Today I am showing you the rest of a recent Superdrug haul, focusing this time on Superdrug Own Brand Skincare. The first half of this haul, which included Makeup Revolution, can be found here.
Having previously purchased and tried Superdrug’s skincare and been impressed I wanted to replace some skincare products that aren’t cruelty free with Superdrug’s range.
Superdrug Vitamin E Micellar Water
As you might remember from my recent post about how I clean my makeup brushes, I wanted to replace the L’Oreal products with a cruelty free version once they ran out. With the Superdrug Vitamin E micellar water and cleaning oil costing only £2.99 I decided to give these a try. I’m hopeful that these will work just as well as the L’Oreal ones.
I’m excited to see if I notice the vitamin E in the results as this added ingredient is suppose to help protect “against environmental damage and premature skin ageing by combating the harmful effects of free radicals”.
Superdrug Vitamin E Dual Phase Cleansing Oil
The cleansing oil isn’t what I expected as it instructs to use it with cotton wool pads. One of the main reasons I enjoy the L’Oreal version is because of how quick the process is. You put some in your hands, rub it onto your face, add a bit of water, lather and rinse away. Having to add cotton pads into the process just seems like more of a hassle to me. Hopefully it’ll work just as well and I’ll get used to it though.
This is also the first time I’ve owned a duel phase product where you have to mix the solution before using. I’m not pointing that out for any reason other than I think the novelty of doing that will amuse me. Clearly I’m easily entertained in life.
Superdrug Natural Radiant Glycolic Toner
I have been using this, on and off, since purchasing it back with that collective haul I mentioned. With my irregular use of it I haven’t been able to determine if it meets all it’s claims. But I haven’t experienced any adverse affect whilst using it so thought I’d repurchase and attempt to test it’s properly.
These claims include; revive skins radiance, even out skin tone, refine pores, re-texturises skins surface, smoothes fine lines and fades pigment irregularities among many more.
Skin Republic Bubble Face Mask
This face mask came free as part of a Superdrug Skincare offer. Having never tried a bubble mask before I’m excited to see what this is like. “Purifying bubble mask sheet made from Activated Charcoal. When exposed to air the oxygenating mask begins to bubble and foam diving deep into the skin’s pores eliminating impurities. Fruit Acids exfoliate dead skin cells for a bright, fresh and luminous complexion.”
I think Superdrug is a great store, one reason for that are the offers and deals. In this haul (including the products from my Makeup Revolution Haul post) where I purchased a bit over £20 worth of products, I got a discount of £1.50, two freebies worth around £10 and points on my beauty card. Winning all round.
