Superdrug Hand & Nail Cream and Anti-Ageing Hand Cream

Hi there! Today I’m reviewing Superdrug‘s Hand & Nail Cream and Superdrug‘s Anti-Ageing Hand Cream. I’ve previously tried 2 hand creams from the same collection, and you can read that review here. Now, onto the new review!

Superdrug‘s Hand & Nail Cream contains pro-vitamin B5 and sweet almond oil. It promises to nourish hands and to prevent nails from flaking and breaking. I’ve used this hand cream for a few weeks now, and I think it’s one of Superdrug’s better hand creams. I agree that it’s nourishing and that it makes my hands feel soft and smooth.

However, I don’t think it made any changes to my nails, and I’m not a big fan of the weird fragrance (which is best described as plastic pear). I’ll continue to use this hand cream as a foot cream, and I have no doubt it’ll do an amazing job.

Superdrug‘s Anti-Ageing Hand Cream with SPF, vitamins A, C and E, and co-enzyme Q10 promises to nourish hands and to minimise the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and age spots. I don’t think this hand cream can turn back time, but I’m satisfied that it provides sunscreen and that it makes my hands feel soft. I’ve also noticed that this hand cream has a more subtle fragrance which is actually pleasant. I think this is Superdrug’s best hand cream!

Superdrug‘s Hand & Nail Cream and Superdrug‘s Anti-Ageing Hand Cream. are available as 75ml for £1.49 each. These hand creams are suitable for vegans, they’re cruelty-free, and they carry the Leaping Bunny logo!

100% Awesome – Imperial Leather Foamy Banana Shower Cream, Bath Cream & Hand Wash

Hi there! Today’s post is about Imperial Leather‘s Foamy Banana products. At the moment Imperial Leather offers a shower cream, a bath cream, and a hand wash! And I think these products are 100% awesome!

Imperial Leather‘s Foamy Banana Shower Cream (250ml) is one of my favourite shower products. It’s happiness in a bottle. The fragrance is 100% foamy banana, but it’s not overly sweet. This is the perfect shower gel to start the day with. 11 stars!

Imperial Leather‘s Foamy Banana Bath Cream (500ml) is just as awsome as the shower cream. I love the non-drying formula and the insanely gorgeous fragrance. This is the perfect bath treat before bed time. 11 stars!

Imperial Leather‘s Foamy Banana Hand Wash (300ml) is one of the 2 best hand washes ever (the other one’s Carex’s Bubble Gum hand wash). It’s a real treat for hands! 11 stars!

I would recommend Imperial Leather’s Foamy Banana products to everyone! I’ve gone through multiple hand washes over the past year (or so), but I’ve only recently tried the shower gel and the bath cream (which I picked up for £1 each), and I feel like an idiot for not trying them sooner. So… if you’re not already in love with these products, you need to try them asap!

Vaseline Intensive Care Hand Cream + Anti-Bac

Hi there! Today’s post is about a product I picked up for £1Vaseline‘s Intensive Care Hand Cream + Anti-Bac. This hand cream promises to leave hands deeply moisturised and protected from germs. So it’s a 2 in 1 product. 🙂

I’ve been using this hand cream for a few days now, and I’m impressed. Whilst this hand cream is non-greasy, it moisturises my hands very well. I love the formula! It feels light, it makes my hands feel soft, and it’s not sticky at all, not even for a minute.

I’d also like to mention that this hand cream smells like pears – the fragrance is pleasant and very subtle!

I think this is a great hand cream! I can’t comment on whether it protects my hands from germs, but I’m happy with everything else!

Vaseline‘s Intensive Care Hand Cream + Anti-Bac is available as 75ml.

The Body Shop Almond Milk & Honey Calming & Protecting Hand Cream, Soothing & Caring Shower Cream And Body Butter

Hi there! Today’s post is about 3 products that were gifted to me – The Body Shop‘s Almond Milk & Honey Calming & Protecting Hand Cream, Soothing & Caring Shower Cream and Body Butter. These products are aimed at people with sensitive or dry skin.

I tried the hand cream first – and I liked it a lot! The hand cream feels nourishing, and it makes my skin feel super soft for hours. The almond milk and honey fragrance is sweet and warm – just lovely!

The shower cream is quite unusual because it’s pretty much like a cream! It feels nourishing, but it doesn’t really lather up, and it doesn’t feel very cleansing. But it smells great!

The body butter doesn’t smell as good as the hand cream or the shower cream, but it’s quick and easy to use because it melts into the skin. Having said that, this body butter isn’t as nourishing as I expected. After 12 hours the skin on my legs felt dry (the rest of my body was OK though).

I’m happy that I got the chance to test these products. However, I wouldn’t buy them for myself. Whilst the hand cream is great, I wouldn’t pay £5 for such a tiny tube!

