Sorry there hasn’t been a blog for a couple of weeks, it’s been my birthday and truthfully I lost my blogging spark for a little bit 🙁 But we are back in the swing of things (hopefully) and today we have 2 things from the new Zoella Beauty Christmas range called……
Each year Zoella releases a Christmas gifting range, Beauty with Superdrug and Lifestyle range with Boots (post on some of them to come soon!). And I was lucky enough to get my hands on a couple of little things when Superdrug where doing their “product shelf testing” which is where they test shelf sizing and product pricing in a select number of Superdrug stores. But less of the boring stuff that lets face it, nobody really cares about and on to the good stuff, the products themselves!!
Winter Wonder Hand
This years theme is Fresh & Crisp, like when you first open your door on a Winters morning and there is fresh snow on the ground and that cold morning air that hits you in the back of the throat. And I don’t know how she did it, but Zoella hit the nail on the head! It’s abit strong scented but I love it!! I had to apply it a couple of times before I fell for it but it is without a doubt my go to hand cream this year!
This tube is £6 full price but at the minute you can save a whopping 50p and get it for £5.50…. But just look at that packaging (wow!) You get 90ml of that lovely scented cream, in a gorgeous rose gold tube with a half white and soft grey label. And when you look on the bottom half (the grey bit) of the label it has the simplest yet cutest Christmas trees in two rows, making it subtly Christmas-y. It’s non greasy and soaks into your hands pretty fast.
All is bright make up bag
Now this is SUPER cute! It’s £16 full price but is on offer (and yes you actually save more than 50p this time) for £12 and honestly at either price it is well worth the money!!
For less than £20 you get a little make up bag which is a speckled grey colour, which has a rose gold zip that has a baby pink trim around it and the cute little saying ‘all is bright’ in the middle of the bag. The size of this bag is perfect just to keep in you everyday bag and keep all of your make up or bits and bobs in one place, I keep the rollerball perfume, plasters, nail file, compact mirror and whatever that days lippy is in it and there is plenty more room for other things!
But in the bag you get not just the rollerball perfume of Snowella, but also a mini tube of Winter Wonder Hand (sorry it’s not in the photo I keep it on my desk at work). But the rollerball perfume, I mean can we just take a minute to appreciate the fact that Zoella has brought back freakin rollerball perfume!?! Talk about a girls childhood memory!! It’s in a white glass tube with a rose gold lid and rose gold ‘Snowella’ etched onto it (at first look I thought the colour of the lid and writing was gold but there is pink tones in it, so lets stick to the theme of this year and say it’s rose gold). The tube of Winter Wonder Hand is in more of a plastic tube and has a baby pink flip top lid which matches the same colour as the pink trim around the zip on the bag. This is such a cute stocking filler for anybody from teenagers to somebody in their twenties.
I only got into Zoella beauty this time last year and I am gutted I have missed out on some possibly amazing affordable products, but just as respect and reminiscing on last years (some of my first ever Zoella Products) here is a picture of some of last years and this years products…….
Even though I love this cream, I was naive last year I only bought 1 tube of ‘Hungry Hands‘ and got another miniature in the crackers gift set that was released and I REALLY regret that, I should have stocked up on it when I could have because no cream is ever going to beat the festive smell that it has. Honestly it was just the right amount of sweetness, 100% Christmas in a tube that was. I will not be making the same mistake again and can guarantee you I will be socking up on these products.
