Zoella has been back in the beauty lab, and her new summer bathing collection, Splash Botanics, is FINALLY on the shelves! When the products landed on my desk, all I wanted to do was run home, jump in the bath and have a well-earned pamper sesh. Not only do they smell amazing – a summery blend of coconut and lychee is the theme for this collection – they’re also the cutest, most grid-worthy products Zoella’s released. Seriously, one snap of these on the gram and you’ll be rolling in likes. But as we know, it’s what’s on the inside that counts… *SPOILER* It ain’t a disappointment.
Drench Me Bath Soak
I’m a sucker for a bubble bath, so when I realised I could treat myself to one in the name of beauty journalism, I was over the moon. After a long day, sinking into this soak was sensational. The fresh scent gave me a much-needed boost, and I can’t even begin to tell you how good my skin felt. Overall verdict? Dreamy. Not to mention it looks adorable on the edge of the tub…
Lagoon Love Bath Milk
If you’re all about the lush life, this little addition will add a touch of luxury to your bath time. Simply sprinkle under running water and swirl until it’s dissolved, to give your bath that lil extra something. My recommendation? Climb in with a good book or sling on some tunes and let all those skin conditioners do their thaaaang… just sit back, relax and enjoy.
Make A Splash Moisturising Body Wash
After a good 20 minutes of me-time, I remembered I should probs do what you’re meant to do in the bath and wash! Now there’s nothing I hate more than a weak lather when I’m trying to scrub away the day, so I was delighted when this body wash foamed up into heaps of rich, moisturising bubbles. My skin was left cleansed and soft as you like. The scent was also super-fresh, so it will be great in the mornings for anyone wanting that wake-me-up feeling in their body wash.
Quench Me Moisturising Body Sorbet
Not gonna lie, this one piqued my curiosity. It looked like a yummy tub of ice cream, and I was interested to find out what a body sorbet felt like. The answer? Absolutely uh-mazing. It’s a light formula that’s perfect for summer – cos who wants thick, greasy creams in this heat? After applying it, my skin felt dreamy. Hydration, radiance and a light scent in a handy little tub – what more could your skin want?
So Soft Lip Oil
While we’re on the subject of skin food, Zoella has kindly created a lip oil so our pouts aren’t left out of the action. The nourishing formula of sweet almond, jojoba and argan oils is great for nourishing dry lips (aka mine) and giving them some much-needed love. This little guy has an instant place on my desk.
If you’re all about florals, get this in your life asap because it’s divine. The crisp fresh blend of freesia and iris gave me serious summer vibes and, honestly, I couldn’t get enough of it. On the hunt for a new summer scent? I think I’ve just found it for ya!
