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…
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. 🙂
