The Youtuber Beauty Products

This is a delightful candle - it's a tin packaging which means no trying to rid candle holders of leftover wax. The scent of this candle is described as a "gentle blend of white wood accents, sweet vanilla and soft floral notes". My own nose thinks this smells like clean washing and it's very fresh and light. One thing I noticed about this candle in particular is it burns extremely evenly - something which I hadn't experienced before with larger candles. I especially like this candle on Sunday nights when I've just crawled into my bed with fresh sheets. 

The concept for this bar is a thing of dreams - it consists of 8 squares so you can break off as many as you'd like for your bath. I used two squares in my latest bath but would probably use three or four in the future. The consistency is a little chalky but if you break the bar over the bath, this isn't a problem. The bar aims to transform your bath into a fresh and fragrant soak - I wouldn't say the fragrance is powerful i,e, Lush but there's definite fresh scent that lingers in the air. I like to pair this with the Let's Glow candle as the scents compliment each other well.

The formula to this gloss is extremely thick - the consistency feels similar to a liquid lipstick, however it doesn't set or stain the lips. The colour is highly pigmented on the lips, this particular shade is a dusty rose (it's comes off a little brighter in the photo) with an underlying subtle gold shimmer. Oh and did I mention the scent is strawberry laces? And not a subtle smell at that... the smell is strong and absolutely delicious. The doe foot applicator allows just the right amount of gloss to be picked up and it distributes it well, it's also flexible which allows precise application.

However, the expiry date on this gloss is 3 months whereas some other glosses of a similar price are 24 months. While I don't personally pay a lot of attention to expiry dates, it seems amiss that technically I should throw the gloss away within a short space of time. 

These two girls are some of my favourite youtubers by far and I'm really ecstatic that they're bringing out delightful products that you can tell have been created by them. The Zoella range include other products such as a body mist and bath soak and the Tanya Burr range include 11 more gloss shades and 10 nail varnish shades. Tanya Burr has added to her range with fake lashes! They are all extremely wearable and I'm looking forward to trying them out. 

Have any of you tried other Zoella/Tanya Burr products? Let me know if you recommend anything else! Also, let me know in the comments if there's any blog posts you'd like me to write in the future!
