I have a terrible sweet tooth. I usually keep it in check, but sometimes my desire for something sugary is too much to resist. “A moment on the lips, a lifetime on the hips” only goes so far. I’m not made of steel!
Zoella Beauty understands the irresistible appeal of sweets. Their new Jelly & Gelato launch offers a whole menu of enticing treats for the body that I’m happy to say satisfied my sugar cravings without a single empty calorie. Everything about the Jelly & Gelato collection is tooth-achingly sweet, from the sherbet-colored packaging to the mouthwatering scents. These are the kind of fun, innocent products that make me think of my teenage nieces, and I mean that in the best possible way.
British beauty guru Zoe Sugg, aka Zoella, whose vlog has about a trillion followers, launched her bath and body line in the UK in 2014. Jelly & Gelato marks Zoella Beauty’s expansion to Ulta, where their super-cute packaging guarantees these pampering treats will be scarfed right up. The bargain-priced bath and body products are packed full of nourishing ingredients like Vitamin E, Aloe and Shea Butter, and their sweet scents are scrumptious. And check out the packaging… SO cute!
I tested two products…
Zoella Beauty Cream Scrub ($12, 9.8 oz, available online only)
“Cream Scrub” sounds like a bit of a contradiction, but this dense, moisturizing concoction manages to both exfoliate and moisturize. “Polishing sprinkles” (which look a lot like sugar) are mixed together with extracts of Elderflower and Pomegranate to create a rich, honey-like cream that looks and smells like a creamsicle. Seriously, I wanted to take a bite out of this stuff! A good scrub in the shower left my skin feeling smooth and smelling so good.
Zoella Beauty Bath Wafers ($7.95, 3.5 oz, available online only)
From the name and packaging, I was expecting a whole bunch of little wafers, and was surprised to find just one big chunk of a bar that breaks into two pieces. I dropped a half in my bath water and took a soak, surrounded by a cloud of sweet scent. I emerged feeling soft and toned. Like the cream, the wafers contain Elderflower and Pomegranate, evidently the perfect combination of extracts for soft, smooth skin.
Since the holidays are right around the corner, I’ve made a mental note that Jelly & Gelato products will make adorable, fun gifts for anyone who needs a sweet little pick-me-up…calorie-free!
