I definitely wasn't the only one who went totally heart eyed when YouTube Queen Zoella showed the first few glimpses of her new Sweet Inspirations beauty range. The soft pink and baby blue, French patisserie style packaging is utterly adorable and the macaron scented concept had me instantly sold.
When it comes to bath products, sweet, yummy and indulgent scents are my all time fave. I was a little worried these might have a bit of an artificial, sickly sweet scent but nope, they actually smell quite expensive, and similar in fragrance to the Laura Mercier bath products. The range has a delicious almond and vanilla scent that smells like fluffy marshmallows and creme brulee, heaven!!
Body Fondant | Shimmer Balm | £10
I actually gave the early online launch a miss, purely because I was being a diva as they didn't have the Body Fondant available, which was one of the products that I wanted most. So I eagerly waited until my local Superdrug had the range in stock, which I was so impatient for but it was worth it. The product is essentially a creamy balm that you massage onto your skin and it leaves behind a sunkissed, shimmery glow. It's actually a lot prettier and more natural looking that I'd expected and there's no tacky chunks of glitter either! It's housed in a cute round box and comes with an adorable powder puff, with lovely little lace details on it, that you use to apply the balm. It's the most expensive product in the collection at £10, which I feel is slightly overpriced compared to the rest of the range. I also think the packaging is perhaps a little large, as cute as it is, or it would've been a perfect holiday product!
Sugar Dip | Scented Bath Salt Granules | £6
Le Fizz | Fragranced Bath Fizzer | £5
Double Creme | Body Cream | £5
Life Is Sweet | Beauty Bag | £6
And of course I couldn't resist this adorable little pouch, the cute scalloped edges just got me and I love the duck egg blue colour. It's labelled as a beauty bag and would be perfect for popping into your handbag for storing little bits and bobs into it like hair ties, bobby pins and your current lipstick etc.
I decided against purchasing the mist this time, as I'd had one from the original collection and personally I prefer actual perfumes as the scents sticks around for a lot longer than the mist, although I did use it as a room spray instead which is quite a nice idea. You may also notice a milk bottle shaped gap in these pictures, because there were no Bath Lattes left on the shelves, so unfortunately I wasn't able to grab that one at the time. However, since buying this lot I've actually already sneakily added it to my collection (someone take my purse away from me please and thanks.)
