New In: Zoella Beauty Sweet Inspirations Collection

Friday, 24 June 2016

Zoella Beauty's empire has gone from strength to strength in the past two years, and the quality of her products is only getting better. Last month Zoella Beauty released their third bath and body collection, taking inspiration from the scent of macaroons. I absolutely love Zoella's bath and body range, so I was all over this when I saw the collection had landed. As a self confessed packaging fiend, I was instantly drawn in by the vintage feel of the packaging. Zoella always hits the nail on the head in terms of design when it comes to her beauty products.
There are eight pieces in the Sweet Inspirations collection, ranging from bath fizzers to makeup bags, so there's a nice selection to choose from.

First up is the Body Fondant Shimmer Balm.  It's a beautiful bronze balm that adds the most subtle glow to the skin. I've never been a fan of powder illuminators for the body - I find them way too intense and unnatural looking. This Body Fondant is great though because the glow it gives is very soft, you can't really go wrong with it. It just feels like a moisturiser on the skin, it's not sticky nor does it feel heavy. It comes with a powder puff to apply it, but I much prefer the finish when I apply it with my fingers. It's so easy to work with and I love the soft glow it gives to the skin. I might actually try using it as a cheekbone highlighter too, although I think it might just be too subtle for me to use on the face! It has a lovely macaroon scent to it too. It's €12.99, and it's quite a large product so you definitely get your money's worth out of it. The flecks of gold glitter in it are so subtle it's actually difficult to pick up on camera!

Next up is the Double Creme Body Cream. It's enriched with sweet almond oil, cacao and honey, giving it a gorgeous sweet scent. Although the whole range has quite a sweet smell, it's not sickly - it lingers nicely throughout the day but it's not an overpowering scent. The moisturiser is a little thick, so it takes a few minutes to soak into the skin but it leaves the skin feeling so soft. It can feel a bit sticky when it's soaking in, but it's actually worth it for the feel of your skin afterwards! I love the packaging - I always prefer tubes for moisturiser as you can really get all the product out. The Double Creme Body Cream is €6.99 for 160ml.

Finally, we have the Bath Latte. Packaging-wise, this is definitely my favourite - I love the vintage milk bottle style of it. This is a bath and shower milk, enriched with sweet almond oil, cacao and honey. Naturally, it has the same scent as the rest of the range, but I find that the scent is much more prominent when you use this as opposed to using the moisturiser. The Bath Latte lathers really nicely and leaves the skin feeling so soft and clean. Compared to the other shower gels in Zoella's range, this is a little on the pricey side at €7.95 for 400ml, but it's a gorgeous addition to the lineup if you want to treat yourself to a little luxury. 

The Zoella Beauty Sweet Inspirations is available now in most pharmacies, as well as Penneys/Primark and online at feel and 


  1. I really want to give the Bath Latte and Shimmer balm a go. The packaging is so girly and pretty and I can imagine these two paired together making your skin loo and feel absolutely fab

    Steph -

  2. I'm in love with the Body Fondant. It smells amazing. I really love the Bath Latte and it's packaging too.
    This has to be my favourite range from Zoella so far.
