Zoella Let's Glow Candle - Disappointment

I am terrible when it comes to new products. If I see something new I have to give it a try, even more so when there is huge hype surrounding a new range in the blogging world.

I spotted some of Zoella's new beauty products in my local Superdrug. 

The fizz bars and bath soak didn't float my boat. However, I am a massive candle lover and couldn't resist the cute packaging. 

This is the Let's Glow candle by Zoella Beauty, it costs £5 from Superdrug. 

In the tin it smells lovely, to me it smells like a mixture of fruit and baby powder, sweet and comforting but not overpowering. 

The packaging is also another reason I was drawn to this candle, I love candles in tins while the pink text and polka dot design of this candle caught my eye instantly.

Unfortunately this is where the positives of the candle end.

Once lit my candle gave off no scent. Nothing. Infact, you wouldn't even know it was supposed to be a scented candle.

I tried standing right infront of the candle wafting it to see if I could smell anything. Nope, not a smidge. 

At first I just thought the candle had a poor scent throw, but this candle didn't give off any scent at all.

I was so excited to try my first purchase from the Zoella beauty line but I won't be buying this again. The candle itself is small, so quite expensive for how much product you get for you cash.

I might give the other products a try but for me the candle was a disappointment.

Have you tried any of Zoella's products? 


  1. Sad to hear they weren't great! I'm glad you gave an honest review, however. Great post!

    1. Thanks so much Kelsey. I know, I had such high hopes for this because so many people were raving about it x

  2. I smelled it in superdrug and thought it smelled quite nice, shame to hear it wasn't a great purchase though - it has to be pretty and actually work! Good to see an honest review too x

    1. Thanks so much. I had high hopes for this candle. I don't know if I had a bad one because so many people were raving about it. x

  3. I haven't seen the line in store what's the fragrance actually like? So sorry to hear that the candle wasn't good so may scented candles have no scent throw - more praise for your honest review too x

    1. Hi Louise, the actual fragrance in the tin was lovely, sweet, light, not headache inducing. Such a shame it didn't give off the scent when lit. Thanks so much for your kind words x

  4. Awww, I'm sad to hear it wasn't as good as promised! I was contemplating getting it, but will probably leave it if it's not smelly! Lol
    I bought the Minty coloured make-up bag and was very pleased with its quality and size!
    I think I'll buy the Shower Cream and leave it at that.
    Great honest review! :)
