Superdrug Vitamin E Bodycare Duo

Let's be honest: if someone asked us to pick between Boots and Superdrug, we would probably know exactly which one we'd choose. And, until I went cruelty-free I would have said Boots. Hell, I still enjoy wandering the aisles and browsing the many, many types of products they sell (a hobby which is always dangerous for the bank balance). But when it comes to cruelty-free products, Superdrug have the edge, with every single own-brand product bearing the Leaping Bunny logo. This means the products have been approved by Cruelty Free International (previously known as the BUAV). Cruelty Free International only permit brands to put this logo on their products if they don't conduct any animal testing whatsoever, so it's a quick and easy way to find out if something is cruelty-free or not. For more information, you can head over to Cruelty Free International's info pages..

The other good thing about Superdrug's own-brand products is that they're all reasonably priced, and as a result I've been buying all my everyday products there more and more. I do love a little bit of luxury now and again, but I also like to get good value for money, and the duo below provide just that. My winter skincare is already sorted.


Superdrug Vitamin E Sugar and Oil Body Scrub, £4.99 for 250ml
This is actually a repurchase  always a sign a product works well! This scrub strikes the ideal balance between being gentle and being gritty. Make no mistake, it can slough off dead skin (and correct botched gradual tan) with the best of them, but it won't leave your skin rubbed raw. I've been using the Vitamin E Scrub all summer and this is only my second tub, so you get your money's worth too, especially since the range is often on offer.

Superdrug Vitamin E All Over Body Cream with Argan Oil, £2.99 for 475ml
Originally I picked up the regular Vitamin E version of this, but the lady behind the counter recommend the argan oil version because it's apparently very popular (maybe she was trying to get me to spend more money? I swapped the two over, so I didn't pay anything extra, but she was very lovely). Anyway, I can see why people love it because it's got the perfect texture  thick enough to feel luxurious on the skin but not so thick that it feels gloopy, pleasant but not overpowering scent, and it's also incredibly moisturising, which is the most important thing. I'm so lazy when it comes to body lotion but I've been using this every day without fail  it's dreamy, especially when used in conjunction with the scrub. I believe this is limited edition *sobs* so go out and get a tub before it's all gone!

Have you tried any of Superdrug's own brand products? Do you remember to use body lotion or are you lazy like me? Let me know in the comments!
