So…, if you remember a few months back one of my friends sent me a gift bag, that included a few Zoella Beauty products as both of us are Zoe Sugg fans, so it was a pretty obvious choice. I’ve tried to avoid writing this post for a long time (you’ll see why), hence why the delay.
When I first received Zoella Beauty products I was really excited, I mean which Zoe Sugg viewer wouldn’t. The results though, weren’t that good. Let me explain before you, maybe(?) get angry. The products that my friend sent me were the Zoella Ginger Cream, Zoella Hand Cream, Zoella Gingerbread Lip Balm and the Zoella Candy Clutch.
The clutch I love, it holds so many things and looks really cute. Granted I do get terrified of it getting dirty but it’s amazing and super easy for travel.
The other products though, I am not sure what went wrong but the fragrance is not the best. It smells so chemically and this being the gingerbread collection- it smells nothing like gingerbread. Firstly, the hand creams, they work very well they make your hands feel really soft and moisturized. It does feel a little bit tacky for a few minutes after application, it goes away pretty quickly soon and that doesn’t bother me much. The thing that really throws me off is the really chemical fragrance.
The lip balm- oh what do I say. The chemical smell blast is full-on the minute you open the lid. The other problem that I face with the lip balm is that it has white ashy tint to it which is especially prominent on pigmented Indian lips. I have pigmented lips, so it looks pretty weird and tastes pretty weird. Another no-no is the fact is that it is in a tub, I’m more of a tube person.
I wish this wasn’t this way, but it is. I love Zoe, and I wish I could say I love her products as much as the others. I don’t know maybe I got a bad batch or something.
Keep Smiling Always,
