Coco Cocktail From Bilou*

Coconut is the scent of summer to me and it instantly makes me feel brighter and so ready for the warmer months whenever I smell it.

I'm a huge Pina Colada lover too but anyway...

I was kindly sent these lovely products from Bilou. I had never used this brand before but I'd seen it floating around the blogosphere so I was excited to give them a try. The scent I was sent is Coco Cocktail - a sweet creamy coconutty scent.

I received 2 products: the Creamy Shower Foam and the 2 in 1 Bodyspray.


So, the bodyspray. I sprayed some of it on my arms and neck as a fragrance and it settled on my skin really quickly. When testing it out I fully expected the scent to fade in a couple of hours but it lasted ALL day. The scent was so bold, indulgent and sweet. I couldn't believe the strength of the scent from only a couple of squirts. I was leaving such a lovely scent wherever I went. I kept catching whiffs of a dreamy coconut smell and wondering what it was... then I kept remembering it was me.
It also left my skin feeling really supple and smooth. 
This works not only as a fragrance but as a deodorant! That's the 2 in 1 effect. The spray contains a special combination of active ingredients which not only nourish your skin but deodorise too. 

This will be perfect for beach days or holidays when you want to pack as little as possible. It's small enough to fit into a medium/large handbag but I'd love to see little travel sizes. Then it really would be perfect for on the go. 


I have used shower foam before and I didn't rate it. It was slimy, thick and just not very pleasant.
The second I squeezed this out I knew it was different.
The foam is so light and fluffy -so much so that when taking the photo below I tried to blow a cat hair off my hand and the foam flew right off my hand. The foam definitely holds its own though as I picked it up without ruining the neat blob I'd made - and super creamy. 
It's like a little fluffy cloud on your hand.
It leaves your skin feeling so soft and smelling divine! There isn't any nasty residue left anywhere either unlike the first brand I'd tried. 
Another thing I really like is that you can really feel that no space in the can is wasted. The can feels heavy and when sprayed there is no spluttering or excess bubbles. You're really getting your money's worth. 
The scent lingers on your skin for such a long time. I was leaving a lovely scent everywhere I went. 


The two products used in combination with each other just make for a gorgeous long lasting scent.
I guarantee there will be people asking what perfume you're wearing or telling you that you smell amazing.

I'm currently wearing the bodyspray and the sweet vanilla keeps coming through then blending with the coconut. Such an intoxicating blend.


The products are 100% vegan and the brand does not test on animals. Yay!
You can buy both of these products as well as many other scents/products from Superdrug. 
Both the foam and the bodyspray are £3.99.
I'd highly recommend checking out the brand and hopefully you'll find the perfect scent for you.

  4. These sound lovely, especially the shower foam. My favourite summer smell is honeysuckle but I don't think many products offer that, sadly! So nice that you've been sent something you really like! X

  11. I love the smell of coconut. I haven't tried out Bilou products before but I like how it's designed. Glad the products work well for you and love the coconut vibes from it. For some reason, I am a total sucker for fluffy stuff. It's great that it's vegan as well! Thanks for sharing :).

  13. I haven't heard of this brand before. I agree with the other posts, I can almost smell the coconut. I love Vanilla in the winter but maybe I could give these a go for the summer x

  16. Oh my god, I saw the Creamy Shower Foam in Superdrug the other day in a donut scent and I was super tempted to pick it up but I managed to control myself even though they’re super affordable - I’m kind of regretting it now though, because if the scent does linger, I want to constantly smell like donuts.. 😍🤷🏼‍♀️
