Fizz Bar from Zoella Beauty - available from Superdrug
I'm pretty late to the game with the whole Zoella Beauty bandwagon, having never purchased anything from the range before, but I recently signed up to take part in some beauty product testing and the first thing that arrived was the increasingly popular Fizz Bar. Aside from the Real Techniques brushes, I haven't really bought in to the YouTuber merch/beauty ranges at all, so I was really looking forward to seeing how well this fared. The Fizz Bar has been totally raved about in the past and I believe it's actually won some sort of award also - so you'd expect it to be pretty good.
I really loved the packaging of the Fizz Bar, it was cute and girly which definitely fits in very well with the rest of my beauty stash. The paper packaging is relatively thick and the bar itself is protected with a layer of clingfilm which is handy as there's a fair bit of dust residue. Another thing I loved about the Fizz Bar was the scent - fresh, floral and a hint of sweetness that is right up my street. It's not one for those who prefer a muskier scent, but it's definitely a hit with me!
The bar is split in to 8 squares which can be easily broken off and used as & when you need them, pretty handy in comparison to some Lush bath bombs which aren't quite so easy to split. The cubes are quite small but the instructions claim that one is enough for a bath.
Once you've popped one of the cubes in to a bath there's a fair bit of initial fizz, however this quickly subsides and in the end you're left with quite a slow burner. It takes a while to dissolve and even then it does leave a bit of grainy residue at the bottom of the bath. It did make my water a bit foamier than usual and it felt quite silky on my skin, but aside from that it's not all too exciting. At first I couldn't really distinguish the scent, however once the cube had disintegrated a bit more it did fill the room.
I might have been ruined by the excitement of Lush bath bombs, but overall I found the bar a little bit of a disappointment. It wasn't awful by any means, I just had high expectations! At £5 it isn't too pricey, it's on a par with Lush, but I do feel like the Lush products provide a more luxurious experience on the whole and therefore are more value for money.
Have you tried anything from Zoella Beauty? I'd love to hear what you thought!
