As I mentioned in my previous Tanya Burr review, it's great to see You Tubers having a wonderful success, of the back of making beauty videos, it's very inspirational and proves again, that dreams can come true if you work hard and focus. Zoella Beauty is created by Youtuber Zoe Sugg and was released last year, it consists of a body line and range of make-up bags that represent her bubbly and infectious personality. Here's my thoughts.
Have you used any of the Zoella Beauty products, do you rate them or hate them? If you love them, what's your favourite product from the line? Leave a comment below or tweet me.
As I mentioned above the line consists of a range of body products and make-up bags. Each product is affordably priced to fit in with Zoe's teenage audience and has a set price point of either £5 or £8. Zoella Beauty can be found in Superdrug and Feel Unique.
The range is made up of the following:
- Creamy Madly Dreamy Body Lotion £5 - 160ml
- Soak Opera Bath Soak & Shower Cream £5 - 490ml
- Fizz Bar £5 - 200g
- Blissful Mistful £8 - 45ml
- Eyes Beauty Bag (Mint) - £8
- Guinea Pig Beauty Bag (Coral) - £8
- Just Say Yes Beauty Bag (Light Peach and Gold) - £8
The one thing I noticed the most about this range is the beautiful quality of the products and accessories for the price. Each item from the body line is beautifully packaged in a cream
bottle or tube with accents of coral, lace and bronze detailing. The wording of every body product is super cute and fun, to appeal to her younger fans. The make-up bags are excellent quality and are made from a wipe clean fabric, printed with Zoella's signature and recognisable trademark pictures. Each bag is a really decent size, perfect for storing anything from, make-up to cotton wool, camera cables to stationery.
Application and LongevityAll the products are hygienically sealed, which is good to see. Both the Body lotion and bath and shower cream contain a mix of Aloe Vera, Shea butter and Vitamin E and have a matching pleasant, subtle, fresh smell, which is not too overpowering.
Soak Opera is a lovely everyday shower gel or bath soak and lathers up really nicely. This is also a decent size, a lot larger than your average shower or bath gel, so it lasts a while too, providing your the only one using it!
Creamy, Madly, Dreamy is a great everyday moisturiser and has a medium buttery consistency. The lotion sinks in more ales straight away and does the job at moisturising well, but for me they didn't leave my skin feeling super soft all day long.
I have to say these are very subtly scented, which means they don't last all day. You can defiantly smell them initially, but if you're after and like a scented shower gel and matching body lotion, then these are maybe not for you.
Overall ThoughtsThe Zoella Beauty line is highly focused on the tween and teenage market, bringing together a range of products that completely reflect Zoe's personality. It shows Zoe's has really put a lot of thought and effort into each product, re-creating a line that is aimed at her younger audience of fans, who want that little piece of affordable Zoella branded merchandise, that they can take away for themselves.
The collection as a whole is a beautiful thought out capsule collection, with gorgeous, cute packaging to match. The price points are affordable, meaning every girl can buy at least something from the line. In my opinion if your going to go for one thing, spend the £2 extra and get one of the make-up bags, as these will last for ages and can be used for so many different things, plus they look pretty displayed in your make-up room or bedroom too.
I'm not sure I would re-purchase the lotion again, but would most probably buy the shower gel, as it's a great size and a nice, not too overpowering scent. I'm excited to see if Zoe will expand on her line and if so, what she will bring out next?
I award the Zoella Beauty line 4 out of 5
