Zoella Beauty | Review & Proud Moments ♡

Products featured above: Zoella Beauty; Make-Up Bag, Soak Opera & Blissful Mistful.

Zoe Sugg also most commonly known as 'Zoella' is a 25 year old Blogger and YouTuber from Brighton. With a huge following of over 7 million subscribers on YouTube. In September 2014 Zoe released her very own beauty range called 'Zoella Beauty' all products are sold both in-store and online in places such as Superdrug and Feel Unique.

To say that I am unbelievably proud is a complete understatement of how I feel about Zoe's success! I was travelling on the bus the other day when I noticed one of Zoe's make-up bags in someone else's bag and I have to admit I did let out a little squeal of happiness as it was a very proud moment and a very big smile appeared on my face! It's so great that she's getting the recognition, love and support which she 110% deserves, she really does put in so much work and effort into absolutely everything that she does.

On to the beauty review!
Of course, as a huge long-time follower of Zoe myself I was itching to get down to my local Superdrug to pick up some of Zoe's products! They all looked so much more beautiful on the self than I imagined them to be! One of my favourite things about this range is the unbelievable affordable price range of products. I chose to buy the Guinea Pig Make-Up Bag, the bath soak & shower cream; Soak Opera and the fragranced body mist; Blissful Mistful. I have to admit it has taken me a little while to start using them as I didn't want them to ever go down or ruin the beautifully designed packaging however I am so so glad that I did because my oh my, Zoe has done a fantastic job! Blissful Mistful is probably one of my favourite products to ever exist, the smell is so gorgeous, light, fruity and fresh (how do you possibly explain a smell accurately?!) I am forever getting compliments of how lovely it smells whenever I spray it (which is very often in college!). The Pink Spotty Guinea Pig Make-Up Bag is larger than I thought it was going to be however that is not in the slightest bit a problem because as it turned out, I carry a lot more make-up round with me than I thought and it is now the perfect size, win win! Next up, Soak Opera! What a gorgeous smell this one is fragranced with as well. I've only used it as a shower gel/cream although I can just imagine how heavenly it would be to use when having a nice long soak in the bath. I am very much looking forward to purchasing some more products from Zoella Beauty range and can't wait for what the future holds and has in store for Zoe.

Simple Skincare | Routine ♡

Products featured above: Simple; Cleansing Facial Wipes, Smoothing Facial Scrub, Replenishing Rich Moisturiser & Eye Make-Up Remover.

Today's blog post features 4 of my most loved go-to Simple Skincare products. Facial Wipes are always an essential for me, part of my everyday make-up routine when foundation isn't applying as nicely as I would like or for those mornings when I've fallen asleep with my make-up on the night before and have to wipe the remains off the following morning! Secondly, the Simple Skincare 'Facial Scrub' has newly become one of my favourite things to use in my weekly skincare routine! I have absolutely fallen in love with the way in leaves my skin after use, it honestly feels so unbelievably soft, moisturised and hydrated which is what I need the most as I have quite dry skin. I definitely feel like I have benefited since I have been using the product. I simply apply it once a week to my slightly damp face (usually just after a shower) and use a small amount and then massage into my face and simply wash off! Ta-dah! Silky smooth skin results! After application of the facial scrub I find using the Replenishing Rich Moisturiser just finishes off my skincare routine perfectly by hydrating my skin and locking in all moisture. However first impressions of using the Replenishing Rich Moisturiser wasn't the greatest as I didn't like the feel when applying it to my face it very much reminded me of putting on sun tan lotion and I hate the sticky feeling it leaves on your face! However I persevered and then happened to apply it after the facial scrub and felt like I'd created a skin miracle! I definitely do agree with companies when they say you should use their products together! Lastly, the Eye Make-Up Remover which I have previously featured in a blog post here
