If you read this blog post back in October, you will know that I made a few cheeky purchases from the Zoella Beauty range. I wanted to show my support for the YouTube & Blogging community and pick up just a few bits to see what Zoe's line is all about. In Part One , I did a review on Fizz Bar, and now it is the turn of Blissful Mistful - the fragranced body mist.
Firstly, let's talk about the packaging. Isn't it adorable? Following a similar design to the Fizz Bar, the polla-dotted bottle is quintessentially Zoella, and appeals to me greatly. The choice of using a glass bottle makes the body mist feel really luxurious and much more expensive. I think the choice of a square bottle is really chic, and the rose-gold coloured lid is a really elegant and feminine touch. It appeals to me as a woman in my late twenties, and I think it definitely appeals to teenagers too.The really simplistic design definitely looks very grown up.
The scent of Blissful Mistful is exactly the same as Fizz Bar -fresh, floral and ever-so-slightly citrus-sy. I prefer the scent a lot more in the body mist form, because, every time I have use it, it immediately makes me feel refreshed. It's one of those scents I always go to if I feel I need a little refreshing pick-me-up.
Does the formula of Blissful Mistful have lasting power? No. Not really. Am I disappointed? A little bit. Who doesn't like a perfume or body spray that once spritzed on your skin lasts all day? One of the reasons I left so long in between Zoella Beauty reviews is because I really wanted to give the body mist a chance. I used it as a day perfume, a night perfume, and to the gym (for road testing and sweaty BO control!) Don't get me wrong, I think the body mist is really versatile, and the scent is suitable for a variety of occasions, but pretty much as soon as I sprayed it on my skin, the smell would disappear. Now, to be fair, I don't know if Blissful Mistful is designed to be a fragrance that lasts all day, but I don't think anything is meant to fade that quickly. On my clothes, it's a different story, and the scent of the body mist lasts for ages. Boyfriend has commented a few times on how nice it smells when he's sitting next to me and catches a whiff, and when I tell him what it is, he is really surprised.
So. Would I buy Blissful Mistful again? If I was 10 years younger, maybe, but as a twenty-seven year old I think I'm a bit out of the demographic to really appreciate the product. I think if you're a teenager girl, or woman in your early twenties, and looking for a boy spray/perfume hybrid. Ten plus years ago, when I was so excited to find a body mist or body spray that rivalled my all-time favourite Impulse fragrances it would be perfect. But now, Id rather save my pennies and save up for a higher end perfume that has a more mature and long-lasting scent. I think I'm just beyond the body mist phase (unless I'm leaving the gym of course.) I also think that the price tag is just a little too steep. Don't get me wrong, my bottle is sitting next to me and I have loads left, but if I was younger, and this potentially the only fragrance I owned, I think it would vanish far too fast to justify money.
To summarise, I think I am just too old to appreciate what Blissful Mistful has to offer. However, I think this would make an ideal gift for a teenage relative for the upcoming festive season.
