I have a real weakness for anything sweet. Anything from food, beauty and the candles in my home, then I’m usually first in the queue. Makeup palettes that smell of sweet peach and lipsticks with a yummy smell of of chocolate have all made it into my makeup bag. When it comes to body care there are quite a few products that have an almost synthetic fragrance, despite the delicious description.
One brand has got it spot on with their body care range. German Brand, Bilou, is well known for it’s unique fragrances and have recently come over to the UK and is exclusive to Superdrug. You’ll find a much larger selection of products online but they are starting to filter more into their stores. Products include delicious scents such as Coco Cocktail, Pink Melon, Fizzy Berry, Cotton Candy and Tasty Donut, and everything is 100% Vegan.
I was very kindly sent some products from the range to try out for myself and I thought you’d like to know my thoughts on each one.
The first product is a 2 in 1 body spray it states it’s a deodorant as well as a body spray. I tested this on a day I was just pottering around at home even though it smells absolutely divine, I shall still keep wearing my normal deodorant, just to be safe from body odour. If you are a lover of all things fruity then this is definitely one for you. The scent reminded me of cherry sweets and lasted quite a while on me, the spray felt really gentle on my skin thanks to moisturising ingredients. I think it’s perfect to carry in your bag if you want a quick freshen up during the day.
I couldn’t wait to see how the Gentle Cream Foam performed as I’m use to a thick body lotion. This moisturiser is super lightweight and fluffy which comes in an aerosol bottle, you only need half a pump to produce a good amount of product. to cover your whole body. It doesn’t feel heavy on the skin and it absorbs really quickly, great if your in a hurry and need to fly out the door in the morning. It contains Almond Oil, Shea Butter and Avocado Oil to help keep your skin feeling soft and smooth. The fragrance isn’t quite as strong as the body spray which I quite like, it means I can wear my usual perfume during the day without this body foam overpowering it.
I wasn’t sure how I’d get on using the shower foam at first, I’ve used them before and some have dried out my skin. This one didn’t in the slightest, my skin felt hydrated afterwards, once again you only need to use half a pump to get your whole body clean. It’s also in an aerosol can and the consistency is light and fluffy, I did feel as though I was showering myself with a bottle of the squirty cream you’d use on your trifle. It has the most incredibly delicious summer fragrance, as though you’re being showered with melons and sweet raspberries. One morning I’d run out of shaving foam and this made an excellent substitute, it certainly smelt a lot sweeter.
I’ve really enjoyed using this range over the summer and at only £3.99 they are such a great bargain. Bilou really haven’t compromised on the quality, not all body care I’ve tried at this price point is as good. Their products smell amazing and leave my skin feeling soft, oh and can I just mention, how cute the packaging is!
