Zoella Beauty Sweet Inspirations: Bath Latte, Double Creme & Sweet Inspriations Perfume Review

I've been wanting to try some things from Zoella Beauty for awhile (FYI: Zoe Elizabeth Sugg is an English fashion and beauty vlogger, YouTuber, and author. She is best known by her YouTube username Zoella.). It's funny, because I don't follow her blog. I don't follow her on YouTube. But every time I saw her products, whether on a blog or social media, they always looked so cute. I love cute! I breathe cute! Well via Wikipedia, she's had a number of beauty collections: Tutti Fruity Collection which has been discontinued (2015), Sweet Inspirations Collection which is scented like sweet macaroons (2016), Jelly & Gelato Collection has Elderflower & Pomegranate (2017) and Snow'ella Collection has softening Peony & scented like Mint and for some products Cranberry (Christmas 2017). Well, I purchased three products from her Sweet Inspirations Collection (ULTA) and below are my thoughts on the products...


Sweet-Bittersweet-NotSweet
supersweet(run & buy it) sweet(really good,buy it) bittersweet(ok, issues)not sweet(not good,don't buy this stuff) 
  Zoella Beauty Sweet Inspirations Collections is Bittersweet
 
Zoella Bath Latte Bath & Shower Milk $8.95
Gotta love the packaging! A cute milk bottle. This bath & shower milk is a milky white. It doesn't quite pour out. It has a gel-like consistency. It's rather thick. The scent on the website describes it as sweet almond, cacao and honey. I pick up a little almond, but none of the other. For me, it smells a little artificial. The really good part about this product, is how it FEELS. It's thick & creamy. It feels moisturizing to the skin. Your skin feels soft. But for me the moisture didn't last past the shower. LOL So all this back & forth, I give it a Bittersweet rating. There's nothing bad, but it doesn't do enough for me to purchase it again. Maybe I can re-purpose the bottle when I'm finished using it.


Zoella Double Creme Body Cream $6.50
This is a macaroon scented Body Cream. I agree with the description of the scent. Its light & sweet. It's heavier than a lotion. It's thick. When you initially apply it, there is some stick (it doesn't last long) but once it dries your skin feels really soft and moisturized. But if you want something MUCH BETTER, let me recommend to you Farmhouse Fresh Sweet Cream Body Milk! It is SO GOOD and you'll come back here and thank me. Oh, yes you will! LOL


Zoella Sweet Inspirations Body Mist $12.95
Has anyone tried this? When I sprayed this on, it smells like PEPPER :S I was like, OH MY! I would say about an hour later it smelled fresh & delicious like cotton candy (candy floss)! It's a super light body mist. But whatever that initial note is, it's a zinger. HaHaHa It has to dry down to get to the macaron scent. LOL So spray this after your bath & shower, do your chores and THEN you'll smell sweet.


So, that is why I gave this collection (there are 4 more pieces) a Bittersweet rating. There's too much it's good at this point, oh its bad, oh its ok. I want it fab from the beginning. This collection is only available online, so you can't go in a store and try it (at least in the US or ULTA). Have you purchased any Zoella Beauty products? What are your thoughts? Maybe this collection isn't for me. The other collections had flowers, but I'm not a floral person.

Oh it's a shame that the products don't live up to expectations as they are so cute!

I've been a big fan of Zoella for years. I used to watch her vids religiously but not so much in the past few years since her first book came out. I think she's a sweet person, but man....these products are overpriced! I do think the packaging is cute, but if the products don't live up to the hype, well...Thanks for the honest rating, Kim!

I really only use YouTube for yoga videos, but even I am familiar with Zoella. That said, I didn't know she actually had product collections. I probably wouldn't rush to buy them, anyway, as for me they are too far on the cute side, but I'm glad to know I won't be missing out!
xox,

Nice review! I'm not a fan of Zoella - I like to watch her videos from time to time but the design of her beauty line is really cute.

The packaging is super cute. It is too bad this collection is not as great as it looks. I love that milk bottle. It would be perfect for crafting with later or simply using as a vase.

I am not a fan of Zoella either, I used to watch her old haul videos and enjoyed them but I don't anymore. I haven't tried anything from her collections but all I can say is that the packaging of her products is so romantic and cute, if I ever designed my own cosmetics, this is what I would want them to look like!! xx

I haven’t tried anything from Zoella! I don’t follower her on her blog or YouTube either. That’s too bad these are all bittersweet for you, Kim! I totally agree that I want fab from the beginner too!! And that’s so weird the spray smells like pepper at first!

The packaging for this collection is totally adorable! It's such a bummer that the products themselves were such disappointments. I only know of Zoella products through you Kim ;p

Tanya Dufour said...

Thanks for sharing your honest thoughts on these. That is so weird the perfume spray smells like pepper at first!

Lorena said...

Too bad they did not work AS FABULOUSLY as they looked !
Have a good weekend Kim.

Diva Desle said...

The packaging is actually really cute. Such a pity that they did not work well. I would have purchased it for the sweet packaging alone. 😁

Missy May said...

Such a bummer!! I hate when products are so expensive, but don't live to their expectations or what apparently its meant to achieve. Thanks for your honest verdict Kim.

I'm not subscribed to Zoella but I've watched a few of her videos. I've been curious about her products but they seem very hit or miss. Thanks for your honest review.

The packaging is wonderful - it's a shame the formulas weren't as effective!
