Your bathroom is begging you to use Zoella bath and body products

What makes a blogger happy? The success of other bloggers! The beauty blogging community is a tremendously supportive group. There isn’t any room for jealousy or pettiness and true beauty bloggers celebrate the successes of our sisters. A blogger we are here to celebrate today is Zoe Sugg, the gorgeous UK fashion and beauty vlogger.

 

With Zoella Beauty, Zoe hopes to take us back to a time where a bath was an indulgent experience rather than a chore. As a sufferer of anxiety, Zoe was thrilled to create a range of products that would aid the mind as well as the body, taking users to the paradise of relaxation and serenity.

We love her adorable line of bath and beauty products that can be found at Target, and we have several to share with you today.

Zoella Scooper Dooper Foaming Bath Soak

I love taking baths and I really love smelling good so my two Zoella items are a perfect mix for me! The Scooper Dooper Foaming Bath Soak ($11) is a big tub of bubble bath.  It smells fabulous, super fresh and slightly floral, and it does fantastic things to your bath water and to your skin.

This thick bubble bath has vitamin E, shea butter, and aloe which are all incredibly soothing. You don’t need much of the bubble bath for tons of thick, rich bubbles so this tub will last a very long time.

Follow up a nice, hot bubble bath with a generous spritz of the Blissful Mistful Body Mist ($12.95) for a fantastic treat.

Top notes are strawberry and grapefruit, middle notes are violet, jasmine, and gardenia, and base notes are vanilla and musk. It’s a soft, sweet, feminine scent that is warm and cozy, and simply perfect after a Scooper Dooper Foaming Bath Soak bubble bath.

Marcia is enjoying Wondrous Whip Body Cream and Pretty Polished Sugar Scrub

Somewhere along the way the original Marcia who wrote on Beauty Info Zone and had no tolerance for anything fragranced got replaced by the new Marcia who has an appreciation for mild fragrances. We’re not sure where old Marcia went but the new one is having a lot more fun.

Zoella Pretty Polished Sugar Scrub

Zoella Pretty Polished Sugar Scrub

Zoella Pretty Polished Sugar Scrub ($12) is the newest bath/body product that is in my shower. This is a gentle scrub that makes my skin feel soft for days. It is a very light fragranced scrub with tiny seeds to make it a little scrubby. It starts as a solid balm that I scoop out with my fingers.

The scent is described as fresh and floral. Floral is the part that usually annoys me but this is definitely a fresh smell and the fragrance doesn’t linger. I really like this on my legs as it buffs away dry skin and leaves my legs looking softer and cleaner.

You can find this large jar at Target or target.com. I love that the jar is a heavy plastic so I’m not afraid it might slip in the shower, in addition I’ll be able to get every bit out with its wide opening.

Zoella Wondrous Whip Body Cream

Zoella Wondrous Whip Body Cream ($12) has a complementary fragrance although I think it’s even lighter than the scrub. It’s got a mousse like texture and is light as air. It spreads with ease leaving skin feeling silky.

Zoella Wondrous Whip Body Cream contains extracts of Vitamin E, Aloe, and Shea Butter so you know your skin is being nourished while it’s being softened. You’ll want to run your hands over your skin when this is part of your daily routine; you just won’t believe how you feel transformed with its silkiness.

All 4 of these Zoella bath and body products work well with each other. The scents are similar but different enough to make owning all 4 work unique. Putting together a basket of Zoella would make you and yours feel pampered. And it’s easily found at Target.

Get ready for your Heart Throb…Lush for Valentine’s Day

Lush Heart Throb

I am in love with an absolute heart throb. No, not Joe Manganiello…he has Sophia Vergara now so I have moved on. My new love is Lush’s Heart Throb Bubbleroon. It does indeed make my heart go pitter-patter with all that seductive red and glittery gold…not to mention the promise of a super sudsy bubble bath that will leave my skin soft, moisturized, and gleaming. $8.95 is a small price to pay for this big heart that makes for four fabulous bubble baths.

Inside this beautiful heart hides tons of shea butter to pamper skin, as well as ylang ylang and geranium oils. This is one heart I am happy to break!  I twist it in half, break it apart, then break it into more pieces – four in all – and one piece turns my bubble bath a seductive orangey red with golden shimmer and lots of bubbles. The scent is fabulous, a soft floral that is just beautiful.

