Zoella beauty tutti fruity range - 'Kissy missy', 'Candy cream' and 'Foam sweet foam' reviews♥

Hello everyone!

After being a true lover of Zoella's existing floral scented products I was absolutely ecstatic to hear that Zoe was bringing out a new scent to her beauty line, and so of course went straight into ordering on Superdrug as soon as I possibly could! To begin with I have just bought the 'kissy missy' lip balm, 'candy cream' body lotion and 'foam sweet foam' shower gel so that I could smell the products to see how I liked them, but I can honestly say that the tutti fruity scent is my new favourite smell and I will without a doubt be purchasing all her other tutti fruity products some time soon.

Kissy Missy lip balm:

The Kissy Missy lip balm is, like all other products in this collection, a fruity scented product. The scent is hard to describe and the only word I can really think of to describe it is 'fruity', but it is definitely a scent like no other and is completely unique to this range. When you apply this product, it gives a highly pigmented pink finish which I really like about it, as it looks like you've spent time on your lipstick when really all you're wearing is lip balm. I find this amazingly moisturing too and I think it would be perfect for those days where you have a little less time to spend on getting ready. It would also make a great hand bag lip product as it is very quick and easy to apply and is small enough to carry about. In terms of the packaging of this product, it is just a small plastic tub with a screw on lid displaying the products name, which I think is great as it can be very easily stored. The name tag is also really cute and suits the scent well. Kissy Missy is only £3.00 in Superdrug stores or online  which in my option is amazing value for what is essentially a two in one lip product; it adds colour to your lips but also moisturises. I would without a doubt recommend this to anyone. When I applied this earlier, I checked a couple of hours later only to notice that the colour was still on my lips, and for a £3.00 product, I just think that's amazing as it will last a long time.

Foam sweet foam cleansing shower gel:

Again, this of course follows the same scent as the rest of the line - a sweet fruity scent that is in my option totally unique to this collection. With extracts to blueberry and acai this shower gel is specially designed to leave your skin feeling super soft and smelling great at the same time, which I honestly do completely agree with. After using this for the fist time today I came out of the shower feeling super soft and the whole bathroom just smelt fruity and delicious. I also found that this really lathers too so I know that it is doing the job well, and I just find the pearly pink colour of it so cute. The packaging of this is just a long plastic bottle with a baby blue lid, and a sticker that wraps around the center of the bottle, which I find really cute and easy to use in the shower. Again, this is, in my option, great value for money at only £3.50 in some Superdrug stores and on their website. Definite thumbs up for me!

Candy Cream softening body lotion:

Now I must say out of the three products I have reviewed in this post today I have saved the best til last! Again, with extracts of blueberry and acai this lotion works to really soften your skin, but what does it for me is that this little fello has bursting beads that really help to maximize the moisture it gives. Again this just smells like all the rest of the products I have reviewed in this post. I find this cream has a really great thick consistency but still manages to sink into the sink well too, and after being on holiday last week and getting a bit of  a tan I have been using this to try and help keep my tan for as long as possible by keeping my skin as healthy as it can be. I think it is also a great one to apply in the morning too, because the scent is so long lasting and will work for you as a perfume throughout the day. Packaging wise the shape of it is fairly similar to her original line, but this time the packaging is transparent which I love because I can see how much is left and when it's time to stock up! Like all the other products, this just has the tutti fruity logo on and pastel yellow coloured dots which I find really cute and it suits the scent well. This one is slightly more expensive than the other ones I've reviewed and is £5.00, but this is still 100% worthy of the money. You can buy this here or in some Superdrug stores.

Thanks so much for reading!

What's in my travel makeup bag? & Tips for packing makeup!♥

Hello everyone!
So as it is finally getting warmer here and the holiday season begins to roll in, I thought what better than to do a travel post, so today I thought I would share with you the kind of things I take away with me, whether that being if your going abroad or just in your own country! I absolutely love seeing other peoples insight into what are the bare necessity makeup products are for their holidays, and so today I hope that you will also love to see what I would usually take too! Some people will probably think that I take far too much, which in all fairness, I do, but I just I am very much an over packer when it comes to this sort of thing! And can we also just apologize for the lack of posts we've been doing recently - we have had so much work to do and have been so busy these past few months that our blog has just been neglected a little, but we promise to try and be a bit more consistent from now on! Sooo enough of the rambling, lets get to it!

