Hi there! Today’s post is about Superdrug’s Vitamin C Boost Mango & Papaya Body Scrub (with natural apricot kernel granules) which I picked up for half price (£2.45) not too long ago. This scrub is a limited edition product – needless to say I felt that I had to have it right away. 😉 So how’s the scrub? Is it any good? Read on, and I’ll let you know.
When I first opened the tub, I wasn’t blown away by the fragrance of this product. I thought it didn’t smell very natural. However, once I started to use the scrub, I changed my mind. That’s because once the scrub hit my skin, it smelled fruity, juicy and summery – and I realised the mango and papaya fragrance is actually quite authentic.
The scrub is also very effective. It removes dead skin cells and reveals soft and smooth skin almost instantly. This is what every body scrub should be like! So yes, I do like this body scrub, and I would recommend it. So if you’re looking for a body scrub that smells of juicy fruits and summer, look no further!
Superdrug’s Vitamin C Boost Mango & Papaya Body Scrub is available as 200ml for £4.99. But don’t miss out on deals – Superdrug does half price and BOGOF deals very often.

Hi there! Today I’m reviewing Calcot Manor’s De-Stress Body Buff. A while ago the luxurious Calcot Manor Spa teamed up with Tesco to come up with a spa-themed product range.
Some of these products have now hit the discount stores, so I bought quite a few of them. The first product I wanted to try was this body buff. So I tried it!
The first thing I noticed was the product’s fragrance. I’d describe it as a beautiful old-fashioned floral fragrance. My husband is not impressed. But I think the scent is gorgeous!
I also love the formula – because it’s fun! When you squeeze the product out of the tube, it comes out like a worm. 😀
But to me the big selling point is that the product is easy to distribute all over my body – almost like a shower gel. I think sugar scrubs can be quite a pain to use – but exfoliating my skin with this body buff is quick and easy.
I think this product is really good and I can definitely recommend it! The scent isn’t for everyone, and I would have expected it to be fresher and more youthful. But I actually like the strong vintage floral fragrance because it fits the traditional English spa theme.
Calcot Manot De-Stress Body Buff is available as 200ml for £4.99 at Tesco. However, I paid 99p at a discount store!
