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!

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.

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.

Hi there! I hope no one has to buy any emergency Christmas presents. But if you have to, and if you’re near a Superdrug store anyway, check out these Sweet Snuggles Lip Balms and Hands & Nails sets.

I think these sets are super cute – almost kawaii. The three lip balms feature images of a reindeer, a bunny and a fox. The hand cream also features a cute bunny image, and the nail file looks wintry as well.

The products are BUAV-approved, and they carry the Leaping Bunny logo. This means the products are cruelty-free! The best thing is these sets are £1 each!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

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

Hi there! About two weeks ago I checked out Superdrug’s Christmas offerings and bought quite a few bits for myself. One of these items was this cute Leafy & Lovely Summer Meadow Hand Lotion. I loved the pretty packaging and the price, so I bought it.

When I opened the box I was really pleased to find this pretty tube inside. It reminded me of expensive hand creams from L’Occitane or Roger & Gallet. So yes, I love it when cheap hand creams come in tubes because it makes them appear a lot more luxurious than they actually are.

This hand lotion is quite light, it feels silky, and it’s non-sticky. The scent is very lovely and the name Summer Meadow fits perfectly. I think it smells like the air on a warm spring day in the countryside. The scent is a bit unusual for this time of the year (keep in mind, this is one of Superdrug’s Christmas offerings), but it’s really, really nice.

This 60ml Leafy & Lovely Summer Meadow Hand Lotion would be a great stocking filler (or just a little treat). At the moment it’s £1 only – which is excellent value – so grab it while you can!
