100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Vitamin E Skin Care Shower Moisturiser

Hi there! Today’s post is about Superdrug‘s Vitamin E Skin Care Shower Moisturiser. This product promises soft and smooth skin as well as all-day hydration. It contains shea butter, horse chestnut extract, and vitamins A, E, B5, F and H.

How does it work? This is an in-shower moisturiser. Apply it to your wet skin whilst you’re still in the shower – pretty much right after you’ve rinsed off your shower gel. Once you’ve massaged the moisturiser into your skin, it’s already time to rinse it off as well. Then pat your skin dry with a towel. Done!

I’ve used this product on and off for quite some time now, and I must say that I love it! This is the perfect moisturiser for when I’m in a hurry because it takes just 1 minute to moisturise and rinse. And the result is beautifully hydrated skin. The lovely fragrance (which is the same as the All Over Body Cream) is an added bonus!

Superdrug‘s Vitamin E Skin Care Shower Moisturiser carries the Leaping Bunny logo. It’s vegan and certified cruelty-free!. The product is available as 250ml for £2.99. Superdrug runs Buy 1 Get 2nd Half Price Promotions on their Vitamin E Skin Care line almost all the time. 😉

Derma V10 Mango Body Butter

Hi there! Today’s post is about Derma V10‘s Mango Body Butter. Derma V10 is a brand that you can find at stores like Poundland, Home Bargains, etc. They do skin care products for the face and body, as well as hair colourants. I hadn’t tried any of their products until I picked up their mango body butter, so here’s what I think…

I’ve been using this body butter for a few days now, and I think it’s alright. It hydrates my skin reasonably well, and it doesn’t feel too sticky. It’s not the most suitable moisturiser for the hottest summer days, but most body butters are like this. I do like the mango fragrance because it’s very natural. The Body Shop should take note!

All in all, Derma V10‘s Mango Body Butter is a decent body butter. It’s not best one out there, but if you consider that the 220ml tub is £1 only, there’s no reason to complain at all. If you’re on a budget, you should definitely give this one a try!

Patisserie De Bain Cranberries & Cream Bath & Shower Crème and Hand & Body Lotion

Hi there! Today’s post is about Patisserie De Bain’s Cranberries & Cream Bath & Shower Cream and Hand & Body Lotion. I wouldn’t have chosen these products for myself, but I received them as a gift with purchase. And here’s what I think. 🙂
patisserie-de-bain-cranberries-cream-4
Patisserie De Bain’s Cranberries & Cream Bath & Shower Cream is quite alright. It lathers up well, and whilst it’s a bit drying, I think the fragrance is surprisingly well done. It’s too sweet for my taste, but I’d describe it as a mix of cranberries, custard and pink champagne. Again, not really my kind of fragrance, but if you like sweet fragrances in shower gels, I’d recommend this shower gel.

Patisserie De Bain’s Cranberries & Cream Hand & Body Lotion isn’t great because they didn’t get the fragrance right. I’d describe it as a sickly sweet mess. This one will be used as a foot cream!

If you’re interested, you can purchase Patisserie De Bain products through Rose & Co. England. Superdrug stocks a few of their products as well. Patisserie De Bain’s Cranberries & Cream Bath & Shower Cream and Hand & Body Lotion are available as 200ml each.

Garnier Intensive 7 Days Smoothing Nourishing Lotion With Cocoa Butter

Hi there! Today’s post is about Garnier Intensive 7 Days Smoothing Nourishing Lotion with Cocoa Butter.

This body lotion is aimed at people with dry to rough skin, and it promises to reinforce the skin barrier, and to maintain long-lasting hydration.

The product also claims to improve skin texture and to brighten skin.

I’ve been using this body lotion on and off for a few weeks now, and here’s what I think. 🙂

The first thing I need to mention is the product’s fragrance – it smells like a mix of shea butter and cocoa butter. It smells heavenly!

And I agree with Garnier’s claim that the lotion is fast-absorbing. Awesome stuff!

But the most important thing is… the hydration! I don’t know if this body lotion has brightened my skin tone, but it made my skin feel super smooth and soft. I love it!

