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! It’s been a while since I’ve used anything from my Boots Extracts For All Seasons Christmas gift set (the one I gifted to myself on Boxing Day when the half price sale started). So I thought it’s time to try another product line. Meet Boots Extracts Sweet Mango Body Wash, Body Butter and Body Scrub.
These products are travel-sized (75ml scrub, 75ml body wash, 50ml body butter). And with the 50% off deal I paid £2.50 in total for these three products. That’s not too bad, I think. 🙂 Now let’s get to the products!
Boots Extracts Sweet Mango Body Scrub is OK. It smells wonderfully sweet and juicy, but the scrub is too gentle for my liking. I prefer ‘scrubbier’ scrubs for my body.
I really like the Boots Extracts Sweet Mango Body Wash. It smells absolutely lovely and it produces quite a lather! Another good thing is that this body wash isn’t drying at all. Well done, Boots!
The Boots Extracts Sweet Mango Body Butter is my favourite of this trio. This mango body butter smells insanely delightful, it’s rich and moisturising, and the formula is a dream – it’s a true butter, but it’s not sticky! Other high street brands should take note – THIS is the perfect mango body butter!
Boots Extracts Sweet Mango is available as:
400ml Sugar Scrub (which is not the product I reviewed today) for £6.50,
200ml Body Wash for £4,
200ml Body Butter for £6,
150ml Body Spray for £3.50.
