Do you ever see a product and just think ‘I need to try that’ purely based on the packaging? Because I did with Bilou. Basically, if it catches my eye then its worth a try! I remember when Zoella received a huge package of Bilou products in her PO box and as soon as I seen them I knew I had to give them a try. But I never did and seriously questioning why. I think the reason behind it though is that I’m set in my ways regarding my shower products. So when I received these through the door I was so excited to try them out.
Bilou is a brand created by a YouTuber called Bibi from BibisBeautyPalace. She has over 5 million subscribers and she has created such an amazing brand with such a wide range of products. I mean, it practically flew off the shelves when it first arrived to the UK in Superdrug stores. Not surprising with the cute packaging, gorgeous font and pretty pictures. Also everything that Bilou sell is made in Germany and is vegan. Most people around me raved about her products yet I still never tried it for myself. Until now.
Bilou Creamy Shower Foam in Tasty Donut* – Superdrug – £3.99
Now who doesn’t want to walk around smelling like a donut?! A strawberry donut with sprinkles for that matter. Now you can slightly with this shower foam. A small pump of this (the size of your palm roughly) will cover your whole body leaving it clean and fresh. I adore a strong smelling shower product, I feel a lot more confident knowing there’s no bad smells left behind when I do use one. You can definitely smell the strawberry scent in this, however you have to proper sniff to get the scent of fresh donuts. Its there, you just have to search for it harder which is a let down.
I’ve found with other shower foams that they can be quite drying on the skin. With this I don’t feel near as dry, I still feel it in places where I still get dry patches like the tops of my arms and my elbows though. But this is down to my terrible skin. The consistency is quite strange too, it genuinely feels like I’m away to start lathering up my body with shaving foam and start a mass shaving marathon. But once lathered up then washed away it doesn’t leave the skin feeling dry and leaves that lovely strawberry scent behind which lingers for hours.
Bilou Gentle Cream Foam in Fizzy Berry* – Superdrug – £3.99
When it comes to my favourite scents in the world, behind coconut and chocolate is berries. Maybe its just because I’m addicted to food but sweet smelling scents get me weak at the knees. This is no exception. Its been described as ‘fruity and fresh, like a tingly berry shower with a lemon spritzer‘. Now the smell is quite strong but not overpowering to the point its literally all you can smell. Its strong enough to last the whole day, with me casually sniffing my arms come 9pm at night and still getting the same strength from 10 hours ago.
One of the things I love about this as well is how quickly it melts into the skin and dries down. It doesn’t leave your skin feeling sticky afterwards either. A small pump can do each part of your body evenly and leaves your skin feeling somewhat soft and hydrated. This is down to the shea butter, almond oil and avocado oil that is in this cream foam. I cannot start my day without applying this on at least my arms now as its just absolutely delicious!
I’m so glad I’ve finally tried out Bilou as a brand and now I have a wish list as long as my arm of products I definitely need, especially the Coco Cocktail shower foam. It sounds dreamy!
Have you tried anything from Bilou before?
Until next time,