To sum it up, this body lotion is pretty awesome! I would definitely recommend it. Garnier’s Intensive 7 Days Smoothing Nourishing Lotion With Shea Butter is available as 250ml and 400ml. The smaller bottle can be yours for as little as £1.49 if you keep your eyes peeled for special offers. 😉

Grace Cole Fruit Works Watermelon & Pink Grapefruit Body Butter

Hi there! Today’s post is about Grace Cole Fruit Works Watermelon & Pink Grapefruit Body Butter. This body butter promises to nourish and moisturise skin and to make skin feel smooth and supple. I’ve been using it for about a week now, and here’s what I think. 🙂

I agree that this body butter is nourishing. Once applied, it feels a bit sticky. But after a few minutes it’s perfectly fine. The fragrance is quite pleasant as well, but it’s pretty much watermelon only. I don’t smell any grapefruit at all. Anyhoo… I’m glad I bought this product! I didn’t love the matching shower gel, but the body butter is actually quite nice, and I would recommend it to anyone with dry skin!

Grace Cole Fruit Works Watermelon & Pink Grapefruit Body Butter is available as 235g. I paid 99p for the tub (Home Bargains). I’ve also reviewed the matching shower gel, and you can read the review here.

Boots Extracts Luscious Vanilla Body Scrub, Body Wash, Body Lotion & Body Butter

Hi there! Today’s post is about a number of vanilla-scented products from Boots’ Extracts collection. I’ve already reviewed Boots’ Extracts Luscious Vanilla Body Spray, so it was time to take a closer look at the matching body care products. 🙂

Let’s start with Boots Extracts Luscious Vanilla Body Scrub! I’ve tried a number of body scrubs from Boots, and this one is quite similar. This means that this scrub is on the gentler side. I’m satisfied that it exfoliates my skin, but I prefer grittier scrubs for my body. Having said that, I think this body scrub smells awesome!

Up next is Boots Extracts Luscious Vanilla Body Wash! I think this is a nice shower gel. It smells lovely and it’s not drying. Boots did a great job with this one.

Onto Boots Extracts Luscious Vanilla Body Lotion! This is a great little body lotion for when you’re in a hurry. It’s absorbed in no time, and it makes skin feel soft and hydrated all day. And the sweet and cuddly fragrance is an added bonus.

And last but not least… Boots Extracts Luscious Vanilla Body Butter. This is, without doubt, one of the best vanilla body butters out there. It feels nourishing, it’s not tacky at all, and, you guessed it, it makes your skin smell delicious! Well done, Boots!

Boots’ Extracts collection seems to be disappearing from the stores. The manager at my local store told me the entire line is getting a makeover. Let’s hope this is true!

Have you tried any Boots Extracts products? Which fragrance do you like best? Feel free to comment. And thanks for stopping by! 🙂

100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Vitamin E Skin Care All Over Body Cream With Dragon Fruit

Hi there! A few week’s ago I picked up Superdrug’s Vitamin E Skin Care All Over Body Cream With Dragon Fruit. I’ve tried a few different products from this collection – and I liked all of them. So how could I not give this one a try? 😉

This body cream is aimed at people with normal to dry skin. It promises to hydrate the skin and to defend it from environmental damage. This body cream contains a number of vitamins – E, A, B5, F and H – and coconut oil!

I’ve been using this body cream for a few days now, and I think it’s awesome! It’s easily absorbed, and it’s 100% non-sticky which makes it the perfect body cream for workday mornings (or whenever you’re in a hurry). I also believe that this body cream would be perfect for those warm summer days when you just can’t deal with heavy moisturisers. What else? I love the gorgeous fragrance – it’s warm, exotic and feminine. Yes, feminine. Not girly.

Superdrug’s Vitamin E Skin Care All Over Body Cream With Dragon Fruit is available as 475ml (the tub is huge!) for £2.99. 15% of the price of the product will go to Marie Curie – awesome stuff! This product is also 100% vegan and cruelty-free (it carries the Leaping Bunny logo).
