I’m back with another review for you today. There has been a lot of hype within the blogging community for the NEW Zoella range so I thought I would nip it in the bud with my review on the ‘Bath Fizzer’.
Even though I wasn’t a huge fan of the Fizz Bar from Zoella’s original range (read my full review here) – I wanted to give the Zoe the benefit of the doubt and see if there was any improvement on the original range.
I am going to start on a positive note! I do really love the branding and packaging of the bath fizzer. I think the packaging is spot on as it’s very cute and girlie. I love the lace effect that’s printed on the wrapper and it’s the kinda product that’s nice to have on display in your bathroom. I also really like the fact that each of the cubes is embossed with a bow, which is a really nice touch.
Sadly it all starts to go slightly downhill from here. The product is made up of four white blocks so you can use it for four baths, although it’s quite good value for money (£5.00 for 4 baths) I still don’t think this is justified due to the quality of the product. Once in the water the black fizzes at an alarmingly slow rate (as shown in the photo below). Whilst in the tub it doesn’t really give off any sort of noticeable scent. It also doesn’t change the colour of the water or create any bubbles – which really is what I expect when using a bath bomb kind of product.
I really dislike writing negative reviews, but I know a lot of people would buy into the hype with this product so I thought it was really important to put my honest thoughts across! I did feel quite disappointed with this product as it provides very little excitement and just leaves the bath looking like a regular bath, you can’t really tell that you’ve used a bath product.
I completely understand that Zoella’s range is aimed more at younger girls and teenagers, but I still feel she could have done a better job with this product whist keeping it at an affordable price. I think it’s important to take into consideration that this product has to compete with the likes of LUSH and Bomb cosmetics bath bombs which are much more exciting! With the theme of the range being Tutti Fruity I think something like fruit shaped bombs e.g. A Raspberry bomb which is bright pink and looks like a giant raspberry, would be a much better and more fun idea.
Overall this product gets 3/10 and I will not be repurchasing it (Sorry Zoe!).
Let me know your thoughts if you have tried any of the product from the New Zoella range?
