100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Refreshing Day Cream SPF 15 For Normal Skin

Hi there! A few weeks ago Superdrug ran a half price and triple points promotion on lots of different own-brand products. I’m a serial bargain hunter, so I took advantage of the best deals. 🙂 I stocked up on Naturally Radiant and Clearly Youthful products – and I tried Superdrug’s Refreshing Day Cream SPF 15 For Normal Skin.

I paid £1.69 for this 50ml pot – which is an incredible bargain. But even without any deals or promotions, this cream is usually £3.49 – so it’s still cheap. This cream is also 100% vegan and cruelty-free – it is BUAV-approved and it carries the Leaping Bunny logo! Now let’s get to the actual product review…
Superdrug Refreshing Day Cream SPF 15
I must say I’m surprised by how good this face cream is. I wasn’t expecting more than basic hydration. But this cream is actually nice. The formula is surprisingly rich – but despite this, the cream sits really well under my make-up. Another thing that’s great is that this cream makes my skin feel hydrated for hours – probably even for an entire day. I think this is fantastic considering I’ve got dry skin and eczema!

I’d have to deduct (imaginary) points though. I’m not in love with the fragrance. It’s not unpleasant, but it’s not great. (Yeah, years and years of using Olay products spoiled me!) And I don’t love that this cream comes in a pot. I don’t like to dip my fingers into a pot for weeks (or even months). I would have preferred a tube or a small bottle. But these two bits are down to personal preferences – the next person might adore the fragrance and / or love that this cream comes in a pot.

Anyway, I would definitely recommend this face cream, no matter if you’re on a budget or not. If you just want a reasonable face cream (with SPF 15) that moisturises your skin well, you should try it.

Superdrug’s Refreshing Day Cream SPF 15 For Normal Skin (and dry skin) is available as 50ml for £3.49. But keep your eyes peeled for half price and BOGOF promotions to bag even better bargains. 🙂

  1. You got this for £1.69! And even at full price it’s a steal. I think you guys are so much more ahead of us with vegan / cruelty free stuff. We still pay a premium for those claims.
    The scent of a product is a big factor for me…

    • Dirt cheap, I know! 🙂

      Yes, there’s lots of cruelty-free stuff to be found on our side of the pond. If you ever come to the UK, make sure you visit Boots and Superdrug before you hit the department stores. 😉


    • Here, on our side of the pond, we’re actually spoilt for choice when it comes to cruelty-free products. And cruelty-free usually isn’t expensive at all. If you ever visit the UK, make sure you hit the drugstores before anything else. xx

  2. I don’t like to stick my fingers directly into a tub of cream either. Do you have any of those little plastic spoons/spatulas lying around? They usually come with creams and such at least from Asian companies… I’ve used plastic tasting spoons before as well (the kind they give you samples on in ice cream shops). 😊

  3. Finally someone is thinking the same about jars! I do understand that they often are less harmfull to nature (at least when made from glass) and that you will be able to get even the last few drops but as someone whose skin is a total bitch I prefer things that I can squeeze or push instead of sticking my finger in – i mean even when cleaned it never is 100% clean.)
