Zoella Beauty... good for non-teenagers?


Yes i know i am late to the party again and this is probably the thousands post about those products but first of all this products took really long to arrive and second i really like to test something for a while before i speak about it. I do not want to post that a body lotion is awesome and then after a week i turn into a plague monster ;). I heard people complaining that bloggers would declare everything Zoella awesome either way because: Zoella. But well first of all i am rather sure Zoey has better things to do then reading my blog and if she would do so, i am rather sure she will be fine if some little blogger in Belgium does not love her products. So be assured this is 100% my true and tested opinion (as it always is, i like to think ;)). And well, i love it.

When Zoella released her own beauty products, i was intrigued. I do enjoy her videos and i really liked the cute packaging of the products. Plus, i just had to have this guinea pig make up bag. It has polka dots (can you tell i like those? ;)), a guinea pig, and on top of it all glasses which look a bit like mine (just wearing them for driving and conferences if you wonder why you have never seen me wearing those). 
Now after some rigorous testing, my final conclusions on this product:

1) The beauty bag: I think i have already explained in the intro sufficiently why i love that design. Designs are a matter of taste and you can see it on the photo so there is no need for me to explain it to you. The bag is made from plastic and the print is layered on top. It is nice from the point of view that this can handle the odd splash. However, i am rather sure that when i would keep carrying that around with me that the print would become odd looking and scratch probably partly off. Now i have not actually attempted it because i did not want to ruin my bag, however, this is the experience i have with this sort of material. So this little beaute will stay on my dressing table and i love it there. Obviously i might be wrong. If i am let me know in the comments.

2) The body lotion: When i ordered this i was kind of aware that Zoellas main target demographic is probably at least 10 years younger than me and mostly young teenagers. So i was not sure if this would suit me. I also read several bloggers opinions which said that this was to teenager sweet for them. However, i actually really liked the scent. It is not to overwhelming and rather flowery scent. It does not smell like cheap sweet teenager products (i was afraid of that). The body lotion contains vitamin E and is probably okay for any skin type since it is not over the top oily but does contain some fats. It moisturised my skin nicely and left a hint of scent.  So my final conclusion? It is a nice enough body lotion with a nice scent and i would purchase this again. I would say it is a really good body lotion for in the morning since it really sinks in very fast. However, this is not a wonder body lotion, but that was not to be expected. I actually just received a mail from feel unique asking me if i would like to reorder and i have to say i am tempted. At 5 british pounds, this is not breaking bank either and i just love the packaging.

I think in general Zoella has released a very nice product range good for everyone and not just die hard fans. I think when i am in Britain i might pick up also one of the bath items and maybe again the body lotion. Okay okay i admit the cute packaging and scent just has me hooked.

  3. I'm not too too sure about the lotion, but that makeup bag is cute! A hamster with geeky glasses! I think hamsters are cute, and every time I see some I stop to watch them for a while. They won't mix well with the cats though!

    1. I agree that it is not something i would recommend to others (the lotion). It is really at the end of the day just a body lotion and for sure cannot compete with high end body lotions or e.g. the body shop. I just really like the packaging and the scent :)