Who needs Joe when I have this Heart Throb? Pick this up at Lush for a fabulous Valentine’s Day treat for yourself!  – Lisa

10 Budget Friendly Back-to-School Beauty Essentials

Whether you or your kids are going back to school or off to college, it’s the perfect time of year to find deals on essential beauty products.  The Meijer Beauty team challenged me to find my top back-to-school picks, and it was gratifying to see my must-have bath, body and color items with wonderful prices.  Considering I work in a high school and have kids in both college and middle school, I am all about finding the best products at the right price.  Drumroll please…my top ten recommendations for essential (and budget friendly) back-to-school products.

Soap for school:  J.R. Watkins Foaming Hand Soap and I love...Coconut & Cream Shower Gel

Soap for school: J.R. Watkins Foaming Hand Soap and I love…Coconut & Cream Bubble Bath and Shower Cream

1.  J.R. Watkins Foaming Hand Soap ($4.99, I got it at Meijer for $4.49)  The reason I first bought this hand soap was for the awesome vintage label.  The reason I keep buying it?  It’s excellent foaming hand soap, especially for the price.  The soap in public buildings like schools is usually pretty rough stuff, I wash my hands all the time.  My solution is to bring my own.  I keep this soap in my office, and it would fit nicely into a locker.  I like the Aloe and Green Tea scent as a real mood enhancer to help get the school year off right.

2.  I love…Coconut & Cream Bubble Bath and Shower Cream ($7.29)  This British brand is soooo good…doesn’t the packaging look like the Philosophy bottles?  I actually prefer the I love… brand, and it is so much more affordable.  I start my day with a shower then end it with a bubble bath, and the Coconut & Cream scent takes me right back onto vacation.

Necessities for school

3.  Goody 50 piece Ouchless No Metal Elastics ($2.19, but I got mine at Meijer for $1.10!)  The perfect way to hide morning bedhead is with a ponytail or bun…and these Ouchless Elastics don’t snag, pull, or break hair strands.

4.  Nivea Lip Butter in Caramel Cream Kiss ($3.99)  This super cute lip butter has only been available in the U.S. for about a year, and I am so happy it’s easily found now!  It has great slip and keeps lips soft and moist, plus it tastes like caramel toffee.  Yum.

5.  Meijer Hand Sanitizer ($1.19)  This is simply a must-have for purses and backpacks.  You never know who was sitting in that desk or what nose they were picking…eewwwwww.

Perfect colors for back to school!

Nudes and deep pinks

Nudes and berries

6.  Cover Girl Bombshell Volume by Lashblast Mascara ($9.39)  I think this is the best drugstore mascara out there.  One end is the base coat, which gives definition and length perfect for casual days.  When I want more oomph – and I mean fantastic oomph – I use the other end, the intensifying top coat.  This side darkens lashes and provides mega-drama without any flakes or smearing.

Physician's Formula Nude Eyes

Nude Eyes - gorgeous.

Nude Eyes – gorgeous.

7.  Physician’s Formula Nude Eyes ($9.99, but I got mine at Meijer for an incredible $6.99)  I am loving neutral, nude eyes with berry cheeks for the fall, and this nude eyeshadow palette is to die for.  Is it reminding you of the Urban Decay Naked2 palette?  Yup, me too, but this is way cheaper with the same quality.  Use these shadows dry or wet for more intensity, and keep the palette sitting out because the packaging is stunning.

Maybelline Hi-Lighting Blush in Pink Rose

8.  Maybelline Hi-Lighting Blush in Pink Rose ($8.29)  Just check out the gorgeousness of this mosaic highlighter/blush.  The soft, creamy shades can be used alone, but I like to swirl a big brush over the whole thing for a beautiful berry glow on my cheeks.

Nicole by OPI mani and pedi shades for school

9 and 10.  Nicole by OPI Nail Polish in Sing You Like a Bee and Cocoa a Gogo ($5.99 each)  Going back to school is an awesome reason to treat yourself to a manicure and a pedicure, and these two shades are perfect for a nude and berry combo.

Sing You Like a Bee

Sing You Like a Bee

Sing You Like a Bee is from the Carrie Underwood collection.  This is a gorgeous sheer white with golden shimmers.  It is a beautiful shimmery nude look by itself, and it makes a perfect top layer over pretty much any color.

Cocoa a Gogo

Cocoa a Gogo

Cocoa a Gogo is a shimmery chocolate-brown that I love for pedicures…and it is the perfect color for transitioning into cool days and cozy nights by the fire.  Even better, it smells like cinnamon!

Not only are these ten products essentials, it also costs less than $55 to purchase them all at Meijer.  Get your style on for back to school and save money too!

Be sure to check out MeijerStyle.com the last week in August for a post with links to lots of blogger Back-to-School articles – one lucky person who comments on the MeijerStyle.com post will receive a gift basket of Back-to-School/Back-to-College products.  – Lisa
