If you have been around any of the high street cosmetic stores recently then you would have seen the new up-and-coming cosmetic range by Bilou. This stylish German company has hit the UK health and beauty stores hard, with the likes of Superdrug supporting the movement.
Bilou is like no other cosmetic range because it guarantees 100% vegan ingredients. With the whole world being more and more conscious of the products they not only eat but also the products they use on their skin, Bilou has launched at the perfect time. The brand creator Bibi started off as a Youtuber back in 2012 but wanted a shower gel that has a lasting fragrance is super creamy and doesn’t cause harm to any creatures in the making. Alongside boyfriend and business parter, Julian, Bibi created Bilou.
After hearing so much positivity towards this German brand I had to try it out for myself. The creamy shower foam seems to be one of the most popular products on sale. With a range of scents I thought I would try something different to what I’m used to. Pink Melon. An extremely fruity scent and very refreshing fragrance of juicy melon. The scent remains strong as the silky foam is applied to your skin in the shower. The most delicious body wash I have ever tried.
Bilou have a range of other products on offer such as hand foam, cleaners and body sprays. Trying out the Cotton Candy inspired gentle cream foam was such a treat. A sweet caramel flavour of foam just automatically gets your nose going and puts you in a great mood. I personally am not the biggest fan of sweet smelling products but this one won my heart over reminding me of a fair ground cotton candy stall. Perfect!
On the stunning website Bilou guarantee that all of their products have been dermatologically tested receiving a status of ‘Dermatest excellence’ and granted compatibility will all skin types. These products made with love and passion really do sweeten your day and for the cost of just £3.99 each (in UK Superdrug stores) you really can’t miss out on these yummy fragrances.
A ‘blooming brilliant’ fragrance of coconuts reminds me of my summer holidays. A sweet scent in the Coco Cocktail range is the perfect way to re-live those sunny days. The 2-in-1 body spray and deodorant is ideal with a tropical paradise with the strong essence of creamy coconut and tropical madagascan vanilla. I think this range is my favourite that Bilou have created. I just love the scent so much and with summer being my favourite time of year there is nothing better than smelling like “sun” all year round.
Other scents which are also available in Superdrug and on Bilou website include fizzy berry a mix of tingly berry shoer with a spritz of lemon and tasty donut. Think freshly baked doughnuts with fruity strawberry icing, but in a shower gel, body spray and cream..heaven!
For those of you across the pond or further don’t panic, this fresh faced brand may be available for you too. Bilou is currently stocked and ready to purchase in Germany, the UK, Austria, Switzerland and most recently Serbia. And if this doesn’t include you home country don’t fear, at the rate this brands popularity is growing I have a gut feeling it will be going fully global. Watch this step.
