Superdrug Vitamin E All Over Body Cream

I was very kindly sent a tub of Superdrug Vitamin E All Over Body Cream to review.  I have to be honest and say that my general morning routine doesn't really allow for a great deal of slathering on of unguents and lotions, certainly not on my body, all the time goes on my hair and face - the bits people are going to see!  I do also feel that when you are not loving your body it often doesnt get the attention it deserves, so the arrival of this coinciding with my latest attack of the mighty weight issue was timely indeed!

The first thing that was apparent about this was that it is a mahoosive tub of body cream 475ml to be exact which for £2.99 is seriously barginous - a big tub of aqeous cream would be about the same price, but who would want to smear that all over themselves?!

So what do Superdrug have to say about this:
 
Give your skin an intensive hydrating treat every day with this all over body cream that's rich in naturally soured Vitamin E. Non-greasy and easily absorbed, it will moisturise, soften and smooth your skin to leave it feeling refreshed and looking radiant. Our naturally sourced vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant which revitalises and protects the skin, helping to combat the damaging effects of the environment and prevent premature ageing.

So no terrific claims that it will rid your body of cellulite or make your more toned, just that it will hydrate and moisturise and I have to say it does the job very nicely!  I hate putting on body cream and then finding that it leaves my skin feeling greasy and you have to haul your jeans up over oil slick legs, yuk!  This soaks in really well and left my skin feeling soft and very comfortable with a light, delicate scent that wont upstage your perfume but just smells clean and light, lovely.

The only downside to this for me was that the tub has no seal, either external or underneath the lid, that said it wouldn't be hard to tell if a tub had been played with and for £2.99 you cant have everything!

You know that great big tub of cream that you keep by the bed and smooth onto elbows and knees at bed time, or rub into your cuticles cos your hand cream is still in the kitchen, or grab big handfuls of when you skin suddenly feels dry and tight?  This is the perfect big tub of cream! Its cheap enough that you can be generous without breaking the bank and nice enough to use that you want to be generous with it!
