That moment stood under the hot water of your morning shower can make or break a day. Get it right and you’re invigorated, energised and ready to face the world; but get it wrong and you can be left feeling dreary, lethargic and in need of a double espresso. We totally underestimate the power of that morning cleanse and the product we use to set us up to win, but the scents and textures that greet us first thing could be the secret to a day-long smile! I’m always one to embrace new textures and uplifting scents in the bathroom (hello chocolate hand wash and strawberry bubble bath,) but with Bilou my sweet tooth has gone into overdrive: this new brand to hit UK shores is completely vegan and full of sugary sweetness to kick off your day in the right way, whatever your age.
Created by German blogger Bibi of Bibi’s Beauty Palace, Bilou is a capsule range of foaming shower gels and body creams (as well as a couple of body sprays which are too young and sweet for my personal tastes – think Body Secrets x Impulse) that takes sweet treats to a whole new level. Available in Pink Melon, Tasty Donut, Fizzy Berry, Cotton Candy and Coco Cocktail, they smell exactly how you’d anticipate – apart from the donut variety which is more pink icing than anything else. The foaming textures are incredibly lightweight and a pleasure to use, creating something a little different in your morning shower; I remember when shower foams first became a thing and I’ve never tired of the format, even if they don’t seem to be as popular as they once were.
The shower foam cleanses gently but effectively, without irritating or overwhelming the senses, leaving skin feeling supple and delicately scented; I adore the creamy texture and the way it envelops my limbs for those few morning moments! Additionally the body cream is lightly moisturising without causing stickiness (it absorbs within a matter of seconds,) which makes these a real treat for only £3.99 a pop. It’s no hardworking body cream, but it is a simple and effective way to add a quick hit of hydration first thing. I love everything about Bilou… They could’ve easily gone down the sickly sweet teen route and ended up with something OTT and quickly naff, but instead the whole range is elegant and simple while keeping things fun.
Now available in Superdrug, I’ve no doubt these will be incredibly popular with their customers – and even drive some new ones into store!
