Superdrug Wellbeing Hamper

Wednesday, 6 May 2015

I love Superdrug and have written about their wonderful Cardiff Beauty Studio in the past. They have a commitment to ethical trading and lobby government to reduce Value Added Tax on products they believe to be essential to customers health and they ensure that their own brand cosmetics, toiletries and household ranges carry the British Union for the Abolition of Vivisection BUAV leaping bunny logo which means they have not been tested on animals by Superdrug or our manufacturers. (They also don't avoid over a billion pounds worth of tax like Boots) All of this means they are my first stop when it comes to stocking up on holiday essentials and toiletries.

I've taken a few tumbles recently resulting in some stitches so I feel like my body needs to TLC and a good pamper so I was very pleased to receive a box of products that are exclusive to Superdrug to try out.

Lighterlife Fast Shakes and Lighterlife Fast Meal Replacement Bars - I love Lighterlife Fast products and have reviewed them on here before. For me they provide an easy way to reduce some bloating and lose the holiday/Christmas weight that can pile on so quickly. 5:2 dieting is a big trend right now but on a fast day, it’s almost impossible to get all your recommended daily allowances (RDAs) of the essential vitamins and minerals your body needs if you were to prepare meals yourself. LighterLife Fastpacks are specially formulated nutritional food options that contain all the protein, fibre, vitamins and minerals required. The idea behind LighterLife Fast is to make life easier on those fast days providing you with four LighterLife Fastpacks  for those 600 calorie days. Super easy!

Scholl Luxury Pedicure Set - Scholl's Luxury Pedicure Set exclusive to Superdrug, includes the best-selling and ready to use Velvet Smooth Express Pedi Gadget and Intense Serum. I absolutely loved this, it left my feet looking and feeling good. I won't be ashamed to wear my sandals on holiday on June with this set. No more cracked heels and dry skin for me. 

Barebar Apple & Cinnamon - BareBar is a natural snack bar made only from pure, nutritious fruits and berries. The product is suitable for anyone as it is free from lactose, glucose, additives and animal-derived ingredients, BareBar is the perfect choice for those with dietary restrictions. These retail for £1.29 and are the perfect tasty snack.

Leader Detox Smoothie - I'm way too lazy to chop up loads of fruit and veg to make a smoothie and I've never got 10 different ingredients in my house to blend up so this sachet is perfect for someone like me or to take to work. All-in-one” Superfood Smoothies are made from the pure and natural ingredients and contain a balanced mix of essential dietary components like herbs, fruits and vegetables.You just add water, mix and drink. No messy blenders to clean up after either, hurrah!

Barefoot Peppermint and Plum Foot Lotion - Great smelling product that left my feet feeling super smooth and hydrated. This £4 tube will last you ages as you only need a small amount. 

Silver Line Complete Skin Beauty Tablets - This pack contains 28 days worth of Vitamin, Zinc, Argan Oil and Wheatgerm tablets meaning you take three tablets in total each day with a meal.I have to be careful when I take these because I take medication for my acne that stops working if you take them the same time as you take Zinc but I'm OK if I take it at different times of the day. Wheatgerm capsules offer numerous skin benefitting properties, ranging from softening and moisturising your skin to boosting its regenerative powers. It’s an excellent anti-ageing oil, works well to diminish fine lines and wrinkles and also generally supports a healthy, glowing complexion. The argan oil capsules promote overall skin health. It’s perfect for skin conditions such as psoriasis, eczema and acne rosacea, but is also great simply for nourishing and feeding the skin. I might report back on these after taking them for a month.

Have you tried any of these products before? What are your 'must have' products to help you feel healthy?


  1. I didn't have a chance to try any of these product but I did order myself a Scholl pedicure set as it looks like summer must have.

  2. This looks like an amazing bunch of products, the skin beauty tablets look amazing, I might have to give them a try! x

  3. The tablets sound intriguing, I've never tried them though.

  4. The things look great. I have tried the freeman foot scrub and it is really good. As for the face scrubs it is better to try out skin peeling treatment that leaves your skin young and smooth.

  5. New Diet Taps into Innovative Idea to Help Dieters Get Rid Of 12-23 Pounds in Only 21 Days!
