Superdrug’s Some Body
Hello, all of you beautiful people! How are you all today? I hope you are feeling better than I have lately. I seemed to have had illness upon illness lately and have been out of action resting for a while. I am, however, feeling a bit better so hopefully on the road to a full recovery.
One thing that has been really helping me throughout these illness’ is the amazing new health and wellness range from Superdrug, called Some Body. Aimed more towards weight loss than gain. But mainly focusing on promoting a healthy mind, body and lifestyle. They kindly sent me over a few products for me to try and I am going to explain why I wanted to try it. How I have been using it and if it’s actually any good.
Initially, before all the sickness, I had one key reason for wanting to try it. My weight. I would, also, like to point out that I am coming from the other end of the spectrum here. I feel I represent a large portion of women who don’t really have a voice. I am a super skinny (and petite) person who does not have an eating disorder or medical reason for my slender frame. In fact, my appetite has always been huge and I am a dessert before dinner kinda gal, for sure.
Much to the envy of many people I know I can eat what I like and don’t put on any weight. I do get terrible skin from bad eating habits so I don’t get off scot free. I would like to be a little curvier and have a more womanly figure though. I thought this would be a great place to start. When you want to gain weight it is healthier to try and gain lean weight. So, the whey and protein will help aid in putting on this lean fat I need. This means you can also replace the processed fats you might consume with these products instead. I am going to stress NOTHING like this will work properly for you if your normal diet isn’t a varied, healthy diet.
So, here is a good look at everything I was sent. We have the Chocolate protein powder. There is also a Salted Fudge Bar and finally this really cool Sweat Smile Repeat Bottle. I want to start by mentioning how reflective the packing is. Clean but bright and full of energy. I also am in love with the slogan on the bottle. It makes you feel motivated as your shaking your shake!
As I mentioned above I am a dessert before dinner kind of girl and I was no different here and tucked straight into the Salted Fudge Protein Bar. Firstly the smell was so divine. Deep, rich and cakey it really did get my mouth watering. Always a good sign with health-conscious food. Although the texture was very dense it wasn’t a heavy snack. Moist and moreish the sweetness of the fudge is so delicious. Leaving a salted aftertaste to help recline your urges for more sweetness. I also found it to be appropriately filling. I didn’t find I wanted another snack and I didn’t feel it was too much. This is a go-to snack to pop in your bag for on the go mums, my lovely gym bunnies or for at work.
Now, the first time I tried the shake I braved it bare. Yes, you read that correctly just the powder and some almond milk. To be fair it was fine. A little bit of the strange protein aftertaste but the cocoa really is nice and sweet and almost enough to cover it completely. To help it along though, for my second shake, I added some honey and chia seeds.
The shake is so easy to make just add your milk or water. Add your scoops then add your honey and chia seeds. That’s all you need to do to have a perfect on the go beverage. It will not only help fill you up in between meals but paired with the protein bar is pure delight.
I love how easy and tasty it is that it’s easy to forget it’s really good for you. With the added benefits of the honey and chia seeds, I am feeling the energy already.
The bottle, for me, is just so useful though! The scoops from the powder fit inside the top and once you have finished a shake rinse well and fill with water. It is not only helping me consume my shakes and aiding my health. but has become a valid reminder to drink more water. With its catchy slogan, how can I not feel ready to better my health and wellness?
Super easy to clean so you don’t end up with a gunky lid and wide enough to get a sponge in. I have to say it is one of my favourite bottles to date. Just so handy for day to day trips regardless of where you are. Meaning no more excuses for chips for lunch (lol).
Superdrug has a wide range of products available in the Some Body range and I am not done trying them yet! Next, I think I will give the detox tea a try. I love tea and having a healthier alternative would be good.
So, whether you’d like to lose weight or, like me, gain weight I suggest giving the Some Body range a try. I have only been testing it for a couple of weeks so am yet to see physical results. But I am less hungry and snacking less and feel more satisfied when I eat a good meal. I will keep you guys posted on my progress so be sure to check my social media pages. have you ever tried anything like this? Let us know in the comments below.
Thank you so much to Superdrug for sending this over to me. Hopefully, I can have a bum for summer this year now!!
Lots of Love,
