Going back to last year when Zoe ‘Zoella’ Sugg (who? see here) released her first collection of products, although I of course had a look at them in Superdrug, I resisted purchasing. That was until recently when Zoe released her second collection, ‘Tutti Fruiti’ and I think where I felt her products weren’t really my thing originally, this collection actually made me want to investigate further. To be fair however, I still haven’t really gone mad but I did go into store thinking I would purchase her ‘Let’s Spritz’ body mist and the body scrub but what I actually came out with was both her body mists.
Let’s Spritz & Blissful Mistful
So what do I think?
Well for £8 a bottle, you really can’t go wrong and the only thing I would say could be improved, is how long the scent lasts but that isn’t a criticism, that’s a secret hope that the team behind Zoella will see demand for a proper fragrance in the future which I think would be well worth Zoe’s time creating and releasing.
Scent wise, I spritzed these a few times in store trying to work out which one I preferred and why I ended up coming out with both as although I prefer the original scent (which will probably be the one I continue with), her new fruity scent is great for summer and one to jump on now (while its summer, duh).
The packaging is spot on! I love the shape and the chunkiness of the bottles and the attention to detail on the back -on ‘Let’s Spritz’ it’s a pretty lace design, and on ‘Blissful Mistful’ it’s spots, both of which are slightly ruined by Superdrug’s need to put impossibly difficult to remove security stickers on everything! I do also love the chrome, metallic coloured lids.
It’s an odd thing really as with over 8 million subscribers, Zoe has a lot of people to cater for and satisfy but her predominant fan base are young teens and this is her market, at least for now. This is why, for the most part, her products aren’t really supposed to attract me and on many levels they don’t, but I am of course still curious. However, if I was in my young-mid teens (& not ridiculously close to turning 28 years old!), I would absolutely be all over Zoe’s products because they are not only affordable, but are good quality and a great intro into beauty and skin care; I really am so jealous of those young girls who can look up to Zoe like they would their fashionable older sister.
Have you guys tried any of Zoe’s products?
Anyway, I hope you’re all having a great week and I’ll be seeing you again soon!
Until next time x
