Hi there! Today’s post is about the night cream I’ve been using since early July – Superdrug Naturally Radiant Renewing Night Cream. This product promises “to help revive skin’s radiance and even out skin tone” with the help of kiwi fruit extract, mulberry fruit extract, sugar beet extract and fruit acids. And the product claims to make skin smoother, softer, more refreshed and more energised within one week. So is the cream any good? Yes, absolutely. If you read on, I’ll tell you why.
The first thing I’ve noticed about this night cream is its lightweight, yet very moisturising formula. It feels great on my skin, and yes, it makes my skin feel soft and supple. I also like the subtle fragrance – this night cream smells extremely nice!
I’m happy with what this night cream does for the overall appearance of my skin. It really seems to even out my skin tone! Whilst I didn’t see much of a difference after one week, I did notice that my skin looked brighter and generally better after about three weeks. Now, eight weeks later, I can say I’m really satisfied with the cream because it did make my skin look considerably fresher and brighter.
I will continue to use this night cream and I can say for sure that I’ll buy it again. This night cream is now a permanent addition to my beauty staples! So in summary, I would definitely recommend it!
Superdrug Naturally Radiant Renewing Night Cream is available as 75ml for £5.99. I bought mine for £2.95 (half price offer), so don’t forget to check if there’s a deal before you buy! 🙂 If you’d like to try more products from this range, I’d recommend the face mask and the micro polish.

Hi there! It’s been a while since the last ‘which one is better’ post. However, I just realised that I bought these two body lotions with aloe vera very recently, so I thought I’d look into which one is better.
I’ve got Garnier’s Intensive 7 Days Hydrating Lotion with Aloe Vera and Superdrug’s Soothing Aloe Vera Body Lotion. And now The Battle Of The Aloe Vera Body Lotions is on! 🙂
Garnier’s Aloe Vera Body Lotion for normal skin is a very good moisturiser. It smells subtle, fresh and green. The lotion is fast-absorbing and non-sticky. It makes my skin feel elastic and nicely hydrated.
After using this body lotion once a day for three days my skin felt like silk. I could even get away with not using any body moisturiser at all for the next two days – and my skin still felt and looked great. This body lotion is for normal skin but it made such a difference to my dry and sensitive skin. I’ll definitely buy it again! 10 stars!
Superdrug’s Aloe Vera Body Lotion is a moisturiser for all skin types. It smells absolutely gorgeous. The lotion is fast-absorbing and non-sticky – just like Garnier’s body lotion. However, Superdrug’s body lotion is rather light which, I think, makes it more suitable for summer than for winter.
My skin feels nicely hydrated when I use this body lotion every day. But I really have to use it every day to maintain this effect. In my opinion, Superdrug’s body lotion is decent. But it wouldn’t be my first choice to ‘treat’ dry and sensitive skin in winter.
Verdict: Garnier’s body lotion doesn’t smell as nice as Superdrug’s, and Superdrug’s body lotion gets extra points for being BUAV-approved and cruelty-free (it carries the Leaping Bunny logo). However, because of its skin transforming powers (!) Garnier is the clear winner of The Battle Of The Aloe Vera Body Lotions.
Garnier’s Aloe Vera body lotion is available as 250ml for about £3 to £3.65 and 400ml for £5 to £5.50 – depending on where you shop. I got my 250ml bottle for £1.49 which is definitely good value. If you look for a bargain, the 250 ml bottle is currently £1.50 at Wilko’s.
Superdrug’s Aloe Vera body lotion is available as 375ml for £1.49. I spent 99p for this product and there is usually some kind of deal (usually 1/3 off) at Superdrug.
