A spot of pampering with Superdrug's Vitamin E All Over Body Cream

I've sort of had to force myself to blog today. For various reasons I'm having a bit of an anxiety driven day and I'd quite like to go back to bed and do absolutely nothing... But I know that won't make me feel better so I'm trying to motivate myself to get some blog posts done and then work on some tarot readings for friends and family. I'm trying to be quite gentle with myself and work my way slowly through my to-do list while making sure I spend some time pampering myself and looking after myself. I've found that self-care through touch, for example having a relaxing bath or smoothing on a nice body cream, is a great way of soothing myself when I'm feeling really anxious, and so I thought I'd review one of my all time favourite pampering treats: Superdrug Vitamin E All Over Body Cream. 

Never underestimate the power of an own brand product! I've been using Superdrug's Vitamin E range for years and I've got through countless tubs of their Vitamin E All Over Body Cream. I've been loyal through various packaging changes, but luckily the formula has remained consistent throughout. If you're looking for a luxuriously thick, soothing, beautiful smelling body cream then this is the one for you. 

Vitamin E All Over Body Cream, £2.99 for 475ml

Containing natural Vitamin E, the cream claims to 'defend the skin against environmental damage'. It certainly packs a powerful moisturising punch and successfully tackles patches of dry skin. It also contains coconut oil, key to skin hydration, as well as a 'skin conditioning multivitamin complex' consisting of vitamins A, B, F and H combined with horse chesnut extract, which apparently help further care for dry skin. The smell and texture are equally fantastic and it's a total pleasure to smother the cream all over after a relaxing bath or shower. It has quite a thick, satisfying consistency but is easy to rub in and sinks in really quickly. The smell is hard to describe but so, so good! 'Creamy', 'nourishing' and 'cocooning' spring to mind, although I'm aware they're not *technically* smells as such! It isn't fruity or floral, it's more sort of nutty I suppose. I've never come across another range that has quite the same smell; it really is unique and the scent lingers on the skin after applying, which I love. 

The tub is a very generous 475ml and lasts absolutely ages. Plus it only costs £2.99 which is  crazy! Don't let the bargain price put you off; it feels much more expensive and rivals all of The Body Shop creams and body butters I've used in terms of quality.  

I'd highly recommend Vitamin E All Over Body Cream for a spot of pampering, as it feels like a real treat and takes great care of dry skin. I'll be using this after a relaxing hot bath this evening. Sometimes a bit of 'me time' is the best way to recuperate and get back to your very best.
