100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Refreshing Day Cream SPF 15 For Normal Skin

Hi there! A few weeks ago Superdrug ran a half price and triple points promotion on lots of different own-brand products. I’m a serial bargain hunter, so I took advantage of the best deals. 🙂 I stocked up on Naturally Radiant and Clearly Youthful products – and I tried Superdrug’s Refreshing Day Cream SPF 15 For Normal Skin.

I paid £1.69 for this 50ml pot – which is an incredible bargain. But even without any deals or promotions, this cream is usually £3.49 – so it’s still cheap. This cream is also 100% vegan and cruelty-free – it is BUAV-approved and it carries the Leaping Bunny logo! Now let’s get to the actual product review…
Superdrug Refreshing Day Cream SPF 15
I must say I’m surprised by how good this face cream is. I wasn’t expecting more than basic hydration. But this cream is actually nice. The formula is surprisingly rich – but despite this, the cream sits really well under my make-up. Another thing that’s great is that this cream makes my skin feel hydrated for hours – probably even for an entire day. I think this is fantastic considering I’ve got dry skin and eczema!

I’d have to deduct (imaginary) points though. I’m not in love with the fragrance. It’s not unpleasant, but it’s not great. (Yeah, years and years of using Olay products spoiled me!) And I don’t love that this cream comes in a pot. I don’t like to dip my fingers into a pot for weeks (or even months). I would have preferred a tube or a small bottle. But these two bits are down to personal preferences – the next person might adore the fragrance and / or love that this cream comes in a pot.

Anyway, I would definitely recommend this face cream, no matter if you’re on a budget or not. If you just want a reasonable face cream (with SPF 15) that moisturises your skin well, you should try it.

Superdrug’s Refreshing Day Cream SPF 15 For Normal Skin (and dry skin) is available as 50ml for £3.49. But keep your eyes peeled for half price and BOGOF promotions to bag even better bargains. 🙂

Superdrug Lotus Flower & Cherry Blossom Body Butter

Hi there! I’ve emptied two of the three Superdrug own brand body butters already, and now it’s time to review the third one which I’ve been using for the past week. So this little beauty is Superdrug Lotus Flower & Cherry Blossom Body Butter. Just like its ‘siblings’ (here and here), this body butter is a fabulous moisturiser with pro-vitamin B5 and vitamin E.

And what about the scent? Honestly, this butter smells heavenly. It bursts with freshness and sweetness – the perfect combination of lotus and cherry blossoms. Beautiful!

Superdrug Lotus Flower & Cherry Blossom Body Butter
is available as 200 ml for £3.99 – but I’ve bought it for half price, so make sure you keep an eye on what’s on special offer. And before I forget… just like the other Superdrug beauty products, this body butter carries the Leaping Bunny logo. It is cruelty-free and suitable for vegans.

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.

Superdrug Cherry & Macadamia Body Butter

Happy Easter everyone! A few months ago Superdrug introduced new body butters. I liked some of their ‘old’ butters very much, so I was interested to try the new products. I picked up this Cherry & Macadamia Body Butter and since I’ve used it almost every day for the past two weeks, I can safely say that I love it and will buy it again.
Superdrug Cherry Macadamia
This body butter is absolutely gorgeous. Its scent is sweet and quite strong, but it’s very natural and yummy. I think this body butter smells like cherry yoghurt on my skin!

I also love the formula. This body butter contains vitamin E and pro-vitamin B5 and it is very soft and easy to apply. It melts right into the skin without leaving a sticky film behind.

Superdrug Cherry & Macadamia Body Butter is available as 200ml for £3.99 – but there’s currently a half price offer, so you can snap it up for £1.99 only! And before I forget: This product carries the Leaping Bunny logo. It is cruelty-free and suitable for vegans.
