Last summer seen me fall in love with Zoella Beauty products. The Jelly & Gelato range completely won me over from the packaging to the scent so when Zoella released this years summer range, I knew I had to grab it all. This years range is called Splash Botanics and oh my word … I have to say I love this range more than last years. It’s been amazing watching Zoella grow from a young woman to this absolute girl boss, smashing beauty collections, her lifestyle range and now releasing a new book. It’s hard to think she has basically built an empire when almost 9 years ago she just uploaded a couple videos to YouTube to share her passion for beauty.
So this range, firstly the packaging. The best one to date in my opinion. Based around plants (if you watch her vlogs you’ll know she loves a house plant!) and palm leaves, the packaging purely reflects that. Proper tropical vibes and making me want to book a holiday ASAP. The whole tropical theme is totally on trend right now and perfectly matched for this absolute gorgeous weather the UK have been having. The scent from the whole range is also delicious and has been tailored with everyone in mind, from teenagers to adults. It’s not too floral and smells fresh and uplifting. Definitely the scent of summer for me.
The great thing about this range as well is its 100% cruelty free and vegan friendly! So let’s take a look at what’s available in the range:
Splash Botanics Drench Me Bath Soak – £6.95 – Superdrug
The bottle looks exactly like a milk carton and I’m living for it! This bath soak has extracts of hydrating coconut water and radiance boosting lychee, this bath soak will definitely send you off to a tropical island in the comfort of your own bath. Add a small amount under running water and it produces a lovely bubbly bath, the perfect amount of bubbles. Only issue I had with this is the bubbles do tend to disappear quite quickly but who really spends a long time in the bath during the summer anyways?
Splash Botanics Make A Splash Moisturising Body Wash – £6.00 – Superdrug
I used to swear by the Jelly & Gelato body wash because it used to leave my skin feeling amazingly moisturized and this one is exactly the same. Same with the bath soak it has extracts of coconut water and lychee to leave your skin feeling soft and cleansed. A small amount on your hands or shower puff and it lathers up nicely on the skin.
Splash Botanics Quench Me Moisturising Body Sorbet – £7.00 – Superdrug
Full of coconut water and lychee again, this body sorbet is guaranteed to leave your skin feeling moisturised and hydrated. The formula doesn’t feel sticky when rubbed into the skin and dries down quickly. The one issue I did have with this is there was no protective seal when I screwed off the lid. I did a bit of research and turns out every tub is like this. It just feels slightly unhygienic in my opinion.
Splash Botanics Lagoon Love Bath Milk – £3.00 – Superdrug
I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Zoella Beauty bath milks. Every week I used to treat myself to a nice hot bath with one of the bath milks from the Jelly & Gelato range for my pamper sessions. This bath milk has a slightly different formula though to the last one. Same as the rest of the products from this range its got extracts of coconut water and lychee. I feel at £3.00 though this is slightly on the expensive side if you compare it to the other ones. However you can get 2 baths out of this, depending on the size of the bath. You can also mix this with the bath soak to create absolute heaven in a bath.
Splash Botanics So Soft Lip Oil – £5.00 – Superdrug
This was a completely new product for Zoella Beauty and they had spent about 2 years formulating this lip oil. A sweet cherry scented oil, enriched with a conditioning blend of sweet almond, jojoba and argan oil to nourish and hydrate your lips. I absolutely love this and I definitely think this is my favourite product. The formula isn’t sticky like a normal lip gloss yet gives your lips that glossy look. This can be used on its own or on top of a lipstick to keep your lips hydrated, especially with a liquid lipstick as some of them can be quite drying.
Splash Botanics Botanic’Eau Body Mist – £8.00 – Superdrug
The real star of this range. A gorgeous summer scent with notes of freesia and delicate iris flowers, this smells like summer in a bottle. This fragrance is completely unisex so anyone can wear it which, after watching the product release video, Zoella and the whole team were so excited to achieve. The scent lasts a good couple of hours before its undetectable but just another spritz and your back to smelling like a tropical paradise again. The packaging of this is just absolutely stunning as well with the floral background and the clear bottle.
There is also a cosmetics bag available which is retailed at £10.00 from Superdrug.
