The Sweet Body Treats from Bilou

I was first introduced to Bilou through Zoe Sugg. She had featured the brand in one of her PR haul videos on Youtube and I was instantly drawn into the brand. Not only is the packaging of the products fun, colourful and a little bit quirky, but the thought of smelling like a delicious iced donut had me licking my lips. I mean, who doesn't want to smell like a freshly baked donut? I am a sucker for sweet scents!

 Bilou hails from Germany and was founded by a succesful youtuber(Bibis Beauty Palace) and only just launched here in the UK late last year. They currently stock three delicious treats for the body- the Gentle Cream Foam, Creamy Shower Foam and the 2 in 1 Bodyspray, and the good news is that they are all vegan friendly too. This makes me so happy!
The Sweet Body Treats from Bilou
There are five different scents to choose from, though they're not all sweet scented. There is Tasty Donut, Cotton Candy, Fizzy Berry, Pink Melon and Coco Cocktail. There are many other scents too, but unfortunately they're not available in the UK right now. I pray they bring more to the UK. I especially love the sound of Vanilla Cake Pop and Chocolate Cupcake. Let's hope we don't get left out and they arrive on our side of the water soon.

I received the Tasty Donut Creamy Shower Foam(£3.99) and the Cotton Candy Creamy Shower Foam(£3.99) for Christmas and I was also kindly gifted the *Fizzy Berry Gentle Cream Foam and *Fizzy Berry 2in1 Bodyspray. I've been using them non stop. In fact, I've nearly ran out of the Bodyspray and the Gentle Cream Foam already.

If you like your sweet scents like me then I'm so sure you would love the Tasty Donut and Cotton Candy scented shower foams. They do smell very sweet but they're not overpowering and sickly. Anything that smells too strong gives me a headache but they don't seem to do that which makes me so happy. Tasty Donut is described as smelling like a freshly baked donut with a fruity strawberry icing, and I can say it smells exactly like that. It's delicious. As for Cotton Candy, it smells exactly like that but with a hint of sweet caramel. Oh, it's just divine. They both smell amazing, but I'd say that Tasty Donut is the strongest out of the two. After use the scent lingers on the skin for hours after too which I just love.

As soon as you pump the product out, a foam is instantly dispersed. I made the mistake of pressing the applicator too hard the first time round as too much product came out. Only a small amount is needed to lather up the whole body. They are so creamy and they make my skin feel ever so soft and I find them to work extremely well when shaving too.

The *Fizzy Berry Gentle Foam(£3.99) is entirely different to the shower foam. At first I thought it was exactly the same, but for more sensitive skin, but then I came to find that it's to be used AFTER showering rather than during. It is a moisturising body lotion in the form of a foam. I have never used anything like it before but it's a stroke of genius, honestly. It's fast and efficient and it moisturises and soaks into my skin quicker than my usual body moisturiser, it's incredible. Now, the scent is very fruity and zingy. It certainly gives me a little pep in my step come morning.

Last but not least is the *Fizzy Berry 2 in 1 Bodyspray(£3.99). Now, you can either use this as a bodyspray or a deodorant, or both. I have tried using it as a deodorant but I prefer to use it as a body mist as I feel I need a little more protection, but I'm happy to say it was really gentle on my underarms though. I spritz this on an almost daily basis. As I mentioned before, it's a very fruity scent, but with a lemon twist to it. It smells amazing, and the scent lingers for hours after spritzing it. 

Every product from Bilou is not just incredible quality, but lots of thought has gone into the packaging and I love that everything is so well priced and affordable too. They're such good value for money. £3.99 per product is amazing. I'll have to stock up on a few bits soon.

Have you tried anything from Bilou before? If so, let me know your thoughts!
