Beauty Sweeties review

Evening everyone, I took a day off from posting yesterday and I think I’m starting to get over my cold ๐Ÿ™‚ here’s another review for you.

While I was in Holland & Barrett recently I noticed that Beauty Sweeties and became curious, not because of its supposed benefits to the skin, hence the name, but because they were honeydew melon flavoured and Iโ€™ve never had that flavour in a sweet before.

I opened them up on the bus and dove straight in (after a photo, of course!) and was instantly unimpressed. They were unbearably sweet, reading the ingredients I saw that there were added sweeteners on top of sugary pure fruit juices. I mean honeydew melon is sweet enough all by itself, whatโ€™s the need? The coating of the sweets was sugar coated and the taste wasnโ€™t that great, though Iโ€™m not sure if this was due to them going out of date. I wouldnโ€™t buy them again, and if I was interested in improving my skin with biotin, Iโ€™d probably take a tablet. I picked up the 45g pack for 69p down from ยฃ1.99 so the discount was decent, and I was glad for this because I would have been heavily disappointed if I had bought the pack at its full price.

Ingredients: Apple juice from apple juice concentrate (58%), sweet melon juice from sweet melon juice concentrate (16%), sucrose, apple puree from apple puree concentrate (7%), glucose syrup, natural flavouring, gelling agent: pectin, antioxidant: ascorbic acid, lemon juice concentrate, aloe vera gel (0,01%), coenzyme Q10 (0,01%), biotin.

Have a great day, I hope Monday has been kind to you. I’m off to an interview tomorrow so fingers crossed.
