Zoella has always been one of my favourite Youtubers ever, so I was very excited when I found out she launched her own beauty collection a long time ago. Now she has launched a few different collections already and so far I’ve been loving them. Recently I finally ordered the Zoella Beauty Double Crème Body Cream from the Sweet Inspirations collection and I was extremely excited about it. Today it’s time for the review. If you’re interested in finding out whether this is as good as the other body creams from her other collections or not, make sure you continue reading!
I have to say that Zoella always nails it when it comes to packaging. All of her products look absolutely adorable and I feel like with ever collection she creates something even more beautiful. I have to say that this might actually be one of my favourite packagings from her. The body cream comes in this really pretty white and baby pink striped tube that has this really nice shape to it. It’s decorated with a big ‘Z’ on top and a little text on the front in a really nice and decorative font. I just think this is one of the girliest yet sophisticated body cream packagings ever and I couldn’t be more excited about it.
The Zoella Beauty Sweet Inspirations collection consists out of quite a lot of products that smell like macarons. I have to say that I’ve never eaten or smelled a macaron so I had absolutely no idea what to expect, but I figured it would smell a little sweet.
Zoella Beauty Double Crème Body Cream – €6
On the back of the tube Zoella tells us a little more about the product. I always really enjoy the way she does it because she can make it sound like the most amazing product ever.
“Treat yourself to a dollop of indulgence with this macaron scented body cream. Enriched with nourishing sweet almond oil, cacao and honey, it will leave your skin feeling beautifully soft, silky and smelling totally irresistible”.
So, according to that little piece of text this product doesn’t just smell like macaron, it also has a bit of almond, cacao and honey to it. It doesn’t clearly state if those ingredients are mixed in with the scent or not, but from what I can smell I do think you can smell the almond in it and that’s a really good thing if you ask me.
The scent of the body cream is very sweet and definitely a more young scent. I don’t think it’s a scent for everybody, but I can appreciate it. It does smell a bit like a desert, but in a toned down version. Because of the almond the body cream doesn’t smell overly sweet, but the macaron scent does have the upper hand when it comes to the scent.
Scent is really important when it comes to body creams because you’re not going to cover your entire body with something that stinks. But aside from smell it’s also very important that the body cream actually hydrates the skin. The texture of this body cream is really nice. It really is a body cream rather than a lotion. It’s quite a creamy and relatively thick texture that feels really moisturising. It does have a bit of a greasy touch to it, but that’s nothing major and once it has sunken in to the skin you can’t even tell it was there to begin with.
Even though the body cream has quite a thick and creamy texture it does blend into the skin really nicely. A little bit of it goes a long way which I think is a big plus and it doesn’t lay on top of the skin too much. I wouldn’t say that it doesn’t do that at all, but not as much as you would expect from the texture and again, once it has sunken in to the skin that layer is gone.
After massaging it into the skin and letting it sit for a while the skin feels really soft and hydrated. It feels really nice and it also smells really good. The scent is perfect strength wise. It’s not too strong in a way it interferes with your perfume or anything, but you can still smell it a couple hours after putting it on your body which is something not all body creams are capable of.
And even though this is a pretty perfumy product I don’t feel like it’s very drying. It actually doesn’t dry out my skin at all, it does the opposite. I can imagine that if you have very sensitive skin or if you’re particularly sensitive to perfume this might not be it for you, but on my skin it doesn’t really cause a reaction.
Overall I’m really happy I was able to add this body cream to my Zoella collection. From the packaging to the actual product, it’s just really amazing. I love the way it looks, the scent is really nice and I’m amazed by how moisturising Zoella’s body creams are. It’s definitely a nice product to have and especially if you’re a fan of Zoella!
And that’s everything for today’s post. I hope you enjoyed reading it and be sure to let me know if you have tried any of the Zoella products and if so, be sure to let me know how you like them!