The Body Shop Almond Milk & Honey hand cream is available as 30ml, the shower cream is available as 60ml and 250ml, and the body butter is available as 50ml and 200ml.

Nivea Age-Defying Q10 Hand Cream – With SPF!

Hi there! Since summer has basically arrived, I thought I should try and review a hand cream with SPF!

So today’s post is about Nivea’s Age Defying Q10 Hand Cream. This hand cream is aimed at people who want an anti-wrinkle hand cream that takes care of dry hands, protects hands from sun damage and helps prevent sun spots.

So how’s this hand cream? I think it’s great! It’s quite rich, so it’s not the formula you’d expect from a summer hand cream. But it’s not sticky and it’s absorbed quickly.

I don’t think that this hand cream made my hands appear younger. However, I’ve always taken care of my hands (I think that my hands look 15 years younger than they are), so I wouldn’t expect a new product to do wonders anyway.

I also don’t have any sun spots, but I am satisfied that this hand cream protects my skin from sun damage. My hands look as pale as they did in March, so I trust the SPF in this hand cream.

Oh, one more thing… this hand cream smells lovely. I’d describe the fragrance as happy and yellow – which is perfect for summer!

Nivea’s Age-Defying Q10 Hand Cream (which I would recommend to everyone) is available as 75ml for £4. Nivea used to do 100ml tubes (like the ones I have) for about the same price. However, Nivea updated (= shrunk) the packaging of this hand cream.

If you wonder if the 100ml tubes are still around… yes, they are! Just a few weeks ago I found this hand cream at Poundland (or Poundworld?). And I bought 5 tubes for £1 each. Fantastic value!

The Ultimate £1 Stocking Filler – Leafy & Lovely Floral Hand Lotion

Hi there! Today’s post is about Superdrug’s Leafy & Lovely Floral Hand Lotion – which I bought around Valentine’s Day. But since this hand lotion is still available (and it’s £1 only) I thought I should do a quick review.

First of all, I love the fancy packaging. The design is really cute, and the hand cream tube reminds me of considerably more expensive hand creams from The Body Shop, L’Occitane or Roger & Gallet. So I think this hand cream is a budget luxury product!
Superdrug Leafy Lovely Hand Cream 2
I also like the fragrance – it’s floral and green – like spring! By the way, the fragrance is the exact same fragrance that Superdrug used in last year’s Summer Meadow hand lotion. 🙂

Another thing that’s great is that this hand cream isn’t sticky. It’s absorbed quickly, but it makes my hands feel silky-soft. Very nice! So if you’re looking for a budget luxury hand cream (for yourself or as a stocking filler or as a gift…), this is what you want! Superdrug’s Leafy & Lovely Floral Hand Lotion is available as 60ml for £1 which is excellent value.

Have you tried this hand lotion, or would you like to try it? Feel free to let me know in the comments. And thanks for stopping by!

The Perfect Stocking Fillers For £1 – Superdrug Sweet Snuggles Lip Balms and Hands & Nails Sets

Hi there! Today’s post is about Superdrug’s Sweet Snuggles Lip Balm Set and Superdrug’s Sweet Snuggles Hand & Nail Set. I bought these two sets last year – for £1 each. And since Superdrug is now selling two almost identical sets (the design is a little different – but everything else is the same), I thought I’d tell you if they’re any good.
SD Sweet Snuggles Hand Nail Set2
Superdrug’s Sweet Snuggles Lip Balm Set consists of 3 lip balms. They’re vanilla-flavoured and they’re very nourishing. I also love the cute design – very fitting for the colder season! This year Superdrug is selling essentially the same lip balm set (as I said before, they chose a new design, but the name and the product are basically still the same) – and it’s available for £1. Considering the good quality of these lip balms, the set is a total steal!

Superdrug’s Sweet Snuggles Hand & Nail Set consists of a small 30ml hand lotion and a small emery board (= the perfect size for every cosmetic bag). I think the hand lotion is very nice. It’s wonderfully moisturising, but it’s not sticky at all. And it makes my hands feel so soft! I also like the delicious and sweet vanilla scent (it reminds me of Boots’ vanilla body butter). The emery board is nothing special – it does its job – like every other emery board. At the moment Superdrug does a near identical set (the emery board is the same, but this year’s hand lotion features a penguin image) wich is £1 only.

I would definitely recommend these little sets. They’re cute, they’re great stocking fillers, and the products are actually useful! I haven’t seen the new sets in store yet (online only), so I’m not sure about whether or not they carry the Leaping Bunny logo. My guess is that they do because last year’s sets were BUAV-approved, and they did carry the Leaping Bunny logo – and Superdrug’s own brand products are generally certified cruelty-free.
