection, this is the biggest bust.
CREAMY SCRUB – Body Scrub
I’ll be the first to admit that I am an exfoliator junkie. It’s the only body care product that I could never buy enough of. So when I saw Zoella Beauty was launching a moisturizing body scrub, I couldn’t resist. Now I was surprised by the color of this scrub when I opened it up. It’s a mango orangey-yellow, and the texture of it is glorious. The sugar grains in it are very gentle, so if you’re looking for an intense body scrub to deal with ingrown hairs, this probably isn’t for you. However, if you’re like me and have sensitive dry skin, this will be your jam. It leaves behind a softness that sticks around long after your bath. I’m pleased to say that the Creamy Scrub held up to my high expectations.
PINK BATH WAFERS – Moisturizing Bath Fizzer
Pink Bath Wafers are the reason I was squeaking at the delivery man when he pulled up. I ADORE Lush’s Bath Melts(now luxury bath oils)! And when I heard about a moisturizing bath fizzer I was sold. Sadly these didn’t live up to the hype. When I tried these out they left behind a very strong fragrance, and the bath water was slightly silkier then normal but just barely. For this dry skin girl, I need a products that packs more of a punch.
BATH FROSTING – Bath Milk Powder
BATH FROSTING IS AMAZING!!! In case that isn’t clear enough, this is my favorite product in the Jelly and Gelato Collection. It is everything that I wanted out of the Pink Bath Wafers and more! You take a sachet and pour it out under warm running water, where it dissolves instantly. This milk powder makes your bath water incredibly luxurious! There isn’t too much of a scent left behind in the water, but the texture of my skin was drastically different after using this. I will definitely be purchasing more.
