I have literally been so excited about this range of products. Zoella is my absolute idol. She was my inspiration to start blogging in the first place and I just love how down to earth and relatable she is despite the fact she is so insanely successful! I would love one day to achieve the success that Zoella has achieved and it would be a dream come true to have my own line of beauty products.
If I could, I would have bought absolutely everything in the range, but as I logged on to the Superdrug website the morning after the launch, already most of the products were completely sold out- a complete reflection of the overwhelming support there is out there for Zoella. Therefore, I put my disappointment aside and chose the 'Soak Opera' bath soak and shower cream and the 'Creamy Madly Dreamy' body lotion. As we all know, I have body lotions coming out of my ears. I could not even tell you how many body butters, creams, lotions and moisturisers I own, but as an avid fake-tanner I can tell you from first hand experiences that there's nothing worse than scaly tan on dry patches of skin.
The Zoella body lotion has a really subtle fruity smell which is a bonus as I don't like hugely overpowering lotions. The cream itself is fairly thick, and does take a while to soak in, but after fully absorbed it leaves your skin feeling silky and hydrated (just make sure you leave enough time for it to fully soak in before putting clothes on or you will start to feel a little bit sticky). The first time I used the product I definitely applied too much, but with a bit of trail and error I discovered that a little bit goes a long way.
The Soak Opera is by far my favourite product. We all know how much I love a good long soak in the bath, and there's nothing nicer than relaxing in a gorgeous scent of bubbly joy with a magazine in one hand and a bag of minstrels resting on the side of the bath (this is actually exactly what I spent yesterday doing on my brief visit back home!). The scent is similar to that of the body lotion, but slightly sweeter and stronger. It lathers into a gorgeous bubbly heaven and you just feel your muscles relax and soak into the water. Although the product can also be used as a shower gel, I am going to save the entire bottle for these indulgent baths as I want to save the luxury for special occasions!
Both products were priced at £5, which I think is an absolute bargain for such great products! If you haven't already, I really would recommend trying these out and if you've used any other products in the range leave your comments below and let me know your thoughts!
