Zoella Tutti-Fruity Range.

As a lot of people will have seen by now, Zoella (aka Zoe Sugg) has brought out another collection of beauty products that follow on from her original line of products, although this time, they have a different kind of feel to them. They're tutti-fruity scented and they have brighter colours on the packaging. This range captured my interest more due to the more fruity scents and as it's been out for a while already, I thought I'd get my hands on some and finally check it out. I only purchased a few items out of the range to try out initially, so let me talk to you about what I got.

Zoella Let's Spritz Body Mist - I picked up this particular product first out of all of them as I'm a fan of my body mists. I prefer lighter mists to perfumes as they aren't as strong, and they're just a lot cheaper than paying full whack for a perfume! This bottle really caught my eye when looking at the display in Superdrug as it's such a cute design; clear glass on the front (apart from the blue writing) and a intricate white lace design on the back which you can see through the glass from the front. It's unlike any other bottle of body mist that I've seen so far which is why it really stood out to me. As you can see, the liquid is a light pink colour, which I find adds to the charm of the bottle. The scent of the Let's Spritz follows the tutti-fruity scent of the range, but I don't find this to be all that fruity smelling if I'm honest. It does have a little bit of a fruit scent, but I find it to smell quite floral too. It's the kind of smell that I would expect to smell from a high-end, expensive shampoo and conditioner that you'd find in a salon, if that makes sense? The product specification on the website says that it has cassis and raspberry notes within it, which you can smell but they're very delicate and light in the mist. Although, having said this, it is a very fresh and pleasant smell and if you spray quite a lot on it doesn't overwhelm the senses and doesn't smell too heavy. I'm going through this product quite quickly and I can definitely say I'll be repurchasing this when I've ran out! This is currently £8 from Superdrug. 

Zoella Foam Sweet Foam Shower Gel - If you've read some of my blog posts already, you'll know that I am completely obsessed with shower gels. So based on this alone, it was only instinctive that I picked up the shower gel from this range. I love the fact that the gel itself has a strong lustre to it which is what is making the gel in the bottle look very reflective and metallic. Before picking this up, I didn't have any gels like this, so I was happy to add this to my collection for that on it's own. I have used this product since buying it, and I can say that it foams up really nicely and the scent lingers on your skin for a little while after rinsing it off. As you can see in the picture, the bottle has the colour scheme of pink, blue, and white, which I really liked when browsing the collection. I think that the faint details on the packaging that resemble a lacy pattern is very pleasing on the eye and it just adds that extra special touch to the bottle. The scent of this is very similar to the spritz as it is part of the same range, but it has a more distinctive scent of acai and blueberry. There is a very slight difference in scent if you smell one product and then the next, but to my nose (which isn't that of a professional scent smeller) they smell pretty much the same - which isn't a bad thing as the scent is very pleasant and gives me the impression of a very clean and fresh smell. This shower gel is £3.50 from Superdrug.

Zoella Candy Cream Body Lotion - I decided to pick this product up as I don't really have many body lotions and seeming as this one was a steal at only £5, I couldn't really pass the opportunity up. The product image continues with the colour scheme of white and pink, but this time it has some pale yellow on there too. It does look very appealing to the female audience with the colour scheme, but that certainly doesn't limit it to females. I've also tried this product out before putting it up on here, and I can say that it does make your skin feel soft and smooth, and it's really nice to apply. It massages into the skin really easily and the scent is very relaxing to smell on your skin after it has sunken in. The consistency is smooth and it's just right in it's thickness, if that makes any sense at all! This body lotion has the exact same scent of the shower gel, with the blueberry and acai being the most dominant smells. 

Zoella Scrubbing Me Softly Body Scrub - I'm not a huge fan of body scrubs if I'm totally honest, so I was quite sceptical of buying this when I first saw it. Although, I knew I liked the scent of the rest of the tutti-fruity range, and I had tried the other products, so I thought I'd at least give this a go once before I ruled it out. I don't use body scrubs, so I'm pretty sure my body could use a good bit of exfoliation! I haven't used this one yet, but I hold high hopes for it based off of how the rest of the range has been, so I'm looking forward to using it and seeing what the results are like. This is the third product in the range that shares the dominant scent of blueberry and acai, but this scrub contains some cocoa butter, which is known for helping to make the skin really soft to the touch. This body scrub's packaging shares the same light yellow and pink as the body lotion, which makes it really nice to look at when the products are all next to each other. This scrub was a steal priced at £7 for the tub from Superdrug.

Now, some of you might be wondering; as I've been trying to go cruelty-free with my beauty products where I can, is this Zoella tutti-fruity range cruelty-free itself? I have been doing some research, and like with some brands, results aren't directly in your face saying yes or no. Usually I've found that when there is nothing direct and very strong saying that it's tested on animals, it's a little bit safer to say that at the moment, it is cruelty-free. As far as I'm aware, the Zoella ranges are based at Superdrug and, so it's available mainly to the UK as of now. However, these products can be shipped internationally if ordered online. This being said, there was a law passed in China last year which meant that their 'mandatory animal testing' on basic beauty products and cosmetics was abolished. Meaning that anything new that was sold in their country after this law was changed means that it isn't tested on animals before it is considered 'fit' for human use. This is good news for the Zoella beauty range, as I'm very much hoping that this means the brand is cruelty-free due to this news. But as a disclaimer, I am not 100% certain of whether it is definitely CF, so do not take my word for it; do your research for yourself and make your own decision. Until I see something to make me think otherwise, I am considering Zoella beauty to be cruelty-free. Also, the products do say 'not tested on animals' on the back of the packaging. (It should be noted that companies can actually do this, even if they aren't BUAV or PETA approved, and if their ingredients are tested, this generally stands for the finished product not being tested).

Have you tried any of the Zoella beauty range so far? What have been your favourites?
