100% Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Moisturising Cocoa Butter Body Lotion

Superdrug Cocoa Body LotionHi there! Today I’m reviewing another Superdrug product, Superdrug’s Moisturising Cocoa Butter Body Lotion.

Next to an aloe vera body lotion and a pro-vitamin B5 body lotion, this cocoa butter body lotion is one of three basic body lotions currently available at Superdrug.

This body lotion for all skin types contains cocoa butter and vitamin E. Superdrug claims that this body lotion “conditions and smoothes” to make skin soft and supple.

So how’s the body lotion? I have to say it’s a fairly decent moisturiser. It really makes my skin feel soft and nourished. In this regard it’s definitely better than the aloe vera body lotion.

However, the fragrance isn’t the nicest. Yes, it smells like cocoa, but unfortunately it’s a very artificial cocoa note. And I really don’t want my body to smell like a chemical cocoa cocktail.

What will I do with this product? You know I’m not wasteful. I’ll be using the lotion on my feet! 🙂

If you want to try Superdrug’s Cocoa Butter Body Lotion, it’s usually ÂŁ1.49 for the 475ml bottle. However, Superdrug’s body lotions are often on special for 99p. Also, this body lotion is vegan and cruelty-free. It’s BUAV-approved and it carries the Leaping Bunny logo.

Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Shower Gel Pomegranate & Grapefruit, Cherry & Almond

Hi there! Today’s post is about two Superdrug own-brand shower gels I bought a while ago. I forgot about them, but my continuing quest to use up all the toiletries I’ve stored outside the bathroom (don’t ask) led me to these two shower gels. Meet Superdrug Pomegranate & Grapefruit and Cherry & Almond.

Let me start with the bets bits: All of Superdrug’s products are BUAV-approved and carry the Leaping Bunny logo. These two shower gels are suitable for vegans and they’re cruelty-free! And they’re only 99p each!
2015 Superdrug Pomegranate PLUS Cherry Almond
When Superdrug turned 50, there were all kinds of ‘pink’ products to celebrate the occasion. Even big brands like Olay, Barry M and Sleek did a few exclusive editions – and Superdrug itself did the same. One of Superdrug’s limited edition anniversary products is this Sweet Sixties Pomegranate & Grapefruit shower gel. The fragrance of this shower gel isn’t unpleasant, but it’s a non-descript fruity something that’s quite forgettable. I’ll squeeze it into the hand soap dispenser.

Superdrug Cherry & Almond is a lovely shower gel. It smells of sweet and sunny cherries with a touch of almond. It’s absolutely delicious! It’s no replacement for the limited edition I Love… Cherry Almond Sparkle. This is because Superdrug’s shower gel focuses more on fruity cherries. And the I Love… cherry & almond products smell sweeter and more cake-like. However, this Superdrug shower gel is really yummy and I’ll buy it again.

Superdrug Cocoa Butter Body Lotion

Superdrug Cocoa Body LotionHi there! If you follow my blog, you have probably noticed that I’m not only in love with new beauty products, but also love a classic. I mean ‘products the internet has forgotten about’, or simply,  discontinued products.

Superdrug has launched a new body care range earlier this year. I’m really happy with the new products, but I do miss some of the old ones, like this one: The one and only Superdrug Cocoa Butter Body Lotion.

This was my last bottle. And I’ve just finished it. I’ve gone through the 300 ml bottle in under three weeks and now that it’s gone I know how much I’ll miss it.

Superdrug did a fantastic job with this product – it’s an incredible moisturiser. I’ve got really dry skin (and regular eczema outbreaks on top of that…), but this body lotion is so good that my skin feels dewy and soft even after a long day.

And then there’s the scent: warm, intense, natural and sweet cocoa powder – just yummy! There are other really nice cocoa butter products out there, but the scent of this one is quite unique. I will miss it!

Superdrug Cocoa Butter & Vanilla Body Butter

Hi there! A couple of weeks ago I reviewed the first of my new body butters from Superdrug. I’ve finished the Cherry & Macadamia butter and have moved on to Superdrug Cocoa Butter & Vanilla Body Butter.

In terms of quality, this body butter is really good. It contains vitamin E and pro-vitamin B5 and it leaves my skin feeling soft and silky. I couldn’t ask for more.
Superdrug Cocoa Vanilla
This body butter also smells lovely and sweet, but it’s no surprise since it contains cocoa butter and vanilla. The scent leans towards vanilla, but I don’t mind because it reminds me of vanilla milk.

Superdrug Cocoa Butter & Vanilla Body Butter is available as 200 ml for £3.99 – but watch out for half price offers. Just like the other Superdrug beauty products, this butter carries the Leaping Bunny logo. It is cruelty-free and suitable for vegans.
