Good enough to eat? Beautifully Delicious Strawberry & Pomegranate Review

The childlike part of me still gets a little excited at the thought of foodie beauty so I was delighted to be invited to try these products from wallet friendly brand, Beautifully Delicious.
The range encompasses various fruit inspired fragrances such as Papaya & Mango, Honey & Almond, Coconut & Shea and Strawberry & Pomegranate, as I was sent.
I think the bold packaging is suited to the brand and well considered, even featuring bite marks at the corner of the labels.
I rarely indulge in baths so tried the gel in the shower. I adored the unashamedly girlie pink colour and, being unaccustomed to SLS based shower gels (as, for the most part, I use natural shower gel these days), found it lathered beautifully. The scent isn't juicy and fruity as I had anticipated but reminiscent of strawberry sweeties. I couldn't detect any pomegranate although it's suitably pleasant while you use it, without lingering on skin and giving away your guilty beauty secret afterwards!
Of course, if you do like the scent, you can follow with the body butter, which has a delectable strawberry fragrance and is zestier than the shower gel. Compared with The Body Shop Body Butters, this has a softer texture akin to a very rich cream. It doesn't melt into skin and although I only used a small amount on my dry legs, it did take a while to rub in, with a ghostly white residue at first. The best thing about the body butter is that it doesn't feel greasy at all.
The Bath & Shower gel is a bargain at £2.99 for 500ml and the Body Butter is £4.99 for 200ml.

Like their foodie counterparts, I'd envisage using these products as an occasional treat to sweeten up my beauty regime. I view them as the childlike comfort food of the beauty world and although I opt for natural, results-driven products which work hard for me on a daily basis, I'll certainly be reaching for these when I need a pick-me-up.