The makeup bag I am choosing to use this summer is just an old revlon one that was bought for me as a birthday present a few years ago. After trying out my zoella beauty bags and a range of other ones, this was just the biggest that fit my huge masses of unnecessary makeup products in so I will be using this one this time!

So the first thing I always think about before packing holiday makeup is what I would usually wear on a daily basis. I like to start by thinking about my face makeup; what base do I use, what powder do I like and so on. This time I thought that the Rimmel Wake Me Up foundation was the best option for me as I have just been adoring this for at least a year now and it is my number one staple, so I knew for sure that I couldn't go wrong! It also has an sun protection factor of 15 and tiny flecks of shimmer which is great for that summery glow but also with that bonus added protection, which is especially important if your going to a hot country. Once you have thought about what you are wanting to take as a starting point for the face, it's a good idea to think about how you are going to get that to the place you are going in the most efficient way possible without it breaking or leaking. I recommend buying small testers of the desired product online, on websites such as Ebay, so then it will last you perfectly for the trip and won't be too heavy either! This is especially good if you are going abroad due to suitcase weight limits. If you are struggling to find testers online or think that that wouldn't be a good way for you, then another good tip is to buy small containers to put some of your product into. This will also just help to keep the weight as minimal as it possibly can be. You can buy these in any local bargain shop or failing that you can click here to see some on Ebay. You can purchase the one I bought here. There're just too cute to resist...right?

For powder I obviously like to take the Rimmel Stay Matte powder in the shade transparent because since day one this has just been my absolute favourite and it's so great for the money! A powder is definitely a must have on holiday because you just need something to set your makeup so that it doesn't run when your all sweaty and hot. You could also just use this on your face if your not over keen on thick makeup layers, which I tend to do quite often if I'm in hot temperatures because you don't always want to have heavy makeup when your warm. I think it can just make you feel a bit dirty and, in general, really not very nice.

A really important thing to remember when on holiday is keeping your skin protected in the heat, as the harmful sun rays can do all sorts of damage. Some people would just use a sun cream for this, but for me, I really dislike doing that. The consistency seems all too thick and greasy, and it takes far too long to sink in. However, this ultra sun face moisturizer with added SPF of 50 is perfect. It works exactly like a normal under the makeup cream would do, but at the same time adds all day long skin protection. Definitely a step that you shouldn't skip! Mine is also only 30ml, so is great for the baggage limits.

For eyebrows, I am literally only taking one product, and that is the trusty Maybelline brow drama in medium brown. It is great for the warm weather, as I can trust that it will for sure stay put. I am not one for liking harsh brows, so this brow mascara that only adds a little hint of shade is great. Definitely go for this if you prefer a lighter eyebrow.

When going on holiday, you are gonna sweat. Not a pleasant thought, but it is one that shouldn't be ignored when packing that bag. Obviously, with sweat, comes fallen eye makeup, and that is just the worst possible outcome. One of the best products that I have found cheaply to prevent this is the essence I <3 stage eyeshadow base. I will just warn you though, you literally only do need the tiny weeniest dot of this, as they only sell one shade, and it is rather orange toned! Apart from that, I love love love this.

The final thing that I want to talk about is the Maybelline baby skin primer. I mean, we have a lorra lorra lot more products in that bag, but they are just our everyday basics that we have already bored you enough with over the past, like the Makeup Revolution eyeshadow palette and the Maybelline color tattoo in 'on and on bronze' that we use every day. Primer is very important when going on holiday, because, again, you do not want anything at all to slip. I will be applying this just after the Ultra sun cream when on holiday, to ensure the best finish possible, all day long. At the moment, Superdrug have a buy one get second one half price offer on all Maybelline products, so that's for sure worth looking into. 

So, are you going away this year? If so, where?
