Back when Zoella launched her Sweet Inspirations collection I was determined to buy the Bath Latte from that collection. Even though I had no idea whatsoever what it was going to smell like, I wanted it. The packaging just looks so cute and pretty and everything about it seemed amazing. Sadly my package got lost in the mail and I never received the shower gel back then, but a while ago when I went to the German drugstore Rossmann I finally got my hands on it and today I’m going to tell you guys everything about this amazing smelling shower gel. If you’re interested in finding out more about this extremely adorable bottle of shower gel, make sure you continue reading!
Like the other products from the Zoella Sweet Inspirations collection, this Bath Latte has a very cute and sweet packaging. The collections’ main colours are pastel blue, pastel pink, white and gold and this packaging has that same colour scheme going on, except for the pink. The bottle is shaped like those old school glass milk bottles – hence the name ‘bath latte’ – and is decorated with a shiny label that says the name of the brand and the product. In my opinion this packaging looks cute as well as very pretty and very girly. I think it’s very innovative and just amazing to look at. I love having it on my little shelve.
The bottle isn’t just very pretty, it’s also quite big. It comes with 400 ml of product which is quite a reasonable amount. But because most of the Zoella shower gels, or at least the original Soak Opera, come in a big packaging it didn’t surprise me that much. Anyway, I do like the size of the packaging and the fact that therefore this bottle will last me for quite some time.
Zoella Beauty Bath Latte – €5,99
On the back of the bottle Zoella tells us a little more about the product. She tells us the following:
“Indulge in this deliciously scented creamy bath and shower milk. Enriched with nourishing sweet almond, cacao and honey to leave your skin feeling beautifully soft”.
Aside from that it doesn’t go into much details when it comes to claims but also not about the scent. The only thing I knew about it scent-wise before I actually smelled it is what I heard Zoella say in her video about it. But if you don’t know Zoella or don’t watch (all) of her videos, you’ll probably have no idea what this shower gel, or shower milk as Zoella calls it, is going to smell like and I do think that’s a little strange. I’m pretty sure there are lots of people who don’t even know about Zoella’s existence that like this shower milk.
But luckily for those who have no idea what this smells like I’ve actually smelled it and I’ll try to describe what it smells like as good as I possibly can. If you have any of the Zoella Sweet Inspirations products, this smells almost exactly the same. It has a very sweet scent that reminds me of luxurious cookies. Like macarons with a touch of vanilla. It’s definitely a very sweet scent and since i’m not that into super sweet scented products it did take some getting used to for me, but because there’s also a bit of warmth in the scent I do really like it.
I personally would describe the shower gel as a very young product and with that I’m trying to say that the scent is very sweet and therefore probably more interesting for younger girls. Of course that doesn’t mean anyone who doesn’t consider him or herself young can’t use it or necessarily won’t like it, but I think you guys understand what I’m trying to say right?
Because this is called a Bath Latte and a shower milk I expected the product to have a very nice consistency. A bit creamy but not very thick. Just by looking at it I did feel like I was right and having tried it (a million times) I know I was. It’s definitely different than a regular shower gel because it’s not as gel like as a shower gel is. It’s a lot more fluid, thin and just not as jelly. It’s hard to describe but I hope this makes some sort of sense to you.
One thing that I do want to mention about getting product out of the packaging is that the opening of the bottle is huge. It’s seriously big and there is no mechanism on it that prevents you from spilling half of the shower gel onto your shower floor so you do have to be very careful on that front.
When it comes to cleaning my body this shower gel definitely does a great job. It makes me feel very clean and fresh and I love how the scent lingers. It’s not too strong but it’s there. I also like that this shower milk isn’t drying. It actually does leave my skin feeling soft and that’s not something that happens all of the time.
Overall I’m quite impressed by this Zoella Beauty Bath Latte. It did take me a while to finally get my hands on it, but now that I have it I’m really happy with it. It smells really delicious, it looks absolutely adorable and it feels great on the skin. In other words it’s just the perfect shower gel and if you’re on the hunt for one that looks and smells amazing, I’d definitely recommend giving this one a go!
And that’s everything for today’s review. I hope you enjoyed reading it and be sure to let me know what you think of the Zoella Beauty products and if you’ve ever tried them!
