Christmas Stocking Fillers With Bilou

Please don’t ask me anything about beauty blogging because I won’t be able to help (my makeup bag has like 3 items). However, I do know an awesome looking brand when I see one. I’ve noticed bilou products pop up around the blog world for a while now and I’ve always admired their cool and colourful packaging. The other week, I was asked if I’d like to review their shower foams and body sprays and even though I don’t blog about beauty, I do wash and like to smell nice, so I thought go on then, it’s Christmas!

Don’t you think these would make the cutest stocking fillers? All bilou products are made with love and passion, taking inspiration for fragrances from all that is delicious and fun. The brand is 100% vegan and cruelty free, plus it’s all silicone, paraben, mineral oil free as well. bilou is super kind to the skin and make the most creamiest, sweetest smelling shower foams, ever. You can buy bilou products from Superdrug.

I was sent two creamy shower foams in Cotton Candy and Tasty Donut, plus the Coco Cocktail 2 in 1 Body Spray. The packaging is totally Instagram-worthy, I love the cute little doodles, yay for rainbow candy floss!

Cotton Candy smells just like a mix of candy floss, sweets, marshmallow and caramel – absolute heaven! It reminds me of those fruit salad chews that always came with black jacks, but everyone knew the fruit salads were the nicer of the pair. It’s super creamy (a little goes a long way) and made from all good things like aloe vera, almond and avocado oils to gently cleanse and nourish the skin.

Tasty Donut smells deliciously like a big bag of strawberry laces, it’s delightful! I love that each of these shower foams remind me of being a kid again and take me on a 90’s nostalgic trip back to the newsagents, buying pick’n’mix and getting a copy of Smash Hits Magazine. As well as the sweet stuff, it also contains almonds and olive oil to keep the skin soft and healthy.

You can follow bilou on Instagram and keep up with the delicious range!

Coco Cocktail 2 in 1 Body Spray smells like a Caribbean party of sunshine, reggae music, coconuts and Piña colada cocktails. It’s a little bit of tropical paradise on a Wintery day. The 2 in 1 part means that it can be used as both a nourishing perfume spray and a deodorant too. The moisturising ingredients reduce the tightness of dry skin, leaving it feeling silky smooth and coconutty.

I hope you enjoyed my bilou review and maybe it’s inspired a couple of cute Christmas stocking filler ideas! Thank you to bilou for sending me these wonderful products, I’m very much loving the summery beach vibes during the colder darker months. You can see the full range at Superdrug and check out the other scrumptious flavours such as Fizzy Berry and Pink Melon. Have you tried bilou shower creams and body sprays? Which flavours are your favourite? Let me know in the comments – I’d love to hear from you!

    Bexa, your photos are so dreamy!! The opening sentences of this post made me laugh – I know nothing about make up, either. I’ve seen a few reviews of these and I definitely need to get some. I love anything that smells sweet and is a bit more fun than your standard shower gels/creams. Your description of Coco Cocktail sounds amazing, and I think I’d really like that one. Also, Smash Hits was THE BEST! :’) xxx

    • December 17, 2018 / 12:43 pm

      Aww, thank you so much for the lovely comment Ruth! I’m glad I’m not the only one who is clueless about makeup, he he! Coco Cocktail smells so sweet and tropical, I’m wearing it now and dreaming of the beach. Yay for Smash Hits too! <3 xxx

  2. December 17, 2018 / 9:57 am

    Aww, you had me until “almond oil” – I’ve a major nut allergy and can’t use anything with that in. Shame, because they do look cute and sound like they smell amazing.

    • December 17, 2018 / 1:32 pm

      Aww no, that is a shame! I agree, the packaging is so cute and they smell so nice! Thanks for the comment Misa! <3 xx

  3. December 17, 2018 / 4:33 pm

    I’ve seen bilou pop up on other blogs too and every time I walk past their products in Superdrug. I think the fragrances are probably too sweet for me but I know exactly who would LOVE them, especially if they’re as moisturising as they sound. Your idea of using them for stocking fillers is perfect, Flora is going to be very happy on Christmas Day! And I agree with you completely about fruit salads, and Smash Hits – I always had an inner battle over whether or not to rip out the posters because of the inevitable song lyrics on the back, haha. Lovely review and gorgeous photos as always, Bexa, thank you for sharing! xx

      Thanks so much for the sweet comment Lisa! Aww yes, I’m sure Flora will love them, they are such a cute stocking filler! He he, yay for fruit salads and yesss I had the same dilemma with Smash Hits, although if it was a Robbie Williams poster, there was no debate, it went straight on the wall, haha! I’m glad you enjoyed the post lovely <3 xx

  4. December 17, 2018 / 5:05 pm

    Your photos are so beautiful! I’ve seen a few bilou products on other blogs, and they’ve always gotten such rave reviews! They sound like they smell absolutely gorgeous, and they are so pretty as well! I’ve got a few secret santas this year and I think this would be ideal! Also I love the smell of strawberry laces so I’d definitely beeline for Tasty Donut!

