Beauticology Just Desserts Review

When Kizzy of The Dainty Dolls House sent me Cafe de Bain and I Love products, she also sent me this cute Beauticology Just Desserts sampler. Beauticology (subdivision of Baylis & Harding) is another UK drugstore brand, that get's a "it's-so-cute" "i-can't-believe-this-is-a-drugstore-brand" and "oh-my-gosh-what-a-low-price" award! The theme for this sampler is macarons! I love them! They give you raspberry cream body butter and strawberry macaron body wash. My thoughts are below. I was checking to see where you can purchase their products. They seem to be at Tesco (UK) and skitter skatter on Amazon. They use to be at ASOS, but I don't know if they just carry their stuff around Christmas time or what. BTW Beauticology has the cutest Christmas stuff! So this brand is not easily attainable in the States :( But I wanted to showcase it anyway...because it is GIRLY GIRL TO THE MAX!

supersweet(run & buy it) sweet(really good,buy it) bittersweet(ok, issues)not sweet(not good,don't buy this stuff)

Beauticology Strawberry Macaron Body Wash - Sweet

Yes, please! This little bottle of goodness is scented just like ripened strawberries. It did not smell artificial. I loved it. It also lathers up really well and rinses away cleanly. The only thing that kept it from a supersweet rating, is that it's light on moisture. But it's perfect for Summer.

Beauticology Raspberry Cream Macaron Body Butter - Sweet

This body butter is creamy, sinks into the skin beautifully and leaves skin cool & refreshed. I love the fresh raspberry scent. I consider both of these more for Summer than Winter. So I'm glad I'm using them now.  Have you heard of Beauticology? I know so many European Brands now! When I apply for British Citizenship, I will pass with flying colors! Somehow, I don't think BEAUTY PRODUCTS will be on the test ;) LOL

The winner of the Aveeno Ultra Calming Night Cream Giveaway is Shireen of Reflection of Sanity Blog (Canada)! Congratulations Shireen! I sent you an email. Enjoy, it's one of my favorites :)

I'm not familiar with these either :o( but I do love getting to know them through you. One day when I'm in Europe and see these I'll have to pick them up. You had me at strawberry.

I love the name of this product and it sound so amazing to apply another great introduction. Congrats to Shireen so well deserve.

The Dainty Dolls House said... glad they turned on great! I had never used them myself, but thought they smelled amazing. When I seen this package, I thought it was the right one to choose because of the macarons on it!! So sweet, happy you liked it and it was lovely to use too :)

Dang it, I swear US and UK gets the best beauty brands and products and us in Canada gets left out. Haha! And I still can't believe I won, thank you so much, Kim! Can't wait to try the night cream! xx

The design is beautiful <3

I have to say, I was surprised by how much the packaging of these products resembles the packaging for Philosophy products. But then again, I'd much rather pay less for something that works as well as Philosophy, so I'm keeping Beauticology in mind for next time we head over to Europe!

These sound delicious! I love strawberry scented body products, but sometimes they don't get the strawberry quite right. So glad this is a good one!

Somehow I feel like better bath products are available in the drugstores in Europe than here in the US. They need to come here. Congratulations to Shireen!

When I spotted this on your Instagram I knew I had to pop over and read the review. Surprisingly, I haven't tried this brand even though there is a Tesco not from from home! You know my love of macarons, I'm sure I would love this esoecially if the scent, as you say, does not smell artificial. Cute packaging too! Must look out for it!

Jane said...

I am surprised you guys don't do collaboration posts! Really lovely to hear when Kizzy sends you things and when you send her things too :) great friendship!

These do not look like something cheap you'd pick up at a pharmacy here…. I love the packaging and the fact that I get to know brands I had not seen or heard of before.