      Thanks so much for the lovely comment Hels! Ooh yes, these would make perfect Secret Santa gifts, good thinking! Tasty Donut is such a delicious smell, it makes me actually crave strawberry laces haha! <3 xx

    I’ve never heard of these before but they’re so cute, I want them all! They seem like they’d make a good present for both children and adults (I wouldn’t complain if someone bought me these and I’m in my 30s!).


    • December 18, 2018 / 12:14 pm

      Thanks so much for the kind comment Nicola! I agree, I’m in my 30’s too and I’d be super happy with these in my stocking! <3 xx

    I keep seeing Bilou products all over the blogging world but I’m ashamed to say I still haven’t tried them. They look incredible though, I love that they have such unique scents and are a little pop of energy and brightness into a routine. And you’re right, the packaging is gorgeous. I think I’d love the body spray, that’d make me feel like I was on a Caribbean holiday! And the cotton candy scent sounds incredible too. I really need to pick some of these up! Stunning photos too 🙂

  9. December 17, 2018 / 5:42 pm

    Oooo Bexa, I want to try the Coco Cocktail, I’m for anything that makes me feel like I’m sipping on a coconut while laid out on the beach, it’s my dream come true or at least an easy way to fantasize😂. I’m glad you did this post because I heard about Bilou but was hesitant. Think I’ll check it out a bit more now 😁

    Girl I’m pretty basic at makeup myself, so I can totally relate haha! These products sound so dreamy & definitely perfect as a stocking stuffer. I think that Tasty Donut would definitely be my choice out of these three x

    • December 18, 2018 / 12:34 pm

      He he, I’m glad you can relate! Ooh yes, Tasty Donut is delightful! I’m glad you enjoyed the post and thanks for the lovely comment! <3 xx

    These are fab stocking fillers, and they also sound amazing! The Tasty Donut one that smells like strawberry laces oh my word, they’re my absolute favourite sweets ever, so I think I might need to put that in my stocking myself hehe. I love the packaging of these, they’re so cute and colourful, and you’re so right even though you don’t blog much beauty they go so well with your amazing colourful theme ♥️ lovely post as alwayssss!!

  15. December 18, 2018 / 1:24 am

    “I do wash and like to smell nice” I don’t know why but that part had me in stitches. I’ve seen Bilou products pop up a lot on people’s blogs and they always say such great things about the scents! The packaging is super cute too. They sound like they’re made from quality ingredients which is always amazing x


    • December 18, 2018 / 1:09 pm

      Hehehe, I’m glad it made you laugh, it sounded kinda funny when I typed it. I’m glad you enjoyed the post lovely, the scents are amazing! Thanks for the kind comment Sophie! <3 xx

  16. December 18, 2018 / 9:50 am

    I love Bilou for cutest packaging and scents! I have the coconut spray and totally agree with you- it completely makes you feel like you could be in the Caribbean (if you close your eyes and put the heating on really high haha). I love the watermelon scent too but would love to try the donut and cotton candy ones, they sound amazing.

    • December 18, 2018 / 1:11 pm

      Hehe, “if you close your eyes and put the heating on really high” that made me laugh! Ooh, I’ll have to give the watermelon scent a try sometime, I imagine it smells so nice too! Thanks for the lovely comment Soph, I’m glad you enjoyed the post <3 xx

  17. December 18, 2018 / 2:05 pm

    Haven’t heart of this brand yet; but you’re right! Their packaging is beyond adorable! And I love how you used your pretty Christmas decorations from your DIY post as a backdrop! You should totally do a photography tips post!!

    I love the adorable packing bilou has for their products. I love that they are 100% vegan and cruelty free, plus it’s all silicone, paraben, mineral oil free as well. I would like to try Coco Cocktail. The bilou shower foam and body spray would make a fabulous stocking stuffer for women.

      Thank you so much Deb! I agree, they are such a great product and the perfect stocking filler! I’m glad you enjoyed the post lovely <3 xx

    These are amazing! The packaging is ADORABLE! I hadn’t heard of this brand before, but I’ll definitely have to grab a few of their products when I’m next in Superdrug, they sound like they smell amazing. Especially tasty donut, I would LOVE that one! I think my sister would too, and I needed another small little gift to go with her present so I think this would be great! So thank you! 😀 Also, is it bad that I actually preferred the black jack sweets over the fruit salad? 😂


    • December 19, 2018 / 6:18 pm

      Thank you so much for the sweet comment Amy! Aww yay, I hope your sister loves them, they are such a cute gift idea. Tasty donut smells so nice! He he, the black jacks were okay but team fruit salads all the way for me! I’m glad you enjoyed the post lovely <3 xx

Love the sweet scents as that’s my fragrance preference generally. Lucky you being sent all those to try – fab aren’t they and being vegan and CF is lovely! x
